You may have heard about Invisalign through advertising, friends or your Newcastle dentist. If someone has recommended or suggested that you could try Invisalign treatment, you might be wondering what the treatment actually is and whether it would be appropriate for you.
Invisalign treatment is ideal for patients who:
- Have crowded teeth
- Have misaligned or crooked teeth
- Have restricted functionality in their mouth due to crooked teeth
- Want to improve their smile’s appearance
- Want to boost their self-confidence with a rejuvenated smile
Essentially, Invisalign treatment involves the use of clear aligners to gradually readjust the alignment of your smile over time. The sets of clear Invisalign aligners are custom-made to suit the exact shape and condition of your teeth. Every time you switch to a new set of aligners (usually every two weeks), you will progress to a new stage of realignment.
The plastic aligners are made with BPA free thermoplastic material and the time for your Invisalign treatment to be completed will vary from patient to patient. Invisalign treatment is essentially invisible (due to the clear nature of the aligners) and most people describe the process as being completely pain-free. The best way to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign is by talking to your trusted Newcastle dentist to get their advice and recommendations.
Why is Invisalign different from braces?
Invisalign and braces are both orthodontic treatments, however orthodontic technology has progressed wondrously in recent years, and one of the most leading-edge ideas to be welcomed into the industry is clear aligners. There is no denying that clear aligners are the way of the future – the aligners are more discreet and simplistic than any other form of aligners designed before.
