Straightening your teeth with Invisalign, Weybridge

Did you know that there is still a large number of adults in the UK living with the discomfort and issues caused by misaligned or crooked teeth? This may seem like an odd thing to comprehend. Considering that tooth alignment treatment is now more accessible than ever before, there is no need for anyone to live with misaligned teeth and the issues that can often be caused by them.

If you are seeking a suitable treatment for this common dental issue, then modern alignment technology and techniques can provide you with a treatment that is discreet and able to give you the results you are looking for.

Invisalign Weybridge can allow you to receive the alignment treatment you may need without others knowing, as once your alignment device is in position within your mouth, others will not be able to see it due to the materials it is made from. Finally, patients who need their teeth aligned can do so in a way that respects their privacy.

A revolution in alignment treatment

If you are one of the many adults who were offered treatment in their years but refused to engage with it due to being in a sensitive stage in your life’s development and not wishing to portray an image that others may have easily poked fun at, then there is no need to be concerned.

Invisalign aligners have been designed with the wearer in mind. By creating aligners that sit subtly in the mouth, one of the major concerns is directly addressed in a way that gives any patient reassurance.

Created by using two sheets of clear plastic, these aligners may be the treatment that you feel comfortable engaging with. One thing we would ask you to realise is that it is never too late for you to receive the tooth alignment treatment.

Deciding to be treated with Invisalign Weybridge means that you are taking a proactive step to improve your oral hygiene and health.

Getting prepared for treatment

Your first step on the path to aligned teeth is to book an appointment with our dentist who can assess your teeth and treatment needs. At this consultation, we will fully examine your teeth so that a suitable course of action and treatment can be recommended to you. This appointment also allows our dental team to take scans or x-rays that will be helpful in the process of creating any aligners that are to be used in your treatment.

Invisalign Weybridge uses a series of different aligners through the course of your treatment, each must normally be worn by the patient for 2 or 3 weeks and then replaced by the next in the series. Each plays its role within your treatment, which typically takes 12 to 18 months to complete.

By the end of your treatment time, you will have the requested results, aligned teeth and greatly improved standards in your oral health and hygiene. We at Weybridge Orthodontics are a friendly and professional team ready to help create smiles for children and adults

Gain the straight teeth you desire with Invisalign, Weybridge

If you are someone who is having to live with misaligned teeth, you would be more than aware of the issue that the condition can cause you in your daily life. We know that you may be living with some discomfort, and you may also be experiencing common dental issues, such as tooth decay and gum disease, on a more frequent basis.

invisalign-weybridge

You might also be struggling to completely care for your teeth in a way that is recommended, as it may be difficult to navigate a toothbrush or dental floss around them, meaning providing consistent cleaning becomes next to impossible.

Maybe you have wanted to have your teeth realigned but wrongly believed that tooth alignment treatments are only given to people in their early teens. So, if you are an adult living with misaligned teeth, the good news is that there is now a treatment option that targets adults and helps to give them the teeth they want.

Invisalign Weybridge may be the treatment solution you have been seeking that will allow you to live without the discomfort and other dental issues caused by misaligned teeth.

Lessening the risks posed by common dental issues

Many people who live with misaligned teeth find that they need to undergo more dental treatments for very common problems that occur more often in their cases; this can lead to them feeling frustrated by the condition of their oral health. Over time, these common issues can become more severe and lead to invasive dental treatments being required; fillings and extraction are just two examples.

There is also a heightened risk of infections and/or abscesses in the mouths of those living with misaligned teeth; these can bring their own set of complications into the battle for high-quality oral hygiene and health.

Having your teeth straightened and aligned with Invisalign Weybridge can reduce the risk of common dental issues occurring, as once the teeth are positioned correctly, you will find them much easier to clean. This should then lead to you enjoying a higher standard of oral health over a short period of time.

Going for the change

If you are to consider this treatment fully, then you must book a consultation with our dentist so that you can find out exactly what is involved in the treatment with Invisalign Weybridge. This will create an opportunity for you to have your teeth fully examined by our professionals who can assess your needs and draft a treatment plan for you to consider.

During your consultation, we will take scans and x-rays of your teeth to help in the creation of the aligners that are to be used in your treatment. This is also a good time for you to raise any concerns and ask any questions you may have. If you are to get the most out of your treatment, it is important that you feel comfortable to move forward and be fully informed.

We at Weybridge Orthodontics are a friendly and professional team that can help create smiles for both children and adults.

