Discrete ingenuity

Historically, patients who are seeking orthodontic realignment treatments often had to sacrifice their outward appearance for the sake of progress. This was primarily due to the limited methodologies that were available, leaving few with any options other than traditional metal braces. These could often cause discomfort and could greatly affect the patient’s appearance. Today however, treatments such as Incognito in Weybridge afford patients the ability to undertake essential dental realignment without anyone noticing. Treatments such as these have only come about through decades of design ingenuity and refinement and the vastness of materials and methodologies that have become available through the age of technological prowess we live.

Going incognito

Incognito in Weybridge is a modern solution to dental realignment, which negates the issues faced by those who undertake conventional methods, such as their outward appearance being affected and thus their self-esteem and confidence suffering as a result. This is achieved by adopting a similar method to traditional braces, in that the patient’s teeth are realigned by using fused sockets and a metal wire — however, what separates Incognito from its predecessor, is that the wire and sockets are fused to the backs of the patient’s teeth and thus are practically invisible from the front.

Hidden wonders

The Incognito Lingual Bracket system is the only 100% custom fixed appliance system for invisible braces within the UK. This means that each installation of these braces is entirely unique to each patient. By utilising cutting-edge 3D rendering technology, an entirely accurate digitised impression of the contours and shapes of each patient’s teeth can be made with ease. This allows for our expertly trained team of orthodontics to install these braces, constructed from arch-wires, bonding trays and brackets, uniquely for each patient. Patients seeking this treatment from us, here at Weybridge Orthodontics, are afforded the ability to smile to their fullest potential, without having to suffer any potential embarrassment that may arise from exposing teeth that are misaligned, or from exposing large metal braces. Additionally to this, patients who choose such a solution, can also enjoy all the luxuries that conventional braces do not allow, such as enjoying any food without fear of it becoming lodged within their braces.

Orthodontics in Weybridge

Aligned with the times

Here at Weybridge, we strive to utilise some of the most innovative and cutting-edge technologies available within orthodontics. To understand this quest for dental perfection, it helps to know a bit about the history of the discipline. For over 10,000 years there has been an active effort made by numerous cultures to improve the alignment of patients’ teeth. Whilst the orthodontics of the Egyptians are crude and rudimentary by today’s standards, they indicate that the correlation between straight and clean smiles and wealth and prosperity are nothing new. Throughout the years, the field of orthodontics evolved and developed, each civilisation making use of the materials and methodologies that were afforded to them from their era. Conventional orthodontics, as they are recognised today, only began to take shape around the year 2,000 when NASA replaced common titanium wire braces with heat activated nickel-titanium. This ushered in a new age in the development of orthodontics, as braces were no longer so cumbersome and uncomfortable. From then on, an increased focus was made to make braces less visible and the next leap in their development came when Zia Chishti launched the Invisalign retainer, which replaced the need for wires and brackets with a removable, plastic retainer. 

Our services

Those who are seeking orthodontics in Weybridge, will find all their dental needs met with ease, by our trained and professional staff here at Surrey Dental. Initially, prior to beginning any treatment, new patients must first undertake a friendly, informal consultation with our staff. This is done to establish which treatment option is best suited to the needs of the patient, as well as establish a relationship that is built on trust, respect and understanding. Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we offer a comprehensive range of treatments across all fields of orthodontics. These include the installation of discrete orthodontic aligners such as Invisalign retainers, as well as more conventional methods such as ceramic, fused braces, known as Clarity aligners. Whatever the patient feels is the best option for them, our in-house staff will be on hand to clarify and explain the basis of each method of orthodontics in Weybridge. Seeking orthodontic treatments can have a massively beneficial and positive effect on the self-esteem and confidence of those who require them, as they need not be concerned with exposing teeth which are misaligned or overlapping, and can smile to their fullest potential without any care.

Invisalign in Weybridge

How does this system work?

