Are Clear Aligners Worth The Investment?

10/11/2022

Invisalign and other clear aligners have become increasingly popular since their release in 1999 and provide a discrete method of teeth straightening to people of all ages. With the average Invisalign treatment starting from £2500, is it worth the investment over a cheaper and potentially faster alternative?

Invisalign is an advanced treatment that laser cuts clear aligner trays specifically for your teeth using high tech technology. This advancement in orthodontics provides many benefits for patients who don’t want to feel embarrassed by wearing traditional fixed braces that can make you feel self-conscious.

There are many benefits to investing in clear aligners, with the most spoken about being:

Easy Cleaning

A common complaint with fixed braces is how difficult it can be to keep your teeth and brackets clean, especially when eating out away from the comfort of home and a mirror! You don’t have this problem with clear aligners as they are removed before eating and can be easily cleaned by brushing gently with toothpaste and warm water.

It is recommended you clean your teeth after eating before reinstalling your aligner to prevent plaque and food debris irritating your gumline under the aligner.

Less Time At The Dentist

We understand visiting the dentist isn’t something everyone looks forward to. Unfortunately, with metal fixed braces many visits to the dentist are required for tightening of rubber bands and wires. This isn’t the case with Invisalign, as oftentimes you receive several phases of your retainers in advance so you don’t have to visit the dental office for a number of weeks or even months.

Resolve Complex Dental Issues

Whilst the most severe dental issues may require fixed braces, clear aligners can resolve a large array of complex dental issues including: overcrowding, crossbite, over or under bite, teeth with large spacing and misaligned teeth. Your dentist will be able to identify whether you are a candidate for clear aligners.
