It's a more comfortable and less intrusive way of straightening teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces with brackets and wires, Invisalign is very discreet and virtually invisible. This gives patients the confidence to smile and socialise as normal without feeling self-conscious. You can also take the aligners out for easy cleaning, brushing and flossing. The aligners shouldn't be worn for eating, so there’s no need to avoid certain foods. Traditional braces also require constant visits to the dentist for tightening. In contrast, Invisalign works effectively to keep the right amount of pressure on the teeth without the need for tightening. This means you won’t have to visit your dentist quite so often.
