Want a realigned smile? It’s time for Invisalign!

You’ve avoided the elephant in the room for long enough. You’ve avoided photo opportunities, looking in the mirror, and smiling, but really how can you go on like this? Whether you’re a teenager in school or an adult who’s heading to work every day, the fact is that having misaligned teeth can lower your self-esteem and create problems for your oral health as it makes it more difficult to clean your teeth and, in severe cases, causes speech problems, chewing difficulties, and jaw pain. But, it doesn’t need to be this way. By visiting a dentist Soho, you can get your teeth aligned discreetly and effectively in as little as 6 to 18 months, on average. Invisalign has a special range for teens, as well as a range for adults, and has been used to treat 13 million smiles globally over the past 25 years. It’s a treatment with a great track record that you can trust.

What is it?

Invisalign is a system that consists of plastic aligners that are worn over the teeth, and they push the teeth into the correct position. The aligners need to be changed every couple of weeks or so, and you will be given enough aligners for six weeks at a time before you go back to your dentist to get some more and have a check-up. The aligners are comfortable to wear because they are made bespoke for your mouth. Your dentist will use iTero technology to scan your mouth and get the measurements for your aligners. From this, they will also show you a video of what your smile will look like after treatment has been completed, so you will have a wonderful image in your mind of what your effort of wearing the aligners will achieve before you even get started - that’s a big tick for the motivation box! Once the aligners are made, you should be pleasantly surprised at how smooth the plastic feels, and once you are used to the initial pressure of your new aligners, you should be able to forget that you are wearing them. 

Any other benefits of Invisalign?

Another benefit of choosing Invisalign, aside from the fact that they are barely visible when they are worn because the plastic is see-through, is the fact that you can also remove them for a couple of hours each day. This means that you don’t need to wear them while you are eating, and you can take them out for your oral hygiene routine too. Moreover, you should have time to take them out for other things like hobbies or having a date - the choice is yours to make. You should also have little reason to visit your dentist for emergency appointments as your aligners are made of durable plastic, so they are difficult to break, leaving you with more time to do the things you love!
