I often get asked if clear brace systems, such as Invisalign, are any good.
Yes absolutely or I wouldn’t use them! I know it sounds like one of those things which sounds too good to be true, but Invisalign is nothing new. It’s been used to straighten teeth for a very long time and is constantly being improved.
A big key with Invisalign which catches a lot of dentists out is that it does not work in the same manner as traditional braces. This is often one of the reasons dentists will say ‘Invisalign is no good’ or ‘you’re not suitable for them’. That’s not strictly true. I have straightened some very crooked smiles with Invisalign, you just need to program it correctly and respect how the system works.
The bottom line is that Invisalign works incredibly well, particularly when you can’t have train tracks due to a job or if you just don’t want to draw more attention to your smile
