Get straight teeth with Invisalign from your South East London dentist.

18 / 08 / 2012

For many years permanently affixed metal braces have been the most effective way to realign crooked teeth. While these are effective in many respects, it is often felt by patients that these can be unsightly and diminish their self-esteem, making them nervous to even smile. Being permanently fixed into place also meant that any alterations to the plan required a significant procedure of removal and adjustment.

A new alternative to braces has been developed and patented which deals with both of these issues. Invisalign are an invisible and removable retainer that is capable of reshaping your teeth to be straight, strong and beautiful. Your South East London dentist will take an impression, xray and photograph of your teeth from which Invisalign shape the perfect design specific for the individual shape of your teeth and gums. Using a clear plastic, a series of Invisaligns will be created. Each one in turn gradually aligns the teeth into the correct position, normally you will begin using a new set every two weeks. It is necessary to wear the Invisalign at least 22 hours a day, they should be removed for cleaning and eating.

Unlike metal bracers, because of the transparent material of Invisalign even when worn throughout the day people will not notice them. They are especially designed to fit the contours of your teeth and will be almost invisible. While they may provide some additional protection to your teeth this is not their primary purpose, and so it is as essential to maintain a good dental routine, with brushing and floss regularly.
