Braces – ancient and modern

Ever wondered when humans first started correcting the position of their teeth? Well, wonder no more. After a bit of sniffing around we’ve uncovered some surprisingly interesting facts about the history of braces.Of course, the technology used by Romans and Egyptians was somewhat different to the appliances we use today. In fact, by modern standards their braces look more like instruments of torture!

invisalign-braces-in-weybridgeAncient Egyptians left traces of their orthodontic experiments in their mummies. Some of these were discovered with metal bands wrapped around their teeth because for them it was important that teeth remained in place in the afterlife. The Romans used techniques for straightening teeth in living patients. At Surrey Braces, we too focus on living patients! At our practice in Weybridge, Invisalign, a brand of invisible braces, is increasingly popular. This would not be the case if we were still employing ancient Roman or Egyptian techniques that’s for sure.

The beauty of the Invisalign brace is that it addresses so many of the concerns and reservations and problems people used to have about the idea of braces. While most of our patients are children and young adults, who have a medical need for treatment, the biggest growth is in adult patients seeking cosmetic dentistry solutions.

Instead of the traditional metal ‘railway track’ braces, invisible orthodontics offer the wearer the option to have a clear and sometimes a removable brace. For many teenagers, their image is so important that the thought of having metal braces on their teeth is too traumatising. They fear bullying and isolation.For adults who need to look good for their job, the ability to have treatment that is practically unnoticeable is a crucial feature of Invisalign in Weybridge.

The length of treatment is also an issue that is addressed positively by the new invisible orthodontics. In some cases the braces only need to be worn for six months. Another advantage is something that everyone can relate to – comfort. The modern wire technology used in the design of invisible braces means that the force exerted on the teeth is reduced. Anyone who has been through the traditional braces treatment process will appreciate what a bonus this is.

In Weybridge, Invisalign is making its mark. You just can’t see it!

invisible-bracesWhat is Invisalign? Weybridge Orthodontics answers your question!

We believe that dental treatment should not be a downer. There is enough going on in the world without your world being turned upside down again with a dramatic change in your appearance. We know that the results of waiting for straight teeth are worth it, but isn’t there an easier solution? Or one at least which doesn’t make us even more self-conscious about our mouth?

Luckily, the clever people at Invisalign have invented a system, which gives you straight teeth without the tight-lipped smiles! But what is Invisalign?

Invisalign in Weybridge

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system, which uses a series of nearly invisible aligners that are made out of a clear hygienic material, which sits in your mouth in much the same way that a gum shield would. However, because we tailor the aligner to your mouth, it is far more comfortable, and many patients report that they forget that the aligner is even there!

Invisalign treatment is barely visible and so won’t attract the wrong kind of attention, but best of all, Invisalign is removable, so you can take it out if your mouth comes under too close scrutiny, or if you want to eat or clean the aligner. What a difference that is from wire frame braces! Now nobody will have to endure having food stuck in their braces again just to get straighter teeth!

You can visit us any time or call us to find out more. We are happy to provide patients with Invisalign treatment at Weybridge Orthodontics. The consultation is key for making sure that you choose the right braces for you. With our help you can decide what your outcome is and choose the right system with our guidance and support.

The benefits of Invisalign teeth straightening treatment

Invisalign is a modern form of orthodontic treatment, suitable for correcting a wide range of issues affecting adults’ and teenagers’ teeth. At Surrey Braces in Weybridge, we are firmly of the belief that dental treatment should fit conveniently around your lifestyle whenever possible. When it comes to teeth straightening, we believe that Invisalign does just that.

teeth-straightening-weybridgeNo more metal braces

Metal braces are far from the only option for teeth straightening in the modern day and age. At our Weybridge dental practice we offer a number of subtler options, all designed to straighten and improve the alignment of your teeth with the minimum of fuss.

Whereas traditional metal braces – and cosmetic tooth-coloured or lingual brace systems – are attached to your teeth for the duration of treatment, it is safe and easy to remove Invisalign at home. Treatment involves the use of a series of clear, removable aligners to guide your teeth into a new position, without a glint of metal in sight.

There are numerous advantages to treatment with Invisalign. The fact you take them out to eat, drink, to clean and to brush/floss your teeth means that you don’t need to adapt your dental hygiene routine at all during treatment, although you should still brush your teeth an hour after every meal.

The fact that your Invisalign aligners are clear means that they are entirely invisible to the untrained eye in daily life – hence the name. Very few people will notice that you are even wearing them.

Invisalign in Weybridge

When you come into our Weybridge dental clinic for an Invisalign consultation, our orthodontist will check that this is the most suitable option to suit your needs. There are several other discreet orthodontic solutions available at Surrey Braces should Invisalign not be suitable.

