More than 200,000 people in England started treatment with braces last year. Though most of these people were children, there are also many different options available for adults too. Invisible braces are a popular and effective means for straightening adult’s teeth and there are now many more choices than ever before.
It is time to get the best out of your teeth. Having straighter teeth can improve your ability to eat, bite and chew with more comfort and less concern about food being trapped in awkward places. Vogue Dental Care in Luton is one dental practice that can offer a wide variety of invisible braces to suit every lifestyle.
What are invisible braces used for?
Invisible braces can be used to straighten crooked, crowded or protruding teeth and close gaps between teeth. Some fixed invisible braces options can also be used to correct the bite of your teeth, in order for the top and bottom teeth to meet properly when you close your mouth.
What are the options?
- Six Month Smiles, an express invisible braces treatment that can straighten teeth in around just six months;
- Invisalign, a popular brand that uses a series of almost invisible clear removeable aligners that gently guide your teeth into place quickly and easily;
- Inman Aligner, a discreet system using just one thin metal wire to straighten your teeth, making them less conspicuous than traditional fixed metal braces.
Invisible braces can be both fixed for a set period, usually for more complex cases, or removable, meaning you can take them out for brushing, flossing and eating. However, it is important to note that when using removeable braces, they will still need to be worn for usually at least 20–22 hours a day to be effective.
It is vital that during treatment and after its complete, you take good care of your teeth by brushing and flossing regularly and keeping up with routine dental check-ups. A good dentist will also encourage you to look at reducing bad habits such as smoking and give you advice as to which foods and drinks are best to cut down on to ensure good dental health.
