Determining if you need teeth straightening and Invisible braces
You can answer this question by simply looking into the mirror. If you see crooked, misaligned teeth, it is probably worthwhile to go for a teeth straightening procedure. Since many conditions can be cured using non-orthodontic means, it is recommended that you seek advice from a dentist to determine if you would derive any benefits from teeth straightening.
Invisalign Exeter vs. Braces
Both Invisalign and braces are used for teeth straightening and each has its advantages and disadvantages. Braces are metal brackets that are attached to your teeth and held together with metal wires. Invisalign, on the other hand, are invisible clear aligners made of smooth and BPA free plastic that encases your teeth. There are many different types of braces. Clear aligners, braces on the inside of your mouth, Clear braces, and metal train tracks. A full assessment is required to establish which brace is suitable for you.
Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign depicts your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth – and your teeth only – to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for 1-2 weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
Dentists or orthodontists have, in the past, successfully used removable appliances for years. But with the application of Align Technology’s 3D computer technology and mass-customisation, the Invisalign System can be used to treat a wide range of patients who want straighter teeth. The unique ClinCheck® software allows patients to see their treatment plan from beginning to end even before the start of treatment.
