3 Things You Should Know About the Invisalign System

Invisalign bracesThe Invisalign system continues to gain popularity all over the United Kingdom, and for many good reasons. If you are planning to undergo an orthodontic treatment using the traditional metal bracket-and-wire braces, you might want to know how and why Invisalign may actually be a better option.

These facts about Invisalign will help you set realistic expectations:

How much it costs

Invisalign prices generally have the same range as the traditional fixed braces, although your chosen provider still needs to perform a thorough assessment of your oral health. For minor teeth or bite adjustments, expect the cost to start at around £1,500. For a more comprehensive treatment, set your expectations to anywhere between £2,500 and £4,500.

The primary difference between Invisalign and other orthodontic appliances

Invisalign has the same goal as that of other orthodontic appliances: to straighten the teeth or correct the misaligned bite of a patient. However, there are far more differences, particularly when you compare Invisalign clear aligners with traditional metal braces. Invisalign uses clear, virtually invisible plastic aligners, as opposed to the metal brackets and wires in traditional braces. Another major difference is that you can remove the aligners, something you cannot do with conventional braces.

The problems it can treat

Invisalign has become an extremely popular alternative to metal braces because it can treat almost everything that the latter can. Whether you have gapped teeth, overcrowded teeth, overbite, underbite, open bite, or cross bite, your clear plastic aligners will correct any of these issues and give you a more beautiful, healthier smile within a few months.
