Invisalign

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.

With Invisalign, teeth straightening can fit around your lifestyle

Invisalign offers an orthodontist a subtle, practical alternative to braces for straightening your teeth – and one that has minimal impact on your lifestyle. At Weybridge dental practice Surrey Braces, this is just one of a number of discreet options we offer to patients who want straighter teeth. Whatever your orthodontic situation, we are committed to finding the perfect treatment to suit your needs.

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.

When you come into our Weybridge clinic for an Invisalign consultation, your dental professional will assess if this is the best course of treatment for you.

Invisalign aligners can be used to correct a wider range of orthodontic issues than many cosmetic brace systems. Impressions will be taken of your teeth and your aligners will be made up. Every case is different, so the exact number of aligners you will require will be discussed by your dentist. You change your aligner fortnightly.

How Invisalign can straighten your teeth, with minimal impact on your lifestyle

invisalign-teethOrthodontics no longer needs to mean braces

Orthodontics has advanced a great deal over the past three decades, meaning that at our Weybridge dental practice we are able to offer a number of discreet solutions to teeth straightening. Whilst some of these treatments involve using either tooth-coloured metal appliances or lingual braces, which are fitted to the back surfaces of the teeth, clear aligners such as Invisalign are often a viable, invisible alternative.

Sometimes referred to as “invisible braces”, treatment with Invisalign in fact involves using a series of clear, removable aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth and guide them into an improved position.

At our Weybridge dental centre we are always keen to emphasise that as well as making aesthetic improvements, and boosting your self-confidence, discreet orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign can also improve your dental health. It’s wrong to think of these devices as purely cosmetic appliances; ask any dentist and they will tell you that straighter teeth are healthier teeth, because they are easier to clean.

Invisalign: a tooth-straightening treatment to fit around your lifestyle

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that enables your dentist/orthodontist to realign your teeth with minimal impact on your lifestyle. At Weybridge clinic Surrey Braces we believe that, whenever possible, dental treatment should fit around the patient, which is why we are pleased to offer a number of discreet teeth straightening treatments.

tooth-straighteningOrthodontics isn’t just for children and teenagers. At our Weybridgedental centre we are seeing an increasing demand from adults for teeth straightening treatment. It could be that you didn’t have the chance to have your teeth straightened in your youth, or you may have experienced adult relapse – in which your teeth shift back to their original position after treatment is complete.

A lot of adults face a conundrum: they wish that they had straighter teeth, but they are reluctant to wear obvious metal braces. That’s where discreet treatments, including Invisalign, come in.

At Surrey Braces in Weybridge we are always keen to point out that teeth straightening treatment is never just about aesthetics. It is easier to keep well-aligned teeth clean, because there are fewer gaps for food particles to get trapped in and for plaque and tartar to build up. Choosing to straighten your teeth, whatever your age, is an obvious boon for your dental health, and can have a positive impact on your general health, too.

Invisalign can be used to correct a wider range of problems than standard cosmetic braces. Treatment takes place in fortnightly increments; your dentist or orthodontist will prescribe you the required series of aligners and you will need to change them every two weeks as your teeth start to move.

Two huge benefits of Invisalign treatment are that the aligners are both clear – so invisible to the untrained eye – and removable, meaning they have next to no impact on your day-to-day life.

Treatment with Invisalign involves the use of a custom-made series of clear aligners that are made to fit comfortably over your teeth, gently guiding them into a new position. Your treatment progresses in two-week increments, which means that you will need to change your aligner every fortnight as your teeth begin to move into their new position.

At the end of treatment you will need to wear a retainer to make sure your teeth don’t try to shift back to their original position. We offer a number of discreet retainer options at our Weybridgedental clinic.

Whilst the aligners are easily removable, you should wear them for approximately 22 hours a day. You will require periodic check-ups at our Weybridge clinic during treatment.

invisalignThe growing demand for straighter teeth

More and more adults in the UK are seeking orthodontic treatment. Whether you missed out on treatment as a teenager, or you had treatment only to discover that your teeth have moved back to their original position, if the alignment of your teeth is making you unhappy we invite you to join us at our Weybridge dental practice for a consultation.

Straightening your teeth with products such as Invisalign has more than just cosmetic benefits. It is easier to keep your teeth clean if they are properly aligned, because there are fewer gaps in which food particles can get trapped and dental plaque can build up. Therefore, with regular visits to your dentist and a good oral care routine at home, straightening your teeth can reduce your chances of developing tooth decay or gum disease.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign comprises a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, guiding them gently into an improved position.

Because they are clear, Invisalign treatment is invisible to the untrained eye in daily life, and because they are removable they have minimal impact on your lifestyle. You can remove them for short periods to clean and to brush/floss your teeth, as well as to eat and drink.

Invisalign: the benefits of aligner treatment

Invisalign clear aligners are just one of the teeth-straightening treatment options available at our Weybridge orthodontic clinic. They offer a number of benefits in addition to straighter teeth, including making dental hygiene a breeze during treatment and having minimal impact on your lifestyle.

invisalign-weybridgeWhy you should consider orthodontic treatment

As well as causing embarrassment when smiling – which can have a negative impact on your self-esteem, personal and business relationships – crooked and misaligned teeth are also more difficult to clean, as food particles can get trapped in gaps, leading to a build-up of dental plaque, which increases your chances of developing gum disease or tooth decay. By using aligners such as Invisalign, or tooth-coloured braces, to straighten your teeth, you can help to improve your dental health.

Why choose Invisalign?

When you come to our Weybridge practice for a consultation with an orthodontist, they will undertake a careful examination of your teeth and gums to assess the type and amount of correction you require.

Invisalign can be used to correct a range of mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Treatment involves using a series of clear aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth to gently guide them into an improved position. The exact number of aligners required, and the length of your treatment, varies from case to case, and will be discussed by your orthodontist at the outset of treatment.

Because they are removable, Invisalign aligners have minimal impact on your lifestyle. Of course, you should still wear them most of the time to ensure swift and effective treatment, but you can take them out for short periods – helping to avoid the dental hygiene difficulties sometimes associated with braces.

Invisalign is just one of the discreet orthodontic options available at our Weybridge clinic, so even if they are not the best option in your case, we will find an appropriate subtle method of teeth straightening.
