Although braces are the traditional treatment for uneven or crooked teeth, dental technology has advanced a lot since they were first invented and there are many more options now available. One option is to talk to our dentists about a clear aligner, such as Invisalign in Kings Hill.
Invisalign – what exactly is it?
The Invisalign System is a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn for one or two weeks at a time, then exchanged for another set, and so on until optimum teeth correction is reached. At the start of treatment, your treatment plan will be plotted out using the latest 3D technology at our practice in Kings Hill. Invisalign is designed to ensure you know what to expect every step of the way. Each stage of your treatment will correct the teeth in a specific way, making results predictable and successful.
Why choose Invisalign?
As producers of the world’s first clear aligners, Invisalign know teeth. In a world where people are more concerned about appearance than ever before, it is important to have the option to improve your smile and this can be done easily and very discreetly with Invisalign in Kings Hill. The aligners themselves are nearly invisible and people are not likely to notice you are wearing them. Invisalign aligners are designed to be removed for eating, so there is no need to worry about restricting your diet.
Because they are removable, Invisalign are ideal for people who play contact sports, or professionals whose appearance is particularly important. However, the aligners do need to be worn for a recommended 22 hours a day. Most patients find that the aligners don’t affect their speech, so this should not be a concern.
Problems that can be corrected with Invisalign in Kings Hill
A number of orthodontic issues can be correcting using Invisalign in Kings Hill. Problems with bite, such as overbite, underbite and crossbite can all be adjusted. Gaps between the teeth and overcrowded teeth can also be corrected. Many people who wore braces when young now find that their teeth have shifted as they’ve got older. This is something that can usually be corrected with Invisalign in Kings Hill.
