3 Things You Must Know Before Trying Invisalign

When it comes to choosing braces, it’s important to find an option that fits in with your lifestyle and which won’t affect your confidence or make you feel self-conscious. There are lots of reasons why we think Invisalign makes a good choice for many of our patients, but in this post, we’ll highlight just 3. Read on to find out more…

1. Predictable results

With any kind of treatment, you want to trust in good, measurable results. Invisalign takes this a step further, creating bespoke 3D imagery to illustrate every stage of your teeth-straightening journey and expectations at the end. Something to bear in mind, however, is that there may be a refinement period, should you need more aligners than estimated during your treatment. 

2. Flexes round you

There are lots of reasons Invisalign is popular – and not just because they are invisible braces. They’re also removable, with no wires and trays, and only need to be worn for 20-22 hours a day. Because of being removable, you’ll be able to eat and drink what you like, when you like – as long as you’re wearing them for the recommended time overall. (Be warned that eating and drinking while wearing your aligners can cause them to become stained or even cracked and broken).  

3. Improves your oral health

Depending on what you’re looking to treat, having Invisalign brace treatment could improve your oral health over time. Why? Because if your teeth are crooked, crowded or gappy, they may be hard to keep clean or could trap food and bacteria between them. Straightening your teeth out can make them easier to clean. 

Of course, there are lots of other fantastic reasons to try Invisalign besides the ones we’ve listed. These include:

– Easier to care for than traditional wire-and-metal braces
– Removable for playing sports or wind instruments
– Boosted self-esteem and confidence
– Recommended for most ages
– Few risks and limitations (see our earlier post for details)
– Results you can visualise
