Having misaligned teeth can be a source of frustration and low self-esteem for some people. If you have mild to moderate alignment issues such as gapped teeth, crowded teeth, a crossbite, over or underbite, you don’t need to feel concerned, however, you do need to feel proactive! With a range of discreet methods of realigning your teeth, there’s never been a better time to treat yourself to a new smile. With Invisalign Weybridge featuring as a popular treatment internationally, you can have a convenient and discreet treatment that should get the job done in as little as 6 to 18 months.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a method of realigning your teeth that uses clear aligners. These will need to be changed on a regular basis as each aligner applies a certain amount of pressure on the teeth to push them into the desired position. You will be provided with 6 weeks’ worth of aligners by your dentist and then you will need to see them for a check-up and to receive another batch of aligners to last you until your next appointment. The aligners are manufactured in the Invisalign laboratories and are made to measure your mouth bespoke. Your dentist will digitally scan your mouth to get the measurements and can also show you an animation of what your teeth will look like after your treatment has been completed, before you’ve even got started with it.
Why do people use Invisalign?
For many patients, choosing Invisalign is a way to get their teeth aligned and looking beautiful. However, these are not the only reasons to do this. By aligning your smile, your teeth should be in the optimum position for cleaning thoroughly. What’s more, if you have struggled with any jaw pain, speech difficulties or chewing issues as a result of having misaligned teeth, these things could also be solved by having your teeth realigned.
Patients also enjoy having Invisalign, because you can remove the aligners for up to 2 hours a day. This means that you won’t need to worry about altering your diet at all as your aligners also won’t be in your mouth when you eat. You will also be able to clean and floss your teeth properly, without having anything getting in your way. If you want to take your aligners out to play sports, go on a date, or to do the conga, then the choice is also yours – it’s marvellous!
Finding an Invisalign dentist
If you would like to find a dentist who offers Invisalign in your area, a quick search engine should help, as dental practices tend to detail their treatments on their websites. You could narrow the potential options by finding out whether or not any of them offer free consultations. You will need to have a consultation to discuss your concerns about your smile, allow your dentist to examine your mouth and teeth, and to advise you about the potential treatment options so that you can agree on a treatment plan. If you decide to proceed with Invisalign, you should be able to show off your new smile in just a few months or so.
