If you’re a fan of health innovations or you like to keep abreast with developments in the world of medicine and dentistry, you may have heard about Invisalign, an orthodontic treatment, which has taken the world by storm, but what’s so special about Invisalign and how can it benefit the patients of London W1?
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment, which offers a refreshing alternative to highly visible fixed braces. Rather than using brackets and wires to move the teeth, Invisalign uses a series of removable clear plastic aligners to gently bring about tooth movement. The treatment process is also different to traditional orthodontic treatment, as each aligner is slightly different and the treatment works in a set order, with each appliance in place for 2 weeks. The total treatment time depends on how many aligners are needed, which is dictated by the complexity of the orthodontic prescription, but the average duration is between 12 and 18 months.
Invisalign is an impressive solution, especially for those who have shied away from treatment because they didn’t want to be lumbered with highly visible, unattractive braces; these braces are light, comfortable and most importantly, virtually invisible, which makes the prospect of having treatment less daunting for those who have worried about taking the plunge and seeing their orthodontist in the past.
