Invisalign® Richmond – Let Our Dentists Take the Stress Out Of Teeth Straightening

Even in 2024, the idea that teeth straightening is a long and arduous process remains a common belief. We are here to tell you that this couldn’t be further from the truth! If you’re looking to straighten your teeth for a more natural-looking smile, Invisalign® Richmond at The Smile Studios is your hassle-free route to natural-looking teeth and smile symmetry.

Invisalign® is a metal-free, removable treatment that puts the patient in the driving seat. Unlike fixed metal braces, Invisalign® aligners don’t place limitations on:

  • What you can eat.
  • How you brush and floss your teeth.
  • Hobbies that involve use of the mouth (playing contact sports and wearing a mouthguard and playing a woodwind instrument).

Learn how our dentists in Richmond can take the stress out of the Invisalign® teeth straightening process.

Does Invisalign® Guarantee The Results I’m Looking For?

One of the concerns our patients raise during their Invisalign® consultation is how their treatment will turn out after the average 12-month treatment period.

Here at The Smile Studios, we absolutely recognise this concern.

Invisalign® employs an innovative piece of technology known as ClinCheck, which generates visuals of your teeth as they gradually move into their new position. What’s more, before starting treatment, you will also see a mock-up of your teeth once you have worn all of your Invisalign® aligners.

Patients love seeing a forecast of their treatment, as it offers them reassurance and confidence from the beginning of the Invisalign® journey.

We will monitor your progress every 6 weeks at routine Invisalign® check-ups to ensure your teeth are attaining the correct positions along the way.

Our digital workflow systems using the sophisticated iTero machine allow us to make the Invisalign® planning stages an engaging experience for patients. The iTero machine is a smarter and more comfortable alternative to the traditional impression-taking process.

This aspect of the treatment planning reduces the overall time spent with your dentist. As we don’t have to post your impressions off to the Invisalign® lab (they are sent via email), we can get you started with the aligner-wearing part of your treatment more promptly.

Why Consider Invisalign®® Instead Of Metal Braces?

Invisible plastic aligners (metal-free and discreet)

Each of your custom-made Invisalign® aligners is made of clear plastic. This means once your aligners are in place over the top of your teeth, they will be barely noticeable to others around you.

Maintaining confidence in your smile during treatment is arguably one of the most notable benefits of Invisalign®. It’s a huge weight off your shoulders knowing that you won’t have to cover your mouth if you’re paranoid about wearing a brace since your aligners are fully transparent.

Easy to look after your teeth

One of the biggest negative criticisms patients cite about fixed metal braces is how difficult they can make it to keep your teeth clean, and to fend off bad breath.

Flossing and brushing require more time and patience when you have fixed braces, which is a dealbreaker for many people.

Your Invisalign® aligners are easily removable before brushing and flossing, which means no alterations need to be made to your oral hygiene routine.

Excellent comfort levels

If you’re wearing something for hours and hours each day, at the very least it should not feel invasive, preventing you from going about your day to the fullest.

Invisalign® aligners were designed to be minimally-invasive when they’re worn. While you may need an hour or so to adjust to each aligner when you swap them every 2 weeks, you will quickly forget you are even wearing them.

Meanwhile, metal braces can pose a comfort issue, particularly if they become damaged, causing metal components to contact with your oral soft tissues. It is true that the metal braces of today are designed with much smaller components, but there is still a risk of this occurring.

As Invisalign® aligners are made from smooth plastic, this is another potential risk you won’t have to stress about during your treatment.

No disturbances to your diet

There are enough stresses in life without having to think about restructuring your diet around orthodontic treatment.

With Invisalign®, the headache of having to avoid sticky and hard foods (those which are off limits with fixed braces) is not part of the treatment equation.

When you’re in the supermarket doing your weekly shop, or eating out at the restaurant, you won’t have to stop and think about accommodating your braces. Simply take your Invisalign® aligner out and enjoy your meals as normal!
