This isn’t the case any more, with more and more dentists like Sheen Dental offering Invisalign and similar, more modern treatments. If a person thinks they are a suitable candidate, they should visit the practice in SW14, Invisalign can only be administered by a professional.

Straighter teeth are happier teeth

Dentists know that a person’s teeth work better when they work together. The effects of time can be slowed down when teeth are straight are aligned. In SW14, Invisalign offers exactly this.

When teeth are crooked, they are at more risk of uneven wear, cracking and chipping due to the uneven pressure being applied to certain teeth when chewing. This can be made much worse if a patient is living with tooth grinding.

Another benefit of having straighter teeth with no gaps between them is that when teeth are aligned and equal, they are easier to keep clean. Brushing and flossing is made much more effective. This will help the patient to avoid nasty things like tooth decay and gum disease.

How Invisalign works

In SW14, Invisalign treatment involves wearing a series of custom-moulded tooth trays. These trays are designed and planned specifically for each patient at the beginning of their treatment.

The trays are to be changed every two weeks and are slightly different in shape from one to the next. This gradually and gently adjusts the patient’s teeth to their pre-planned position. A big advantage of these trays is that, because they are transparent, the trays are almost completely invisible when they are on the teeth.

Another huge advantage Invisalign has over more traditional treatments is that the trays are completely removable, allowing the patient to simply remove the device at meal times and when it comes to cleaning their teeth.

Invisalign is truly a much more practical treatment that fits many more patients’ lifestyles than more traditional options possibly ever could. Invisalign will get the patient feeling confident and happy with their smile.
