Straighten Teeth Discreetly With An Innovative Braces System

Pretty young girl wearing bracesMost people associate orthodontic treatment with fixed metal ‘Ugly Betty’ style braces, but times have changed and orthodontic patients have so much more choice than just train-track braces. Orthodontics is one of the most rapidly advancing areas of dentistry and there is an array of new innovative treatments on offer.

Clear braces

One of the biggest disadvantages of traditional fixed braces is that they are highly visible; if you have these braces, you can’t help but flash a mouth full of metal every time you smile and this puts a lot of people, especially adults, off having treatment. In recent years, new treatments, which are much more discreet than traditional braces, have become available and treatments like Invisalign treatments have become incredibly popular.

Invisalign is a straightening system, which uses a series of clear, removable aligners to move the teeth; the aligners are made from clear plastic and each one is worn for a two-week period and then replaced with the next aligner in the treatment series until the teeth are perfectly straight. Invisalign is an innovative treatment, which provides an amazing solution for patients who do not want to wear highly visible braces.

graftWhat are the benefits?

The major selling-point of Invisalign braces is that they are virtually invisible, which means you don’t have to feel self-conscious about your smile during the treatment process, but there are additional benefits; Invisalign aligners are removable, which means that you can eat and drink without any problems and clean your teeth properly. You can also take the aligners out for special occasions to make sure you look your best. Invisalign is a comfortable, painless treatment system, which does not require any painful tightening or adjustments.

Invisalign also has Invisalign Teen and Invisalign Lite systems, which are designed for younger patients and less complex cases respectively. Invisalign is suitable for patients with a range of orthodontic problems, including crowded teeth, gaps between the teeth, crooked and twisted teeth and some cases of misalignment.
