Want to know the advantages of Invisalign? 5 highlighted by our team at Fresh Dental
When you are looking for a straightforward way to get a more aligned smile as an adult, it can seem that traditional braces are the only viable option.
After all, many people were told growing up by their dentists and parents that once they reached a certain age, orthodontic treatments would no longer work correctly. And in the past, that may have been the case.
In 2020 however, there are many ways to get a straighter smile as an adult and few of them involve the wearing of metal braces. There are now more discrete options, including clear and invisible braces which, as their names suggest, are perfect for correcting misaligned teeth without attracting unwanted stares.
At Fresh Dental Care, our expert team has helped thousands of adult and teenage patients achieve the smile they have always wanted, using the infamous brace Invisalign in Maidstone. Easy to adapt to a busy lifestyle, this brace is perfect for those who don’t want to attend multiple dental check-ups; you can even track progress through an app on your smartphone! Brilliant!
But what are some of the other advantages that Invisalign in Maidstone has to offer? Read on to find out!
Better oral health
Quite unusual to anyone new to adult dental care, this brace is removable.
While you will need the highest level of discipline to keep it in for the required 22 hours a day, this makes it easier to keep your teeth and gums in good condition for the duration of the treatment. Simply remove the brace, brush, floss and rinse, then pop it back in again!
As mentioned before, Invisalign in Maidstone is removable.
This will have a good impact on your general dental hygiene but it also enables you to take it out when you are eating, giving talks at work or playing sports. Remember, you will need to wear it for a minimum of 22 hours a day.
Many of our patients at Fresh Dental have been surprised to learn that when it comes to a removable brace that requires no adjusting, the treatment is actually faster than traditional aligners.
Indeed, the average time that a person wears this brand of invisible brace for is about 6 months, meaning it offers an accelerated and discrete alternative to metal braces. However, this will depend on your individual case and the severity of the alignment being corrected.
What are the advantages of a clear brace?
Well, for starters, no one will be able to see it! So you can be out socialising after a long day at work and nobody will be able to spot the brace. Secondly, it is easier to spot damage - when you remove this brace, always examine the plastic for signs of wear. If you notice anything, contact our team.
And finally, this brace offers a high success rate! Similar to traditional aligners, there is a 96% success rate long-term, meaning that straight smile will last a lifetime. Perfect!
