Benefits of Invisalign

Everyone wants to have a straight smile and the award winning Invisalign is the perfect way to achieve the smile you desire.

Invisalign, so called because they are invisible aligners, is available at Kiln Lane Dental and is sure to straighten any crooked teeth you have and you can expect to see noticeable results within the first six months of your treatment.

Regular orthodontic braces, while they are also excellent for aligning teeth, can be painful, uncomfortable and unattractive.Invisalign treatments, however, are a superb alternative. Below see a list of the benefits of Invisalign.

How Invisalign worksis by using custom made aligners and regularly adjusting them to continue the teeth straightening process, but because your aligners are removable you can still enjoy the comfort of removing them while you eat and drink if you wish to do so. With conventional braces you cannot do this as they are fixed to your teeth.

Treatment Duration
It has been known for metal braces treatments to take up to five years but Invisalign treatments take only a maximum time of two years from the start of your treatment to achieving your perfectly straight smile.

Because a regular brace uses a lot of metal, often you may get sore gums or you may cut or scratch the inside of your mouth. Invisalign is much safer, as the clear aligners you wear are both comfortable and smooth. They do not have any protruding parts or sharp points which you could harm your mouth on. Additionally, another safety benefit with Invisalign compared to metal braces is they also reduce the chances of cavities.

Having a mouth full of metal could be considered by some to be attractive, but because Invisalign aligners are clear it will be barely noticeable that you are wearing them. Some people, particularly adults, are self-conscious when wearing metal braces as can get food in between the wires, which obviously is not a desirable look. Invisalign aligners are absolutely more attractive than regular orthodontic braces.

To conclude, Invisalign treatments have several advantages over traditional metal braces. They are considerably more comfortable, are a lot quicker and safer, while they also look significantly better too and all while still providing a straight, beautiful smile at the end of your treatment.
