It’s been reported that as many as 40% of the British public are currently unhappy with their teeth. Our teeth certainly mean a lot to us, as they’re visible throughout the day, during our speech and expressions. If you’re unhappy with crooked, misaligned, or generally unappealing teeth, then the chances are you’ve considered straightening them before. Many adults, however, tend to shy away from adult braces for the fear of their stereotypical look of the ‘train track’ brace – which in fact isn’t the only option available. We’d like to introduce the Invisalign in Stoke-on-Trent.
What are Invisalign aligners?
Invisalign take traditional braces and completely bring a brand-new aesthetic look to the term braces. For example, a lot of adults opt for Invisalign because the linger trays are clear. This means they give you a discreet look, allowing your natural teeth to show through the plastic so they block your smile. There are no metal wires or brackets, but instead a smooth clear plastic that doesn’t infringe on your natural expression and confidence.
Invisalign are removable
You will be pleased to know they are indeed removable. They are not fused to your teeth dental adhesives, brackets, and wires but instead fit over your teeth rather like a gum shield albeit a clearer, more comfortable and more natural looking gum shield. They can be taken out for meals, cleaning your teeth, and the occasional social gathering so that you don’t find yourself limited to conversations.
Invisalign doesn’t limit your diet
Adult braces typically come equipped with a lot of do’s and don’ts when it comes to eating and diet. With the likes of apples, crusty bread, toffee or any sticky sweets – you’re simply limited to what you can enjoy. Because Invisalign are removable, there’s no need to alter your meal times or skip over your favourites on the menu. All you’d need to do is remove the aligner, enjoy your meal, clean your teeth and pop them back in again.
Invisalign are more comfortable
As mentioned, there is certainty a lot of discomfort associated with traditional braces. Because they’re fused to your teeth, there’s a lot of pulling and forcing on your teeth to create a more aligned position. Not only this, but you are prone to snapping your wires, or your brackets shifting which will cause discomfort and additional visits to the orthodontist. Invisalign braces are made of smooth durable plastic, so there should be very little discomfort on your soft tissue.
