Curious if Invisalign braces are for you? Your 5 FAQS answered by our team!

When it comes to having straighter teeth, many people want a treatment that will allow them the realignment they want without being apparent.


Traditionally, this was not possible; adult patients who wanted to straighten their smiles were only able to do so with the use of a metal brace. And as you can imagine, this was far from discreet, quite costly and took up a large amount of their time attending orthodontic appointments.

In recent years, adult aligners have evolved to become more discreet, easier to fit into day to day life, while also requiring fewer trips to the dentist. Thanks to advances in the technologies surrounding these braces, they are now also able to correct a wider range of alignment and bite issues too. Perfect!

So, if you have had enough of that slightly crooked smile eating into your confidence, visit our team at Dental Rooms. We will be able to offer you an array of orthodontic options, including Invisalign in Wimbledon. With our expert team of cosmetic orthodontists, you can achieve that straighter smile you want in as little as 6 months! Fantastic.

Have some questions? Of course, you do. Here, our cosmetic orthodontists answer the top 5 FAQs about Invisalign in Wimbledon.

How does it work?

Our team at Dental Rooms will take a 3D scan of your mouth and, using the images collected, will create a set of clear aligners to move your teeth from their current position into the desired one.

On average, you will receive 14 different aligners and you will need to change them about every 2 weeks. Rather than using metal, the plastic aligners gently apply pressure to your teeth, moving them gradually and at a comfortable pace. Once completed, you will need to wear a retainer to prevent relapsing. Simple!

I saw a similar brace online- why is this one better?

Invisalign in Wimbledon is superior as our team are professionals; you will be guided and supported at each step, leaving less to chance or error.

When it comes to correcting your smile, we want the process to be as smooth as you do, so it is best to leave it up to trained professionals, rather than a stranger on a website!

Will it make me talk funny?

Initially, you may have a slight speech impediment as you tongue adjusts to the aligner.

This will gradually fade over the initial 2 weeks of wearing the brace.

Is it as uncomfortable as a regular metal brace?

All orthodontic treatment  has the potential to be uncomfortable and this brace is no different.

During the first few days following an aligner change, you may notice a feeling of pressure. As your teeth are being forced into their new positions, however this should be more manageable than the pressure associated with a regular brace.
