Invisalign

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.

Why Invisalign could be the perfect way to straighten your smile

Invisalign enables a dentist or orthodontist to straighten your teeth in secret. Not surprisingly, this system of clear, removable aligners (sometimes referred to colloquially as “invisible braces”) are one of the most popular treatments at Weybridge orthodontic clinic Surrey Braces.

Invisalign is just one of many that we use at our Weybridge dental centre, where both removable aligners and subtle fixed braces are available.

straighten-teethThere are a lot of benefits to be gained from straightening your teeth whatever your age, and not all of them are cosmetic. Whilst it’s true a lot of adult patients initially come to our Weybridge dental centre with concerns about the aesthetic appearance of their teeth, they are often pleased to discover there are health benefits to straightening their teeth, too.

Most dental health problems – tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath – are caused by inadequate hygiene practices. The problem with misaligned teeth is, no matter how good your oral hygiene routine, there are likely to be areas that it is hard if not impossible to clean properly at home. By straightening your teeth and reducing the number of areas in which dental plaque can build up, you can cut your risk of the aforementioned problems, and ultimately of tooth loss.

Invisalign teeth straightening for adults and teenagers

Invisalign is one of the most popular modern methods of teeth straightening available from Surrey Braces dental clinic in Weybridge. Unlike traditional braces, which are fixed to the teeth, this system comprises a series of clear, removable aligners, which fit comfortably over your teeth and guide them gently into an improved position.

invisalign-teethAt our Weybridge orthodontic centre, we believe that dental treatment should fit around your lifestyle as much as possible. The problem with traditional braces is that they often don’t; not only are the very obvious in the mouth, but also they are traditionally associated with lengthy treatment times. What’s more, a lot of people find their dental hygiene suffers when they wear fixed metal appliances for long periods of time, because they struggle to clean around their braces effectively.

That’s why we are pleased to offer a discreet, lifestyle-compatible alternative in the form of Invisalign. This treatment is suitable for adults and teenagers, so if you are interested in a subtler method of straightening your teeth, we invite you to join us at our Weybridge dental clinic for an Invisalign consultation.

Invisalign treatment in Weybridge

When you come to Surrey Braces for an Invisalign consultation, your orthodontist will first assess your dental situation to check that Invisalign is the most suitable treatment for you.

We will take impressions of your teeth and send them to the Invisalign laboratory in the USA. At a further appointment approximately three weeks later, we will perform a clinical check and will use the latest 3D software to show you the stages of your teeth’s movement, and the results you can expect.

The clinical check treatment plan will be used to make your customised aligners. This requires a deposit to be paid for your aligners to be made; we offer a number of finance options at our Weybridge dental centre.

Invisalign has many benefits. Because the aligners are clear, most people won’t notice them. Because they are removable, no special dental hygiene techniques are required during treatment. Although you need to wear your aligners approximately 20 hours per day so that treatment progresses as planned, they can be removed for eating and cleaning.

invisalign-teethThe benefits of teeth straightening

An increasing number of UK adults are opting to straighten their teeth later in life. Whether they missed out on treatment when they were younger, or had treatment only for their teeth to move back to their original position, there has been a huge increase in demand for adult orthodontics in recent years.

It’s wrong to think of this as a vanity project, or a result of the expansion in interest in cosmetic dental treatments caused at least in part by the rise of celebrity culture. Whilst it’s true that there are many aesthetic benefits to be gained from using braces or aligners to straighten your teeth, there are also numerous benefits to be had for both dental and general health.

When you straighten your teeth, you make them easier to clean, because orthodontic treatment reduces the number of hard-to-reach gaps where plaque can build up. So long as you visit your dentist and hygienist regularly, straightening your teeth can cut your risk of gum disease and dental decay.

Studies have linked gum disease to a number of general health concerns, including diabetes and heart disease, so teeth straightening with a subtle system such as Invisalign can benefit your general health, too.

Invisalign in Weybridge

Unlike braces, which are fixed to your teeth, Invisalign aligners are removable. When you come to our Weybridge practice for a consultation, your orthodontist will take measurements and impressions of your teeth for your aligners to be custom-made.

Made from clear plastic, Invisalign fits comfortably over your teeth. You can take your aligner out for short periods to eat, to clean, and to brush your teeth and you change your aligner every fortnight.

Invisalign: a discreet method of teeth straightening for adults

A large proportion of the adult population are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth, and straighter teeth are up there as one of the top smile wish list items. Thanks to the advent of discreet orthodontic devices such as Invisalign, a dentist or orthodontist can now straighten your teeth subtly. Join us at Weybridge dental practice Surrey Braces to find out how this treatment has helped scores of patients, and how you could be next.

teeth-straighteningIt is a bit of a misnomer to refer to discreet orthodontic devices as purely cosmetic. Of course, the aesthetic gains are what most people will notice first, but at our Weybridge dental centre we are keen to stress that there are numerous additional health benefits to be gained from such treatments as Invisalign.

One of the key points a dentist will give for adult teeth straightening is that straighter teeth are easier to keep clean. When teeth are poorly aligned, gappy, crooked, or crowded, it is easier for food particles to get trapped and for plaque bacteria to build up.

Even with good dental hygiene at home, you are likely to struggle to clean these areas efficiently, which can lead to dental decay and gum disease. By using Invisalign to better align your teeth, you make them easier to clean.

If you have front teeth that protrude (stick out), they are naturally more likely to be damaged, broken, or even lost through accident or injury. A trip or fall in which the first part of your body to hit the ground is your teeth could be very painful, and very damaging indeed. At our Weybridge dental clinic Invisalign is just one of the options for treating protruding front teeth.

Sometimes, a clinician will recommend orthodontic treatment before other cosmetic procedures, such as the placement of crowns or dental implants. In some cases, Invisalign can be beneficial to older patients whose teeth have drifted due to gum disease or tooth loss.

At Surrey Braces in Weybridge, we believe you are never too old to enjoy the benefits of teeth straightening treatment. Why not join us for an Invisalign consultation?

Introducing Invisalign: the subtle way to straighten your teeth

Invisalign is a very popular way for adults and teenagers alike to straighten their teeth with maximum discretion. At Surrey Braces dental practice in Weybridge, it is one of a number of discreet orthodontic treatments that we offer to enable our patients to enjoy the benefits of straighter teeth without the need to wear obvious metal braces.

invisalign-weybridgeThe benefits of straightening your teeth

At our Weybridge dental practice we are keen to stress that whilst Invisalign and other subtle orthodontic treatments are described as “cosmetic orthodontics”, there are always health benefits to be gained from straightening your teeth.

Crooked, crowded, and misaligned teeth are more difficult to keep clean. There are gaps that can be hard to reach, in which particles of food can get trapped, and plaque bacteria can then build up. This increases your chances of developing both tooth decay and gum disease, which can both ultimately lead to tooth loss.

Whatever your issues with the alignment of your teeth, contact the team at our Weybridge dental practice to find out how we can help. Here, we explore the benefits of treatment with Invisalign. . .

What is Invisalign?

Unlike standard braces, which are fixed in place, treatment with Invisalign involves the use of a series of clear aligners to gently guide your teeth into an improved position. Because they are removable, these aligners have next to no impact on your lifestyle and are invisible to the untrained eye in daily life. They also make it easy to maintain good dental hygiene during treatment, because you can take them out to clean them and to brush your teeth.
