Pay some attention to your dental wellbeing

invisalign-weybridge

Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we empathise and recognise that a great many of our patients have been affected by the impact of recent global changes that relate to the Covid-19 crisis. All we want, as a quality and trustworthy orthodontist is to provide our unique and individual patients with the level of care which they deserve. We understand that a great many of our patients may have been hesitant or resistant to seeking out orthodontic care such as Invisalign in Weybridge during the recent lockdown measures. However, it is our belief that our numerous patients out there ought not to put their dental and oral needs on the backburner any longer, and ought now to seek out the dental care and support that they deserve.

The importance of straight teeth

Recent global events have caused all of us to pay an even closer amount of attention towards our health and wellbeing. Here at Weybridge Orthodontics it is our principal aim as a practice to ensure that each of our patients is as healthy as they can possibly be. Having teeth which are properly aligned can have an overwhelmingly positive impact on the health of a patient’s teeth and decrease the chance of dental and gum issues developing. Many of our patients here at Weybridge Orthodontics do not necessarily understand how having crooked or poorly aligned teeth can have a negative impact on their oral health, and to what extent treatments such as Invisalign in Weybridge can positively improve their dental health.

Why should I seek out Invisalign in Weybridge?

For many people, the advantages of having straight and healthy looking teeth do not extend beyond the aesthetic. However, there are several health benefits to having a straighter smile, which many patients out there may have overlooked. People who have crooked and badly aligned teeth are far more susceptible to developing preventable gum issues such as gingivitis or periodontal disease. The likelihood of developing such conditions is increased for those who have dental misalignment, as there are more difficult to reach spaces and gaps between their teeth in which pockets of bacteria and plaque can form. These plaque and bacterial deposits can cause a number of issues to develop in a patient’s teeth, including gum disease – which is the current leading cause of permanent tooth loss in adults across the country.

What is Invisalign?

Those who are unaware of what Invisalign is, or how it could potentially be used to benefit their smile, need only call upon the expertise of one of our ‘discreet orthodontics’ specialists here at Weybridge Orthodontics. Whilst conventional and commonplace methods of correcting dental misalignment – such as fused metallic braces – are typically regarded as having a negative impact on a patient’s appearance, treatments such as Invisalign leave almost no trace. This is because the fundamentals of the treatment are completely different from contemporary treatments. The Invisalign system does not align a patient’s teeth though common methodologies, but rather consists completely of a single transparent dental retainer. This retainer is custom moulded to fit over a patient’s teeth perfectly and makes use of pressure points which are built within it to apply force to specific teeth. As these retainers are made to perfectly fit over each patient’s unique dental shape, and they are made from a transparent plastic, they are almost completely undetectable when they are worn.

Here when you need us

Here at Weybridge Orthodontics we recognise that a number of our patients out there have placed their dental needs on hold in light of the recent global pandemic and lockdown restrictions. However, as life slowly but surely begins to return to normal and our practice is resuming the provision of orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign, we urge that anyone who feels they could benefit from having straight and healthy teeth, without making the sacrifices which are commonly associated with invasive orthodontic measures such as contemporary braces, to get in touch.

What are the orthodontic options available for me?

Many of our patients here at Weybridge Orthodontics may remember braces as conventional, fixed metal appliances. These are a proven method of correcting the alignment of crooked teeth, although not a solution which is usually highly regarded as having a positive impact on a patient’s ‘look’ whilst being treated. This reputation has inspired a great many orthodontic engineers to create a number of cosmetic alternative solutions which are designed to amend crooked, overlapping and misaligned teeth – without having a negative impact on how the treatments make patients look.

What is Invisalign in Weybridge?

Invisalign in Weybridge is one such alternative orthodontic treatment to conventional, fused metallic braces. It is a revolutionary treatment which completely redraws the conventions of orthodontics. Rather than align a patient’s teeth using fused brackets and wires, the Invisalign system works entirely through a single plastic, removable retainer. This retainer is made to fit each unique patient’s tooth shape perfectly, as it is constructed from a physical or digital rendering of their dental makeup. As a result, it fits so snugly over their teeth that it almost entirely escapes other people’s notice..

How does Invisalign work?

Unlike most other commonly found methods of dental realignment, the Invisalign system does not require its patients to have anything attached to their teeth to amend crooked or misaligned teeth. Rather, a set of custom moulded retainers are created for each patient using a specially engineered dental plastic material known as SmartTrack. These custom moulded retainers make use of pressure points which are fitted within their interior to apply a targeted amount of force to the specific teeth within a patient’s mouth which have been identified as crooked or out of place. When the patient wears his or her Invisalign retainer, as it is made using a transparent plastic that fits perfectly over their teeth, it is almost impossible to detect when they are wearing it.

