Getting your teeth back on the straight and narrow
We need our teeth to be straight, not only to allow us to feel confident when we talk and smile, but to efficiently chew and properly digest our food. However, people may feel reluctant to spend a long period of time with a mouthful of metal, especially if they are needing to undergo treatment as an adult. This is where opting for Invisalign in SW14, could be a clear solution to straightening up your smile.
When looking to find out more about Invisalign in SW14, we at Sheen Dental are happy to hear from you. Invisalign can be used to treat all sorts of problems such as:
deep bite which can lead to wear on the lower teeth;
open bite which can cause painful chewing;
under bite which often leads to soreness in the jaw;
gaps in the teeth which can lead to gum problems.
Invisalign prevents a range of toothy problems, with the added bonus of looking and feeling yourself throughout treatment, due to its near invisible nature.
The Invisalign journey
Your journey to straight teeth without fixed braces and wires, begins by making your way down to our dental practice in SW14. Invisalign is suitable for most patients, however braces may be a better option for some people with more complex cases. At your initial consultation, your dentist will examine your mouth and see if you are suitable, and also answer any questions or concerns you have.
If you get the thumbs up for treatment, a series of clear aligners are custom made for your teeth. These are to be worn every day for 20-22 hours and will move your teeth little by little. You can easily remove them for eating, brushing and flossing your teeth.
The time the aligners take varies from person to person. It usually takes from 6-24 months. In this time, we ask that we see you every 6-8 weeks to check how you’re getting on, and make sure everything is going smoothly.
The most prominent benefit is the clear aligners allow the patient to feel more confident that they might with chunky metal in the mouth. However, they are also removable which makes them a comfortable and practical solution.
