Gapped, crowded, crooked and misaligned teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Furthermore, crooked and crowded teeth encourage plaque formation which is responsible for gum disease. Even worse, if left untreated, misaligned teeth can be the cause of serious medical conditions like pain and dysfunction of the muscles that move the jaw.
For many years, traditional metal braces used to be the only teeth straightening option available. Recent developments in dentistry mean that a mouthful of metal braces is no longer the only way to have the smile of your dreams.
Clear braces in Essex are quickly becoming the most popular teeth straightening treatment for both teens and adults. Our cosmetic dentists at Simply Teeth are extensively trained in Invisalign, a system of clear, removable braces, which gradually move your teeth into their correct position.
Invisalign clear braces in Essex can correct mild cases of dental misalignment faster and more comfortably than ever. Having your teeth straightened with Invisalign clear braces is a quick treatment. Our dentists at Simply Teeth will take an impression of your teeth and the data will be sent to the Invisalign laboratory for the construction of your custom-made aligners. Thena3D treatment plan will be prepared for you.
Invisalign treatment involves wearing a set of transparent aligners that have to be replaced every two weeks. Each set of aligners move your teeth gradually until they have reached the right position in your mouth. You will be asked to wear the trays at least 20 hours per day.
