Invisalign in West Byfleet
Invisalign is a highly popular and well-established form of teeth straightening at our dentist in West Byfleet. Introduced in 1998 it quickly became a firm favourite amongst patients and dentists and since then has helped straighten over 2.5 million smiles across the world. Its popularity is due to the discretion and convenience of the treatment procedure. It corrects the misalignment issues of your teeth using clear plastic aligners which, as the name suggests, are almost invisible in the mouth. These aligners are individually tailored and manufactured according to specialised three-dimensional scans of your teeth, so that they are comfortable and produce accurate results. The aligners are designed to be worn in your mouth for two weeks at a time with each aligner being designed to move your teeth by up to 0.25 mm. Each aligner needs to be worn for at least 22 hours of the day removing them at meal times and for drinks other than water, during which time you can soak them in a specialised solution to clean them easily and conveniently. It is an ideal alternative for correcting issues such as crookedness, wonky teeth and misalignment in general. The duration of the treatment varies from patient to patient and depends on the extent of misalignment to begin with.
