Orthodontics is the practice of correcting a patient’s jaw and teeth, to make sure that they are correctly aligned, and the teeth are chewing correctly. This can be an extremely advanced process, as there are many factors that can contribute to a misaligned set of teeth. One of the most common jobs for an orthodontist to do is to realign crooked teeth, for general and cosmetic reasons. Severely crooked teeth can pose a risk to your oral health, as the teeth can grind together, and therefore become eroded, and exposed to decay and cavities. Therefore, if you have crooked teeth, it is important to see a dentist as soon as possible. If you are looking for orthodontics in Weybridge, then we are available for a consultation.
Invisalign is a relatively new form of orthodontics, that works to realign crooked teeth with a unique method. Fixed braces will use a wire that is attached permanently to the teeth and will be easily visible. Invisalign works in a different way, and instead uses a series of braces that are replaced every two weeks. Invisalign though not quite as effective as fixed braces, however, carries many benefits that mean they are quite often the favoured choice for adults.
Invisalign is made from transparent plastic material that is a perfect mould of your teeth, so they will be almost invisible when they are worn. This is a great benefit to some adults who may be self-conscious about receiving dental treatment, as most people will not be able to tell that you are undergoing dental treatment. Another benefit to Invisalign is that they can be easily removed and reinserted, which means that you can eat and drink whatever you like and not have to worry about the ramifications it might have with your braces. It also means you can undergo treatment such as teeth whitening at the same time.

Incognito is another form of treatment that has many benefits of Invisalign, but also those of fixed braces, and is a form of treatment that resembles both. Much like fixed braces, Incognito braces are permanently attached to the teeth. However, Incognito braces are attached to the back of the teeth, so that they remain invisible, much like Invisalign. There are some great benefits to Incognito treatment that make them a desirable option. While they have a fixed wire element to them unlike Invisalign, they are slightly more effective than Invisalign, and there is no need to remove them when eating or drinking.
