There are 2 things that put people off getting their teeth straightened. Here at Clapham South Dental Centre, time and time again we hear that our patients would love to get their teeth aligned, if only no one could see their braces and they wouldn’t have to go through all that hassle of cleaning carefully round brackets to remove food.
These are valid reasons to avoid treatment, especially for adults with busy lives and careers that require them to look professional at all times. But, having said that, having wonky teeth is becoming less acceptable with each passing year, with more pressure to have great teeth than ever before.
That’s why at Clapham South Dental Centre, we love that look on people’s faces when they find out there is such a thing as invisible braces in Clapham.
Invisible braces in Clapham not only can’t be seen by anyone but the closest observer, you can also take them out for eating and cleaning.
With invisible braces in Clapham, there are no more excuses for not getting your teeth straightened.
Here’s how they work:
All push, no pull
Invisible braces in Clapham look like ultra-thin mouth guards. The difference is that inside each aligner are precision placed pressure points that press on the teeth to gently nudge them along the path to alignment. You receive a series of aligners and wear them, from the first to the last, for a week to 10 days. You will know when to change to the next one because the feeling that they don’t fit will have worn off.
Easy eating and cleaning
Every time you want to consume anything other than plain water, you simply take out your aligners, store them in their carry case, eat and drink, clean your teeth and the aligners and put them back in. Easy.
Treatment times vary, but the average length is a year. Everyone has to wear a retainer afterwards to keep the teeth in place while the newly formed bone settles down and hardens up.
