When you have misaligned teeth, it can affect your self-esteem. You may want to do something about it and not know where to start, or you may have heard about Invisalign Hertfordshire. At Elegance Dental, we are members of the MiSmile Network – the sole GDP Network endorsed by Invisalign Align technology. Invisalign is a discreet method of realigning your teeth and we have a highly experienced team who can help you get the most out of your Invisalign Hertfordshire journey.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a convenient and comfortable way to realign your teeth with removable clear plastic aligners. When the aligners are being worn, they gently push your teeth and gradually, over time, your teeth will move into the positioning that is being aimed for by your dentist. After the teeth have reached their desired destination, we will then provide you with retainers to keep the teeth in place.
What are the advantages of choosing Invisalign?
If you’ve heard of Invisalign, it’s probably because somebody has been raving about it! There are so many reasons to be excited about this treatment. Invisalign treats mild to moderate alignment issues and the treatment can be completed in as little as 6 months. What’s more, while you are undergoing treatment other people will probably not realise that you are wearing anything in your mouth at all, they are unnoticeable, as your teeth merely show through the clear plastic of the aligners, it’s a brave new world and a huge step from fixed metal braces! In fact, you can remove the aligners for up to 2 hours a day. This means that you can eat without having your aligners in, so you won’t have to clean them after eating as you would need to with other appliances. You also shouldn’t experience any difficulty with the aligners breaking as they are made with plastic rather than the more delicate wires and brackets of fixed metal braces, so you can eat whatever you want to! The benefit of being able to remove the aligners is also that you will be able to brush and floss as normal, meaning that your oral hygiene shouldn’t suffer. Another advantage of being able to remove the aligners is that you will be able to take them out when you are doing something active or have a special occasion – the choice is yours!
Why Invisalign should be comfortable
At Elegance Dental, we use iTero technology to scan your mouth to get the exact measurements required to have your aligners bespoke to fit your mouth. While the aligners may take a little time to get used to wearing, they are just like a streamlined gum shield and you should get used to them easily.
