The Benefits Of Removable Aligners

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

header_image4Today’s orthodontic patients have an amazing array of treatment options to choose from, including fixed and removable appliances. In the last few years removable aligner have become very popular, but what are the benefits and are they a suitable match for you?

The benefits of removable aligners

Removable aligners are orthodontic appliances, which are designed to straighten the teeth with maximum convenience and simplicity. Aligners slide over the teeth in a similar way to a sports mouth guard and they can be taken out and replaced very easily. Removable braces offer a host of benefits, including:

  • Better oral health: food and bacteria tend to get trapped in braces, so removable aligners are a much better option when it comes to oral hygiene, as you can continue to brush as normal and you can take the aligners out to give the a good clean.
  • Easy eating: with removable aligners, you can continue to eat as normal, without any worries about getting food trapped in your braces, breaking your braces or limiting the range of foods you can eat. When you’re about to eat, you simply remove your aligners and enjoy your meal in the same way as you did before you started treatment.
  • Increased flexibility: with removable aligners, you have much more freedom an flexibility than you do with fixed braces; however, it is important to remember to wear them for the recommended time each day to ensure you get the best out of your braces.

Are removable aligners a good choice for me?

Removable aligners are suited to many patients and they can provide an effective solution to many common orthodontic issues. Generally speaking, they are best suited to those who need minor or moderate levels of correction; if you have complex needs, which require intensive correction, a fixed brace may be better. Your dentist will be able to discuss viable options with you once they have analysed your bite and examined your teeth.

The Benefits of Removable Orthodontics

2904387_blogRemovable orthodontics are increasingly popular and it’s no wonder! They offer a host of benefits for patients of all ages with all kinds of orthodontic prescriptions. Here are just some of the advantages you can enjoy if you opt for a removable brace:


With a removable brace, you can enjoy much greater flexibility than with a fixed brace, as you can take your brace out whenever you want to. It is important to stress that you should wear your brace according to the instructions from your dentist and you shouldn’t spend long periods of time without wearing your brace. However, many patients enjoy the freedom of being able to take their brace out quickly and simply.


Removable braces are very convenient because they have minimal impact on day to day actions that might be made more difficult by wearing a fixed brace, such as cleaning your teeth and eating. With a removable brace, you simply take the brace out, eat your dinner normally and then pop your brace back in.

Improved oral hygiene

With a removable brace, you can continue to clean your teeth in the same way as you did before you started treatment. It is much easier to clean your teeth without a brace in place than it is to try and steer a toothbrush around brackets and wires. This improves oral hygiene and reduces the risk of dental diseases, including tooth decay and gum disease. It’s also very easy to keep the brace clean as you can simply remove it and rinse it out.


Many removable braces offer incredibly natural looking and discreet aesthetics that will help you to feel more confident during the treatment process. Invisible aligners, such as Invisalign, straighten the teeth without any impact on the look of the smile. On the other hand, the Inman Aligner is not invisible, but it offers a much less noticeable aesthetic than fixed braces.


Removable braces tend to be more comfortable than fixed braces because they don’t have bands or wires that need tightening and many contain no metal parts.
