Complete discretion with Invisalign braces from south East London dentist

10 / 01 / 2010

There is no doubt that fixed metal braces can be effective but for many patients, and in particular older patients, the idea of having to wear messy and uncomfortable metal braces for two years is unsurprisingly not that appealing. Many older patients who missed out on orthodontic straightening when they were younger have often felt ignored by the world of cosmetic dentistry in terms of viable straightening treatments. That was until the advent of Invisalign clear braces.

The Invisalign system was first introduced in the US at the beginning of the new millennium and has slowly become more and more available in this country. Media exposure and positive testimonials on makeover shows have heightened the profile of the Invisalign system making it one of the most popular new ways to straighten teeth. But what is it exactly that makes the Invisalign system so special? Well, most obviously, is the fact that it is nearly invisible to others unless standing extremely close to the patient, and even then you would probably have to know that they were there to even notice.

The system works by using a series of computer designed retainer-type braces, each making a small adjustment to the position of the teeth and treatment takes on average four to six months less that most fixed metal braces. It’s easy to see why Invisalign braces are becoming so popular with patients all over the UK. For patients unwilling to resort to metal braces, the Invisalign system seems to offer the perfect solution. The braces are discreet, treatment is shorter and they are also completely removable. Effective treatment requires the braces to be in the mouth on average 22 hours a day. That leaves two hours free to eat and clean teeth limiting the effect braces have on your lifestyle. You can receive more information about the incredible Invisalign system at South East London dentists.
