We’re often asked whether the cost of Invisalign is worth it compared to other orthodontic treatments, and whilst each case is different, we’ve put together some general guidance to help you when picking a dental treatment to fit in with your lifestyle and to help achieve your best smile.
INVISALIGN IS MUCH LESS NOTICEABLE
This is one of the main advantages of Invisalign and a reason why it’s the treatment of choice for celebrities who are photographed all the time. Invisalign is a discreet treatment which you can complete without drawing extra attention to your mouth.
YOU CAN REMOVE YOUR INVISALIGN BRACES WHENEVER YOU NEED TO
One of the main differences between traditional metal braces is that Invisalign braces are removable. They should be worn for around 22 hours each day but they can be removed at mealtimes, when you’re brushing and flossing or for special occasions.
Metallic braces wearers sometimes feel restricted in their food choices but the Invisalign wearers do not have to worry about this.
GUIDANCE FOR CHOOSING AN INVISALIGN PROVIDER
Your Invisalign treatment involves creating custom-fit braces, called aligners, for you to wear throughout the treatment. The number of aligners needed depends on your individual case and you will find this out after your teeth have been assessed. You’ll need to visit your dentist every two months for check-ups and to receive your next set of aligners. For this reason it’s important to choose a provider that in a location easy for you to get to and which has opening hours to suit your needs.
