Invisalign Leicester is a modern and popular alternative to traditional metal braces for straightening teeth. They are virtually invisible and custom-made to fit each patient’s unique smile. At our dental practice, Smile Care Dental Clinic, we offer clear aligners as a comfortable and convenient option for patients looking to improve their oral health and enhance their appearance.
How do clear aligners work?
Invisalign Leicester works by gently applying pressure to the teeth, gradually moving them into their desired position. The aligners are made of a clear, flexible plastic material that is custom-fitted to each patient’s teeth. They are worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day, with the exception of eating and brushing. Clear aligners are typically worn for about 12-18 months, but the duration of treatment varies depending on the individual case.
The benefits of clear aligners
Clear aligners offer a variety of benefits over traditional metal braces. One of the advantages is that they are virtually invisible, often going unnoticed in public, making them a popular choice among adults and teenagers who are looking to straighten their teeth without the appearance of traditional metal braces. Clear aligners are also considered more comfortable than traditional braces, as they do not have brackets or wires that can irritate the gums and cheeks. Additionally, clear aligners are removable, which allows for easy cleaning of the teeth and gums during treatment.
Clear aligners also have some additional benefits which make them a popular choice.
- Clear aligners are custom-fitted to each patient’s teeth, which allows for a more precise and efficient treatment.
- Clear aligners are often a more cost-effective option than traditional braces.
- Clear aligners are removable, so eating, brushing, and flossing are easier.
Am I a good candidate?
Invisalign Leicester is suitable for most patients, including adults and teenagers. The aligners can be used to treat a variety of dental issues, including crowded or crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, and gaps. However, clear aligners may not be the best option for patients with severe dental issues, such as severe overbite or underbite. In these cases, traditional braces may be more appropriate.
At our dental clinic, we offer a complimentary consultation to determine if clear aligners are the right option for you. Our experienced dentists will examine your teeth and discuss your treatment goals to determine if clear aligners are the best choice for you.
