At Staplehurst Dental in Kent, we offer a range of discreet teeth straightening solutions so that you can achieve a set of straight teeth without a mouthful of metal. One of our most popular options is Invisalign. This clear braces system uses a series of clear aligners to straighten your teeth out inconspicuously. Let’s take a closer look at what this treatment involves.
Invisalign is faster
One of the things that people about find surprising about Invisalign is that it works more quickly than they expected – usually the treatment is complete between 6 months to a year. With Invisalign, you also spend less time at the dentist, because you change your own aligners at home. You still need to visit us from time to time, but that is just to make sure that your braces in Kent are working as they should.
Invisalign is affordable
Most of the time, Invisalign will cost no more than traditional fixed braces. At our practice, we can even offer 0% finance plans to evenly spread the cost of your braces in Kent. So, if you are concerned about the expense, you have one less thing to worry about.
Invisalign is nearly invisible
One of the things that our patients dislike most about metal braces is their appearance. Invisalign braces work to correct your dental issues, while ensuring that you will not be afraid to smile during your treatment. Unless someone is looking very closely, they will probably not even know that you are wearing braces at all.
Invisalign and oral hygiene
Another issue that people have with traditional fixed metal braces is that they can trap food debris. This makes it hard to maintain adequate oral hygiene. It also can mean that people have to adjust their diet, missing out on some of the foods that they enjoy. With Invisalign, you can take out your aligners to eat, clean and floss your teeth.
Will they work for me?
If you are a candidate for traditional braces, chances are you are also a candidate for Invisalign braces in Kent. However, some severe conditions will respond more effectively to treatment using metal braces. Our dentist will evaluate your dental issues so you get the most appropriate treatment.
