What Are Invisible Braces?

When it comes to orthodontics, we know that having a discreet treatment really counts. That’s why we offer invisible braces here at our Nottingham dentists, made by a popular brand called Invisalign, which can straighten your teeth practically without anyone else knowing.

In today’s blog, we’ll cover all the great benefits to Invisalign invisible braces, so you can make an informed choice about treating your smile.

What are invisible braces made of?

They’re crafted from a clear acrylic plastic, which makes them comfortable on the smile, and totally transparent, too. Other people will likely not even notice you’re wearing your Invisalign – and your secret’s safe with us! Rest assured that, despite being clear, light and comfy, they’re also very strong. Though, we do caution to store them in their case when not being worn – just in case they get sat on!

Why should I have invisible braces?

There are lots of advantages to choosing Invisalign over other types on the market. For one thing, they’re clear and discreet. We’ve also touched on how comfortable they are to wear – consider, for a moment, fixed braces, which in comparison, use wires, brackets and elastics to align the smile. They’re also competitively priced, though we can offer finance options if cost is a barrier to your treatment. Finally, they can have some positive benefits for your oral health, as correctly aligning the teeth can prevent food and bacteria from building in any gaps and make the smile easier to clean overall.

Can Invisalign invisible braces treat bite problems?

Yes, of course – they’re not simply about gaps and crowding! Overbite, underbite, cross bite and even open bite can all be treated with these clever clear braces, though you’ll need a consultation before any treatment can go ahead (just to check it’s suitable for you).

Can teenagers have invisible braces?

Yes, they can – so it’s no surprise that Invisalign is really popular with teens. It suits their lifestyle, too, as they can be easily popped in and out (as long as you get 20-22 hours’ wear per day). There’s also a special indicator which shows that the clear braces have been worn for the right amount of time, so parents get peace of mind.

What else do I need to know about invisible braces?

Honestly, we could talk all day about clear braces and their many benefits. But, we’d just like to add that, if you still feel self-conscious about orthodontic treatment, Invisalign is actually a popular choice amongst celebrities.
