If it has been a while since you explored options for enhancing your smile then it may be time to pay a visit to Orpington Dental. We want to talk to you about the many options we have for getting you closer to the look you want.
When it comes to teeth straightening, there is one treatment in particular that has now been used to treat over four million people. While we don’t want to keep it a secret, you could if you wanted to because it is so discreet. We offer Invisalign in Orpington to clients who want to align their teeth for good without compromising their look in the meantime.
How does Invisalign in Orpington work?
One of our team is waiting to go through the full process with you and show you just what Invisalign looks like. However, there is some general information we can tell you about it right now.
When you first decide to get Invisalign, your dentist will take an accurate picture of your mouth to allow your braces to be custom made for you. We send the details off to our partners and they send a set of aligners back to our clinic in Orpington. Invisalign ensure that your series of aligners will make the adjustments you want gently and slowly but in a shorter overall time than you might imagine.
You take the aligners home and wear your first one for two weeks ensuring that you have it in place for a minimum of 22 hours per day. When you wear it, you might initially experience some mild discomfort. This is an inevitable part of moving teeth and it will subside. In the meantime, you can take painkillers to mitigate the effect if you wish to.
After the required interval, you can then swap this aligner for the next one in the series. Your teeth will have adapted to the first one by moving almost imperceptibly. The next one will cause them to move again. In this way, and with regular visits to the dentist, you will gradually move towards to the result you want.
