The Invisalign process is a form of cosmetic dental alignment which has grown vastly in popularity over recent years as a discreet alternative to conventional methods of orthodontics. Invisalign offers a replacement to fused metal ‘train-track’ braces, which are generally uncomfortable, and have an obvious effect on the outward appearance of those who wear them. Invisalign, however, is a discreet method of orthodontics which affords its users the ability to undertake essential dental realignment without attracting any unwanted attention. This may explain the reasons behind Invisalign’s success with those from the teenage and younger adult demographic. Another reason behind Invisalign’s success is that it is a removable form of orthodontics which, unlike conventional braces, means that treatment can be carried out at a time which is convenient to the patient, such as when at home or asleep.
Invisalign treatment is the brainchild of Stanford University graduate Zia Chishti, who revolutionised conventional orthodontics by replacing fused brackets and headgear with a plastic aligner. The Invisalign aligner is constructed from a specialist, patented plastic called SmartTrack, which is utilised for its uniquely durable, yet malleable nature. When worn over teeth, built in pressure points within the aligner gradually push them into their correct specification. A course of Invisalign treatment typically will be less than twelve months, but varies depending on the extent of treatment necessary. The initial process begins with the patient having a 3D scan with the latest iTero Scanner to create a digital model of the inside of their mouth and teeth, to allow for the aligners to be constructed. Thereafter, once the mould has replicated the contours of the patient’s mouth perfectly, the aligners are created and the patient can take it home. Each installation of Invisalign in Hertfordshire is an entirely unique process as the mould is created specifically for its user, and cannot be worn by another.
Invisalign in Hertfordshire is proven to have had a significantly positive impact on the self-esteem and confidence of those who seek it. Patients who suffer from superficial, yet somewhat uncomfortable dental issues, such as misaligned or overlapping teeth, can often find it impacts in an increased anxiety about socialising or embarrassment. As a result of this, a growing number of patients are seeking discreet, cosmetic dental solutions such as Invisalign which affords them the ability to address structural issues, without attracting scrutiny or unwanted attention from peers or colleagues. This, in turn, often results in a renewed and revitalised sense of self-worth and esteem. Invisalign, and other discreet orthodontics like it, allow patients to tackle life head on, with a confident smile on their faces.
