What do you think of when somebody mentions the word brace to you? Do you envision bulky metal train-tracks? If so we bring good news this festive season. With Invisalign, we can offer discreet straightening, giving you the opportunity to undergo treatment without anyone else even knowing that you’ve got a brace.
What is Invisalign and how does it work?
Invisalign is a discreet tooth straightening system, which is an incredibly popular choice for orthodontic patients. Invisalign is unlike other systems because it uses a series of devices, which work in a set order to reposition the teeth. Each transparent aligner is slightly different to encourage tooth movement and every set of aligners is customised for the individual patient. Invisalign treatment involves wearing an aligner for 2 weeks at a time and then swapping the brace for the next appliance in the series. For optimum results, we recommend wearing your Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours per day.
The advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign is very popular for many reasons. Most people sign up for Invisalign treatment due to the discreet aesthetics. Many people don’t want to wear a visible brace and Invisalign caters for patients searching for invisible options. Invisalign treatment is also convenient, as you can take the aligners out when you eat and clean your teeth. This makes it easier to stay on top of dental hygiene and it also eliminates anxiety related to eating in public. Invisalign aligners also use the latest technology to move the teeth gently and many people consider them more comfortable option than traditional fixed braces.
