Are crooked teeth ruining your look? Are crowded teeth keeping you from smiling brightly? Don’t resign yourself to a lifetime of simply putting up with it. There is a solution for adults in Stanmore: Invisalign at Centre of Dental Excellence. This innovative treatment is a popular choice for our patients who want get straighter teeth without telling the whole world what they are up to. Sound like you? If so, here’s a rundown of what you need to know about Invisalign in Stanmore.
Invisalign takes advantage of modern 3D printing technology to produce clear plastic aligners that are custom-designed for your teeth. You’ll get a series of aligners to take home with you. Each one is worn for about two weeks and is designed to nudge your teeth one step further along their path to straighter positions. They do this due to tiny imperfections incorporated into the inner surfaces of the aligners.
One of the biggest selling points of these aligners, aside from their almost invisible appearance, is that they are removable. This means you can take them out to eat, brush and floss, getting rid of some of the biggest bug bears people who wear fixed metal braces complain about: food getting stuck in their braces and the seemingly never-ending task of painstakingly cleaning their teeth every morning and night. With Invisalign in Stanmore you can clean your teeth as easily as you did before starting treatment and continue to eat whatever takes your fancy.
The only rule you need to religiously obey is that you must wear your aligners for at least 20–22 hours a day. You’ll likely find this isn’t too much to trouble as Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than traditional fixed metal braces. With this discipline, you can ensure your treatment runs on time, with reliable results awaiting you at the end. Treatment takes on average between 12 and 18 months.
