Invisible Braces

Invisalign

To help you feel comfortable whilst gaining that confident smile, Ashton and Lonsdale dental practices use the Invisalign invisible braces. Using a series of nearly invisible aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.

Why should I choose Invisalign invisible braces?
  • Invisalign clear braces are nearly invisible – straighten your teeth without anyone noticing.
  • Invisalign clear braces are comfortable – there are no wires or metal to cause mouth abrasions.
  • Invisalign clear braces are removable – for eating, drinking, dental care or other activities.
  • Invisalign clear braces enable better oral hygiene during treatment – brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth.
  • You can whiten your teeth at the same time as straightening

Treatment length will vary depending on the complexity of the case, but the average Invisalign treatment is twelve to eighteen months.

This gentleman in his early 20’s undertook Invisalign treatment with teeth whitening.  His treatment took 14 months to complete and was undertaken by Juraj Kocis.

Invisible braces patient case 2

This lady in her 30’s attended the practice after having significant orthodontic treatment over many years which had left her with spaces where the teeth had been removed as a child. She was seeking implants to fill the spaces. However on radiographic examination it was discovered that the roots of the teeth were lying across the space where an implant would be placed and without further orthodontic treatment any implant treatment would be impossible.

After much discussion it was decided to use Invisalign braces to upright the teeth and close the spaces preventing the need for implants. We elected to use   Invisalign braces as this gave us much greater control over the rate the teeth would move to minimise any further damage.

As you can see after a years worth of treatment we vastly improved her smile. You may note there is some gum recession on upper canine teeth which has not worsened during this treatment.

This is an example of a very challenging case approached as a KIS (keep it simple). It produced an excellent result with long term stability and at a much less cost than other alternatives. Treatment was carried out by Barry Rimmer.

This young man in his early 20’s attended the practice as he was “embarrassed to smile” and wanted his teeth “sorting out”. He was treated using Invisalign and he also took advantage of using the aligners to whiten his teeth while straightening them.
