Having misaligned or crooked teeth can bring about a number of psychological distresses; such as a reduced self-esteem and confidence. Further to this, having misaligned teeth can also be a contributing factor to many dental occlusions; such as:
Fortunately, having the perfectly aligned, straight teeth that you long for is very achievable – and as a result of advancements in dental technology, it no longer has to be achieved through braces.
Invisalign is a form of dental orthodontics that corrects dental occlusions that are mild to moderate in nature.
Invisalign treatment is far more discreet in nature, working through the use of plastic trays that are worn on top of your teeth, and can be easily removed.
Traditional braces work by attaching small metal or ceramic plates to your teeth, with a wire that is adjusted over a period of time in order to straighten and position crowded or crooked teeth in regards to one’s bite, or to realign a misaligned jaw.
The length in which braces stay can vary between person to person; particularly between children and adults; however treatment is generally between one to three years.
Invisalign, as it’s name suggests (invisible), is made out of a clear, smooth and durable plastic that is moulded to your teeth and regularly adjusted in order to perform everything that traditional braces can do; such as straightening crowded or crooked teeth, and much more.
The biggest advantage to Invisalign treatment, as opposed to braces, is that no permanent devices are attached to your teeth; meaning that the Invisalign aligners can be removed so that you can enjoy eating, amongst other things. Being a clear aligner, it is almost invisible on your teeth when you wear them!
For many people, Invisalign has become a more popular option and alternative to braces, as no metal or ceramic braces or wires are needed to be installed.
It’s non-invasive, which means that the plastic trays can be easily removed when it’s needed, such as eating. Because it’s a ‘clear aligner’, it’s also quite difficult to notice on one’s teeth when worn.
For many people, taking orthodontic treatment for their misaligned or crooked teeth serves the purpose of assisting with their psychological distresses; such as reduced self-esteem and confidence. However, having braces can also be counter-productive, as the ‘look’ of wearing braces can cause more of this distress until the braces have been removed.
Forfuntately, Invisalign is an extremely affordable orthodontic treatment for many of our patients, and it all starts with an Invisalign consultation at Middleborough Dental Care.
