If your teeth are crooked, or do not align properly, then you may need an orthodontist. An orthodontist is a dentist who has expertise in realigning the teeth and jaw in order to achieve and maintain a perfect bite.
If I am an adult who has crooked teeth, do I need to get fixed braces?
Fixed braces are not the only option, and we understand that adults may be reluctant to have fixed braces fitted. Fixed braces are usually only necessary when the teeth are severely crooked and are usually for adolescent teeth that have not fully grown. There are many fantastic solutions that are available at One Smile Oral Care, and we want to ensure through our consultation, that we can deliver the best possible treatment.
One of the most prevalent and effective forms of cosmetic dentistry is that of Invisalign, which uses a series of plastic, transparent braces that fit over the teeth, in order to gradually realign them. They are fully removable, and do not involve any wires, bands, or metal inside the mouth, some of which can be painful. If you are looking for Invisalign in Kings Hill, then One Smile Oral Care has an excellent Invisalign treatment process ready for you.
How does Invisalign work?
If you are interested in Invisalign in Kings Hill, then consult our website, or simply ask one of our dentists how it works. Essentially, the process begins with a 3D projection of your teeth, this will provide a ‘blueprint’ for what your teeth should look like. A series of braces are then made, with each one becoming closer to the final projection. A replacement brace will be needed every two weeks, this will be waiting for you as soon as you need it.
Are there any conditions?
Invisalign is only available for adults, as it is only effective on teeth that are fully grown. Equally, while these are removable braces, they must be worn almost all the time, from between 20 to 22 hours a day. This means that there is a responsibility to maintain wearing the brace for this time period, for some people this can be difficult, and not doing so can prove harmful to the treatment process.
Are there any downsides?
If you are concerned about getting Invisalign in Kings Hill, then do not hesitate to contact us for a consultation. It is our duty at One Smile Oral Care to provide the highest standard of customer service that we possibly can, which means remaining completely transparent about the treatments we offer. The downsides to Invisalign are that it can be more expensive than other treatments, and possibly not as effective in some cases. The treatment also takes longer than other methods due to the gradual nature of the teeth movement when using them .
What are the benefits?
Invisalign has been proven to be extremely effective at straightening teeth, and is a gentle process, so there is usually less discomfort when compared to other methods. The transparent nature of the brace means that it is virtually invisible, and your treatment will remain largely unnoticed.
