For many years, if you wanted to have your teeth straightened there wasn’t much option but to have a traditional, metal brace fitted. They have always been extremely effective but unfortunately can lead to a lack of confidence because of their obtrusive and unsightly appearance. Advances in dentistry mean that there are now other ways of straightening your teeth with don’t have the same effect on your appearance.
The fact that Invisalign braces are known as the ‘see through braces’ or even ‘invisible braces’ is testament to how discreet they are. They are still constructed individually to suit your unique mouth but they are made of a material that is see-through and even your closest intimates would have a difficult job seeing that you are wearing it.
Modern, digital technology means that they can be made quickly too, without any lengthy waits and the discomfort of dental putty to take moulds. What’s more, they are completely removable and can be taken out for important social occasions or sports as long as they are worn for at least twenty two hours every day.
What with the fact that there is not tightening of wires involved, patients find that Invisalign is far more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Instead of tightening, your dentist will simply provide you with a new Invisalign when you need one to continue the process of adjusting your teeth so that they are nice and straight.
