Invisalign

What is Invisalign®?

At Baker Street Dental, we aim to be on the cutting edge of orthodontic treatment and provide you with the latest treatment solutions. Invisalign® is a modern new alternative to traditional brace treatments, providing you with the opportunity of aligning your teeth and re-creating your smile with an inconspicuous clear aligner.

Similar in looks to retainers, this clear aligners are thinner and certainly much more comfortable to wear. With the help of teeth-coloured attachments, Invisalign® gradually moves the teeth to the desired position and creates your dream smile.

* Dental Monitoring Suitability will be determined during the initial consultation.

How much does Invisalign® cost?

The prices of Invisalign® with us range between £2000 and £4000. The cost of the treatment is decided based on the complexity of your case.

What determines the difference in costs?
During your free initial consultation, your orthodontist will be able to determine the additional work that your treatment will require and advise you of the specifics. Some more complex cases may demand the use of elastics or even advanced biomechanics (mini-implants) to achieve the desired results. The extra items will be added to your quote and explained in detail. At the end of your consultation, you will receive a detailed quote which you can take home and think over.

Can you have an Invisalign® treatment if you travel a lot?

The answer is YES, you can! With Dental Monitoring now available at Baker Street Dental, your specialist orthodontist can offer you remote appointments for a large part of your treatment. What does this mean? It means fewer visits to the clinic and more rapid treatment!

* Dental Monitoring is a subject to suitability. Please book your free consultation to find out if you can take advantage of it. If you want to find out more about how Dental Monitoring works, check out the link below.

How does Invisalign work?

The treatment with Invisalign is unlike any other brace type. It is generally split into a few essential stages.

/

1. Treatment planning

The most important part of your treatment will be the planning stage. After we take a 3D scan of your teeth Dr Kia Papagalani, our specialist orthodontist with more than 25 years of experience, will work hand-in-hand with the technicians from Invisalign to create your treatment plan using their advanced software system. The treatment plan will be represented by a time-lapse like video, which will show the movement of your teeth throughout the projected duration of the treatment. Once you review and approve the plan, we’ll be ready to start.

/

2. Treatment

During your first fitting, you will receive your initial 3 aligner sets, 3D printed in California specifically for you. The first 3 sets aim to “inform” your teeth that treatment is starting. You’ll be changing your sets every 2 weeks.

After the initial treatment stage, we will see you one more time to apply your attachments. The attachments are tooth-coloured small buttons, which help the aligners to move your teeth in the desired direction. This is when the real work begins, and you soon start seeing the actual effect of your treatment.

/

3. Refinement

This stage is not guaranteed to everyone – you may be from the lucky ones whose teeth are happy to move and don’t require any additional work. If, however, you happen to have a stubborn incisor, for example, there’s nothing to worry. This is what the refinement stage is for. Once you’ve gone through all of your aligners, we’ll review the final results. If you’re not 100% happy and your teeth allow for further improvement, the refinement stage will be the time to focus on those final touches. After all, we want your smile to be absolutely perfect.

Invisalign® Express (also known as i7)

If you’ve recently had braces, or require minimal movement (a 1mm gap, or slight movement of one tooth), this will be the perfect treatment for you. Invisalign® Express is to be used for strictly cosmetic purposes.

Invisalign® Lite

This is the treatment that will be suitable for you if you have minor overcrowding or a few gaps that you would like to correct. When overcrowding is treated with Invisalign, the IPR (inter-proximal reduction) is used to free space for your teeth to align.

* Frenectomy is a procedure of laser treatment of gum located between two teeth that splits them. It is a painless, quick procedure that will help you get your dream smile.

Treatment duration: approximately 12 months /including treatment planning/
Refinement: up to 4 months
Cost: £2500

Everything you need to know about your Invisalign treatment

Clear aligners are the newest addition to the world of orthodontics. Nonetheless, there have already been thousands of cases (if not hundreds of thousands) around the world that prove the efficiency of this treatment. When lead by a specialist orthodontist, Invisalign is just as efficient as any other brace treatment.

There’s every chance that an Invisalign treatment will be the perfect solution for your gorgeous wedding-day-ready smile. Naturally, we will need to see you for a consultation before we promise you a treatment finale. If, however, your Hollywood smile requires more time, simply let us know about your upcoming events during your consultation, and we’ll make sure we design your treatment around your special day.

During your treatment, we will generally want to see your every 6 or 8 weeks. In case you need to travel for a period longer than this, simply inform our friendly staff in advance, and we’ll ensure you have plenty of aligners to carry on while travelling.

When it comes to teeth aligning, there’s no such thing as one size fits all. Each person’s teeth and dental health history is unique, and so would be the orthodontic approach. We’d recommend consulting with a specialist orthodontist and discussing the specifics of your case and the exact final result you want to achieve.

With short treatments, Invisalign can be as quick as any other brace type. When it comes to more complex cases, on the other hand, Invisalign may require a slightly longer treatment time. On the positive side, Invisalign requires less “chair time”, so once your treatment is planned, you will not need to visit the orthodontist’s office as often as some other brace types may require.

Yes, if you’re comfortable with doubling your treatment time… As with diamonds, that are created via continuous pressure, your diamond smile needs its solid 20 to 22 hours a day to appear.

Yes, as long as you remove your aligners before you do. Unlike other braces, Invisalign will not require you to remove your favourite crispy snacks from your diet. Just don’t forget to brush before you pop your aligners back in.

There’s nothing in particular that you can do to speed up your treatment, but you can surely make sure it is not delayed. Bad oral hygiene and gum issues are the most common causes of treatment delays. If you brush your teeth at least 2 times a day (and preferably every time after a snack), you’ll be finishing your aligning with a beautiful, sparkling healthy smile.

We strongly urge you to avoid self-diagnosing. Even if you look at your teeth and think “They’re not that bad”, you may be failing to see the misalignment of your bite which is visible from the side. Instead of trying to guess, why don’t you come and see us for a free consultation with our specialist orthodontist, and find out exactly what your perfect smile needs to show up 🙂

The Invisalign aligners are made of durable thermoplastic material for hospitals, developed exclusively for the Invisalign treatment plan. The aligners are made to measure and fit perfectly to your teeth. Some orthodontists have referred to them as “contact lenses for teeth.”
