Straighten Up and Smile Bright

Share this post

Straighten UpIncreasing numbers of people are looking for ways to improve their smile and as a result adult orthodontics has become much more popular during the past few years. One reason for this has been the introduction of nearly invisible treatments, in particular Invisalign. This is one of the most popular teeth straightening systems in the world and with very good reason.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Invisalign is virtually invisible but it’s also incredibly easy to use and has very little impact on day-to-day life. It uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit tightly over the teeth, gradually moving them into pre-planned positions. All you need to do is wear each set of aligners for two weeks before discarding them and moving on to the next set in the series. One of the really nice things about Invisalign is that there’s no need to change your eating or oral hygiene habits. You won’t need to avoid hard or crunchy foods as you take the aligners out whenever you eat as well as for brushing and flossing. This makes it super easy to maintain good dental health right throughout treatment. 

Who Can Use Invisalign?

Invisalign is suitable for adults and it also has an aligner system specifically for teenagers. It’s great for correcting a whole range of orthodontic problems. As well as a system for teens, Invisalign also produces a more cosmetically oriented option that concentrates on moving the front teeth only and which can produce results in just a few months.

See the Predicted Results before You Begin Treatment

A really enjoyable part of the planning process is the ability to see how the teeth will move in a series of digital images, right up until treatment is completed. It’s a great way to assess the efficacy of Invisalign and makes it easy to see the benefits of teeth straightening.