How do I go about getting Invisalign treatment?

If you feel that you have teeth which are slightly misaligned, and you would like to align them without going through conventional channels which affect your outward appearance, then simply contact one of our experts here at Weybridge Orthodontics to begin seeking out Invisalign treatment. In doing so, you will effectively begin a path towards a brighter and straighter smile. Typically, those who contact us to seek out Invisalign treatment must first undergo a standard dental assessment to gauge their underlying oral wellbeing and establish if certain issues may stand in the way of treatment. After that, providing they are medically fit enough, their dentist can then begin to take the appropriate measurements which are required to form their unique Invisalign retainer set and begin their path towards straighter teeth though hidden, discreet means.

Invisalign – benefits and disadvantages

What is Invisalign and what can it be used for?

invisalign-in-weybridge

Orthodontic conditions are a topic as old as humanity itself. Their severity can range from minor aesthetic issues to serious problems impairing the quality of life. The treatment of these conditions has started to advance mostly in the 19th and 20th centuries. Before the 1970s, orthodontic conditions had been mostly treated by using headgears and metal braces. With the invention of dental adhesives in the mid 1970s the usage of metal braces with brackets became possible. This significantly reduced the aesthetic issues associated with earlier forms of braces and it also reduced the amount of discomfort experienced throughout such treatments.

Later developments in the field of medical plastics have brought invisible braces to the markets. These braces have an identical structure and function to metal braces, but they differ in the material they are made out of; the brackets of invisible braces are made out of plastic that has the same colour as the patient’s teeth, and the wires are made out of transparent plastic. This has significantly reduced the visibility of these braces. Later developments include invisible aligners, with the most famous and the first brand being Invisalign in Weybridge. Invisalign and other plastic aligners are ‘moulds’ of a patient’s teeth, which fit perfectly on the dental arches. During these treatments a series of these aligners are made as the treatment progresses, to achieve optimal results incrementally.

If you think you would benefit from some type of invisible aligner, such as Invisalign in Weybridge, do not hesitate to contact our dental practice, Weybridge Orthodontics in Surrey, to book yourself a consultation session, where we evaluate your orthodontic condition and help you in choosing the best possible treatment option.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

One of the most obvious benefits of Invisalign in Weybridge is the near invisibility of the plastic aligners. They fit perfectly on your teeth, and they are very hard to notice – unless you mention that you use them. These aligners are removable, which means that you can clean them and brush your teeth without the need of specific toothbrushes required when using traditional braces. Certain types of foods and beverages are known to have remarkable staining capabilities. These include for example coffee, red wine and some fruits as well. If you remove the aligners before consuming any of these you can easily prevent the staining of the aligners. However, it is important to note that they must be worn at least 22 hours a day to achieve the best results.

What are the disadvantages of Invisalign?

As with every type of treatment there are some important disadvantages to consider as well. Invisalign and other invisible aligners are not suitable for every type of orthodontic condition. Severe malocclusions and large gaps between teeth require traditional braces, as Invisalign cannot fit the tooth that must be realigned in these cases. People with very round or small teeth are also not suitable candidates for treatment by Invisalign, as the aligners in these cases cannot get the necessary grip on the teeth. Some patients would also consider the removable nature of these aligners a disadvantage rather than a feature. If you think you are the type of person who cannot always remember to wear these, you should consider an alternative option – there are plenty of them. Invisible aligners require significant patient commitment. Contact our dental practice to find out more about Invisalign and its alternatives.

Is Invisalign right for you?

What is Invisalign?

invisalign-in-weybridge

Invisalign is an innovative treatment solution for the treatment of orthodontic conditions. Orthodontic conditions are very widespread and can range in severity from minor aesthetic issues to conditions impairing one’s ability to speak or eat properly and thus having a great impact on the quality of life. Many people who require orthodontic treatment often do not seek it due to aesthetic concerns. This was a significant driving force for research and development of orthodontic treatments and resulted in the invention of invisible aligners, the first and most widely known brand of which is Invisalign. Invisible aligners are plastic ‘moulds’ of a patient’s dental arches, which perfectly fit on them. They are made out of a transparent plastic, which makes them incredibly hard to notice. If you are interested in getting Invisalign in Weybridge, contact our dental practice, Weybridge Orthodontics in Surrey to gain more information about them, and to find out whether they are suitable for you in our consultation session.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Probably the most obvious benefit of Invisalign in Weybridge compared to other orthodontic treatments is the invisibility of it. The plastic material the aligners are made out of is transparent, therefore you do not need to worry about someone noticing them, unless you tell them! Another important benefit is the reduced feeling of discomfort. As it is made out of plastic, you will not feel any metallic ‘background’ taste as some do with traditional metal braces with brackets. It will also not irritate you in the sense sharp metallic objects could; the surface of the aligners is smooth, and given their perfect fit on your dental arches they blend into your mouth to the point they are almost unnoticeable. The aligners can be removed and cleaned. This is especially important if you tend to consume drinks or food that could stain the aligners, such as coffee, tea or red wine. They allow you to maintain your normal oral hygiene routine due to their removability.

