At Cannon Street Dental Centre, we have a wide range of dental treatments to suit all patients’ needs. Whether you require general dentistry or something more specialised, we can help. For patients with misaligned teeth, visiting our dentist in City of London at Cannon Street Dental Centre could be the move you need to make to gain a straighter smile. We are leading specialists in Invisalign treatment, which is used to treat mild to moderate alignment issues. The treatment is effective, discreet and convenient for patients, which is why it is a firm favourite of ours and theirs.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign, as its name suggests, is a treatment that uses plastic aligners, which are invisible when worn over the teeth because the plastic they are made from is transparent. As such, the aligners are almost invisible when worn, which allows patients to wear them with confidence. When the aligners are being worn, they push the teeth gradually into the targeted positions, and treatment can take as little as 6 to 18 months on average.
Are they comfortable to wear?
The beauty of Invisalign is that the aligners are made to measure by our dentist in City of London here at Cannon Street Dental Centre. We use iTero technology to scan your mouth to get the measurements for your aligners, and from this digital scan, we can also generate a 3D animation of how your teeth will look once the treatment is completed before you even get started. It’s a great way to ensure that you will be happy with the treatment plan before embarking upon it and give you peace of mind that you will achieve the look you want. With the bespoke aligners, they should also be comfortable to wear as they are made to fit your mouth and sit snugly on the gumline.
Why should I choose Invisalign?
Invisalign is a treatment offered to patients with alignment issues such as crossbites, underbites, overbites or crowded or gapped teeth. While it may not be a suitable treatment for more complex issues, if it is an option for you, there are many reasons to go for it! Firstly, the aligners can be removed for up to 2 hours a day, which means that you are free to take them out whilst eating and drinking, so you won’t need to clean up your aligners after mealtimes nor will you have to worry about cleaning food off of them. You will also be able to take them out before brushing and flossing, which will allow you to maintain good oral hygiene.
You can take the aligners out whenever you feel like it or if you have a sport to play or a special occasion to attend – the flexibility to choose is one of the reasons we love Invisalign! With improved alignment as you wear your Invisalign aligners over time, you could also see an improvement in your speech or jaw pain if you’ve been experiencing any issues with this.
Sounds great. How do I get Invisalign?
If you think Invisalign might be the treatment you want to have, you just need to book an initial consultation with our dentist in City of London. We will examine your mouth and jaw and may need to take x-rays to determine what your alignment issues are and what the treatment options should be. If Invisalign is the treatment for you, then you will be able to get started on your Invisalign journey with us! We want you to get in line for Invisalign!
