Teeth straightening has come a long way, gone are the days when you had no choice but you have fixed wired braces. Today there are lots of different options that are far more subtle to straighten your teeth. This has meant that far more professionals are finally able to get the smile they always dreamed of. No need to worry about garish braces in board meetings or awkward half smiles in family photos. You can straighten your smile with Invisalign in Leicester with no hassle, here’s why.

What are the benefits of Invisalign in Leicester?

Invisalign has been around a little while now and what it’s been able to do is open up the opportunity for orthodontic treatment for those who are well into their adulthood and working in professional careers. Not to mention it’s greatly reduced the number of teenagers having to suffer that teenage anxiety when it comes to the look of traditional braces.

Crystal Clear

The first and most obvious benefit of having Invisalign in Leicester it’s that they are what they say on the tin – pretty much invisible. They are clear trays that sit flush to the teeth and almost act as a mouth guard would but with the chunkiness. Most people in day-to-day life unless they’re really looking super closely at you, won’t be able to notice you’re wearing them. So you can continue with daily life without the worry of people staring at your braces.

In and out

Secondly they are removable – don’t get too excited you’re still very much expected to wear them everyday for at least twenty-two hours a day but it does mean you don’t need to think about editing your lifestyle once you start your treatment plan.

Being able to remove braces it’s great for two reasons, firstly because it means you don’t need to edit your diet in any way. Frequently we find at the practice people can damage their wired braces when eating foods that are slightly harder to chew, like apples and a lovely crunchy french stick, and let’s be honest who wants to live without delicious crusty fresh bread for six months? Nope? Us neither. With Invisalign in Leicester you don’t have to. Second because you are still able to get a really good clean of your teeth done. For lots of people once having fixed braces removed we find they are left with early stages of gum disease known as gingivitis. This is not to be worried about as it can be corrected with a quick clean from the hygienist but wouldn’t it be nice to not go through? Through removing your braces you’ll still be able to use floss and interdental to guard against plaque and tartar build up – the leading cause of gum disease and decay.


Depending on how much moving is needed to correct your smile will have an impact on the time it takes for your invisalign to work. In some cases the work can be completed in as little as twenty weeks. Easy peasy. And because you aren’t having pressure from wires the process in general tends to be a much more comfortable one.
