Secret teeth straightening with Invisalign from London SE1 dentist

01 / 06 / 2010

Invisalign tooth aligners are rapidly becoming one of the most popular orthodontic treatments available in the UK and the reason is fairly clear. Invisalign offer invisible tooth straightening using one-millimetre thick clear plastic retainers which are almost impossible to see when in the mouth. This neatly sidesteps one of the major bugbears of brace wearers, namely that the braces ruin the cosmetic appearance of their teeth for up to three years.

But this is not the only benefit of the Invisalign treatment. They are also not fixed braces which means they can be removed at any time, which comes in very handy for teeth cleaning and at meal times. The braces need to be worn for between twenty and twenty-two hours a day which gives a large window for eating, playing sport and even social occasions where the braces do not have to be in your mouth. Of course, the more you wear them the more effective they will be.

Each brace is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by another with a minor adjustment. By using twenty or so braces over the course of treatment the Invisalign braces gradually move teeth into position. Treatment lasts on average about eighteen months, which is about six months shorter than most fixed-metal braces, but of course there is no reason for anybody to know you are wearing a brace during that time.

Invisalign braces are available from London SE1 dentists and the cost varies depending on the nature of treatment required by each patient. If you have uneven or crooked teeth but have always been out of by the sight of metal braces then ask your dentist about the invisible Invisalign braces and straighten your teeth in secret.