What you need to know about orthodontics

In order to either improve the appearance, correct issues with the bite or alignment of an individual’s teeth, we use orthodontic treatment most commonly in the form of braces. The benefits of using orthodontic treatment include correcting dental crowding, straightening your teeth and correcting your bite meaning that both your upper and lower teeth meet evenly when closed. If your bite is not corrected, this can lead to problems with your oral health as an incorrect bite makes it more difficult for you to keep your teeth and gums clean.

Generally orthodontic treatment can be started once a child’s adult teeth begins to come through however with adults, orthodontic treatment can begin at any time. If you are an adult seeking orthodontic treatment, it is important to note that depending on your dental issue, treatment options may be more limited.

The type of orthodontic treatment offered to you comes in the form of braces. Fortunately, as there continues to be advancements in dental technology, there are now more orthodontic treatment options than ever before.

If you are considering orthodontic treatment but are looking for a more discreet option, you may want to consider Invisalign Weybridge.

Orthodontic options

At Weybridge Orthodontics, we understand that some of our adult patients may be looking for orthodontic treatment that suits their lifestyle. Many adults want orthodontic treatment however may not want other people to know they are straightening their teeth, This is why we offer at our practice Invisalign Weybridge.

A popular treatment to straighten teeth, Invisalign Weybridge uses clear aligners to move your teeth into their desired position and thus improving your smile. These aligners are also removable and you will be required to change the aligners every two weeks on average for the duration of the treatment. Prior to starting the treatment, you will be invited to our practice to have an initial consultation. At this appointment, a scan will be taken of your teeth. This allows us to generate a 3D treatment plan which will be used to create the aligners and gives you the chance to see how your teeth will look once the treatment is complete. It will also give an estimate of how long the treatment will take.

Looking for an alternative to fixed braces?

If you have always wanted braces but as an adult do not want other people to know you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment, there are many other options you can consider for a more discreet experience. At Weybridge Orthodontics we understand the need for this, which is why we offer alternative orthodontic treatments to traditional metal braces.

The benefits of correcting your teeth

If you decide to invest in orthodontic treatment, you can experience a number of benefits. Firstly, the appearance of your teeth will be improved, enhancing your facial aesthetics and increasing your confidence.

If you have any gaps in your teeth, closing these gaps will reduce the risk of you developing oral infections such as gum disease. This is because when you eat, food particles can build up in the gaps in between your teeth, which can increase bacteria in the mouth and affect your oral health if not treated early enough.

Orthodontic treatments can also correct your bite if you are dealing with an overbite, underbite or a deep bite. Having a misaligned bite can cause a number of issues such as being unable to chew your food properly, which can affect how your food is digested. Correcting your bite will also result in some facial changes and you will experience less headaches and pain in your jaw if you have been suffering with this.

What we can offer you at Weybridge Orthodontics

At Weybridge Orthodontics, we offer orthodontic treatment options for both child and adult patients. If you are unsure of the most suitable treatment for you, there’s no need to worry as one of our experienced dental professionals will be able to provide you with valuable information and bespoke advice in order for you to make an informed decision. We do this in the form of a consultation. This consultation is imperative for our patients, as it allows us to carry out a thorough examination of your teeth by taking x rays, clinical photographs and if needed impressions in order to create a bespoke treatment plan for your current dental issues.

If you are considering orthodontic treatment but are looking for a more discreet option, you may want to try Invisalign Weybridge, which uses removable clear aligners to straighten your teeth.

The benefits of using removable aligners

If you decide to invest in Invisalign Weybridge, one of the most noticeable benefits is that because the aligners are clear, when you wear them it will be hardly noticeable that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Invisalign Weybridge are also removable, which means you are able to maintain a good oral care regime throughout your treatment, such as brushing and flossing after meals. You also are able to have your favourite food and drink as normal but as mentioned it is important to ensure you brush your teeth before wearing the aligners again. They are also made to be comfortable and they reduce the risk of soreness and tension in the mouth.

Lastly, by using this treatment to straighten your teeth, you can expect beautiful results and once the treatment is complete, you will be given another set of retainers to wear overnight or fixed retainers at the back of your teeth to ensure that your teeth do not move back into their previous positions.

Common FAQs about Invisalign aligners answered

Are you eager to learn more about invisible aligners and how they can help you straighten your smile?

invisalign-weybridge

At Weybridge Orthodontics, our team knows all there is to know about braces and aligners, especially Invisalign Weybridge. So if you ever need help straightening your teeth, we are the people to go to!

Want to know a bit more about Invisalign Weybridge? Here, our team at the practice answers the most common questions we receive from patients about this convenient aligner.

What are invisible aligners?

Invisible aligners like Invisalign Weybridge are visually similar to sports guards, but are custom-fitted to your teeth. Instead of being made from thick plastic, they are made from thinner clear plastic which, while durable, is not as hard and is more comfortable to wear in daily life.

