Why SW London area patients should consider improving teeth alignment

Dr. Ilze van Der Merwe of SW London encourages patients to consider realigning their teeth when they are not properly positioned. It is not uncommon for patients to deal with misalignment of the teeth, not everyone has a perfect smile. Thankfully, patients have a myriad of options when it comes to smile correction and teeth alignment including orthodontics. However, the idea of traditional orthodontics with metal brackets and wires glued to the teeth are often enough to make patients want to avoid improving their smile altogether. They think of these uncomfortable, unsightly treatments and are concerned about the appearance of their smile during treatment. Thanks to continued advances, patients can now achieve better alignment without traditional braces.

Invisalign is also known as clear braces or "aligner therapy." Clear, medical-grade plastic trays are fabricated and used to cover the dental arch and push the teeth into better positions. Dr. Ilze van Der Merwe of Gentle Dental Putney encourages his patients to consider this alternative as it has many advantages over traditional braces. Invisalign aligner trays are:
  • Easy to place and remove from the smile
  • Brushing and flossing the teeth is easier
  • Monitored by a dentist patients already know and trust, instead of a specialist
  • Discreet and difficult for other people to notice when patients wear them
  • Comfortable, without metal brackets and wires poking the inside of the mouth
  • Many patients have less pain and discomfort than they would experience with traditional braces
