5 reasons why Invisalign is so popular in 2018

Invisalign has changed the face of orthodontics, allowing patients to choose a removable and aesthetic brace option.

Minimally invasive

Invisalign are particularly popular with busy professionals who do not wish for their day-to-day routine to change dramatically. As they are removable, client-facing professionals do not have to worry about events such as presentations and meetings as there is the option of simply removing the aligners.

Easier to maintain good oral hygiene

As you can remove the aligners to brush and floss, it is much easier to maintain good oral and dental hygiene – the system allows for a 2 hour window each day in which patients can brush and eat without jeopardising their treatment. Invisalign are ideal for those who partake in contact sports, as you can simply remove the aligners to wear your protective orthodontic mouthguard – you can read more about these here.

Custom created for you and comfortable  

The Invisalign process involves taking accurate digital impressions of your teeth and these are then used to craft your plastic, transparent aligners. Invisalign aligners do not incorporate any brace hardware (brackets and wires) into their design, making them a more comfortable alternative to fixed braces that can sometimes pose a problem with their sharper edges.

Highly aesthetic design

The aligners are transparent and designed to look discreet to other people, being clear in finish.

Invisalign – a favourite in the celebrity world

All of the above reasons have particularly attracted celebrities, with names such as Niall Horan, Justin Bieber, Kathy Bates and Tom Cruise having chosen the appliance to straighten their teeth – Tom Cruise even sported them on the red carpet!

Stellar global reputation

Since its introduction onto the market in 1997, over 4 million people have chosen the treatment worldwide and this figure does not look set to subside with an increasing number of people seeking minimally-invasive ways of straightening their teeth.
