Invisalign Overview

Crooked or crowded teeth can ruin an otherwise perfect smile. But did you know you could transform yours and regain your confidence without the need for traditional fixed braces; bands, brackets or wires?

Invisalign uses a series of transparent trays – like a gumshield – that you change every two weeks to gradually move your teeth into a straight line. We have been transforming local Sutton patients’ lives for several years with Invisalign treatment. Our practice in Sutton, Surrey, services a wide range of Invisalign patients and we welcome new visitors and existing patients with equal enthusiasm. 

Invisalign retainers are safe and comfortable to wear (with no sharp edges), and they’re easily removable for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. The best bit is that they’re almost invisible, so nobody’ll notice you wearing them.

7 Reasons Why You Should Choose Invisalign

Discreet Appearance

Invisalign aligners are almost invisible, making them a preferred choice for adults and teens who are self-conscious about wearing braces. This discrete nature allows you to straighten your teeth without impacting your appearance.

Enhanced Comfort

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are made from smooth plastic with no metal brackets or wires. This design minimises discomfort and irritation to the gums and mouth, offering a more comfortable treatment experience.

Improved Oral Hygiene

Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can maintain better oral hygiene. You can brush and floss your teeth as usual, reducing the risk of plaque buildup, tooth decay, and gum disease, which are common concerns with traditional braces.

Convenience in Lifestyle

The ability to remove Invisalign aligners when eating or drinking allows you to enjoy your favourite foods without restriction. There's no need to worry about food particles getting stuck, as can happen with conventional braces.

Effective for Various Dental Issues

Invisalign is effective in treating a wide range of dental problems, from simple to complex cases. This includes overbite, underbite, crossbite, gap teeth, and crowded teeth, making it a versatile option for many individuals.

Predictable Treatment Process

Invisalign treatment involves advanced 3D imaging technology, allowing both you and your orthodontist to visualise the entire treatment plan from the start. This predictability ensures a clear understanding of the treatment duration and expected outcomes.

Fewer Orthodontic Visits

Invisalign typically requires fewer check-ups than traditional braces. The visits are mainly for progress monitoring, without the need for painful adjustments that are common with metal braces, making it a time-efficient choice for busy individuals.

6-Step Process for Invisalign Treatment

Step 1
Initial Consultation
The initial consultation for Invisalign typically involves a dental examination to assess your teeth's alignment, a discussion of your smile goals, and a review of the Invisalign treatment process, including costs, duration, and expected results.

Step 2
Customised Treatment Plan

Creating Your Aligners
Once the treatment plan is approved, your custom aligners are made using Invisalign's proprietary SmartTrack material. These aligners are designed to fit snugly over your teeth and guide them gently into place.

Wearing Your Aligners
You'll wear each set of aligners for about one to two weeks before switching to the next set. It's important to wear them for 20 to 22 hours a day for optimal results, only removing them for eating, brushing, and flossing.

Regular Check-ups and Progress Tracking
Throughout the treatment, you'll have regular check-ups with our orthodontist to monitor progress. Adjustments to the treatment plan may be made as needed.

Retention and Post-Treatment
To maintain your new smile, you'll need to wear a retainer. This critical step ensures your teeth stay in their new position. Regular dental check-ups continue to monitor your oral health and retain the beautiful results of your Invisalign treatment.

What Can Invisalign Fix

Crowded Teeth

Crowded teeth may worsen if not addressed, leading to difficulties in cleaning and the potential accumulation of plaque, which can escalate to tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Gaps Between Teeth

Teeth with spaces between them can harbour food particles and bacteria, heightening the likelihood of dental decay and periodontal complications.

Underbite

An underbite might hinder the proper functioning of your incisors or molars, contributing to the premature wear of teeth and potentially causing discomfort in the jaw joint.

Open Bite

An open bite might result in inefficient chewing and can potentially interfere with speech, possibly leading to articulation issues.

Overbite

An excessive overbite can lead to the accelerated wear of the lower teeth, damage to the front teeth, and may provoke discomfort or pain in the temporomandibular joint.

Crossbite

A crossbite can lead to the upper teeth biting into the lower teeth’s interior, which may result in the abrasion of tooth enamel, gum disease, and possibly even bone loss.

Invisalign FAQ's

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment which uses translucent, plastic trays to methodically shift teeth to their proper alignment. These aligners stand out for their near-invisibility and the convenience of removal for meals, dental hygiene, and flossing. The process involves the use of tailor-made trays, each worn for roughly two weeks, to gradually adjust teeth to their optimal placement.
The time required for Invisalign therapy can differ widely based on the individual’s dental complexity. Typically, the process spans from 6 to 18 months, though some individuals may notice improvements much sooner. During your initial consultation, your dental specialist will outline a more precise treatment timeframe tailored to your unique situation.
Compared to conventional braces, Invisalign offers a more comfortable experience. That said, it’s not uncommon for individuals to feel slight discomfort or a sense of pressure during the first few days upon receiving a new aligner set. This discomfort is often a signal that the aligners are effectively engaging, and it can generally be eased with standard pain relief medication.
Invisalign is primarily designed for adolescents and adults seeking a less noticeable alternative to metal braces for teeth straightening. It is adept at addressing various dental irregularities, such as spacing issues, overcrowding, and select alignment problems. Nonetheless, Invisalign might not be suitable for everyone, particularly in cases requiring advanced orthodontic intervention. An evaluation by an orthodontist is essential to ascertain if Invisalign aligns with your dental goals.

The cost of Invisalign treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case and the length of treatment. Costs generally aligning with those of traditional braces and ranging between £1,500 and £4,500. A significant number of dental insurance policies offer coverage for Invisalign just as they do for other orthodontic treatments. Furthermore, we provide a variety of payment and financing solutions to help manage the cost of treatment effectively.
