As much unnatural as it may seem to have crooked teeth, they are very much natural indeed. Around 7 out of 10 Britons visit a dentist due to crooked or decaying teeth. Everyone strives to have the perfect smile, so you’re not an odd one out for wanting to perfect yours.
Thorndike Implant and Dental Care in Kent offers a variety of methods to straighten your teeth, including Invisalign braces. Invisalign are custom made to help re-align your teeth. They were first introduced in May 2000, and have recently accumulated a lot of popularity as many patients find it easier to go about their life with them instead of braces.
Here are the reasons why Invisalign is better than braces
Invisalign braces are custom made to sit comfortably around your teeth. Whereas, the brackets and wires of traditional metal braces can graze against your mouth and cause sores and discomfort.
Invisalign also offers the comfort of being transparent. As they are colourless, you do not have to be conscious about your look in public.
Clear aligners are easy to take out and put back in. However, traditional metal braces are metal brackets glued to the teeth and wrapped around with a metal wire, fixing them in place until the desired results are achieved. Invisalign braces are easy to look after as well. They can be rinsed in a tray of lukewarm water. However, braces require much more attention as one has to make sure that the brackets as well as wires are cleaned properly while brushing or flossing.
- Eat all you want
With traditional metal braces, one has to be very particular about what they can or cannot eat. If you wear clear aligners, you can eat whatever you want as you have the option of taking the aligners out.
If you are experiencing any major or complex issues with your teeth, Thorndike Implant and Dental Care offers a variety of solutions for your dental needs, so feel free to contact us today and discuss if clear aligners are the right option for you.
