Invisalign

Enhanced dental positioning

If you’re hoping to improve the alignment of your teeth without undergoing the potential discomfort of wire-and-bracket braces, we have a convenient solution. Available now in Weybridge, Invisalign is a transparent plastic aligner, customised to your particular needs. At Weybridge Orthodontics, we have years of experience in delivering this contemporary solution.

Invisalign in WeybridgeMeticulous planning

Our approach to this treatment is meticulous and methodical. It begins with an in-depth conversation at our dental practice in Weybridge. Invisalign is suitable for a variety of mild-to-moderate repositioning needs. Once we’ve established that it’s the right way to achieve your desired improvements, we’ll take some detailed images of your teeth.

Then, a dental laboratory will create a series of clear plastic aligners, based on your measurements. During treatment, you’ll wear a set of these aligners for 7-10 days, before moving on to the following set in the series. Because each subsequent aligner has a slightly different shape, your teeth will slowly move into improved positions.

User-friendly experience

Wearing Invisalign in Weybridge is an experience of low-key comfort. The transparent plastic appliances are hardly noticeable to the casual observer. You’ll avoid cosmetic worries during social events or customer interactions at work.

Because the aligners are not attached to your teeth, you can remove them when you need to eat a meal or use your toothbrush. This helps you to maintain a high standard of oral hygiene as treatment progresses.

During and after

The overall duration of Invisalign in Weybridge is typically 12-18 months. More complex adjustments will probably require a longer treatment time. After you stop wearing the aligners, you might need to wear a retainer while you sleep. This ensures your teeth get used to their new, improved positions.

So, you might need a certain amount of patience to get the full benefit of Invisalign in Weybridge. However, once it’s done, you’ll enjoy the benefits for many years afterwards. You’ll have a smile with enhanced aesthetic appeal, and a reduced risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Your teeth will work more efficiently, and you can bite into food more effectively. All this will have been achieved with minimal fuss, due to the discreet and convenient nature of Invisalign in Weybridge.

Invisa-what?

Invisalign! You’ve never heard of it? Well, we can understand that. After all, it’s not like you are ever going to see anyone wearing this brilliant solution to wonky teeth, as one of their main selling points is they offer invisible alignment. Hence the name.

Invisalign in Weybridge is available from accredited dentists, such as us at Weybridge Orthodontics, where we make straightening out your teeth our sole focus. We really know our stuff when it comes to creating lovely smiles. Indeed, we have over 21,000 satisfied customers out there in the world with very big grins.

Invisalign in WeybridgeThe benefits of Invisalign in Weybridge

Invisalign is one of the world’s most popular ways to straighten teeth. It’s different from traditional bracket and wires braces and it works well on mild to moderate misalignment issues.

One of the main benefits of Invisalign is that it is pretty much undetectable when it is in place. This mouth guard-style straightener is made of clear, rigid 3D-printed plastic that is only 0.3mm thick.

The other main benefit to this system is that Invisalign is removable. You take it out every time you eat, or drink anything other than clear water. People love this aspect of Invisalign in Weybridge because it gives them complete freedom with their food choices. People who have bracket and wires braces have to avoid foods that get could get stuck in their braces, or even break them. This can make things hard-going when treatment lasts for months on end, as it tends to do with straightening, as teeth can only be moved so fast.

Thirdly, busy people love the fact that using Invisalign involves fewer trips to see us. With bracket and wire braces, the progression of movement is caused by the wires being tightened through the brackets, and that means a trip to the dentist every month at least. With Invisalign, you wear an aligner for 7-10 days. Pressure points carefully built into it nudge your teeth along, and when the pressure wears off, you move onto the next aligner in the series. You will still need to come in to see us so we can check everything’s going to plan, but you will need far fewer appointments.

Making the decision to get Invisalign in Weybridge

Deciding to get your teeth straightened as an adult is a big step. You are balancing the desire to improve your smile against the issues that come with braces. At Weybridge Orthodontics, we can offer you options to realign your teeth that can help you make up your mind to go for it.

Invisalign in WeybridgeWe work with a number of teeth straightening methods. When you come to Weybridge Orthodontics for a consultation, we can help you decide which one is right for you. Depending on the type of issue that you have with your teeth, you might be able to choose Invisalign in Weybridge.

