So why is Invisalign in Burnham so good?
You can banish the embarrassment of metal braces from your thoughts because Invisalign is an option which is so discreet it is almost invisible! Yes, you heard correctly. The material used for these aligners is clear so it is very hard to see them once they are in a patient’s mouth. The benefits don’t stop there either as, although they should be worn 22 hours of the day, you can function pretty much as normal, because they can be taken out when eating or brushing your teeth.
As modern day dental solutions go, this one is a real winner and will have you well on the way to the smile that you desire!
So how does Invisalign work?
A series of aligners are crafted individually, bespoke for each patient and they are worn for around two weeks at a time until the next aligners are fitted. The alignment of teeth needs to be done gradually and gently so as not to cause shrinkage in the roots which can cause the teeth to be unstable. The end timescale does vary from person to person, but you can expect to have the final result in around a year.
What do the aligners feel like when worn?
As this treatment is fairly slow, it is generally pain-free, but a slight tenderness is to be expected when you change aligners every two weeks. But as with anything new, it just takes a little time to get used to this treatment, most patients forget they have these clear miracle workers in their mouth after a while and have no problems at all.
Oral health before, during and after Invisalign
Oral health can be an issue if your teeth are very crooked or overlapping, why? Because it can be very hard to floss and clean the gums and teeth in between. When this is the case, it can mean problems later down the road, such as gum disease. To maintain your lovely new smile, it is very important to get on board with a good home oral health regime of brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day.
With Invisalign in Burnham, getting your teeth straightened will not just allow your confidence and self-esteem to get a super big boost, but your health too!
