There are some cracking ways you can go about getting your teeth straightened these days without all the ugliness and lengthy treatments that were on offer years ago. Just take a look at Invisalign; this is a master piece of engineering from our American orthodontic cousins across the Atlantic and it is very unique indeed in the way it works. Firstly, it works a lot faster than traditional braces- some variations on this aligner can get the job done in as little as 6 months, but it gets a whole lot better than just speed. The aligners that you will be kitted out with as the treatment progresses are removable which gives you and extra luxury when eating or cleaning your teeth. Best of all though, each aligner you wear will be made from a clear plastic, which essentially adds up to the most rewarding thing of all about Invisalign, you can barely notice it when it’s in your mouth; now this can save you from a world of ‘ribbing’ from school or work colleagues. Fancy it? Well it isn’t the cheapest option flying around today, but give Mulberry Dental a call for more information about this little wonderment of a treatment; they serve Weybridge and will help you out with anything that you need to know.

We all know somebody who wears or who has worn braces. In fact, they are more or less ubiquitous among the teenagers of today as having a great smile becomes more and more important. But are braces really the only answer? Ask anyone who wears them and they can list as many problems as there are hours in the day. Some of the common complaints are that they are painful, they irritate the mouth and they seem to last forever.
This last point is very important, as is the fact that speaking truthfully, a brace is never a good look and can really ruin a smile for the duration of treatment, which could be as long as three years. Finally, however, there is an answer to the question of braces.
Invisalign is a new invisible brace system that straightens teeth with little or no aesthetic impact during treatment. They are made from one millimetre thick clear plastic that is virtually invisible in the mouth. Each retainer-like brace is worn for a period of about three weeks before it is replaced with another.
Two of the major advantages of the Invisalign system are that it is completely removable and that treatment lasts o average six months less than with conventional metal braces. You really don’t seem to be able to loose, and then you are told that they may even be cheaper than a conventional brace. Ask your Shepperton dentist about Invisalign braces if you think you or your child’s teeth could do with straightening. It might just be the best decision you ever make.
