Everyone wants to have healthy teeth and gums, as having high-quality oral health and hygiene standards are always a sign that someone takes good care of themselves and that they possibly enjoy a high standard of health throughout their body. The mouth should be seen as the gateway to the rest of the human body, as we use it to consume food that gives the body the energy it needs to function. Unfortunately, the mouth is also one-way germs can enter the body and cause illness and infections, making it vital that people practice a good oral hygiene regime to minimise the risks from such negative influences on the body.
For people with misaligned teeth, the practising of a high-quality oral health and hygiene routine can prove difficult, due to the teeth being hard to navigate with a toothbrush. There is still a large number of adults living in the UK with problems that are linked to misaligned teeth when there is no need for them to do so.
Invisalign, London, is a tooth alignment treatment that is aimed at adults who are seeking a discreet way to receive the treatment they may feel they need and want.
Discretion is the keyword here
Many of the adults living in the UK with misaligned teeth may have been offered treatment earlier in life, normally in their teenage years, but decided not to engage with the treatment for their own very personal reasons. This may then have led them to believe that their opportunity to receive has passed them by, this need not be the case.
One of the main concerns about tooth alignment treatment that many adults have is that they wish to have this kind of treatment in a way that is discrete, Invisalign can give the patient’s the discretion they want while going through their tooth alignment treatment due to the materials the aligner is made from.
The aligner used in this treatment is created by placing two clear pieces of strong and durable plastic together, that is then moulded to suit the patient’s individual needs. Once the aligner is in place in the patient’s mind it becomes practically invisible to the eyes of other people, this allows a person to receive treatment in a way that feels comfortable to them, on every level. This means that there is finally an aligner on the dental market that addresses the main concern of the patient directly, with the hope of achieving a greater level of engagement with tooth alignment treatment.
Attending a consultation
It is important for any patient considering tooth alignment treatment to attend a consultation with their dentist or orthodontist to have their needs fully assessed. At this appointment, the patient’s teeth can be fully examined and x-rays or scans can be taken that will help in the creation of the aligners to be used in the treatment process.
The dental professional can also take any patient considering tooth alignment treatment through the process and make them aware of all options available to them, allowing them to make a fully informed decision about any treatment before agreeing to go ahead.
