Thanks to advances in dental technology and the introduction and establishment of modern dental braces, did you know that 1 in 5 orthodontic patients are now over the age of 18? More and more adults than ever before are addressing the misalignment issues of their teeth. Invisalign Ryde is one of the most popular modern braces and in the last 20 years this invisible aligner has helped treat more than 13 million patients across 45 countries.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign works using clear thermoplastic aligners that are made from medical grade polyurethane resins and are -free. With a patient satisfaction rate of more than 96% speak to your dentist and find out if Invisalign is suitable for you.
The aligners are designed to apply gradual pressure to your teeth and move them by increments until they reach the desired aesthetics. Each aligner is worn for two weeks at a time and then it is replaced by the next one in the sequence. For best results you have to wear the aligners for 22 hours of the day. They are easy to become accustomed to and as the name suggests they are invisible in the mouth. Patients of all ages have enjoyed teeth straightening with Invisalign.
Benefits of Invisalign
Teeth straightening with invisible aligners helps boost your self-confidence, encouraging you to smile more often to show off the transformation of your teeth. This has a positive impact on all aspects of your life. The treatment addresses the misalignment issues that have been affecting your teeth including crooked teeth, wonky teeth, overcrowding of the teeth, overlapping teeth and minor gaps in the teeth. By addressing these anomalies your teeth are less prone to damage, decay or disease.
In comparison to traditional orthodontic braces there are many benefits of Invisalign treatment. Both are highly successful methods of straightening the teeth, however, Invisalign aligners are almost invisible when worn in the mouth, no one will know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment unless you wish to tell them. Next, they are removable, therefore they are convenient and do not interfere with your lifestyle or choices. You are able to eat and drink as you like as the aligners are removed at mealtimes. Plastic aligners are also significantly more comfortable than metal brackets and wires in the mouth.
Another advantage of invisible aligners in comparison to traditional metal orthodontic braces is that they allow you to maintain a good dental hygiene routine, because you can brush and floss your teeth as normal. Finally, as you are able to keep your teeth clean throughout the process easily, unlike with traditional metal braces, there is less chance of developing tooth decay or gum disease as a result of wearing them. It is also likely that you will take better care of your teeth if you are happy with your smile. Speak to your dentist sooner rather than later and find out more about teeth straightening with Invisalign, the advantages that it can have on your dental health and how it can prolong the life of your teeth and prevent dental complications, or even tooth loss, in the future.
