Some Uncommon Facts About Invisalign Treatment with Clear Braces

Invisalign is a tried and tested technology for teeth straightening. Unlike the other conventional alternatives, this cutting-edge procedure has an overwhelming rate of success. Naturally, it happens to be one of the most popular orthodontic treatments across the UK.

For those, who’re are not as familiar with modern dentistry, Invisalign is not only a shorter in duration teeth straightening procedure but it also is very aesthetic as instead of metal braces and wires, you will have almost invisible aligners. Given the growing in popularity Invisalign technology, certain aspects about the treatment are known to almost everybody, however, there’re still certain crucial aspects of this orthodontic system that are not discussed that often. Let’s discuss those hidden aspects briefly so that you can familiarise yourself with Invisalign a little bit more.

Without any fixed appliance

In contrast to the conventional treatment procedures, the Invisalign treatment using clear braces doesn’t make use of any brackets or wires. In fact, it doesn’t use any fixed appliance. The procedure involves trays that are removable. You’re expected to wear the aligner trays for 20 to 22 hours every day to get the expected results. If you forget to wear your trays for a few days, this can significantly delay your treatment and it will take longer for you to get the desired results.

Conventional treatment difficulties

Brackets and wires used in conventional teeth straightening methods have some flip sides, which include the following:

  • They are uncomfortable.
  • Likely to irritate the gum tissues and the cheeks.
  • Make proper brushing and flossing difficult, as a result your oral hygiene is affected.
  • Restricts your diet badly.


On the other hand, millions of people, if not more, have crooked teeth. Many patients often require an extensive orthodontic treatment to resolve the problem; therefore, the conventional treatment using metal braces is ideal.

Mild orthodontic issues are aptly resolved with invisalign braces. It usually takes 12 to 18 months to make the necessary adjustments to your teeth. Minor issues are resolved even faster. The aligners are made of transparent plastic and remain almost invisible inside the mouth. In other words, this modern orthodontic technique causes minimal embarrassment to patients in contrast to the conventional metal braces.
