It’s amazing how important it is to have great looking teeth. The smile is something we all notice about people and as dentistry has developed over the last couple of decades, lovely smiles have become accessible to everyone in the UK. No longer the province of the privileged few, a great smile is available at almost every dentist, and so it is becoming harder and harder to live without great teeth for most people. However, many people also don’t want to have their smiles marred by braces while they are getting their teeth straightened, and, they don’t have to either, if they choose to use Invisalign in Kings Hill for their straightening treatment.
Invisalign in Kings Hill is an innovative way of getting straighter teeth that means patients don’t have to have brackets cemented onto their teeth. Instead, they have a series of clear plastic aligners that they wear, one after the other, until their teeth are straight. Invisalign is available from various dentists, including One Smile Oral Care.
What’s so great about Invisalign?
Invisalign can be used on mild to moderate alignment issues. It straightens teeth by gently pressuring them to move, whereas traditional braces using a pulling pressure.
Patients receive a series of 3D-printed aligners, each with slightly different pressure points built into it. The patient starts with the first set of aligners (they are available for both the upper and lower jaws). When the aligners go on, they often feel as if they don’t quite fit. This is the pressure points. Over the course of the next 7-10 days the feeling of not fitting will wear off. When the aligners feel as if they fit, it’s time to move onto the next set of aligners.
The great thing about using Invisalign in Kings Hill is that the aligners come out for meals and for cleaning. This means the patient does not have to alter their diet during treatment. It also means that cleaning is easier and there is much less chance of the teeth succumbing to decay, which can happen when food or plaque gets trapped under traditional aligners.
