Why you should choose Invisalign

Why you should choose Invisalign

It’s a common fact that as many as 40% of the British public are currently
unhappy with their teeth. Our teeth mean a lot to us as they’re visible
during almost all of our speech and expressions. If you’re unhappy with
crooked, misaligned, or just generally unappealing teeth, then the
chances are you’ve considered straightening them before. Many
adults, however, shy away from adult braces for fear of the dreaded ‘train
track’ appearance and instead think they must choose the metal braces
or nothing. This indeed is a myth and we’d like to introduce you to
Invisalign in Stourbridge.

What are clear aligners?

Invisalign is a tooth straightening system that does the job of braces but
looks nothing like them. In fact, they shun a lot of the traditional brace’s
negative characteristics to create a far superior patient journey. Invisalign
aligners are two separate trays – one for your top row of teeth, and one for the
lower that fit over your teeth. They’re custom-made to your mouth and
are therefore far more personalised as a tooth straightening system.

Invisalign are essentially clear braces

Invisalign takes traditional braces and turns all the negative stereotypes into
positives. For example, a lot of adults opt for Invisalign because the aligner
trays are clear. This means they’re incredibly discreet, allowing your
natural teeth to show through the plastic so that they don’t block your
smile. You’ll be pleased to know that there are no metal wires or brackets,
but instead, a smooth clear plastic that doesn’t infringe on your natural
expression and confidence.

The clear aligners are removable

Invisalign is indeed removable, they are not fused to your teeth with
dental adhesives, brackets, and wires, but instead fit over your teeth
rather like a gum shield albeit clear, more comfortable, and more
natural-looking gum shield. They can be taken out for important events
like meals, teeth cleaning and the occasional photo opportunity so that
you don’t find yourself limited to the close-lipped smile.

Invisalign doesn’t limit your diet

We have all heard about certain foods we must stay away from while
having our braces treatment but because Invisalign is removable, there is
no need to alter your meal times or skip over your favourites on the
dinner menu. Instead, you can simply remove the aligner, enjoy your meal,
clean your teeth and aligner and pop it back in when you’re done.
With that being said, Invisalign is the clear brace that have soared in
popularity here in Stourbridge and beyond. Here at Lion Dental, we provide
clear aligners to patients seeking a true teeth transformation.
