Invisible Braces and the Latest Trends in Teeth Straightening

As oral health awareness and dental aesthetics have surged in popularity and importance, so too has invisible orthodontics, giving people straighter, healthier teeth in a highly discreet way. Invisible braces and new trends in teeth straightening are a brilliant alternative to metal braces, particularly for adults and teens who may be self-conscious about having orthodontic treatment. We look at the benefits of invisible braces and the latest technological trends shaping orthodontics:

An increased demand for convenient teeth straightening solutions

An increased demand for convenient teeth straightening solutions

Cosmetic dentistry has grown hugely in recent years as people are becoming more mindful of the appearance of their teeth and smiles. Together with this, advancements in healthcare and a rising awareness about the importance of oral health, has made invisible braces and orthodontics in general more popular.

Invisible braces, from hidden lingual aligners to subtle ceramic braces, use advanced computer-aided design (CAD) technology and are custom-made in a lab to precisely fit the wearer. As invisible braces are highly customised, the technology makes the orthodontic process faster and simpler. People who have mild to moderate teeth imperfections are becoming increasingly drawn to these invisible orthodontic solutions which will help improve their smiles in a discreet and convenient way.

As well as CAD technology, breakthrough technological advancements in orthodontics include 3D imaging, electron microscopy, and virtual reality training in labs. This has made it possible to design highly effective and virtually invisible clear aligners such as Invisalign – a treatment which has seen great uptake in the UK.

Invisalign is a clear, removable and comfortable to wear set of aligners that won’t interfere with the wearer’s everyday lifestyle. Made of medical grade plastic the invisible aligners are wafer thin. Along with invisible braces, clear aligners are now able to be accurately customised for improved performance for straightening crooked, gappy or overlapping teeth.
