Set Your Teeth Straight with Invisalign

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Improve your smile with the treatment everyone’s been talking about from the experienced dentists at Liverpool Dental Spa.

With people’s lifestyles getting busier and more hectic, it’s hard to find the time – and money – to search out a procedure both discreet and effective that will fit in with your daily routine. But the search is over, thanks to the innovative technology of Invisalign. Used by over 32 million people the world over, the Santa Clara manufacturer has helped design the perfect aligners for the perfect smile – and courtesy of its transparent appearance, no one has to know you’re having this treatment other than yourself and your dentist.

Straight teeth don’t just mean a great smile, but great health. Crooked teeth are harder to clean, and are also one of the primary factors of decay and other dental issues. With at least 50 percent of patients experiencing tooth decay whilst wearing fixed braces, the Invisalign technology makes for an easier and more hygienic form of treatment – allowing the user the option to remove their aligners as and when they wish to.

The average timeline of treatment lasts from about six months to just over a year.  After consulting with your orthodontist, impressions of your teeth will be recorded along with X-rays that are then sent off to Align Technology, USA.  Through the use of computer simulation, a series of aligners gradually correcting your teeth into a straight position will be produced. You will then be required to wear them over a prescribed amount of time.  You will need to work through the sets every two weeks and, once your teeth are straightened, will require the use of a retainer. But again this will be clear and removable, ensuring complete flexibility and freedom.

Straight Teeth with Discreet Aligners by Invisalign

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

We are always eager to cater for our client’s needs and desires and our discreet aligners are the perfect solution for patients who want a straight smile without the inconvenience of wearing fixed braces. Invisalign is one of our most popular orthodontic treatments and it’s no surprise, as this system offers a host of benefits for patients of all ages.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an alternative to fixed braces for many patients and it provides a solution for the many patients who wish to have treatment without wearing a highly visible orthodontic appliance. Rather than using fixed braces made from wires and brackets to straighten the teeth, Invisalign employs a series of invisible aligners made from clear plastic to move the teeth.

Each aligner is different and treatment is planned in advance using sophisticated computer software. Each aligner remains in place for two weeks and is then swapped for the next in the series until treatment has finished. The aligners are removable and should be taken out when you brush your teeth and eat.

How long does treatment take?

The treatment time varies according to your needs and how much movement is required. Typically, treatment with Invisalign takes around 12-18 months. Your dentist will be able to give you a better idea of how long treatment will take after your consultation.

Who can benefit from Invisalign?

Invisalign is suitable for patients of all ages and it can be used to treat a wide range of orthodontic issues including crowding, spaces between the teeth and problems with the bite. In some cases, there may be other options that are better suited and we will happily discuss these options during your consultation in the city of Liverpool.

What To Do When You Lose An Aligner

Monday, September 14th, 2015

We are proud to be a leading Invisalign provider in the North West and our experienced dentists have already helped hundreds of people to achieve beaming, beautiful smiles using this innovative technique. If you’re interested in Invisalign aligner treatment or you’re looking for an invisible means of straightening out orthodontic problems, here is a brief guide to tell you everything you need to know about Invisalign:

Invisalign: a brief overview

Invisalign is a clear brace system that uses a series of bespoke transparent plastic aligners to gently straighten the teeth. Each patient is presented with a set of aligners, fabricated according to a personalised treatment plan. The movement of the teeth is plotted using state of the art software and each aligner is worn for two weeks. Invisalign offers an alternative to fixed braces for those with minor or moderate orthodontic issues and it is a very popular choice for teenagers and adults who wish to enjoy treatment in secret. As well as providing invisible aesthetics, Invisalign aligners are also comfortable and convenient, as you can take them out to eat, brush your teeth and drink.

What happens if I lose an aligner?

We all lose things from time to time and it can be very frustrating when we can’t for the life of us find what we’re looking for. With Invisalign, it is possible to replace lost aligners, but it can take time as the aligners are custom-made at the Invisalign laboratory in America. If you can’t find an aligner, stay calm and retrace your steps. If you’ve been eating, drinking or cleaning your teeth, you may find that you’ve popped your aligner down in the kitchen or by the bathroom sink. We recommend calling us as soon as you can if you have misplaced an aligner so we can advise you on what to do and order a new aligner for you if necessary.

