We take a look at some of the remarkable options in invisible braces Wimpole Street we offer patients at our dental practice.


Types of invisible braces to choose from


The first invisible orthodontic device we are asked about is Invisalign. Invisalign is an aligner-based teeth alignment system that has grown in popularity around the world in recent years. The system is unlike traditional braces in every way: it is made from clear transparent intuitive materials, a patient wears a series of aligner trays throughout treatment as opposed to just one device and these can be removed by the patient for an hour or two each day.


Seeing how this system works, it is easy to see why it has generated so much interest from patients. Other notable plus points this clear aligner system offers include its versatility (it can be used to treat a number of orthodontic issues), treatments plans are in many cases are of shorter duration and removing aligners during cleaning the mouth means teeth are easier to brush and floss.


As is with many other orthodontic appliances, there are pros and cons. What patients should take note of when deciding on Invisalign is that adhering strictly to the dentist’s guidelines on use is non-negotiable? Any deviation in not wearing the aligners for the required number of hours in a day or not keeping to the intervals in changing each aligner tray may compromise treatment outcomes.


The next invisible braces of interest are the fixed braces – fixed braces that look in every way like traditional braces but one. These braces are so designed as to be barely visible when worn on teeth. To make them less noticeable, these braces can be affixed to the back of teeth instead of the front.


Patients who can benefit from invisible fixed braces will need to remember to avoid certain foods like hard and sticky foods so as to reduce the risk of damage to these devices.


The next type of invisible braces we take a look at is Incognito braces. Progressive technologies have led to the development of Incognito braces that also sit on the back of teeth for a less noticeable look. This high-tech appliance is suitable to treat a range of different types of malocclusions.


A wide range of teeth-straightening appliances can only be to the benefit of patients as they can find one that is best suitable to their particular dental situation as well as preference. Professional consultation at Boston Orthodontics is most useful in helping patients choose the most appropriate orthodontic appliance for them.
