5 Reasons To Consider Straightening Your Teeth With Invisalign Clear Braces

November 3, 2021

There are many reasons as to why Invisalign Clear Braces have been rising in popularity in recent years amongst adults and teenagers. Not only does Invisalign streamline the entire orthodontic process but they also provide patients with a much more enjoyable experience. Gone are the days of having to wear unsightly bulky and uncomfortable braces, instead these days you can receive your desired results without impacting your looks.

With Invisalign Clear Braces and the help of reputable professionals, such as our team here at SmileHub, we can provide you with an inconspicuous way of straightening your teeth that takes every factor into consideration. Unlike DIY teeth straightening brands which can leave you in discomfort, with ineffective results. Invisalign is FDA approved system provided by our highly trained team to offer you an exceptional service from beginning to end. We pride ourselves on providing clients with a complete smile makeover, by aligning your teeth and leaving you feeling healthy and confident and have 5*reviews and before and after photos to prove it.

Invisalign is commonly used to treat a variety of orthodontic issues such as:

  • Teeth overcrowding
  • Rotated teeth
  • Under-bite, over-bite, cross-bite and open-bite
  • Gaps between teeth

How do Invisalign Clear Braces work?

The Invisalign Clear Braces help to realign teeth to achieve a straighter smile. The aligners have become an increasingly popular choice for adults instead of traditional braces. One of the major benefits of choosing Invisalign aligners is that they are tailor-made to your teeth using innovative and technologically advanced software to ensure that the braces are comfortable, smooth and durable to wear.

Typically, DIY postal teeth straightening kits leave patients left to carry out their own orthodontic treatment. This can be problematic, as often or not these treatments are not monitored by anyone leaving the patient to manage their own care. The aligners tend to fit poorly, leaving patients uncomfortable and resulting poor results.

Invisalign, on the other hand, uses the latest patented technology to ensure that the treatment is not only successful but comfortable too. Their Clear Braces are not crafted from regular plastic, but instead are designed using the patented technology which enables our dental experts to design and create bespoke aligners that you can wear and that work . Software such as iTero enables patients to view the predicted results of the treatment before it even starts. Since Invisalign has been around, 10,000,000 people globally have benefited from its innovative approach to straightening teeth.

During the course of the Invisalign treatment, the patient’s teeth will slowly and carefully move to the new desired location. At each new step of the process, the patient will receive a new set of bespoke aligners to help transition them to their goal at a steady pace. Typically each aligner will be worn roughly for 1 to 2 weeks on both the upper and lower teeth for at least 22 hours each day to achieve the results.  Another benefit of choosing Invisalign is that they have been designed specifically to be discrete, meaning that even at a social distance most people won’t  notice that you are wearing aligners.

So why should you choose Invisalign Clear Braces?

Many people are opting for Invisalign due to how innovative the technology is. After all it’s digital, proven, works and is led by highly experienced clinicians.

  1. They are removable – Invisalign has been carefully designed to be easily removed when eating or brushing your teeth. This is the opposite of traditional braces which are fixed to your teeth and unable to be removed, which can result in food building up when eating. We also recommend removing them when brushing and flossing your teeth, so that plaque does not build up on your teeth.
  2. They are discrete – Many people choose to opt for Invisalign due to the fact that they are incredibly discrete. The clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible and have been carefully created to ensure that they blend seamlessly in with your smile. The composite resin buttons that are placed onto individual teeth are made from natural tooth coloured resin to ensure that they are almost invisible to the naked eye.
  3. They are faster than traditional braces – Typically you will find that the treatment time for Invisalign is a lot faster than if you were to opt for traditional braces. In general, an Invisalign patient will wear their aligners between 22 to 24 hours a day for between 6 to 18 months. Traditional braces are permanently attached to your teeth and on average the treatment takes up to 2 or more years to complete.
  4. They allow for better oral hygiene – Due to their ability to be easily removed, patients are able to maintain high levels of oral hygiene throughout their treatment. You can easily brush and floss like normal between teeth without having to worry about cleaning around braces. With traditional braces often or not food gets stuck around those hard to reach areas, which can lead to plaque, cavities, gum disease and other issues. It is, however, important to make sure that you thoroughly clean your aligner trays to avoid bacteria building up and exposing teeth to tooth decay.
  5. They make it easier to maintain your good oral hygiene – With traditional braces, people often tend to neglect their oral health. Mainly due to the fact that it is often difficult to clean around the fiddly wires and brackets. Many people tend to avoid flossing when wearing traditional braces due to having to floss between each individual bracket to ensure that plaque has been removed, which can be incredibly time-consuming.  As previously mentioned, Invisalign is easily removed from the teeth, allowing you to floss and brush like normal in order to maintain good gum health and reduce risk of dental decay.
