Having misaligned teeth may make you feel anxious or have low self-esteem. You may experience jaw pain, speech difficulties or issues with being able to clean your teeth properly. Getting your teeth realigned can therefore have major benefits both emotionally and clinically. We at Cannon Street Dental Centre, are Diamond providers of Invisalign, a popular treatment for mild to moderate alignment issues. Our patients love Invisalign for many reasons, including the convenience, discretion and comfort it provides.
What is Invisalign?
Imagine wearing a gumshield that is so streamlined you forget it’s in your mouth. Made to measure, the aligner is also virtually invisible to other people, so they shouldn’t realise you have something in your mouth. The aligners apply a little pressure to the teeth to gently move them into the desired positions over a period of time, which on average is 6 to 18 months. This is Invisalign, and our dentist in City of London could suggest this treatment for you.
What issues does Invisalign treat?
Invisalign is used to treat mild to moderate alignment issues such as crowded teeth, gapped teeth, underbites, overbites and crossbites. Our dentist in City of London will be able to examine your mouth during an initial consultation to determine whether or not this would be the right treatment for your specific needs. If it is decided that Invisalign is an option, we will then do a digital scan of your mouth using iTero technology to get the measurements required to custom-make your aligners for you. We can also use these measurements to generate a 3D animation of what your teeth will look like after the treatment has been completed. This should give you the motivation you need to enjoy wearing your aligners, as you will know how great your teeth will look after the treatment is completed.
What other benefits are there to choosing Invisalign?
Aside from the aligners being virtually invisible when worn and the fact that they are comfortable to wear because they are custom-made, the aligners are also removable, which is a big plus point when you want to eat, drink, brush or floss. You won’t need to clean masticated food off of your aligners, and you can take them out for up to 2 hours a day, so if you also need to remove them while you play a sport or meet up with friends, you can – the flexibility and choice are all yours.
Another benefit of choosing Invisalign is the fact that there should be little need to come and see us for emergency appointments since the plastic the aligners are made from is very durable, so it is very difficult to break them.
