We all want to have perfectly aligned teeth, but that may require corrective treatment for some. Today, metal braces are no longer the only option for those seeking dental improvement.
In Bangkok, Invisalign is the preferred teeth straightening treatment, as the near-invisible retainers are virtually undetectable by others. For many, the clear or invisible braces treatments in Bangkok do not instill the wearer with as much confidence to flash a smile as Invisalign does.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign uses a series of corrective acrylic aligners to straighten teeth. Every few weeks, you will meet with our expert dentists at About Tooth Dental Clinic and receive a new set of aligners up until the treatment is completed.
During your first visit, we will take a 3D scan of your mouth in order to plan out how the Invisalign treatment will work. Together with our dentist, you will review the strategy to move your teeth into a more uniform alignment before beginning treatment. Our dentists will create your first set of Invisalign corrective aligners and instruct you to wear them all day, except when eating or cleaning your teeth.
Depending on the amount of correction your teeth require, treatment may include around 20 different sets of retainers and may take up to one year to complete.
What can Invisalign Treat?
Invisalign is a suitable treatment for many dental issues, including overcrowding, crooked teeth, and shrinking gaps between teeth. While Invisalign is a preferred treatment in lieu of metal braces, our dentists may inform you that your teeth require different corrective treatments.

Pros and Cons of Invisalign
Many people prefer Invisalign because it is a more subtle way of correcting one’s teeth. Adults, in particular, may not want to wear metal braces as they may feel shy about wearing them in professional or social settings.
Aesthetic advantages aside, there are many other benefits to wearing Invisalign clear aligners, including, but not limited to:
- Better Dental Hygiene – Traditional metal braces are affixed to the teeth in a way that makes it cumbersome to perform thorough dental hygiene practices. Invisalign aligners are easily removable, meaning that your teeth cleaning and hygiene routine do not have to change.
- Daily Comfort – Simply put, Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than braces. Should there be any discomfort, Invisalign aligners can be quickly removed for instant relief. In addition, you won’t need to eliminate certain foods from your diet like you would if you were to wear braces.
- Streamlined Process – Because Invisalign uses 3D modeling to predict teeth movement, Invisalign has less risk of error, ultimately making the process more efficient and the results as expected.
Despite these benefits, it is worth noting that the cost of Invisalign in Bangkok may exceed that of metal braces. Additionally, you may incur extra costs if you lose or damage your aligners.
