Teeth straightening (short term Orthodontics) for adults
Do you feel embarrassed when you smile, are you conscious of your crooked teeth? Straightening your teeth and being able to smile with confidence could be one of the best investments you ever make.
Here at Blyton Dental we offer Invisalign®- the most advance method of straightening teeth. Most adults hate the thought of wearing unsightly metal fixed braces to straighten teeth, but Invisalign® is an almost invisible treatment and it will not interfere with your lifestyle.
Our experienced orthodontic team will guide you through the Invisalign® treatment process. Invisalign® is a safe, reliable and effective teeth straightening treatment which will leave you with a smile that you will want to show off.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® uses a series of custom-made clear ‘invisible’ trays, called aligners. Discreet and comfortable, the aligners can treat a wide range of concerns including crooked teeth, gaps, overcrowding and crossbites. Invisalign® works by the aligners gradually moving your teeth into the desired position.
As Invisalign® aligners are removable, you can brush and floss with ease, allowing for better oral health care during your treatment. The aligners are worn both day and night and can be removed when you eat, drink, brush, floss and for special occasions!
Typically, you will wear your 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 at home.
Your dentist will need to see you on average every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Once the treatment is completed and Invisalign® has straightened your teeth, you may find improvements in your overall gum health too. Teeth and jaws that are not properly aligned can cause improper bites, which can lead to increased wear on the tooth enamel. You can be super confident with your new smile, and at the same time improve your dental health!
Health benefits following Invisalign® Treatment
An amazing smile is of course a healthy smile. Crowded or widely spaced teeth can result in swollen, red gums, which is a sign of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, the gums will fit securely around them and provide a strong defence against periodontal problems. Once treatment has completed and Invisalign® aligners have straightened your teeth, you may find improvements in your overall gum health.
Improved chewing and speech
Teeth and jaws that are incorrectly positioned, turn in slightly or look overcrowded can lead to chewing problems and speech difficulties. The Invisalign® system will align your teeth and will alleviate these issues, giving you a happier and healthier smile!

Why choose Invisalign®
The metal wires and brackets of traditional fixed braces often trap food, which can lead to a build of up plaque and eventually lead to tooth decay. 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.
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, without any mess (no need for gooey impressions!) or discomfort. 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.
Blyton Dental offer Invisalign® Teen, 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 have any extractions.
Invisalign® Teen also moves 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.
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.
If you are considering any adult orthodontic treatment including any of the Invisalign® family, please contact us to take advantage of our free initial consultation. We would love to show you how the Invisalign® system and iTero® Intraoral Scanner work together to create the smile results you want.
