Popular conception: We can rally against it, but even in doing so the cries of the masses still define us. Sadly, the Zeitgeist still deems fixed braces less than attractive. Perhaps one day we will overcome such attitudes. For the time being, however, even the least superficial of us might not want to contend with the horrors of shallow opinion on a daily basis. Thankfully, Invisalign have found a way of hiding a brace in plain sight.
Well, it’s a type of ‘Invisalign’ treatment which is best suited to minor corrections and is a lot faster than the original.
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment which consists of a series of clear aligners which gradually move your teeth into their desired position. Perhaps their biggest selling point is that they are practically invisible! Original Invisalign treatment could last between 12 and 18 months, but treatment time with Invisalign Lite usually lasts between 5 or 6 months!
Original Invisalign was not best suited to major orthodontic work and the Lite variant is even more specified. Invisalign Lite is suited for minor correction, can work with people of all ages and works very fast.
You wear an aligner for approximately two weeks and, during this time, your teeth are gently pushed towards your desired position. You simply need to keep changing them until treatment is complete!
That all depends on the point of comparison; if we compare Invisalign Lite to fixed braces, then we meet quite an extensive number of advantages, the main one being their lack of appearance. No one needs to know you’re having orthodontic treatment. They are also more comfortable than their fixed brethren, which are renowned for causing gum inflammation and irritation. Invisalign treatment also offers oral hygiene advantages as the aligners can be removed, thus allowing you to floss and clean your teeth freely. The Lite variation offers all of the above; it is just a lot faster. Contact the team at Harley Street Dental Studio in the city of London for more information.
