Invisalign in London

A Discrete Choice for Teeth Straightening

McKennell Dental Practice is the leading provider of Invisalign in London. Our dentists have straightened misaligned teeth of more than thousands of patients with a series of clear braces.

Invisalign is an effective orthodontic solution for misaligned or crooked teeth, giving you straighter teeth and beautiful smile. Invisalign uses virtually invisible braces which have completely changed teeth misalignment.

It is an excellent option for people who have allergic reactions to the metal used in traditional braces or want to realign their teeth without others being aware about it. Invisalign aligners are comfortable and no one will know you are undergoing orthodontic treatment unless you tell people. These clear aligners are also removable, so you can take them out to drink, eat, floss and brush teeth.

McKennell Dental Practice is your one-stop destination for getting straighter teeth and dream smile.

Types of Invisalign

  • Invisalign Full or Comprehensive

This Invisalign solution is suitable for patients with complicated orthodontic issues who want to shift all their teeth. Invisalign Full is the most common Invisalign procedure. It treats moderate and complex cases.

You will wear each set of aligners for at least 1 – 2 weeks before changing to the next set to allow your teeth gradually move into alignment and get the desired result. Depending on the complexity of your case, you will need between 15 – 30 aligners for Invisalign Full and over 30 aligners for Invisalign Complex.

The duration of your treatment can take 12 – 18 months, but more complicated cases will take about 24 – 36 months.

  • Invisalign Lite

Invisalign Lite is suitable for patients with mild to moderate misalignment. This treatment is ideal for simple cases that require minor teeth movement. The treatment is similar to Invisalign Comprehensive or Full, but you need fewer braces to shift your teeth into the desired position. The average treatment time is 4 – 8 months.

  • Invisalign Express or Invisalign i7

These are the newest Invisalign technology for patients who want to correct minor tooth correction, relapsed misalignment from previous orthodontic treatment or have slight overcrowding. They offer quick results for complicated problems involving only a few teeth and use about seven aligners. The treatment duration is about four months.

Dental conditions Invisalign can treat

  • Crowded teeth

Crowded teeth usually occur when there is insufficient space in the jaw for the teeth to fit properly. It can occur in the lower or upper jaw or both. Crowding makes some teeth end up in front and others behind them. This results in difficulty brushing and cleaning teeth, leading to tooth decay, plaque and gum disease.

  • Gapped teeth

In gapped teeth, there are extra spaces between the teeth. This may result from abnormal jawbone growth or when some teeth are missing.

  • Crossbite

Crossbite occurs when the upper and lower jaw teeth do not align properly. One or several teeth in the upper jaw may bite down on the lower teeth, causing teeth grinding, leading to gum disease and tooth loss.

  • Underbite

An underbite happens when teeth in the lower jaw sit in front of the teeth in the upper jaw. Underbites may occur from an undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both.

  • Overbite

In an overbite, the upper jaw completely or partially covers the lower jaw and may cause gum or tooth problems.

  • Open bite

Some teeth in the lower and upper jaw do not meet in an open bite. This orthodontic problem may be genetic.

Benefits of Invisalign clear aligners

Invisalign has become more common than braces for people to straighten their teeth in the past few years. Its benefits include:

  • Comfortable to wear

Invisible braces are comfortable because they don't have brackets and wires that can cause mouth irritation. You will also spend less time and your orthodontist's office for adjustments.

  • Restore an attractive smile

Invisalign clear aligners work immediately, so you can have an improved smile. Most people can get their desired result within a few months.

  • Almost invisible

The aligners are almost invisible, so you can straighten your teeth confidently, and people won't know you are undergoing treatment unless you tell them. You can remove them anytime to eat, drink, floss and brush your teeth.

  • Removable aligners

You can remove the virtually invisible aligners anytime. You can floss and brush normally, which makes maintaining good oral hygiene easy, and you prevent further damage to your mouth.

  • Customised aligners

You will have your digital teeth impressions taken to create custom-made aligners for an effective, faster and safer treatment.

How does Invisalign braces work?

Invisalign is an excellent teeth-straightening option. It uses a series of almost invisible and customised aligners that gently move the teeth to their desired position, so you don't need fixed brackets and visible wires.

The aligners apply pressure on specific teeth at diffident times to move them to their perfect position. You need to wear each set of aligners for at least 1 – 2 weeks before replacing them with the next set in the series until you get your desired result. Invisalign treatment can restore your smile and help boost your self-confidence.

The Invisalign provider will use Invisalign Clinicheck software to see how your teeth will look at different stages of your treatment and evaluate your progress. The provider will also assess your teeth movement during the treatment through routine check-ups. You need to wear the aligners at least 20 – 22 hours daily to achieve the best possible result. You can only remove the aligners to eat, drink, brush and floss.

Invisalign Treatment Procedure

  • Initial consultation with your provider

Invisalign treatment starts with a precise 3D digital scan and a computer imaging technology called an iTero Element scanner. This scan allows your provider to produce a digital model of your teeth on the screen so you can see how your teeth will look after your Invisalign treatment. The provider will create a unique and personalised treatment plan for your crooked or misaligned teeth.

  • Wear your braces

At your Invisalign aligner fitting, you will be with your provider for about 40 minutes before wearing the first set of aligners.

  • Routine dentist check-ups

You will wear aligners for at least 1 – 2 weeks before replacing them with the next set. You will have monthly reviews to assess your treatment's progress and ensure your teeth are moving properly. Treatment time varies depending on the complexity of the orthodontic issue.

Ensure you wear your Invisalign aligners for the recommended time and remove them only to eat, floss and brush your teeth.

  • Retainer – after treatment

After your Invisalign treatment, you will get a custom-made set of Vivera retainers to prevent your teeth from moving to their previous positions. You may also get fixed wire retainers at the back of your front teeth to ensure no further teeth movement.

Ensure you wear your retainers as the provider instructs after your Invisalign treatment. This prevents your teeth from moving back to their old position. However, Invisalign aftercare involves more than wearing retainers.

  • Floss or brush daily

After your Invisalign treatment, brush your teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and floss. If you are predisposed to cavities, use a fluoride mouthwash. Practice good dental hygiene for a healthy and clean mouth and teeth.

  • Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and teeth cleaning

Visiting a dental hygienist during your Invisalign aftercare is important. This will help remove accumulated plaque in your mouth before it causes gum disease.

  • Eat a well-balanced diet

Eating a well-balanced diet is vital for healthy teeth following your Invisalign treatment.

  • Wear a mouth guard when playing sports

Contact sports and outdoor activities increase the risk of oral trauma, but wearing a custom-made mouth guard will help protect your gums and teeth.
