Fed up with a Crooked Smile? Ask Us about Invisalign

We know lots of adults didn’t have the chance for orthodontic treatment as children, or perhaps haven’t worn their retainer as directed over the years and have had an orthodontic relapse. Whatever the reason for your crooked teeth in Clacton, you don’t need to go through the rest of your life being afraid to smile. Using the latest technology, we can soon straighten your teeth, discreetly and comfortably using Invisalign.

invisalign-teethWhy Invisalign?

You might have already heard a bit about Invisalign as it is an extremely popular system that is widely used worldwide. The feature that makes Invisalign so attractive is its virtual invisibility which as you can imagine is extremely appealing for adults. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently straighten your teeth. Once they are in your mouth, these are extremely difficult to see and they remain in place at all times except when you eat or drink or want to brush or floss your teeth. It is possible to take your aligners out for the occasional special event, although it’s highly likely that most people will not even notice you are wearing them.

There’s No Need to Change Your Diet or Oral Hygiene Routines during Treatment

As they are removed for mealtimes, there is no need to avoid any of your favourite foods or anything that may be particularly hard or crunchy, or very sticky and which could damage conventional brace brackets and wires. It’s also super simple to look after your teeth during treatment as you can simply brush and floss as normal.

Who Can Use Invisalign?

Invisalign is suitable for most people interested in teeth straightening in Clacton. The aligners are able to correct most common orthodontic problems, including issues with teeth that are overlapping and overcrowded, as well as closing up unsightly spaces in between your teeth. Invisalign can also be used to correct problems with your bite, including overbites, crossbites, open bites and underbites. Invisalign tends to be more suitable for adults although some older teenagers may be able to benefit from this treatment. In fact Invisalign also produces a system aimed specifically at teenagers and which includes a number of special adaptations such as wear indicators, showing if the aligners have been worn for long enough, as well as several spare sets of aligners at no extra cost in case some get mislaid. One important thing to bear in mind about this treatment is that compliance is vital for its success and if you or your teenager is prone to forgetting things then this may not be the right system and fixed braces could be a better choice. These days fixed braces are much more discreet than you’d ever imagine possible, using clear ceramic brackets that are virtually invisible.
