5 Brilliant Benefits to Invisible Braces

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

InvisalignIn days gone by, people used to think of braces as cumbersome metal devices, which were painful and unsightly. Today, orthodontic treatment looks entirely different, and a growing number of people are taking advantage of incredible invisible braces. If you’re thinking of having braces, here are five amazing benefits you could enjoy:

  1. Invisibility: of course, the most important benefit of invisible braces is the fact that nobody can see them. Most of us are conscious about our appearance, and the idea of wearing braces doesn’t appeal to many. With invisible braces, you can get amazing results without any worry about what you look like.
  2. Confidence: confidence is very important. For many of us, the way we look can impact our confidence levels. Wearing braces can make people more self-conscious. Invisible braces enable you to go through treatment without feeling anxious about what others think or how you look now that you’ve started treatment.
  3. Simplicity: invisible braces enable you to get on with life as normal, even though you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Most invisible braces are removable, which gives you flexibility, and more control over your treatment.
  4. Positive impressions: many people have put off having braces in the past because of the stigma attached to wearing visible braces. With invisible braces, you don’t have to worry about people making judgments based on your braces. If you’ve got a high-powered job, it’s not going to affect your career prospects. If you’re trying to fit in at school, your braces aren’t going to make you the butt of jokes and jibes. Nobody will know that you’ve had braces until your smile looks perfect, and you’re ready to show it off to the world.
  5. Results: invisible braces don’t just boost your confidence during treatment. They also provide you with a stunning smile that will make you look and feel a million dollars. Most of us consider our smile our most important feature, so it’s worth investing in invisible braces.

Straighter Teeth are More Achievable Than Ever Before!

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

header_image4How the process works

Invisalign is a progressive tooth straightening alternative to braces. This innovation uses clear tooth retainers that support your teeth and provides them with the scaffolding they require to pull them into an aligned position.

You firstly need to be assessed by your dentist, which will result in impressions of your teeth being taken, so sizes and shapes – everything – is taken into account.

Using the model coupled with your personal treatment plan (given to you by the dentist) software can then calculate the projected movement of your teeth from their current position to perfect alignment.

The virtual tour of your teeth’s progress allows you to feel more comfortable about exactly what the result will look like.

After your assessments and viewing your treatment plan, a series of nearly invisible retainers will be manufactured. You will then be given a set of these, which you are required to change every two weeks. The Invisalign retainers should be taken out when eating, drinking and cleaning.

The basic idea is that each set of retainers is shaped fractionally closer to what you want your teeth to look like, to allow your teeth to grow into the position you desire little by little.

What does Invisalign treat?

Invisalign can be used to cure overlapped, gappy, crossbitten, over/underbitten teeth and is designed not to impede on your lifestyle. Braces can do this, however, with Invisalign you can take your retainer out and continue to live your life – eventually with a straight, confident smile.

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

header_image4There has been a significant increase in the popularity of adult orthodontic treatment in recent years and one major contributing factor is the introduction of a range of impressive removable braces. For many, removable braces offer solutions to issues encountered by orthodontic patients in the past and give them greater freedom during treatment. At City Dental Leeds, we’re delighted to offer some of the world’s leading removable brace treatments:

  • Inman Aligner

The benefits of removable braces

Braces have changed a lot over the last decade or so and if you still imagine painful and cumbersome metal train-tracks when somebody mentions braces, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Today, fixed and removable braces offer a range of benefits for both teenage and adult patients and you can get the smile you’ve always dreamed of with minimal hassle or discomfort.

Removable braces are a very popular choice because they offer:

  • discretion
  • flexibility
  • convenience

The Inman Aligner is a removable aligner and features a very fine metal bar and a coiled spring located behind the front teeth. Designed for patients with minor needs, this brace takes just 16 weeks to straighten the teeth and affords you the luxury of being able to eat and clean your teeth normally. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible as they are made from clear plastic. Treatment involves wearing a series of specially designed appliances in sequence and usually takes around 6-18 months.

Removable braces enable you to get on with life as normal. You can take your braces out when you eat, so you can enjoy a wide range of foods without any worries about getting food trapped in your braces and you can clean your teeth in exactly the same way, so you won’t have any greater risk of dental disease.

About Invisalign

Invisalign is an aligner system that uses a sequence of custom-made plastic aligners to re-position and align the teeth. Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic and slide onto your teeth. Once they are sat in place, it is virtually impossible for other people to detect them.

Invisalign works differently to traditional braces and uses multiple appliances, rather than a single orthodontic device. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and the sequence follows until treatment is complete.

