Why you should choose Invisalign

21st August 2019

Why you should choose Invisalign

According to dental publications, as many as 40% of the British public are currently unhappy with their teeth. Our teeth mean a lot to us, as they’re visible during almost all of our speech and expression. If you’re unhappy with crooked, misaligned, or just generally unappealing teeth, then the chances are you’ve considered straightening them before. Many adults, however, shy away from the adult braces for fear of the dreaded ‘train track’ look also known as the traditional brace and think they have to choose that option or go nothing. However, here at Roseacre Dental can offer you a solution like no other in the heart of Kent – the incredible Invisalign aligner.

What are Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign are a tooth straightening system that do the job of braces but look nothing at all like them. In fact, they disregard a lot of traditional braces negative characteristics in subvert them to create a far superior patient journey. Invisalign aligners come with two separate trays – one for your top row of teeth, one for the lower – that fit over your teeth. They’re custom made to your mouth and there look and feel more personalised to each tooth’s needs.

Invisalign are essentially clear braces

Invisalign take traditional braces and turn all of their negatives into positives. For example, a lot of adults opt for Invisalign because the aligner trays are clear. This means they’re incredibly discreet, allowing your natural teeth to show through the plastic so that they don’t affect your smile at all. Invisalign also has no metal wiring or brackets, but instead a smoot clear plastic that doesn’t infringe on your natural expression and confidence.

Invisalign are removable

Invisalign are indeed removable. They are not fused to your teeth with dental adhesives, brackets, and wires, but instead fit over your teeth rather like a gum shield albeit a clear, more comfortable, and ore natural looking gum shield. They can be taken out for meals, teeth cleaning, and the occasional photo opportunity or social gathering so you don’t find yourself limited to close lipped smile.

Invisalign are more comfortable

There is a lot of discomfort associated with lingual braces, these being the traditional metal kind. Because they’re fused to your teeth, there’s a lot of pulling and forcing your teeth into a more aligned position. Not only this, but your wires can snap, or a bracket can shift, causing discomfort not only on your teeth but your gums and soft tissues too. Invisalign braces are made of a smooth yet durable plastic, so discomfort will be at a minimal level on your soft tissues. Not forgetting because you receive a new set of aligners every few weeks your teeth are constantly gently ushered and guided into a more uniform position rather than forcibly shifted. You may still feel a slight pressure sensation while you adjust to your next set of aligners, but there should be no uncomfortable tugging as with traditional braces.
