Want straightening but don’t want braces?

It’s a decades old conundrum. You want to get your teeth straightened, but wearing metal braces for a year or more is not going to do your professional image any good. So, instead, you just put up with your wonky teeth and hope to goodness everyone else can too.

Why put up with wonky teeth when there’s Invisalign in Kings Hill? Of course, you may be putting up with wonky teeth because you have never come across this brilliant way of straightening out mild to moderate misalignments.

Invisalign in Kings HillEven though Invisalign has been available for more than 20 years, it’s so discreet that unless someone tells you they are wearing these clear aligners over their teeth, you’d never notice.

Different from traditional braces

Invisalign in Kings Hill differs from bracket and wire braces in that there are no brackets and wires! Instead, you receive a series of smooth, rigid plastic aligners that look like mouth guards. They go on over your teeth, hugging the enamel and the gum line so closely that once they are in place, they pretty much disappear from view. Even you might not be able to see them when you glance casually at yourself in the mirror.

The aligners have carefully positioned pressure points located inside them. They press on your teeth, such that when you first put each one on, it will feel like it doesn’t fit. That’s deliberate. Stick with that feeling of discomfort and it was gradually ease over the next 7-10 days as the jawbone remodels itself to relieve the pressure.

When the aligner you are wearing starts to feel like a perfect fit, it has done its job. Discard it and put in the next in the series.

It takes a year on average for Invisalign to do its work. During this time, you must wear each aligner for at least 20 hours a day, but you take it out each time you eat or drink anything other than plain water.

Then brush your teeth and put the aligner back in. It’s that simple. No poking around behind brackets and wires to remove trapped food.

Easy straightening with Invisalign in Kings Hill

If you want fuss-free straightening with no fiddling around trying to clean between brackets, bands and wires, then you need to check out Invisalign clear aligners here at One Smile Oral Care.

Invisalign in Kings Hill is a great way for busy, efficient people to straighten their teeth without having to spend precious time locked in the bathroom trying to remove the last meal from their straightening device.

Invisalign in Kings HillAs well as being easy to wear and clean, Invisalign in Kings Hill has the added advantage of being so discreet that many people will not even notice that you are having your teeth straightened.

How Invisalign works

Invisalign uses a series of clear rigid plastic aligners that look like mouth guards. The plastic is so thin, at 0.3mm, that once the aligners are in place over your teeth, they become like a transparent layer of enamel. People will have to peer very closely at your mouth to spot that you are wearing Invisalign in Kings Hill.

Inside each aligner is a collection of carefully sited pressure points – bumps and ridges designed to press on your teeth to get them to move in the right direction.

You wear your aligners day and night, only removing them to eat meals and brush and floss your teeth. It is important to keep your aligners in. If you wear them for less than 20 hours a day, there won’t be enough sustained pressure to get your teeth to move.

Each aligner takes 7-10 days to complete its task and once it starts to feel as if it fits really well, it’s time to discard it and start wearing the next aligner in the series. As you move through the series, it will seem as if your teeth are straightening out by magic.

Who can have Invisalign?

If you have mild to moderate alignment issues and your teeth have all fully erupted then you are a good candidate for Invisalign in Kings Hill. Invisalign, which uses a pushing pressure, does not work on teeth that have only partially descended from the gums.

Are there health benefits to Invisalign in Kings Hill?

Most people are after Invisalign for cosmetic and aesthetic purposes. However, this innovative treatment can offer much more than a beautiful smile.

Invisalign in Kings HillInvisalign is our treatment of choice for straightening crooked teeth discreetly at One Smile Oral Care. This discreet but powerful treatment can treat many dental problems, both mild and moderate. Whether you suffer from an overbite or gapped teeth, learn how Invisalign in Kings Hill can improve your oral health.

Protect and strengthen your gums

When you have misaligned teeth, you are at greater risk of harming your gums. This is because it’s easier for plaque and bacteria to hide in the crevices created by your misaligned teeth, which can potentially cause gum disease and other serious gum problems. With Invisalign in Kings Hill you can straighten your teeth and protect your gum health at the same time. Not to mention that oral hygiene will become much easier.

