Are Invisalign aligners effective for my orthodontic issue?

There are several benefits to straightening your teeth, like a prettier smile and improved oral health, but one glaring disadvantage that prevents people from seeking treatment is the appearance of some straightening devices.

Although braces have been upgraded since first being introduced to society, boasting sleek and subtle designs, the metal or ceramic materials from which braces are made remain visible.


Cue Invisalign Maidstone, a virtually invisible method to achieving straighter teeth using clear and customised aligners.


Every day at Fresh Dental Care, we recommend Invisalign to our self-conscious clients who want to discreetly straighten their teeth.

How do Invisalign aligners work?


Before treatment is considered, you'll have to undergo a case assessment which determines whether you're a suitable Invisalign candidate - unfortunately, not everyone is.


Invisalign treatments aren't practical for several dental health issues, things like a misaligned jaw that needs correcting for instance and in these cases we'll recommend alternative straightening methods to you instead.


Once we've decided Invisalign is suitable for your mouth, we'll take a series of X-rays and digital impressions to produce your personalised treatment programme using state-of-the-art 3D technology that monitors your progress and showcases predicted results.


You'll receive uniquely shaped aligners every two weeks, which gradually shift your teeth into the correct position. These translucent devices slip over your teeth and gum comfortably and can be removed when necessary. To achieve the best possible results, please wear your aligners for at least 22 hours every day.


What are the benefits of wearing aligners?


Invisalign's results are life-changing and they leave you with straighter teeth, the confidence to smile in photographs, and significantly improved dental hygiene.


You'll also find the user experience of wearing aligners every day mostly comfortable, pleasant and convenient.


The biggest advantage of using Invisalign Maidstone products is obvious; they're undetectable and suit people who want their teeth straightened under the radar.


If you're often in the limelight and don't want people to notice your straightening appliance, these aligners will suit your lifestyle needs.


Another top feature is the removable nature of the item that allows you to maintain your current teeth cleaning regime and diet. You can eat whatever you want to within reason and don't have to be concerned about snapping your braces after taking a bite out of an apple.


Adjusting to wearing plastic over your teeth takes time. At first, the appliance will feel strange, cumbersome and uncomfortable, but these feelings won't last longer than a few days.


Dental visits, which should occur every four to six weeks, are quick and easy and don't require the adjusting of wires, which is often painful or highly unpleasant.


You may be wearing Invisalign aligners for a shorter period than standard braces, but you will have to wear a retainer to prevent your teeth from shifting in the future.

Invisalign Maidstone, yes or no?


Invisalign is an alternative to standard braces. The orthodontic device, comprising a series of clear aligners, has no resemblance to conventional straightening aids.


Invisalign is enjoyed by those who want straighter teeth without the inconveniences linked to standard, metal appliances. However, not all dental issues can be effectively treated using Invisalign.
