What Are The Benefits Of Invisalign?
Invisalign is a leading teeth-straightening treatment that swaps fixed metal braces for removable plastic aligners (or trays). We’ve offered the treatment here in Stourbridge for years – all led by our Diamond Top 50 Invisalign dentist, Dr Francesca Dash. Here’s a bit more about Invisalign and its many benefits, so if you’re interested in having adult braces or simply want to know more while undergoing treatment, you’ve come to the right place.
Benefit 1: comfortability
We know how important it is here in Stourbridge to have comfortable dental treatment. In fact, fear of the dentist (or of pain at the dentist) can put people off the treatment they want, or even need. With Invisalign, you don’t need to worry. The plastic aligners fit comfortably over your smile, as they’re custom-made for your teeth and your unique treatment journey. Fixed metal braces, on the other hand, can cause pressure and discomfort, especially when being tightened.
Benefit 2: flexibility
Need to take a quick break? Want a snack? Need to be photo-ready? No problem. As long as you wear your Invisalign adult braces for 20-22 hours per day, your treatment stays on track. In fact, our Stourbridge dentists recommend removing your aligners when eating or cleaning your teeth! Ask us about a case to store your Invisalign in when you need to remove it.
Benefit 3: predictability
How many treatments can you safely say give you a picture of your results before they happen? Thanks to the clever iTero scanner we use here at our Stourbridge practice, our top dentists can take images of your mouth, teeth and gums to draw up your bespoke Invisalign treatment plan. State-of-the-art software then calculates each stage of treatment, and how many aligners you’ll need to gently straighten that smile. Best of all, we’ll create a digital impression of that finished result. Now that’s certainly something to smile about!
Benefit 4: healthy
Invisalign adult braces could enhance the health of your smile, as well as its appearance. That’s because certain concerns – like bite problems, gaps or crowding – may make it hard to clean your teeth effectively. Invisalign can help create the optimum spacing between teeth and even reveal more of the tooth’s surface, for deeper, better cleaning.