Once you see the benefits of getting Invisalign in Weybridge, we think it will make your decision about whether or not to get braces much easier.  These are some common concerns when it comes to braces and how the Invisalign experience is different:

  • Obtrusive equipment – when most people think of braces, they imagine traditional, metal equipment. This can be off-putting if you don’t want your teeth straightening treatment to have an impact on your look. The Invisalign method uses clear aligners that fit over the tops of your teeth. They are made from clear plastic so it’s hard to see them once they are in place;
  • Discomfort – Invisalign aligners are smooth on the outside. This means that they do not catch on the inside of the cheek nor do they present an issue when you are undertaking hobbies like playing sports or an instrument;
  • Awkward fitting process – to be fitted for Invisalign, you simply need to have impressions and scans taken. This data is sent to Invisalign and they return your finished set of aligners. At Weybridge Orthodontics, we give you instructions on how long to wear them and how to take care of them and you do the rest at home;
  • Restricted food choices – when you wear normal braces it is not advisable to eat mushy food that you need to bite into or very sticky things. When you have Invisalign, you take your aligner out to eat. This means there are no restrictions to your food choices at all. You simply need to ensure that you clean your teeth before re-inserting your aligner.

Feel better about your smile

One of our most popular treatments for mild to moderate misalignments is Invisalign in Weybridge here at Weybridge Orthodontics. Our patients love how it makes them feel better about their smile and their life, which they go on to enjoy more as they appreciate the significant health benefits that can come from having straighter teeth.

However, even with the convenience of Invisalign in Weybridge, treatment does require certain sacrifices. They are not as many as traditional braces, but they need to be taken into account when deciding on this way to get straighter teeth. Let us give you some tips to help you get over the transition to wearing Invisalign in Weybridge, and to make the experience, which takes on average a year, more pleasant.

Invisalign in WeybridgePractice speaking

You may find that when you first start wearing Invisalign clear aligners, that you have developed a lisp or have a little trouble speaking clearly. Try talking to yourself in the mirror or reading aloud to help you get used to speaking more quickly.

Use the removal tool to get your aligners out

Although you will be wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours a day, during that time, you’ll find yourself removing them several times. You have to take them out in order to eat, and every time you consume anything other than plain water, otherwise the clear plastic will stain and become visible over your teeth. Using the removal tool can make getting your aligners out much less fiddly.

Keeping your aligners clean

You will be wearing each Invisalign aligner for at least 20 hours a day for a week to 10 days. They will be spending a lot of time in your mouth, and during this time, even though you will be brushing your teeth after every meal, they can get dirty. They may become stained and could start to smell rather bad. To stop this happening, the trick is to soak your aligners while you are eating. The best thing to use is a denture cleaner, but you can also use a dilute solution of mouthwash, as long as you avoid mouthwashes with dyes that can stain your aligners.

Are you looking for straighter teeth?

Invisalign in Weybridge uses modern techniques to correct misaligned, wonky or crooked teeth quickly and simply. Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of near invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly. Each aligner needs to be replaced every two weeks assuring that your teeth will move little by little. Your teeth will glide in position slowly and surely with each aligner. This ensures your teeth will gradually move towards the projected final position, creating your dream smile.

Invisalign in WeybridgeHow does Invisalign work?

The first step to starting an Invisalign in Weybridge treatment is to get a consultation with one of our dentists here at Weybridge Orthodontics. The aim of this consultation is to assess the suitability of your teeth for the Invisalign treatment. During the consultation, we will discuss your case in detail to determine if you’re a good candidate.

We will then take x-rays, photos and impressions of your teeth, which can then be used to create a 3D image. From these images a precise treatment plan could be created including the prediction of the exact movements of your teeth during your Invisalign in Weybridge procedure.

Your Invisalign braces

Based on a bespoke treatment plan, a series of clear aligners is then created specifically for you. The aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, plastic and are specifically designed not to irritate your gums like traditional metal braces can do.

It’s simple: wear them for around 22 hours a day and remove them only when you eat or brush and floss your teeth. With each set of aligners, your teeth will gradually begin to move into their ideal place. Because they’re virtually invisible, even your nearest and dearest won’t notice you’re wearing them.

How long does Invisalign in Weybridge take?

Invisalign treatment will can vary from person to person. Treatment times vary from anywhere between six and 24 months, depending on the severity of your dental needs. You will need to attend dental appointments here at Weybridge Orthodontics every six to eight weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing successfully.

