Straighter teeth and a slimmer waist

Woman having her invisalignOne of the problems of large offices is that it’s always someone’s birthday. It can be hard to lose weight if there is always cake in the office kitchen, or, in jobs where the grateful public express their thanks with chocolate and other sugar-laden goodies. No wonder so many people in the UK are packing a few extra pounds. It’s hard to resist temptation when Nature hard-wired people to chow down once rare sweet fatty stuff to stay alive on the prehistoric savannah. No wonder then, that workers love the digital age’s way to straighten teeth and lose weight at the same time: invisible aligners by Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

In Sutton Coldfield, Invisalign is an innovation in teeth straightening that is as good as invisible and, unlike traditional bracket and wire braces, removable. It is available from reputable dentists such as the Dental Care Partnership. Invisalign in Sutton Coldfield uses 3D printed clear plastic aligners, rather like mouth guards, but only about 0.3 millimetres thick. They snap on over the teeth and are held in place with tiny metal clips on the back teeth. Patients receive a series of 12–48 aligners, depending on their alignment needs, and wear each one for about 2 weeks. Each aligner is one of a series that together incrementally nudge the teeth into alignment.

What’s so great about Invisalign in Sutton Coldfield?

The first reason why Invisalign is so popular is that the aligners are almost invisible, making it possible for people to get their teeth straightened without a continual barrage of stares and personal questions.

The second reason is that Invisalign aligners are removable. Patients have to take them out to eat, and eating is so much easier, there are no dietary restrictions. However, the aligners have to be worn for at least 20 hours a day in order to stick to the alignment schedule. This is enough time to eat 3 times a day and clean the teeth before putting the aligner back. However, it is not enough time to drink endless cups of coffee or tea – the aligners discolour if they are worn for anything but drinking water. People find they can lose weight without really trying over the average treatment time of one year.
