How to choose between Invisalign and braces?

Dental technology has progressed significantly in the way of braces that you might never even realise someone is undergoing dental treatment right in front of you! Have you heard about Invisalign? Learn more about the incredible dental technology that has almost replaced the need for braces. 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without the use of metal braces. Invisalign is a series of custom-made clear braces that cover your teeth and gently pull them into the proper position over time. Because they are clear and can be taken on and off, they are less noticeable than traditional metal braces.

Does Invisalign look like regular braces? 

With Invisalign, there are no metal brackets or wire braces to detract from your smile while undergoing treatment. Your teeth can be comfortable, beautiful, all whilst undergoing treatment, resulting in precise alignment. Whether you are a parent exploring orthodontic treatment for your teenager, or an adult who has put off treatment for years, Invisalign is an effective and discreet solution.

Invisalign is a much more subtle approach to orthodontic treatment, in fact, they are virtually unnoticeable. 

Top three reasons to choose Invisalign over traditional braces 

  1. Continue eating your favourite foods. The clear plastic braces are removable, so you can continue eating your favourite foods. Just ensure to brush your teeth properly following your meal to avoid staining your Invisalign aligners. 
  2. Maintain good oral health. You can continue to brush and floss as normal without the hassle of food getting stuck in traditional braces. 
  3. Smile with confidence. Invisalign is a subtle yet effective option to the perfect smile. Most people won’t even notice your aligners! Meaning you can smile with confidence. 

How long will your treatment take?

The average Invisalign treatment time is one year but treatment time for will vary based on the age and specific needs of each person. Each case is different, so after your teeth are examined and digital images are captured, you’ll receive an estimated treatment time.
