Many of us will have some form of braces at some time in our life to fix wonky teeth or an over/under bite. Some of us were offered the treatments on an NHS scheme when we were much younger, but now that we’re no longer eligible for free dental procedures what are the options?
Whilst there are still the options of traditional braces, there are much more advances options for you to choose from now that technology has advanced.
An example of the great movement in technology within dentistry is the treatment called Invisalign.
The great thing about this Is that you see the difference after as little as 3 months rather than up to and over a year with traditional braces.
This means that we don’t have to worry about waiting a long time to be free of the way braces look or feel and we can go back to ourselves quicker.
Building on the previous point, the feeling of the braces, Invisalign are much better fitting than other aligners and braces, meaning that it’s much harder to notice them for that shorter period of time. This helps you forget about them and also means they are difficult to notice by others.
You can also choose to have removable or fixed aligners. The clear ones are similar to a retainer and can often take longer than the fixed ones (which are still discrete).
They are custom-made and made from a smooth plastic material. You can also take them out as you wish so you can eat and drink as you normally would.
See a dentist near you that provides Invisalign as one of their treatments so that you can get the treatment that you deserve.
