Why have Invisalign™?

Invisalign vs BracesOne of the main reasons that adults don’t like having braces is because they are so obvious, not many people are prepared to have traditional metal train track braces as an adult.

This is where Invisalign offers you an alternative and is completely wireless.

Take a look at this photograph here, it’s difficult to believe that the woman in the foreground is actually wearing braces!

But it’s true, Invisalign is almost completely imperceptible, clear and effective.

Why have orthodontics?

Did you know that straight teeth are also healthier teeth? One of the hardest to reach areas to clean teeth is in between, yet this is exactly where you need to clean every day as this is where the bacteria lurk.

These bacteria feed on sugar in your food so it is vital that you clean in between the teeth every single day, preferably using a floss. The problem if your teeth are crooked is that it’s difficult to get floss between them and much easier if they are straight.

So not only do straight teeth look better they are actually easier to keep clean too.

What is Invisalign™?

Invisalign consists of a series of clear aligners. Each aligner puts a small amount of pressure on your teeth in the desired direction and moves them just a little bit towards their final destination.

Every two weeks you will replace your aligner with the new one which will continue this process.

The typical Invisalign treatment takes approximately 18 months to 2 years to complete.

How does Invisalign work so well?

Invisalign StepsInvisalign works so well due to a number of factors:

  1. The digital imaging that is done at the beginning of treatment.
  2. The planning stage, again all done digitally.
  3. The clear aligners which are comfortable and easy to wear and almost imperceptible.
  4. You can remove the aligner for convenience when eating and cleaning.

At the beginning of your Invisalign treatment you will undergo a Clincheck©.

Impressions of your teeth will be sent off to the Invisalign centre where they will be digitised. We will then receive back a video showing your teeth before and after treatment.

This video will actually show your teeth moving on the screen.

Here’s an example of what this Clincheck© process looks like.

You will need to wear your Invisalign clear braces for at least 20 hours per day, removing them only to eat and clean your teeth. So long as you follow this process and stick to your treatment plan you will see amazing results within the time originally agreed.

Invisalign Finance

What would life be like with straighter teeth?

Just take a few moments to imagine now how much better you might feel with straighter teeth, an increasing confidence is often a primary reason people go ahead with orthodontic treatment, and that’s exactly what it provides. Added to this the advantages of being able to keep your teeth cleaner when they are straighter means that orthodontics is an extremely valid and important part of modern cosmetic dentistry and dental health.

More Invisalign questions answered

We know price is an important consideration for you. There is no way to accurately answer this question without first coming in for a consultation. At that initial meeting the dentist will examine you and take xrays etc. From this he will be able to give you an accurate figure of cost. In our practice the average investment is in the region of £2000+/- – this will include all necessary impressions, records, radiographs, all aligners, any refinements needed and retainers. There are many factors that determine the cost of your Orthodontic treatment: how extensive the issues you want corrected, how long your treatment plan will last, where you live, and the specific treatment details prescribed by your dentist or orthodontist.

We would carry out an extensive oral health assessment ensuring that you are dental ready for any treatment. We would need to make sure all teeth are disease free and the gums healthy. This will provide optimum conditions for the best result.

The best and cheapest way is to book in for a smile assessment. At this appointment we can see if which treatment is suitable for you and what kind of final result you would expect.

Each individual case varies. This can range from 6 months to up to a year for the other forms of treatment.

There are very few downsides to these systems. With Invisalign you will be required to remove the aligner or braces when you are eating to prevent food getting stuck under it and for 6 months smiles with brackets you need to ensure your teeth cleaning is excellent.

There could be some discomfort during the initial stages of tooth movement. The way orthodontics works is to introduce constant but steady pressure on your teeth. This results in you only feeling light pressure on the teeth. You would not experience any pain, just some discomfort, which means the teeth are moving.

Been to my second appointment at dental smiles had my impressions done it was a breeze, I have a diabolical gagging reflex so I did what Dr Patel asked me to do and I went through it without any gagging whatsoever, in past times at other dentists it was always a rush to get you in and out with no consideration for the patients but at dental smiles what they have to do you comes second the nerves disappear after a reassuring chat and gentle approach they go through everything without any problems, which is why this is the dental practice to head for when you have any problems what so ever, don't be afraid of this practice, they are out of this world, ggggreat workread more

Told I needed a crown for a simple filling which fell out. Decided to trust her word and get it done. When the temporary filling fell out, she was unavailable for a week, while I called every day, walking around with a hole in my mouth. Turns out she actually was in the practice, but was too keen to leave every day at 5pm to provide basic care to her customers. Also told I needed a filling on another tooth for a superficial spot of decay. Saw another dentist about this who advised this is an out of date practice - superficial decay can recover and is best left to heal until it becomes a problem. Now I suspect the crown was also overkill to hand out a larger bill. I was also advised to get a splint, which would cost £900 - the "Rolls Royce" of splints (how very professional...). Another dentist advised that this can be done for £450. Not the same "Rolls Royce" - but they at least provide a more affordable option. Takes ages to get appointments - don't expect anything for 2 weeks. Receptionist seems to think she runs the practice. Bottom line is this place is run as a business, not a health care facility. Private patients are subsidising care for students, but don't expect any better service for your hard earned money - you're just a number in their books, and they're going to try making that number as large as possible.read more

I had a really great experience here, as a student. Friendly, quick and easy to book appointments. An appointment of mine had to be rescheduled and the process was very straightforward and with no inconvenience, so am grateful to them for that. I would recommend to any London based students!read more

I have been a patient for over three years now. Everyone at the centre is great. Dr Au is extremely competent and always willing to explain the situation clearly so that the patients can make the best choice. The hygienists are very professional. The nurses are always nice and reassuring and the reception staff is lovely and super efficient.read more

Good price and friendly, but I was told I need a filling however another dentist (who family members have used and trusted for years) assured me that I don’t. I got the impression that they were more interested in me spending money than the health of my teeth. The dentist also recommended I pay something like £50 to attend a session on brushing. Overall not great.read more

Carla and her team have looked after my teeth for 5 years now and I have always received excellent service even though I can be an awkward patient particularly with taking impressions. Under her care I have become a less nervous dental patient. Gemma the hygienist also performs wonders to my teeth and in a very professional manner. The surgery has ultra modern equipment, with excellent reception staff who are always helpful. I highly recommend the practice.read more

These guys are on point!! A really client centred service the moment you walk through the door. I had a hygiene not too many weeks ago with Emma which was the best I've ever had. Also what i really like is the that elite professionalism of Dr Jones is reflected in her front of house staff too, Jeeva always does an excellent job at making me feel welcome and valued, I'm really glad i found this place.read more
