If you have misaligned teeth, we understand that it may be something that you feel anxious about. It could also be impeding your attempts at brushing and flossing effectively, and by realigning your teeth, you can improve your oral hygiene and prevent bacteria from causing tooth decay and gum disease. If you are an adult, you may now feel that you’ve missed the boat and should have worn braces when you were in school. However, with Invisalign Chelsea, you can wear transparent aligners that nobody should be able to see, whether you’re an adult or a teenager – you just need to have your adult teeth! We at Chelsea and Fulham Dentist can get you a smile you will love in as little as 6 to 18 months.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign consists of plastic aligners that must be worn over the teeth like a gumshield. They will be made bespoke to fit your mouth using iTero technology, a digital scan that maps the measurements of your mouth precisely. From this scan, we can also generate a 3D animation of what your teeth will look like after treatment before you’ve even started it! When your aligners have been manufactured, we will provide you with 6 weeks’ worth to change between on a weekly basis. At the end of this period, you will then come and see us for a checkup and to receive the next 6 weeks’ worth of aligners. As you wear each set, they apply some pressure to your teeth to gradually push them into the desired positions.
Why should I choose Invisalign?
Invisalign can treat mild to moderate alignment issues such as crossbites, under or overbites and crowded or gapped teeth. With an initial consultation, our professional and friendly dentist can assess whether Invisalign Chelsea is the right treatment for your specific needs. If we feel that Invisalign is the way forward and you feel fully informed, then we will have discussed some of the amazing benefits of choosing Invisalign.
Aside from the fact that other people shouldn’t be able to see the aligners when you are wearing them, Invisalign offers convenience for patients, so you can continue with your life as normal. Another major benefit is that you can remove the aligners for up to 2 hours a day. This means that you can take them out when you are eating and drinking, and you won’t need to clean the aligners once you have done so. You will also be able to continue eating whatever you like as you won’t have to worry about damaging your aligners during mealtimes.
Another benefit is the fact that you can continue to brush and floss as normal; without having the aligners in your mouth, you won’t have to worry about being hampered by anything as you clean your teeth. What’s more, your aligners are highly unlikely to be damaged as they are made of durable plastic, so you shouldn’t need to take time out of your busy life to come and see us for emergency appointments.
