The benefits of Invisalign

When we think of braces, we automatically think of the clunky, metal braces that have long been the traditional form of straightening crooked teeth during your teenage years. However, in recent years our Loughborough dental practice have seen a new solution come to light in the form of Invisalign. As one of the most renowned manufacturers of clear braces, Invisalign specialise in teeth straightening solutions that are not only comparatively more comfortable than traditional braces but also much nicer on the eye. In this post, we will outline some of the great benefits of Invisalign clear braces.

How long does the treatment take?

One of the benefits of Invisalign could 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. These aren’t an uninterrupted few years, however, as readjustments will need to be carried out by your Loughborough dentist. Teens are known to shy away from braces because they don’t want to still be receiving treatment as they near going to university, wanting straight teeth but not wanting years of uncomfortable commitment to achieve them.

Invisalign, on the other hand, can address bite issues but is particularly effective at straightening your crooked smile. This means that your smile can become more uniform in a much shorter period because we’re merely guiding teeth into a different position. Not only does Invisalign in Loughborough improve the alignment of your smile, but it also corrects bite issues.

Is Invisalign comfortable to wear?

One of the most commonly known attributes of braces is the pain and discomfort they cause due to their metal brackets, which relentlessly pull and tug on teeth to force them into a more aligned position. Through glued-down brackets and wires, they begin their rather harsh treatment of your treatment almost from day one. Even your mouth’s soft tissues suffer, with the wires and brackets brushing against them and irritating them. Comparatively, Invisalign is far more comfortable than traditional braces because they use very gradual forces to guide your teeth into the set every few weeks, ushering them into position at a pace to suit you rather than stubbornly pushing and pulling like braces.

Are they removable?

Metal braces are fused to your teeth using dental glue which may limit your diet choices and sometimes force you to cut out your favourite foods.

For example, chewy foods like toffee get stuck in your braces and put them at risk of breaking, but also innocuous foods can get stuck in them and look lumpy. Invisalign, on the other hand, is removable! You can take them out to eat, brush your teeth, and even keep them out for the occasional social event, as long as you wear them for around 22 hours a day, your treatment journey won’t be interrupted along with your social life!
