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.
