Advantages of Invisalign Braces

Technology has propelled industries to the 21st century, and has advanced how professionals perform their skills. Cosmetic dentistry, with its various methods and devices for cosmetic and restorative procedures for health, as well as aesthetic effects, is no exception. One of the relatively new offerings of dentists across the U.K. today is Invisalign.

Invisalign is a cosmetic dental device that is offered essentially as an alternative to wire braces. The primary difference is that Invisalign is made of clear plastic, making the device lighter, smoother, and more comfortable. Best of all, it is practically invisible. Traditional braces and Invisalign can both be effective in correcting alignment imperfections of the teeth like overbite, underbite, crossbite, spacing, and crowding. However, Invisalign offers several of these advantages:

No Diet Restriction

With wire braces, there are restrictions on what you can eat. With Invisalign, you can eat almost any food you want.

No Care Difficulties

With traditional braces, brushing and flossing becomes difficult. Invisalign braces are removable, so you can brush or floss your teeth like normal. 


Metal braces can irritate gums and cheeks and may even lead to mouth sores. The plastic material of Invisalign minimizes these irritations.

Little to No Schedule Interference 

Wire braces require monthly visits to the dentist for replacement of rubber or wires and readjustments.  With Invisalign, the visits are fewer compared to traditional braces and are spaced longer, about once every six weeks.

Practically Invisible

Braces can look awkward on some. When you use Invisalign, people rarely will notice that you are wearing an oral device for teeth straightening.
If you want to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is an attractive option to check out. Contact your local dental office to learn more about it.
