It is not difficult to understand why millions of people have chosen to straighten their teeth with the affordable, convenient and discrete teeth straightening device; Invisalign, as it manages to tick all the boxes for both adults and teenagers alike who have issues with the alignment of their teeth and jaw.
By addressing any burning concerns that you have, Invisalign in Harley Street is a treatment that is streamlined in its approach, knowing that many people would rather opt out of straightening their teeth with traditional devices.
If you are concerned about your professional image whilst wearing fixed braces and are looking for a more practical way to straighten your teeth, then we warmly invite you to speak with us about using Invisalign in Harley Street to correct your mild to moderate misalignments.
How does this treatment work?
Invisalign in Harley Street differs from traditional fixed braces in many ways, although the results remain the same. You can achieve straighter, healthier teeth in a matter of months whilst still being able to enjoy the convenience of maintaining your lifestyle.
This treatment involves the use of removable aligners, replaced by yourself every few weeks rather than needing to visit a dentist to have the wires tightened as it is with traditional braces. This reduces the amount of time that you need to take off work or school and keeps the control in your hands.
You must be committed to this treatment however, as you are in control, you need to ensure that you wear the aligners for the prescribed amount of time each day. Any deviation from this and you may find that expected results will be difficult to achieve.
How does the treatment differ from a traditional method?
Traditional fixed braces use brackets and wires to pull teeth into their correct alignment. They are still in frequent use today for more severe cases of misalignments as our dentists need to have the ability to manipulate the wires and teeth in the right way to achieve desired results.
Removable aligners work well for those individuals who have common and mild or moderate misalignments where all of the additional features that come with traditional braces are not really needed. Rather than pulling teeth into their correct position over a period of time, aligners push teeth where they need to go gently and gradually.
Although not exactly painful, the first few days of wearing a new set of aligners may be a little uncomfortable whilst your teeth are getting accustomed to their new position. This is short lived however and once this discomfort settles, the ligaments holding your teeth in their position will begin to relax.
We do suggest that you wear a retainer after the treatment has been completed in order to ensure that your teeth remain in this position. If you do not do this, it is likely your teeth will begin to move back into their original position and you will lose your investment in time that you have put in.
But don’t worry, we will discuss all of this with you during your initial consultation.
