Part II: Straighter teeth with Invisalign

Each day I have patients who come to me wanting to have “nicer looking” teeth. There are many ways dentists can help you achieve this goal. Smile solutions often involve cleaning, whitening, Invisalign/orthodontics, veneers/crowns.

Today we will focus on Invisalign. Most of us would have known or seen somebody who has worn braces to straighten their teeth. Perhaps that person was you. Nowadays, braces are a becoming a thing of the past. Since 2002 Invisalign has treated nearly one million patients. Invisalign is the invisible new way to straighten teeth without braces. It uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires. It combines 21st century technology and revolutionary manufacturing to customise treatment for each patient.

In most cases, Invisalign has proven to be as effective as straightening teeth as traditional braces.

Main benefits of Invisalign include:

Invisalign is nearly invisible – you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
Invisalign is removable – you can eat and drink what you want in treatment; you can also brush and floss normally
Invisalign is comfortable – there are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation: no metal or wires also means you spend less time in the dentist’s chair getting adjustments.
It is always best to schedule an appointment with your dental professional for a consultation for a proper diagnosis.
