Teeth straightening with Invisalign
There are many options for promoting good dental health. If your teeth are strong and healthy, but you are unhappy with the appearance of them, then you may wish to find out about teeth straightening. By straightening your teeth, they will be healthier and you will also improve the appearance of your smile. An excellent choice for teeth straightening we believe is Invisalign.
Invisalign Hertfordshire is a great way of straightening your teeth, improving the appearance of your smile and promoting cleaner teeth and healthier gums all at the same time without anyone noticing that you are having treatment.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign Hertfordshire is a modern form of dental brace. Invisalign Hertfordshire replaces brackets and archwires for clear plastic aligners that are just as potent for teeth straightening, but better designed for mild or moderate misalignment issues of the teeth. The aligners fit over your teeth like a glove. They are designed using the latest in digital dental technology and 3-D printed for accuracy and precision. The biggest advantage is that they are invisible when they are in your mouth and you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing that you are undergoing any form of dental treatment at all.
Invisalign aligners work in a sequence. You will be provided with the whole set of aligners and the process can be carried out in the comfort of your own home. Each of the aligners needs to be kept in the mouth for approximately 22 hours of the day and worn for around two weeks and then you move on to the next aligner in the series. During this time the aligner puts enough pressure on your teeth to shift them by about 0.25 to 0.3 mm towards the desired final position. If you do not wear the aligners properly then your teeth will not move enough and the next aligner will not be able to work properly either. By adhering to the protocol you can achieve excellent results.
On average Invisalign Hertfordshire takes between 6 and 12 months to straighten your teeth. If it is something you are thinking about then make a move sooner rather than later.