They usually come in packs of around 14 and, instead of using force to move your teeth in the way that standard braces do, invisible aligners gently push your teeth; each aligner in the series has a slightly different shape, to encourage your teeth to move.

Who can benefit from wearing them?

If you have a mild to moderate misalignment, overbite, underbite, spacing or overcrowding, then you are likely to benefit from wearing invisible aligners.

But to find out if you are suitable for them, you will need to see a member of our team for an initial consultation.

How long do they need to realign teeth?

When it comes to invisible aligners, they are estimated to take between 3-6 months to correct minor issues with misalignment. However, if you have a more complicated case of misalignment but our team still thinks you could correct it using an invisible aligner, then you may be wearing them for up to 9 months and over.

For a more accurate guide on how long your realignment will take, talk to a member of our team.

Aren’t they too expensive for most people to afford?

Surprisingly, no.

While you may look at the guide price online for invisible aligners and find them to be a little high, many dental surgeries (including ours) can offer them to you with financing options. That means you can spread the cost of the aligners over several months, helping you to get the smile that you want without breaking the bank.

For more information about this, talk to our team.

Can’t I get them cheaper online?

There have been many attempts by dental companies to offer patients unbranded invisible aligners in their own homes; all you have to do is send off for the kit, take a mould of your teeth and then, the aligners are sent straight to your home.

However, while these alternatives may be cheaper than the invisible aligners you can find in a dental clinic, there are often issues with them. For one thing, without a professional to oversee the mould taking process of examining your teeth at the beginning, the chances of an error occurring go up. And of course, when designing the actual shapes of the aligners, this is not a  good thing!

To get straighter teeth sooner (and safely) always approach a qualified dentist, like our team at Weybridge Orthodontics.

Facts about Invisalign aligners

Have you heard about the latest craze in adult orthodontics; invisible aligners?

invisalign-weybridge

Discreet, effective and more affordable than many people realise, invisible aligners have ushered in a new era of dental realignment procedures and more people are able to have them than you may think!

At Weybridge Orthodontics, we are proud to be able to offer Invisalign Weybridge to our suitable patients and know all there is to know about this aligner.

Want to learn more about Invisalign Weybridge from us? Here are 5 top facts you may not know about it.

They aren’t invisible

OK, so as they are called invisible aligners, it can be easy to assume that they are invisible.

And while we may be able to move teeth using invisible force fields in the future, for now, they are the closest thing we have! Invisalign Weybridge is made from clear plastic that is malleable but also firm. They slot over your teeth as a mouthguard does and as they are fitted precisely to your teeth, you can wear them with maximum discretion.

So, they are the closest thing yet to an invisible aligner that is used in dentistry.

They aren’t for everyone

Yes, invisible aligners have come a long way concerning what kinds of orthodontic issues they can treat.

But sadly, they still aren’t for everyone. If you have a more complex case of dental misalignment, need to have your molars moved or rotated, or if your upper and lower jaws don’t mesh together, then invisible aligners may not be for you.

This is why it is so important to have trained dentists assess suitability for these aligners, if not they can at best do nothing to resolve a severe misalignment or, at worst, make it more complex.

They require specialist training to use

A dentist or orthodontist who uses invisible aligners will have needed to attend an additional training course to use them correctly.

And while all of our team at Weybridge Orthodontics who use this aligner have attended this course, it is important to be aware that when you are looking for a specialist to use this aligner that you should ask to see their qualifications for additional training.

They can’t be bought online

If you have been online or have been watching TV, you will have undoubtedly seen one of the adverts offering to deliver custom-fitted aligners directly to your home.

While this may seem harmless, it can cause a myriad of dental issues; you don’t have a professional to measure your teeth at the start and you will need supervision throughout the treatment to ensure it goes well. If you don’t have this, it can be problematic for your teeth.

So, in short, you cannot buy effective invisible aligners online; come in and see our team instead!

They are extremely efficient!

And finally, but importantly, invisible aligners are extremely efficient at straightening teeth.

If used for the allocated 22 hours per day, and if you stay on top of your oral hygiene and dental check-ups, the result of this aligner will be a dazzling smile that you won’t be able to stop showing off.

Is Invisalign in Weybridge the hidden solution to your orthodontic worries?

Discover your discrete options

invisalign-in-weybridge

At Weybridge Orthodontics we have always made it our goal to make sure that all our patient’s in Weybridge and beyond can attain easy access to some of the most popular and beneficial discrete orthodontic options such as Invisalign in Weybridge.

Across the country, there are literally thousands of people who live every day with crooked and badly shaped smiles but refrain from seeking out orthodontic assistance.

