Once a decision has been made to use Smile TRU Dr Valentina Daskalovic at Knightsbridge Dentist will take impressions of your teeth. The position of each tooth is considered by our technicians who will decide how teeth will be aligned to give a pleasing aesthetic result and they will construct the series of positioners and aligners for your tooth straightening treatment.
These positioners place gentle forces on to your teeth and so they are very comfortable and almost invisible for others to see. They can affect your speech for a short while but usually after 48 hours of wear you have become accustomed to them.
The positioners can be removed but we advise you wear them as much as possible, at least 20 hours a day. We do recommend you remove them when eating.
The Smile TRU system does suit patients who are more in the public eye and who may want to be able to remove their aligners at key points during their working day.
