Using clear, custom-made trays, Invisalign gently moves the teeth into the desired position, creating the smile you have always wanted. By moulding each tray to exactly fit your mouth, this transparent straightening system fits snugly over the teeth, barely detectable by others, even when having a face-to-face conversation. Many patients also really like the fact that the trays are removable, so although we recommend they are worn for the majority of the time, they can be taken out for eating, cleaning and important events.
If you’re interested to find out if a dental implant is a suitable treatment for you, one of our experienced clinicians will carry out a full assessment in order to make a recommendation about the most suitable course of action. This includes deciding whether a bone graft may be necessary prior to, or at the same time, as the implant treatment. Using our in-house CBCT scanner, we can accurately assess your jaw bone without you having to travel to London for these scans. Your dentist will also discuss the procedure with you and answer any questions you may have, as well as giving you plenty of time to decide if this is the right treatment for you.

This system is designed to apply gradual pressure to the teeth over time, moving them into the desired position. You will need to return to your dentist every 6 – 10 weeks so your progress can be checked and the wires adjusted as necessary. The total treatment time is usually around 18- 24 months, but this varies between patients and your dentist will discuss your individual timescale. As the brace is attached to your teeth it is essential that you maintain the very best levels of oral hygiene, to ensure there is no long-term marking or damage to the teeth. Therefore we recommend regular dental hygiene treatments, where you can also learn the best ways to care for your teeth and brace at home, as well as the foods you should look to avoid while undergoing treatment, which could get caught in or damage your brace.
The best dental advice ? Floss regularly! As wonderful as brushing regularly is, it is not holistic in its responsibility to clean your teeth. Brushing can clean the surface of the teeth, but it cannot do the same for the spaces in between teeth. This is where flossing comes in. It helps to get rid of food residue and other detrimental substances stuck between the teeth. If you really care about your dental hygiene (and you should), get into the habit of flossing at least once a day.
Modern developments in dentistry mean that so many areas are constantly improving and evolving. When it comes to orthodontics treatment, gone are the days when the only way to straighten your smile was a large metal appliance fixed to the teeth. Today, new materials and techniques can achieve excellent results but in a much more subtle way. See more info at ceramic braces Hemel.
