A lot of people dread having their photo done. In the old days this would mean the occasional school photo or holiday snap. Unfortunately in the days of camera phones digital pictures can be taken at any time, increasing the fear that someone will see a crooked smile or a gap in the teeth. But there is no need to hide behind a scowl with Invisalign braces Essex!

What are Invisalign braces?

There are two parts to this. The first part is that Invisalign braces do the work of normal braces, straightening teeth and improving the quality of a smile.

The other side of this is that as the name suggests Invisalign braces are basically invisible. This is because they are made of a clear plastic that you can only really see if you are looking up very closely!

OK so people may not be able to tell I’m wearing braces. But surely with those things clamped on I won’t be able to eat or sleep comfortably?

This is indeed a concern with a lot of people when they were braces that have to be fixed on. It is indeed true that with older models (especially fixed ones) it can restrict what you can eat.

However this is not the case with Invisalign for the very simple fact that you do not need to wear them all the time! If you want to eat, sleep or go for a run you can simply take them out!

Aren’t braces for kids?

Quite simply no! Adult braces have been used for a long time to help people correct problems such as gaps between their teeth and misaligned teeth.

How does the process work? I don’t want someone hard selling me a treatment I don’t want or need.

A professional cosmetic dentist like Dr J Basrai will look at your oral health and decide if Invisalign braces are suitable. It is difficult to say whether or not they will be suitable for you as everyone is different. However a large number of people have benefited from using them, including a number of high profile celebrities!

The process usually takes around 12 months but may take longer depending on the alignment process, with some cases proving more complex than others. After a consultation, scans and impressions can be made to produce tailored aligners to suit your teeth (these will usually need to be changed every two or weeks or so during the treatment process).

The best thing to do is to discuss this during an initial consultation so you can get the full information on this. Get in contact today to find out more and see if Invisalign braces Essex can give you a clearer smile!

Crooked or misaligned teeth can have a profound effect on people’s daily lives. It may not sound like much but when you feel you can’t smile at people or you have difficulty taking a picture it can soon add up. The problem is that some people are afraid of getting braces because of how they look. This is where Invisible braces Essex can help.

How can you have invisible braces?

The invisible nature of these braces is not particularly complicated. Quite simply they are designed and coloured in such a way that they blend in with the teeth. Unless you know what you are looking for they are very difficult to spot!

How can invisible braces benefit me?

As with normal braces the idea is that the teeth in your mouth can be aligned over time. There is also the benefit of them being removable, allowing you to eat, sleep and do other things normally without the braces interfering with your daily routine.

What can you do to make sure they work for me?

An experienced cosmetic dentist can ensure that they are fitted properly and based around your teeth. Often they will use computer models of your teeth in order to get an accurate fit. Once this has been established aligners can be put in place so that the braces fit your teeth in the right way.

How long does the treatment take?

The treatment varies according to each individual and their own oral health. However on average it takes around 12 months. When you consider that older models can take up to 18 months it is a relatively short time!

What happens after the braces have been installed?

You will need a few check ups from time to time in order to make sure they are properly aligned and doing their job. However this something that an experienced cosmetic dentist can ensure is done properly and safely.

How do I know if the cosmetic dentist is right for this treatment?

There are several things to do that can help you decide if you want to use the services of a cosmetic dentist when choosing invisible braces.
