Want straighter teeth but worried about having to wear braces? With the return of the new school year, the last thing you need is to worry about hiding your teeth when you smile. The good news is there is an alternative to traditional braces that can fix your teeth and help you regain your confidence.
Invisalign braces are 100% invisible, and they produce results in less time than traditional braces. Read on to find out more about this revolutionary tooth straightening approach.
What are Invisalign aligners?
Invisalign aligners are clear, custom-built aligners produced by Invisalign specialists. 3D digital scans are taken of the teeth, before the aligners are created – so that they fit snugly and comfortably. Additionally, there are no brackets or wires to worry about, and they are created from a flexible plastic.
The aligners are created to apply just the right amount of pressure to the areas needed, gradually helping to straighten out the teeth. It can take up to six months for the aligners to work, and they need to be worn for 20-22 hours each day.
You will need to remove the aligners to eat and clean your teeth, but other than that they stay firmly in place.
Benefits of Invisalign aligners
There are many benefits of choosing Invisalign aligners over traditional braces. The fact that you can’t see them and there are no brackets or wires to worry about is one of the main ones. This can be very reassuring for students who may worry about how they might look at school. Other benefits include:
- More comfortable than traditional braces
- Removable for eating and playing sports
- No risk of emergency dental visits due to broken wires
- Personalised to match your teeth
Those who wear Invisalign aligners claim they are much more comfortable than traditional braces. This, alongside the other many benefits, is because they are created to accurately fit your mouth. The personalised service means you benefit from the best possible results.
You will need to be monitored throughout the six months you are wearing the aligners. This will accommodate any changes as your teeth move into position.
