At our dental clinic in Orpington we have been providing our new and loyal patients with a fantastic standard of dental care within a modern and friendly dental environment for many years. Our clinic not only offers standard cosmetic dental treatments such as tooth whitening, or porcelain veneers for example, but we also provide many orthodontic treatments, one of which is in the form of Invisalign in Orpington.
What is Invisalign in Orpington?
Invisalign could be argued as the most popular brand provider of clear aligners in the United Kingdom within modern dentistry, and even possibly worldwide. Invisalign has provided over four million happy smiles for a wide array of patients worldwide, and is the brand provider we use and trust at our dental clinic in Orpington.
How do they work?
The transparent plastic aligner trays are replaced every few weeks in order to slowly encourage the teeth to move into a prescribed position. The dental trays are custom made for each of our patients and their unique dental case, this ensures the best possible results are achieved.
Are clear aligners right for me?
If you are an individual who is suffering from crooked, misaligned, front protruding, or irregularly spaced teeth within the mouth, then Invisalign could be perfect for you. At our dental clinic within Orpington we wish to accommodate the demand for subtle orthodontics, which is why many of our patients look to clear aligners if they do not wish for obvious dental work.
Our target audience
Many of our patients who are interested in Invisalign may feel as if obvious dental work (such as more intrusive metal wires and brackets) could deem them as looking unprofessional when pursuing their careers. Also, despite common misconception, Invisalign is not only suitable for patients who are looking for first time orthodontics. They may also be used as an ‘orthodontic refresh’ for patients who have failed to retain the results of their previous dental work, such as conventional metal braces as a teenager, because of not maintaining the use of retainers.
What are the benefits of receiving Invisalign?
Clear aligners at our dental clinic are placed within the ‘cosmetic dentistry’ category, which we believe speaks for itself. Clear aligners have the benefit of appearing completely invisible, this means they are considered as aesthetically pleasing by many individuals, which can be a huge plus for patients who do not want anyone to know they are receiving orthodontic work!
How can Invisalign help improve your oral health?
Many of our patients may be aware of the huge aesthetic benefits Invisalign can have during and after treatment, however they may not be aware that receiving clear aligners can help improve their dental health. Straighter teeth lead to a more confident smile (due to the increased levels of self-esteem our patients experience) however they also reduce the chances of plaque and tartar build-up.
Preventing the onset of oral diseases and infections
Crooked or misaligned teeth can make it even harder to clean your teeth to an adequate standard. Straighter teeth make it even easier to prevent the accumulation of tartar, therefore reducing your risk of developing unpleasant oral issues.