If you are approved for treatment, photographs, scans, impressions and measurements of your teeth will be taken so that your aligners can be made, and thanks to the advanced 3D computer software that supports this system of aligners, your Weybridge orthodontist will be able to show you the results you can expect from the outset, as well as the stages of movement your teeth will go through.

Using Invisalign to straighten your teeth with minimal lifestyle impact

Invisalign is a popular alternative to metal braces for adults and teenagers who want straighter teeth. Surrey Braces dental clinic in Weybridge offers this highly-discreet method of teeth straightening treatment to correct a wide range of orthodontic concerns, with minimal impact on your lifestyle.

straighten-teethA lot of adults who dream of straightening their teeth are turned off by the thought that they have to wear obvious metal braces for months or even years on end. Fortunately, orthodontics has advanced a lot in recent years, and our Weybridge dental centre offers a number of far more discreet routes to the perfectly aligned smile. Invisalign is one of the most popular choices.

Weybridge Invisalign

Standard and cosmetic braces are fixed to your teeth for the duration of treatment. Invisalign is different. It involves the use a series of clear, removable aligners to progressively move your teeth into a better position, little by little, week by week.

The Invisalign system is excellent for maintaining dental hygiene during treatment, which is a worry for some people who wear standard braces. There are no special hygiene techniques required; you just take your aligners out to eat and drink, to clean, and to brush and floss your teeth in the normal way.

At our Weybridge dental clinic we always advise you to brush your teeth an hour after every meal during any type of orthodontic treatment, to prevent particles of food getting trapped against your teeth.

Minimal lifestyle impact

Because they are both clear and removable, Invisalign aligners have very little impact on your daily life. They are made from clear plastic and will go unnoticed by the untrained eye. You do need to wear them for 20-22 hours per day to make sure treatment progresses as planned, but it’s okay to take them out for short periods.

An example could be if you play a brass or woodwind instrument. Invisalign can be a good option for professional musicians or those studying music, because it’s safe to take them out for short periods in order to play your instrument. Regular braces can affect your technique, but Invisalign won’t have any impact.

What makes Invisalign one of the world’s most popular tooth straightening appliances?

Invisalign is a popular alternative to fixed metal braces for both adults and teenagers. At Surrey Braces dental clinic in Weybridge we have treated many patients successfully using Invisalign. So if you are looking for a subtle route to straighter teeth, and one that fits around your lifestyle to boot, read on to find out how you could be next. . .

tooth-straighteningMore than three million people can’t be wrong

To date, more than three million people across the world have benefitted from tooth straightening with Invisalign. Whilst we may not have treated quite that many patients at our Weybridge dental centre, we are fully accredited to provide this treatment, and have scores of past patients who are happy to testify to the success of the Invisalign system.

Weybridge Invisalign: the benefits

1) Discretion

At our Weybridge dental clinic we appreciate that subtlety and discretion are important to many adults looking to straighten their teeth. After all, they have hard-earned professional careers and active social lives to think about, and it’s not hard to understand how metal braces could get in the way.

Invisalign is different. It will go unnoticed by the untrained eye, because it is made out of clear plastic, and fits snugly over the teeth.

2) Dental hygiene

Many people come to our Weybridge dental clinic worried about keeping up their hygiene during orthodontic treatment. It’s not actually as difficult as some people make out; as long as you visit your hygienist to learn how to clean around fixed braces, it doesn’t have to be a struggle.

However, with Invisalign there is no need to adapt you hygiene techniques at all. You take it out to clean as your dentist or hygienist instructs, then brush and floss your teeth as normal at the same time.

3) Diet

Sugary and sticky foods such as caramel should still be avoided during treatment, but unlike with fixed braces healthy choices such as raw celery and carrots are not off-menu, because you take the appliance out to eat.

4) Comfort

There is no metal at all involved in Invisalign treatment, and it uses low forces.

How Invisalign can secretly straighten your teeth

Invisalign clear aligners are a popular alternative to fixed braces for straightening teeth. At Weybridge dental clinic Surrey Braces, many patients have benefitted from treatment with Invisalign. Read on to discover how you could be next…

invisalign teethBenefits of teeth straightening

At our Weybridge dental clinic we are always keen to emphasise the additional health benefits of teeth straightening treatment in addition to a beautifully-aligned smile. When your teeth are properly aligned it is easier to keep them clean. There are fewer gaps in which dental plaque can build up, so by straightening your teeth with Invisalign you can cut your risk of gum disease and tooth decay – so long as you visit your hygienist and dentist regularly and keep up good oral hygiene at home, of course.

