Woman wearing invisible bracesWith advances in technology, more and more options are becoming available for those who have misaligned teeth. One of these options is Invisalign. This treatment provides a discreet and comfortable way to straighten the teeth. Patients wear clear aligners to shift their teeth into the correct position, helping to solve crowded, gappy, twisted and protruding teeth.

London, Invisalign cost varies depending on treatment, these include Invisalign i7, Invisalign Teen, and Invisalign Lite, for patients with more complicated cases. In London, dentists such as Graham Tinkler offer a whole range of bespoke options.

Pros and cons

People opt for Invisalign as it is offers a more comfortable alternative to traditional braces. Patients can see an improvement in their teeth, whilst the near invisible nature of the retainers means that other people need not know they are going through the treatment. Suited for many lifestyles, from self-conscious teenagers who want to project the best version of themselves, to adults who find them convenient for their career, Invisalign may be the answer to worries about formal and social situations.

As with all advantages, Invisalign braces come with a cost. Whilst people with mild to moderate misalignments are eligible, the dentist may not advise them for patients with more serious problems. Additionally, they are not suitable for the less disciplined. Because Invisalign clear aligners are removable for eating, drinking and cleaning, patients need to be sure not to lose them, and to be put them back straight after eating. Lost aligner may be costly to replace and lost time means the teeth may not have enough sustained pressure on them to shift.

Whilst smiles come free, unfortunately, goods and services do not. In London, Invisalign cost can vary from £1,995 to £3,500 depending on treatment. The price will vary depending on number of aligners required, the type of Invisalign treatment chosen, and also the practice. Some do not include everything the patient needs in their price, to make it seem lower. The individual’s, the degree to which their teeth need aligning, and how many will be required during the process of the treatment. In London, Invisalign cost, for many, is worth the advantages that it has over others’ treatment.
