People love looking at a lovely smile. Humans are hard-wired to check out each other’s mouths to see what their lips are up to. Are they open in a big, wide friendly grin? Are they turned up at the corners but closed in a secretive way? Are they pursed tightly shut or set in a grim line? All these ways of holding the lips and showing, or not showing the teeth send a message to other people about someone’s state of warmth, friendliness and emotional state. That’s hardly fair if the reasons someone is really hiding their teeth is because they are ashamed of them. Invisalign in SW14 is a great way of straightening up those embarrassing teeth so that a big, wide smile can become the norm instead of an occasional faux pas.
Invisalign in SW14 is a great way to straighten teeth that are mildly to moderately out of alignment, and it is available from various good dentists in the area, including Sheen Dental.
Different from braces
Invisalign is the original brand of a device that found a way to straighten teeth without the use of brackets and wires. It took its inspiration from the removable retainer that people wear after they have straightened their teeth to keep them in position. These retainers look like mouth guards and so do Invisalign clear aligners. Instead of one device that is constantly adjusted to move the teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners, each one slightly different from the last, to nudge the teeth into position.
Invisalign in SW14 has a couple of serious advantages that make it a very popular way to get teeth straightened.
Firstly, the aligners are removable. Patients take them out every time they want to eat or drink, then brush their teeth and put them back in. This allows people complete freedom in their food choices, and a much shorter time on tooth brushing. The aligners do, however, need to be worn for at least 20 hours a day, so discipline is required.
Secondly, the aligners are pretty much undetectable by anyone but the closest observer once they are in place. The clear plastic is only 0.3 mm thick and hugs the teeth.
