If you are currently unhappy with your teeth and are considering undergoing orthodontic treatment as an adult, you may be looking for a more discreet option to straighten your teeth. Thanks to continuous advancements in dentistry, there are now more teeth straightening options than before which can help those on their journey to achieve straighter teeth and an improved smile, with one of these options being Invisalign London.
What is Invisalign London
Invisalign is a custom-made aligner system that gently and effectively straightens teeth on nearly any type of movement. Its advanced 3D technology ensures that your treatment plan can be customised to meet your needs and desires. A popular alternative for adults who want to straighten their teeth, Invisalign aligners and both clear and removable, making them a discreet teeth straighten system when compared to other forms of orthodontic treatment such as traditional metal braces or fixed braces.
How to get started with Invisalign
If Invisalign is the treatment you wish to go ahead with and it is confirmed that the treatment is suitable for you, the first step is booking a free Invisalign scan with an experienced dentist. The dentist will use innovative 3D scanners to capture 3D imaging of your teeth, which is then used to create your aligners, without the need for moulds.
You will also be offered a free in-house consultation which will include what is known as an Invisalign Clincheck. The Invisalign Clincheck will allow you to see the progress of your teeth movement, week by week and also show you how your new smile will look. This will be sent to you alongside a detailed treatment plan which will include other important information such as how long the treatment will take and payment options.
Once you have confirmed you are happy with the information and want to go ahead with the treatment, you will be asked to sign an online consent form and you will also be sent a payment link. Following this your braces will be ordered, and you will either have the option to book an appointment to have them fitted by a dentist or your aligners will be delivered to you.
The benefits of Invisalign London
Invisalign is a popular choice particularly for adults for a number of reasons. Firstly, the aligners are clear, which means that throughout your treatment, other people will not know you are wearing them unless you tell them. The aligners are also removable, meaning that you do not have to worry about eliminating your favourite foods and drink throughout your treatment. With the aligners being removable, you are also able to maintain your oral regime and brush and floss as normal.
Invisalign is also made to be both comfortable and durable, and although you may experience some initial discomfort when wearing a new set of aligners, you will quickly become used to them and after a while forget you are even wearing them.
Invisalign also provides flexibility in that you do not need to attend appointments unless necessary, and the progress of your treatment is monitored using an app which can also be used to contact your dentist should you have any issues or concerns.
