At The Mulberry Dental in Surrey we use the latest Invisalign invisible brace system for straightening and moving crooked teeth into a perfectly aligned beautiful smile that you will be proud of. Dr Riten Patel has trained extensively in the field of orthodontics and is particularly interested in reshaping smiles using invisible braces. Many patients from London visit The Mulberry for Invisalign treatment due to its close proximity, and unparalleled level of cosmetic
What is the procedure?
Dr Patel will examine your teeth and discuss how the system will work to reshape your smile and the likely time frame involved. Every case is unique and Dr Patel's expertise in orthodontics enables him to tailor the Invisalign treatment to the individual. Once your treatment has been planned a series of clear aligners are custom made to fit your mouth using the latest computer technology.
- You will wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
- As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to the final position.
- Dr Patel will assess the movement of your teeth regularly throughout the treatment and use his expertise in orthodontics to make any adjustments should they be needed.
- Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
Invisible braces can be used to treat:
- Crowding where the teeth are all too close together
- Gaps between the teeth
- Front teeth that stick out
- Irregular bite where the teeth don't meet in the middle
- If the centre lines of both the upper and lower teeth just do not align
Treatment with the Invisalign system is:
Convenient – it does not disrupt your lifestyle. You can eat the foods you want and clean your teeth easily simply by removing your aligners.
Discrete – since the aligners are virtually invisible most people won't even notice you're wearing them.
Comfortable – there are no metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth.
Who performs the initial consultation, and how much does it cost?
The initial consultation is carried out by an experienced Invisalign dentist and not with a patient coordinator. It is free and requires no patient obligation.
Will my input be listened to during the consultation?
The dentist will listen carefully to all of your expectations and concerns during your consultation to design a bespoke Invisalign solution. Your case is entirely unique. You will have full input into your 3D treatment plan (Clincheck) to determine the end result of your treatment.
What impressions are taken?
X-rays and moulds of your teeth will need to be taken to design your aligners. These are included in the price and are taken by an experienced Invisalign dentist at our practice.
Will I be given a full treatment plan during the consultation?
A full treatment plan will be provided to ensure you fully understand how your Invisalign treatment will work. We will also quote you a price for treatment, which will not change once treatment begins.
Is tooth extraction necessary?
Some other brace treatments can require tooth removal to make space for other teeth to move into. Our experienced Invisalign dentists will do all they can to make sure this is not the case with your treatment.
Can I spread the cost of Invisalign?
We want to make sure patients are not prohibited from having Invisalign treatment by cost. We consequently offer finance options.
When will I receive my aligners?
>As soon as your Invisalign aligners are constructed we will get you started with your treatment. We won’t have patients on a waiting list for months to begin their treatment.
How will my Invisalign treatment be monitored?
An experienced Invisalign dentist will monitor the development of your treatment every 4-6 weeks to ensure things go smoothly.
Are mid-case corrections included in the price?
If the dentist believes that treatment is not going entirely as planned, mid-case corrections may be necessary. Such corrections are included in the quoted price at the beginning of treatment.
Are refinements included in the price?
When it comes to the end of your treatment your teeth may not be entirely in the desired alignment. Refinements are included in the initial Invisalign price to fine tune your teeth and perfect your smile.
What extra treatment impressions are needed?
If for some reason we need to take extra impressions of your teeth during treatment, you can be safe in the knowledge that they are included in price.
Are retainers included in the price?
Following treatment it is necessary to wear a retainer to ensure your teeth remain in their new position. Retainers are included in the original price to make sure your smile remains at its best.
Is teeth whitening included?
You will receive free tooth whitening gels at the end of treatment to make sure your teeth are not only straight but also sparkling white.
Are there any hidden charges?
We can assure you that there are no nasty hidden charges that will come along halfway through treatment. We wouldn’t be where we are today if that was the case.
What about after-care?
Your treatment may have come to an end but that doesn’t mean we are going to end all ties with you. All Invisalign patients have access to after-care for one year following treatment, to make sure your smile is as it should be.
Am I just another name on your patient list?
Each treatment is unique and so is each patient. The Mulberry Dental is 100% focused on providing quality service and the best cosmetic results. Knowing we have made a difference means much more to us than case quantity.
