One of the first things you notice about people, particularly in the public eye, is their smile. Beautiful, straight teeth will improve your appearance, and of course your confidence! If you are dreaming of a celebrity smile where do you start?
Teeth that turn in slightly, or look overcrowded, can really affect the way you feel about smiling. Crooked or overlapped teeth are also difficult to keep clean and this can have a serious effect on your tooth and gum health if harmful plaque forms.
Most adults hate the thought of wearing unsightly metal fixed braces, but what if there was a treatment for straightening teeth that was almost invisible and did not interfere with your lifestyle?
Invisalign® is fast becoming a favoured method of straightening teeth, and our experienced orthodontic professionals will guide you through this reliable, safe and effective treatment, leaving you with a fantastic smile that you will want to show off.
Invisalign® uses a series of custom-made clear ‘invisible’ trays, called aligners. Discreet, comfortable and removable, the aligners can treat a wide range of concerns including crooked teeth, gaps, overcrowding and crossbites.
The metal wires and brackets of traditional fixed braces can be uncomfortable and often trap food, this can lead to a build of up of plaque. As Invisalign® aligners are made of plastic and are removable, you can brush and floss with ease, allowing for better oral health during your treatment. Invisalign® works by the aligners gradually moving your teeth into the desired position.
Here at Blyton Dental we offer a free Invisalign® consultation. Using our state-of-the-art iTero® scanner we will take digital impressions of your teeth, the iTero® scanner is an extremely accurate and efficient tool that looks like a small wand. 3D images of your mouth are produced quickly and comfortably, with no need for gooey impressions! We will assess the problems that you have with your teeth, discuss a treatment plan and even show patients how the final results will look.
Typically, you will wear your bespoke Invisalign® aligners for an average length of 6-12 months. During the treatment you will change your aligners weekly for the next aligner in the set, this easy process can be done by the patient at home.
Your dentist will need to see you on average every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. The aligners are worn both day and night, only to be removed when you eat, drink, brush, floss and for special occasions.
Once the treatment is completed and Invisalign® has straightened your teeth, you may find improvements in your overall gum health. Teeth and jaws that are not properly aligned can cause improper bites, which can lead to increased wear on the tooth enamel. Have the confidence of a new and straighter smile, and at the same time improve your dental health!
When considering any form of dental procedure, price is an important factor. The cost of Invisalign® will be dependent on your specific needs, such as the extent of your misalignment and how long your treatment will last. Generally, the cost varies from £1500 to £3450
See for yourself just how much Invisalign® braces can transform your smile
Blyton Dental also offer Invisalign Teen® and Invisalign® Lite. Invisalign Teen® is a great option specifically designed for teenagers (11-18 years) who don’t want to wear ‘train track’ type braces. Like the adult version, Invisalign® aligners are virtually invisible and even the most self-conscious of teenagers can smile with confidence throughout the treatment process. In most cases, Invisalign® Teen should be able to straighten teeth without having to extract any.
Invisalign Teen® also move teeth gradually with each set of plastic aligners. Teen® aligners have embedded blue wear-indicators which fade in colour when the next set of aligners are needed and they are designed to cope with eruption of canines, second premolars and molars.
Invisalign® Lite is the ideal clinical solution for those who want an affordable way to improve their smiles. It can be used for simple corrections of up to 2mm, crowding or spacing. The treatment time is shorter (maximum 6 months using up to 14 aligners) and therefore the treatment is very cost effective.
A new addition to the Invisalign® family, Invisalign® i7 is specifically designed to achieve minor tooth movements in patients with minor crowding, spacing or orthodontic relapse.
