Invisalign in Ipswich can be quite a mouthful, but so can teeth that are misaligned. The worst part about having misaligned teeth is that no matter how well you take care of your teeth, how rigorous your oral hygiene routine is, it is very unlikely that your teeth will return to the straightened smile you deserve. Here at Quest Dental Care, we want the best for you as our patient. We put you at the heart of every decision we make, keeping you informed about your treatment and answer any of your concerns. Thanks to Invisalign in Ipswich, it is now possible to straighten your teeth with invisible aligners, allowing you to go about your day without anyone knowing.
In this short article, a member of our team will talk to you about Invisalign in Ipswich and how the process works, as well as the benefits that come with it.
Are you suitable?
The term ‘misaligned’ can be pretty broad when it comes to teeth, so if you’re not sure that you’re suitable for this treatment, we understand. If you have crooked teeth or teeth that are outside of the rest, we can help! We can also help if you have an overbite, underbite, crossbite, gaps between your teeth and overcrowded teeth. We want to make sure that you have all your questions answered and concerns squashed before your initial appointment, so please ask us anything you might be worried about! You can always describe your teeth to us so we can give you a general idea of whether or not the invisible aligners are a good idea, or come in for a consultation.
How it works
Before explaining the process itself, we want to let you know that the average time for this treatment can be up to 12 months, but results may be seen much sooner! We only recommend removing your aligners to brush your teeth and clean the tray, so make sure you’re able to keep them in for most hours of the day. The process itself, however, is pretty straightforward. The first stage includes a consultation, where we will take a detailed dental history and take a look at your mouth. This is your chance to ask us any questions! We will then take moulds of your mouth and your trays will be made. Next, you’ll come to us for your first fitting and be sent home with multiple different trays. We’ll give you guidance on when to switch the aligners out, which will help to continuously move your teeth into your desired position. Please let us know if there are any problems and attend your follow up appointments!
The benefits of the clear aligners speak for themselves. As they are clear, you don’t have to worry about anyone knowing, as you would with metal braces. You also don’t have to worry about having any metal catching on your gums and causing discomfort. You can eat and drink whatever you want with the aligners, so you don’t have to go about changing your lifestyle. Finally, the aligners are completely removable, making it easy to keep on top of your hygiene.
