What Is Invisalign in Hammersmith?

Firstly, let’s consider what Invisalign in Hammersmith is, and what it can do. As the name implies, they’re an orthodontic brace option that’s clear, making them less obtrusive and obvious than other options out there. It’s usually the no. 1 option for clear braces in Hammersmith.

They’re usually the best option if you’re looking to correct mildly crooked teeth, or if you want to treat teeth that had more complex work done in the past, but have now relapsed. Clear braces in Hammersmith can also be used for more complex issues too. You may need to use additional pieces, such as tooth-coloured attachments that help the aligner grip your teeth better.

How Invisalign Hammersmith works

Invisalign Hammersmith works in a very similar way to traditional braces. When you talk to your dentist, they’ll help you decide if Invisalign is going to be the right option for you. If it is, then they’ll take a mould of your teeth, to allow them to create a custom-fitted aligner. This is the clear brace that you’ll be wearing during your treatment.

Much like a regular braces setup, those clear braces in Hammersmith will gently apply force to your teeth, moving them into the correct position. When you talk to us about the treatment, we’ll be able to show you just how those braces will affect your smile, using specialist 3D software.

Once you have your aligners, you’ll need to wear them for up to 18 months, depending on your needs. However, you’ll see that clear braces in Hammersmith will be able to work much quicker than traditional braces. Every 6 to 8 weeks, you’ll need to come back to us to have them adjusted, and new retainers made for you. That way, you’ll get just the results you wanted.

How to take care of your Invisalign braces

To get the best results from your Invisalign in Hammersmith, you’ll need to take good care of them. The good news is they’re very easy to look after. They need to be worn most of the time, apart from when you’re eating, so make sure you take them out before meals. It’s a good idea to rinse them before you put them back in, to keep them clean.

For thorough cleaning, just make sure you brush them along with your teeth when you brush in the morning and at night. You also have the option of using denture tabs to keep them clean.

Benefits of Invisalign Hammersmith

There are lots of benefits to using clear braces in Hammersmith. Here are a few you should be aware of:

Less obvious: Traditional braces are very obvious in your mouth, but you’ll see that Invisalign isn’t as they’re clear retainers. It’s great for those who feel self-conscious about having to use braces. For example, they work great for teens who worry about having to wear braces.

Quicker treatment times: On average, Invisalign Hammersmith will work much faster than traditional braces, which can take at least two years to fully work. You won’t have to spend as much time in treatment, so you can have the smile you want sooner. In fact, you could finish treatment within 6 months, depending on your needs. Ask your dentist, as they’ll be able to help you see how quickly it could work.

Convenience: One of the great things about Invisalign is that it’s so convenient. You can remove them from your mouth should you need to, such as when you’re eating. It is worth mentioning that you do need to wear them for at least 20 hours a day, though.

Invisalign in Hammersmith FAQs

Once you receive your Invisalign aligner trays from Blythe Road, you might be wondering what you can eat and drink during your orthodontic treatment.

Unlike other orthodontic options that have big lists of foods to avoid or stop eating completely, patients wearing Invisalign in Hammersmith have only a few rules to remember to ensure their smile is improved. These rules include:

  • Only removing your aligners to eat, drink, and clean your teeth – you should never eat while wearing your Invisalign trays.
  • Rinsing your aligner and brushing your teeth before you put Invisalign braces back in – this keeps your teeth clean and stops particles lingering that can cause plaque.
  • Enjoying a full, varied diet, but limiting exposure to staining foods and drinks if you are concerned with keeping your teeth white.

With a little thought and care, wearing Invisalign braces can straighten your smile with minimum fuss and maximum discretion.

To book an appointment for Invisalign in Hammersmith, or for any queries, contact the team by calling 020 7602 5089 or for any queries send us an email and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Throughout the duration of your treatment, you will receive a new set of retainers every 6 to 8 weeks, which gradually shift the positions of your teeth.

As the weeks progress, you should be able to see that your teeth are straightening and forming a more aesthetically pleasing bite.

Your old Invisalign aligners can be handed back to your dentist who will either advise that you keep them or can dispose of them for you.

Once you complete your last aligner, your dentist will likely advise that you keep it, as you may need to continue to wear your aligner to keep your teeth in the right position – how long you must do this for is down to each individual and their orthodontic journey.

If would like to start Invisalign or have a problem, such as a damaged aligner, our friendly reception team can get you booked in for an appointment at your soonest convenience. Just give us a call on 020 7602 5089 or fill in our booking form and we’ll be in touch.

Patients generally prefer Invisalign treatments, for two reasons: increased comfort and discreet options.

Traditional braces, with archwires and brackets, can be very uncomfortable in the mouth, causing sores and tenderness. Invisalign in Hammersmith is much gentler on the mouth, causing minimal discomfort at worst.

Likewise, unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are much more discreet. They can be easily hidden from people, especially if they don’t get very close to your mouth.

Orthodontic treatment is hard to generalise because it depends on multiple factors, including the severity of the crookedness of the teeth and how well patients stick to their treatment.

Generally speaking, however, Invisalign has been shown to take on average 6-18 months, versus metal braces, which can take around 20-24 months.

To get an accurate idea of a timescale for yourself, you will need to attend an orthodontic consultation with one of our dentists, who will also be able to tell you how long it will take with different treatment options.
