Braces Made Better with Invisalign

Invisible Braces Installation

Invisible Braces InstallationCrooked, crowded or spaced out teeth are not a life sentence. Dentistry has long had effective ways to straighten out teeth. However, there are not many adults today who are willing to endure the train track look at work or social events. Thankfully, they don’t need to. For adults in Orpington, braces are available that are more discreet and comfortable than before.

One of the most discreet braces in Orpington is Invisalign, available at Orpington Dental Care and other dental clinics with dentists trained in Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign stands out from the crowd when it comes to discreet braces in Orpington as they are made of plastic, not metal. A series of clear plastic moulds, called aligners, are custom-made for each patient. Each aligner is worn for 7-10 days during which time they gently nudge the teeth into place.

The clear, transparent design of Invisalign braces in Orpington make them the ideal choice for adults with mild to moderate misalignments who don’t want to draw attention to their teeth straightening treatment.

What other benefits come with Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are removable so patients don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in their braces as they can take them out at mealtimes. Aligners can also be removed to brush and floss the teeth, making dental hygiene no more difficult than before treatment began. Despite the aligners having to be worn for at least 20-22 hours a day, these braces in Orpington have minimal impact on patients’ lifestyles.

Why invest in braces?

Treatment with braces, whether Invisalign or otherwise, creates straighter teeth. These are easier to keep clean and wear more evenly, which means reduced chances of the teeth getting damaged or diseased and needing to be replaced. This means less time spent in the dental chair and lower dental expenses. Then there is the cosmetic side of things. A straighter set of teeth usually makes for a more confident smile, with all the knock-on effects that can have on personal and professional interactions.

Patients considering braces in Orpington should consult a dentist to find out if Invisalign, or another form of braces, is most suitable for their needs.
