Do invisible braces really work?

It seems too good to be true. Braces that are almost imperceptible yet straighten your teeth. Well, at Vogue Dental Care, we are here to tell you that it is not too good to be true, and already millions of people have straight white smiles thanks to this treatment.

Invisible braces in Luton are a popular choice, and you might be wondering what the difference is between these and regular braces. They both work the same way in principle, gentle pressure against teeth over time to realign them. The difference as you might have already guessed is visibility. There are several types of invisible braces a patient can choose from, including Cfast braces, inside braces, and clear aligners.

Types of invisible braces in Luton

Cfast braces are a rapid treatment achieving results in as little as six months. The speed stems from focusing solely on the front teeth. The teeth at the back can have more than one root and are denser than the teeth at the front, adding considerable time to the realigning process. Cfast uses a combination of clear brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires placed on the front of the teeth to provide an aesthetically pleasing short treatment procedure. 

Quick treatments are always a bonus. However, for patients that need the realignment of both the front and the back teeth, Cfast braces are not a suitable option. Clear aligners, on the other hand, offer a subtle solution for treatments while achieving conspicuously remarkable results. The most popular of clear aligner treatments is Invisalign.

Invisalign is a virtually invisible plastic tray that is designed by sophisticated software after a 3D image is taken of your mouth. This allows for a detailed treatment plan targeting individual teeth for precise movement to achieve the desired smile of the patient. The treatment works by using a series of customised removable aligners throughout the treatment. They are clouding resistant and are a comfortable fit with no wires that can break or poke your gums. Additionally, they are removable for eating and maintaining oral health.

Disadvantages of invisible braces

There are many advantages of using invisible braces, such as subtle, effective treatments that produce life long results. However, like all things in life, some disadvantages come with this kind of treatment.

Cfast treatment is highly selective in the patients they would suit. Cfast does not work on the back teeth and is limited to focusing on the front. In addition to this, they are not completely invisible and are slightly noticeable.

The disadvantages of Invisalign are less general and more dependent on the personality of the patient. Invisalign suits self-disciplined and motivated individuals. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, if the patient does not wear aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours, they will compromise timeliness of their treatment plan. Also, if the patient is somewhat disorganised, they risk misplacing their Invisalign aligners when they remove them to eat, drink, brush, or floss.

However as you can see the disadvantages of these braces are far outweighed by their advantages so if you are interested in having invisible braces in Luton, then contact us at Vogue Dental Care.
