With 4 million customers worldwide the Invisalign system must be doing something right, but why are so many people in Derby choosing these pioneering clear braces over traditional metal braces?

Here at the Raynesway Dental practice in Derby, we have long been cheerleaders of the Invisalign brand. Following treatment, our customers have straighter teeth, an enhanced smile and more confidence in their looks.

We’ve seen time and time again how Invisalign braces can transform peoples looks and lives without suffering a treatment period that is unnecessarily socially awkward. Let’s have a look at some of the main reasons why Invisalign braces are proving more popular than traditional braces.
1. Invisalign braces are removable. You’ll take them out to eat and brush your teeth. This means  you won’t get morsels of food caught on the wires of your braces, as is often the case with a fixed braces set up. Neither will you have to make extra effort to keep your teeth clean, because there will be no food caught on your brace. Made from moulded thermoplastic aligner trays, that fit over the teeth, Invisalign braces don’t contain any metal. Plus, you won’t be wearing them at meal times!
2. Invisalign braces are very discreet. The reason why you’re getting your teeth straightened is probably because you want to have more confidence in your smile. How frustrating then, to end up drawing more attention to your mouth because it is filled with prominent wires and brackets. Permanent fixed braces are hardly discreet. The Invisalign aligner trays are translucent. Friends and family will have to look hard to notice that you’re wearing any braces at all.

3. You’ll know how your teeth will look following Invisalign treatment before your first aligner tray is created. 3-D computer imaging will show you the journey your teeth are going to take, as well as their first positions and how your smile look.
