Invisalign has set the world of orthodontics alight and many people across the world are taking advantage of its magical powers of straightening the teeth in secret. If you long to have a straight smile, but you’re not so keen on wearing visible braces or you’re worried about painful braces, Invisalign could be just what you’ve been waiting for. This innovative invisible system offers an alternative to fixed braces for those who require correction for minor or moderate issues, including crooked teeth and spaces between the teeth. This system works in a different way to more traditional orthodontic treatment, as it employs a series of appliances, rather than an individual brace. Each patient is given a set of bespoke aligners, which are designed to straighten the teeth gradually. The process involves wearing an aligner for two weeks and then swapping it for the next in the sequence. By the time you remove your last aligner, you should have perfectly straight teeth. Invisalign aligners are very popular because they are made from clear plastic, which means that they are virtually undetectable when you smile. This means that there is now a solution for all those people who wanted to have treatment, but were worried about how they would look or what other people would think. Aside from the obvious benefit of invisible treatment, Invisalign aligners are also removable, which gives you more freedom and also means that daily tasks, such as cleaning your teeth and eating, are much easier. In fact, you don’t have to adapt the way you live from day to day at all, as you can simply take your aligners out. Sometimes, wearing braces can increase your risk of developing dental diseases, as it can be hard to keep your teeth clean. However, with Invisalign, you brush your teeth as normal, so you don’t need to worry about harmful bacteria or staining. Invisalign also uses gentle forces and there are no metal bands to adjust or tighten; this means that you can enjoy a simple, pain-free treatment process. Every patient is different, but typically, treatment time is around 12 months.