Make your teeth stronger

Misaligned, gapped and overcrowded teeth create unnecessary pressure on your jawbone and this can lead to serious problems such as wear and tear of the tooth enamel, jaw pain and migraines. These issues are easily avoided with the help of Invisalign in Kings Hill.

Improve your digestion

Invisalign also offers digestive benefits. If you have crooked teeth you may have noticed that it’s difficult to chew and bite your food properly. This can lead to digestion problems and impact the regular process of the absorption of nutrients in the body. Proper nutrition is important for overall health and being unable to enjoy your food because of digestive problems caused by your misaligned teeth is not ideal. With Invisalign in Kings Hill you can enjoy your food and reboot your digestion.

Why choose Invisalign in Kings Hill?

Here at One Smile Oral Care in Kings Hill, Invisalign clear aligners are a popular teeth-straightening choice for our adult patients.

Invisalign in Kings HillSee right through you

No one loves the idea of wearing conspicuous braces. For kids, they don’t have much choice, as this is often the only way they can straighten up their teeth and realign out-of-place jaws. If you’re an adult looking for an adjustment for cosmetic reasons, you would probably question whether up to 2 years of wearing traditional braces is the best thing for you.

With Invisalign in Kings Hill, you don’t have to. These clear aligners are transparent once they are in place over the teeth. Sure, a dentist or your mum might be able to spot them if they were close up, but for most people you interact with, they won’t have a clue you are getting your teeth straightened.

Easy does it

The aligners are pretty low maintenance. They do need to be removed if you eat or drink anything but plain water, but all you need to do is rinse and brush them, brush your teeth, then pop them back in. One problem with fixed metal braces is that food can get caught in the brackets and wires, making a thorough cleaning difficult, and tooth decay more likely. Not with Invisalign in Kings Hill. As long as you have the discipline to remember to take them out and most importantly, put them back in afterwards, your treatment will stay on track.

Custom-made

Invisalign works by using pressure points inside the aligners to push the teeth into position. These need to be mapped and created individually for each patient, as the inside profile of the teeth is different for everyone.

Digitally enhanced

Invisalign uses digital technology to create the custom-made treatment plans. One option is to use a scanner to take digital impressions of your teeth. These measurements are fed into a software programme that creates a treatment plan, mapping out how the aligners will shift your teeth over time. It also shows you how your smile will look at the end, which will give you the motivation to keep up with your treatment until you’ve achieved the smile you’ve always wanted.

Better the devil you know? Not with Invisalign in Kings Hill

Very often, when people consider getting their teeth straightened, they decide not to go ahead with treatment because they can’t face having to wear braces cemented to their teeth for months on end.

Invisalign in Kings HillBraces are something kids wear and so many adults decide they need to present a more grown-up, professional image. But it’s not just about appearances. Many adults also decide that they don’t have the time for complicated cleaning routines and being fussy about what they eat. And so, they stick with the devil they know; they don’t like their wonky teeth but at least they are used to them.

With Invisalign in Kings Hill, all the reasons for not getting straight teeth no longer apply. Invisalign is a tried and trusted way of straightening teeth that doesn’t involve complicated cleaning routines, having to give up favourite foods or looking like a nerdy adolescent. The trouble is that because Invisalign in Kings Hill is pretty much invisible over the teeth, many people never notice it on others and so remain sadly unaware of its existence.

How Invisalign works

Invisalign is a simple idea developed by a student about 20 years ago. His idea was ‘what if a mouth guard style device could straighten teeth?’ Invisalign is the result and it has been on the market since the late 1990s.

We take detailed measurements of your teeth and these are sent to the Invisalign factory in the US, where a series of aligners are 3D printed. Each aligner has precision placed pressure points inside it. When the aligners are worn, one after the other, they gradually press the teeth into alignment.

