Everything you should know about Invisalign

Improve your confidence and your dental health by having your teeth straightened with Invisalign in Maidstone.

Our clinic, Fresh Dental Care supply Invisalign aligners to those who want to attain their dream smile.

In this article, we’ll discuss why Invisalign or invisible braces is one of the best methods for straightening your teeth.

How Invisalign works

Traditional appliances pull your teeth into place using a wiring system. Although effective, conventional methods for straightening teeth are imperfect, drawn-out and sometimes incredibly uncomfortable.

On the other hand, Invisalign uses plastic moulds designed by advanced technology that fit perfectly over your teeth and gums. These pieces of plastic are customised aligners that are unique to the shape of your mouth.

Multiple sets are used throughout your treatment, each pair gently shifting a couple of teeth at a time.

The advantages that Invisalign have over regular braces are innumerable, providing wearers with an enhanced user experience that’s mostly pleasant.

What are these advantages?

Maximised comfort

With smooth plastic attached to your teeth rather than metal, wearing this device is comfortable. Although it will take some time for your mouth to adjust to the aligners, you won’t have to endure the discomfort of having the wires on your metal braces adjusted and tightened.

Treatments that work undetected

Does the appearance of regular braces stop you from getting treatment? The clear aligners used for this procedure boast an understated and unnoticeable design. No one but you, your orthodontist and the people you tell, will know that you’re undergoing treatment!

A device that you can remove for short periods

You can enjoy short breaks from your device because it is removable. Additionally, since you must slip the device from your mouth to eat or brush your teeth, you won’t have to make changes to your diet or cleaning regimen.

However, despite being able to remove the gadget whenever necessary, you should try to keep it in for most of the time to optimise its effectiveness as a straightening device.

Substantially shorter treatment time

Metal braces realign teeth slowly, with the average treatment time spanning 18 to 24 months. Treatment for Invisalign in Maidstone, on the other hand, varies between 6 and 18 months depending on the nature of your orthodontic issue.

For whom is Invisalign in Maidstone suitable?

Both teens and adults requiring corrective dental work to improve their smile and arrange their teeth in an orderly fashion will benefit using Invisalign aligners.

For users going through adolescence, a time fraught by insecurities and feelings of self-consciousness, Invisalign provides the ideal teeth-straightening solution because of its nearly invisible appearance. At the same time, adult users will enjoy these features too, especially among professionals climbing the corporate ladder.

How do I know if I’m a candidate?

We can’t guarantee that you’ll be a viable candidate. We’ll have first to conduct a case assessment to determine whether you’re a good fit. If it’s right for you, we’ll begin the process of devising a bespoke treatment for you.
