With misaligned teeth, it can be difficult to feel comfortable and at ease about smiling when you meet up with people you are pleased to see. When a joke is cracked, your face might feel like it could crack too, as you strain to contain the act of smiling for fear that everyone will see your teeth. And when the photo opportunities are presented, you sit tight lipped or maybe you are absent from the photo altogether. If any of these or similar scenarios resonate with you, then you may be considering visiting your dentist for help or maybe you are too afraid to in case they recommend fixed, visible metal braces. For mild to moderate alignment issues, however, there could be another way that is effective and discreet with Invisalign W1.
Why should I consider Invisalign?
Invisalign is a flexible method of realigning your teeth. The convenience box is checked by the fact that Invisalign uses plastic aligners that can be removed whenever you feel like it for up to 2 hours a day. This enables patients to have flexibility and control over when they use the aligners and when they want to have a break. When the aligners are worn, they are also very discreet because the plastic is transparent. This means that while the aligners are in your mouth, other people shouldn’t realise that you are wearing them, as only your teeth will be on show through the plastic.
What are the benefits to realigning my teeth?
By choosing to get your teeth aligned, you are protecting your teeth and gums from complications that can arise from not being able to clean misaligned teeth properly. With an even smile, it will be easier for brushing and flossing to be done effectively, reaching all parts of the teeth and gums as much as possible.
Another benefit is the fact that aesthetically your smile will be more attractive and this can lead to an improved self-esteem. No more will you need to shy away from humour, photos and laughter! You will also find that if your teeth are aligned better, you may suffer less discomfort if you have had issues with your jaw and the surrounding muscles in the past. With malocclusion correction, you may also find that your speech is improved, if you had difficulties with enunciation when your teeth weren’t straight. There are certainly many benefits to getting your teeth aligned with Invisalign!
If you decide you want to know more about Invisalign, the first thing you will need to do is find a dentist who offers this treatment. You will need to book in for an initial consultation, where your dentist will examine your mouth, possibly by taking X-rays, for example. They will be able to assess what your alignment issues are and make recommendations for the treatment options available to you. Through discussion with you, you should be able to make an informed decision about the treatment that is right for you. If Invisalign is an option that you wish to go with, they will then be able to scan your mouth using iTero technology to get the measurements for your aligners to be made bespoke. They will also produce a 3D animation of what your teeth will look like after treatment has been completed to really get you excited about the impending results!
So, if you go for Invisalign, get ready to smile freely! It’s a brave new world!
