With International Literacy Day fast approaching, now is the perfect time to broaden your horizons, develop new interests and find out about new things. If you are interested in dentistry or you are thinking about having dental treatment, why not take the opportunity to read up on dental procedures and see what is new in the ever-changing world of dentistry.
If you’re familiar with new orthodontic treatments, you may have heard of Invisalign: this is an amazing treatment which uses invisible removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into the desired position. Invisalign provides a solution to many of the problems commonly associated with braces. The aligners are removable, so you can brush your teeth easily and eat and drink without worrying about food getting stuck in the brackets, and they are made from clear plastic, which means that they are virtually invisible to other people.
Invisalign Lite is a member of the Invisalign family, and is designed for patients with minor orthodontic problems and issues affecting the front teeth. Invisalign Lite works in exactly the same way as Invisalign, but there are fewer aligners.
Who is Invisalign Lite good for?
If you have minor crowding, spacing or slightly misaligned teeth, and you want to improve the aesthetics of your smile without having to wear highly visible or fixed braces, Invisalign Lite may be the perfect solution. The aligners, which are custom-made for the individual, are removable and invisible, meaning that you can have the smile of your dreams without anyone else even being aware that you are wearing braces. Invisalign Lite works quickly and offers great flexibility, as you can take the aligners out to brush your teeth and eat. There is also the option to remove the aligners for special occasions when you want to look your best. For more information contact Sparkle Dental Boutique near to Ealing.

When you look back to your former years studying at secondary school, there must be some memories which all of us have. The head teacher who was far too stern for many of our likings, a fellow student who we all had an unbearable crush on and the one schoolmate who had braces on their teeth. But not just any braces.
Resembling a concoction which had been made out of train tracks that locomotives drive ferociously on, the person normally wearing the braces wasn’t always the most confident they could be. This might have had a psychological effect on them as they did not know exactly what to think of their fellow students’ perceptions. This could have or is currently happening to those attending Hounslow schools. So if you find that you are in this dental predicament, there is a way forward if your teeth are in such a horrific condition that you need professional assistance but were afraid that only metallic braces would be the only way forward for you.
Can you tell me about Invisalign Lite braces?
Good question that and one which many do not know the answer to. Used to correct minor or moderate dental issues, Invisalign Lite braces are literally invisible which requires its wearer to having a series of ten plastic yet clear aligners in order to assist their teeth in obtaining that naturally straight smile. One of the main positives of Invisalign Lite is that the braces can be taken out when you eat, attending a social meeting at Hounslow Village Hall or even when brushing your teeth.
How long before I see results?
Treatment normally takes on average six months for the differences to become apparent. This is an approximate time for how long it will take but with the gentle pressure which Invisalign Lite applies it might require a shorter period than this.
