Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, although there has been a worrying drop in people attending routine dental appointments, there has been increased interest in teeth straightening. Treatments such as invisible teeth braces have become more popular, most likely due to the fact that people are spending more time at home, looking in the mirror and thinking about the improvements they can make to their health, lifestyle and appearance.
If you have been thinking about improving your smile, to correct gaps or misalignments, and have heard about invisible braces but don’t really know what the treatments involve or why you should choose them, please read on. Here we have prepared a quick guide to give you the key benefits of invisible teeth braces.
Discreet Teeth Straightening Solution
If you want straighter teeth but are put off by the idea of traditional ‘train track’ metal braces, then invisible braces are the ideal solution. Choosing a treatment such as Invisalign clear aligners or Six Month Smiles gives you all the benefits of a teeth straightening solution but without making it obvious you are having treatment.
Whilst it’s possible to see the clear aligners or fine brackets and wires up close, at a time when we are doing all our communicating from a distance or via video call, you can have your teeth straightened without anyone noticing.
Whether you choose Invisalign or Six Month Smiles, you can rest assured that treatment will be more comfortable than with traditional metal braces.
With Invisalign you will wear clear aligners that have been specifically developed to gradually move your teeth into position. Your aligners will be changed approximately every two weeks to keep the teeth moving into the desired position. The aligners are comfortable to wear, as without any wires, brackets or sharp edges there is nothing to catch the inside of your mouth or tongue on. You can also remove the aligners to eat or brush your teeth, making it more comfortable and ensuring that you can keep on top of your oral health routine.
With Six Month Smiles you will wear a brace system made up of fine brackets and wires, designed to correct minor misalignments in a short period of time. The low forces being applied to your teeth ensure that the brace is comfortable to wear and with treatment times as little as six months, you know that any inconvenience is short lived.
Short Treatment Duration
Possibly one of the greatest benefits of choosing invisible teeth braces to straighten your teeth is the short treatment times. Of course the duration and the type of brace system recommended will depend upon your individual requirements and teeth positioning, but generally speaking for minor orthodontic issues, treatments such as Six Month Smiles can deliver results in as little as six months. This makes such treatments very attractive for those looking for a straighter smile in time for an upcoming event.