Maintaining your dental hygiene couldn’t be simpler with Invisalign. Unlike fixed braces, which require the mastery of special cleaning techniques for the duration of treatment, with these aligners all you need to do is pop them out for cleaning. Brush and floss your teeth as normal at least twice a day, and remember to take your aligner out when you eat and drink.

Weybridge Invisalign

When you come into our Weybridge dental clinic for an Invisalign consultation, your orthodontist will carry out an assessment to ensure that this is the most appropriate treatment option for your clinical needs.

Invisalign is backed up by advanced computer software, so your Weybridge orthodontist will be able to show you the projected results of treatment (and all the stages along the way) before you begin.

Treatment involves the use of a series of clear, removable aligners that sit snugly over your teeth and gently guide them into a new position. Every patient’s needs will vary, so your orthodontist will let you know how many Invisalign aligners you will need. You change your aligner fortnightly as your teeth begin to move.

Because they are crafted from clear plastic, these aligners are invisible to the untrained eye. At the end of treatment you will need to wear a retainer. We offer several subtle retainer options at our Weybridge clinic.

The benefits of using Invisalign to straighten your teeth

Invisalign clear aligners are a tooth straightening treatment designed to work around your lifestyle. They are one of the most popular treatments at Weybridge dental centre Surrey Braces, which offers a number of both fixed and removable appliances to discreetly reposition your teeth.

straighten-teethAt our Weybridge dental clinic we are always keen to point out that there are more than just cosmetic benefits to be gained from straightening your teeth as an adult. When you improve the alignment of your teeth, you make them easier to keep clean, because you reduce the number of areas where dental plaque can gather and be difficult to remove.

Of course, you still need to practise good dental hygiene at home, and should visit both your dentist and hygienist as frequently as they tell you to, but so long as you do so then straightening your teeth can reduce your risk of both dental decay and gum disease – two major factors in premature tooth loss.

How Invisalign works

Whereas traditional orthodontic appliances are fixed to your teeth for the duration of treatment, Invisalign aligners are safe and easy to remove at home. Of course, you still need to wear them the majority of the time to ensure your treatment progresses as planned, but you can take them out for short spells to eat and drink, to clean, and to brush and floss your teeth as normal.

Invisalign fits comfortably over your teeth and gently guides them into a new position. Treatment takes place in fortnightly increments – you change your aligner every two weeks. At the end of treatment you will need to wear a retainer. We have a number of discreet retainer options available at our Weybridge clinic.

One of the reasons Invisalign is among the most popular treatments at our Weybridge clinic is that as well as being removable, they are made from clear plastic, which renders them invisible to the untrained eye in everyday life.

You will need to come into our Weybridge clinic for monthly check-ups during treatment to make sure that everything progresses as planned. Treatment times vary; your orthodontist will advise you how many aligners you will need.

The benefits of Invisalign for adult tooth straightening

Invisalign is a clear and comfortable alternative to fixed braces for straightening adult teeth. At Surrey Braces dental centre in Weybridge, they are one of the most popular discreet orthodontic appliances around. Unlike some subtle appliances, which are best designed for mild cosmetic correction, Invisalign can be used to treat a wider range of concerns.

invisalign-teethIf you are interested in a more discreet way of straightening your teeth, we invite you to join us at our Weybridge dental clinic for an Invisalign consultation. Your orthodontist will conduct a thorough clinical assessment to check if this is the most appropriate method of straightening your teeth.

Our Weybridge dental clinic offers a number of other subtle orthodontic options if Invisalign is not deemed suitable for your needs. However, if it is, your orthodontist will take impressions and photographs of your teeth as necessary to aid with treatment planning.

Invisalign is supported by the latest 3D computer software, which means that your orthodontist will be able to show you the projected end result of your treatment, as well as how your teeth will look during the various treatment stages. A further clinical check will be performed before you commit to your aligners.

Your Invisalign aligners will be made up at the company’s US laboratory, and you will be recalled to our Weybridge dental centre when they are ready.

Treatment with Invisalign takes place in fortnightly increments. You need to change your aligner every couple of weeks as your teeth begin to move. Because everybody’s dental situation is different, the number of aligners required to complete treatment will vary from patient to patient. Your orthodontist will let you know how many you will need during the treatment planning stage.

A huge advantage of treatment with Invisalign is that you can take your aligners out for brief spells at home. Of course, you need to wear them most of the time – ideally for between 20 and 22 hours per day – to ensure treatment goes as planned, but you can take them out to eat, drink, clean, and brush your teeth. What’s more, thanks to their clear nature, nobody will notice you are wearing them.
