Do Invisible Braces Work

January, the month when change is in the air. After over indulgence over the festive period, now is the opportunity for those looking for a little self improvement begin to take action. Joining gyms, eating healthy and preparing for the summer is the thought for many, now though more and more people are looking to take measures of improving one of those most primary features we have to offer. Yes that’s right, our teeth. How is this achieved you ask? Answer, with invisible braces.

 

What Are Invisible Braces?

Ever wondered how A-List celebrities achieve those award winning smiles but never seem to go through the harsh realities of having grid like fixtures attached to the front of their teeth? Well this is achieved through invisible braces. Attached to the back surface of your teeth they don’t encrypt your speech and appear out of sight of those you come into contact with. So whilst you know you’re undergoing a secret transformation no one will have a clue.

 

But Do They Work?

With any new technological advances, people can be unsure whether or not they actually have the same effect on the teeth compared to that of more traditional forms of teeth straightening devices. The added advantage invisible braces has though is that they come part of a group of procedures and technological advances aimed at giving the user a faster and much improved finish. Using a variety of X-Ray systems and software, dentists can design comfortable and unique braces designed to fit only your dental structure. So whereas before you would have been fitted with a generic brace, now you have one totally unique to the structure of your mouth.

 

Popular Choices

Not seen too often in the past with dental braces, now there is the luxury of choice on the market. As discussed previously with invisible attachments, there is also the option for clear aligners for mild cases. Clear aligners are designed and made to fit over your teeth like a mouth guard. Again using X-Ray systems in synergy with dedicated software, aligners are designed to change along with your teeth. The software used will forecast the structure of your teeth at varying stages of treatment, this meaning every 3-4 weeks you will be issued with a new aligner until your teeth have straightened.

 

An Ever Growing Trend

Issues surrounding the teeth can cause many insecurities for people up and down the country and with the added benefits of such discreteness, there is no wonder why many more people are choosing to head down this route. Obviously having traditional forms of braces can still cause embarrassment and discomfort for many, but with such an individual service dedicated solely to the individual, this form of cosmetic improvement will rapidly grow.
