When you have misaligned teeth, it can make everyday situations more difficult.
You may shy away from social engagements and cover your mouth with your hand when talking, making things like selfies or group photos out of your realm of comfort.
If you refused to wear braces when you were younger and are now regretting it, don’t worry! You can still get straighter teeth as an adult and due to advances in modern orthodontic care, you probably won’t need to wear a metal brace.
Known as invisible and clear braces, there is now an entire set of appliances which offer a discreet way for you to straighten your smile.
And at Harley Street Dental, we are proud to be able to offer our suitable patients invisible and clear braces. We can even offer the world-famous Invisalign in Harley Street, so your new smile will not only be obtained discreetly, but it will be comfortable and effective too. Fantastic!
But what are some of the advantages of wearing Invisalign in Harley Street as an adult? Read on to find out!
Better oral health
It is often a concern that wearing a brace will cause secondary issues with oral hygiene; after all, traditional metal braces can cause a myriad of bacteria to accumulate, hence the recommendation to attend hygienist appointments.
With Invisalign in Harley Street, you can remove the brace completely, which allows you to clean your teeth as you usually do, and prevents any plaque build-up which in turn, prevents decay. Great!
And of course, while removing a brace to clean your teeth has its advantages, you can also remove this aligner when you are eating or drinking; you can even take it out to give a talk at work.
Just ensure that you wear it for the required 22 hours each day which will help you to achieve the desired results in the period which our team has set.
Another advantage of invisible braces is that they are, well, invisible!
Made from a clear plastic which slots comfortably over your teeth, they will not draw unwanted stares from strangers and will help you to feel more confident while your smile is straightened.
Interestingly, this particular brand of invisible brace also has an app which you can use to alert our team as to the progress that is being made, which will help us to keep track while you remain at home.
Adding to the convenience, there are few appointments needed for our team to check on the progress of the braces and as the brace doesn’t require tightening, there is no discomfort after you attend our surgery. Great stuff!
Many patients worry that because this brace is removable, it offers minimal control over your teeth movement.
Thanks to computer software, this brace offers more precise movements and does so in a comfortable way. If you are worried that your current aligner isn’t moving your teeth as we predicted, contact our team for a follow-up assessment.
