The thought of wearing braces has been a daunting prospect for many people over the years. Having a mouth full of unsightly metal isn’t something that is embraced by the masses, and the stigma of wearing so-called “train track” braces has been around for as long as most people can remember.
However, with invisible aligners the stigmas of the past have now been banished, as invisible aligners are invisible to those around you. So no matter what your age you could achieve that perfectly straight smile you’ve always wanted, without the worry of having a mouth filled with metal.
Boost your confidence
Invisible aligners can help to boost your confidence and achieve straighter teeth. Invisible aligners treatment consists of a variety of aligners that will be changed during two-week intervals. The reason for this is because the aligners will slowly move your teeth into their correct position; your teeth will constantly change position resulting in the need for more than one aligner. The number of aligners that will be required during the treatment varies from patient to patient depending on the treatment needed.
Invisible aligners are also removable, which makes it much easier to eat, drink, maintain a good oral hygiene routine and keep your aligners in perfect condition. However, to get the best results in the quickest amount of time it is advised that the aligners are worn for a minimum of 22 hours per day, and only removed if required.
So if you want straighter teeth and a metal brace isn’t your cup of tea, then why not contact Dublin18 Dental Care near Stillorgan and learn more about invisible aligners to see what we can do for you.

What are invisible aligners?
Invisible aligners are an orthodontic system, which uses a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners to move the teeth into the correct position. The aligners are almost invisible, meaning you can get the smile of your dreams without worrying about anyone else even noticing that you are wearing braces.
How are invisible aligners different?
Invisible aligners are different to conventional braces in many ways; for starters, the aligners are removable, not fixed to the teeth and they are virtually invisible. Invisible aligners work by encouraging the teeth to move into the desired position by using carefully designed aligners; each aligner is shaped slightly differently and by the time the last aligner is removed, the teeth should be straight. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and then replaced by the next aligner in the series. The aligners are manufactured based on your dentist’s instructions and impressions and photographs of your smile. Dublin18 Dental Care also uses the latest imaging software to show patients how their smile will look at the end of treatment.
Am I a suitable candidate?

Invisible aligners are suitable for patients of all ages and it can treat a range of different orthodontic problems, including crowding, spaces between the teeth and misaligned teeth. If you have a very complex orthodontic prescription, you may be advised to consider an alternative treatment, which can produce more movement.

When Sartre wrote “hell is other people,” he was probably referring to teenagers. Some long for the carefree days of childhood. But others, however, were more than happy to leave the republic of adolescence firmly behind us. The abject cruelty of which those under voting age are capable still sends shivers down many people’s spine, and it is often amongst such school yard tyranny that teens are first made to wear braces. That adolescent fear can leave its mark, even among non-brace wearers, and full grown adults can sometimes find themselves irrationally fearing the brace. But… what if no one knew you were wearing one?
The invisible brace
Invisible aligners are virtually unnoticeable clear braces, and they can help one achieve a naturally straight smile without any apparent change in appearance.
Advantages of invisible aligners
Aside from being invisible, they also provide a more comfortable treatment experience than traditional metal braces which can inflame and irritate the gums. Invisible aligners are also more convenient than their metal & wire counterparts as they are removable, thus bypassing the age old complaint of getting food trapped between wire and elastic. This ability to remove invisible aligners also helps with maintaining oral hygiene during treatment, something which can be neglected with metal braces and lead to future problems.
How it works
Treatment via invisible aligners consists of several clear aligners which will be changed every fortnight. Each aligner worn will gradually shift the teeth to their desired location. It is important to note that, although invisible aligners are suitable for most patients,this treatment may not be appropriate in some severe cases. A patient’s suitability, however, will easily be assessed during the initial consultation. It is following this consultation, if the patient is deemed suitable, that a patient would have several photographs and a mould of their mouth taken. It is from these images that a 3D model of their mouth will be produced. From this a simulation of a patient’s desired mouth position can be constructed, and the aligners produced will be based on this model.

What are the other benefits of invisible aligners?
As invisible aligners are removable you are able to eat and brush your teeth without the usual concerns over dental hygiene. Fixed braces trap plaque and food debris, which then rests against the surface of the tooth causing tooth decay. This doesn’t happen with invisible aligners, as you are able to take them out during mealtimes, so no food becomes stuck and you can soak them in retainer cleaner and clean the entire surface of your teeth with ease.
Also, as invisible aligners do not require dental cement to attach them to your teeth, so you will not cause any damage to the front of your teeth, which can occur with fixed brace treatments.
