Many adults put off straightening their teeth for many reasons, with the cost in both time and pounds being some of the dominating factors. Dentists understand this and as a result, have been working on creative ways to offer their patients innovative options to ensure that their smile is as healthy as it can be.
Furthermore, professionals seek to provide solutions for their patients and many wish to have straight teeth but through candid conversation with their oral health care provider about their limitations, do not follow through with their desires.
However, with Clear Braces Direct London, patients can quickly, safely and effectively straighten their teeth in the comfort of their own home at an affordable price of monthly instalments with 0% interest. Dentists are doing everything they can to offer effective solutions for the issues that are raised during consultations and this treatment plan is just one of the many ways in which these compassionate professionals are going that extra mile to ensure health and happiness for their patients.
How does this treatment plan work?
The first step involves a scan which an appointment does need to be made for. There are multiple locations across the UK that can be used to book this scan which not only determines viability for this style of treatment but also is the base of the treatment itself, offering all the details that professionals need to know about the position of their patient’s teeth and how they need to be moved in order to create a healthy and beautiful smile.
Should a patient be accepted, then they receive their results in the post alongside a contract for them to agree to and sign, meaning that they are happy to go forward with the treatment plan that is laid out alongside the information provided.
Once the patient accepts and the first payment is made, the first aligners are digitally built and sent straight to the individual’s home where they can begin treatment at their convenience.
What is the treatment in a nutshell?
Essentially, the removable aligners are to be worn for 20 to 22 hours each day, only to be removed when eating. Teeth need to be brushed before they are replaced in order to ensure no hazardous bacteria or food debris is left on teeth to do damage as there is no saliva exposure on teeth like normal once the aligners are placed over the teeth.
The aligners are designed to gently push teeth into their correct alignment, unlike traditional fixed braces which pull teeth using brackets and wires. They are different methods but the end result is the same where teeth and the jaw are placed into correct alignment.
A retainer will need to be worn once the treatment has finished in order to hold the realignment in place. This is because the ligaments of a person’s teeth are slow to readjust and will simply snap back to their original position if not held in place for several months.
The retainer generally does not need to be worn for long periods and patient’s usually wear them overnight for a few days a week to make sure their teeth stay in place.
