Clear braces could be the answer

Do you want straighter teeth but you’re worried it’s too late and that you’re now too old? Or you don’t want to have to wear a straightening appliance that’s easy for other people to notice? Invisalign clear braces are an excellent way for adults to have their crooked teeth straightened without having to wear a ‘train-track’ metal brace.


What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a set of removable clear aligners, made bespoke for each patient’s teeth. The aligners are changed each week, allowing the teeth to be moved little by little into the correct position. Invisalign has helped over three million people across the world to straighten their teeth. They’re popular with adults, as they’re almost invisible and they can be removed when eating, drinking or brushing their teeth. Sheen Dental say that many of their patients wear Invisalign in Richmond, as they are able to achieve a great smile with minimal disruption to their day-to-day life.

Wearing Invisalign

People can suffer from lack of confidence if their teeth are overcrowded or misaligned. Wearing Invisalign can correct the problem gradually, whilst also avoiding unwanted attention. Invisalign clear braces are not totally invisible but it’s highly unlikely that they will be noticed unless you point them out. Another advantage of the clear aligner is the ability to eat food without disruption as during meal and snack times it’s essential to remove the Invisalign. Richmond clinic Sheen Dental, says that Invisalign can help to ensure teeth avoid other problems, such as tooth decay. When teeth are overcrowded it can sometimes be hard to remove the plaque when brushing the teeth. The build-up of plaque can cause tooth decay, which could result in the need for restorative dental treatments or possibly even tooth loss.

Invisalign clear aligners are an excellent way to achieve straighter teeth, however, there is also a range of other orthodontic treatments available that may be more suitable. Alongside Invisalign, Richmond clinic Sheen Dentaloffer other discreet options, such as fixed white and clear braces and braces that are worn behind the teeth ensuring that they are totally invisible to other people.
