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.

More than 4 million people chose Invisalign

When you are about to invest a lot of money in something, you want to know it is going to be money well spent. You need to read reviews, talk to other people who have used that service or product, get a general feel for the thing. And that’s kind of hard when the thing you want to use is invisible. You can’t see how many other people are using it. That’s the trouble with Invisalign in Kings Hill, it’s big selling point is that it’s a way to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing what you are up to.

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.

Make the most out of your treatment with Invisalign in Kings Hill

Invisalign is a great alternative for those who don’t want to wear braces. Moreover, this treatment is less painful than braces and does not require as many adjustments. With Invisalign, you can live your life without worrying about what to eat or how to clean your teeth.

At One Smile Oral Care, Invisalign in Kings Hill is the preferred treatment of choice of many teenagers and adults. Invisalign is easier to install than regular braces, but it is still a teeth straightening treatment and in order to achieve the most out of it, you need to be aware of a few tips and tricks.

Invisalign in Kings HillNever forget to floss

You may be brushing twice-daily, every single day, but chances are that you are not flossing your teeth with the same daily frequency. With Invisalign, flossing your teeth every day is more important than ever. Unless you use an interdental brush or another device to remove plaque, food remains and bacteria from in-between your teeth, you should floss every single day since the aligners prevent saliva from cleaning your teeth properly.

Commit to wearing your aligners 22-24 hours per day

Invisalign is not difficult to wear and does not require much effort from your part. However, Invisalign in Kings Hill is a treatment that will only work as it should if you wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day. If you are not willing to stick to this simple rule, then Invisalign is probably not the right treatment for you.

Don’t move to the next aligner in the series on your own

Unless your dentist has instructed you so, you are not supposed to change your aligners earlier or later than you should. If your dentist tells you to wear you aligner for a few extra days, you should follow their advice, instead of experimenting on your own.

Your aligners will remain invisible

While you will definitely feel that you are wearing them, your aligners are made of clear plastic, therefore they are invisible to the naked eye. Instead of worrying that someone will notice that you are undergoing treatment, enjoy smiling with Invisalign in Kings Hill.

Correct uneven teeth discreetly with Invisalign

Although braces are the traditional treatment for uneven or crooked teeth, dental technology has advanced a lot since they were first invented and there are many more options now available. One option is to talk to our dentists about a clear aligner, such as Invisalign in Kings Hill.

Invisalign in Kings HillInvisalign – what exactly is it?

The Invisalign System is a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn for one or two weeks at a time, then exchanged for another set, and so on until optimum teeth correction is reached. At the start of treatment, your treatment plan will be plotted out using the latest 3D technology at our practice in Kings Hill. Invisalign is designed to ensure you know what to expect every step of the way. Each stage of your treatment will correct the teeth in a specific way, making results predictable and successful.

Why choose Invisalign?

As producers of the world’s first clear aligners, Invisalign know teeth. In a world where people are more concerned about appearance than ever before, it is important to have the option to improve your smile and this can be done easily and very discreetly with Invisalign in Kings Hill. The aligners themselves are nearly invisible and people are not likely to notice you are wearing them. Invisalign aligners are designed to be removed for eating, so there is no need to worry about restricting your diet.

Because they are removable, Invisalign are ideal for people who play contact sports, or professionals whose appearance is particularly important. However, the aligners do need to be worn for a recommended 22 hours a day. Most patients find that the aligners don’t affect their speech, so this should not be a concern.

Problems that can be corrected with Invisalign in Kings Hill

A number of orthodontic issues can be correcting using Invisalign in Kings Hill. Problems with bite, such as overbite, underbite and crossbite can all be adjusted. Gaps between the teeth and overcrowded teeth can also be corrected. Many people who wore braces when young now find that their teeth have shifted as they’ve got older. This is something that can usually be corrected with Invisalign in Kings Hill.

The convenience of Invisalign

What’s Invisalign?

Invisalign in Kings Hill is a type of modern brace system made of clear plastic. Invisalign braces are usually referred to as Invisalign aligners. They are called Invisalign because they align your teeth invisibly. Yes, when you have them in your mouth they can’t be seen by others. The aligners are designed to be comfortable, convenient and easy-to-use. Invisalign aligners are worn over your teeth. You’ll need a number of sets of aligners, each set moves your teeth, just a little bit, over a 1-2 week period. When their job is done, you move on to the next set.

Invisalign in Kings HillWhy would you want to use Invisalign in Kings Hill?

Have you got crooked teeth that would look nicer if they were straight? Invisalign could be for you. Invisalign aligners correct mild to moderate tooth alignment issues. They’re a good choice for anyone who would like to straighten their teeth discreetly. They’re also perfect for people who have a lifestyle or job that would make wearing traditional metal braces impossible. As the aligners are removable, you can choose to take them out in some social situations. However, you should wear the aligners for the recommended time each day, 22 hours. If you don’t, you’ll experience a longer treatment time.

How do Invisalign aligners work?

Invisalign aligners work by applying pressure to your teeth. What’s great about Invisalign is, they can target individual teeth in a logical order, instead of moving your teeth all at once like traditional braces with brackets and wires. When you put each set of aligners in for the first time you’ll be able to feel which teeth have pressure on them. Over the 1-2 weeks of wearing each aligner, the pressure will gradually wear off. Once you no longer feel pressure with the set you’re wearing, it’s time to switch to the next set in your aligner series.
