At Nailsea Dental Practice, we know the importance of being able to smile freely with confidence and exuberance. Ask any dentist in Nailsea at our practice and they will tell you that a perk of the job is seeing the pleasure that patients get from improving the appearance of their smile. If you have mild to moderate alignment issues such as a crossbite, over or underbite, gapped or crowded teeth, then we have a treatment that could be right for you. It is a discreet, convenient and comfortable solution that teenagers and adults alike can opt for if it is offered as a treatment by our dentists.
As the name might suggest, Invisalign is a treatment that involves aligners being worn over the teeth and they are barely visible when they are. Made of plastic, they are transparent and only your teeth should be on show as a result. When the aligners are worn, they apply a little pressure to the teeth to move them into the targeted position over a period of approximately 6 to 18 months. Treatment times may vary depending on the alignment issue and how your teeth respond to treatment.
The hype for Invisalign!
With numerous benefits, we think Invisalign is a pretty exciting treatment and if our dentist in Nailsea offers it to you, you should certainly feel the same. The top benefit could be that the aligners are barely visible when worn, but it could also be the fact that the aligners may be removed for up to 2 hours a day. This means that you don’t have to wear them at mealtimes and have a messy clean-up operation afterwards, and you can brush and floss as normal without having to work around them. You can also take them out when you want to play sports or catch up with people – the choice is completely yours.
Another benefit of Invisalign is the comfort that the aligners afford. The aligners are arguably more snug to wear because they are made bespoke to your mouth. We use iTero technology to scan your mouth and to get the measurements for your aligners to be manufactured to. We can also generate a 3D animation from this scan to show you what your teeth could look like once the treatment has been completed; it’s got to be a major motivating factor in your Invisalign journey and a dentist in Nailsea at our practice can make it all happen for you!
If you are interested in improving your self-esteem and gaining a beautiful smile, why not come and see us for an initial consultation? We will be able to examine your mouth thoroughly to see what treatment options would be suitable for you. If Invisalign isn’t an option, we may have other discreet solutions that could work better for you. You can ask as many questions as you need during this consultation, to ensure that you make a fully informed decision about the treatment that you decide to go ahead with. It’s our job to ascertain that you are confident, happy and raring to go! Once you have your wonderful smile, get ready to see where you can go in the world!
