Seapoint Clear Aligners

Seapoint Clear Aligners

Seapoint Clear Aligners allow you to brush as normal and to eat whatever you want during treatment. The average treatment time for this is about a year but can be faster where fewer movements are needed. These improvements are not always just cosmetic. Many of these treatments can improve oral problems, such as your bite.

Benefits

Seapoint Clear Aligners gained significant popularity in recent years because of the many advantages it offers over conventional orthodontics. Traditionally, achieving a straighter smile required affixing a system of brackets directly to the outer surface of the teeth, and gradually placing more tension via wires connecting those brackets. Though certainly effective, the metal hardware can cause patients to feel self-conscious about the appearance of their smiles. The most obvious advantage of Invisalign® it that they are virtually invisible to those around you. Instead of metal hardware, Clear Aligners relies on clear plastic mouthpieces to straighten your smile. However, there are other significant benefits that make them an option worth considering.

A Straighter Smile

As with traditional braces, the objective of Clear Aligners treatment is a straighter smile that looks great and is easier to clean. Seapoint Clear Aligners are proven to deliver these results in a wide variety of cases when the patient uses them as directed.

No Food Restrictions

Traditional braces make cleaning your teeth more difficult. The brackets and wires can also become damaged if you hazard to eat hard or sticky foods. Clear Aligner mouthpieces, on the other hand, are removable, allowing the patient to continue enjoying the foods they love, and cleaning their teeth afterwards with no more difficulty than they had before undergoing this orthodontic treatment. Seapoint Clear Aligners should be worn at least 22 hours a day – but that gives you an ample two hours each day to enjoy any foods you choose, and subsequently brush and floss all traces of them from your teeth. 

Comfort

Ask anyone who has worn braces, and they can tell you that metal brackets and wires aren’t exactly the most comfortable materials you can choose to press against the soft tissues of your mouth. Clear Aligners mouthpieces are custom-made from smooth plastic, eliminating this trademark of traditional braces. Anyone who enjoys participating in contact sports such as football and soccer may find Clear Aligners to be an especially attractive choice. That’s because although a variety of injuries are always a risk involved with these activities, damaging the insides of your mouth with a blunt metal edge isn’t one of them.

Effectiveness

Not everyone is a candidate for Seapoint Clear Aligners, but this treatment has been proven to be equally effective as traditional braces in treating a wide variety of conditions, including underbite, overbite, crowding, crossbite and wide spacing.

No Need for a New Retainer

At the end of a period spent wearing traditional braces, patients require a retainer that is worn at night to maintain the refined alignment achieved. This, of course, involves customisation and a considerable cost. With Invisalign®, most patients can simply continue wearing the final mouthpiece in their treatment series as a retainer, eliminating the need to create and acquire additional costly appliances. Depending upon your circumstances, your orthodontist may recommend having a new retainer made.
