Is It Worth Getting Invisalign Treatment?

It is a question that we are often asked at Museum Dental when a member of the family needs orthodontic treatment. As people consider the options available, they will ask themselves the question whether it is worth having Invisalign treatment or whether traditional metal braces will do the job just as well.  Here are some of the reasons that our patients often make the decision to have their orthodontic treatment with Invisalign aligners.

It is true to say that traditional braces do the job very well but they are certainly less comfortable and definitely more visible than Invisalign braces.

At Museum Dental Suites, we are pleased to offer our patients clear braces and the clear Invisalign aligners as well as the traditional metal braces.  We have found that Invisalign aligners are an extremely popular choice and although it may be more expensive our patience say that they feel it's worth paying a little extra.  these are the features that they like: 

  • The fact that Invisalign aligners are made out of comfortable and clear plastic material. Traditional braces are less comfortable and have more of a propensity for food to be stuck in them under a lot more difficult to clean.  Invisalign can be removed to be cleaned so will always be fresh and clean with no food residue trapped within them.
  • The fact that they can be taken out for short periods, to eat to brush your teeth and even for the occasional special event.  Being able to remove the aligners means that you do not have to forgo your favourites foods while you were having the treatment and can keep your teeth clean and flossed as well.
  • The fact that they are virtually invisible and that no one will know you're wearing them unless you tell them. for those people who feel self-conscious wearing traditional braces or perhaps work in a customer facing position Invisalign aligners save them the embarrassment that traditional braces may cause and of course can be removed for that extra special occasion.
  • The fact that the aligners can be removed to brush the teeth and to floss meaning that oral hygiene is never compromised and the mouth always feels fresh and clean and that the natural teeth are never compromised.
  • The fact that treatment time may be shorter. Of course, each case is different and each set of aligners will be made precisely for and bespoke to the patient having the treatment.  Invisalign aligners are actually sets of aligners that are worn one after the other for a period of one to two weeks. They move the teeth gradually into the desired position as the sequence continues.  When your dentists instructions are followed precisely then the aligners will take from 6 to 18 months to achieve the final results which is considerably shorter than would be possible with traditional braces.
  • That they can treat different orthodontic problems. Invisalign aligners can treat many different issues.  Although it originally started off as a system designed to treat only simple issues of spacing it can now treat many other conditions such as : Gappy teeth, crowded teeth, a deep overbite, an open bite, the crossbite and where there is an excessive overjet

We have also added special features designed with teenagers in mind, like the compliance indicator that will indicate how long the aligners are being worn in order that younger patients  can get a gentle reminder if they're not wearing their Invisalign braces enough. The system will also offer eruption tabs which will allow for the growth of 2nd molars in teens leaving the space for unerupted teeth clear.  We all know that young people can be careless and may be more prone to losing aligners, and that is why we offer teens six sets of replacement aligners at no extra cost.   

As a Platinum Invisalign provider, we are very well aware that there can be a lot of questions around what the best treatment for you or your family might be. That is why we offer a free and no obligation consultation so that you can discuss with our dental experts what you are looking for from your treatment.  From that starting point we can go ahead and decide on the best and most effective treatment for you.

We think that you will be very pleased with how little impact Invisalign aligners make on your everyday life, and with the convenience of being able to remove them to eat and drink and for that special occasion. This is by far one of our most popular treatments and as we mentioned earlier many patients have told us that the extra cost is well worth paying for the freedom and flexibility of this treatment.

reviews-star.pngHighly recommend Museum Dental Suite. Their work is of the highest calibre, professional and friendly. I'm very thankful they for excellent aftercare advice and for making me relaxed and so well treated. I've recommended them to both my family and friends.


reviews-star.pngI have been undertaking a cosmetic treatment (Invisalign) for around eight months here, off the back of a recommendation of a friend who had the same treatment. The professionalism and perfectionism with which my treatment was delivered was outstanding, as was the general service and were all of the staff I encountered.

My dentist Dr. Wahab Shakir was particularly great, with a friendly, reassuring manner and an eye for detail. He always went above and beyond, without ever being asked.

I'm now almost at the end of my treatment and couldn't be more pleased with how treatment has gone. Given the service and end result I'd also consider it excellent value for money.

Keep up the good work Museum Dental Suites!


reviews-star.pngFirstly what a great dentist, all the staff were friendly and very helpful as this was my first time here.

I had called for an emergency appointment due to a sudden cracked tooth and Dr Wahab Shakir despite the end of day fast approaching (30 minutes till close) he said he would see me.

The treatment was not straight forward due to the crack but Dr Shakir after a lengthy time managed to save the tooth/restore it and prevent what I believe most dentists would have done which install a crown - Thank you!

Highly recommend this dentist and service and I am grateful for not only seeing me within an hour but also staying passed closing time and finally for doing a Stella job.


reviews-star.pngThis is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.


reviews-star.pngBest dentist ever hands down. Least painful and least scary experiences here (I'm usually really scared of going to the dentist, and even find the initial anaesthetic injection painful) - they really care about the patient, and making sure you're comfortable, results are also fab. Seriously can't imagine a better dentist!


reviews-star.pngAfter lots of research I was very happy with the results and the service at Museum Dental. 100% I would recommend to a friend. I couldn't be more pleased.

Look your best, feel your best, expect the best.
