Get Invisalign Braces in London from Qualified Invisalign® Providers

08 / 04 / 2015

Why do people prefer to work on DIY projects, instead of hiring experienced professionals to accomplish the job? For many, do-it-yourself projects, such as simple home remodels, garden landscaping, and creative crafts, become more meaningful and more affordable. In a world where many believe almost everything can be done using DIY methods, however, there are still areas where the skills and expertise of certified professionals are necessary.

A recent article on Huffpost Healthy Living discusses the dangers of DIY healthcare—specifically DIY orthodontics. There are some companies offering “patients” kits so they can take impressions of their teeth themselves and upload these photos from their smartphones. From there, these companies will tell the patient if clear aligners are necessary to correct misaligned teeth. Another company provides clients with elastic rubber bands that close the gap between teeth. While these methods may look effective, the “patients” are actually exposing themselves to potential dangers.

DIY Braces Result in Worse Teeth and Gum Condition

For those who need invisible braces in London and elsewhere, they must realize that DIY aligners and braces can cause more harm than good. Orthodontists and specialists study and undergo training for years, and continue to take seminars to keep themselves updated with the latest dental methods and technologies.

Moreover, a dentist creates personalised dental treatment plans based on the patient’s needs, so it’s imperative that a patient pay his or her dentist a visit. This way, the dentist can determine if a patient is qualified for clear braces. As the leading brand for invisible aligners, Invisalign® clear braces must be created using accurate impressions of the patient’s teeth taken by a qualified Invisalign® provider.

The REAL Benefits of Invisible Braces

Invisalign® offers patients various benefits that go beyond correcting misaligned teeth. The braces are nearly invisible, unlike metal braces that are visible even from a good distance. Often, only the patient knows he or she is wearing aligners. For many, especially teens, this is a big factor as visible braces can sometimes affect their self-confidence and the way they socialise. Removable aligners also make it easier to eat and brush one’s teeth.

The most important benefit of getting Invisalign® braces in London from a qualified provider, especially from a dental practice with a Platinum Elite Invisalign® doctor like London Bridge Dental Practice, is that your progress will be closely monitored by your dentist. Your aligners are supposedly changed every two weeks in order to achieve the results you want. If issues arise – although they are very rare – your dentist can be called upon easily to address the problem.

Can the same thing be said about mail-to-order clear braces?
