If you need orthodontic treatment and are considering whether to opt for Invisalign braces Manchester or accelerated treatments such as 6 month smiles Manchester, then you might want to read on. In this post we’re going to discuss whether Manchester Invisalign treatment is right for you.
Before we delve into the whys and wherefores of Invisalign, it’s worth explaining a little about this type of orthodontic treatment and how it works. Firstly unlike more conventional forms of brace systems, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic trays, called aligners, which are worn over the teeth. Each tray is different and is individually made to suit the exacting needs of the patient. When worn, each tray gently coaxes the teeth back into a certain position before the subsequent tray/aligner takes over. Aligners are changed every 2-3 weeks until the desired results are achieved.
So let’s get back to the question in hand – Are they right for you? Let’s take a closer look.
One of the more advantageous facts about Manchester Invisalign is that (as the name suggests) it’s virtually invisible. In fact it does away with the conventional bracket and wiring style brace system that most of us are familiar with. This means that from an aesthetics point of view it’s pretty discreet. Therefore if you think you’d feel particularly self conscious about wearing more conventional systems it could be for you. However, do bear in mind that because each aligner has to be specially made, it’s more expensive than most other forms of orthodontic treatment so you might want to factor this into the equation.
Fixed or removable braces
Another point that you might want to take into consideration is that unlike many fixed brace systems such as 6 month smiles, Manchester Invisalign aligners are meant to be fully removable. In fact patients are supposed to remove their aligners when eating and cleaning their teeth. Although being able to easily remove your aligners sounds like the perfect solution, the fact is that in order to deliver the required results, they need to be worn for at least 22 hours a day. This requires a large amount of self discipline and commitment. In other words if you skimp on the process, you won’t get the required results and it’s likely to be a waste of money. Conversely with more conventional fixed braces, they’re usually only removed by the dentist and therefore it takes away the onus to remove them if the wearer is feeling a little uncomfortable, or is going out for the evening and doesn’t want anyone to know they’re having orthodontic treatment.
The type of treatment you need
Do keep in mind that although Invisalign does suit many conditions it isn’t a complete fix solution. Therefore depending upon the severity of your condition you might be best served by a form of orthodontic treatment that offers both cosmetic and structural results. The bottom line is that Invisalign braces Manchester definitely offers a solution, however depending upon your situation, it mightn’t always be the best one for you.
