As well as not being aesthetically pleasing, crooked teeth can cause several problems. At Ward & Allison Dental Clinic, we use the Invisalign® Clear Braces system; the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and improve your smile without the need for fixed braces.
Overly crowded teeth can get worse over time, and result in severely crooked teeth. This crowding can lead to plaque accumulation, tooth decay and an increased chance of gum disease.
Underbite can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars, which can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.
Deep bite can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth, and can cause painful jaw and joint problems.
Spacing issues and gaps between teeth can lead to gum problems (due to lack of protection by the teeth), periodontal pockets and increased risk of periodontal disease.
Open bite can cause poor or painful chewing, and even speech impairment. It can also lead to greater issues like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD).
Crossbite causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth. This can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease and bone loss.
Invisalign® treatment is clinically proven to be effective. In the hands of an experienced Invisalign® Provider such as Ward & Allison it can be used to treat mild to complex teeth straightening issues.
Invisalign® uses a series of removable, clear aligners that are custom-moulded to fit you. Comfortable, convenient and highly effective, the virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you will be proud of.
Proven effective in clinical research and used in orthodontic and dental practices throughout the world, Invisalign® can give you beautifully straight teeth in a safe and proven way.
Based on your consultation and diagnosis, a series of aligners are custom made in a laboratory using advanced 3D computer imaging technology.
Each Invisalign® aligner is worn for 2 weeks, removing them only to eat drink, brush and floss.
As each Invisalign® aligner is replaced, gradual movement of the teeth occur resulting in a straighter smile. You will need to visit us every 4-6 weeks so that we can ensure all necessary movements are occurring.
On average Invisalign® treatment lasts 6 to 15 months.
Ilkeston in Derbyshire is close to both Derby and Nottingham and very near to the M1 motorway. If you have any further questions about Invisalign or any of our other treatments, please get in touch.
