How Effective Are Invisalign Braces?
Read on if you’d like to hear more about Invisalign braces – the teeth-straightening treatment that’s taken the celebrity world by storm. Today, our experienced Wolverhampton dentists share lots of facts about the treatment, including how it may benefit you. So whether you’ve had braces before or are totally new to the experience, find out more about Invisalign in this blog post.
So, how effective are Invisalign braces?
Extremely. In fact, clear braces have been used to treat teeth alignment concerns in millions of patients all around the world, as well as actor Tom Cruise and singer Billie Eilish, to name but a few. Invisalign braces involve a ‘refinement’ period at the end of treatment to make any final adjustments, and you’ll also have retainers to wear to keep your teeth in their new positions.
How comfortable is Invisalign treatment?
Because the technology repositions teeth incrementally, it’s effectively like having minor tweaks and adjustments every few weeks. Patients in Wolverhampton typically find Invisalign much more comfortable than alternatives like fixed metal braces, which involve metal wires and brackets.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
This is a ‘how long is a piece of string’ question, as it depends very much on the individual’s smile and how committed they are to teeth straightening treatment. Invisalign does say that it’s possible to treat in as little as 6 months, depending on the extent of treatment required. A good rule of thumb is to assume 12-24 months.
How easy is Invisalign treatment?
You’ll be pleased to hear that it’s incredibly easy. Just wear your Invisalign aligners every day, clean them as directed, store them when you’re not wearing them and make sure you attend check-ups with our Wolverhampton dentists when required. There’s an Invisalign app you can use to track your progress, and there are Invisalign communities all over social media – with plenty of before and after shots to keep you motivated!
How costly are Invisalign braces?
Again, this depends on treatment time but Invisalign isn’t cheap. That’s because you’re really getting state-of-the-art technology – like clever computer scans that show each stage of treatment for your smile, as well as your predicted results. But millions of people can’t be wrong, and Invisalign remains one of the most popular choices for braces worldwide.