Are there any disadvantages of getting Invisalign?

As it is with most treatments, no treatment is perfect for every individual. This is true for Invisalign as well. Some conditions and natural characteristics rule out the possibility of getting invisible aligners. One of these is having certain teeth shapes, such as very round or small teeth. If you already have some dental works, such as crowns, bridges or dental implants, invisible aligners may also not be suitable for you.

How does an Invisalign treatment work?

First you need to book a consultation session in our dental clinic, where we evaluate your condition and help you determine whether Invisalign  in Weybridge is the best option for you. This is followed by taking a 3D image of your oral cavity, which helps us in designing your custom made aligners. Once this is done, the aligners are manufactured. A series of them must be worn for a defined period of time. You must wear the aligners for at least 22 hours each day, therefore Invisible aligners require significant commitment on your side. If you think this is not ideal for you, there are always other options, and we would be happy to help you in finding the best alternative for you.

Invisalign in Weybridge compared to other orthodontic treatments

Nowadays, there are a large number of different orthodontic treatments that can be used to address different oral conditions. Because of this large number of treatments, it can be easy for people to potentially become confused about which treatments they may need or which can benefit them.

Invisalign

Invisalign in Weybridge is an exciting treatment which can adjust the position of misaligned teeth to gradually shift them into a more favourable position over time. One of the reasons why this treatment is as popular as it is is because it is able to shift the teeth whilst being virtually undetectable to any outside observer. This is because Invisalign uses a set of clear aligners that are worn over the teeth in order to achieve its results.

These aligners are given to the patient in a set. This means that a patient wears the aligner for a given period of time (usually about two weeks) before switching it out for the next aligner in the set. The multiple aligners are what allow Invisalign to keep shifting the position of the teeth. Furthermore, this also means that it is relatively easy to remove the aligners for activities such as eating or drinking.

Other treatment

Another treatment which you may wish to consider is a mouthguard. A mouthguard is somewhat similar to Invisalign in that it covers the surface of the teeth, however, it is more designed to prevent damage being done to them whilst playing sports. There is also a ‘Twin-block’ treatment, which is often aimed at teenagers. This treatment is designed to realign the jaw, and it is useful for ensuring that top teeth are the ideal length in front of bottom teeth (2 – 4mm).

How Invisalign in Weybridge works and how to use it

There are many advantages to having a set of full, straight teeth in your mouth. Not only are there cosmetic benefits to having straight teeth, but it can also be beneficial for your overall oral health to have straight teeth as it can make activities such as eating and chewing easier. Whilst some people are blessed with perfectly straight teeth for the entirety of their lives, many of us aren’t quite so fortunate. This doesn’t mean that we can’t have straighter teeth; far from it. There are, in fact, many different orthodontic treatments that can be used to gradually shift our teeth into a straighter and healthier position over time.

invisalign-weybridge

One of the most exciting and interesting types of these teeth straightening treatments is Invisalign in Weybridge. There are a lot of advantages to Invisalign in Weybridge, as not only can it adjust the position of a patient’s teeth, it can also do this whilst being practically undetectable to the outside observer. However, you may be wondering about what Invisalign in Weybridge actually is, and how it works. In this article, we’ll take a look at those questions, and demonstrate why Invisalign in Weybridge could be a treatment that is worth your time.

Another important thing to think about when thinking about this, or in fact any orthodontic treatment is which dental clinic can offer you this treatment in a professional way which delivers the results you are looking for. One place that can offer you this that you may wish to consider is Weybridge Orthodontics.

Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we have a record of treating over 21,000 satisfied patients and we put this record down to our belief that the patient always comes first. Indeed, all of our orthodontic practices are carefully designed to make a patient as comfortable as possible and we always make sure to guide you through different treatment options in a friendly and unpressured environment. Because of this, you can be sure that here at Weybridge Orthodontics you will receive great treatment that puts you first.

