Want to know more about Invisalign? Your top 5 FAQs answered by Dee Kay Dental

In the age of modern orthodontics, there are many alternatives to traditional, metal aligners. Great news if you are an adult with a slightly crooked smile!

As every area of dentistry evolves, it is now possible for adults who have crooked or misaligned teeth to have them straightened using either clear or invisible braces. Of course, the obvious advantage to this is that these options are more visually discreet than metal aligners, but as many options are also removable, they fit around your life conveniently.

Sounds too good to be true? Unfortunately, many patients worry that if they opt for clear or invisible braces, there will be some sort of catch; will they be uncomfortable to wear? Will they require more frequent trips to the dentist to be straightened?

Renowned for its ease of use, its discretion and its comfort, this brace can straighten your teeth quickly and without fuss, allowing you to get the straighter smile you have always wanted. Perfect!

Are you still unsure if Invisalign in Sheffield sounds too good to be true? Read on to learn the answers to the top 5 FAQs about this invisible aligner.

Am I suitable for this brace?

Probably! Invisalign in Sheffield is suitable for adults and teenagers who have pronounced gaps, overcrowding, misalignment or bite issues.

Provided that your oral hygiene is also given the green light by our team, it is likely that you will be suitable for this invisible brace.

Is it uncomfortable?

Having anything new attached to your teeth is going to take some getting used to initially.

However, while metal braces are renowned for being bulky and hurting the inner cheeks, invisible braces are made from a thin, clear plastic and are designed with comfort in mind. Also, as this brace does not require tightening, there will be no discomfort after you visit us for a check-up!

How often will I need to change the aligners?

Depending on your unique clinical presentation, you may be required to change your tray or aligner as frequently as every 2 weeks.

One way to identify if you need to move on to the next aligner is to assess if your current one feels loose or wobbly; if you are not sure, contact our team for advice.

How long will the treatment take to complete?

Once again, this will depend on the severity of the condition being treated.

On average, however, treatment with this invisible aligner takes around 6 months to complete, but may be shorter depending on the degree of realignment involved.

Isn’t it really expensive?

When you come to Dee Kay Dental for adult orthodontics or any other cosmetic based treatments, we will be able to offer suitable patients financing options to help you spread the cost. Breaking that overall fee down into affordable, monthly chunks, all you will have to worry about is smiling! Perfect!
