Straightening your teeth with Invisalign not only makes your smile beautiful but also improves your appearance instantly and provides other health benefits such as reducing the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
When your teeth are crooked, they affect your general oral health. You not only correct crooked, gapped or crowded teeth with Invisalignin London but also correct abnormal bite functions resulting from problems with the jaw.
If bite problems are not corrected, they can result in severe oral health problems like tooth loss, gum infections, cavities, difficulty in speaking or eating, and erosion of the tooth enamel.
When the teeth are positioned properly, the gums will fit firmly around the teeth, and this provides a strong defence against gum infections but, widely spaced or crowded teeth can result in gum disease also known as periodontitis.
Having straighter teeth which Invisalign offers you mean that you have a healthier mouth, better appearance and teeth that will last for a long time. When you correct your orthodontic problem, you can prevent issues like bad breath (halitosis), gingivitis (gum inflammation), chipping of the teeth, and tooth sensitivity. You also prevent serious issues like tooth loss when you reposition your teeth with Invisalign.
Invisalign is designed for comfort and convenience.
Invisalign has become the most popular removable dental braces for several reasons. One of them is the cutting-edge design it possesses. Invisalign does not use the regular bracket and wire system common to other traditional metal braces to straighten the teeth. Invisalign is made from medical-grade polyurethane resin that is virtually invisible to gradually move the teeth to their right position.
Invisalign aligner trays are designed to be removed, so brushing and flossing the teeth does not require any special procedure. You can properly take care of your teeth during treatment, unlike traditional braces that trap particles of food between the wires and brackets, making it difficult to clean the teeth which may lead to tooth decay.
Since you can take Invisalign out during treatment, there are no eating and sports restrictions, unlike treatment with traditional braces where you have to be careful with what you eat and the kind of sports you participate in to avoid damage.
Invisalign has smooth edges which make them more comfortable and provides a better chance of controlling the teeth straightening process because the teeth movement is timed and regulated but, with traditional braces, treatment is a bit uncomfortable and, the edges of the braces are rough.
Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit each person’s teeth comfortably, and each aligner moves the teeth slightly, vertically, and horizontally. The aligners may also rotate the teeth.Invisalign treatment does not require the regular 4 – 6-week dentist appointment common to traditional braces. It is also easier to check your progress with Invisalign, which usually involves a treatment time of 12 months and wearing the aligners for 22 hours daily.
Invisalign Digital scanning
Before treatment with Invisalign starts, your dentist performs a 3D digital scan which is a painless and non-invasive procedure unlike taking the teeth impression in traditional braces treatment which is very uncomfortable especially for those who have a strong gag reflex.
The 3D digital scan is less intrusive than the regular x-ray and, provides an open environment to curtail the feeling of claustrophobia common to carrying out CAD (computer-aided design) dental technology.
Invisalign is made to boost self-confidence in teens
Teeth problems like crooked or protruding teeth make a lot of teens feel like they are unattractive and make them lose their self-confidence. Most teens who have reduced self-confidence during adolescence are more vulnerable to negative influences by their peers and more likely to feel depressed. Using Invisalign can help them straighten their teeth discreetly and improve their self-confidence.
Most people who start orthodontic treatment each year are teenagers between the ages of 13 – 17 as most teenagers are not satisfied with their smile and appearance in general. A lot of these teens are self-conscious as a result of this.
Most teens who use Invisalign for treatment report an increase in their self-esteem compared to those who correct their misalignment with metal braces. A lot of teenagers who want to straighten their teeth opt for Invisalign because they have a better chance of avoiding bullying because of their appearance.
