For someone living with misaligned or crooked teeth, life can seem hard work at times due to the negative impact their teeth could be having upon their daily oral hygiene standards. Many of these people may find that they are living with discomfort or pain in their mouths throughout their life due to the misalignment of their teeth; they may also find that they have a heightened risk of developing dental issues such as plaque build-up or tooth decay.
One of the main problems that those living with misaligned teeth often report back to their dentists is that they find their teeth difficult to keep clean when brushing, and they know this may be causing them to live with a less-than-satisfactory level of oral health. This may then lead adult patients to conclude that the best way forward for their oral health standards would be to undergo dental alignment treatment.
What adults are highly concerned about when considering dental alignment treatment is the way their teeth will look while undergoing treatment, as most people conjure up images of traditional wire braces when thinking about dental alignment treatment. However, a modern treatment such as Invisalign London can eliminate this concern, as this treatment device can hide in plain sight when worn.
Gaining the benefits of treatment
There are many benefits to undergoing treatment with Invisalign beyond the visual of someone receiving excellent-looking teeth that will look appealing when smiling at others, as there are many health and hygiene benefits to undergoing treatment.
Patients can expect to gain some great improvements to their oral hygiene standards following treatment to have their teeth aligned due to the fact their teeth will be much easier to navigate with a toothbrush. This will make their teeth easier to keep clean and help to promote higher oral health standards within the mouth, minimising the risk of developing any oral health issues.
For patients who suffer from weakness in their bites, dental alignment treatment may be the solution, since it is possible to build added straight into their bites by straightening their teeth.
Created by moulding two pieces of clear plastic together to make the alignment devices that will be worn in the mouth by the patient, this treatment will be able to almost disappear when worn by the patient, as well as give them the great results that they are seeking from treatment. By the end of their treatment program, the patient’s teeth should be much straighter, and their oral health and hygiene standards should improve.
Unlike other forms of dental alignment devices, Invisalign London makes use of a series of alignment devices. Each alignment device must be worn in the mouth for two weeks and then swapped out for the next device in the series.
The patient will need to attend a consultation with their dentists to have their teeth and gums examined, and this will lead to their needs being completely assessed and an individual treatment program being created for their use.
