Get Invisalign in Sevenoaks
Whether you are a working professional, an active sports enthusiast or have a teenager who understandably refuses to wear braces, you will be pleased to know that there is an invisible orthodontic appliance that can fit all of these lifestyles and will allow anyone of any age to straighten their teeth in a discreet and speedy way. With Invisalign in Sevenoaks, we at Stangrove Court Dental can straighten your teeth in a less painful manner than is often experienced with traditional braces and we can do it quicker too.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign in Sevenoaks is an orthodontic system that uses clear aligners to straighten the teeth. These aligners are custom made to clip over your teeth and, once in place, are completely unnoticeable. After you’ve successfully had a consultation with us to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for this treatment, we will be able to scan your mouth in order to create a set of aligners for your full course of treatment. But what does this mean for you?
This means that you are in control of your treatment and that you change the aligners at the appropriate times at home without having to constantly come into the practice for adjustments so you can live your life without the inconvenience of having to schedule numerous dental appointments.
The aligners are also removable, meaning you won’t need to avoid the types of food or drink that you would normally need to, with a more traditional set of braces, it also means that your teeth are easier to clean and that you can enjoy any sporting activities without worry.
Why does Invisalign work quicker?
To understand why Invisalign in Sevenoaks works quicker than many other orthodontic treatments you need to understand how the others work.
Traditional braces are metal brackets which are fixed to the front of the teeth and connected by a single wire, the brackets are used to apply tension to the wire, which pulls your teeth into position over the course of 2-3 years. This pulling on the teeth is often uncomfortable and the brackets themselves can cause cuts to the inside of the cheeks and lips.
With Invisalign, this pulling motion is eliminated with the use of a clear aligner which instead pushes the teeth gently into place over just a few months. Traditional braces normally need a trained eye and lots of experience to work, whereas Invisalign uses a highly skilled computer program that scans the mouth in order to figure out a treatment plan. All this means more dentists can treat their patient’s orthodontic problems without having to send them off to a specialist.
This revolutionary treatment is seeing clients going from crooked smiles to straight confident smiles in a matter of just a few months and, with a retainer plan for after treatment, you can be sure that your teeth stay in the position they have been set in for the rest of your life.
