At Nailsea Dental Practice, we don’t believe in making things difficult. If you need dental treatment, our dentist in Nailsea is here for you. We deal with general dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic treatments, and even facial aesthetics. Whatever you require, we should be able to help. To do that, we don’t over complicate matters; our ethos is to listen to you and your concerns, and from there we will provide a treatment plan that suits you and your needs. We keep up-to-date with the latest technology and training to ensure that we deliver the best care possible, because seeing the great results on our patients’ smiles is what we’re here for. One of the treatments that makes our patients smile is Invisalign for improving the appearance of misaligned teeth.
What is Invisalign?
Imagine wearing a gum shield that is streamlined and made to fit your mouth precisely. However, there’s no bulging, because the aligners that are worn for the Invisalign system are much more discreet than that. They are also transparent, so when they are worn they shouldn’t be seen by other people. The aligners apply a small amount of pressure to the teeth to gently move them into the targeted position over a period of time. Many patients see results in as little as 6 to 18 months. All you will be required to do is to change the aligners you wear on a weekly basis and you will be provided with 6 weeks’ worth of aligners each time you come to see us for your checkup.
Why we offer Invisalign
We have chosen to offer Invisalign because of the many benefits that it affords patients. The first is the fact that they shouldn’t be noticed when they are being worn. This is a great reassuring feature for many patients who may otherwise be self-conscious about having their teeth realigned. Another benefit of having the aligners is that they may be removed when you are eating and drinking, and for up to 2 hours a day. You won’t need to change your diet, therefore, and you will be able to remove them when you have a special occasion or want to play sports. Whatever your reason for taking them out, you have the flexibility to do so. By removing your aligners, you can also maintain an effective oral hygiene routine, as there will be nothing to impede your efforts at brushing and flossing regularly.
We also love the fact that we use iTero technology to scan your mouth and get the measurements for your bespoke aligners. With this digital scan, we can also generate a 3D animation of how your teeth will look at the end of treatment. By seeing this before you get started with Invisalign, it can be a really motivating factor in wearing your aligners.
