If you’re dithering over whether or not you should commit to Invisalign Weybridge then don’t worry we’re about to unpick all the reasons Invisalign is still topping the charts in orthodontics in the hope of offering you some more clarity.
Super smart and subtle
If you’re looking for an orthodontic system that’s not going to disrupt your life then Invisalign could be the way to go. The aligners are made from clear plastic and as such give an invisible look and feel. This can be a great asset to patients at any stage of life, as for lots of people the concept of braces brings up feelings of discomfort and anxiety over the idea of people looking at them.
Easy cleaning and healthier teeth
One of the points often overlooked by those wanting to straighten their smile is how they’re going to keep their teeth in good health during the treatment. It’s very common for dentists to see patients’ gum and tooth health deteriorate during an orthodontic treatment as patients don’t have such good access to their teeth with wires in the way. However, with Invisalign this is no longer an issue as the appliances themselves are totally removable, meaning patients have full access to their teeth and so are able to maintain a very detailed daily hygiene routine without having to make any compromises or changes.
As mentioned these braces are removable and this is not only great for cleaning it’s also great for those wanting to stick to the same diet as before. It’s not that those wearing fixed braces have to make massive changes, but they do need to be aware of what they’re eating or how likely it is to cause damage to their brace. For example it’s not a good idea when wearing a wire brace to take big bites into an apple, as you could potentially break a wire from its base. The same can be said for chewy sweets or even particularly crunchy bread. As you have to remove Invisalign to eat, this concern doesn’t even come into play.
Dentists don’t want to encourage people to take their aligners out indiscriminately, but one lovely feature of Invisalign is that you’re able to remove the braces for extra special occasions such as birthdays and weddings. Note though that if you’re taking them out every other weekend it will really impact your progress so it really is just for special occasions.
Comfort comes first
Another beautiful benefit of Invisalign is that the braces are generally speaking much more comfortable than traditional wired braces for the simple fact that you don’t have any wires or metal plates running against your tongue and gums. Of course there can be some mild discomfort as the teeth move into their new positions, but that’s the case with all types of brace.
Get booked in
If you’re still unsure if Invisalign is for you then it’s well worth booking in with your dentist for an initial consultation so they can answer any further questions you have.
