If you’re a teen or adult considering braces, you’ve probably heard of Invisalign in Stanmore. These clear aligners are the next evolution in teeth straightening technology, as they do their job without the use of brackets and wires. This means that they are:
easy to clean
have a low risk of causing tooth decay
fit into your lifestyle
unlikely to be seen by others or commented on.
And while you may know the basics of Invisalign in Stanmore, you may not be aware of how many different types of treatment are on offer with this invisible brace system.
Adolescence can be a tricky time. Everything is changing so fast, there’s life-changing exams to study for and growing pains can make life a bit of a challenge. Add into the mix a strong need to fit in and huge amounts of self-consciousness, and most would agree putting braces into this picture isn’t going to lead to a happy teen.
Unfortunately, many teenagers who need braces do have to have fixed metal ones because they need serious realignment work, and these are still the best tool for this job. However, if your youngster only needs a mild to moderate readjustment of their teeth, Invisalign Teen could be just the job. The clear aligners mean no taunts of ‘brace face’ or lengthy cleaning routines. The only thing to bear in mind is that it takes a certain amount of discipline to take the aligners out before each meal, clean them and the teeth, then pop the braces back in place. They need to be worn for 20-22 hours a day for the treatment to stay on track. As long as your teen is up to this job, this could be a great option for them to get straighter teeth and maintain their social profile.
Invisalign I7 and Lite
These use the same technology as Invisalign Full, but fewer aligners, for milder misalignments. I7 is less than one third the price of the full version, so it’s well worth considering all your options.
