So, why do people choose Invisalign?
If you are thinking about straightening your teeth and improving your smile, you may have come across Invisalign during your research. This innovative system uses clear, flexible aligners to straighten teeth. Far more discreet and comfortable than metal braces, everyone is talking about Invisalign and for good reason.
Invisalign clear aligners correct the position of teeth in a way that is practically unnoticeable to everyone you meet. Over 10 million people have chosen Invisalign to straighten their teeth* and this treatment is a popular choice at the Oxford Orthodontic Centre.
Firstly, Invisalign Clear Aligners are more comfortable than a fixed metal brace. The aligners are made with SmartTrack material which is specially engineered for the Invisalign system. The aligners apply a gentle but constant force.
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign is more convenient. You won’t need to visit your dentist frequently to have your brace tightened instead you will change the aligner weekly at home.
The aligners are barely noticeable when worn. Depending on the corrections needed you may require ‘attachments’ which are placed directly on the teeth. These attachments are small, the same colour as your teeth and are incredibly discreet. The Invisalign system makes complex tooth movements possible without the need for fixed braces.
Invisalign clear aligners are removable! Take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss – you can even remove them when you are playing sports or a musical instrument if necessary. Invisalign is a versatile teeth straightening system that fits around you. To receive the best results from Invisalign treatment we just recommend that you wear your aligner for 22 hours a day.
You will constantly see an improvement to your teeth with Invisalign. As you transition through your set of aligners you can see how your teeth are slowly but surely moving. You don’t have to wait until your treatment is over to see results like you would with traditional metal braces.
The aligners are easy to keep clean, there is no chance of getting food trapped in them as you may with a metal brace. You also won’t have to select your meals carefully as you can remove the aligners to eat.
Invisalign eliminates many of the common woes associated with wearing conventional braces. The system offers more comfort and convenience. Invisalign technology has improved over the years to treat a wider range of cases, including overbite and underbite.
The results speak for themselves, and our patients are genuinely happy with their new smile. To ensure that the teeth do not move back to their original position, retention will be achieved with a Vivera retainer.
