The Growing Popularity of Invisalign During Lockdown
Posted on 4th March 2021 at 14:41
In recent years, orthodontic treatment has become much more attractive to adults, a demographic who previously saw the limited brace options available to them as a deterrent. One particular treatment that has been popular during the lockdown period (thanks to its suitability to remote care) is Invisalign.
This removable aligner system offers flexibility throughout the treatment period and can address a diversity of orthodontic problems, from mild crowding and spacing to complex bite issues. Thanks to the transparent nature of each aligner, your smile can remain bracket and wire-free when you’re on all those Zoom and Skype calls to your friends and colleagues. If you’re considering orthodontic treatment to improve the look and health of your smile, here’s why Invisalign could suit you.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is the leading brand of removable orthodontic transparent aligners. Each aligner is made to measure and changed by the patient every two weeks at home. Treatment time with Invisalign is generally between 9-12 months. Treatment times at Park Dental Care are generally quicker as we offer an accelerated programme of aligner changes.
Why Choose Invisalign?
The freedom and flexibility of Invisalign are particularly attractive to clients during the lockdown period. For treatment to be a success, the aligners must be worn for 22 hours each day, allowing clients a 2-hour window where they’re able to brush and eat as normal. During a time when many of us have been embracing the comforts and joys that food can bring (more than ever!), this freedom has been a real plus for patients.
Invisalign clear aligners are a low maintenance option when it comes to looking after your teeth. Simply take them out to brush and floss like normal and avoid the hassle of food becoming stuck in your brace and jeopardising your oral hygiene. With routine appointments having been on hold for a period of months last year and the fact that there are still currently people who need to shield from Coronavirus, the ease with which clients can look after their teeth day-to-day makes Invisalign the ideal orthodontic treatment for remote care.
Invisalign During Lockdown: Remote Treatment at Park Dental Care
Park Dental Care has been managing more than 100 Invisalign cases. When the pandemic began, we carefully mapped out how we could make it possible for clients to continue their treatment remotely and safely. We’ve found Invisalign has been very well suited to remote care, allowing clients to continue receiving the treatment they need and deserve. Regular video consultations with clients allow us to track their individual progress carefully, address their specific needs and reduce the number of face-to-face appointments.
