Heard the Buzz about Invisalign Braces?

Invisible braces are becoming ever more popular, here we give five reasons why adults are choosing these braces to help straighten their smiles.

When we are children, having a slightly crooked smile doesn’t seem like a big thing but as adults, it can feel embarrassing and can undermine confidence. After all, adults are judged on their appearance more than children, so having a slightly asymmetrical smile can make even the most outgoing individual feel insecure.

Luckily, modern dentistry is aware that adults don’t have the time to undertake traditional orthodontic braces as an option for straightening teeth and are able to offer more aesthetically pleasing alternatives, such as Invisalign; popular invisible braces in Barnsley that can straighten your teeth while being unnoticeable to the naked eye.

Here is a list of the top five other reasons people choose invisible braces in Barnsley and other clear aligners!

Lifestyle friendly

With some orthodontic braces, many people find it harder to maintain eating and drinking all of the food they want to, as they risk getting stickier foods stuck in the braces. Also, maintaining regular check-ups to the hygienist for thorough teeth cleaning session can put pressure on your schedule.

With braces like Invisalign, you can remove the brace and put it back in and as the aligner is clear, you require no specialized cleaning appointments to keep your teeth healthy.

Easy maintenance

Metal braces can be tough to look after; you have to check for damage to the wires and brackets, while also ensuring you are not doing anything that could cause uncomfortable protrusions of the metal.

Invisible aligners are made from a clear, flexible, but durable plastic that can easily be checked for damage and just requires a simple brush and rinses with water to keep them clean. Very convenient!

More comfortable

Worrying about potential discomfort puts a large percentage of adults off from undertaking orthodontic treatment; discomfort when wearing a brace is expected due to the way traditional braces work, by pulling the teeth into their new position.

Invisible aligners are custom made to fit easily over your teeth and use gentle pressure to move the teeth into their desired position. You will often have to wear different aligners through the treatment, which is using the same technique but as the aligners are individually designed for each stage, no pulling or force is required.

Better prediction

Invisalign technology uses advanced computer software to predict how your teeth will need to be moved to get that gorgeous smile you are after.

Your dentist will be able to show you how each aligner will move your teeth and breakdown each stage of treatment, so you will know 100% what to expect and will be prepared; very reassuring.

Confidence

Invisible aligners are unnoticeable to the naked eye, so you won’t have to worry about your colleagues or friends knowing you are undertaking orthodontic treatment. You can go about your day to day life with supreme confidence, knowing that your teeth look natural while wearing the brace and soon, they will look even better!
