Why should you choose Invisalign braces over regular traditional wired braces? Invisalign clear braces are removable and widely used to treat a wide number of alignment and bite issues, including crossbites, crowding etc.
Invisalign also offers our patients discretion, because they are near invisible you can complete your teeth straightening treatment without worrying about your appearance.
Our high standard of quality orthodontic care has earned us a reputation as the go-to dental studio to straighten and correct misaligned, crooked teeth.
Being one of the most recommended dental clinics means that we accept an array of patients from Thames Ditton (KT7 and KT10 postcodes), Thames Ditton and Esher.
The modern, virtually invisible alternative to traditional metal braces uses a set of clear aligners that adjust the position of your teeth comfortably and efficiently.
In comparison, traditional braces can often be uncomfortable and straighten the teeth at a slower pace than Invisalign braces.
Many of our Invisalign patients have claimed that wearing clear braces feels like wearing no braces.
The revolutionary process has allowed our patients to receive their tooth straightening treatment without feeling self-conscious about their smiles.
As Invisalign uses transparent, thin aligners it has offered many adult patients the chance to discreetly carry out their treatment and avoid the stigma attached to metal braces.
Additionally, Invisalign braces are removable and can be taken out to eat and brush teeth – ensuring a strong standard of oral health hygiene and health.
“More than 2.5 million people around the world have had the treatment already.”
One of our most experienced dentists, Dr Michael Marshall has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry and is accredited in the use of Invisalign and aesthetic dentistry.
An accomplished doctor, he has received a certificate recognising his work in Cosmetic and Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry from Advanced Dental Seminars.
If you’re considering braces to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is fast becoming the recommended popular treatment for its discreet properties. It is because of this reason, we are seeing many adults undergo the treatment.
Aligners are widely used to treat a range of bite problems and tooth alignment conditions both mild and moderate, including:
Dr Marshall will invite you for an oral examination at our East Molesey practice to assess the mouth’s state.
Here, the orthodontist will determine if the Invisalign treatment is suitable.
If so, together you will begin to design a unique treatment plan custom made to suit you.
2. Start your treatment
The next phase will see the patient receiving a set of custom-made aligners that will be required to be worn every day.
On average, you will swap out the aligners for the next series every two weeks.
The Invisalign dentist will schedule follow-up appointments every six or so weeks to evaluate the treatment’s success.
3. A smile transformed
Most adults will be able to see the results of the treatment within 12 months, but this can vary from case to case. Once the process is complete you’ll have a straight smile and a renewed confidence.
You will then continue to wear retainers at night up to six months after treatment.
At the Gentle Dental, we have many different types of braces and payment plans available, making it easy to find the option most suitable for you.
