Straighten your teeth with Incognito in Weybridge

Demand for teeth straightening treatments has risen steadily in recent years in the UK. Because of this surge in demand, new treatments have been developed to fit more easily into patients’ lifestyles. New materials and technologies have been applied to the area of teeth straightening to make much more comfortable, inconspicuous and efficient treatments.

Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, Incognito treatments can effectively straighten your teeth without you having to live with a mouth full of visible metal, like with traditional braces.

One of the main reasons adults may have been deterred from straightening their teeth is the appearance that comes along with fixed braces. Often associated with teens, professional people don’t want their lifestyles to be disrupted by wearing a mouth full of metal.

Incognito in WeybridgeIncognito in Weybridge: how does it work?

Incognito is the modern and invisible alternative to traditional braces. In Weybridge, Incognito works on the same principles as traditional braces, but as lingual braces, they are fitted to the back, rather than the front, of the teeth. This means that no one will notice them unless you tell them they are there.

Each set of braces is custom made to fit your teeth exactly. This makes for a higher level of comfort and efficiency than can be offered by traditional braces. Each patient has an individual treatment plan to fit their needs. Once the braces are fitted they will be constantly working to achieve the results you want.

Unlike some other invisible brace systems, such as Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about removing them for eating, drinking and cleaning.

In Weybridge: Incognito or Invisalign?

Invisalign is another form of discreet braces that are increasingly popular – more than four million patients worldwide. Invisalign uses custom-moulded clear plastic aligners that fit over the teeth and adjust their position over time.

The choice you make depends on the condition of your teeth and in what way they are misaligned. For example, Invisalign is often considered as a cosmetic treatment as the adjustments that it can make are less significant from a health standpoint than traditional and lingual braces.

A great first step is to drop into the surgery and talk to our dentist to discuss your options in more detail.

Teeth straightening is now an official secret

Wanting to have your teeth straightened without everyone knowing that you are wearing braces is only natural, especially if you are an adult in a position of responsibility or you work with the public. You need Invisalign nearly invisible aligners to get you through the straightening process without telling the whole world what you are up to.

Invisalign in WeybridgeCumbersome metal ‘train track’ braces are hard to miss. It’s almost like they are shouting out of your mouth, crying out for attention, dying to give the straightening game away. And some people, just seem to think the mere fact that they can see your braces, gives them carte blanche to ask you lots of personal questions about your teeth. But at Weybridge Orthodontics in Weybridge, Invisalign braces sign your official secrets act. They won’t tell if you don’t.

Using Invisalign in Weybridge to straighten your teeth is not like using the more well-known brackets and wire braces systems that most of us associate with teeth-straightening.

This is because Invisalign, which is often misspelt as Invisaline, uses transparent rigid plastic trays, which look rather like mouth guards, that fit over the teeth.

The trays are made from detailed scans taken by your dentist in Weybridge. Invisalign’s laboratory in the United States receives these digital scans and uses them to calculate the trajectory along which your teeth need to move to become beautifully aligned. The laboratory makes a series of aligners. Each tray represents one step along the way from the current position of your teeth to the position they need to reach for your desired smile of lovely straight teeth. The pressure that the plastic applies to the teeth is what gently nudges them along the way.

You need to wear each tray for a week to 10 days before moving on to the next one. The number of trays depends on your individual case.

Invisalign aligners are also removable. They are easy to clean, and so are your teeth. Also, you can take them out if you really don’t want anyone to see you are wearing aligners, perhaps for a super-special event like a wedding, a job interview, or an important business meeting.

Let orthodontics in Weybridge help you on your way to a lovely smile

At Weybridge Orthodontics in Weybridge, we believe that optimum oral wellbeing comes from having a mouth and teeth that are free from gum disease and cavities. One way to avoid both is to have straight teeth, which harbour less plaque and work better together. This aspect of dentistry is known as orthodontics. This is an area of dentistry that we focus on.

Simply put, orthodontics is the term for the dental science of aligning the teeth and ensuring the way the upper and lower jaws bite together well.

