Invisalign Clear Braces
As an alternative to traditional metal and fixed braces, Invisalign invisible braces can be an easy, effective way for patients to improve the smile, for example to improve uneven spacing, bite, and crowding issues. Many celebrities have been seen having used Invisalign, including Chris Evans, Cheryl Cole, Justin Bieber, Oprah Winfrey and (more locally) Mike Tindall, to name just a few.
Ideal for adults, but also for teenagers, especially those who don’t want the inconvenience or conspicuous appearance of metal braces, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic trays to gradually guide the teeth into their proper position in roughly the same amount of time as traditional metal braces.
Unlike traditional metal braces, the Invisalign aligning trays can be easily removed for meals and brushing.
The Invisalign Process
The Invisalign process begins with a consultation in which our specialist orthodontist will decide whether invisible braces are an appropriate option for you, as well as discussing all other available tooth straightening options to you.
We will then create a treatment plan designed to meet your specific oral health needs and make a digital 3D image of your current bite using Cerec Ortho a digital scanning technique. This allows us to plan the movement of your teeth throughout each stage of treatment and give you an idea of the results you can expect. The number of trays that will then be custom-crafted may vary from 20 to 30 per arch, depending on the extent of your treatment.
When they are worn daily for the duration of your treatment, Invisalign invisible braces can correct your bite problem and give you a smile you’ll love to show off.
Invisalign vs Traditional Metal Braces
Invisalign has become a popular and predictable system for straightening teeth. One of its strengths is that it utilises CAD/CAM (computer aided design and manufacture) technology, so we can show exactly how your teeth need to move in order to straighten. It also clearly displays a simulation of how your teeth with look once the treatment is complete.
Another advantage is that the computer also works out precisely how much tooth reshaping is required and when. This is measured to 0.1mm, so more precise than the dentist judging by eye.
Fixed braces now have many innovations to make them less obvious, such as ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured wire. However, for real invisibility, Invisalign can be a more discrete option.
Invisalign is very popular with people who need to speak as part of their job. Our specialist orthodontist has treated many busy people-facing professionals such as teachers, nurses, doctors and business professionals who chose Invisalign for precisely that reason.
So, how do you decide between traditional fixed braces and Invisalign? We can help you by considering your individual circumstances and our specialist orthodontist’s expertise.
Incognito lingual braces another alternative to traditional braces as the brackets that are needed to control the tooth movement are hidden on the tongue side rather than being visible on the lip side as with conventional fixed braces.
