A different kind of orthodontics
Over the past year, getting treatments like Invisalign Weybridge from a trusted cosmetic orthodontist such as ours has been harder than ever, due to the unforeseen implications of the Covid:19 pandemic.
Now, thankfully, at Weybridge Orthodontics we are happy to report that our practice is back in full swing, and our cosmetic orthodontic specialists are once again doing what they do best – helping craft beautiful, healthy smiles.
We recognise that the last year has been incredibly difficult and challenging for everyone, and that evidence of these challenges can be seen in the dental wellbeing of many patients.
Having crooked or badly aligned teeth is something that presents far more problems and issues than you may first think, from the social implications to dental and health concerns, and we strongly advise anyone who feels their teeth are crooked or out of place to speak to us here at Weybridge Orthodontics about what your options are.
What is Invisalign Weybridge?
Invisalign is a relatively new form of cosmetic orthodontics that has become massively popular throughout the world, thanks to its proven ability to discreetly realign a patient’s smile through a non-invasive, removable means.
Rather than using the conventional orthodontic approach of fixed brackets and connective tension wires, the Invisalign process instead aligns the patient’s teeth through a removable, plastic dental aligner.
This aligner is both wafer-thin and transparent, and as each one is made uniquely for each patient, when placed over their existing teeth it slips completely out of view.
In terms of how Invisalign actually achieves a straighter smile, it uses pressure points that are carefully placed within the structure of every aligner to apply force to specific teeth and gently push them into position over time.
How can I get Invisalign?
If you have teeth that are visibly out of place and would like to realign them without going through the conventional route of traditional fixed braces, the first step in getting Invisalign Weybridge from us here at Weybridge Orthodontics is to book a consultation.
These consultations are essential in the Invisalign process, – because every aligner is unique and tailored to the patient – and they give our practitioners an opportunity to assess your levels of oral health and see if any preliminary treatments (such as getting rid of evidence of gum disease) will be needed before the Invisalign process can be carried out efficiently.
After the initial examination, our practitioners can then take all the photographs and digital impressions that they’ll need to create your unique Invisalign aligner. At this stage in the process, we can also show you an accurate visualisation of how your smile will look after completing the treatment.
Once the patient’s unique set of Invisalign aligners has been created, they are then free to take them home and carry out their treatment. Because every Invisalign aligner is fully removable, patients can choose to remove them whenever they want to, such as when attending a social event or posing for a photo, which gives them a huge amount of freedom that few other forms of orthodontic alignment can offer.