Your dream smile can be closer than you think with Invisalign in Weybridge.

New ways to straighter teeth

Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we believe that dental treatments should work with the patient’s lifestyle to achieve the desired result. Because everyone’s needs and desired outcomes are different, we try to provide a wide range of treatments to fit your unique needs.

Invisalign in WeybridgeBenefits of Invisalign in Weybridge

Invisalign is one of the versatile options we offer. Because the braces are removable, it offers you greater freedom than traditional braces. You can remove them for eating and cleaning and even for the odd special occasion for an hour or two.

Another advantage is that the treatment is fully planned by our dentist before it even starts. This is because the Invisalign aligners need to be custom-manufactured for each patient. We use 3D imaging to create a digital impression of your teeth and produce a digital treatment plan that shows how each set of aligners will gentle nudge your teeth into position over time. This information is then sent to the Invisalign technicians in the US who create the aligners.

How does Invisalign in Weybridge work?

In Weybridge, Invisalign treatment uses a series of custom-moulded plastic aligners that are slightly different in shape from one to the next. The difference in shape applies gentle pressure to your teeth.

The aligners are manufactured from transparent plastic that makes them almost invisible. The visual appearance of braces is often what puts adults off straightening their teeth, so Invisalign’s subtlety is a vast improvement on traditional braces.

The advantages of straighter teeth

In Weybridge, Invisalign is considered a cosmetic treatment as the adjustment it achieves is less dramatic than that of a fixed appliance. Nevertheless, Invisalign can give you the confidence boost that comes from having straighter teeth. In our modern, fast-paced lives, confidence is often key to opening doors in our social lives and even our careers.

If you’re still not sure whether Invisalign is the right teeth straightening option for you, drop into our surgery today and talk to our experienced dental team. We will give you a full run down of timescales and costs before you decide whether to go ahead with treatment.

Teeth straightening is now an official secret

Wanting to have your teeth straightened without everyone knowing that you are wearing braces is only natural, especially if you are an adult in a position of responsibility or you work with the public. You need Invisalign nearly invisible aligners to get you through the straightening process without telling the whole world what you are up to.

Invisalign in WeybridgeCumbersome metal ‘train track’ braces are hard to miss. It’s almost like they are shouting out of your mouth, crying out for attention, dying to give the straightening game away. And some people, just seem to think the mere fact that they can see your braces, gives them carte blanche to ask you lots of personal questions about your teeth. But at Weybridge Orthodontics in Weybridge, Invisalign braces sign your official secrets act. They won’t tell if you don’t.

Using Invisalign in Weybridge to straighten your teeth is not like using the more well-known brackets and wire braces systems that most of us associate with teeth-straightening.

This is because Invisalign, which is often misspelt as Invisaline, uses transparent rigid plastic trays, which look rather like mouth guards, that fit over the teeth.

The trays are made from detailed scans taken by your dentist in Weybridge. Invisalign’s laboratory in the United States receives these digital scans and uses them to calculate the trajectory along which your teeth need to move to become beautifully aligned. The laboratory makes a series of aligners. Each tray represents one step along the way from the current position of your teeth to the position they need to reach for your desired smile of lovely straight teeth. The pressure that the plastic applies to the teeth is what gently nudges them along the way.

You need to wear each tray for a week to 10 days before moving on to the next one. The number of trays depends on your individual case.

Invisalign aligners are also removable. They are easy to clean, and so are your teeth. Also, you can take them out if you really don’t want anyone to see you are wearing aligners, perhaps for a super-special event like a wedding, a job interview, or an important business meeting.

You only have one smile so make it a good one!

Have you noticed how much information you subconsciously pick up about someone when you meet them for the first time? Their friendliness, their happiness levels, their character are all assessed, and all from how much they smile and what that smile is like.

This kind of visual information, picked up with thinking within the first few seconds of meeting someone, can make or break the smiler’s hopes and dreams. We are all smilers, and it’s pretty disquieting to think we can be judged as miserable or unfriendly because we don’t smile, and the person judging us is not to know that the reason we’re not smiling is simply because we are ashamed of our teeth.

Invisalign in WeybridgeWeybridge Orthodontics can make sure you never miss out on life’s opportunities because your smile lets you down.