One of the most popular treatments we provide is the installation of Invisalign in Weybridge. This is a revolutionary alternative to conventional, fused metal braces, which are often largely uncomfortable and can have a largely negative impact on the outward appearance of those undertaking it. Invisalign in Weybridge, however, replaces fused brackets and metal wires with a removable, comfortable plastic retainer. This ingenious method was initially created by Stanford University graduate, Zia Chishti. By creating a unique fitted retainer, constructed from a patented ‘SmartTrack’ plastic, which is utilised for it’s uniquely durable, yet malleable nature, Chishti negated the need for obvious, uncomfortable metal brackets. When worn over the course of treatment – which varies depending on the severity of each patient’s needs – but typically lasts around twelve months, the retainer uses specifically placed pressure points to gradually push the patient’s teeth back into their correct specifications. 

Your treatment journey

Anyone seeking Invisalign in Weybridge would initially begin their journey by undertaking an informative, non-committal, no obligation consultation with one of our specialists. This is done to establish the extent of treatment needed, as well as to cover the basic costs of treatment, and to let our patients know what they can expect the results to be. Thereafter, a unique 3D rendering of the insides of the patient’s mouth would be created, to allow for a perfectly accurate retainer to be constructed, that fits the contours of their mouths perfectly. From then on, the patient can take the retainer home, and wear it at a time which is convenient to them – such as when sleeping at home.

Invisible ingenuity

One of the main benefits of Invisalign in Weybridge, is that when worn, the retainer is practically invisible. This may explain the procedure’s popularity over conventional methods of orthodontics with young adults and teenagers. This is due to the fact that this solution affords them the ability to undertake essential dental realignment, without attracting any unwanted attention from their peers or colleagues. Those who seek Invisalign in Weybridge can find their self confidence and esteem greatly increases after completing their course of treatment, as they can enjoy a straighter and more healthy looking smile – without the pain of wearing traditional fused metal braces.

What exactly is Orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontics is a field of dentistry, that works on the alignment of the teeth and jaw and ensures that the bite is working correctly. Teeth being misaligned is extremely common, due to the complexity of teeth, and due to genetic factors, such as the wisdom teeth slowly becoming obsolete to modern humans. It is important that your teeth are straight to ensure that they are biting correctly, and not putting any strain or eroding any other teeth. If you have any concerns or queries about orthodontics, then do not hesitate to contact us at Weybridge Orthodontics, and we will be able to give you more information on what you need. Our patients are our number one priority, and we want to ensure that you know exactly what treatments you need, and are brought up to speed on any extra costs or information.

Incognito in Weybridge

Why is orthodontics important?

Having straight teeth is important not just for cosmetic reasons. A misaligned jaw can have many dangers, such as putting more strain on several areas of the teeth and causing tooth erosion. Tooth erosion can be dangerous, as it can pose a serious risk of cavities, as your enamel will have been worn down and be less protective.

Fixed Braces

One of the most common forms of orthodontic treatment are fixed braces. Fixed braces offer an extremely practical solution to crooked teeth, and are available for all ages, and can be extremely effective. One of the main benefits of fixed braces is that they are one of the fastest ways to correct teeth, and if teeth are corrected at the right time, you can have straight teeth in a matter of months.

Some of the downsides to having fixed braces is the damage that they can cause the gums, and they can also be painful or irritable to the teeth, as they pull them into the correct position.

What is Incognito treatment?

If you are looking for Incognito in Weybridge, then this is something that Weybridge Orthodontics offers as an alternative to regular fixed braces. If you are looking for an alternative to fixed braces, then we would highly recommend Incognito. Weybridge Orthodontics is committed to providing the best possible service to you, so we understand that fixed braces may not be the most desirable option. Fixed braces can often be associated with being a teenager, so many adults may be averse to this kind of treatment entirely. Also, if their teeth are only slightly crooked, then they may feel as if fixed braces are not worth the hassle.

Incognito offers a fantastic solution, and works as a fixed braces on the back of the teeth, so you’ll be able to reap all the benefits of regular braces, but they won’t be visible to everyone you meet, and you won’t have to worry about feeling self-conscious about your dental treatment. If you are interested, and looking for Incognito in Weybridge, then we would highly recommend booking a consultation at our practice.

