If you have been mulling over the idea of getting your teeth straightened, but are not keen on the idea of having brackets and wires fixed to your teeth, then Invisalign might be the treatment for you.
In Harley Street, Invisalign is available from Harley Street Dental Clinic. This system has several benefits that bracket and wire treatments don’t offer.
For starters, Invisalign really can claim to be almost invisible. Instead of brackets and wires, the Invisalign system consists of very thin, 0.3mm, transparent, thermoplastic resin trays called aligners. These aligners look like bite-guards. They snap on very snugly over the teeth, and disappear. Friends and colleagues will have to look very closely to spot you are wearing them. And you won’t be given away by the way you speak because Invisalign doesn’t interfere with speech in the way that traditional ‘train track’ metal braces can.
In Harley Street, Invisalign also have the benefit of being removable. When you can take out your teeth straighteners, you can carry on eating what you like without worrying about what might get stuck in the equipment, or held against your teeth to discolour or cause decay. Removable systems are also much easier to clean, just take out the Invisalign aligner, clean it, and put it back in.
Also, the benefit of being removable gives you the choice to leave your aligners out for a few hours if you have a particularly important occasion to attend. You must put them back as soon as you can however, as you need to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours a day if you are to stick to the straightening schedule. You can expect to wear between 12 and 48 aligners, depending on your case.
