Smile like a champion with Invisalign adult braces

After what seems like a long void, the England football team have finally managed to get the nation smiling during what has proven to be an enthralling World Cup – and the journey is far from over yet! If football isn’t your thing, then there is plenty more sporting action with the Tour de France taking place and Wimbledon well under way. However, for those who are not happy with the crooked, crowded or gapped appearance of their teeth, watching the players, pundits and presenters can be a frustrating experience that increases how self-conscious you feel about yourself. Luckily, Invisalign adult braces offer a great solution for adults who want straighter teeth. You don’t need to be a sporting celebrity to afford it!

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a pioneering approach to adult braces that uses innovative, almost invisible components. These gently, safely and effectively straighten teeth in as little as three months.

It’s completely trusted by dentists and is used to give millions of patients something to truly smile about.

The state-of-the-art digital treatment planning tools mean you only need short and usually non-invasive visits to your dentist every 6 to 8 weeks. Because the aligners are removable, you can easily take them out to continue enjoying the food you love without any restrictions. For those who participate in contact sports, Invisalign clear aligners can be removed before you play.

Why choose teeth straightening?

Many people see teeth straightening as a purely cosmetic investment. Whilst the cosmetic benefits alone, including increased confidence and happiness, are worth the investment alone, there are other factors to also consider. A straighter smile is generally a healthier smile because it is much easier to clean your teeth properly and effectively. This makes you less susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. Teeth straightening may also correct your bite, helping to avoid pain in the jaw and excessive wear on teeth.

What does Invisalign treatment look like?

Your dentist will take photos, X-rays and digital scans of your teeth or create a dental impression. Advanced computer technology will then be used to design a precise, personalised treatment plan. This will include the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be.

Your custom-made aligners will then be carefully manufactured especially for you and will be sent to your dentist. Your dentist will then provide you with a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home. You will usually change your aligners every 1-2 weeks.

You’ll usually visit your dentist around every 6-8 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners. Finally, after finishing your treatment plan, retainers will be required to maintain your new smile.
