Invisalign® Palmers Green – Let Our Dentists Take the Stress Out Of Teeth Straightening

The route to a symmetrical and natural-looking smile shouldn’t have to be a headache.

Thanks to Invisalign® Palmers Green dentist The Smile Studios can offer patients a low-hassle solution for teeth straightening.

Life’s tribulations can be stressful enough without having to think about making alternations to your daily life to accommodate braces.

There’s no longer the need to feel apprehensive at the thought of teeth straightening, especially since Invisalign® allows patients to:

  • Eat normally (no annoying bits of metal in the way!)
  • Brush normally (no having to navigate wires to reach your tooth surfaces when you brush and floss).
  • Maintain discreet teeth straightening (the aligners are transparent – scroll down for photographs of our patients wearing their Invisalign!)

What Is The Process Behind Invisalign®?

Invisalign® was designed to be a patient-centric and patient-friendly mode of teeth straightening. The process is fully digitised, which not only reduces appointment times, but in many cases overall treatment times too.

Advantages Of Invisalign® Vs Metal Braces

Whilst metal braces still have their place in the field of teeth straightening, “Invisalign® Palmers Green” continues to be an increasingly popular phrase our patients search for in Google. We understand why, as Invisalign® has a myriad of lifestyle-orientated advantages over metal braces, especially for adults who don’t want to go down the fixed braces route.

They’re easy to get used to

Whilst you may find it a little odd to wear your Invisalign® for the first couple of days, you won’t experience the discomfort associated with certain metal brace models.

Metal braces have many components such as metal brackets, wires and attachments. These elements have the potential to cause irritation at certain sites in your mouth. One of the most common problems is damage to metal braces, which can cause small metal parts to protrude and potentially come into contact with the soft tissues in your mouth.

Invisalign® aligners are a single piece of custom-moulded plastic that fit over the top of your teeth. Consequently, they’re far less likely to cause discomfort during treatment.

One of the main reasons why patients come in to see us more frequently when undergoing treatment with metal braces is due to discomfort-related issues. This is far less likely with Invisalign®, and you also will not have to attend appointments to have your brace tightened (which can sometimes cause discomfort for some patients).

No need to consider dietary alterations

Deciding on your meals each day and finding what you need in the supermarket can be difficult enough without braces to contend with.

One of the pitfalls of fixed braces is that no matter which design you opt for, you will need to think carefully about what you eat.

Sticky food like toffee and caramel, as well as hard foods like nuts, crunchy vegetables, apples and pizza crusts can potentially be bad news for your brace. These foods can easily become stuck in your brace (increasing your decay risk), or even cause damage to your brace.

This is not the case with Invisalign, which you can remove to eat completely normally.

No social restrictions

Metal braces can come between you and your social life, especially if you’re someone who feels quite self-conscious about their teeth.

As Invisalign® aligners are transparent, they’re barely visible to the naked eye. You can socialise with friends and feel confident in the workplace, knowing that no one can spot your aligners.

If you partake in contact sports, or play a wind instrument, unlike metal braces, Invisalign® accommodates these hobbies. Simply take your aligners out to put your protective sports mouthguard on, and play instruments like the flute, saxophone and oboe without a metal brace inhibiting your enjoyment of these activities.

Can I Be Sure I Will Like The Results Of Invisalign?

One of the stresses of opting for any cosmetic dental (or indeed skincare) treatment, is knowing if you will 100% be pleased with the outcome.

Here at The Smile Studios, we recognise that choosing to straighten your teeth with Invisalign® is a significant life decision as well as a financial commitment.

For this reason, it’s important that we give our patients a clear projection of how their new smile will look.

This is possible using ClinCheck software, which demonstrates the movements your teeth will go through during treatment. It also allows your dentist to explain the treatment process with clear visual aids including a mock-up of how your teeth will look at the end of treatment.

This gives patients a fantastic degree of reassurance from the very start of the months-long treatment process, taking any element of surprise out of the equation from the start. Many of our patients tell us how much relief this brings them, and that they feel highly motivated to start their treatment.

Your dentist will monitor your progress at each 6-weekly check-up, to ensure all the pre-determined movements are happening as planned.

Are There Adult Patients Who Are More Suited To Metal Braces?

Invisalign® requires a degree of autonomy from patients, such as remembering to wear the aligners for 22 hours each day, and to place them back in their box when they are not being used.

If you’re someone who thinks they may struggle with these aspects of treatment, a fixed brace might be more suitable. We can offer subtle fixed braces, such as lingual braces. These fit onto the back of the teeth, making them a great option for patients who want a subtle fixed brace.
