Getting your teeth straightened out so that they form a perfectly aligned smile ought not to provide you with the additional head ache of wondering what your mouth looks like during the treatment. But unfortunately, many people have found this to be the case when they have worn a traditional metal brace. The fact is that they look rather unsightly and often need to be worn for several years. Many millions of teenagers, among others, have found this to be an issue.
Thankfully there is another way. It’s called Invisalign and it represents a method straightening out smiles that is far more discreet than the traditional metal brace. Instead of using a complex of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign is just one simple plastic device. It is worn over your teeth, a bit like a non-flexible mouth guard. Having carefully examined your mouth and determined where your teeth need to be moved in order to achieve the optimum arrangement, the Invisalign brace is made accordingly.
Once it has worked as much as it can, the Invisalign brace is simply replaced by another one that moves the teeth a little further towards the desired positions. This process is repeated until the results have been achieved. As long as the Invisalign is worn for twenty two hours each day, that will be long enough for it to do its work. It is completely removable, something that makes meal times rather easier.
The biggest benefit of choosing Invisalign is that it is made from a clear plastic material that is extremely discreet. Talk to your Saddleworth dentist about choosing Invisalign and getting your teeth straightened the discreet way that won’t damage your self confidence at all.
