If the very thought of traditional braces evokes feelings of discomfort for those familiar with them and their challenges, we have the perfect solution. At Define Clinic, London, we recognise these concerns and are delighted to tell you that we offer Invisalign® clear aligners as a discreet and effective solution for achieving beautifully aligned teeth without the drawbacks of conventional braces.

If you’ve ever contemplated straightening your teeth but felt uncertain about where to begin, fear not – we’re here to provide you with insights into Invisalign® before you start your journey to a more confident smile. Let’s delve into the details…

Understanding Invisalign® – Your Path To A Confident Smile

Invisalign® is one of the most popular brands of clear aligners on the market. They are renowned for their transformative effect on smiles worldwide and have been a regular feature in the UK for several years. When we refer to Invisalign®, we’re highlighting the aligners designed to gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions over time. Unlike traditional braces, which rely on metal components, Invisalign® aligners are crafted from clear, medical-grade thermoplastic, offering a discreet and comfortable alternative.

These custom-made aligners work by exerting gentle pressure on your teeth, encouraging them to move into alignment. Every week or two, you’ll move to a new set of aligners, each one carefully crafted to facilitate gradual movement. Despite their resemblance to retainers, Invisalign® aligners serve a distinct purpose – to guide your teeth into their optimal positions, resulting in a perfectly aligned smile that you can share with the world!

Why Choose Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners offer numerous advantages over traditional braces, making them an appealing choice for individuals looking to straighten their smiles:

Discreet Appearance – One of the main reasons individuals opt for Invisalign® is their virtually invisible appearance. Unlike traditional braces, which can certainly be hard to miss, these aligners blend seamlessly with your teeth, allowing you to undergo orthodontic treatment without drawing unwanted attention to your smile.

Comfortable Fit – Invisalign® are custom-made to fit snugly over the teeth, providing a comfortable and secure fit. Unlike metal brackets and wires, which can cause irritation and discomfort, the aligners are smooth and gentle on the gums and soft tissues of the mouth, enhancing overall comfort throughout the treatment process.

Ease Of Use – Unlike traditional braces, which are permanently fixed to the teeth, clear aligners are removable, allowing greater flexibility and convenience. Aligners can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing, enabling you to maintain your oral hygiene routines without any disruption.

Improved Oral Health – In fact, Invisalign® tends to promote better oral health by facilitating regular brushing and flossing as new routines are formed. Unlike traditional braces, which can trap food particles and plaque around the brackets and wires, Invisalign® aligners can be removed for thorough cleaning, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath.

Enhanced Confidence – Achieving a straighter, more aligned smile can boost confidence and self-esteem. Invisalign® offers a discreet and effective solution for individuals who wish to improve the appearance of their smile without the inconvenience and visibility of traditional braces. After all, no one wants to attend a meeting or give a presentation while worrying about their colleagues staring at their teeth!

By choosing clear aligners with our team, you can enjoy the benefits of a straighter smile while maintaining your lifestyle and confidence. At Define Clinic, London, we’re committed to providing our patients with the highest quality orthodontic care using advanced technologies like Invisalign®. There are some things you may already believe about this treatment but we’re here to dispel some common myths before you attend your consultation!

Dispelling Myths Surrounding Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Despite the widespread popularity of Invisalign®, misconceptions are still rife. Let’s address some common myths surrounding this treatment:

Myth #1 – Invisalign Is Only Suitable For Minor Alignment Issues

Contrary to popular belief, Invisalign® is suitable for correcting a wide range of orthodontic issues, from mild to severe misalignments. Advanced technology and orthodontic expertise allow for the treatment of various dental concerns using Invisalign® aligners.

Myth #2 – Invisalign Is Simply Too Expensive

While cost perceptions may vary, Invisalign® treatment can be comparable to or even more affordable than traditional braces in some cases. Factors such as treatment complexity and duration can influence overall costs.

Myth #3 – Invisalign Is Painful

Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic, reducing the likelihood of discomfort associated with metal wires and brackets. Any initial discomfort typically subsides as you adjust to wearing a new set of aligners.

Myth #4 – Invisalign Treatment Is Faster Than Braces

The duration of Invisalign® treatment varies depending on individual factors, and in some cases, it may take a comparable amount of time as traditional braces. Each case is unique, and treatment timelines will be discussed during your consultation.

Myth #5 – Invisalign Aligners Are Noticeable

Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible when worn, thanks to their clear plastic material. While attachments may be necessary in some cases, they’re discreet and less noticeable than traditional braces.

Myth #6 – Invisalign Doesn’t Require Maintenance

Proper care and maintenance are crucial for successful Invisalign® treatment. Everyone who undergoes treatment must follow instructions for wearing, cleaning and storing their aligners to ensure optimal results.

Myth #7 – Invisalign Can Fix All Orthodontic Problems

While clear aligners can address many orthodontic issues, complex cases may require alternative treatments for optimal results. Consulting with an experienced orthodontist is essential to determine the most suitable treatment option for your specific concerns.
