Invisalign® teeth straightening in Matlock
The traditional route to correcting issues such as crooked teeth, gaps and crowded mouths has been with visible 'train track' braces. However, Invisalign® is clear, removable and comfortable
Invisalign® is a gradual method of straightening your teeth in an almost invisible way. The orthodontic treatment uses a series of custom-made clear trays called aligners. Discreet, comfortable and removable, the brace won't interfere with your lifestyle. It can treat a wide range of orthodontic concerns, including crooked teeth, gaps and crowded mouths.
We know that a straight smile often means a healthy smile. Not only will Invisalign® clear dental braces for adults straighten your teeth, they will also improve your overall dental health at the same time!
When there isn't enough space for your teeth to fit normally in the jaws.
When one or more of your upper teeth protrude over your lower teeth.
When one or more lower teeth protrude in front of your upper teeth.
Gaps can cause teeth to shift into the empty spaces and become loose.
When both upper and lower teeth are forced outwards so that they don't touch each other.
When one or more of the upper teeth bite on the inside of the lower teeth.
Invisalign® is the clinically proven, nearly invisible way to straighten your teeth without metal braces. The system is used to correct a wide range of orthodontic concerns, including crooked teeth, gaps and crowded mouths. Invisalign® treatment won’t interfere with your appearance or your life.
The clear brace straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for you. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
At Springmount Dental & Aesthetics we know that a straight smile often means a healthy smile. Not only will Invisalign® clear dental braces for adults straighten your teeth, they will also improve your overall dental health at the same time!
Your Invisalign® aligners are custom-made with proprietary SmartTrack material. They fit snugly over your teeth and are clinically proven to improve control of movement, gently moving your teeth and even rotating them when needed.
Invisalign® aligners move teeth through a series of carefully controlled movements. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® treatment not only controls the amount of movement that each aligner delivers but also the timing of the movement. So, at each stage, only certain teeth can move, following the Invisalign® treatment plan for that particular stage.
The time taken depends on the complexity of the treatment and is generally comparable to that of traditional braces. During your consultation, your dentist can give you more detailed information.
The aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
The metal wires and brackets of traditional fixed braces often trap food, which can lead to a build of up plaque and eventually tooth decay. As Invisalign® clear dental braces are made of plastic and are removable, you can continue to brush and floss as you normally would to maintain good oral hygiene.
Straighter teeth are also less susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. When teeth are properly aligned, the gums fit securely around the teeth, allowing for a strong defence against periodontal problems.
As the Invisalign® system discreetly does its work, life can continue as normal. Invisalign® aligners are trimmed to your exact gum line so you can comfortably wear your aligners for the recommended 22 hours a day with little disruption. Even when you’re not moving, your teeth will be.