Orthodontics in WeybridgeLess decay and gum disease

In Weybridge, orthodontics treatment has great benefits. When you have your misaligned teeth straightened out, you will find them far easier to keep clean with brushing and flossing. This reduces the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

Less pain

You can also get rid of a great deal of unnecessary pain by having your bite improved. When the teeth do not bite together properly, the pressure of chewing is unevenly distributed. This can lead to pain in the jaw muscle and joint, and even headaches and neck ache.

Orthodontics in Weybridge offers several systems for realigning teeth and balancing out the bite.

Discreet braces

If you don’t want anyone to know you are having your teeth straightened, you can have braces fitted to the inside of your teeth. These lingual braces still use wires and brackets to gently move teeth into a new position, but their visibility is radically reduced.

If you need braces on your front teeth, we can also offer tooth-coloured brackets that blend in discreetly with your teeth.

Or you may be suitable for Invisalign invisible braces (often misspelled at Invisaline). This system uses a series of clear plastic trays that fit snugly over the teeth. Each tray represents one step along the trajectory of the teeth to their new position and the pressure from the very thin rigid plastic moves them gently along. The aligners are removable for eating, drinking, cleaning and discretion at important occasions.

Orthodontics in Weybridge is available for both children and adults. Children may have consultations from the age of seven.

You only have one smile so make it a good one!

Have you noticed how much information you subconsciously pick up about someone when you meet them for the first time? Their friendliness, their happiness levels, their character are all assessed, and all from how much they smile and what that smile is like.

This kind of visual information, picked up with thinking within the first few seconds of meeting someone, can make or break the smiler’s hopes and dreams. We are all smilers, and it’s pretty disquieting to think we can be judged as miserable or unfriendly because we don’t smile, and the person judging us is not to know that the reason we’re not smiling is simply because we are ashamed of our teeth.

Invisalign in WeybridgeWeybridge Orthodontics can make sure you never miss out on life’s opportunities because your smile lets you down.

We offer smilers in Weybridge solutions to crooked, overcrowded or misaligned teeth. Treatments include Invisalign in Weybridge. This is a revolutionary method for straightening teeth without the use of brackets, bands or wires. Instead of the usual braces equipment, Invisalign uses clear plastic trays, rather like mouth guards, to move your teeth into a straighter position.

This method of teeth straightening, sometimes misspelt as Invisaline, has several advantages over the wire and bracket variety. If you associate ‘train-track’ braces with adolescence, and do not wish to suffer the embarrassment of being seen wearing such equipment beyond teenage years or early 20s, Invisalign in Weybridge could be for you.

The clear plastic trays fit so snugly over the teeth that they almost cannot be seen at all, and do not interfere with speech.

Invisalign trays are removable too, making brushing and flossing as easy as ever, and you can eat whatever you like. Also, at a pinch, you can remove the tray for a few hours for ultra-important business or social events (although you should not make a habit of this).

Invisalign treatments take only about 12 months, instead of years, and are a more affordable option.

Please note, Invisalign in Weybridge is designed for people with mild to moderate misalignment issues. Why not come in for a consultation and find out if it’s right for you?

Backstage braces

Increasingly, at Weybridge Orthodontics, we have adults coming in to see us to find out if there is a way they can get their teeth straightened without having to go for the railway siding look. Having train track braces does, it’s true, tend to lead to a bit of an onslaught of personal comments and questions, however well meant.

Here in Weybridge, Incognito is proving to be a great solution if you are looking to keep your dental treatment private.

Incognito in WeybridgeWe include Incognito amongst the wide range of straightening systems that we offer because these braces are incredibly discreet but still able to resolve pretty complex alignment issues. You can find out all about them by coming for a consultation, but here are some basics to whet your appetite.

Incognito in Weybridge is the only system that puts the braces onto the insides of the teeth, rather than on the front. Cleverly positioning the braces behind the teeth hides them from the casual observer, and no one will know you are wearing braces unless you wish them to.

