If you have gaps between your teeth or they are crooked, you have a few different options available for you to create a healthy smile. Your dentist at Harley Street Dental Clinic will help you find the right treatment, but Invisalign in Harley Street may be one to discuss.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are appliances custom-made to fit your teeth. They are designed out of smooth, clear plastic. Although they are made to fit your teeth, they are made to fit snugly. This will make sure pressure is put on certain teeth in a specific way. This pressure will cause your teeth to shift a little at a time until your teeth are in proper alignment.
What happens during the procedure?
During your first appointment, your dentist will give you a complete oral assessment. At this time, they will also take the x-rays, photos and an impression of your mouth. These will all be sent to the laboratory so your aligners can be created to your exact requirements.
Once your Invisalign in Harley Street have been created, you will come back in for a second appointment to try them on and for your dentist to make sure they fit correctly. While they may feel a bit odd at first, there should be only a minimal amount of irritation caused.
If all goes smoothly, you will leave our practice with your Invisalign aligners and be well on your way to a great smile.
Your dentist will let you know when you need to come back to have your aligners switched to the next set. Generally, you will need to come and see us every two weeks to get the next one in the series. It will be a slightly tighter fit to take your progression up to the next level.
Am I suitable?
Unfortunately, not everyone is a good candidate for Invisalign in Harley Street. If your dentist feels they aren’t right for you, they will suggest alternative choices, such as lingual or porcelain braces, which are also highly successful treatments to bring back your smile at Harley Street Dental Clinic.
