Knowing the Invisible – Comparing invisible orthodontic treatments

Monday, January 30th, 2017

shutterstock_155143148 BOur patients often come to us looking for an orthodontic treatment, which will give them the smile they want without affecting their image or their confidence. The good news is that invisible braces are widely available now, and there’s a range of options for those who wish to remain incognito during treatment. Here are some of the options you may consider if you’re looking for invisible braces:

Invisalign

Invisalign is one of the world’s most popular orthodontic treatments. It uses clear aligners, which are virtually impossible to detect, to reposition the teeth. The aligners are removable, and you wear a series of custom-made appliances, with each one in place for a 2-week period. Invisalign is great not just because you can have treatment without anyone knowing, but also because it doesn’t affect your day to day life. You take the aligners out to eat and clean your teeth, so you can continue life as normal.

STb lingual braces

STb lingual braces offer an alternative to traditional fixed braces and invisible removable aligners. These braces are fixed to the teeth, but they sit behind your teeth, so they cannot be seen when you speak or smile. Fixed braces are guaranteed to work, and the process is very simple. Once the braces have been attached to the back of the teeth, you simply let them work their magic. You’ll need to keep your braces clean, but this treatment is rapid, and you’ll be having them removed before you know it. STb lingual braces are designed to target issues that affect the social 6, the front teeth, and this drastically reduces treatment time. Most cases are complete within 16 weeks.

We Offer The Ultimate In Discreet Braces

Friday, February 6th, 2015

2445507_blogDiscretion is key for many of our orthodontic patients and we are delighted to offer virtually invisible solutions, such as Invisalign, for common issues, including crowding, spacing and cooked teeth. With Invisalign, we can produce incredible results with minimal impact on looks or your day to day life.

What exactly is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a popular modern orthodontic system, which is designed to offer a discreet, convenient and flexible alternative to fixed braces. With Invisalign, clients receive a set of custom-designed appliances, known as aligners; these aligners are shaped to allow room for movement and they generate forces, which gently guide the teeth into position.

Invisalign is a versatile treatment and it is suitable for many patients; it is an excellent choice for people who are conscious of their image and those who have to maintain a certain look for work purposes and it can also be really beneficial for people who are worried about what others will say or think about them wearing braces. Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic and they slide onto the teeth; they are virtually undetectable when you speak and smile.

What happens when you have treatment?

After the consultation stage, you will receive your custom-made Invisalign aligners. The aligners are designed to be worn in a set order and each one should be worn for 2 weeks. Invisalign aligners afford your flexibility and simplicity, as they can be removed when you eat and brush your teeth; this means that you can continue to eat and clean your teeth in exactly the same way as you did before you started treatment.

Invisalign aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours per day to ensure good results. During the treatment process, your City Dental dentist will arrange frequent check-ups to monitor the progress of your treatment.

People of Leeds, invisible braces really are all they’re cracked up to be!

Saturday, February 8th, 2014

 18625044If you’ve read about invisible braces, you may have thought you were dreaming, but we have good news: invisible braces really are all they’re cracked up to be! If you’ve been thinking about braces for a while, but always been reluctant because you didn’t want to wear highly visible braces, now is the time to go for it! Invisalign is a modern alternative to traditional braces, which provides a solution for al those people who have avoided braces in the past based on aesthetics. Invisalign is not like traditional orthodontic treatments. Rather than using a fixed brace, which is made from metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to generate forces and straighten the teeth. These aligners are light and they are transparent, which makes them virtually invisible to other people. If you wanted to, you could go through the entire treatment process without anyone else even finding out that you are wearing braces. The treatment process is fairly simple. Before you wear your aligner for the first time, your treatment will be planned and the aligners will be made according to your personalised plan. Each aligner is different and the treatment works as a series, with each one worn for 2 weeks and removed to eat, drink and clean the teeth. Invisalign is suitable for most patients and it represents an ideal choice for those who want a discreet treatment, which also offers convenience and comfort.

Hiding no more with Invisalign in Leeds

Friday, February 15th, 2013

If you have ever had the ordeal of ever having to wear, or watch someone you love wear traditional fixed braces in Leeds, it isn’t the most pleasant of sites. It stunts self expression and makes you introverted while wearing them. Plus they can be a nightmare to clean and expose you to the greater threat of bacteria attacking your teeth. Nice to know then that those days have been thoroughly disposed of, thanks to Invisalign. This aligner turns every thought you may have of teeth straightening on its head. For a start, once you have been fitted with the first of many aligners, you can take it out whenever you want, allowing you to clean your teeth normally and which instantly removes the threat of bacteria and plaque building up in your mouth. The treatment works fast and depending on the complexity of your teeth, you can be done in as little as a year. But it is what Invisalign is made from that gives it its greatest quality of all: the aligner is made from a clear plastic which means that when fitted, it’s almost invisible! Pricey yes, but priceless- absolutely!

