A guide to Invisalign from one of our dentists
At Fresh Dental Care, we are excited to be offering Invisalign Maidstone to our patients since it can really help to rejuvenate and straighten their smiles. If you decide you want this treatment, then don’t hesitate to contact us as our dentists are very experienced in providing it, so you can rest assured knowing you’ll be in good hands.
What is it?
You may be wondering what Invisalign Maidstone actually is, and it simply involves the use of clear, plastic aligners that straighten your teeth over time. We provide you with multiple aligners, and each one is slightly different, gently moving your teeth into the desired position as you change to the next one.
At our practice, we have divided this treatment up into 4 simple steps. The first step is for us to take you through the case assessment, which is a set of photos that show different severities of misalignment. We can match these as closely as possible to your teeth to help us quickly determine whether you are eligible for the treatment.
If we think you are eligible, then we can proceed to the second step, which will involve us taking scans, pictures, x-rays and/or a dental impression to prepare for the creation of your custom aligners. This step is vital in ensuring that we provide you with the most specific treatment for your needs.
The third step is when we will give your aligners, which you can wear comfortably for 22 hours a day. We recommend that you wear your aligners for this amount of time to get the full effectiveness of the treatment. The aligners are removable, meaning that you can still eat whatever you want and keep up with your usual oral hygiene routine.
The fourth step involves you coming to our clinic every 4-6 weeks so that we can check on your progress and provide you with more aligners when needed. These regular checkups will also allow us to discuss any questions you may have during the process.
Furthermore, we recommend that you use the retainers we can provide as it ensures that your smile does not revert to its original position.
Why should you choose Invisalign?
Many advantages come with getting this treatment, and they are the reason for the continuous rise in Invisalign’s popularity.
One of the main reasons some people choose Invisalign Maidstone is the discreet look of the aligners. Due to their clear plastic material and the fact that they can be custom-made for your teeth, the aligners are barely visible. This can be beneficial if you have a professional career or busy social life and don’t want any unwanted attention drawn to your teeth.
Another thing our patients love about this treatment is how easy the process is. There are no invasive surgeries involved, and as mentioned above, our process only involves 4 simple steps. It is great if you are someone who gets worried about having surgery and/or coming to the practice.