Crooked teeth

Crooked teeth occur for many reasons, most of them genetic. Some crookedness can be caused by behaviour such as thumb sucking, however it is generally accepted that those with severely crooked teeth are just unfortunate, and will need to see an orthodontist, a dentist who specialises in the straightening of teeth and the alignment of the jaw. If you are looking for an orthodontist in Weybridge, then we would be a particularly viable option.

Braces

The most effective way to fix crooked teeth is to use braces. If you are looking for an orthodontist in Weybridge who can fix crooked teeth, then you have come to the right place! At Weybridge Orthodontics we have a wide range of braces, each with specific advantages and disadvantages. If you are in for a consultation, then do not hesitate to ask your dentist for the full range of options, and they will be happy to help.

Fixed brace

These are probably the most well-known form of braces, and are most commonly seen amongst teenagers, whose teeth are being corrected as soon as they have erupted. Fixed braces are available for anyone, and still stand to this day as one of the most effective ways to straighten teeth, sometimes straightening teeth in a matter of months. However, many adults are averse to fixed braces simply due to the association that they have with being a teenager. Therefore, other, more discreet options are needed.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a popular form of treatment that utilises clear plastic braces to align the teeth. This treatment is popular, as they are extremely difficult to see once they are being worn, as the braces are completely transparent. While they are not quite as effective in some cases as fixed braces, their total anonymity means that they are extremely popular amongst adults. The braces need to be replaced every two weeks, which essentially substitutes the tightening that fixed braces use.

Invisalign braces are also fully removable, which makes them an ideal option. This means that you are free to eat and drink whatever you want, and not be restricted by the brace. The braces are effective if they are worn for over 20 hours a day, which means you are free to take them out whenever you like. If you are interested in Invisalign, and other orthodontics in Weybridge, then do not hesitate to give us a call.

Cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is the practice of repairing one’s teeth, and administering treatments in order to provide a better look to the teeth. This can be anything from braces to teeth whitening. Often, cosmetic dentistry can tie over into general dentistry and vice versa. This is because teeth that are performing their best look their best, and a healthy smile will look the most natural and appealing above all else. At Weybridge Orthodontics, we understand the importance of a smile, and consider all our patients to be our number one priority. Dentistry is about improving the quality of life, which means improving your smile and your general comfort with your own teeth.

Invisalign in Weybridge

Fixed braces

Fixed braces are a common option for teenagers and are one of the most effective forms of treatment for your teeth to be realigned. Fixed braces work by bonding a join to each tooth, and passing through a metal wire, which is then periodically tightened, in order to pull the teeth into position. Fixed braces are also an option for adults whose teeth are severely crooked, and need drastic attention.

Invisalign

Many adults are not fond of the idea of fixed braces. Fixed braces can be uncomfortable, and are also associated with being a teenager, which for some professional adults may not be an option. Therefore, Invisalign offers a fantastic solution. If you are looking for Invisalign in Weybridge, then this is a treatment that we happily offer to many patients. It is a discreet option for those who might be concerned about their looks during dental treatment and will mean that they can undergo treatment without anyone knowing about it.

Invisalign works by using a series of plastic braces to gradually align the teeth into arrangement. Instead of fixed braces which work by tightening the wires, Invisalign works by simply replacing the brace with a new one every two weeks. This means that the brace is extremely simple and will be virtually invisible the entire time you are wearing it. If you are interested in getting Invisalign in Weybridge, then do not hesitate to contact us, and let us know of your situation.

Incognito

Incognito braces are another excellent option to choose. Incognito braces work a similar way to fixed braces, however, they are on the inside of the teeth. This means that you will be able to reap all the benefits of fixed braces, and yet remain discreet about your dental treatment. There are also no real strictures about eating or drinking, so you are free to live your life without any restrictions or concerns.

Nervous Patients

Nervous patients are a part of dentistry, so we are completely used to dealing with them. People can be nervous about the dentist for many reasons, one of them being the invasive nature of treatment sometimes. Another reason can also be bad experiences in the past, and not wanting to have similar feelings brought up. It can also be shame about one’s teeth.

At Weybridge Orthodontics we understand all of these problems and assure you that there will be no problem with any patients that come through our door. If you call ahead and alert us that you are nervous about seeing the dentist, then we will be able to act accordingly and make sure you feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible throughout the process. Orthodontics in Weybridge are available to everyone regardless of how frequently they have been to the dentist, from a recent check-up, to a lifetime of avoiding the dentist.