One of the most common reasons that people often sight for not getting any form of orthodontic care is that they do not want to have fixed braces installed in their mouths as they are concerned with how it will make them look.

To anyone who feels this way, we want to stress that here at Weybridge Orthodontics our practitioners are more than capable of providing attentive cosmetic orthodontic options – such as Invisalign – which can give them the opportunity to align their smiles without the treatment impacting their outward appearances.

What is Invisalign in Weybridge?

Although we’ve been offering Invisalign in Weybridge to our patients for some time now here at Weybridge Orthodontics, there continues to be a portion of people out there that are unaware of what Invisalign actually is or the positive impact it could have on their oral futures.

Invisalign was first conceived back in 1998 by a Stanford University graduate called Zia Chishti who wanted a way to align a person’s teeth in a way that has almost no impact on how they look.

The basis of Chishti’s Invisalign system is to remove the conventions associated with orthodontics of that time – which mostly relied on fixing brackets to every tooth and applying tension to them with a wire.

Rather than take this approach, Chishti decided to explicitly employ the use of a series of custom-made retainers which have pressure points inside them that push misplaced teeth together over time.

After being approved by the FDA in 1998 the Invisalign retainer system gained worldwide popularity and by 2000 was one of the most popular alternatives to traditional orthodontics across the globe, and still is to this day.

What is the process of getting Invisalign at Weybridge Orthodontics?

The Invisalign system, at its core, requires an individual and bespoke approach and the retainers are each custom-made specifically to fit the patient getting them.

As such we always begin each course of Invisalign treatment here at Weybridge Orthodontics with a consultation.

These are an essential part of the process as they let us work out whether or not each patient will be eligible for Invisalign – as their gums need to be of a certain level of health for the treatment to be successful.

Another benefit of these consultations is that they allow patients the opportunity to ask our dentists any questions that they may have about the Invisalign process, and what the results will look like. Once we’ve completed these initial consultation stages the measurements, photographs or digital impressions we need to build every patient’s unique set of transparent, removable Invisalign retainers – which they can then take home with them to carry out the process at their own leisure.

Could Invisalign in Weybridge help unlock your smiles true beauty?

Clearly effective alignment

At Weybridge Orthodontics we aim to bring the best in orthodontic treatments to our patient’s, and let them find their true smile (and the confidence to let it shine).

invisalign-in-weybridge

One of the most popular ways in which we do so is through Invisalign in Weybridge, which is a revolutionary form of alternative cosmetic orthodontics to traditional braces.

Since its inception, the Invisalign braces system has been used on millions of happy patients worldwide, and the following article will provide readers with everything they’ll need to know about what Invisalign is, or how it could help their smiles.

What makes Invisalign different?

Invisalign was introduced to the global market back in 2001, and since then it has become massively popular across the globe – particularly for younger patients who desire a means of realigning their smiles without bringing too much attention to themselves while doing so.

Rather than approaching the problem of crooked teeth through more traditional approaches – such as attaching ceramic or metallic brackets to every individual tooth – the Invisalign method aligns a patient’s teeth through completely non-invasive means.

The whole process of shifting crooked teeth with Inviaslign in Weybridge is carried out by carefully and deliberately positioned pressuepoints and grooves within every custom-built retainer.

These retainers are built using a patented specialist dental plastic which is called Smarttrack, and is made especially for the patient who wears it, from a mould or digital impression of their unique dental makeup.

As every Smarttrack Inviaslign retainer is completely see-through and thin, when the patient slips it over their teeth the retainer becomes totally undetectable.

What is the process of getting Invisalign in Weybridge?

Although the Invisalign aligner system has helped millions of smiles across the world, sadly not everyone will be eligible for Invisalign treatment imediately, as their gums and oral health has to be of a particular standard in order for the treatment to be effective.

As such, we always begin each course of Invialsign treatment with an examination and consultation with our patient’s to gauge their existing dental health and work out if we’ll need to do any preventive or restorative treatments before Invaslign is an option.

These consultations also provide the perfect opportunity for patient’s to ask us any questions they may have about the process, as well as allowing us to illustrate to them through a 3D digital rendering what their smile is going to look like after finishing a course of Invisalign.

After our oral examiner has detailed the process of Invisalign and taken all the necessary photographs, the construction of your custom-made Invialsign retainer sets will begin.

As no two sets of teeth are ever misaligned in an identical way, the process of making a customised retainer to perfectly match each patient can take some time. After being built though, the patient can take their retianers home and begin wearing them for at least 20-22 hours a day.

