Treatment Spotlight: Invisalign Braces
Here at our Wolverhampton dental practice, we’re used to giving patients something to smile about. Whether it’s getting to grips with good oral care, creating a whiter, brighter smile or transforming teeth through straightening braces, such as Invisalign, you’re in safe hands with our team.
In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on one of our popular teeth-straightening treatments: adult braces from Invisalign. By the end of your read, we hope we’ll have answered some of your burning questions about this popular procedure – and, if you’re interested in trying it out for yourself, we hope we’ll have persuaded you to give it a go!
How Invisalign braces work
When most people think about adult braces, they conjure up an image of a mouthful of wires and brackets. Invisalign braces in Wolverhampton use aligners, which is a totally different experience. It’s more like wearing a retainer during the day – except the aligners are thinner, lighter, and likely more comfortable. What’s more, Invisalign is known for its clear braces, because the transparent aligners are virtually invisible. As you undergo treatment here in Wolverhampton, you’ll switch out your aligners every few weeks, which means the changes are made incrementally.
The benefits of Invisalign braces
Invisalign braces can help with much more than your smile – they can improve your oral health. In cases where your teeth are growing in a way where it’s hard to clean between them, Invisalign braces create a more uniform surface, which means there are fewer places for bacteria to hide. But, specific to these clear braces, you’ll have a super-comfortable fit, aligners you can remove for eating and brushing, and that invisible style that means nobody has to know you’re undergoing treatment. Invisalign braces are also ideal for treating a range of problems, from gaps and overcrowding, to bite alignment.
Taking the first steps
If you’re interested in clear braces in Wolverhampton, we’ll book you in for an assessment, so we can gauge your oral health and how much treatment will be involved. You’ll then get to see an image of how your teeth will look after treatment – and how they’ll change through the coming weeks. Finally, you’ll have your custom-made aligners created, which you’ll swap out every few weeks.
