Here’s Why You Should Try Clear Braces
Have you heard of Invisalign clear braces? If you haven’t, don’t worry – the team at our Farringdon dental practice can tell you all about them, and how they could work for your unique smile.
Perfect bite problems
Whether you have an underbite, overbite, or cross bite, Invisalign clear braces can help tackle the problem. Bite issues can cause pain in the jaw, difficulties chewing, and, in some cases, receding gums. These types of bite problems involve overlapping teeth, which can cause wear and tear, including chips. Invisalign clear braces are known for encouraging a better smile arch.
Some people are born with crooked teeth, or inherit them from their parents. Sometimes, crooked teeth can be the result of trauma or simply from bad habits in childhood. As well as headaches and pain to contend with, crooked teeth can lead to strain of the jaw and chewing problems. Clear braces can help reset your smile and relieve some of the pressure.
Improve gaps or crowding
Too much space between teeth can ‘trap’ food particles and bacteria; too little space, and it’s impossible to clean effectively. Clear braces, such as Invisalign, can help realign your teeth and improve the health of your smile at the same time.
Track your teeth
Our Invisalign clear braces feature 3D imaging technology so you can see your end results, and how your teeth move during treatment. There’s also an app available to help you track from the comfort of your own home.
Enjoy invisible treatment
Many people can feel self-conscious about treatment. Invisalign uses a series of clear braces, so others won’t spot you’re having treatment at all. Because Invisalign is suitable for teenagers as well as adults, it can be really beneficial for kids going through that self-conscious stage.
Remove when you feel like it
Another benefit to clear braces is the ability to remove them when you need to eat, brush your teeth, or even to celebrate rare occasions like weddings or prom nights. Being removable also makes them easier to keep clean, and keep your teeth clean too, as there are no wires or brackets to brush around (as is the case with fixed metal braces).
Enjoy all-day comfort
Some braces can feel tight and uncomfortable, but Invisalign clear braces are a much better alternative and, aside from pressure when you switch out aligners (usually every couple of weeks), you shouldn’t experience pain or discomfort.
