Gone are the days of unsightly teeth straightening solutions here at Ace Dental in Camden. Braces conjure up an image of ugly metal tracks for most people. These traditional braces were not only unattractive but often also painful to wear. The metal wires were permanently stuck onto teeth for months, and possibly years at a time, causing the wearer plenty of discomfort and unwanted attention.
Forget train tracks
Invisalign is a totally different type of braces in Camden. Also known as clear braces, they are a modern alternative to the old style of metal braces or ‘train tracks’. Getting your teeth straight may still take some months. However, the good news is that you no longer have to face unsightly metal wires. No more painful permanent metal fixtures that rub holes into your cheeks.
How does Invsialign work?
Innovative 3D printing technology now allows for a brighter, more comfortable way to straighten your teeth using transparent resin trays. These trays are 0.3mm thick, and as the name implies, are transparent. They are created to fit perfectly over your teeth with no uncomfortable parts sticking into your delicate gums or cheeks. What’s more, you may find that these almost invisible braces go totally unnoticed by friends or colleagues. And even though you do need to wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day, you can take them out for an hour or two for a very special occasion.
One of the fantastic things about Invisalign is that the transparent alignment trays are removable. You can take the trays out to enjoy their meals and for flossing and brushing their teeth.
Is Invisalign for me?
Invisalign works wonders for people who have common cosmetic dental alignment problems. This could be minor bite issues, slightly crooked teeth, small gaps, etc. For those who have more severe alignment problems, alternatives will need to be assessed.
