Invisalign: What are the benefits?
There’s a reason why we’re so excited about Invisalign braces. In fact, there’s many reasons. Teeth straightening has always been associated with fixed, traditional braces that are uncomfortable and take a long time to reach their results – but what if there was a better way? We’d like to introduce you to the many benefits of Invisalign invisible braces!
They’re discrete. One of the best things about Invisalign braces is that they’re discrete. They’re nearly invisible, made out of a clear plastic material that fits over your teeth, so nobody need know you’re receiving treatment. Though they’re made of a clear plastic, they’re incredibly strong and will stand the test of biting and chewing with ease. Now you can forgo the all too visible metal braces for teeth straightening and opt for a far less noticeable method.
They’re removable. You can remove your Invisalign braces to eat, brush your teeth, and for the occasional night out. As long as you wear them for the recommended 20 hours a day, you’ll still be on track for your amazing results. Traditional braces often limit your diet, prohibiting you from eating certain foods lest they get stuck in your wires and brackets. With these clear aligners, you can remove them and eat whatever takes your fancy, so there’s no need to miss out on your favourite menu items.
They’re comfortable. Each Invisalign aligner is made specifically for your teeth, so they’re comparatively more comfortable than traditional braces. Invisalign utilises 3D printing technology to create aligners from moulds of your teeth, perfectly shaping your teeth straightening journey. You change your aligners every few weeks, gently guiding your teeth through the changes for maximum comfort. With traditional braces there is a lot more force, discomfort, and even pain, but Invisalign sidesteps all of this.
They’re hassle-free. With Invisalign invisible braces, you don’t need routine appointments to change, cut, or adjust your braces as you do with traditional methods. There is no need for wires and brackets, and no need for maintenance appointments. You simply pick up your next instalment of aligners from our dental office and continue on your teeth straightening journey. Simple as that!
They’re fast. You can achieve your desired results relatively quickly, and much faster than traditional braces, with Invisalign. Traditional braces focus on your mouth function and bite, taking longer to achieve the optimum results. Invisalign, on the other hand, can address bite issues but is particularly effective at straightening your cosmetic smile. This means that your smile can become more uniform in a much shorter period of time, because we’re merely guiding teeth into a different position.
Invisalign is sweeping the dental, orthodontic, and teeth straightening world away with its superior treatment. More and more adults are realising that straightening their teeth wasn’t just limited to their teenage years, and that there are discrete solutions available for their use. At our Nottingham dental practice, we’re proud to offer a free consultation before you commit to any treatment. This way you can ask any questions about Invisalign, we can assess your suitability for treatment, and accurately predict and plan for your results.
