Since its appearance, almost 20 years ago, Invisalign has gained in popularity among teenagers and professional adults who did not wish to continue straightening their teeth with metal braces. Invisalign is an innovative treatment that is nearly invisible, enabling patients to straighten their teeth discreetly.
The treatment consists of a series of clear, plastic aligners that are customised to fit snugly over the teeth and gums of each individual patient. Only trained dentists can provide Invisalign in Luton, such as those at Vogue Dental Care.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are created with the help of 3D technology, to enable dentists to predetermine the treatment plan. This way patients can have a glimpse on the final results, even before starting their treatment. The customised aligners are based on very accurate measurements and they are created by the Invisalign laboratory.
When they begin treatment, patients receive several sets of aligners and they have to wear each set for 7-10 days. After this time, patients need to start wearing the next set in the series and continue straightening their teeth. Changes in the position and the alignment of the teeth can be noticed in just a few months after treatment begins, with the whole treatment taking, on average, one year.
Who can have Invisalign in Luton?
Invisalign can be used to treat numerous dental problems associated with adults and teenagers. Whether they need minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. However, patients with severely crooked teeth would benefit from regular braces before moving to Invisalign.
Why consider Invisalign?
Invisalign has a number of benefits that other teeth straightening treatments cannot offer. Patients who opt for Invisalign can have a healthier and straighter smile without compromising their appearance.
Moreover, Invisalign aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear. The aligners are removable enabling patients to brush and floss their teeth as they normally would. This also means that Invisalign patients can continue eating their favorite foods without worry.
Invisalign aligners are created to fit within a busy lifestyle and those wearing the aligners can continue participating in their favourite activities without changing their routine. Finally, Invisalign does not require many adjustments, therefore fewer dental appointments are required throughout the entire treatment.