No braces, no worries

One of the things that puts a lot of adults off getting their teeth straightened is the thought of having to spend months and months with metal ‘train track’ bracket and wire braces on the fronts of their teeth, making them look like a gangly teenager, when they are in fact a highly responsible breadwinner. If this is what stops you getting the lovely, straight smile of your dreams, then we’ve got great news for you. In Weybridge, Invisalign is a wonderful way of straightening your teeth without the hassle and embarrassment of traditional metal braces.

Invisalign in WeybridgeHere at Weybridge Orthodontics, we love being able to help people achieve a smile to be proud of because we know just how much it can boost their confidence. This can have hugely positive consequences throughout their lives. So it is sad that many adults forego the results because they cannot face the few months of treatment required to get them.

Invisalign in Weybridge makes the whole process so much easier. Instead of metal brackets and wires cemented onto the teeth, Invisalign uses a series of transparent plastic aligners that look like very thin mouth guards.

The Invisalign treatment journey

Invisalign aligners are manufactured to fit pinpoint accurate measurements taken from your mouth with a scanner. These are fed into a computer programme to create a virtual 3D treatment plan showing how your teeth will need to be moved and how they will look on alignment. This goes to the Invisalign factory in the USA, where your aligners are 3D printed out of smooth plastic. Each aligner has carefully placed pressure points on the inside. You snap it on over your teeth and the points put pressure on your teeth to nudge them one tiny step towards alignment. This takes one to two weeks, and then you move onto the next aligner.

Not only are the aligners almost undetectable on your teeth, but they are also removable. You can continue to eat whatever you like and keeping your teeth clean remains as easy as ever. You just need to wear them for 20–22 hours a day.

Are your wonky teeth a pain in the neck?

At Weybridge Orthodontics, we believe that optimum oral wellbeing depends on two things. The fundamental platform for oral wellbeing is having a mouth and teeth that are free from infection and cavities. Equally vital, however, is having a smile that is a pleasure to look at. The basis of both good health and a lovely smile is having straight teeth that bite together correctly. This aspect of dentistry is known in the profession as orthodontics. In Weybridge, this is an area of dentistry we make it our business to excel at.

Orthodontics in WeybridgeIn Weybridge, orthodontics treatments can boost your health and your self-confidence. When treatments with us have straightened out your misaligned teeth, you will find them much easier to keep clean with brushing and flossing. There will be far fewer crevices for plaque and tartar to build up in and for food to hide in. Less plaque means a lower risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

When your teeth have been aligned, and your bite corrected, it will eradicate a great deal of unnecessary pain. Pain comes from teeth that do not bite together properly. The uneven distribution of chewing pressure creates pain in the teeth that bear the brunt of the work, and this can, in turn, create pain in the jaw muscle and joint, and even headaches and neck ache.

What are your options?

When you choose orthodontics in Weybridge, we have several systems for realigning teeth and balancing out the bite, each with its own benefits.

If you want to make sure no one knows about your treatment, you might go for braces fitted to the inside of your teeth. These lingual braces use wires and brackets to gently move teeth into a new position, but they are hidden behind your teeth, not in front.

If you are happy with discreet braces on your front teeth, in Weybridge, orthodontics has treatments with transparent ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured wires that blend in with your teeth rather than dominating them.

We also offer clear aligners. These plastic trays fit it snugly over the teeth and are removable for eating, drinking and cleaning.

Orthodontics in Weybridge is available for both children and adults.

Why people love Invisalign in Weybridge

Did you know that over 4 million people worldwide have now had their teeth straightened using Invisalign? That’s a lot of people in just 20 years. This system of teeth straightening is a firm favourite with people who come to see us at Weybridge Orthodontics, and there are several reasons why.

The perks of Invisalign

Invisalign in WeybridgeFirst of all, Invisalign in Weybridge is a removable device. It snaps on over your teeth like a mouth guard and is usually kept in place by two discreet metal clips on your back teeth. Anyone who has ever had a fixed bracket and wire brace will testify to their longing to be able to just take it off and clean it rather than having to poke about with interdental brushes and get dental floss in behind the wires. It can seem to take forever. Not so with Invisalign. You just snap it off your teeth, eat your food, give your aligner a clean and also your teeth, and then snap it back on again. That said, you must not drink anything but plain water when you have your aligner in. And that can be a plus. Patients report losing weight when they are no longer having mindless snacks and cups of coffee at their desks during the day.

