Here at Blyton Dental one of our favourite, and increasingly popular, adult orthodontic treatments is Invisalign® . This is a clear, removable brace that has the power to transform almost any orthodontic imperfection. This treatment is first and foremost associated with its ability to create a straighter and fuller smile; and we’ve seen some amazing results with our patients.
Invisalign® is comfortable to wear as it is made to fit your teeth exactly. Here at Blyton we have an iTero Intraoral Scanner , so there is no need for awkward impressions (moulds) to be taken. If Invisalign® is also completely clear making it virtually unnoticeable.
There are also some hidden advantages of Invisalign® that come hand in hand with the more obvious benefits, so you can really start to see the value of this brace.
Broadly speaking the clear aligners will help you see an overall improvement in your oral health both during and after the treatment, but more specifically:
1. While wearing your aligners you are required to brush your teeth three times a day. This tends to be an increase on those who don’t wear Invisalign®, so think what that extra brushing each day can do for your overall oral hygiene! Whereas traditional braces are known to trap food, causing plaque to build up, the removable nature of Invisalign® ensures this doesn’t happen. Thus Invisalign® keeps teeth cleaner and free of plaque.
2. In terms of the benefits of better oral hygiene once the aligners are off, the treatment is known to create and maintain healthier gums. What the treatment can resolve are crowded teeth or gaps in your smile. Once this is resolved, gums tend to wrap around the teeth more comfortably, which promotes healthier gums that are less prone to inflammation and gum disease.
3. Similarly, once teeth are straightened by the clear aligners, those ‘hard to reach’ areas get eliminated so that you can remove plaque more thoroughly when brushing. This means your mouth is at a reduced risk of experiencing tooth decay.
We do hope you can see that Invisalign® has a whole host of less obvious assets, and that the treatment really is one of our best sellers for a reason.
