Invisalign at Harley Street Dental Clinic

When it comes to any form of dental treatment, you want to make sure you are receiving the very best care. When you pursue Invisalign in Harley Street, you can rest assured you are getting the finest treatment possible.

But before you begin your Invisalign treatment at Harley Street Dental Clinic, you should know more about what Invisalign is and how it works.

Invisalign in Harley StreetThe basics

Invisalign in Harley Street is designed to align your teeth, just like traditional braces. However, it does not use any metal components. Instead, it uses invisible, comfortable aligners that are made from smooth, medical-grade plastics. These aligners place strategic pressure on your teeth to move them into the correct place.

The aligners are made based on 3D mapping of your mouth. They are given in a series, with each new aligner moving your teeth closer to their ideal positions. If needed, the plan can be adjusted as treatment goes on, but most patients will remain on the original plan the system designed at the start of treatment.

The benefits

The first benefit that every patient notices is that they are near invisible. With Invisalign in Harley Street, you do not advertise the fact that you are in treatment each time you speak, laugh, or eat. But there are benefits that go far beyond aesthetics.

Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you do not need to change your life to fit your treatment. Rather than relearning how to brush and floss, you can remove the aligners to take care of these tasks. There is also no need to restrict your diet to accommodate your new clear braces. With Invisalign, life basically can go on as normal.

You also see your dentist less often. With traditional braces, your dentist will make frequent adjustments. With Invisalign in Harley Street, you make the adjustments by swapping aligners. We will only need to see you about every six to eight weeks.

Are there any drawbacks?

There are few drawbacks to Invisalign. One of its benefits, the fact that it is removable, can also be one of Invisalign’s drawbacks, as you need to be very careful with remembering to put the aligners back in.
