Methods for teeth straightening have been around for a long while, however, Invisalign takes it all to another level. Invisalign is well and truly at the forefront of cosmetic dentistry technology and in this blog, we’ll delve into why.

Join us as we take a look at why Invisalign is quickly becoming the most popular option for achieving aesthetically straight teeth. We’ll also explore what Zenith Dental has to offer when it comes to this wonderfully comfortable, effective and virtually-invisible treatment.

So, what is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clear alternative to traditional metal braces and is suitable for children, teenagers and adults. It is an invisible orthodontics technique which is used to treat and correct; gap teeth, crossbite, underbite, overbite, open bite and crowded teeth.

Invisalign involves a trained dentist creating custom-made plastic trays that are worn by the patient. The aligners move the teeth gradually over time and every 2 weeks the custom-made trays are changed to a different shape and size as the teeth become straighter.

The fitting of the aligners will always be tailored perfectly to each patient, allowing for a secure yet comfortable fit.

Why are more and more people switching over from traditional braces to Invisalign?

When compared to traditional braces, the benefits of Invisalign are impressive and plentiful. Let’s take a look at some of its features that have made it a front runner in the world of teeth straightening;

  1. Discretion- this is probably the most influential factor behind Invisalign’s rise in popularity. Invisalign straightens teeth without the requirement for any noticeable metal devices or wiring. So, not only is Invisalign super effective, it’s completely unnoticeable!
  2. Optimal Comfort- clear aligners come in different forms, however, only Invisalign aligners are made of SmartTrack material. This is a material that supports optimal comfort and also makes the aligners very easy to put on and take off. Comfort is also further supported by the absence of brackets and wires.
  3. More Freedom- Invisalign aligners are completely removable and can be removed easily and quickly without any assistance from a dental professional. Also, unlike traditional braces which come with a list of forbidden food to stay away from, Invisalign does not involve any food restrictions whatsoever!
  4. Quicker Results- the average treatment duration for traditional braces is around 16 to 18 months, whereas Invisalign treatment involves the aligners being worn for between 22 and 24 hours daily and a treatment duration that can last from as little as 6 months up to 18 months. The treatment time will vary from patient to patient and will mainly be determined by the complexity of each case.