Invisible Treatment with Invisalign Aligners

Friday, August 28th, 2015

One of the most important and popular innovations in recent years has been the introduction of the invisible brace. Now, we are able to straighten teeth with minimal impact on the look of your smile during the treatment process. Thanks to incredible treatments like Invisalign, you can obtain the smile of your dreams without anyone even knowing you’ve been wearing a brace!

About Invisalign treatment

Invisalign is an invisible brace system that offers you the opportunity to undergo treatment in secret. Unlike most other braces, this system involves using a series of custom-designed clear aligners that work to straighten your teeth without making you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed about your brace. The aligners are made from high-grade clear plastic and slide over the teeth in a similar way to a mouth guard worn for sport. Once they are in position over the teeth they are barely visible, so nobody will be able to spot them when you smile.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign aligners work in sequence. Each patient receives their own set of custom-fit aligners, which are fabricated based on a personalised treatment plan. The aligners are all different and are shaped to allow room for movement. The appliances generate forces that gently reposition and align the teeth. Each aligner stays in place for two weeks.

Invisalign aligners are comfortable and give you flexibility as you can remove them quickly and easily when you want to eat, drink or brush your teeth. We recommend wearing the aligners for at least 21 hours each day to ensure the best possible results.

Is Invisalign for me?

Invisalign is generally suited to those with minor or moderate issues and is an excellent choice for those wishing to enjoy convenience, comfort and discretion. If you like the sound of Invisalign and have been dreaming of an invisible solution for orthodontic problems, call today and we’ll have you beaming in no time!

Invisalign is Perfect for Patients on the Go

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

We understand that many of our clients have hectic work and social schedules and this is why we’re always on the lookout for innovations, which offer convenience and flexibility. Invisalign is an incredible orthodontic system, which fits in with your daily routine and makes the process of achieving a stunning straight smile as easy and stress-free as possible.

Everything you need to know about Invisalign

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic system, which is a great option for patients who are always on the go. This system uses a set of specially designed removable appliances, called aligners, to move the teeth, creating a perfectly aligned smile with minimal impact on your day to day life.

Invisalign aligners are custom-designed for each individual patient and they are very easy to use; they glide into position over the teeth and they can be taken out very quickly and easily when you eat and brush your teeth. Invisalign aligners look like very delicate gum shields and they are made from clear plastic, making them virtually invisible to others.

The treatment process

The treatment process for Invisalign is slightly different to other treatments because it involves using multiple aligners, rather than a single brace. Each Invisalign patient receives a set of bespoke aligners, which are manufactured based on a detailed personalised treatment plan. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and the aligners work in sequence. Patients are advised to take the aligner out to eat and clean the teeth; although they are removable, which gives you greater flexibility, it is important to wear the aligners for around 22 hours per day to ensure the best results.

Is Invisalign for me?

If you’re looking for a simple, effective, discreet and comfortable solution for mild or moderate orthodontic issues, Invisalign could be the perfect match. Call us today to arrange a consultation and our expert dentists will talk you through the treatment and check that this is a suitable option for you.

Awesome Orthodontics with the Invisalign System

Monday, June 8th, 2015

If you’re looking for an awesome solution for crowded, crooked or protruding teeth, look no further than Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is one of the world’s most popular orthodontic systems and it offers an amazing array of benefits for patients who need minor to moderate levels of correction. This treatment is completely different to traditional fixed brace treatments because it uses a series of custom-designed aligners to straighten the teeth. These aligners are made from clear plastic, which makes them virtually invisible and they are also removable, so you can continue to eat and brush your teeth with ease.

Invisalign treatment is suited to people with minor or moderate issues such as crowding and crooked teeth and it is a very popular choice for teenagers and adults who wish to remain incognito during the treatment process. With this system, there are no concerns about flashing a bulky metal brace every time you smile or worries about what other people will think when you go on a date, meet new people or go for an interview.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign treatment is planned in advance and every patient has a unique treatment plan. Using this plan, bespoke aligners are created and are worn in sequence. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and then replaced with the next in the series until you’re removing your final aligner for the last time. The aligners can be taken out very easily and you should remove them to eat and brush your teeth. We advise wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours per day to ensure the best results.

During your treatment we will organise check-ups to see how you are getting on and make sure treatment is progressing as anticipated. We will also always be at the end of the phone if you have any questions about your braces and you can pop in and see us at any time if you have any problems or queries.

Why is Invisalign so Amazing?

Saturday, May 16th, 2015

Years ago, invisible orthodontic treatment would have seemed an impossible dream, but with Invisalign, this amazing feat is now a reality. If you dream of a straight smile, but you can’t handle the thought of wearing highly visible braces, Invisalign could be just up your street.

