Benefits of Invisalign

Are you considering teeth straightening? Unsure if Invisalign is for you?

Here at Benfleet Dental Centre, we want to ensure that you the information to make an informed decision. This month we look at 5 benefits of using Invisalign to straighten your teeth.

1. Invisalign aligners are made from SmartTrack material and are virtually invisible

The proprietary SmartTrack material, which is trimmed to fit your exact gum line, ensures that the aligners are comfortable to wear for 22 hours a day. They fit snuggly over your teeth and are clinically proven to provide greater control of movement, gently moving teeth and even rotating them if needed. The clear material and close fit also ensures that people are more likely to notice your changing smile, than the aligners doing the work.

The Invisalign state of the art digital planning tool enables you to see how your teeth will look prior to starting treatment, taking the mystery out of teeth straightening. The My Invisalign Smile App also allows you to record your journey and chart the changes in your teeth each time you change aligners.

3. Made to move all sorts of smiles, efficiently and gently

Invisalign treatment has been used to help over 6 million people reveal the smile they deserve and is clinically proven to be effective at treating mild to complex teeth straightening issues, including gapped teeth, overcrowding, deep bites, cross bites, overbites and underbites.

Invisalign aligners are removable so you will be able to still be able to brush and floss your teeth as normal, reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease while you are straightening your teeth. You will also remove the aligners when eating, so no food will be off limits. For those who participate in contact sports, Invisalign aligners can be removed before you play.

5. Reduced dental appointments and treatment times

The way the treatment plan is put together means that you will only need to attend for short dental visits every 6 to 8 weeks, so the dentist can monitor progress and provide you with your next series of aligners. It is also now possible to change your aligners every week rather than every two weeks, meaning you can achieve the smile you want in as little as three months. That’s up to 50% faster than before.
