Invisalign with our dentist in Chingford
A beautiful smile is important for your self-confidence and self-esteem. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, then this can make you miserable and harm all aspects of your life. Speak to us at Chingford Smile and find out about the different treatment options that are available for improving the appearance of your teeth. One of the most effective ways of improving the appearance of your teeth is by undergoing orthodontic treatment. You need to book an appointment with our dentist in Chingford and undergo a thorough examination of your teeth and gums.
Is it safe to straighten your teeth?
To begin with, our dentist in Chingford will be able to confirm whether or not orthodontic treatment is suitable for you. It is essential that you have healthy teeth and gums to undergo orthodontic treatment; if you do not, then any underlying dental health complications will have to be treated before you proceed with treatment. This is because straightening your teeth can weaken them, and if they are already affected by decay or disease, then this can damage them sometimes irreversibly and eventually lead to tooth loss. Our dentist in Chingford will make sure that you are ready for orthodontic treatment before we begin to put together a tailored treatment plan for you.
An effective method of orthodontic treatment to improve the appearance of your smile is Invisalign. Invisalign is very popular amongst the modern generation; it is a modern method of teeth straightening that uses clear thermoplastic aligners to straighten teeth rather than traditional metal braces. This means that Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth at your discretion without anyone noticing that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. You can also maintain your usual diet and dental hygiene routine since the aligners are removable. On the other hand, metal braces are often highly visible in the mouth and can draw unwanted attention. If you are already embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth, then this may put you off orthodontic treatment; therefore, you need to speak to our dentist and find out whether Invisalign is suitable for you.
As mentioned earlier, treatment with Invisalign is suitable for patients who have healthy teeth and gums, and it is also better suited for those who have mild or moderate orthodontic issues where tooth rotation is not necessary to create a neatly aligned smile. Invisalign is suitable for patients with protruding front teeth, overlapping teeth, overcrowded teeth, minor gaps between the teeth and crooked or misaligned teeth. Many patients who have undergone traditional orthodontic treatment when they were younger but have found that their teeth have slipped over the years choose to straighten their teeth further with Invisalign. It is also suitable for patients who have never undergone orthodontic treatment before but have decided to straighten their teeth as adults. First introduced in 1999, Invisalign treatment has already been used by more than 14 million patients worldwide.
