Heard that Invisalign is painful? Five Invisalign myths debunked by Buttercup 7 Day Dental
By Hannah Kemp 15th Apr 2020
When you are considering undertaking a procedure, especially a cosmetic one, you want to know the facts beforehand. Is it going to hurt? Are there any risks? Will it be expensive?
Of course, when looking for answers, the first place you are likely to go to is the internet. But, just like most things in life, the internet creates a biased view of almost everything, so it is likely that when you search for any cosmetic based procedures, you will turn up lots of horror stories.
Mix horror stories with dentistry and you have a very strong deterrent; many people are nervous about attending a dental practice in general and would not be keen to attend if they think there is a chance of error, especially when changing the appearance of their teeth.
But don’t fret! If you attend a professional practice for your cosmetic dental procedure, like treatment with invisible braces, then there will be no errors.
When searching for a surgery that can offer you a fantastic new smile with an invisible brace, like Invisalign Glasgow, come to Buttercup 7 Day Dental. Our team are experts in working with this adult-targeted invisible brace and can offer you a professional, painless experience that will leave you smiling.
Still a bit worried? In this article, our team will dispel the most common myths about Invisalign Glasgow, so you have a clearer picture of what this treatment involves.
Myth 1- Traditional braces are faster
On average, Invisalign Glasgow leaves you with a straighter smile in about six months, whereas traditional, orthodontic braces can take up to two years to straighten a smile.
So, no, traditional braces are certainly not faster!
Myth 2- Invisible braces don’t work
This is an odd myth!
Statistically, invisible braces create straighter smiles in over 97% of cases, Indeed, in five year follow-ups, many dental surgeries have found that those who undertook treatment with invisible braces still had a straight smile. Of course, that may vary depending on how closely you follow aftercare advice!
Myth 3- They are too expensive for most people
This is a common myth that deters some people from seeking treatment with invisible braces.
While the initial cost may seem a bit steep, in comparison to other braces, or even other cosmetic treatments, invisible braces are about the same price.
Also, our dental surgery can offer suitable patients payment plans or finance options, allowing you to break down the cost into monthly chunks.
Myth 4- They hurt
As invisible braces do not use force to straighten teeth (or tightening), they should not be uncomfortable.
If you notice an intense amount of discomfort while wearing them, please book a check-up with our team.
Myth 5- They cause speech issues
Having a removable tray in your mouth sounds like a recipe for speech issues.
But, while there may be an adjustment period at the beginning of your treatment, invisible braces should not cause any speech problems. If you are worried about your speech with invisible braces, contact our team.
