Why Invisalign is the clear way forward

Why Invisalign is the clear way forward

Wish something had been done when you were younger to correct your smile? Feel self-conscious at the thought of wearing braces as an adult? If only there was a discreet solution…

Well, great news – there is!

Invisalign is a revolutionary new system designed to straighten teeth. With a barely-there appearance, clear aligners are used with minimal fuss and maximum effect, to create ‘the smile you want, the way you want it’.

Think it sounds too good to be true? It’s not. Here, the team at the Harley Street Smile Clinic reveal everything you need to know about this advanced straightening system, and why it could be just what your smile’s been waiting for.

What is Invisalign?

We’re glad you asked. Invisalign is a fantastic alternative to traditional braces – and a complete game-changer!

Gone are the wires, bands, and restrictive diet associated with wearing braces. Instead, say hello to the innovative freedom of clear, custom-made aligners. They can be popped in and out easily and are so inconspicuous, no one will ever know you’re wearing them.

Incredibly thin, they are made from a clear thermoplastic material – SmartTrack® – which is patented exclusively for Invisalign use.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign works in much the same way as a traditional brace, by putting gentle pressure on teeth to nudge them into a more desirable position. However, instead of having unattractive wires and brackets fixed to your teeth, a custom clear aligner is used.

This aligner is then changed every few weeks to keep teeth moving in the right direction until they reach their desired position.

The fact you can remove the aligners means that nothing is off the menu. Simply take out the aligners when you want to eat, and you can still enjoy all your favourite foods.

Why opt for Invisalign over traditional braces?

If you’re not keen on the idea of traditional braces, Invisalign is the ideal solution.

Virtually transparent, they are subtle and unobtrusive, so there’s nothing to feel embarrassed or self-conscious about, which makes them a great option if you’re considering braces later in life.

Ideally, you need to wear aligners for 22 hours a day. It makes sense to wear them overnight, while you’re sleeping, so that leaves you with 2 hours to play with during the day. So, if you’ve got an important meeting, a hot first date, or just an appointment you’d rather not wear them for, you can easily take them out for a little while.

Are there any other treatment options?

There are a wide range of cosmetic treatment options available. Choosing the right one depends on what you’re trying to achieve and the complexity of your current smile.

In many cases, Invisalign aligners are great for correcting minor bite problems and straightening teeth. They are frequently used to tackle:

  • Gaps in teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

If your problems are more complicated, you may benefit more from alternative treatments, which is why you should always seek expert advice before committing.

Results that speak for themselves

Think that just because traditional braces look more industrial, they must be more effective? Think again.

Invisalign uses modern advances in technology to map out the movement of teeth and apply just the right amount of pressure to produce impressive results – the same concept as braces, but carefully honed and refined.
