At Meadowbank Dental, all that we really want is to see each of our patients happy. For a number of years now, we have been providing the residents of Edinburgh with a range of dentistry options, and during that time we have noticed many different trends and fads come and go. What we have noticed remains consistently, and continues to grow over the years, is the importance and value that is placed behind having a bright and healthy looking smile. Over recent years, interest in cosmetic procedures such as Invisalign in Edinburgh have become massively popular, and we could not be more happy to be improving the smile of so many patients of all ages.
What is Invisalign?
Although many new patients are seeking out Invisalign in Edinburgh from us here at Meadowbank Dental, many are still completely in the dark as to what Invisalign is, and how it could benefit them. Each year, countless adults across the country put off getting vitally needed orthodontic work because they are afraid of how the treatment may impact the way they look. Whilst having teeth which are crooked or misaligned can be the cause of some embarrassment or self-consciousness, most adults who have such teeth would prefer to keep them in favour of metallic braces. Thankfully however, here at Meadowbank we have an ideal solution. Through Invisalign in Edinburgh, patients of all ages can achieve a straighter looking smile with ease.
How does Inviaslign work
You may wonder how such a thing may be possible, but it is actually a method of orthodontic alignment which has been in development for quite some time. Conventional orthodontics – that is to say fused, traditional braces – work by using a connecting wire to apply tension to brackets which are fixed to the front of a patient’s teeth. Over time, the tension in the wire moves the patient’s teeth into their desired shaping. The Invisalign method however, offers a completely different approach. It does not involve any metal wires, or require anything to be fused to the front of a patient’s teeth, as it consists entirely of a plastic, removable, transparent retainer. This retainer is formed out of a specialised dental plastic called SmartTrack, and has built in pressure points within its structure. These pressure points shift the patient’s teeth by applying pressure to the specific teeth which need to be moved. Over the duration of treatment, the patient’s teeth will eventually all be shifted into their desired position and the patient can enjoy a straighter looking, healthier smile.
