Invisalign Leicester, also known as invisible braces, are a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign are a clear set of custom made aligners made of plastic which are created to adjust and straighten the teeth. We at Smile Care Dental Clinic offer many dental treatments and the Invisalign treatment is popular among many individuals. These aligners are designed in a way that is transparent; this is a great option for those who want to go through the treatment discreetly. Invisalign has the ability to straighten the teeth without the need for metal wires, over a short period of time. If you are interested in Invisalign Leicester, do not hesitate to book a consultation with our dental clinic.

How does the Invisalign treatment work?

The Invisalign treatment works incrementally to straighten the teeth; the invisible braces are changed regularly ranging from 1-2 weeks. This is decided upon from analysing the movements the aligner has produced. It is important to get regular check-ups every 6 weeks so that we can assess the progress of our patients’ teeth. It is a recommended practice that individuals wear their clear set of aligners for approximately 20 hours a day for the best results. These aligners can be removed when a patient decides to eat or clean their teeth.

Benefits of Invisalign

There are many benefits when undergoing the Invisalign treatment, these benefits can vary from functional to aesthetic advantages. There are many more life benefits when proceeding with this treatment.

Clear and transparent

One of the major benefits when receiving Invisalign Leicester is the fact that the Invisalign trays are transparent. This means they are created in a clear format; this comes as an advantage for those who do not want to be associated with metal braces. The aligners do not detract from the facial features of their wearer and a patient can undergo Invisalign treatment with discretion. This is a great alternative for adults and teens and for those in professional careers.


The clear aligners are created from smooth plastic; this therefore makes the braces much more easy to wear. Since Invisalign does not require metal wires and brackets like traditional metal braces it is much easier to care for. There will be no extruding edges to bother the wearer.

Improved oral hygiene and cleanliness

Invisible braces are removable; this means that a patient can remove their braces when they are ready to brush and floss. Once the individual has cleaned their teeth they can place Invisalign in the mouth once again. It is also highly advised that the aligners are cleaned frequently;  this is to ensure there is no build-up of any bacteria. This can be done by simply removing the invisible braces and washing and rinsing them whilst  brushing them with a soft toothbrush. This is a huge benefit in terms of oral hygiene. The mouth will remain clean by following these vital steps leading to a healthy mouth. It is highly significant to maintain the health of the gums and teeth. At the same time the aligner straightens the teeth which in turn will lead an individual to get their desired result in the end.
