Because teeth often grow into crooked positions or become overlapped and crowded over time, many dental patients feel self-conscious about the appearance of their natural smile.
Traditionally the best solution for realigning crooked teeth has been the use of wire braces, however, a breakthrough in modern dental technology and techniques has seen the development of Clear Aligners, a new way to straighten teeth that is more comfortable and far less obtrusive than dental braces.
Clear Aligners are an almost invisible appliance (much like a gum shield) that are moulded to meet the exact needs of your dental profile and provide a highly effective method of straightening teeth that is barely visible to the naked eye.
Here at Oldham Orthodontic, we offer one of the most popular clear aligners treatments on the market, Invisalign:
Invisalign has been used to successfully treat more than 5 million patients and has gained recognition as the perfect solution for treating crooked teeth and closing unwanted gaps between the teeth.
This state-of-the-art treatment works by applying a series of clear, removable, custom-made plastic aligners that gradually straighten the teeth and correct issues with growth and positioning. Invisalign treatment is particularly popular as the procedure usually takes half the time of traditional orthodontic methods and offers excellent results for patients.
Invisalign treatment is also popular because it offers an increased level of comfort for patients as the aligners can be easily removed when required. This makes brushing and cleaning teeth far easier than when using traditional wire braces and means that speech is not impaired during treatment.
These benefits have seen the use of the Invisalign system grow rapidly over the past decade as it has made orthodontic treatment far more appealing to adults worried about their teeth but uncomfortable with the prospect of wearing traditional metal ‘train-track’ braces.
