When seeking out ways to straighten the teeth, you will most likely stumble across the world of orthodontics. The dental world has advanced in terms of knowledge, technique and equipment ensuring that misalignment issues, whether minor or severe, are dealt with effectively and this all comes under orthodontics. From braces Windsor to transparent aligners such as Invisalign, your needs are covered.
In order to guide you through the options, below are just a few points on one of the effective tooth realignment solutions.
Invisalign: a modern orthodontic solution for a healthier smile.
Helping millions of people worldwide, Invisalign has taken the world by storm and in a relatively short amount of time. Combining effective tooth realignment methods of pushing the teeth into a new position using specific pressure points, with a cosmetically appealing and removable appliance was an ingenious solution to misalignments. These transparent and removable retainers enable the patient to take matters primarily into their own hands and ensures that daily life is barely affected.
Altering multiple realignment issues.
When teeth are misaligned, it can be partially the result of an overbite, underbite or crossbite. These bite issues not only mean the jaw bone sits incorrectly but can impact the stomach’s acidity due to the inability to chew effectively. This can also occur when there are gaps created by the wonky tooth line up. No matter which alignment issue presents itself, Invisalign can assist and is a highly effective solution to multiple dental issues.
What to expect from the treatment.
Minimal maintenance, minimal time in the dental chair and more time for you whilst still receiving treatment. These transparent retainers are removable and therefore whilst you eat, they need to be removed ensuring that food debris does not get caught within, a simple rinse and a brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush will ensure that the aligner and your teeth remain in top condition.
Whilst the treatment does rely heavily on your own commitment, so keeping the aligners in place for the required 22 hours a day and sticking to your plan created for you, the time within the dental practice is reduced. With appointments often being spaced between every 4 to 6 weeks, daily life can continue without weekly tweaks and adjustments to your appliance. Daily life can be barely impacted.
Keeping things clear.
One of the more cosmetically appealing aspects to the aligner treatment is the transparent material. Created specifically from digital scans of your teeth, the aligners, which are made from a soft, versatile plastic, fit snugly to your teeth creating a seamless appearance. Whilst the outside world will be unaware that you are under going treatment, it is also important to ensure that you are comfortable during the process.
Although minimal discomfort is to be expected during any realignment process, should the discomfort become severe, it is vital to get in touch with your dental team. The tailor-made process is designed so that the entire process is not only highly effective in shifting the position of the teeth but also that it is as comfortable as possible throughout.
