What about Invisalign, and is Invisalign right for you?

Invisalign in Luton is essentially a form of subtle orthodontics. Orthodontics are a form of dentistry that aims to realign, and therefore straighten the position of the teeth within the mouth. Traditional metal braces may be thought of when orthodontics come to mind, however within modern dentistry there are now a wide range of orthodontic options.

Despite common misconception, Invisalign aligners are also suitable to realign the position of the jaw, and correct a mild to moderate overbite. Invisalign has risen dramatically in popularity within recent years, for obvious reasons.

Invisalign may be suitable for individuals who suffer from crooked teeth, or simply wish to refresh the results of previous orthodontic work they have received, possibly at a younger age.

Individuals who may consider clear aligners

Patients who may be considering this form of orthodontics may be older, and may therefore not wish to undergo more obvious forms of orthodontics.

Patients who are aiming to develop their career may also feel as if obvious orthodontics may hinder their career prospects, and may therefore look towards clear aligners, or other forms of more subtle braces. Teenagers who suffer from low self-confidence may also consider clear aligners, due to their aesthetically pleasing appearance.

How do braces work?

Clear aligners are transparent plastic trays which fit perfectly to the shape of the mouth. Clear aligners work by slowly adjusting the position of the teeth within the mouth, by replacing the transparent trays every few weeks.

Invisalign has risen in popularity due to rapid and effective results, as well as their virtually invisible appearance. Although all forms of orthodontics differ, they all encourage the teeth to move in a positive direction, which results in a straighter smile.

The process

The process

In terms of the clear aligner orthodontic process, this all starts with an initial consultation much like any dental treatment.

During this initial consultation a patient and their dental healthcare professional will determine the best possible dental option for them, and decide when and how to start orthodontic treatment. After the chosen orthodontic treatment has been decided, the moulding or scanning process will commence.

A dental putty may be used to create the Invisalign mould, however a modern dental scanner (such as Itero) may also be used to eliminate the need for putty, as some patients may find this process unpleasant.

The final steps

Once the clear aligners have been sent to your chosen dental practice by Invisalign, you may start your clear aligner treatment.

Your first transparent tray should be replaced after a few weeks, your dentist may determine an estimate of how many trays may be required before your orthodontic process begins.

Individuals who are undergoing their Invisalign treatment with modern orthodontic technology may receive a virtual depiction of how their smile will appear after their Invisalign treatment process has finished.

Nervous patients

Some patients may experience anxiety when entering a dental environment, this may be due to negative childhood experiences, which may unfortunately lead to a dental phobia.

If a patient is experiencing nerves when visiting the dentist telling their dental clinic may ease their nerves, their local clinic may also provide means to ease these concerns and anxieties.
