If you have misaligned teeth, you may suffer from low self-esteem because of the condition. You may shy away from well-meaning friends and relatives who want to snap a photo or two on their camera phone, while you’re trying to hide or bear it in silence. At Nailsea Dental Practice, we can help teenagers and adults get their teeth realigned in a convenient, discreet and efficient way. As long as you have your adult teeth and have mild to moderate alignment issues, Invisalign could be an option for you and you could have the results you desire within just 6 to 18 months.
How Invisalign works
When you come to see our dentist in Nailsea, they will be able to explain in depth how Invisalign works. In a nutshell, however, it is a system that uses aligners that are worn over the teeth. They apply pressure to your pearly whites to gently push them into the correct position. You will need to change your aligners on a weekly/fortnightly basis and you will be given batches of aligners for 6 weeks at a time. To get your next batch, you just come to see us for a check-up and we’ll give you everything you need to take you up to your next appointment with us. The aligners are made bespoke to fit your mouth, so they should fit comfortably and work well on issues such as crossbite, under or overbite, crowded or gapped teeth.
Why should I choose Invisalign?
While Invisalign won’t be the right treatment for everyone, if it is offered to you, there are many reasons why we think you should say yes! Invisalign offers convenience for the wearer as the aligners can be removed for up to 2 hours a day. So, if you have a meeting or want to play sports, you can take them out and go for it! You can also remove them when you are eating, so you won’t need to clean your aligners afterwards, or alter your diet. You can also take them out when you want to brush and floss, which means that you can maintain your oral hygiene and shouldn’t develop any cavities as a result of wearing them!
Another benefit of choosing Invisalign is that our dentist in Nailsea will be able to show you a digital 3D animation of what your teeth will look like after treatment has been completed, before you even start wearing your aligners. Using iTero technology to scan your mouth for the measurements required to have your aligners manufactured, we can use this to generate the video for you. It can be really reassuring for patients to know what the results will be from the outset of their Invisalign journey and since we care about our patients’ happiness and wellbeing, we are delighted to be able to offer this provision.
