Sometimes braces are a necessary evil to correct skew and imperfect teeth, but traditional braces have long been a source of discomfort and embarrassment for many. Not only can traditional ‘railway track’ braces rob you of the confidence to smile, but they can be known to cause pain and inconvenience when eating. It can be enough to stop anyone from pursuing their want for straighter teeth and perfect smiles. But with Ultilign Invisible Braces, you can regain the confidence to smile with ease.

What are Ultilign Invisible Braces?

Invisible braces, also known as clear aligners, are orthodontic devices that are a transparent, plastic form of dental braces used to adjust teeth. But this innovative treatment goes beyond just appearance and has been revolutionized for a more comfortable, accurate treatment. Ultilign is a non-invasive treatment that has been shown to get results faster than traditional braces.

Clear aligners are custom-made each time specifically for your teeth. Each set of clear aligners straightens your teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are replaced every two weeks.

Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are used to make very precise adjustments to specific teeth and areas of your mouth with each new set of aligners, rather than the traditional method of applying constant pressure on all the teeth that have been wired in with traditional braces, which is uncomfortable, painful, and often a lengthier process. Ultilign invisible aligners also offer more precise adjustments to your teeth, moving your teeth little by little till they reach the project final position to give you that perfect smile.

Do Clear Aligners hurt?

No, unlike traditional ‘tin grin’ braces, your teeth aren’t ‘wired’ in with aligners. Instead, clear aligners are worn over your teeth like a plastic guard and can be removed to eat, drink, and look after your teeth with daily tooth care such as brushing, flossing, etc. This makes them significantly more convenient and comfortable than traditional braces, which can be difficult to eat with and can catch on the inside of your mouth to cause pain and bleeding. Clear aligners avoid tracks and brackets, negating this pain and discomfort.

The innovative design that allows aligners to make such precise changes as opposed to applying constant pressure to your teeth is also what makes Ultilign so comfortable. Aligners don’t compress your teeth together over long periods of time to force them into the correct position. It’s a precise process that aligns each tooth to the correct projected position.

Who can wear Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are best suited for teens and adults. But it’s important to remember that just because you can take your aligners off, doesn’t mean you should. The patient must be committed to wearing their aligners 24/7, only removing them to eat, drink, or for dental hygiene. This ensures your teeth will move into the correct position before your next set of aligners are introduced.

Millions of people worldwide have opted for Ultilign Invisible Braces over traditional braces, thanks to their comfort, discreet appearance, precision, and convenience. Depending on the severity of your case, you can have that dream smile in anywhere from 1 to 6 months. It’s well worth the effort for a smile you can be proud of, boosting your confidence. We believe everyone deserves to smile happily and confidently, showing off their pearly whites.