It takes 7-10 days for each aligner to do its work and the average treatment time is about a year.

Advantages

Because Invisalign is more like a mouth guard, it is not fixed to the teeth, but snaps on over them. This means it can be removed for eating and drinking and therefore also for cleaning. There is no need to alter the diet and cleaning is as simple as ever.

Clear, clean and good for your health

Invisalign in Kings Hill may generally be considered a cosmetic dental treatment. That is, it focuses on the appearance rather than the health of the teeth. And while it’s true that Invisalign in Kings Hill does straighten only mildly crooked, crowded and gapped teeth, it has its health benefits too.

Invisalign in Kings HillStraighter teeth are easier to clean. It’s far simpler to get brush and floss into well-aligned teeth than it is to work your way into the irregular gaps of misaligned ones. There’s also fewer nooks and crannies for plaque and bacteria to build up in, meaning it’s less likely that you will develop tooth decay or gum disease.

So, as well as giving the look of your smile a boost, you’re also doing your bit for your oral health. And while the treatment time of 12-18 months may feel like a big chunk out of your life, the benefits will last for years.

The added beauty of Invisalign in Kings Hill is that these aligners fit comfortably into your lifestyle. You don’t have to sacrifice your appearance for 2 years to get straighter teeth as you do with fixed, metal braces. Invisalign aligners are clear and removable. This means that, once in place, they can’t be seen. Your mum or a dentist may be able to spot them, but the rest of the world will be none the wiser. You can go on a date, attend a wedding, speak in public and go about your daily life with ease.

And, as they are removable, if you do feel self-conscious at a big occasion, you can take them out for an hour or 2, as long as you remember to put them back in and wear them for 20-22 hours a day.

Being removable also means that you take them out for eating, drinking anything but plain water and cleaning. And while this takes a bit of discipline, it does mean there’s no chance of food getting caught in the brace.

Tips on getting the most out of your Invisalign aligners

If you’ve decided to improve your smile with Invisalign in Kings Hill, congratulations – you’ve chosen an advanced system with proven success. But there are some tips and hints to get the best out of the treatment.

At One Smile Oral Care, we want our patients to get the best treatment they can, and with Invisalign this means being committed to following a strict regime of wearing and cleaning the aligners.

Invisalign in Kings HillAlways wear the aligners

The main thing to remember for anyone using Invisalign in Kings Hill is that the aligners need to be worn for 20-22 hours every day in order for them to work. It’s best if the aligners are only removed for eating, brushing and flossing.

Keep on schedule

Your dentist will give you a schedule and a few sets of trays when you start treatment with Invisalign in Kings Hill, and it will be your responsibility to make sure you change them on time, and in the right order. It is important to make sure you change aligners on the right day, as the treatment programme is carefully arranged.

Brushing and flossing

When you are using Invisalign, it’s more important than ever to keep up a good dental hygiene habit, as the aligners can hold any tiny particles of leftover food against your teeth. Ideally you should clean your teeth after eating, before putting the aligners back in, but if you are unable to brush and floss at that time, at least rinse your mouth thoroughly with water.

Keep your aligners clean

Keeping your aligners clean is just as important as keeping your teeth clean. It is a good idea to give the aligners a quick clean before you replace them after eating, and also in the morning as bacteria can build up overnight. The best way to clean the aligners is using a soft toothbrush and water. Toothpaste should not be used as it is abrasive and can damage the aligners.

Give yourself time to adjust

It will take a bit of time to get used to wearing the aligners, as they will feel strange at the start. They can affect your speech at first, but you will soon learn to talk normally with them.

Taking good care of your teeth while wearing Invisalign in Kings Hill

Choosing Invisalign to straighten your teeth and bite is a wise decision. Not only are the aligners easy to use and comfortable to wear, but also you can take good care of your teeth and gums. Unlike regular braces which are difficult to clean properly and maintain, Invisalign aligners can be removed in case you want to brush or floss your teeth. This way you can always stay on top of your oral hygiene game.

