Over the last two decades, clear aligners have dramatically grown in popularity, with one brand leading the charge. Invisalign is a much-loved teeth straightening treatment that’s used by millions of teens and adults worldwide.
Discreet, convenient, and comfortable; Invisalign can improve the appearance of your smile and give you a fresh sense of confidence while setting you up for a lifetime of better oral health.
Find the answers to all these questions here while we discuss some of the most significant benefits of Invisalign.
There’s no need to hide your smile away from the world while you’re undergoing smile-enhancing Invisalign treatment.
One of the most attractive benefits of Invisalign is that the aligners are translucent. Once placed on your teeth, your aligner will seamlessly blend into your smile, and barely anyone will notice you’re wearing them. This makes Invisalign ideal for even the most self-conscious.
Your Invisalign aligner is removable. It simply slides effortlessly over your teeth, and it’s easily removed whenever needed.
You must wear your aligner for around 22 hours daily to get the desired effect; however, you can remove them at mealtimes. This means you won’t have to worry about food getting trapped in the appliance and you can enjoy all your favourite meals with confidence.
Invisalign uses a patented medical-grade plastic called SmartTrack. Although you’ll need to wear your aligner most of the time, it’s smooth and lightweight, meaning you’ll barely notice you’re wearing it.
In fact, Invisalign is so comfortable you can sleep with your aligner in.
There’s a common misconception that orthodontic treatments are just for teenagers. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. Although we like to treat alignment issues while you’re younger, treatment is just as effective in your 20s, 30s, 40s, and beyond.
Problems with how your upper and lower teeth align when your mouth is closed can impact your health leading to jaw pain that spreads through your face, neck, shoulders, and head. In many cases, Invisalign can help. In more complex instances, we may recommend combining treatments to get the best results.
Traditional braces require adjustments throughout your treatment. With Invisalign, there are no adjustments. Instead, we’ll give you a new aligner every couple of weeks.
The beauty of Invisalign is that your entire treatment will be planned out for you by the latest dental software. We’ll take digital scans of your teeth and plot out your treatment journey before it begins. We can even show you what your new smile will look like.
Because of the intricate planning, the lab can create bespoke aligners that carry out a series of small precision movements that add up to a noticeably improved smile.
Because you can remove your aligners, there are no challenges when it comes to brushing your teeth. Instead of navigating your brush around a fixed appliance, you can clean your teeth exactly as you normally would.
To keep your aligner clean, just brush it with a different soft toothbrush and liquid soap and rinse it off.
While Invisalign is convenient, discreet, and comfortable, it’s also very effective. The exact length of your treatment will vary depending on your specific case and can range from around six months to two years. However, Invisalign enjoys a fantastic success rate with noticeable results in many cases within a couple of months.
At GM Dental, we’ve improved the appearance of countless smiles using Invisalign. Our patients love the accuracy of the treatment, along with the near-invisible and comfortable aligners.
