Benefits of Invisalign dentistry over traditional Putney Hills braces

Patients in the Putney Hills area who want to straighten their teeth to improve their smile may be turned off by the idea of undergoing traditional orthodontic services. Metal brackets and wires covering the teeth is not the ideal solution for teenagers and adults. Thankfully there have been advances in orthodontic technology, and patients can visit Gentle Dental Putney for a revolutionary treatment called Invisalign.

Invisalign is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that realigns smiles with the use of clear aligner trays. These aligner trays are made of high-quality, professional plastic which is moulded to fit the patient’s dental arch. A complete series of trays are made and each one is worn for approximately two weeks before being replaced with the next one in the series. Over time, the teeth gently move into a more aesthetic alignment and patients can wear a retainer to maintain the results. In many cases, patients can see improved results in less than a year.

Invisalign is often considered over traditional braces for several reasons.


The most popular feature of the Invisalign treatment is the ability to improve the smile without the appearance of traditional braces. Teenagers and adults enjoy the self-confidence that comes with the clear aligner trays, and others are often unaware patients are undergoing treatment. These discreet trays are typically preferred over metal covering the smile.


The plastic aligner trays are smooth and comfortable. Patients slip the aligner trays over the dental arch and wear them throughout the day and night. They do not scratch or irritate the inside of the mouth as traditional orthodontics can.


Invisalign aligners are comparable in cost with traditional braces. When patients have the option of clear aligner trays versus brackets and wires glued on their teeth, many choose Invisalign.

Easy to Use

Invisalign requires patients to follow the treatment plan in order to see the results they desire. Thanks to the aligner trays being easy to use and simple to clean, many patients see great success and improvement in their smile when following the instructions closely.


Invisalign aligner trays are effective in shifting natural teeth into a more aesthetic alignment, along with readjusting the bite when necessary.
