What is Invisalign and how does it work?

If the thought of wearing braces for several months or years is off putting, it’s well worth talking to your dentist about Invisalign.

Every few months you’ll swap a custom made aligner, for a new aligner, until you’ve achieved the healthy, straight smile, that you’ve been dreaming of. Best of all unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners aren’t painful to wear and won’t cause cuts on your gums. If you’re interested, book a consultation with your dentist, who’ll be able to talk you through the myriad of benefits of opting for Invisalign over braces.

What are some of the benefits of opting for Invisalign?

The most obvious benefit of opting for Invisalign is that Invisalign is that most people will be unable to tell that you’re using it. As Invisalign aligners are clear and designed to fit on top of your teeth. Another benefit of opting for Invisalign is that you can take your Invisalign aligner out to eat or drink, so you won’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your aligner, or forgoing food such as popcorn or candy. Foods that you’d never be able to eat, whilst wearing braces. Lastly, should you opt for Invisalign you won’t have to visit your dentist as often as you would if you were to opt for braces, which need to be tightened regularly.

Who can benefit from Invisalign?

If you assumed that it was too late to straighten your teeth as an adult, you may be pleased to read that Invisalign works just as well for adults as it does for teens. So whether you’re looking to straighten a couple of teeth which are out of place, or straighten the majority of your teeth, you’ll be able to benefit from Invisalign treatment. Just remember, that the time it will take to straighten your teeth will depend on how crooked your smile is. Generally the fewer teeth you have which need to be pushed into line, the quicker your Invisalign treatment should be. However, even if you have lots of teeth which need realigning, you won’t need to wear Invisalign aligners for as long as braces candidates will be stuck with their braces.

So if you’d love to straighten your teeth and smile for photographs confidently, it’s seriously well worth talking to your dental specialist about Invisalign. Just think, the quicker you book your consultation, the sooner you’ll have the smile of your dreams. So what are you waiting for?
