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.

header_image4If you’d rather keep your braces a secret, we have the perfect solution for you! Invisalign is a clear brace system that affords you the luxury of undergoing treatment in complete secret. You can smile, chat to your friends and speak in public without anyone being able to tell that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.

This convenient, discreet system is suitable for patients with a range of minor and moderate orthodontic issues and it offers the option to remain incognito during treatment, as well as a number of other amazing benefits.

Many people imagine a metal fixed brace when they think about braces, but Invisalign is a completely different ball game. This treatment uses a sequence of specially designed bespoke appliances called aligners to straighten out issues like spacing and crooked teeth. The aligners are all different and they work in order, taking centre stage for 2 weeks at a time. Once the last aligner has done its bit, you’ll be able to show off your amazing new smile and everyone will be shocked to hear that you’ve been wearing a secret brace all along! Treatment is planned in advance and the bespoke collection of aligners is manufactured according to your personalised plan. The advanced software can also be used to show you what kind of results you can expect when you finish treatment.

What are the advantages of Invisalign?

Invisalign offers maximum discretion, but it also gives you flexibility and freedom, ease of use and comfort. As the aligners are removable, eating and drinking re completely stress-free and you can clean your teeth as normal. The clear aligners contain no metal bands, which require adjusting and they use gentle forces to move the teeth, so you won’t need to worry about tackling any pain.

If you’re interested in Invisalign, call us now to find out more and arrange a consultation. This could be just the treatment you’ve been looking for!

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!

Fanciful teeth straightening with Invisalign in Central Leeds

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012

One of the most annoying things about having your teeth straightened is that on average, most treatments allow everyone can see that you are having it done, leaving you wide open to some serious Mickey-taking. So then consider this: what if you could have your teeth straightened without anyone noticing? What if you could remove the brace whilst eating and cleaning without the damn thing becoming clogged up with food? And what if you could get such a device fitted at a dentist’s in centralLeeds? Yeah baby! Invisalign is here!! This is the ultimate gadget for those with crooked teeth. You first need to see if your condition suits this treatment and if you do fit the bill, then you will be measured up for a number of aligners that are swapped over as your teeth move, and they move on average three times as fast as traditional braces- though ironically, this doesn’t matter: the aligner is constructed from a completely clear plastic that when fitted to your teeth, is barely visible! During dramatic times such as flirting, kissing, or just ‘chatting’ someone up, the aligner can be removed (of course, great for cleaning your teeth as well!). What this whole device gives you is a freedom never known before in the world of orthodontics: it almost seems like a dream. Though it’s a little bit more expensive than other treatments, there is no doubt whatsoever that this is a treatment worth investing in- if only to avoid the ribbing!

Invisible Aligners for you in Central Leeds

Friday, July 29th, 2011

If we are all totally honest ourselves, none of us like the idea of having to wear a brace or an aligner, whatever our age. But then none of us like the idea of going through life having ugly, crooked teeth either….what to do eh? Well not to worry, because our American friends have come up with the solution- Invisalign and it’s available here in central Leeds right now. Invisalign has revolutionised every aspect of wearing an aligner. Its greatest advantage is that it is made from a completely transparent material, that once in the mouth, is almost impossible to detect from the outside- imagine the freedom that that affords to the wearer. Another delicacy of this device is that it is removable; most fixed braces are a nightmare to clean but with this, you can take it out, clean your teeth in the normal way and then pop it back in your mouth again, thus ensuring a healthy oral hygiene program throughout the treatment. Okay, this treatment is not suitable for everyone, it tends also to be more expensive compared to others, but if you need any-more carrots dangled in front of you to just how good Invisalign is:- though treatment times vary for each individual person, on average, this whole procedure takes around a third of time to complete compared other aligning methods on the market today.
