There are different ways in which you can achieve a beautiful smile. If you currently have mild to moderate alignment issues such as crossbites, underbites, overbites or crowded or gapped teeth, there is a treatment that can be used to give you a wonderful smile, and nobody should realise that you are having treatment! Choosing braces Liverpool will depend on your specific needs, and a qualified dentist will be able to examine your mouth and take x-rays to determine the right course of action. If you are offered Invisalign as a treatment, it could be time to get very excited indeed. Invisalign offers convenience, comfort and reliability.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system that uses clear plastic aligners that can be worn over the teeth to push them into the correct position. This process normally takes between 6 to 18 months, which is great if you are a little impatient to see the results. If you are keen to know how your teeth will look after treatment, however, you won’t even have to wait that long. When you are being measured for your bespoke aligners, your dentist will use iTero technology to scan your mouth and get the required measurements. From this scan, a digital 3D animation can be generated to show what your teeth will look like by the end of your treatment before you’ve even started!
What are the benefits of choosing Invisalign?
If you don’t fancy having visible, fixed metal braces, then Invisalign is definitely for you. Sometimes, it may be uncomfortable to have wires and brackets in your mouth. If you feel this way when wearing your slimline aligners that are made to measure for comfort, then you can remove them for up to 2 hours a day; this also means that you won’t have to modify your diet. You won’t have to clean the aligners after eating either. You will also find that you can brush and floss as normal because you will be able to remove the aligners to do that too. This will prevent you from developing any further issues with your teeth.
Another benefit of the aligners is that when worn, they are virtually invisible, so nobody should realise that you are wearing them. This could increase your confidence about carrying on with your life as normal while wearing them and smiling freely! You also won’t have to see your dentist too frequently either. With Invisalign, you can change the aligners every week, and you will be given batches of 6 weeks’ worth at each checkup appointment, so you only need to see your dentist once every 6 months. You shouldn’t have any need to visit them for emergency appointments as the plastic material they are made from is very durable and difficult to break.