As well as offering virtual invisibility, Invisalign also offers patients:

  • comfort: the aligners generate gentle forces and there are no metal parts
  • convenience: Invisalign aligners are removable, so they fit into your normal day to day life very easily. You won’t have to adapt the way you eat, the foods you buy or the way you clean your teeth
  • improved oral health: braces can be notoriously hard to clean, but with Invisalign, there is no added risk of decay as you remove your aligners to brush your teeth
  • confidence: many people worry about having braces because they think they look unattractive or affect the way other people view them. With Invisalign, you can go through the process without any worries at all about what you look like or how you come across to other people

If you think Invisalign sounds like the perfect match for you, why not call us today and book a consultation? Our friendly dentists will explain the ins and outs of orthodontic treatment, go through the pros and cons of Invisalign treatment and carry out some tests to check whether or not you are a good candidate for this system.

Invisalign Gives Everyone Something to Smile About

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

2904346_blogYou may be surprised to hear that a trip to the dentist could give you something to smile about, especially if you suffer from nerves or dental anxiety. But with Invisalign, we promise that you won’t be able to stop smiling after every dental visit. This innovative invisible brace will transform your smile in secret, boosting your confidence and ensuring that you won’t be able to stop showing off those beautiful pearly whites!

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign offers something different to traditional orthodontic treatment and it works in a different way. Forces are still used to exert pressure on the teeth, but instead of using a fixed appliance made from brackets and wires, Invisalign uses multiple removable appliances, known as aligners. Each patient is given a set of custom-made aligners before they begin treatment and they are specifically designed to work in sequence. each aligner works for two weeks before being swapped for the next in the order. The aligners are shaped slightly differently and they are made according to a detailed and personalised treatment plan, which is drawn up using the latest imaging software. This plan charts the movement of the teeth and ensures that the aligners encourage movement while also providing enough space for the teeth to move.

Invisalign aligners are removable, but they should ideally be in place for 22 hours a day at least. You can take them out very easily to eat, drink and clean your teeth.

Who is a good match for Invisalign?

Invisalign is ideally suited to patients who are desperate to remain incognito during the treatment phase. The aligners are virtually invisible, as they are made entirely from light, clear plastic. They are capable of correcting minor and moderate issues and are generally recommended for patients who require a limited amount of movement.

If you would like to find out if Invisalign is the perfect match for you, call today and arrange a consultation!

No Need to Hide Your Smile During Invisalign Treatment

Monday, February 16th, 2015

header_image4If you’re thinking about having braces, you may assume that you’ll need to hide your smile for months to come. But with Invisalign, you can show off those pearly whites without any worries about how you look or what your friends or colleagues will think. Invisalign braces are virtually invisible, so you can feel confident throughout your treatment.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a modern, innovative orthodontic treatment, which employs a series of custom-made aligners to straighten out orthodontic issues. Invisalign aligners look similar to gum shields, but they are much thinner and lighter and they are completely clear. When they are in place over the teeth, it is very hard to notice them.

The Invisalign treatment process differs to normal orthodontic treatment because more than one appliance is used. In fact, each patient is given a series of aligners, all of which are bespoke and the aligners are swapped every two weeks. Each one is slightly different and treatment is planned in advance so you can see exactly how your teeth will move and what your smile will look like at the end.

The many benefits of Invisalign

Understandably, many people are worried about having braces because of the way they look, the treatment duration and the social stigma attached to them. However, with Invisalign there’s no need to even think about these potential stresses. Invisalign aligners are clear, so nobody will be able to tell that you’re wearing a brace, you can take them out when you’re out for dinner or drinks and you can go to meetings or dates without anyone being drawn to a highly visible brace.

As Invisalign aligners are removable, they give you more flexibility and reduce the impact of treatment on your normal daily routine. You don’t have to worry about getting bits of food lodged in your brace and you can brush your teeth in the normal way. As teeth cleaning is straightforward, there is also a lower risk of oral health problems associated with wearing a brace.

How long will treatment take?

Treatment times vary depending on how much tooth movement is required and the complexity of the orthodontic prescription. Most patients wear their aligners for around 12 months.

The beautiful world of Invisalign in the City of Leeds

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

386703_blogThere are some things that come along in the dental world that blows your mind and when it comes to having your teeth straightened in the city of Leeds, there is none more exquisite than Invisalign; this treatment is brilliantly unique in the way it works. Once you have been measured up and have been approved with the programme (it doesn’t work for everybody), then you will be kitted out with around a half a dozen aligners that you swap over as your teeth start to move into line. These aligners are all removable so that is superb when it comes to oral hygiene. But aside from the fact that this is very fast, Invisalign’s best quality is that each aligner is manufactured from a clear plastic; what this means is that whenever it is in the mouth, anyone around you can barely tell you’re wearing it. Of course, all of this luxury comes at a price, and this product doesn’t come cheap- it is the more expensive options to go for. But come on, the benefits of going down this road far outweigh the costs…at least give it a look.

Now that’s a selling point if ever one was needed with braces and aligners: the amount of stigma that removes, especially for a young person, is unbelievable and the price? WHO CARES! Go for it!
