New age for orthodontics with Invisalign braces from South East London dentist

02 / 08 / 2010

Having straighter teeth is often very high on people’s lists of things they would change about their appearance. Fortunately, with orthodontic braces it is possible to straighten teeth artificially to improve the way they look in the mouth and the effect they have on the profile. However, traditional straightening methods are often very unpopular because of the way the braces look and feel in the mouth. Traditional train-track braces have a reputation for being not very attractive, uncomfortable and needing a long time for successful treatment but there are now other options.

Invisalign is a new system of teeth straightening that uses clear plastic braces to straighten the teeth faster and with less discomfort. Also, because they are made of clear plastic, the aesthetic impact of the braces is significantly reduced. Invisalign treatments are on average six months shorter than with more traditional braces. They work by using a series of specially designed retainers that fit over the teeth, making small adjustments. Gradually, the teeth are moved into a straighter position.

There have been clear braces in the past but they have often been fairly ineffectual but for the first time Invisalign braces offer genuine results without the need for wires and brackets ruining the appearance of the teeth. Ask your South East London dentist for more information about Invisalign braces at your next appointment. They will be able to give you a clearer idea about suitability and cost of treatment. There are also other treatments available such as the Inman aligner and Clearstep that straighten the teeth fast and with minimal aesthetic impact. A new age for orthodontic treatment has finally arrived.
