‘Invisible’ braces and aligners are becoming increasingly popular with adults and teens due to their discreet nature, comfort and practicality. Here are the ‘invisible’ treatment options that we offer at Park Lane….
Invisalign are a versatile type of treatment designed to accommodate for the patient’s day-to-day life. Invisalign is a series of aligners, replaced bi-weekly by the patient across a period of between 12-18 months.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is a treatment very much suited to the modern individual, being discreet, comfortable and practical. Here are further reasons why Invisalign is a successful treatment…
- The responsibility falls into the patient’s hands. If you prefer to have control over your treatment, you can! Invisalign simply requires you to replace each alinger every 2 weeks and that they be worn 22 hours of each day. Invisalign also allows you to enjoy your favourite foods, being a removable treatment, whilst fixed metal treatments make it difficult to enjoy foods such as toffee, nuts and sugary foods. These are also detrimental to your desired result as foods that require you to bite down hard can cause your brace’s bands to become loose. Invisalign treatment generally takes less time than traditional fixed braces treatment and is discreet and designed to go unnoticed by those around you, which is probably why it is particularly attractive amongst adults in the workplace as well as celebrities (Tom Cruise, Justin Bieber and Niall Horan). Invisalign is free of all the elements that can make metal-based orthodontics a pain – no need to deal with archwires or annoying, intrusive brackets here!
Incognito is a bespoke fixed braces treatment for more complicated alignment issues and is suitable for adults and children alike. Incognito braces are also a type of lingual braces, designed to go behind your front teeth which makes them an unobtrusive type of treatment as well as an subtle one.
Benefits of Incognito braces:
- Like Invisalign, they go almost totally unnoticed by others since they’re on the inside of your mouth – the difference is, lingual braces are a fixed option whilst Invisalign is a removable treatment. Not only can lingual braces improve the quality of your dental health but they can also help realign your bite.
- Lingual braces is arguably the best treatment of its kind and take significantly longer than other treatments and generally give significantly better results.
- There is no one size fits all when it comes to creating your lingual braces. As they’re a bespoke treatment, each patient’s needs can be catered for by creating exact impressions of their teeth.
This is one of Park Lane’s most cost effective and comfortable treatments. It is a type of lingual brace (fitted behind the teeth like Incognito) featuring components that sit flat against the teeth which means the design is unobtrusive and perfect for day-to-day life.
Like the two treatments mentioned above, 2D treatment is for those who would like to improve their smile but do not want to compromise on appearance.
