Have you been hiding your smile? Don’t let the thought of lengthy and complex orthodontic treatment put you off getting the beautiful straight smile you’ve always wanted – Invisalign is a fast, gentle, and almost invisible treatment option that has helped more than 7 million patients worldwide. Read on to find out more about Invisalign at Chiswick Park Dental & Facial.
Discreet orthodontic treatment
Unlike the fixed metal ‘train track’ style braces that you may associate with your teenage years, Invisalign aligners are both clear and removable. When you’re wearing them, they’re all but invisible to others, so you won’t feel self-conscious about your appearance during treatment. And should you need to remove them for a special occasion or workplace presentation you have that flexibility.
Advanced 3D technology
Thanks to incredible advances in orthodontic technology, you’ll be able to see the changes that your teeth will go through – including how your smile will look at the end of your treatment – before you even put in your first set of aligners. Your dentist here at Chiswick Park Dental & Facial will be able to create a 3D treatment plan using photos and impressions of your mouth so you know exactly what to expect throughout treatment.
No lifestyle restrictions
Whereas fixed braces can limit the types of food you are able to eat, Invisalign aligners enable you to have total freedom with your diet – crunchy, chewy, or sticky foods that could potentially get stuck in fixed braces are not off limits to Invisalign patients. Their removable quality means that brushing and flossing is also easier during treatment, minimising any oral hygiene risks.
Shorter treatment times
Depending on the severity of the issue, Invisalign treatment can be completed in as little as 6 months for mild to minor corrections. The average treatment time for most adult patients is 12 months, after which they can enjoy new-found confidence in their smiles.
Designed with comfort in mind
Invisalign aligners are made from SmartTrack material, which is specially engineered to fit snugly around your teeth and apply gentle, constant force to shift them into the desired position. There are no jagged edges that could damage the inside of your mouth or irritate the teeth and gums. Most patients report feeling very little discomfort while wearing the aligners; you may experience some soreness the first couple of days after putting in a new set, but once your mouth adjusts you will barely notice them.
