Everyone is aware of the importance of good oral health, and you may have an excellent dental hygiene routine and visit your dentist on a regular basis, but still be unhappy with the aesthetics of your smile. There are many different factors which affect the aesthetics of your teeth including misaligned teeth, crooked teeth, crowded teeth and teeth that protrude. These issues can detrimentally affect the look of your smile and may in turn have a negative effect on your self-confidence thus impacting other aspects of your life negatively too. At The Garden Dental Practise, we want to help you achieve a beautiful smile and what better way than to introduce you to our Invisalign Golders Green.

Who is Invisalign suitable for?

Many adults did not undergo orthodontic treatments when they were younger, and are now considering it in their adulthood. Fortunately, innovations in dental technology mean that orthodontic treatments have become more convenient, comfortable and accessible than ever before. A lot of adults may be put off by the thought of conventional braces which are made out of highly visible metal wires and brackets. Due to this common trend of reluctance, dentists have now developed a revolutionary alternative known as Invisalign. It offers you the same results as traditional braces do but with the benefit of being more discreet.

Invisalign Golders Green was introduced over two decades ago and has since attracted many hundreds and thousands of patients to correct the aesthetics of their teeth. Invisalign Golders Green is as the name suggests, an invisible orthodontic treatment which uses transparent, metal-free aligners to correct the alignment of your teeth. If you have clean and healthy teeth then you would be the perfect candidate for the treatment.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign, as suggested in the name, is a discreet form of orthodontic treatment which is why it is an attractive alternative to traditional braces especially in adults who feel uneasy and are put off by the visibility of metal wires and brackets in their mouth. During the procedure, the dentist will begin by carrying out a full examination of your mouth to make sure that you have no underlying health issues which may hinder the treatment or be aggravated by the treatment itself. Once the dentist can confirm that your teeth are healthy and in a suitable condition, they will carry out a series of x-rays and 3D scans of your teeth; these will be used to show you what a successful treatment can achieve in terms of alignment and migration of your teeth but also to create a series of aligners which are individually tailored to your mouth to provide comfort and accuracy of the treatment. These aligners are expected to be worn for two weeks at a time, and they will gradually move the teeth into the correct positions as moulded by the aligners.

Visiting the dentist during the treatment procedure will help ensure that your teeth are moving correctly and that no underlying issues are occurring in the meantime. The duration of the treatment is entirely dependent on the extent of movement necessary to achieve the smile that you are looking for, however on average the treatment usually takes up to a year with noticeable changes within the first three to six months of the treatment.
