Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break, sending you to your doctor for an emergency visit.
Invisalign aligners are made from patented SmartTrack material, which is comfortable and provide a good fit. They are also trimmed based on your gum line for comfort and appearance. The Invisalign aligner system have successfully improved over 6 million smiles, including 1.4 million teen smiles.
Invisalign - usually every 6-8 weeks but this will vary on your treatment plan and whether you are utilising the Dental Monitoring app. Fixed braces - You will usually need to have appointments every 8 to 12 weeks to make routine adjustments. It is not advisable to start treatment if you know you will not be able to keep regular appointments.
Invisalign - The length of treatment depends on multiple factors, like how complex your case is and how often you wear your aligners. Your doctor will determine exactly how long your treatment will take based on your specific needs. On average, Invisalign treatment time is 12 to 18 months, though you can start seeing results in a matter of weeks. Treatment times vary greatly between patients. The average treatment time for NHS fixed braces is 15-18 months as long as the brace is well cared for and all instructions given are followed. It is important that you attend your appointments as failure to do so may delay treatment.
Invisalign patients experience a couple of hours of very mild aching when they change to their next aligner. Fixed braces - you may experience a little discomfort for the first few days after the fitting and adjustments as the teeth start to move. This is to be expected and is not a cause for concern. Your cheeks may also be sore initially until they become used to the brace. If necessary, take your usual painkillers until things settle down.
Yes definitely. Your teeth are actually at greater risk during orthodontic treatment and it is particularly important that you keep up regular contact with your own dentist.
Orthodontic treatment for patients under 18 can be provided for free if the treatment need is great enough. Each patient under the age of 18 will be assessed and IOTN scored. IOTN is the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Needs. This system must be used under NHS regulations to identify patients who are eligible for free Orthodontic NHS treatment. If you would like further information regarding IOTN you can follow this link the the BOS (British Orthodontic Society). Unfortunately we are unable to treat adults under NHS arrangements. If you do not qualify for NHS treatment and you would like to know more about what we can offer you please click here for Treatments and prices.
Although this decision is made as part of a comprehensive orthodontic assessment for each patient, it is our philosophy that the vast majority of cases are best treated without removing healthy teeth.
Although changing your orthodontist is best avoided if possible, as orthodontists operate in different ways, we advise have a consultation with one of our orthodontists who will be able to indicate to what extent transfer will lead to a setback in your treatment be able to offer you some additional treatment planning to avoid this.
Wearing a retainer after any orthodontic treatment is an important step, because it keeps teeth stable in their new positions. If you want your teeth to remain in their ideal position, it’s best to wear a retainer as directed.
Crowns (tooth caps) are usually not an issue in Invisalign treatment. However, sometimes in Invisalign treatment small tooth-coloured composites called ‘attachments’ are bonded onto teeth to help achieve certain movements, and these are more difficult to bond on crowns than on teeth. In these cases, the location of the crowns needs to be carefully evaluated. Because bridges firmly link two or more teeth together, these can sometimes be more resistant to tooth movement. We will be able to assess this at your consultation can provide further advice.
Invisalign: No. Unlike traditional wires and brackets, with the Invisalign® System you can eat whatever you like while in treatment because you remove your aligners to eat and drink. This also makes it simple to brush and floss your teeth after each meal to maintain good oral hygiene, before re-inserting your aligners. Fixed braces: you will need to be careful and try to avoid hard, crunchy or sticky foods. For the best oral hygiene it is best to avoid sugary or acidic foods and drinks.
During treatment, you should wear your aligners all the time, except when eating, brushing or flossing teeth. It is recommended to wear them 22 hours a day
The vast majority of patients report no effect on speech. However initially there may a minimal adjustment period associated with having something new in the mouth.
