Invisalign Vs. Traditional Braces

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Having to wear braces is not something that anyone would look forward to. But what if you could get permanent tooth correction without having to deal with any of the downsides of traditional braces?


Our Wimpole Street dentists can show you the benefits of Invisalign treatment – clear invisible braces that are a real alternative for straightening teeth – and then you can decide if this is the better treatment option for you.


Eat Anything!


Traditional braces will mean that you have to steer clear of foods like popcorn, sweets, and chewing gum because they stick to the teeth and get underneath the braces.


With Invisalign, you can eat whatever you want and you will never have to worry that anything you might eat will damage your straighteners.


Remove Them Anytime You Need To


Once traditional braces are fixed to your teeth only a dental professional can remove them, and when that day comes, your treatment is done.


With Invisalign straighteners you can take them out wherever you want for a special occasion or to eat, and then pop them back in without compromising the treatment.


No Embarrassment


Traditional braces look pretty obvious fixed on to a person’s teeth and this will often make people anxious and embarrassed.


As the name might suggest Invisalign straighteners are almost invisible, so no one need ever know that you have having treatment.


Better Oral Health


It is hard to brush and floss properly when you wear traditional braces and you can end up creating a different oral health problem as you try to correct another one.


Invisalign straighteners can be taken out so brushing and flossing can be maintained.


No Irritation or Pain


The metal wires that are used in traditional braces have a reputation for discomfort, pain, and mouth sores. And with treatment being long term, patients are often forced to put up with discomfort for long months.


The smooth plastic construction of Invisalign straighteners is carefully molded to the teeth for a pain free and comfortable, fit. This is one of the most important benefit of Invisalign treatment.


Fewer Dental Visits


Traditional braces mean frequent dental visits for correction and tightening. And to maintain oral health, cleanings and intensive treatments might also be necessary.


Invisalign straightener patients usually only need to see a dentist every 4 to 6 weeks making the commitment easier to fit into a busy life. Visit our web page for more information: wimpoledental.co.uk/invisalign-london.php
