What Are The Benefits of Invisalign?

In the warmer months, we tend to eat more healthily, exercise more and try to make our skin look radiant and glowing. But if you’re self-conscious about your smile because of misalignment, don’t feel like you have to hide in the shade. Here at Heaton Mersey Orthodontic Centre we’re proud to offer our patients an expert-led, discreet treatment to straighten your smile. Over 4 million patients across the world have chosen Invisalign – but why?

1. Invisalign clear braces are discreet

The most infamous benefit of Invisalign transparent aligners, is their ability to remain virtually undetectable throughout the treatment; so Heaton Mersey Orthodontic Centre patients in Stockport can achieve exceptional results inconspicuously. Some people feel uncomfortable about undertaking orthodontic treatment beyond childhood, but with the understated nature of Invisalign treatment there is no need to feel self-conscious. Taking steps to correct misalignment with Invisalign is an excellent way to improve confidence as the elusive nature of Invisalign means that you don’t have to wait until after their treatment to show off your gorgeous smile.

2. Invisalign is flexible around your lifestyle

Invisalign clear braces are detachable and easy to maintain, creating minimal disruption to your lifestyle. Here at Heaton Mersey Orthodontic Centre, we recommend wearing your Invisalign for a minimum of 22 hours a day, and removing them for meal times, drinking and brushing. However, you are welcome to remove them for a special occasion or a night out every once in a while, if they are put back in afterwards. A recommended time frame such as 22 hours is advised for wearing your Invisalign so that you can get the incredible results they deserve. Invisalign also allows you to see virtual representations of your teeth at the end of your treatment, so you can visualise your incredible end-result.

3. Invisalign is more comfortable

Classic-style fixed braces detain your teeth with tight metal brackets and wires, causing grazes to inner cheeks, irritated gums and an overall painful experience at times. In addition, fixed braces can lead to tooth discolouration, breakage, and eating and drinking can become stressful for some patients. Invisalign aligners have no sharp edges, and sit comfortably, until you’re ready to remove them for eating and drinking – there’s no added strain or discomfort. With Invisalign, you may feel your teeth move when trays are first changed, but our aligners are specially designed to cause controlled movement for teeth that have been chosen at that stage of the treatment. As well as reducing pain, this also allows Orthodontists and patients to virtually design elements of their smile at the end of the treatment.

Every few weeks you will be invited back to our Stockport practice for brand-new custom-designed aligners that keep your teeth moving towards your beautiful smile.
