Stealth Straightening with Invisible Braces

However, there are still plenty of introverts who want to keep their private lives private and do not welcome prurient interest in their lives, especially if the subject involves their health in some way. To them, the introduction of invisible braces in Barnsley has been an absolute godsend.

Invisible Braces

Invisible braces in Barnsley are available from various dentists, some, such as PDC Dental, are platinum providers of the very popular Invisalign system. Being an Invisalign platinum provider means that the dentist has amassed a wealth of experience in supplying this alignment system.

Invisalign is not like other ways of straightening misaligned teeth. Rather than brackets and wires, it features transparent plastic resin trays. They look like mouth guards and fit over the teeth. Once snapped into place, the super-thin aligners hug the teeth so closely thin that it’s almost impossible to see them.

The aligners are created from detailed digital measurements taken with a handheld scanner inside the mouth. The Invisalign laboratory in the USA receives these and uses them to calculate how the teeth need to move to become beautifully aligned. The laboratory makes a series of aligners. Each aligner represents a step along the way from the current position of the teeth to their correctly aligned position. The aligners contain carefully placed pressure points that gently nudge the teeth along the path to alignment.

Patients need to wear each tray for about two weeks before moving on to the next one. The number of aligners required very much depends on each individual case.

In Barnsley, invisible braces have other advantages. As well as being almost unnoticeable, they are removable. This means that they are easy to clean, and so are the teeth. Just take it out in the morning to clean the teeth, and do the same at night, cleaning the aligner too.

Also, if people would very much prefer no one to see they are wearing aligners, perhaps for a super-special event like a wedding, a job interview, or a highly important business meeting, then they can be taken out.
