The Inman Aligner is possibly the closest you can get to teeth ‘magic’ in Sunbury. Its unique mechanism rocks your awkward looking front teeth to and fro and into place………in as little as six weeks! That, computes at around £25 a day. It works on a spring activated device that, whilst applying pressure on the outside of the teeth, a bar reverses the pressure on the inside. The opposing forces caused by the mechanism, keep the teeth in constant movement, aligning them accurately and quickly. For an older generation, this device is a godsend, because the thought of lengthy treatments can be a ‘turn-off’. The flexibility and speed of the device also allows you to tailor your treatment around up and coming events in the year. But if you fit the agenda and this aligner is suitable for you, it comes with an added bonus- it’s removable! The advantages are obvious- you can take it out when you eat, when you clean your teeth, or if you are socialising for a couple of hours. In fact, with a single wire across the front of the teeth, it’s barely noticeable in the mouth too. It’s almost too good to be true!

The Invisalign® system is available in Sunbury. Made up of a sequential series of clear plastic teeth aligners and complex computer technologies, Invisalign® has been successful in numerous cases where teeth straightening and movement are required. Along with being unnoticeable, Invisalign® offers teeth movement that is more comfortable than ordinary braces. The Invisalign® system usually takes about a year to complete versus regular orthodontics, which takes 2 to 3 years to complete. There are several cases where Invisalign® cannot be used, including very crowded teeth or teeth that are not fully erupted. They are not and should not be considered to substitute for orthodontic treatment. However, Invisalign® systems are popular and many patients request them.
Consult your Sunbury dentist to see if you are a good candidate for Invisalign®. If your dentist feels that you are a good candidate after examining your mouth, your dentist will proceed with a detailed oral examination, including dental radiographs and study models. The models are then sent to the laboratory where a complex computer program will evaluate the models and the tooth movements required. A series of 12-48 clear plastic sequential aligners will be made and returned to the dental office. Your dentist will then help you to place your first aligner tray. This tray will snap over your teeth, but may feel that it doesn’t fit correctly. The aligners are fabricated to accurately fit your teeth when your teeth reach their new desired position. Shortly, your teeth move to the guided tray position and then are given time to rest, before the next tray is placed. This allows the bone surrounding the teeth to remodel and tighten your teeth. The whole procedure should take about a year. Your Sunbury dentist will want to see you once a month to see how you are progressing.
Invisalign® is now available at your Weybridge dental clinic. The procedure includes a series of clear plastic “teeth aligners” fabricated using a complex computer technique. “Teeth aligners” are manufactured specifically for each individual to straighten and move their teeth. This is more accepted today, rather than the orthodontic wires and brackets of old. However, there are times when these are also required in certain cases. Your Weybridge dentist is trained in Invisalign®. Moreover, Invisalign® offers a more comfortable teeth movement process and is patient friendly, meaning the patient can remove the trays to clean their teeth, and there are no sharp edges. . Invisalign® takes about a year to achieve the required result, versus 2-3 years for normal orthodontic braces. There are several other limitations to Invisalign® in that, it cannot being used for partially erupted teeth or very crowded teeth. Invisalign® is becoming very well-liked.
Have a consultation with your Weybridge-based dentist prior to choosing if Invisalign® is your best choice. Your dentist will perform a complete work-up and examination. Your dentist will make a mould of your mouth and analyse them. If it is decided that Invisalign® is right for your teeth, the moulds will be scanned into a computer, and your series of successive 12-48 clear plastic trays are made and returned to your dentist. Your dentist then helps you to insert your first trays, and give you lessons on placing the trays in the right succession. The trays won’t feel right at first, but will then feel more comfortable as your teeth begin to move. Your teeth will then be given time to rest in their new position, and then the next tray will be inserted, and so on and so forth, until your teeth are moved unto their final resting position. You will see your dentist monthly to make sure everything is going as expected, and for slight modifications if necessary.
