Could Invisalign Invisible Braces Work For You?

Are you considering changing your smile with Invisalign braces? Perhaps a friend had enviable results and you’d like to try the same thing? Are you unsure whether the Invisalign invisible braces are right for you, or maybe you’re unsure about what exactly Invisalign is? Don’t worry, we’re here to help…

What is Invisalign?

Essentially, Invisalign is a system that straightens your teeth using a series of removable almost invisible braces that are custom-made for your teeth. As you swap each aligner every one to two weeks, your teeth will move little by little, progressively moving towards the desired position.

How do invisible braces work?

Many people assume that Invisalign invisible braces will only work for minor teeth straightening issues, but they’re very much mistaken. The Invisalign System can be used to treat a variety of moderate to severe teeth straightening issues, including:

Crossbite – A crossbite is when the upper and lower jaws are misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth and can happen on both the front and sides of the mouth.

Overbite –An overbite is when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. This can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth.

Underbite –As the name suggests, an underbite is the opposite of overbite, which occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the upper front teeth. It can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars that can lead to tooth wear.

Overcrowded teeth –When there is a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally it can lead to plaque accumulation and an increased risk of gum disease.

Widely spaced teeth – The opposite of overcrowded teeth, widely spaced teeth occur when you have extra space on your jaw.

All of these oral issues can be rectified with Invisalign!

Pros of using the Invisalign treatment?

Reduced discomfort- You may feel slight pressure after a change of aligners but compared with classic braces they are less painful. This is perfect for nervous patients who might be reluctant to enquire about traditional fixed braces.

Invisible – Probably the largest appeal is that Invisalign is very subtle, meaning other people will barely be able to notice the treatment.

Eat your favourite food – Craving for a snack? No problem! Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you have the freedom to eat, chew and drink.

Removable – Invisalign aligners are removable! You can remove them before eating/drinking and easily brush and floss to maintain good oral hygiene.

Clear Treatment Schedule – Invisalign treatment allows you to visualise each stage of the treatment process, from the beginning to the end, giving you a clearer picture of the treatment duration.

Are you sold yet? One of the best things about Invisalign treatment is certainly the minimal impact it has on your everyday life. Invisalign aligners are more comfortable then fixed braces and barely noticeable, so you can wear them and still do the things you love and live your life as normal!

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.

I recently needed some urgent treatment and after trying a couple of dentists in the area, dental solutions were the only dentist that agreed to see me, genuinely nobody else showed any interest in helping me. The receptionist I spoke to initially was super compassionate and understanding and did all she could to get me in asap. I saw Lauren for all of my appointments, and I’ve now had: a composite filling, root canal and emax crown and just yesterday had a wisdom tooth extracted. I don't know what Lauren does but I have had zero pain or discomfort with any treatments during and after. I'm extremely happy with the results of her work. She definitely knows her stuff and filled me with the utmost confidence whilst in the chair! I literally cant find any fault with any of the experiences I have had so far. They go the extra mile and do it with a smile. What more can you ask for?! Definitely my dentist for the foreseeable future! Thank you Lauren and everyone!

Had my initial consultation with Lauren, truly professional and extremely friendly. She explained all my options in detail and following discussions opted for veneers and can't wait to see the end result.
