Do you need some straight talking about your smile?
If you’ve been worrying about having misaligned teeth, or you’ve been regretting missing the opportunity to address the issue when you were a teenager, then it’s time for some straight talk! There is no reason for you not to do something about it now in your adult years. What’s more, if you’re a teenager who doesn’t want to have visible braces, then you can stop worrying too! If you have mild to moderate alignment issues, then there is a discreet, convenient and efficient treatment that could give you the smile you yearn for in as little as 6 to 18 months on average. Invisalign in Sheffield is a treatment that is growing in popularity with patients as it is a removable aligner system that is practically invisible when the aligners are being worn.
How do aligners work?
Aligners are made bespoke to fit each patient’s mouth. Using a digital scan with iTero technology, a dentist will get the dimensions of your mouth to have your aligners manufactured to fit it exactly. When you receive your aligners, you wear them over your teeth like a gum shield, although it should be far more streamlined and sit comfortably along the gum line. The aligners then apply pressure to the teeth to move them slowly into the required position. You will have to change your aligners every couple of weeks, and you will be provided with enough aligners to last for 6 week periods. After this time, you will normally go and see your dentist for a check-up, where you will be provided with more aligners to last until the next appointment.
One of the great things about Invisalign is the fact that the aligners are removable. This means you have a couple of hours each day, where you can take them out to eat, clean your teeth and do whatever else you need to do! This enables you to have some choice about when you wear the aligners, so if you have a hot date or just fancy a tub of ice cream in front of a film, then you can do so, without your aligners getting in the way!
Why are the aligners invisible?
The aligners are virtually invisible, because they are made of a transparent plastic. So, when they are over your teeth, only your teeth should be noticeable to other people. There is a special range of Invisalign for teenagers as well, so anyone with all of their adult teeth could be eligible for treatment with Invisalign.
Why are the aligners invisible?
Typically, issues such as crossbite, gapped or crowded teeth, over or underbites can be addressed with Invisalign. The best way to find out if your alignment issues can be treated with Invisalign is to find an Invisalign dentist and speak to them about this treatment. They will examine you and present you with the treatment options. There are other discreet options available, so don’t worry if Invisalign isn’t the right one for you. The best thing you can do is bite the bullet and go for it!