At One Smile Oral Care, we offer Invisalign in Kings Hill and we can show you how easy is to take good care of your teeth when you are wearing your aligners. Following a few simple steps will ensure that your aligners will remain clean and effective.

Invisalign in Kings HillDon’t eat with your aligners

One of the biggest differences between Invisalign and traditional braces is that Invisalign aligners can be taken out. However, you can’t keep your aligners out of your mouth for more than 4 hours per day as this can hinder the successful completion of your treatment. Only remove your aligners when you want to eat or drink – but it’s ok to have them on when you drink water. With Invisalign in Kings Hill you don’t have to change your oral hygiene routine – simply remove the aligners every time you want to eat and re-insert them into your mouth after cleaning your teeth.

Don’t forget to brush your teeth

At One Smile Oral Care, we recommend brushing your teeth at least twice a day while undergoing treatment for Invisalign in Kings Hill. However, ideally, you should rinse your mouth every time you eat or drink something so that your aligners won’t stain over time. Rinsing with water should do the trick.

Don’t leave your aligners dirty

Last but not least, it is equally important to clean your aligners so that bacteria do not survive on them. You can clean them either with lukewarm water or with a special cleaning solution (Invisalign has a branded one but you can also use a gentle denture cleaner).

Yes, you can get straight teeth without looking odd

Ask anyone if they’d like to get their wonky teeth straightened and they’re almost bound to say yes. Ask them if they’re prepared to go through a few months of looking odd because they’ve got braces on their teeth and it’s surprising how many say no. People are very sensitive to how their teeth look and wearing braces as an adult is not something many are willing to do. It’s understandable really. Braces are indelibly associated with being an adolescent; not a look a career-minded adult is after. However, there is a way round this conundrum and we have it here at One Smile Oral Care in Kings Hill: Invisalign.

Invisalign in Kings HillYou may never have seen people wearing Invisalign in Kings Hill. That’s because this way of straightening teeth is so discreet as to be as good as invisible. Hence the name: Invisible Alignment.

Why so hard to see?

Invisalign is different from traditional brackets and wires fixed onto the front of the teeth. These devices look more like ultra-thin mouth guards when you hold them in your hand. They hug the teeth very snugly, coming all the way up to the gum line and because the plastic is so thin, only 0.3mm, once they are in situ, they are very hard to spot. They also don’t interfere with speech or with eating.

Why so easy to eat?

That’s the other big plus with Invisalign in Kings Hill. These devices come out. In fact, you have to take them out to eat food and drink anything that is not plain water. If you didn’t, the plastic would become discoloured and therefore visible over your teeth. This means that you can eat whatever you want without having to worry about picking food out from behind brackets and wires, or indeed, breaking your device. Then you just brush your teeth and put the aligner back in. As long as you wear your aligners for at least 20 hours a day, you will stay on track with your treatment.

Invisalign in Kings HillIt’s not like say, an Audi or a Skoda. You see those in the supermarket car park and you can, in theory, go ask their owner all about them as they unload their shopping. With Invisalign, there is bound to be someone you interact with on a casual basis, who is using it, and you will never know. It could be the person at the supermarket check-out. It could be your best mate’s mate that you had a laugh with in the pub the other night. It could be that Skoda driver you just talked to about their car. You will never know because unless they choose to inform you that they are using Invisalign in Kings Hill from us at One Smile Oral Care, you won’t spot it in their mouths.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign in Kings Hill is a tooth-straightening system made of amazingly thin, clear plastic mouth guard-style aligners that fit over your teeth like a second skin. Once in place, you really can’t see them, they hug the teeth and the gum line so snugly.

Inside each aligner are precision-placed bumps and ridges that press on your teeth to move them into alignment. You wear your invisible aligners for at least 20 hours a day. At first, the pressure from these ridges makes them feel as if they don’t really fit, and they don’t. The pressure moves the teeth over the course of the next 7-10 days, gradually wearing off. Once your aligner seems to fit well, it’s time to move onto the next one in the series.
