What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a brand of clear aligners that offers a less intrusive treatment style than traditional, fixed braces. Clear aligners function like a moulded mouth guard that fits over your teeth. These ‘guards’ are custom designed to fit each patient and are used to correct a variety of issues. During treatment, the patient will continually renew the Invisalign brace every few weeks, each one slightly different, until the issue has been corrected.
What are the benefits of Invisalign braces?
One of the key benefits of choosing an Invisalign treatment is that you can remove the braces during the treatment. This is particularly noticeable during meal times as you can remove the Invisalign brace while you eat, giving you a normal mouth feel and allowing you to best enjoy your mealtimes.
A further benefit of Invisalign treatments, over traditional braces, is the smooth outer surface of the Invisalign brace. This helps make Invisalign treatments more comfortable in the mouth and avoid irritation caused by metal and wires. The Invisalign brace is one piece, meaning there’s less opportunity for damage and less cleaning maintenance that traditional braces.
