Has anyone ever heard of the dental treatment called invisalign? Apparently, it’s like invisible braces. Instead of the usual metal braces, with Invisalign, dentists use clear, removable aligners in order to correct teeth. A great advantage is for those very conscious persons who don’t like the look of metal braces on their teeth, second is that it’s removable so you don’t have to worry about food particles being stuck on the braces. A disadvantage though is that since it’s removable, it could take a longer time for the teeth to be corrected and according to Wikipedia, it’s far more expensive than traditional braces.

Dentists Glasgow and other parts of the UK as well as in the states already offer Invisalign so I’m just wondering if it is already available here. I have less than perfect lower teeth and I’m thinking of getting braces but the only thing that’s stopping me is the aesthetic disadvantage that metal braces offer.
