One of the main drawbacks of traditional fixed braces is their visibility. While they produce good results, many of our patients choose not to go for this treatment for fear of looking unattractive and ruining their smile for months on end. Fortunately, for your braces in Kent, Invisalign can provide the perfect solution.
Invisalign treatment consists of using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every 2 weeks for the next in a set of custom-made aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move gradually, week by week,until they have reached their final straightened positions.
At Staplehurst Dental, we will even include a free professional teeth whitening treatment worth £350 with any of our Invisalign treatments.
Teenagers and braces go hand in hand. For many teens, having braces is part of those early formative teenage years. While traditional fixed braces treatment is effective and important for your teenager’s oral health, it can come during a stage in life when teenagers become self-conscious and having to wear braces doesn’t help. Fortunately, Invisalign Teen braces in Kent can help, as they work in conspicuously.
The clear, Invisalign Teen plastic aligners fit over the upper and lower teeth, like a small mouth guard and gently work to move teeth into position. They take into consideration the growth and development of teenage teeth and jaws, so you can rest assured of a result that suits your teenager’s facial shape.
The main difference between Invisalign and Invisalign Teen is that the teen version has a blue wear indicator. Invisalign clear braces in Kent ideally need to be worn for 20-22 hours a day. However we are aware that teeth straightening treatment may not be your teenager’s priority. The blue indicator will gradually change to clear as your teenager wears the aligners, so you can see if they are wearing them for as long as they need to be for the best results.
Teenagers will receive a new set of aligners every 2 to 3 weeks. Their treatment plan also includes6 spare sets just in case they live up to the teenager stereotype and lose them!
