In today’s modern society, having straight, beautiful teeth is more important than ever. Smiling plays an important part in aspects of our lives, from love to career and every social interaction in between. According to a National Smile Month survey, our smile is the top of the list of things we notice when meeting a new person, so it pays to try to look after them the best we can.
In an ideal world, we would all grow straight teeth that meet perfectly when we bite, but due to genetic factors, habits and in some cases accidental damage to our teeth, it’s usually not possible to keep teeth straight without intervention.

The advantages of Invisalign over traditional ‘train track’ braces
You have probably seen the traditional kind of braces, mostly on children and sometimes on adults. Whilst these braces are effective, they do come with a lot of downsides you may want to consider. Traditional fixed braces are designed for realigning the jaw, because of this, they apply more pressure to the teeth to get them to move. Many users have complaints of discomfort and pain, sometimes painkillers have to be prescribed.
With Invisalign in Luton, the custom-molded plastic trays are much more comfortable. A huge bonus is that they are removable, which makes it a lot easier to clean the teeth underneath. Another problem fixed brace users may struggle with. Overall, Invisalign treatment is a more modern, flexible treatment to fit in with your lifestyle, whilst helping you to achieve your dream smile.
