Invisalign Hertfordshire is a modern method of straightening your teeth that helps improve the appearance of your smile and also improves your dental health at the same time. Crooked and wonky teeth not only affect the aesthetics of your smile, but they can also cause a range of health issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. By speaking to our dentist at Elegance Dental you can find out if Invisalign Hertfordshire is suitable for you. Invisalign Hertfordshire is different to other orthodontic treatments in that it uses a clear aligner system to straighten your teeth. This means you will be provided with a series of clear BPA-free thermoplastic aligners that are numbered; for example 1 to 10 or 1 to 50. This is dependent on how many aligners you need, each of which you wear for 22 hours a day, two weeks at a time until you have completed the whole set. In doing so you can address crooked teeth, overcrowded teeth, overlapping teeth, protruding teeth as well as bite disorders. In this way you can transform the appearance of your smile and improve your dental health for the future.
It is a simple and convenient treatment process which is why it is so popular here at Elegance Dental and across the world. So far since 1999, more than 14 million patients have straightened their teeth with Invisalign. It can be used with teenagers and adults of all ages with no upper age limit. We will make sure that it is the right choice of treatment for you.
Invisalign works by applying gentle pressure to your teeth. It is important that you wear your aligners correctly for best results. With regular check-ups we will make sure that the process is coming along successfully and it should take between 6 and 12 months to straighten your teeth.
How does Invisalign improve your dental health?
To begin with, Invisalign makes it easier for you to clean your teeth. Straight teeth are much easier to brush and floss in comparison to uneven teeth or overlapping teeth. This is because there is more space for the toothbrush bristles to get around your teeth and between your teeth. It is also easier to floss between your teeth to clean them properly. By being able to clean between your teeth more effectively, you will reduce the chance of cavities and tooth decay and you will also enjoy better gum health and reduce the chance of developing gum disease. By maintaining healthy teeth and gums, you can prevent life-threatening diseases. This includes cardiovascular disease and even certain types of cancer.
Crooked teeth put more pressure on your gums, jaw and supporting bone. Over the years this can result in headaches, earache, neck pain and jaw pain. By straightening your teeth and improving your jaw alignment you can relieve such symptoms or prevent them from developing. You can improve the function of your mouth, allowing you to bite and chew more easily and improve your overall health and wellbeing too. Speak to us at Elegance Dental today and find out more.