Invisibility for your Mouth in Central Leeds

Sunday, August 26th, 2012

There are a lot of factors involved in keeping a healthy balance to your mouth and one of those is the way your jaws come together.

If they close perfectly, then there is less stress placed upon the tiny joints of the jaws where they meet. But teeth don’t follow the rule book and for some people in central Leeds, teeth can develop awkwardly and grow crooked which means they have to be straightened by the use of a brace or aligner. Now this can throw up a lot of fears in some people.

Traditionally, braces have not been renowned for their beauty and wearing them can be an ordeal- that was until Invisalign came along. It comes in the guise of a gum-shield, but throws off the shackles of stigma that comes with traditional braces. It is made from a clear plastic, which from a vanity angle is marvellous because it is almost invisible when fitted and as the treatment progresses and you get fitted with different ones as your teeth move, you will find that your teeth move quickly, up to three times faster than other braces.

It can also be removed whenever it takes your fancy so from a hygiene point of view, this is another plus. It is more expensive than other treatments but the rewards of this treatment and the way it works far outweighs any costs incurred. Anyway, you need the treatment so why not make it a pleasurable one.

No Need to Feel Self-Conscious about Your Smile Anymore with Invisible Braces from Central Leeds Dentist

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Whether child, teenager or adult, having to wear braces can be an embarrassing experience. Invisible braces can now give you the dental benefits of braces while hiding the fact you wear braces. Permanently fixed braces are not now the necessarily best option for everyone. Your Central Leeds dental practice can offer a range of braces that will fit your unique needs, ask them if invisible braces may be right for you.

New types of invisible braces are made of clear plastic that is moulded to your exact specifications, meaning they blend right in with your natural appearance. They are normally removable and so can be removed when eating or for important social events. It is very important though that you wear them on average 22 hours a day in order to have the desired effect. As with all braces it is necessary to wear invisible braces for a minimum of several months and up to a year or two. The length of time it takes to have a permanent effect is largely dependent on the original position of the teeth and how much adjustment they need.

The fitting of invisible braces does not take too long but may take a few visits to your dentist. They will first consult with you on exactly what type of braces would be right for you. They will then need to take moulds, x-rays and photographs in order for the braces to be made to the exact shape and size of your teeth. The dentist will the fit them and likely ask you to return in a month or two to check whether they need any adjustments.

 

Discretion with Correction with Invisible Braces in Leeds

Monday, June 25th, 2012

There is a pretty good chance that most of us in Leeds are going to have to go through the pain and heartache of having a brace fitted at some point in our lives, and that is two years of psychologically being the ugly duckling with the playground ridicule that comes with it, not to mention how uncomfortable it is to wear. It is then very fortunate that future generations will not have to go through this torment as the world of dentistry has got its act together and started to knock-out aligners that leave the wearer feeling like a swan and that are ‘invisible’ when fitted into the mouth. The materials used in aligner manufacturing are more sympathetic on the eye and more aware of their surroundings- they match the colour of the teeth, from the plates to the wires and when wearing a fixed brace, that is heaven sent. But that is nothing compared some of the clear aligners from America; they truly are ‘invisible’, being made from a clear plastic, but they can also be taken out at any time AND they work far quicker than most other options around. Other braces and aligners can work from 6 weeks to 6 months so here, their invisibility work with speed- they are done and gone before you know it, and anyone else realises it. Ask your dentist about all these fantastic devices and your suitability before opting for second best.

Invisible Braces?! In Leeds?!

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

If you know that at some point in your life you are going to have to have your teeth straightened, you will have probably run all of the scenarios that come with it through your head as well, and there is a good chance you have painted quite a grave picture- a mouthful of metal for years clogged up with rotting food because it’s hard to remove…..that’s not good. But take a step back and now paint the complete opposite of that picture and you will arrive at the wonderment that is whipping around Leeds right now- Invisalign. Oh yes, this will blow all of those pre-conceived ideas you ever had about tooth straightening. Firstly, once you have signed on the program, you will then be fitted with one of many aligners that you will change throughout the course to keep your teeth moving. Now the best bits; Invisalign is made from a transparent plastic and once it is fitted, only a hawk would be able to tell that you are wearing it- IT’S INVISIBLE! Now if that were not enough, the aligner is not fixed which means you can take it out at any time and as long as you wear it for around 22 hours a day, that gives you 2 hours freedom to eat, socialise, kiss- whatever. Now if you needed any more convincing, this aligner on average, works in a third of the time than conventional braces. Bet that’s blown away your pre-conceptions!
