When we were growing up, it was normal to see our friends or strangers in the street wearing braces that would straighten their teeth ready for adulthood. Unfortunately, not all of us had that luxury, so there are many of us currently unhappy with our teeth and their misalignment. Wearing braces as an adult is completely normal, but so is feeling insecure about the idea. Invisalign in Ipswich offers a clear aligner alternative to braces that brings about the same result, without the metal brace across our smile.
Who can help?
Here at Quest Dental Care, we want to help you feel happy and confident with your teeth. We believe in quality patient care through communication and understanding, which is exactly what we aim to provide from the second you enter our practice. If the clear aligner alternative sounds appealing to you, then you’re in the right place. We offer Invisalign in Ipswich as a treatment option for misaligned teeth and can’t wait to tell you more.
What are misaligned teeth?
You might be wondering if Invisalign in Ipswich is the right treatment option for you, but you can rest easy knowing that we will recommend the best treatment plan for your unique set of needs. Misaligned teeth can be defined as crooked teeth, overcrowded teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, teeth with gaps in and even open bites. We understand that you and your teeth are completely unique, so we will always assess you on an individual basis and take a detailed dental history before making suggestions. We will also thoroughly examine your teeth and the extent of the misalignment.
What is the process?
The clear aligner process is straightforward and you’ve probably come across something similar in your research. Your initial visit with us will include the thorough analysis that we previously mentioned, including taking images and 3D scans of your teeth. With all of this information, we will be able to confidently decide whether or not this treatment option will be correct for you, before moving forward with a plan. From here, we will create a set of aligners, all slightly altered. The reason for providing you with altered trays is to ensure that every time you swap one, your teeth are continuously moving into their desired position with added pressure. We will be sure to monitor your progress as you make your way through the trays and will make any changes that are neccessary.
What if I don’t like my result?
The great part about this treatment is that we can provide you with a simulation of your future smile. During this time, you will be able to voice your concerns and have your questions answered before moving forward with the plan.
Is aftercare important?
Our clear aligner alternative can take around twelve months from start to finish, during which we will monitor you throughout. After the transformation has finished, we will provide you with a pair of retainers that will keep your teeth in their new position and protect them. Taking care of your teeth is important, and so is wearing your retainer.