We offer smilers in Weybridge solutions to crooked, overcrowded or misaligned teeth. Treatments include Invisalign in Weybridge. This is a revolutionary method for straightening teeth without the use of brackets, bands or wires. Instead of the usual braces equipment, Invisalign uses clear plastic trays, rather like mouth guards, to move your teeth into a straighter position.

This method of teeth straightening, sometimes misspelt as Invisaline, has several advantages over the wire and bracket variety. If you associate ‘train-track’ braces with adolescence, and do not wish to suffer the embarrassment of being seen wearing such equipment beyond teenage years or early 20s, Invisalign in Weybridge could be for you.

The clear plastic trays fit so snugly over the teeth that they almost cannot be seen at all, and do not interfere with speech.

Invisalign trays are removable too, making brushing and flossing as easy as ever, and you can eat whatever you like. Also, at a pinch, you can remove the tray for a few hours for ultra-important business or social events (although you should not make a habit of this).

Invisalign treatments take only about 12 months, instead of years, and are a more affordable option.

Please note, Invisalign in Weybridge is designed for people with mild to moderate misalignment issues. Why not come in for a consultation and find out if it’s right for you?

No braces, no worries

One of the things that puts a lot of adults off getting their teeth straightened is the thought of having to spend months and months with metal ‘train track’ bracket and wire braces on the fronts of their teeth, making them look like a gangly teenager, when they are in fact a highly responsible breadwinner. If this is what stops you getting the lovely, straight smile of your dreams, then we’ve got great news for you. In Weybridge, Invisalign is a wonderful way of straightening your teeth without the hassle and embarrassment of traditional metal braces.

Invisalign in WeybridgeHere at Weybridge Orthodontics, we love being able to help people achieve a smile to be proud of because we know just how much it can boost their confidence. This can have hugely positive consequences throughout their lives. So it is sad that many adults forego the results because they cannot face the few months of treatment required to get them.

Invisalign in Weybridge makes the whole process so much easier. Instead of metal brackets and wires cemented onto the teeth, Invisalign uses a series of transparent plastic aligners that look like very thin mouth guards.

The Invisalign treatment journey

Invisalign aligners are manufactured to fit pinpoint accurate measurements taken from your mouth with a scanner. These are fed into a computer programme to create a virtual 3D treatment plan showing how your teeth will need to be moved and how they will look on alignment. This goes to the Invisalign factory in the USA, where your aligners are 3D printed out of smooth plastic. Each aligner has carefully placed pressure points on the inside. You snap it on over your teeth and the points put pressure on your teeth to nudge them one tiny step towards alignment. This takes one to two weeks, and then you move onto the next aligner.

Not only are the aligners almost undetectable on your teeth, but they are also removable. You can continue to eat whatever you like and keeping your teeth clean remains as easy as ever. You just need to wear them for 20–22 hours a day.

Why people love Invisalign in Weybridge

Did you know that over 4 million people worldwide have now had their teeth straightened using Invisalign? That’s a lot of people in just 20 years. This system of teeth straightening is a firm favourite with people who come to see us at Weybridge Orthodontics, and there are several reasons why.

The perks of Invisalign

Invisalign in WeybridgeFirst of all, Invisalign in Weybridge is a removable device. It snaps on over your teeth like a mouth guard and is usually kept in place by two discreet metal clips on your back teeth. Anyone who has ever had a fixed bracket and wire brace will testify to their longing to be able to just take it off and clean it rather than having to poke about with interdental brushes and get dental floss in behind the wires. It can seem to take forever. Not so with Invisalign. You just snap it off your teeth, eat your food, give your aligner a clean and also your teeth, and then snap it back on again. That said, you must not drink anything but plain water when you have your aligner in. And that can be a plus. Patients report losing weight when they are no longer having mindless snacks and cups of coffee at their desks during the day.

Secondly, Invisalign is invisible. This is the aligners’ best selling point. They are incredibly thin. Only 0.3 millimetres of transparent, rigid plastic hugging your teeth, getting between them and the world. Your colleagues will have to get up Every close and peer at your teeth to spot them, and that kind of behaviour doesn’t go down too well at work. So, you can now have your teeth straightened as an adult and not have everyone know what you are up to. You can tell people if you like, but it might be more fun to keep quiet and see if anyone actually notices the gradual straightening of your teeth.

In Weybridge, Invisalign works best on mild to moderate misalignments, so we can’t use it on all of our patients. If you would like to find out if it can work for you, why not come in for a consultation?
