An ideal solution for adults and professionals, Invisalign is an ideal alternative to braces while still giving you a flawless smile. Allowing you to eat, drink and participate in all social occasions stress-free, Invisalign has many benefits to the wearer.

Unlike traditional braces that include imposing metal brackets and wires, Invisalign is easily removable and appears clear. Here are a few reasons to choose Invisalign over traditional metal braces:


Digital scanning

Generally recommended in conjunction with 3D digital scanning, the benefits of Invisalign treatment begin before you receive your aligners. This painless procedure is much less invasive than traditional impressions of the teeth using moulds. This scan is also much less intrusive than traditional X-Rays.



As Invisalign trays are completely clear, wearing them will not detract from your smile. Blending seamlessly into your smile, the discreet nature of Invisalign permit you to throw yourself into life without the embarrassment or stigma of wearing conventional metal braces. The trays can also be removed for any special occasions


Low maintenance

As Invisalign only need to be maintained every 6 weeks on average. You will save an exorbitant amount of time, money and effort by choosing them over braces. Caring for the trays is an extremely simple daily task that involves brushing them down before you brush your teeth, ensuring correct dental hygiene. Build-up and bacteria are a worry of the past.



The smooth plastic Invisalign trays are made of make for a considerably more comfortable experience than traditional metal braces. There are no sharp/imposing metal pieces of Invisalign – and as the trays are custom-made for your mouth, there is no discomfort or issues with ill-fitting mechanisms or no risk of cuts within the mouth. Speaking is also easy – as the trays are extremely thin, so your tongue and lips can easily adjust to this slight change.



Conventional metal braces can severely affect demineralisation and decaying teeth, as they use a great deal of force to assist the teeth straightening process. Invisalign wearers can rest assured that clear braces reduce the damage normally associated with metal braces, including cavities, discomfort or gum disease.


Fewer food restrictions

Food restrictions are an unattractive reality about many teeth straightening orthodontic options. However, by simply removing Invisalign trays before eating, you can eat whatever you’d like! The trays slide back into your mouth with ease after finishing a meal.


Multi-functional trays

Wearing Invisalign while participating in sporting activities can provide your mouth with more protection. The trays can also be used overnight to prevent your teeth from grinding as you sleep, or perhaps to shelve teeth whitening solution for DIY whitening treatments.
