When it’s to time to face the fact that you need to straighten out your teeth, you may not have to embrace the brace. Thanks to advances in technology, there are alternatives to traditional braces. Nowadays, more and more people are choosing to have Invisalign in Richmond.

Invisalign in Richmond

Invisalign are clear aligners that are 3D printed to fit the unique teeth of the patient. These aligners are worn every day for around 20-22 hours for 2-24 months. The treatment time will vary depending on the severity of the alignment issues that are being corrected.

If you’re thinking about choosing Invisalign in Richmond, we at Sheen Dental are happy to hear from you and tell you more about the treatment. After relaxing in our lounge with some magazines and hot or cold beverages, your dentist will examine your teeth and see if you are a suitable patient for Invisalign.

A clear and comfortable treatment

One of the advantages of Invisalign over traditional metal braces, is they are removable. This allow you to get on with your day-to-day activities as normal, removing the aligners temporarily to eat your favourite foods. You can remove them to brush the teeth, without using all those little tools that are required to maintain good oral health when wearing braces.

The process of going teeth straightening with Invisalign in Richmond is efficient and comfortable. Where braces can sometimes cause complications, with sharp bits poking into the gums, aligners offer a gentler way to straighten the teeth.

Straight teeth avoid potential future risks of tooth decay and gum disease. You can improve the health and appearance of your teeth, without having to sacrifice a significant amount of time to feeling self-conscious in braces. This is a good solution for some adults who may feel embarrassed about wearing braces, particularly if their job involves working with lots of people.

The transformation takes place usually under a year, where braces can take up to three years. During treatment, you only have to pop down to the dentist every 6-8 weeks, so we can check the aligners are doing their job properly.