Tips on feeling less nervous about the dentist

Like anything that can seem daunting, the best course of action is to take small steps. Once you have contacted us and let us know of your situation, then you are halfway there, as we will be able to slowly welcome you into our practice. One tip that has proven successful, is to come and visit prior to your treatment. There you can meet the dentist who will be administering your treatment, and meet our wonderful team and become acquainted with them, in order to feel more relaxed. We also advise coming in for a smaller treatment first. If you are in need of something like a filling or a root canal, then come in for a consultation or a scale and polish first, to ease you into the process with a low maintenance treatment.

Conscious Sedative

If you are feeling nervous during your treatment, then conscious sedation may be an option. This is different to an anaesthetic, as an anaesthetic will render you unconscious and numb, whereas conscious sedation works in a much lighter way, and will most likely not put you to sleep. Conscious sedation is also available in multiple formats, so if you are nervous about taking an intravenous sedative, then it can be taken orally, or via a mask to be inhaled.

Braces for adults

Due to many of the associations and stigmas of braces, many adults can be averse to straighten their teeth, to avoid any kind of ‘embarrassing’ or noticeable treatments. However, there are many fantastic dental treatments available, that directly aim to attack these stigmas, and provide a solution to many of the reasons why people might not opt for orthodontic treatment in adulthood.

Incognito in Weybridge

The important thing to remember is that braces are important, not just for the look of your teeth, but also your oral health. Teeth that are misaligned can grind together in an irregular way, which can make the teeth erode at a faster rate. This can then put you at risk of more cavities, as the teeth have been made weaker, and potentially more grooved in places.This means cavities have more chance of developing, as dirt cannot be removed by regular brushing methods.

Invisalign

One of the most popular and obvious ways of solving the problem of adults not wanting to get braces is Invisalign. Invisalign works by using a series of plastic transparent braces that are moulded to the teeth, so that when they are worn, they fit exactly over the them. When they are used, they are virtually invisible, meaning that you will be able to receive dental treatment without people noticing.

However, there are some disadvantages to Invisalign. Invisalign cannot correct teeth that are severely crooked, and these may need to be tackled with fixed braces, or even surgery in some cases. Invisalign can also be removed, which is a great feature, however it places some responsibility on the wearer of the brace, as it needs to be kept in for at least 20 hours a day, otherwise the treatment will be ineffectual. Where some braces won’t have this issue, Invisalign has the danger of being disrupted by the habits of the user. If you are interested in Incognito in Weybridge, then this is a great alternate option.

Incognito braces

As an adult, you are not denied fixed braces, however we will assume that many adults will not want to appear with metal tracks on their teeth. If you are looking for Incognito in Weybridge, then this is something that we offer. Incognito is a form of brace that works extremely similarly to fixed braces, however the metal tracks run on the inside of the teeth, rather than the outside. Due to special technology, your dentist will be able to create a 3D projection of what your teeth will look like after the treatment, and therefore be able to adjust the braces accordingly. This also means that you will be able to know exactly what the treatment is doing for you, and what you are paying for.

Incognito in Weybridge is available at our very own practice Weybridge Orthodontics, and represents a fantastic option that is different to Invisalign and fixed braces, but reaps many of the advantages from both. We understand that image can be extremely important, both during and after the treatment, so it will be our number one priority to make sure your treatment is as discreet as you want it to be.

Braces

Braces are necessary when the teeth have become crooked or displaced. Crooked teeth can be more serious than just a cosmetic issue and can cause serious complications for your jaw alignment and function. Tooth erosion can also occur in areas that have a higher level of contact with other teeth and can therefore become susceptible to cavities and tooth decay.

