10 Reasons To Love Invisalign

27 Jul 2022

When you smile, you want to do so with confidence. Having radiant and healthy teeth can help this, but when they’re crowded, protruding, or gappy, you may feel the need to keep them hidden from view.

Perhaps the most obvious way of fixing these problems is to get fixed braces, but not everyone’s into metal – for many, the thought of tracks running across their teeth is worse than having a misaligned smile. 

The great news is that there’s an easier way; Invisalign. This revolutionary clear aligner system straightens your teeth without the need for fixed metal work. 

There are so many great reasons people love Invisalign. Here are the top ten. 

1. Invisalign Treats Several Alignment and Bite Issues

The position of your teeth can cause several problems. You may have crooked and overcrowded teeth, or you might have gaps between them. 

Some people have front teeth that stick out over the bottom set and appear too large for their mouths, while others may have bottom teeth that protrude over the top ones. 

Overcrowded, crooked, gappy, and protruding teeth may harm your self-esteem. But there are other issues to worry about. Problems fitting your top and bottom rows of teeth together when your mouth is closed could cause pain in your jaw, neck, head, or shoulders later in life.

Invisalign doesn’t just make teeth appear straighter, it also fixes complex bite problems, reducing the possibility of further complications. 

2. Invisalign Is Virtually Invisible

One of the things people dislike most about traditional braces is that they’re really noticeable. While you will get a straighter smile, you may not want to advertise this fact. You might not also want reminders of your braces showing up in every photo taken during your treatment.

Invisalign uses clear aligners made from a medical grade plastic. The transparent aligners are barely noticeable, meaning hardly anyone will ever notice they’re there! 

3. You Don’t Have To Worry About What You Eat

Fixed braces use brackets and wires to move your teeth. A common complaint of brace wearers is that food often gets trapped around the brackets and between the wires and teeth. While you can brush your teeth and clear any food debris, Invisalign patients don’t experience this problem at all. 

Because your Invisalign aligners are removable, you can take them out to eat. Just remember to pop them back when you’re done.

4. There Are No Uncomfortable Adjustments

Bracket and wire fixed braces need tightening periodically to straighten your teeth. This means regular appointments to adjust them. With Invisalign, you’ll wear your aligner for a few weeks before swapping it for a new one. 

Each new aligner set will be slightly different to the last one. But the great news is that there’s no need for an appointment to get your aligner set up.

5. The Results Are Noticeable Quickly

The length of time it’ll take to straighten your smile will depend on your specific needs; however, you might start seeing results sooner than you’d expect. 

Seeing the changes can help you stay motivated to keep wearing your aligner every day. Some people even snap a progress selfie to track their journey to straighter teeth.

6. It’s Easy To Keep Your Teeth and Mouth Clean

Cleaning around fixed braces can be challenging. Thankfully, with Invisalign it’s easy to brush your teeth. Simply take your aligner out, and brush your teeth as you normally would. 

Before you put your aligner back in, don’t forget to clean it. Aligners will pick up bacteria and food bacteria, so will need to be gently cleaned and rinsed whenever you brush your teeth.

7. You Can See Your Smile Before Your Treatment

Before you even get your first set of aligners, you’ll know what you can expect your new smile to look like. Using our iTero intraoral scanner, we’ll take digital impressions of your mouth during your initial consultation. 

Then, using state-of-the-art software, we’ll show you how your new smile will look. This software will also plan every stage of your treatment, so every tooth movement we make is perfectly smooth.

8. Invisalign Is Custom Made

Every set of Invisalign aligners is made-to-measure. Using the initial information from the intraoral scanner and planning software, the skilled laboratory technicians at Invisalign will make your perfect aligners. 

Each new aligner you receive will fit your mouth with precision. During the course of your treatment, you’ll change your aligner every couple of weeks. Each new aligner is unique to you and should be used as directed at a specific stage of your treatment.

9. Your Aligners Will Be Comfortable

Because every Invisalign aligner is made for your mouth, it will fit perfectly and feel comfortable. Some orthodontic options can feel quite noticeable and may even scratch the inside of your mouth. 

Invisalign uses smooth, lightweight plastic. When you’ve got your aligners in your mouth, they’ll be barely noticeable. Although you may feel them in your mouth at first, you’ll quickly get used to them being there. 

10. It’s Proven to Be Effective

Invisalign is one of the most recognisable brand names in the world of dentistry. Over the last couple of decades, millions of people around the world have chosen to straighten their teeth with Invisalign. 

Invisalign achieves amazing results and is responsible for putting smiles on countless faces. Because the entire treatment is planned out, as long as you wear your aligners as recommended, you’ll get the smile of your dreams in no time.