One of the biggest advantages of choosing Invisalign over conventional braces – besides the cosmetic advantages – is that the retaienrs can be taken out whenever the patient chooses to. This makes doing things such as attending important job interviews or socal events far easier as the retainer can be periodically removed and put back on without anyone knowing.

Searching for a faster and inconspicuous orthodontic treatment, Invisalign Weybridge could be for you

What is Invisalign Weybridge?

invisalign-in-weybridge

When looking into orthodontic treatments to straighten your smile there are many aspects to consider, including the cosmetic impact on your appearance during the treatment and the length of time it will take to improve your smile. After all, with advances in technology and knowledge, we all understand that the shorter treatment plans can be effective when followed correctly. This is where Invisalign Weybridge fits into the market. These nearly invisible, removable retainers are perfect for those looking for results within around 3 to 6 months.

Is it just one retainer for the entire treatment?

Invisalign Weybridge refers to a treatment which has a series of retainers which are worn at different times throughout your treatment. Each retainer is custom made and created from digital scans taken during your consultation with us at Weybridge Orthodontics. Your retainer is to be worn for approximately 22 hours a day with removal only during the oral hygiene process and when you are peckish and eating food. Whilst wearing the retainer for long periods of time each day, the teeth will be working hard and pushing your teeth into a new aligned position. Once a certain placement has been made by the retainer, your dental team will advise you to move onto the next retainer so as to continue the development. Rest assured that our team at Weybridge Orthodontics will guide you on when to change your retainer as throughout your treatment we are working with you as a team.

Once the treatment has been completed and the smile you dreamed of is in place, a final retainer will be created so as to secure and maintain the placement of your teeth. Once treatments take place, over time the teeth can begin to shift back to their original places which is why Invisalign Weybridge creates another inconspicuous retainer which is to be worn on a daily basis after treatment. As per your previous retainers, these retainers are barely visible and therefore your friends and family will be none the wiser and you can carry out your daily life without cause for embarrassment.

Understanding whether this is the treatment for you.

As with most treatments and procedures, Invisalign Weybridge first requires a consultation between you and your dental team. This is of high importance as it not only creates an opportunity for you to ask as many questions as you would like but allows your dental team at Weybridge Orthodontics to fill you in with questions and answers that may have not come to your mind. During this appointment, alongside the exchange of knowledge, a physical examination of the teeth will take place along with any digital scans and x-rays that may be needed. These scans enable the dentist to see the full extent of the misalignment and ensure that Invisalign Weybridge is the best treatment for your individual needs. If an alternative treatment may be more suitable then this will be discussed with you before proceeding further.

At all times Weybridge Orthodontics is working with you as a team to ensure that your smile goals are met and in the best way possible.

After all, no one wants to hide away for months on end in order to realign the teeth and luckily there is no need to hide your smile away at all.

invisalign-weybridge

What are they?

In the past, the majority of orthodontic treatments have been created out of metal and fixed in a variety of ways to the teeth. Whilst many of these treatments were and are highly effective, cosmetically they are not necessarily discreet which is why Invisalign Weybridge were created. These removable retainers, which are transparent in appearance, enable us adults to work on our smiles without the need for noticeable treatments. Each retainer is created from digital scans of your own teeth creating a snug fit to the teeth, which places pressure points in particular locations. This pressure then gently pushes the teeth into a new aligned position. Whilst the process behind Invisalign may sound simple, it requires a large amount of dedication from you and from us at Weybridge Orthodontics. After all, your dental care is a team effort.

How do we get from start to finish?

To begin the journey of Invisalign Weybridge our first point of call is to carry out a consultation. Whilst this may sound rather formal, the idea of this is to not only gain an insight into what your overall goals are for your smile but to also take a look at the physical aspects. Whilst the majority of cases can undergo the treatment, it may be that there are other more suitable orthodontic treatments which is why this consultation is of great importance. At all times we will all be working to help you get the smile you have dreamed of.

Once the decision has been made to go ahead, a series of digital scans, x-rays and in some cases moulds will be taken so as to create a custom made plan as well as your retainers. This plan will enable you to see the possibilities that are ahead of you if treatment is carried out to plan.

Once treatment begins, it is important to know that the majority of the plan relies heavily on your own dedication to the process. Wearing the retainers for approximately 22 hours a day, with removal during your daily cleaning processes and meal times will allow your teeth to be constantly working on their new alignment. As the treatment progresses, our team at Weybridge Orthodontics will work on getting you through each stage seamlessly, a simple change over of retainer sets as your teeth reach a certain level is all that is needed along with your regular check-ups. Then once we are all agreed that you have reached your goal, a new final retainer will be created to wear ongoing. This is important so as to maintain your perfected smile for many years to come.
