How do people straighten their teeth?

There are now a number of options available to you if you are looking to have orthodontic work done to your teeth. A lot of people opt for Invisalign Golders Green as it is a more subtle way of achieving straight teeth. You may have heard of Invisalign Golders Green as it has now become one of the most popular and common ways of aligning teeth. It is widely popular among adults who either want a more discreet method of straightening their teeth, or work in professional settings and do not want to wear obvious metal braces.

Invisalign uses transparent or ‘invisible’ medical grade plastic trays that are tailor-made to straighten your teeth. The trays work identically to metal braces by applying gentle yet constant pressure to your teeth to gradually push them into your desired place. Over time, your teeth begin to look more cohesive.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign consists of a set of individual trays that are made to measure, in order to fit your teeth. Your dentist will discuss the treatment length with you, but this usually varies from 6 months to 18 months; the duration of the treatment is largely dependent on the degree of alignment required and your personal preference. The trays are only slightly different in shape and will need to be worn for the entire day except when you eat or clean the aligners, to ensure maximum performance and to make certain that you are making the best use of them. It is possible to drink while wearing the trays, however we advise that you remove the aligners before eating as biting down and chewing can cause damage to the trays. It is important that you wear the trays as prescribed by your dentist, otherwise the treatment will not work correctly, and you will not see the results that you are hoping for.

How quickly can I see results?

A common question we get asked by patients is how soon they will see results. It is entirely possible that you may begin noticing some changes in the alignment of your teeth within the first few weeks of the treatment, and you may physically be able to notice changes by six months. We must stress the importance of continuing the treatment to ensure that you achieve optimal results.
