Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment for straightening teeth. Our Peterborough Orthodontists apply a set of invisible dental braces, which are custom moulded to fit comfortably over your teeth. The custom mould then applies gentle pressure in order to reposition your teeth over time, the length of which depends on how demanding the case is. Treatment can last anywhere between three months to two years, but Invisalign treatment is comfortable thanks to the painless braces used, which can also easily be removed for eating and cleaning.
Invisalign braces are an appealing, alternative orthodontic treatment to other types of braces, as these clear braces are almost invisible and therefore barely noticeable. They are easy to live with as they do not impair your ability to eat or speak, in fact you will barely notice they are there and neither will anyone else, but your resulting straight teeth will speak for themselves. In addition to crooked teeth our expert orthodontists in Peterborough can use invisalign braces to fix disorders such as overbites, underbites and overcrowding of teeth.
While teeth straightening is frequently done earlier on in life during your teenage years, adults are increasingly looking for ways to straighten teeth. Since Invisalign braces are discreet and effective, they have become a popular method of teeth alignment among patients of all ages. With Invisalign dental treatment, patients can have that clean, straight smile that will improve their appearance, dental health and confidence.
Advantages of Invisalign Braces
The obvious advantage of wearing an Invisalign brace is that it goes unnoticed, making it a very good choice people who want to correct their smile without going through the inconveniene of wearing visible braces.
These are also more comfortable and flexible. Clinically, they cause less damage to the gums and supporting soft tissue of the oral cavity when compared to traditional braces.
Orthodontic treatments can create their own set of problems for patients. From causing the roots of the teeth to shorten to de-mineralization and at times even decay of tooth. Such problems usually occur because many types of fittings cannot be taken out before eating or for cleaning which is not the case with Invisalign braces.With Invisalign braces, patients keep changing their set of aligners every two weeks as a part of the treatment process.
Aligners keep reducing their force with every progressive week and so cause less discomfort compared to fixed appliances like metal braces.
With wires attached to the back of the teeth, Incognito braces offer a completely discrete teeth straightening experience.
