What is Invisalign in Weybridge and why would I choose to undergo this particular form of orthodontics in Weybridge?

Orthodontics as a branch of dentistry aims to improve the alignment of teeth within the mouth. As a general rule, orthodontics can address a variety of issues as well as aiming to straighten teeth, they can correct an overbite, or underbite, and can deal with poor jaw alignment. All of which can affect a patient’s dental and overall health. Invisalign is essentially one form of orthodontics using clear aligners, they are simply one make, but are the largest producer worldwide. Invisalign is used when correcting mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth.

Why choose Invisalign in Weybridge over any other form of orthodontics?

We find many individuals may choose to undergo this particular form of orthodontics due to their aesthetically pleasing appearance, in that they are almost invisible to the casual observer. Invisalign is unique in the way that there is a lack of metal brackets being used and they are simply a plastic customised aligner which fits snugly over the teeth. Invisalign may be preferred by individuals who have previously undergone orthodontics, they can be used as a ‘top up’ or a ‘refresher’ treatment. Individuals of all ages can choose to undergo Invisalign treatment. Some people who are older and want to exude a more professional persona and those younger individuals who may suffer from a lower level of self-esteem and confidence find these aligners very convenient. Having clear aligners for young adolescents and teens can help to eliminate some of the insecurities traditional metal braces may hold.

How does Invisalign in Weybridge work?

Invisalign works to produce the pleasing outcome provided by other forms of orthodontics. All forms of orthodontics are similar in the way that they all aim for the same result; straight teeth. These clear aligners are replaced every few weeks with a new set, each one designed to take the patient nearer their desired straightened teeth. At our dental clinic in Weybridge we take the impressions and moulds of your teeth, these are then sent off to Invisalign, we then receive their finalised and individualised clear aligners.

These braces have the benefit of being custom made individually to every patient who chooses to undergo them.

What are orthodontics and why may I choose to undergo orthodontics in Weybridge?

Orthodontics are essentially a form of dentistry that aims to improve the alignment of the teeth. Orthodontics can come in several forms, and some individuals may decide to undergo a more subtle form of orthodontics, such as clear aligners (for example). Orthodontics work by slowly encouraging the teeth to move in a desired direction. People who may choose to undergo orthodontics at our practice in Weybridge may also have an overbite, or may have teeth with an unsightly appearance (such as being crooked). Having an overbite may be as a result of bad childhood habits, such as sucking your thumb. Some more traditional forms of orthodontics consist of traditional metal braces. Traditional metal braces may be thought of when adolescents come to mind, this is why some adults and individuals of the older generation who come to us may decide to undergo a more discreet form of braces. Patients who wish for a straighter, and overall improved smile normally take the step to undergo orthodontics.

How do braces work?

All forms of orthodontics work in different ways, one example is the traditional metal brace. Traditional metal braces work by using a combination of both brackets and a thin metal wire. Small metal brackets are adhered to the teeth using a special dental like substance (essentially a glue). These metal brackets are adhered to the front surface of every tooth within the mouth, a wire is then attached to these brackets. This form of traditional metal brace works by slowly encouraging the teeth to move in a certain direction, using pressure exerted by having them tightened periodically.

Clear aligners are another form of orthodontics and can be fixed or removable. Clear aligners are sometimes transparent retainers, which work by built in coils slowly exerting pressure to align the teeth. There are a number of sets of retainers used during treatment, each one being replaced over time to ensure the desired result.

What forms of orthodontics do you offer at your dental surgery in Weybridge?

At our surgery we are unique in the way that we offer a wide range of dental and orthodontic treatments. One example of the orthodontic treatment we offer here is Invisalign, which is a widely known name and is actually just one provider of clear aligners we can use. We can offer an array of fixed clear or ceramic braces too. One other example of the wide array of orthodontic treatments we offer is a treatment type known as ‘Incognito’.

What are ‘Incognito’ braces and why may I choose to undergo this form of orthodontics?

Incognito braces are a more subtle form of brace. Incognito braces use a wire that is placed behind the teeth, this means it is virtually impossible for other individuals you may come in contact with to tell you are wearing braces. Individuals may decide to have this form of brace if they are older, and do not wish for obvious orthodontics to hinder their career prospects (for example).

How do I inquire about undergoing orthodontics?

If you are unsure about whether or not you want to undergo an orthodontic treatment at our clinic you can make a simple enquiry directly via our website, by filling out some of your simple contact details (name, email, and your telephone number). If you feel more comfortable selecting the type of enquiry you wish to make you can use a dropbox option to let us know what you wish to know.  You can also use an open tailed notes box so you can express any queries, concerns, or even simple questions you may have.

Hidden wonders

This retainer system is one which has revolutionised the world of conventional orthodontics. Historically, those seeking dental realignment, were often faced with the decision to sacrifice their outward appearance for around twelve months for the sake of a straighter smile, by wearing large, visible, traditional metal braces. Today however, thanks to the ingenuity of Stanford University graduate, Zia Chishti, this has become a thing of the past. Chishti took the world of orthodontics by storm when he first introduced his new system, which utilises a removable, plastic retainer as an alternative to conventional fused metal brackets. This retainer is constructed from a specialist, patented plastic known as SmartTrack, which is utilised for it’s uniquely durable, yet malleable nature. When worn throughout the course of treatment — which varies from case to case, but typically lasts around twelve months — the patient’s teeth are gradually drawn into their correct specifications, using specifically placed pressure points within the retainer.

Under the surface

One of the major reasons as to why Invisalign in Weybridge has grown vastly in its popularity over recent years, over conventional methods of orthodontics, is its discrete nature.  Each retainer is unique and made to fit the patient’s teeth by utilising cutting-edge 3D rendering software, which allows for a perfectly accurate and virtually perfect mould of each patient’s teeth to be created, from which the retainer is made. As the retainer is custom fitted to the specific contours of a patient’s teeth, when worn, it fits so snugly over their teeth that it becomes practically invisible. This may explain why Invisalign in Weybridge is now the number one method of discrete orthodontics for teenagers and young adults, who may be deterred from conventional methods due to the scrutiny they may receive from their peers or colleagues. Another reason for Invisalign’s success within this demographic is that, unlike conventional methods of dental realignment, the retainer is removable. This affords its users to decide a convenient time to carry out treatment, and fit around their schedules — such as when at home or asleep. Our friendly and approachable team of specialists will be on-hand to help our patients through each stage of the process of undertaking Invisalign in Weybridge, and we will always provide patients with the support and guidance they require.

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.

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.

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.

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.
