A London SE1 dentist gives us the low down on the Invisalign Teen Brace

13 / 10 / 2010

The Invisalign Brace system is also available for teenagers, and they are a very welcome replacement to the cumbersome and unsightly braces that are cemented onto the teeth, says an SE1 London dentist. Unlike the conventional brace they are removable for up to 4 hours a day, which is handy for the busy teenager who needs to remove them now and then so they don`t look too geeky! The real benefit of this advantage is so the patient can remove the brace for eating and cleaning their teeth. They are practically invisible anyway, as the pulleys and pressure gizmos are all cleverly hidden on the inside of what is in effect a gum shield, albeit a thinner version of one. The braces are all custom made before the 4-8 month course even starts, and they are changed every two weeks to keep up the pressure, and keep the teeth moving into a straighter position. They also make the blood system produce more bone cells which attach themselves to the back of the moving teeth; this makes a barrier to prevent the tooth sliding back into a misaligned position. The program also provides the patient and dentist with a 3D CGI film which takes them through the whole process from start to finish; they will be able to see their teeth in the new positions at the end of the program. No longer will teenagers have to endure the stigma attached to the old system, and we say good bye to it as we welcome this truly scientific method that was far too long in the making.
