Many people get to adulthood with teeth that they do not really like: cracked, crooked, overcrowded or just not straight enough, they believe that their chance to be able to change the way that their teeth look has passed. Braces are for children, and if you get to eighteen without having had them, then it is just too late . . . right? Not quite. Dental technology has advanced so greatly in the last few years that it is now possible for someone of any age to be able to receive Invisalign braces, a brilliant treatment procedure that is virtually painless, only takes about a year, and even better, are almost completely invisible. Unless you tell them, no one will even realize that you are wearing them!
They sound too good to be true, but that’s just the advancement of modern dental technology. Invisalign braces are made up of clear plastic trays that the patient wears almost every single hour of the day, every day, for around a year. When you go in for your consultation, a mold will be taken of your teeth to see exactly what state they are in right now, and then a mold will be made of how you want your teeth to look when the entire process has been completed. A series of trays will then be made that will be slightly different each time from the teeth that you have now to the teeth that you want, and over the year you will move from one set of trays to the other, gradually encouraging your teeth to move with them.
There are many benefits of Invisalign over traditional normal braces, and the fact that you can have them at any age is just the first. Why not talk to Dr Paige Woods about the difference that Invisalign braces could have to your teeth?
