More Than 5 Million People Have Gained Their Ideal Smile With Clear Braces
What Is Invisalign Treatment?
Invisalign is a state of the art clear braces system that allows patients to straighten their teeth invisibly and without all the hassles and limitations that come from traditional braces. The system is made up of clear plastic aligners which can correct all orthodontic concerns, including crowding, crookedness, gaps and all the bite issues like overbite, underbite, cross bite etc. The aligners are fully removable which means patients can still get to eat and drink all their favourite foods and beverages. It’s easy to keep teeth clean too, as long cleaning sessions are not necessary in the bathroom which if not adhered to strictly when wearing fixed metal braces, can result in surface staining which is highly undesirable.
The first step is to contact us to schedule a free consultation in London, also known as a free smile assessment. During this session, your dental expert will discuss your ideal results and any questions you may have. Impressions and X-rays will be taken if required, so that we may prepare your treatment plan and smile simulation. This effectively lets you try before you buy! you can see what your new smile could look like right in our practice thanks to our digital simulation.
You’ll have access to patient images showing before and after treatment results for all the key orthodontic concerns as mentioned above, including gaps, crowding, crooked teeth and any and all bite concerns.
Payment options are available and our expert reception team are happy to talk to your insurance company to see if insurance cover is averrable to fund your treatment. This includes general health insurance, dental insurance and specific orthodontic cover. Any orthodontic insurance cover can be used to pay for Invisalign treatment - be it clear braces or traditional old style braces.
More than 5 million people worldwide have transformed their smile thank to Invisalign, and clear braces have opened up possibilities like never before. This is especially true for adults who may feel self conscious about their teeth, smile or appearance but do not want highly visible braces to wear for a year or more.
Most orthodontic treatments take 12 -18 months which is a considerable amount of time to be wearing a device you are not happy with, and one which is indeed highly visible. For this reason adults love the idea of being able to get straight teeth without wearing highly visible braces. The other key reason is that clear aligners enable your lifestyle, and don’t restrict it. As the device is fully removable you can still enjoy all of your ideal foods and drinks, without having to limit your choices.
The comfort aspect is also important, as there are no sharp metal wires, the appliance is generally hassle free with fewer orthodontic visits required. For example there are no slipped or moving wires etc which can be sharp and result in soreness which needs to be adjusted quickly.
Clear braces are worn for around 22 plus hours per day. This can seem like a long time, but as the device is designed to fit into your lifestyle patients quickly find they are making progress without thinking about it. An application is provided allowing you to upload photos and measure your success on your way to your new smile.
At your first treatment appointment we will demonstrate the use of the device, including insertion and removal, wear time and cleaning. You will be given a schedule which will show you how often to change up to the next aligner in the sequence. This is usually every 1 - 2 weeks. A top tip we give is to change up before bed at night, so that your teeth can adjust to the aligner overnight. Patients find this is even more comfortable than changing during the day time, since the adjustment time takes place overnight.
Patients often wonder if they will sound differently when talking and wearing the aligners, the is true for the first few hours or first couple of days in general. But you will find you quickly get used to talking with your aligners, and then you will forget you are wearing them. Patients always comment on how invisible the aligners actually are!
Your treatment time will last for 1 - 1.5 years depending on your individual needs and the results you are looking for.
People often wonder how much Invisalign costs in Birmingham, West Midlands. This depends on your individual needs as treatment is custom. However as a guide, treatment costs between £1,500 - £5,000. And can be for your top teeth or bottom teeth only, or both your top teeth and bottom teeth together. It depends on your requirements, sometimes top and bottom treatment is required as there may be a change in your bite.
