The 5 Top Reasons To Choose Invisalign Over Traditional Braces

We all want perfectly straight teeth, but most of us have at least a few teeth that are slightly crooked. The good news is that these problems can be easily fixed to provide you with the smile you’ve always wanted. The problem is, whilst traditional braces provide the solution, they can also be considered unsightly. The good news is, Invisalign clear aligners provide a brilliant, discreet solution:


Invisalign treatment is effective

For problems as simple as a few crooked teeth, Invisalign clear aligners can be every bit as effective as traditional metal braces, leaving you with a great new smile.


They are discreet

They are discreet

Many people are put off teeth straightening treatment as traditional braces are very visible. For people that don’t want to draw attention to their seeking orthodontic treatment, braces don’t help as they are very noticeable, so it’s not surprising that some people choose to let their teeth remain crooked rather than wearing fixed braces.

Invisalign clear aligners are made from clear medical grade plastic and as a result, they are barely visible when compared with metal braces. People can improve their teeth without drawing attention to themselves.


No bulky brackets and wires

Traditional braces use brackets that are fixed to the teeth, and wires that run through them, pulling the teeth into the right position over time. However, brackets and wires are very bulky in the mouth and as a result, can be very uncomfortable. With Invisalign, there are no brackets or wires, so no need to worry about wires sticking into your cheeks.


Invisalign aligners are removable

Whilst traditional braces are fixed onto your teeth throughout treatment, Invisalign can be removed for meal times and when you clean your teeth. This means that you can eat whatever you like without the fear of breaking your braces and cleaning your teeth is much easier. Whilst Invisalign can be removed, it’s important that they are worn for 22 hours a day and are only removed to eat, drink and clean your teeth.

Invisalign are customised especially for you

Digital impressions are made of your teeth and sent to a laboratory. A series of clear aligners are then created specifically for your teeth. Each set of aligners are worn for around 2 weeks, before moving on to the next set. Treatment varies from patient to patient, but usually between 18 to 36 sets of aligners are required, with treatment taking between 9 and 18 months.
