The benefits of Invisalign

If you’re wondering why Invisalign Golders Green seems to be becoming more and more popular, then this article is for you. Today the team here at The Garden Dental Practice are going to look into all the reasons we think Invisalign is an excellent system for anyone wanting to straighten up their smile.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign Golders Green is an orthodontic system that uses clear tray aligners to gradually move teeth into a new position. They’ve taken off in popularity massively in the last fifteen years or so as people are wanting a more subtle form of teeth straightening and with that in mind let’s move on to the big benefits!

Basically invisible

A major positive of Invisalign Golders Green is that they’re super subtle when in place, as the plastic trays are basically invisible. This is a fantastic feature for anyone who has a customer facing job or someone working in a professional environment. It’s highly unlikely anyone will be able to notice you wearing them unless they’re really looking closely.

Super comfy

One thing that’s very important with braces is that they’re as comfortable as possible for the person wearing them when they have them in. As Invisalign is smooth to touch you won't have any sharp metal bits rubbing against your gums or tongue which is really great if you’re someone who’s worrying about getting sores. The trays themselves also only apply small amounts of pressure, so although there will be days when your teeth are feeling sensitive, for the most part the experience should be relatively comfortable.

Totally removable

Something we at The Garden Dental Practice notice is how often people who are wearing braces develop gum disease and decay when straightening teeth. This is because when people have fixed wired braces it can be really tricky to get to those areas that need the most cleaning such as between the teeth and the gum line. As the aligners are totally removable you’ll be able to reach your teeth just as you have done previously with no extra hassle.

As the aligners are removable it does also give the patient the option to take out the aligners for those extra special occasions. Of course this needs to be sensible and not abused. Once every now and then is fine, but if you’re taking your trays out every time you go on a night out you will impact the straightening process.

Finally because you will be taking out your braces for eating you won’t need to make any adjustments to your diet which is great! Gone are the days of avoiding chewing or crunchy foods!

If you think all of that sounds amazing and you want to find out some more then feel free to contact the practice either via phone, or email and we’ll get you booked in for a initial consultation where we’ll discuss if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign and how long we expect your alignment journey to take.
