If stealth, covert operations, and subterfuge sound up your street, then you don’t need to join MI5, start climbing cliffs or drive fast cars like Tom Cruise. All you need is a misaligned smile and Invisalign Clapham! For mild to moderate alignment cases, Invisalign can be used to realign your smile in as little as 6 to 18 months, and nobody else should know how you are achieving your results since Invisalign is virtually invisible when worn. Invisalign is suitable for patients with a full set of adult teeth, and some dental practices also offer ranges that are specifically designed for teenagers, Invisalign Teen.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign consists of clear aligners and these must be worn over the teeth like a streamlined version of a gumshield. The aligners apply pressure to the teeth to push them into the desired positions over some time. You will need to change your aligners every couple of weeks, and your dentist should provide you with enough aligners to use for six weeks before a checkup. Each aligner will apply a varying amount of pressure, but you feel very comfortable, and the new pressure should only take a day or two to get used to.
Reasons to choose Invisalign
If you are concerned about people noticing an appliance in your mouth, then you should feel more confident and at ease with Invisalign as the aligners will be virtually invisible as they are made of clear plastic. This can be beneficial if you are a young person heading to school and worried about your image or if you are an adult heading into the boardroom and worried about your image! However, the virtually invisible aligners are not the only reason to choose Invisalign.
Invisalign’s aligners are also really convenient as they may be removed for up to 2 hours a day, allowing you to brush your teeth properly as they won’t be in your mouth, hindering your efforts. You will also be able to remove the aligners before mealtimes or other activities, such as training for your new MI5 role! Invisalign should also be comfortable to wear as the aligners will be custom-made for your mouth with precision.
Dentists offering this treatment should have an iTero digital scanner that will get the measurements of your mouth. They will then have the aligners manufactured bespoke in the Invisalign laboratories. From this scan, they can also generate a 3D animation of how great your smile will be at the end of the treatment so that you can visualise what the results are going to be before you’ve started your journey, and your message will not self-destruct either!
To find out whether Invisalign is the right treatment for you, you will first need to research dental clinics that offer this treatment and then book an initial consultation to discuss your concerns about your smile. The dental team will be able to examine you and explain what the treatment options are for your specific needs. If you are offered Invisalign and decide to go ahead with it, you can begin your own covert operation and become a secret smile agent (unless you decide to tell everyone about your treatment because you want them to know about it; of course, the choice is yours!).
