In modern society where social media plays such a central role in our lives and where we are influenced by celebrities and social media influencers, it is not surprising that teenagers and young adults look up to these people for inspiration, particularly when it comes to their appearance. One of the first things that people look to have done is aesthetic work to their teeth as this tends to be one of the more noticeable features of a person’s face and so their biggest insecurity. Unfortunately, teeth are something that people cannot hide or shy away from and so Invisalign Golders Green is one of the main treatments that people opt for.

What treatments are available for straightening teeth?

One of the most upcoming and in demand treatments available to straighten your teeth is known as Invisalign; it is a dental treatment that works identically to traditional metal braces but without the visibility of metal wires and brackets. It is an ideal substitute for adults who have delayed getting their teeth straightened and would like to now begin the process but in a more discreet way. If you are looking to get Invisalign Golders Green then look no further than The Garden Dental Practice. We are a leading practice, with highly trained professionals who will be able to deal with your requirements with expertise and a friendly approach.

How does Invisalign work?

If you want to have Invisalign Golders Green to straighten your teeth then contact our practise for a preliminary consultation. At this initial consultation, your dentist will discuss the treatment and undertake a thorough examination of your mouth to check the extent of alignment and treatment required to achieve maximum results. It is important to note that in order for you to be considered for the treatment, your oral health must be in good condition as the treatment will not be successful otherwise. The dentist will then carry out an x-ray and also inform you of the length of the treatment that you will require. Treatment plans are usually between 12 and 24 months and your treatment plan varies in each individual case.

Your dentist will also have to take imprints of your teeth which will be sent off to a dental laboratory where your Invisalign trays will be created. Once the trays are back with your dentist you will be contacted for your fitting appointment; there your dentist will fit the trays and make sure they are comfortable or make any minor adjustments if necessary. You will then be given your instructions on how to look after your trays and maintain your teeth until your next appointment.

Next steps and aftercare

It is essential that you wear your Invisalign trays for a period of 18 hours a day minimum; this is to ensure that you gain the maximum benefit from the treatment. It is important that you take your aligners out when you need to eat in order to avoid breaking or staining the trays, however you can keep them in when you are drinking water. Additionally, it is pivotal that you maintain good oral hygiene at all times, so we recommend that along with brushing your teeth, you brush and clean the Invisalign trays. In doing so, you can ensure that they do not retain any bacteria which can lead to further issues.
