Line up! Line up! Getting your teeth in line with clear braces

If you have misaligned teeth, you may have been putting off going to the dentist about them. Your plan may even be to bury your head in the sand forever and just put up with the misalignment. The problem here is that this strategy doesn’t really alleviate the frustration or low self-esteem you may be developing about your smile and, if that is happening, you won’t be smiling anyway. There are now many ways in which dentists can help you to improve your smile with convenient treatments that are non-invasive and often unnoticeable to other people. Clear braces W1 are the key to getting a beautiful smile without raising eyebrows!


One treatment that may be suitable is Incognito. This involves having brackets and wires which are attached behind the teeth instead of in front of them. This means that, when you smile, nobody can see your braces at all as everything about them is hidden away behind your teeth. There is a lite option that is only attached to front teeth, rather than the whole row, depending on the severity of your alignment issues. These lingual braces are suitable for those who have adult teeth. They are custom-made to fit the shape of your teeth using computer technology so you should have maximum comfort with this appliance.


Another option is Invisalign, which comprises clear plastic aligners. They are worn over the teeth like a gum shield, but they are far sleeker and made bespoke to fit your mouth. They apply pressure to the teeth to gently move them into the desired position over time. Results can be achieved in as little as 6 to 18 months. The aligners can be removed so you don’t need to wear them when you eat or drink. You can also remove them for up to 2 hours a day, which allows you flexibility in choosing when you take them out, whether it’s for sports or a special event. 

Like the lingual braces of Incognito, the beauty of Invisalign is that the clear plastic aligners can barely be seen when worn. This gives patients the confidence to wear them for 22 hours a day, without feeling self-conscious or anxious about other people pointing them out. 

Another benefit of choosing Invisalign for mild to moderate alignment issues is that, before you get started, you can have an animation made of your mouth to show you what your teeth will look like after treatment. This can give you the motivation you need to wear the aligners and start on your journey to getting a beautiful smile.

What next?

If you are interested in finding out how you can realign your teeth, book in with your dentist for an initial consultation. They will give your mouth a thorough examination to determine what treatment options would work for your alignment issues. You can ask any questions you need about the treatments suggested and make an informed decision.

So, get in line for a great smile with clear braces and nobody will know the secret to your success (unless you tell them, of course)!
