Invisalign: straighter teeth without a metallic glint on show

At Surrey Braces in Weybridge, Invisalign clear aligners are one of the most popular methods for patients to straighten their teeth. There is increasing demand for ways to correct tooth alignment problems without the whole world knowing about it. Depending on your individual needs, in many cases Invisalign could be the best option.

What is Invisalign?

weybridgeorthodonticsInvisalign is a system of clear aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and gently move them into a better position. Each set of aligners is custom-made following a detailed consultation at our Weybridge dental practice, so you can be sure that your aligners will fit your teeth perfectly.

Before starting treatment, your dentist will take a series of impressions and photographs and, with the aid of our state-of-the-art computer software, they will be able to show you what results you can expect.

Every patient’s needs will be slightly different, so the number of aligners you will require, and the length of your treatment, will depend on your individual circumstances. Your dentist or orthodontist will be able to advise you of this at the start of treatment.

As your teeth begin to move, you will need to change your aligner every two weeks or so. You will also need to come in for a check-up every few weeks at our Weybridge clinic so that we can check your treatment is progressing as planned. At the end of treatment, you will need to wear a retainer.

What are the advantages of treatment with Invisalign?

The most obvious advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners are clear, meaning that nobody will notice them in everyday life and no-one need know you are having treatment unless you choose to tell them.

Another big advantage is that the aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and drink, to clean, and to brush your teeth.