Invisalign and how it works

If you are looking for a treatment that can straighten your teeth whilst fitting around your day to day life, then Invisalign may be the treatment for you. This is because it is a treatment that is specifically designed to be discreet. It manages to be discreet by providing you with a set of clear plastic aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth. In fact, the aligners can fit comfortably over any set of teeth, regardless of how different these teeth may be from someone else’s. This is because each Invisalign aligner is specifically designed for an individual patient’s teeth, sometimes using a mould or computer imagery to make sure that the aligners will fit as intended.

It is also worth pointing out that these aligners come in a set. This is so the patient can wear one of the aligners for a period of time – often approximately two weeks – before switching that aligner out for the next aligner in the set. This allows the aligners to gradually shift the position of the patient’s teeth so that they end up overall straighter over time.

weybridge-invisalign

Across the nation a growing number of people, of all ages and social demographics, are  seeking cosmetic dentistry solutions, to help them address superficial issues or concerns which they have about the way their smiles look. Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we welcome this new wave of patients and interest around cosmetic dentistry with open arms. Anyone who feels that their smile could be enhanced or enriched through some of the various cosmetic dentistry procedures that we offer here at Weybridge Orthodontics – such as Invisalign in Weybridge – need only take a look at our website to begin their treatment journey to help them unlock the true potential behind their smiles.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign in Weybridge is a revolutionary new system of correcting teeth which are crooked or poorly aligned. Our expert cosmetic dentists, here at the practice, are fully qualified and equipped to provide to our patients all the benefits that come with it. Invisalign offers its patients an alternative to conventional orthodontic braces. Without a doubt traditional, fused braces are very effective and successful in their aim to achieve straighter teeth. However through Invisalign in Weybridge patients can undergo dental adjustment and achieve a straighter set of teeth – without anybody noticing that they are undergoing treatment. The ‘discreet’ nature of the Invisalign process has made it one of the most widely sought out methods of cosmetic orthodontics across the world, and it has a notable following within the demographics of teenagers and younger adults. This is largely due to the freedoms that the hidden nature of the process provides, as it allows them to carry on their lives as normal whilst undergoing treatment.

How does it work?

Whilst traditional orthodontic braces operate through the use of fused brackets being bonded to teeth and held together through a tension wire, the Invisalign system is made up entirely of a single retainer. Each of these retainers is built from a mould of the patient’s tooth shape and structure – and as a result fits each patient perfectly and uniquely. Invisalign retainers are constructed from a patented plastic called SmartTrack, and are highly durable, as well as comfortable. Within the interior of each retainer there are specifically placed pressure points. These pressure points – over time – apply force to the specific teeth which are out of line, and slowly shift them into place. Treatment through the Invisalign method is most effective in instances where the misalignment is mild, and typically takes around twelve months to complete.

How do I get Invisalign?

If you feel that the crookedness of your smile could potentially be solved through Invisalign, then take a look at all the options available on our website. In doing so, you can answer all your queries and become completely clued up and familiarised with the process which you may be undertaking. If you do require an initial consultation, this will be the point where one of our practitioners will assess whether or not any underlying oral health concerns you might have could possibly stand in the way of treatment. Providing that all is well however, one of our Invisalign experts will begin to formulate a unique treatment plan, and your path towards a healthier smile will begin.

What issues can be corrected with orthodontic treatments?

The aim in orthodontics is to improve the overall appearance of your teeth, but it can also help to treat and prevent more complicated issues. These issues could otherwise cause long-term damage to your teeth. What sort of conditions are we talking about? Overcrowding or crooked teeth are a very common problem that we see here at Weybridge Orthodontics and can be rectified in a number of ways. If left untreated they can cause excess wear or even make it much more difficult to clean your teeth properly, leading to a build-up of plaque and bacteria that can lead to gum disease. An overbite or underbite will cause your teeth to meet unevenly when eating for example and this again can cause your teeth to wear excessively. These are all areas where we can offer assistance. A treatment plan using Invisalign in Weybridge will allow us to help you gain some control over these issues and get you smiling again.

How can we help you?

Traditional braces are a proven method of correcting the previously mentioned issues and for good reason. They offer effective results.

If you have found yourself in this situation do not worry, here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we are excited to be able to offer a variety of invisible options for you, including Invisalign.

But what exactly is Invisalign?

Additionally, they are tailored to your teeth specifically and we are always delighted with the results. Throughout the course of your treatment, you will receive clear retainer-like braces that will gradually bring your teeth back in line. This bit-by-bit correction process is monitored closely by our dentists and your progress is closely tracked. Adjustments can then be made to make sure you get the results you really want from Invisalign in Weybridge

These will be worn throughout the course of your treatment.
