Invisalign as a Modern Alternative to Metal Braces

Suppose you have a few crooked teeth that you believe ruin your smile. Rather than wearing traditional methods to realign minor orthodontic issues, have you considered Invisalign in Maidstone?

Our dental team at Fresh Dental Care look forward to assisting you in attaining perfect teeth! In the meantime, read on to find out more about these discreet adult-orientated orthodontic devices, otherwise referred to as Invisalign.

Why do people enjoy most about invisible braces?

  • Virtually undetectable

As the name might suggest, invisible braces boast a subtle appearance. Users will receive clear aligners that few people will notice upon starting treatment.

Professionals can wear this device in the workplace without drawing any attention to their mouths.

  • Removable

The aligners you’ll receive from our dentist can be removed during specific activities like eating and brushing your teeth.

Thanks to the removable nature of these plates, no drastic changes to your diet or teeth-cleaning regimen are required. However, we do implore you to eat healthily and look after your teeth to keep your oral health in check!

Remember to slip your aligners back in afterwards. For the device to be effective, they must be worn most of the time.

  • Custom-fabricated

You’ll receive a series of aligner trays moulded to fit comfortably over your teeth and gums. You’ll find that each version is different from the last because each set gently shifts your pearly whites into their correct position.

  • 3D technology used

Invisalign boasts a vastly improved user experience over its competitors, starting from the moment digital impressions of your teeth are made.

Rather than using goop to attain moulds of your teeth, a method that isn’t 100% precise, we sweep a digital wand across the surfaces of your teeth, snapping countless images in real-time.

This advanced method is beneficial in the following ways

  • These accurate 3D images are used to create aligners that fit perfectly.
  • This approach is minimally invasive, meaning your gagging reflex isn’t induced nor will be fishing out flecks of moulds in the following weeks from your teeth and gums.

The Invisalign aligners we use

Our main focus is to correct minor problems, ranging from crooked teeth, spacing issues and overcrowding. We also treat teeth that have shifted out of position since being straightened.

We use two braces options to achieve optimal results.

Invisalign i7 is one of the latest orthodontic systems. Seven series of aligners are used over one to three months, depending on the nature of your problem. We recommend this treatment to individuals that want to repair mild to moderate issues in limited time. Have an upcoming wedding or special event? Invisalign i7 could be right for you.

Invisalign Express is another fast-acting treatment that straightens teeth faster than more comprehensive methods. Look forward to straighter teeth in as little as six months.

What are alternatives to Invisalign?

Invisalign might not be appropriate for individuals with unique or severe dental issues. Fortunately, we offer other forms of braces that are sleek, stylish, and comfortable to wear. Please inquire with our orthodontist for more information!
