There are many different factors that can affect the appearance of your teeth and make you unhappy with the look of your smile. If you have crooked or wonky teeth then it is more than likely that you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile. When asked, the majority of patients in the UK that are unhappy with their teeth mentioned that it was due to the alignment of them. A certain extent of misalignment is common amongst most adults unless they have undergone orthodontic treatment very recently. A great way to improve the appearance of your smile and the alignment of your teeth is to speak to your dentist about Invisalign London. Invisalign is an excellent form of clear brace. This means that you can straighten your teeth and no one will even notice that you are wearing braces.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign works using BPA-free, clear thermoplastic aligners that are designed to be invisible when worn in the mouth. They are designed using the latest in digital technology. You will undergo a three-dimensional scan of your mouth which will create a digital image of your teeth. The image will be altered to create a neatly aligned smile and the movements that are necessary to create the new alignment calculated to create a series of aligners to push your teeth into a neater formation. This process helps create Invisalign aligners that fit with accuracy and precision, are comfortable to wear and produce excellent aesthetic results. The number of aligners that are needed vary from patient to patient. To meet patient requirements there are different Invisalign treatment plans. For those with minor orthodontic issues the treatment can take as little as 3 to 6 months, whereas for those with more complex orthodontic tooth issues it can take between 12 and 18 months. By straightening your teeth with Invisalign you will improve the appearance of your smile, helping to boost your self-confidence and encouraging you to take better care of your teeth.
The treatment requires perseverance. The aligners need to be worn in your mouth for approximately two weeks at a time. Each aligner needs to be kept in your mouth for approximately 20 to 22 hours of the day. This means you only take them out at meal times after which you brush and floss your teeth thoroughly, rinse your mouth using a fluoride mouthwash and clean the aligners before placing them back in your mouth. With good perseverance you can straighten your teeth quickly and easily, with little or no impact on your daily life.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile this can affect your self-confidence and your self-esteem. It can affect your performance at work, your social life, the way you perceive yourself and the way others perceive you when they first meet you. A neatly aligned smile makes a great first impression and continues to have a positive impact on you and those around you.
