For individuals living with an uneven smile, activities some people take for granted – such as speaking in a meeting at work or socialising with friends – can become a difficult task with a low self-esteem.
To make matters worse, some members of the public may hesitate when it comes to seeking treatment for a crooked smile because they believe wearing braces will make them look worse.
However, the increasing accessibility of cosmetic dentistry means self-conscious patients can undergo procedures to improve the appearance of their teeth without the need for traditional metal-wire braces.
What is Invisalign i7?
Similar to Invisalign aligners, this course of action improves the appearance of teeth and gums through the use of an invisible brace. However, the Invisalign i7 option is specifically designed to achieve minor tooth movements.
Therefore, patients who are unhappy with minor crowding issues, spacing or orthodontic relapse are encouraged to contact their dental practitioner and discuss potential treatments.
How does it work?
Providing up to seven stages of aligners per arch, this course of action can allow patients to enjoy the results within just three months, while focusing on only the front teeth.
The process utilises the same clear aligners as other Invisalign treatments, meaning individuals can take advantage of the fact their brace will be virtually unnoticeable to other members of the public.
While making the most of the speedy results offered by Invisalign i7 products, this course of action includes a ClinCheck treatment plan and SmartForce features – including optimised attachments and power ridge features that will provide a more predictable outcome.
Patients will also be given the chance to switch their braces for Invisalign Lite or Teen options in a bid to ensure they are provided with the best possible results for their pearly whites.
What are the benefits of invisible braces?
While there are countless advantages to wearing invisible braces, the majority of people would argue the main benefit is the fact that they are almost entirely unnoticeable to other people.
This factor, along with the fact they are extremely comfortable to wear, removes any stigma associated with seeking dental treatment during adulthood, while helping wearers to forget they have the braces in their mouth at any particular time.
In addition, individuals who select this option are unlikely to experience the same pain those who opt for metal-wire braces. This is because traditional options use elastic bands to fix the teeth into their new position – which can feel unpleasant.
Furthermore, by allowing patients to remove the aligners during mealtimes and brushing means they do not have to worry about getting food stuck between the appliance and their pearly whites – something that may be embarrassing in a social situation.
This factor also makes it much easier for wearers to maintain an effective oral hygiene routine, as there is less chance of them missing a spot during brushing or flossing.
People with traditional braces often neglect their dental health for this reason, making them vulnerable to bad breath, tooth decay or gum disease in the future.
Additionally, the simple nature of the procedure to fit Invisalign i7 allows members of the public to continue with their everyday lives with little disruption to their career or personal endeavours.
The practice is open 7 days a week from 8am till 11pm. Weekend and late evening Invisalign i7 appointments are available. You can book a free Invisalign i7 consultation by calling 0208 547 9997 or emailing us for further information or to arrange a consultation.