Invisalign in WeybridgeFixed Braces

Fixed braces are an excellent option for restoring crooked teeth to their natural state, however, they do carry some disadvantages. One of the main disadvantages of fixed braces is the association they have with being a teenager. Many teenagers undergo fixed brace treatment, as this is when their teeth are more malleable, and their adult teeth have all erupted, so they can be correctly aligned as soon as possible. Therefore, many adults can be averse to fixed brace treatment for this reason and avoid braces entirely. The intensity of braces can also be a deterrent, as many adults can think that their teeth are not crooked enough to justify fixed braces. A solution to these problems is Invisalign. Weybridge Orthodontics has a wide range of treatments that are committed to giving you the treatment that will give you the smile you deserve.

Invisalign

Invisalign is the answer to many of the problems and assumptions that fixed braces can bring up. Invisalign is only available to adults, as it is only effective on fully developed adult teeth, so any growth will render the treatment ineffective. Invisalign can also make extremely acute adjustments, so no matter how crooked your teeth are, you can use Invisalign. One of the key benefits of Invisalign, is that due to the transparent nature of the braces, it will be extremely difficult to tell that you are wearing Invisalign. Weybridge Orthodontics is committed to delivering the best possible service to you and making sure that you are informed at every step of the way. It is also important to us that you are as comfortable as possible, which means building up a rapport between dentist and patient, so that the treatments are as friendly and as comfortable as possible.

Beginning Invisalign Treatment

To begin Invisalign treatment you will first need a consultation about Invisalign in Weybridge, to assess your teeth and have a scan, as well as clear up any queries you might have about Invisalign treatment. Once scans have been taken, they will then be sent off, and a series of plastic braces will be specifically made for you. As opposed to regular braces being tightened and adjusted, Invisalign braces will simply be replaced. This will happen approximately every two weeks, and your dentist will be able to assess your progress and steps with the treatment.

Invisalign is also beneficial in that they can be easily removed, which means you are free to drink and eat whatever you want to. If you are looking for Invisalign in Weybridge, then we have all the facilities available for the treatment. Book a consultation with us if you would like to find out more.

Orthodontics

Orthodontics is the practice of correcting a patient’s jaw and teeth, to make sure that they are correctly aligned, and the teeth are chewing correctly. This can be an extremely advanced process, as there are many factors that can contribute to a misaligned set of teeth. One of the most common jobs for an orthodontist to do is to realign crooked teeth, for general and cosmetic reasons. Severely crooked teeth can pose a risk to your oral health, as the teeth can grind together, and therefore become eroded, and exposed to decay and cavities. Therefore, if you have crooked teeth, it is important to see a dentist as soon as possible. If you are looking for orthodontics in Weybridge, then we are available for a consultation.

Orthodontics in WeybridgeInvisalign

Invisalign is a relatively new form of orthodontics, that works to realign crooked teeth with a unique method. Fixed braces will use a wire that is attached permanently to the teeth and will be easily visible. Invisalign works in a different way, and instead uses a series of braces that are replaced every two weeks. Invisalign though not quite as effective as fixed braces, however, carries many benefits that mean they are quite often the favoured choice for adults.

Invisalign is made from transparent plastic material that is a perfect mould of your teeth, so they will be almost invisible when they are worn. This is a great benefit to some adults who may be self-conscious about receiving dental treatment, as most people will not be able to tell that you are undergoing dental treatment. Another benefit to Invisalign is that they can be easily removed and reinserted, which means that you can eat and drink whatever you like and not have to worry about the ramifications it might have with your braces. It also means you can undergo treatment such as teeth whitening at the same time.

Orthodontics in Weybridge Orthodontics have your best interests in mind, so if you are looking for the best possible treatment for your unique set of teeth, then do not hesitate to ask us which treatment we think would be best for you.

Incognito

Incognito is another form of treatment that has many benefits of Invisalign, but also those of fixed braces, and is a form of treatment that resembles both. Much like fixed braces, Incognito braces are permanently attached to the teeth. However, Incognito braces are attached to the back of the teeth, so that they remain invisible, much like Invisalign. There are some great benefits to Incognito treatment that make them a desirable option. While they have a fixed wire element to them unlike Invisalign, they are slightly more effective than Invisalign, and there is no need to remove them when eating or drinking.

If you are looking for orthodontics in Weybridge, then we would recommend our dental practice. We have a wide range of dental treatments, all backed by a friendly and highly professional team that has your best interests at heart.
