Invisalign

It’s amazing how much information is taken in when meeting someone for the first time, and the judgements made based on that information. Are they trustworthy? Are they depressed? Happy? Angry? Covering something up? This collected almost subconsciously, can permanently influence your opinion of another person, especially in situations such as dating and job interviews. If they don’t smile, we think they are miserable or unfriendly, whereas the real reason may be because they have yet to experience the benefits of Invisalign in West Malling.

Fortunately, in West Malling, Invisalign is now available from dentists such as One Smile Oral Care.

The Aligners Revolution

Invisalign is a revolutionary method for straightening teeth. Instead of the usual braces equipment of brackets, bands and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic trays, rather like mouth-guards, to push your teeth into a straighter position.

Known as aligners, they have several advantages over wire and bracket braces. Firstly, wearing Invisalign in West Malling avoids the teenage look often associated with train track braces.

Secondly, the amazingly thin (0.3mm), clear plastic trays fit so snugly over the teeth that they almost cannot be seen at all by the untrained eye. Such invisibility has opened the door to straighter teeth for adults in positions of responsibility at work or in public-facing jobs. Also, importantly for many adults in the world of work, the aligners do not interfere with speech.

Thirdly, Invisalign aligners are not fixed to the teeth and can be removed. Keeping them clean is very easy, and keeping the teeth clean is easy too. Also, Invisalign wearers do not have to restrict their diet, because there is no chance of food getting stuck in, or interfering with, the aligners.

Also, if necessary, the aligners can be left in their special case for a few hours for important business or social events. However, the aligners do need to be worn for at least 20 hours a day if the treatment is to be complete on schedule.

Finally, Invisalign treatments are completed in about a year, and are a more affordable option than traditional braces.

Invisalign in West Malling is aimed at people who only need to realign their teeth, and do not require serious bite correction.