Secondly, Invisalign is invisible. This is the aligners’ best selling point. They are incredibly thin. Only 0.3 millimetres of transparent, rigid plastic hugging your teeth, getting between them and the world. Your colleagues will have to get up Every close and peer at your teeth to spot them, and that kind of behaviour doesn’t go down too well at work. So, you can now have your teeth straightened as an adult and not have everyone know what you are up to. You can tell people if you like, but it might be more fun to keep quiet and see if anyone actually notices the gradual straightening of your teeth.

In Weybridge, Invisalign works best on mild to moderate misalignments, so we can’t use it on all of our patients. If you would like to find out if it can work for you, why not come in for a consultation?

Privacy for your straightening

If you are in a managerial position at work, or perhaps have a job dealing with the public, or work in the beauty industry, then you need to present a well-groomed appearance. Nowadays, well-groomed includes having good, straight teeth, but doesn’t include braces. It’s a bit of a Catch 22 situation: you want to straighten your wonky teeth so you look better, but, in order to get those straight teeth, you’re going to have to look worse, possibly for a long time.

Incognito in WeybridgeYes, there are braces that are as good as invisible, or at least very discreet, but they often have been designed to fix mild to moderate misalignments, and, some people’s teeth are a bit more of a mess. Maybe yours are and you’ve already been told you can’t have the invisible aligners. Well, don’t worry. Help is at hand with a little piece of braces genius called Incognito. In Weybridge, you can get Incognito from us at us at Weybridge Orthodontics.

What is Incognito in Weybridge?

Incognito is a fixed braces system with a twist. The brackets and wire go on the inside surfaces of your teeth, next to the tongue, rather than on the outside surfaces next to the cheeks and lips.

The brackets are made of gold alloy and each one is custom-made from detailed measurements to exactly fit the inside surface of each tooth. Due to the way that Incognito is made, it can take several weeks to manufacture the braces for you.

There is a bracket for each tooth, which means that Incognito in Weybridge can be used to solve even complex alignment issues. Teeth can only move so fast, and such issues take longer, so you might expect to be wearing these braces for a couple of years.

However, these braces, once they are in place, are completely hidden from view. Only you will know they are there, and you can finally resolve that terrible Catch 22 situation.

If you would like to find out if Incognito can help you get straighter teeth, why not come in for a consultation? We’d love to help you get that lovely smile you deserve.

We are by your side for your orthodontics in Weybridge

Having orthodontics in Weybridge is no small decision. Treatment can last for up to two years, plus another year of wearing a retainer to hold the work in place. At Weybridge Orthodontics in Weybridge, we recognise the journey you take when you decide to straighten your teeth. Which is why we want you to know that we are on hand to resolve any difficulties that come up with your braces as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Orthodontics in WeybridgeBreakages

There are a number of issues that may come up with whatever orthodontic appliance you are wearing:

  • Ligatures or elastic bands coming loose. If a rubber ligature (elastic band) comes off your brace, not to worry. This isn’t urgent and can be resolved at your next routine appointment.
  • Protruding wire. If one of the wires in your braces is sticking out, cover it with brace wax (which we can supply). If this doesn’t resolve it, make an appointment to have the wire trimmed.
  • Loose brackets, wires or bands. Contact us immediately and have a chat with our reception staff. They will let you know whether you need to come in to have your braces adjusted or whether it is possible for you to wait until your next routine appointment.

Health issues

Orthodontics in Weybridge may also cause your mouth to become sore. Issues include:

  • Feelings of discomfort. This is quite normal after braces are fitted or adjusted. Wait for a few days to see if it settles down and call the surgery if you have any concerns.
  • Mouth ulcers. Not an emergency but can be very painful! Apply some soothing gel, which you can buy over the counter.
  • Lips and cheeks. If you find that your new braces are irritating you, perhaps especially when you eat, you can use relief wax to ease the pain. Break off a small amount, roll it up into a ball then flatten it to cover the uncomfortable area.
