You have a wedding to go to next year and you are the bride who is none too happy with her crooked teeth! What can you do? First of all, don’t panic, there are plenty of solutions for wonky or overlapping teeth that can be straightened out in this time frame. At The Dental Surgery Burnham we have a whole host of treatments for every kind of dental problem and Invisalign is one of them.
OK, what are my options then?
If you have an important event coming up soon we know that your wonky teeth can really spoil your day and that traditional braces may take too long for you. There are a number of modern-day solutions and one of these is Invisalign in Burnham, this treatment could be the answer to your happy, smiley, wedding prayers!
So how does Invisalign in Burnham work?
Traditional braces can make people self-conscious and they can take longer than more contemporary systems to straighten your teeth. With new dental treatments such as this, there are no visible metal wires to worry about as Invisalign aligners are clear, making them virtually impossible to see.
Computer technology is the name of the game with this solution, it maps out and plans the procedure from start to finish. A series of aligners are crafted specifically for each patient and they are worn a couple of weeks at a time to allow teeth to slowly move. Once the two weeks is ended, the patient wears the next set of teeth aligners provided.
How long will all this take?
These less intrusive clear solutions are worn for around 20 hours a day and allow you to function as normal, as they can be taken out for brushing and flossing your teeth and even eating. The end result usually takes around a year but may vary from patient to patient.
Can everyone have this treatment?
Sometimes those who have very severe dental issues are not perfect candidates for this option. Those who have a very large overbite, for example, would need more specialised procedures. However, in general, Invisalign in Burnham is ideal for treating crowded, gappy, protruding or crooked teeth.
Oral health before, during and after Invisalign
It is not just a person’s self-esteem that can be knocked with crooked teeth, but also, in some cases, their health! Overlapping teeth can be very hard to clean, especially in between, and this can cause bacteria and plaque to build up, with the possible outcome of gum disease. By getting your teeth straightened you will reap the benefits not just of more self-confidence but also a happier, healthier mouth.
As soon as you step through the door of our dental practice, you will see the road ahead, of a smile that you have always dreamt of, within reaching distance. These clear aligners will be working away discreetly, whilst you get on with your life and wait in anticipation for the teeth that you deserve!
