Want to know why Invisalign is so popular? 5 reasons from Archway Dental Surgery

With more adults than ever before choosing to undertake orthodontic treatment, certain braces and aligners have undoubtedly become more popular than others.invisalign-cornwall

Why? Because when it comes to orthodontics, adults have different requirements to children; any brace needs to be comfortable to wear, as well as visually discreet. It will need to offer a faster treatment time (if possible), while also being good value for money.

With such a list of demands from a simple orthodontic appliance, one could think that no such brace could ever exist. However, such an aligner has been created and is currently the most popular brace amongst adults and teenagers.

And when you decide you want to undertake this brace, come to Archway Dental Surgery. Our team has helped thousands of patients to straighten their smiles with Invisalign in Cornwall, and know all the advantages that there are to choosing this aligner.

So, why is Invisalign in Cornwall one of our most popular aligners among adults? Read on to find out!


While you may have already heard this, one of the key reasons for the success of Invisalign in Cornwall is because it is removable.

Why is this a popular feature? Because it allows you to take it out when you are eating food, giving a talk at work, or even when you are going on a date. And as it can be removed, it will not impinge on your oral hygiene.


The basis of this invisible aligner is simple; simply wear each aligner tray for around 2 weeks, switch to the next one and visit our dentist at Archway Dental every 6-8 weeks. No tightening, no additional trips to the hygienist and no fiddly wires, this brace is straightforward to use.


And, as there is no tightening associated with this brace, it is more comfortable to wear.

While there may be some initial pressure once you put this brace in, this will be short-lived, and may also occur when you switch between aligners.

But as this brace uses no metal to push on your teeth, there is no overwhelming feeling of pressure in your jaw, allowing you to undertake this orthodontic treatment without discomfort.

If you do notice any intense discomfort at any stage of wearing this brace, contact our team for a check-up!


Even children aren’t fond of wearing braces for extended periods of time and so, it is reasonable to assume adults aren’t either.

Luckily, due to the design of this invisible brace, the average treatment time ranges from between 6-9 months, meaning you won’t have to endure endless months of dental check-ups and other appointments.


Finally, the reason this brace has boomed in popularity is that, as its name suggests, it is invisible!

Made from clear plastic, it slots over your teeth and seamlessly blends in, perhaps adding an additional shimmer to your smile. It is easy to clean (run it under a lukewarm tap) and easy to remove when you need to. What’s not to like?
