Why you should choose Invisalign
It’s a known fact that around 40% of the British public are currently unhappy with their teeth. Our teeth mean a lot to us as they’re visible during almost all of our speech and expressions. If you’re currently unhappy with crooked, misaligned or just generally unappealing teeth, then you have probably considered getting braces before. Many adults, however, shy away from the traditional brace due to the fear of the dreaded ‘train track’ look and instead think they must choose the metal braces or nothing. This indeed is a myth and we’d like to introduce you to a new solution called the Invisalign here in Bolton.
What are Invisalign aligners?
Invisalign braces are a revolutionary type of clear dental brace, providing you with an effective solution for straightening your teeth without anybody having to know. Invisalign have encompassed both comfort and great results into one with their Invisalign braces and in fact, shun a lot of the traditional braces negative characteristics to create a far superior patient journey. The Invisalign aligners come in two separate trays, one for your top row of teeth, one for the lower that fits over your teeth. They’re custom made to your mouth and are therefore far more personalised as a tooth straightening system.
Invisalign are essentially clear braces
Invisalign take traditional braces and turn all the negative stereotypes into positive. For example, a lot of adults opt for Invisalign because the aligner trays are clear. This means they’re incredibly discreet, allowing your natural teeth to show through the plastic so that they don’t block your smile. You’ll be pleased to know that there are no metal wires or brackets, but instead a smooth clear plastic that doesn’t infringe on your natural expression and confidence.
iTero Simulated Treatment
The iTero Dental Scanner is used to scan your teeth and gums digitally, using 3D technology to create a 3D simulation of how your teeth could look at the end of the treatment. Not only will you be able to view a simulation of how your teeth will look before you begin, but the 3D scan is much more comfortable for our patients and the most time effective solution, whilst also meaning that more accurate impressions can be created. After the scan, we will have a 3D model of your mouth, helping us to produce your very own aligners and retainers.
Invisalign are removable
Yes, you read that right, Invisalign are indeed removable and they are not fused to your teeth with dental adhesives, brackets, and wires, but instead fit over your teeth rather like a gum shield albeit a clear, more comfortable, and more natural looking gum shield. They can also be taken out for important events such as mealtime, teeth cleaning and the ever so important selfie.
With that being said, it’s clear that the Invisalign are here to offer you a new modern alternative to the traditional brace and have soared to popularity here in Bolton and beyond.
