Straighten your teeth invisibly with Invisalign in SW14

Whether a teenager or adult, few people enjoy the idea of wearing metal braces to straighten their teeth. While metal braces have come a long way and are generally very effective, self-conscious teenagers and adults do not like the idea of metal brackets and wires protruding from their mouth. Luckily, modern dentistry doesn’t have to involve wearing metal braces for teeth straightening any more.

At Sheen Dental, you can take advantage of Invisalign in SW14, an innovative treatment that straightens your teeth and lets you achieve the smile of your dreams without anyone knowing that you are undergoing treatment. Just like the name implies, Invisalign combines the same beautiful results you’d expect from traditional braces with a discreet appearance.

What is Invisalign?Invisalign fixes misaligned teeth and irregular bites through the appropriate placement of controlled pressure on the teeth, similar to traditional braces. The difference, however, is that your dentist controls the timing of the force application on each and every movement throughout each stage of the treatment.

Invisalign consists of a series of custom-made, transparent, removable braces, which help shift your teeth gradually into their right position over a prescribed period of time. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series. Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating and cleaning your teeth, but you must wear them for at least 22 hours per day for effective treatment. Generally, the average Invisalign treatment lasts one year, however, treatment time differs slightly for each patient.

Benefits of Invisalign alignersThe most important benefit of Invisalign trays is that they are transparent, therefore nobody will notice that you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment. Moreover, Invisalign aligners are removable, therefore you can continue eating your favourite foods throughout the treatment. Simply remove the aligners before meals and eat your food, without worrying about breaking a bracket or popping off a wire.

Unlike traditional braces which are hard to clean properly, Invisalign allows you to maintain your regular brushing and flossing routine without any changes.
