There are many factors that can affect the alignment of your teeth and have a direct impact on the look and health of your mouth. It is very rare to find well-aligned teeth unless you have undergone orthodontic treatment at some point in your life. The majority of adults here in the UK suffer from a certain extent of dental misalignment, and this can have a detrimental impact on many aspects of their lives.
Misaligned teeth can impact your self-confidence and the way you feel when you look in the mirror. As a result of low self-esteem, your social life and professional career may also be affected since you would have to constantly think about your teeth whilst speaking, smiling or taking a photograph. Misaligned teeth also have a direct impact on your oral health and result in many different dental health problems. This is because if your teeth are crooked, then there would be plenty of areas that are hard to reach with a toothbrush, allowing bacteria to inhabit and thrive. If your teeth are neatly aligned, then you can brush them more effectively and floss in between them, so bacteria would have less chance of remaining in your mouth.
Who needs Invisalign?
Speak to us at Quest Dental Care to find out about Invisalign in Ipswich.
Invisalign in Ipswich, as the name suggests, is an almost invisible and modern treatment method for addressing the misalignment issues of your teeth. It may be suitable for those who suffer from mild or moderate misalignment issues or have undergone orthodontic treatment previously and would like to improve the look of their teeth. Invisalign in Ipswich is also suitable for those who have significantly misaligned teeth, in which case they may begin with traditional orthodontic treatment and complete the process with Invisalign.
Invisalign involves moving the teeth, and like all orthodontic treatment, it is important that you have healthy teeth and gums, to begin with. Here at Quest Dental Care, we will thoroughly examine your mouth, and any dental issues will be addressed prior to beginning treatment with Invisalign.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign works using clear thermoplastic aligners that can be individually manufactured to fit your teeth accurately and precisely using iTero technology designed by Invisalign themselves. You will undergo a three-dimensional scan, the results of which will be used to create your aligners. The aligners will be designed as a series that will move your teeth gradually by approximately 0.25mm per aligner until you have reached the desired result.
Each of these aligners has to be worn for approximately 22 hours a day for two weeks before you can move on to the next aligner in the series. The aligners can be taken out of your mouth and replaced as necessary; therefore, they are highly convenient and completely discreet when worn.
