There’s family, work, social life and sport to get on with – do you have time for orthodontic treatment as well?
With Invisalign you can get on with life while your teeth are straightened – you need fewer appointments and it’s generally faster than braces. Your diet can stay the same, you just need to clean your teeth after meals and active sports and travel don’t pose any issues.
Invisalign not getting in the way of life
You lead a busy life – out early for bootcamp before rushing to work or up early to get the family sorted before a hectic day. There are friends to meet with for a coffee or drink, date night with your partner, or you’re out socialising every week.
You’re too busy to let your orthodontic treatment get in the way.
Invisalign can straighten your teeth while you’re enjoying life and nobody need know you’re having work done.
Can Invisalign be a part of my busy life?
One of the many advantages of Invisalign is that you only need to see your National Dental Care practitioner every six to eight weeks during your treatment program. Once treatment begins, you are given several sets of retainers which you change every two weeks or so. You’re not relying on specialist adjustments to braces so that’s a great timesaver.
Your National Dental Care practitioner will check if you’re suited to Invisalign treatment for your particular orthodontic needs. Then your practitioner will take the scans and/or impressions of your mouth to allow your unique aligner sets to be made.
Your dentist you will show you how to insert and remove your aligners; and how to care for them and your teeth.
How long does Invisalign take to work?
Invisalign takes between six and 18 months, depending on your particular orthodontic needs. Your National Dental Care practitioner will discuss your length of treatment before your program begins. You will also be able to see how your teeth will look at the end of the program, through a computer simulation.
You need to wear your aligners around 22 hours a day for optimum results. You only need to remove them for meals and drinks (other than plain water) and clean teeth and aligners after – no need to alter what you like to eat.
Invisalign straightens your teeth without getting in the way of your life.
Home and away with Invisalign
Once you’ve got your teeth-cleaning routine down and a travel set in your handbag, it’s business as usual. Cleaning only takes a few minutes after meals and you are back enjoying your day or night.
If you enjoy playing sport or going to the gym your aligners carry on working while you’re working out.
If a holiday is on the horizon, you can discuss with your National Dental Care practitioner which sets of aligners you’ll need while you’re away. Just pack your dental care kit in your carry-on bag and you’re ready for a fabulous time.
