Invisalign; we’re sure you’ve got a friend who wears it and that you have heard the name a lot. So, what is all the hype about? The truth is, Invisalign is being used to change somebody’s life every single day, one smile at a time.
Invisalign has improved more than 5 million smiles since it became available in 1997. And no other clear aligner company even comes close to that.
At Delight Dental Spa, we’re a Gold Invisalign Provider. This means that we are recognised by Invisalign for our experience. So if you’re not confident with your smile and are wondering if Invisalign is the answer, this article is for you.
What Invisalign Can Do for You
We use Invisalign to fix many issues. The purpose of the clear aligners is to correct the positioning and alignment of your teeth.
The orthodontic issues Invisalign is used to correct include:
- Overlapping, crooked or crowded teeth
- Overbites and underbites
- Gaps between teeth
Here are just some of the smiles that we have transformed using Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment at Delight Dental Spa. These are real patients treated by Dr Alice Hoang and Dr Bishoy Philobos at Delight Dental Spa.

Is Invisalign Right for You?
Thankfully, Invisalign is suitable for most people. In your consultation, your dentist will discuss your suitability to Invisalign. They will do this by addressing some of the following factors.
The Nature of Your Orthodontic Issues
During your consultation, your dentist will identify the nature of your orthodontic issues. However, the versatility of Invisalign means it will likely provide a solution for you. The dentists who say Invisalign can’t fix more complex problems just have not learned to do so yet.
Invisalign offers flexibility that traditional braces do not. This is because the clear aligners are removable. Because of this, they are a great option for people who speak in public often. Similarly, those who engage in contact sports are well suited to Invisalign.
Traditional braces are a lot more time consuming than Invisalign. You need fewer trips to the dentist with Invisalign! So, people leading busy lives with little time to spare make good candidates too.
At Delight Dental Spa, we believe that Invisalign is better suited to teenagers and adults. Though, every patient is different!
The Invisalign process is generally simple so long as you wear it long enough each day and don’t lose the aligners. This is why it can be tricky for children.
Why Our Customers Choose Invisalign
So, Invisalign straightens your teeth. But that’s not the only benefit this method provides. Here are some of the reasons many of our patients have decided that Invisalign is the right way for them.
The aligners are almost invisible whilst you’re wearing them. Especially when compared to metal braces! Invisalign can go unnoticed in your mouth. This gives our patients extra confidence during their tooth straightening process.
Easy to Keep Clean
As you can remove clear aligners, maintaining your dental hygiene is very simple. Brushing your teeth and keeping up a flossing routine is easy with the aligners out of your mouth. And the trays themselves can be easily cleaned whilst they are out too.
Dental hygiene is important. And keeping it up whilst going through a straightening process is key. Luckily, this is easy work when you use Invisalign.
Less Risk of Sports Injuries
Unlike metal braces, there are no brackets to be knocked off your teeth. As well as this, without brackets and wires, wearing a mouthguard is a breeze. So, you do not have to worry about injuries on the sports field.
Custom Made Comfort
Being wire-free is a huge step towards comfort. No sharp wires or brackets rubbing against your cheeks and lips makes for a much more comfortable experience than braces. Teeth realignment can sometimes be a lengthy process. So, you can’t underestimate the importance of comfort.
Love your food? We do too! And with Invisalign, there’s no need to avoid certain foods that you would need to avoid with braces. Just pop the aligners off, enjoy your meal, clean your teeth and pop the aligners back on.
The Invisalign process requires a lot less of your time. You do still need to visit you’re your dentist. However, the visits are less frequent than with metal braces. The appointments themselves also take less time. This means you can spend less time in the chair and more time on other things!
Good Dental Health
An overcrowded mouth with overlapping teeth is hard to clean well. Straight teeth allow better access to most surfaces of your teeth. This includes between your teeth. As a result, our teeth are cleaner, and our gums are healthier.
We hope you now have a better insight into what Invisalign is and what it can do for you. This method of straightening has many benefits, hence its popularity today. From comfort to aesthetics, to ease of use – Invisalign has it all.
