You might want to practice that winning smile because after using Invisalign in Winchester, it certainly won’t be your perfectly straight teeth holding you back.
What is Invisalign or, as some misspell it, Invisaline?
Using no metal, these braces are close to being invisible. Invisalign in Winchester is often referred to as hidden braces. Invisalign aligners straighten your teeth gradually using a series of clear plastic aligners. They are custom-made specifically for your teeth using the 3D computer technology.
It is recommended that you wear your aligners for at least 20–22 hours a day to ensure that your treatment is effective and runs to schedule. You can however remove your Invisalign aligners to eat, drink, and brush your teeth. This makes maintaining good dental hygiene much easier than with fixed metal braces, as there is no chance of food getting stuck in your braces.
Each aligner is worn for approximately 2 weeks, before moving onto the next one in the series. The length of the treatment varies from person to person but on average, the treatment period for Invisalign in Winchester is usually around 12 months to 24 months.
Benefits of Invisalign
Not only will almost no-one know that you are wearing braces, the smooth plastic design of the aligners means metal allergies aren’t a worry and they are more comfortable in your mouth than fixed metal braces. Careful treatment planning using 3D technology, also means the results and treatment times are predictable. You can even see how your teeth will look at each stage of the treatment using this technology. The main benefit though is the confidence you will have when you dazzle someone with your perfectly straight teeth at the end of your treatment with Invisalign.
