At Chelsea and Fulham Dentist we understand that straightening your teeth is a journey, not just a treatment. We want you to be comfortable at every stage of your treatment, which is why we offer Invisalign in Chelsea, so we can take away some of the stress that people go through when they straighten their teeth with a traditional appliance. This treatment is a convenient, subtle way of straightening your teeth that has many benefits that come along with it when compared to the features of other appliances. Mainly focusing on the front eight teeth, this treatment is more suited to minor misalignment issues and will not be suitable for people who are suffering from severe misalignment. This treatment is capable of straightening your teeth in as little as six months, but this can vary from patient to patient and be closer to or even more than twelve months in some cases. Making an appointment to discuss this treatment can be done online through our website, or you can give us a call or book an appointment in person in our practice. Our friendly team is always on hand to help our patients in whatever way they can, so if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask them.

Almost invisible appliances to subtly straighten your smile

Being able to discreetly straighten your teeth means that nobody needs to know that you are having treatment carried out unless you wish them to. Adults often avoid straightening their teeth because they feel as if they are ‘too old’ to have metallic brackets attached to their teeth. Invisalign in Chelsea offers a clear alternative option, aligners that are made of a thin plastic that fit comfortably over your own teeth. They are difficult to spot unless you know that they are there, and they should not impact your speech. This means that wearing your appliance to work does not need to leave you feeling self-conscious or as if everyone is looking at your braces. Each set of aligners that you wear will move your teeth slightly so that they are in a new position, until eventually they reach their final straightened positions.

Don’t live a restricted lifestyle because of your treatment

When you make the decision to get Invisalign in Chelsea you will quickly realise that it is unlike traditional treatments in the way that it does not restrict you when it comes to everyday life. Eating food can be a chore when trying to navigate a fixed appliance, and having to avoid chewy foods, sweet foods and fizzy drinks amongst other things can be an incredibly hard thing to do when it is for a year or two. Wearing clear aligners does not prevent the same problems as a traditional appliance, as it is completely removable, meaning that you can eat whatever food you wish to. It is suggested that you brush your teeth after you have eaten food before putting your aligners back in your mouth, to ensure that they do not get damaged and that there is no build-up of plaque underneath your appliance.