What’s so good about Invisalign?

If you’ve heard dentists, colleagues or friends waxing lyrical about Invisalign, you may be wondering what all the fuss is about. Here is a simple guide to why Invisalign is so beneficial for modern orthodontic patients:

  • Invisible aesthetics: Invisalign aligners are made from transparent high grade plastic, making them barely noticeable when you smile.
  • Ease and convenience: Invisalign aligners are removable, so you don’t have to make huge changes to the way you do things when you start treatment. You can eat and brush your teeth as normal and it’s very easy to keep your aligners clean.
  • Comfort: Invisalign aligners are light and they are custom-made to fit your teeth and encourage tooth movement. There are no metal bands and no painful adjustments.
  • Better oral hygiene: with Invisalign, you an remove your braces quickly and easily when you want to clean your teeth and brush as normal. This reduces the risk of oral health issues such as decay and gum disease and helps to prevent staining.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign uses forces to move the teeth like other braces. However, it uses a different kind of approach. Rather than using a brace made of brackets and wires to apply pressure to the teeth, Invisalign employs a set of removable aligners to guide the teeth into position over time. Each aligner is different and the number you receive will depend on the complexity of your individual prescription and how much movement is required to straighten and align the teeth. The aligners are worn for two week periods and they are ordered according to the personalised treatment plan.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

Every patient is different and it’s impossible to put a blanket time on Invisalign treatment. However, typically, cases take between 12 and 18 months to complete.

Secret Smiles with Invisalign Treatment

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

If we told you that we could create stunning smiles in secret, what would you say? It sounds too good to be true, but with Invisalign, we really can straighten crooked and crowded teeth without anybody being able to spot the tiniest glimpse of a brace. Invisalign clear aligners are the perfect option for anyone who wants the results of orthodontic treatment without any of the hassle of wearing a visible brace.

What is Invisalign and what’s so great about it?

Invisalign is a clear aligner treatment ideally suited to patients who have orthodontic issues but don’t want the stress of wearing a visible brace. With Invisalign, you don’t need to worry about how you look, the image you portray at work or what other people think, as your brace will be completely invisible.

Invisalign is a different proposition to conventional orthodontics because it uses multiple appliances rather than a single brace. Each patient receives a set of specially designed, completely bespoke aligners, which work in sequence to achieve the desired tooth movement. Each aligner works for 2 weeks.

Invisalign offers many benefits for patients of all ages. It is flexible, has very little impact on day to day life and it gives you the chance to go through the treatment process without any worries about how you look. With Invisalign, you brush your teeth, drink and eat as you would do normally and you simply swap your aligners over every 2 weeks until the series is complete and your smile is perfectly straight.

Could Invisalign be the right choice for me?

Invisalign has a wide range of uses and it is a viable option for most patients. However, it is always worth exploring all the options open to you and we can talk you through the different treatments and make suggestions once we have analysed your bite and assessed your orthodontic prescription.

Improve Your Smile with Invisalign

Friday, February 6th, 2015

Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment that promises to improve the look of your smile with minimal fuss and virtual invisibility. If you’ve been looking for a treatment that enables you to enjoy a beautiful smile without dealing with the stigma of wearing a visible brace, Invisalign is just what you’ve been searching for.

Invisalign clear braces offer an amazing alternative to traditional fixed braces for adults and teenagers, and they give you the option to go through treatment without anyone even being able to tell that you’re wearing a brace.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign treatment involves wearing multiple removable appliances that are made according to your personalised treatment plan. We use sophisticated computer software to plot the movement of the teeth and the individual plan is used to create your Invisalign aligners. Each patient receives a set of bespoke aligners and they are designed to be worn in order, with each aligner placed over the teeth for two weeks and then swapped until the treatment is complete.

Invisalign aligners produce gentle forces that move the teeth over the course of time. The aligners are shaped differently to allow room for tooth movement.

What do Invisalign aligners look like?

Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic and they look similar to a mouth guard, which is worn for sport. They are thin and light and they simply slide over the teeth. Once they are on your teeth they are virtually invisible, so you can smile without the anxiety of showing people your brace.

How long does treatment take?

Invisalign treatment is not usually a quick-fix, but it does provide an excellent solution for patients who require minor or moderate correction. On average treatment takes around 12 months. However, times vary according to how much movement is required.
