    Who Is The Invisalign Treatment For?

    Quite simply, Invisalign® is for just about anyone who wants it!

    Invisalign is a fantastic orthodontic treatment for adults and teenagers and Invisalign is capable of correcting a wide range of different dental problems such as overbites, underbites, crowded teeth, and many more! For a discreet, removable and quick way of aligning your teeth for a more straight and confident smile, Invisalign is absolutely one of the best solutions out there.

    At Parkfield Dental, our team benefits from the experience of our professional and expert orthodontists, all of whom have a deep understanding of Invisalign, its suitability for different patients, and its ability to correct certain dental problems. It’s virtually invisible and needs to be removed while cleaning your teeth or eating, although on average it needs to remain in your mouth for 22 hours each day. It’s a fantastic and modern orthodontic treatment that avoids interrupting your life.

    Essentially, if you’re an adult or teenager who wants a straighter smile, then Invisalign is a discreet and convenient treatment that’s perfect for you!

    Patient case study

    This is Invisalign® in action. See what our patients have to say about their Invisalign® treatment . . . and what their smiles have to show for it.

    I became self-conscious over one of my teeth rotating and leaving a gap. After reading about possible treatments, I discussed the matter with Dr Shah. He discussed the options he would recommend, clearly explaining the pros and cons, and I decided on treatment with Invisalign®. I was—and remain—impressed with Dr Shah’s sense of personal pride in his work, ensuring that I got the best results out of my treatment throughout the process. I think the results are excellent, and I would recommend that if your smile is affecting your confidence, you should consider discussing possible options with Dr Shah.

    Frequently asked questions

    • How much do Spark Aligners cost?

      The cost of Spark Aligners treatment will vary from one patient to another depending on the complexity of treatment.

      We are pleased to offer flexible financing options to help ease the financial burden of your Spark Aligners treatment. You can choose to pay as you go, use our in-house 12-month finance plan with an initial deposit, or opt for Tabeo financing with no deposit and 12 months of interest-free payments.

    • Will my Spark Aligners stain?

      Spark Aligners are made from a special material called TrueGEN, which has been specifically created to resist stains, ensuring your treatment is as invisible as possible.

    • How long will my Spark Aligners treatment take?

      Everyone is different with unique needs, so we cannot provide an indication of treatment time until we have seen you. Mild cases can be treated in 6 months, while complex cases will take up to 18 months. This is why we offer a free consultation so that we can assess your individual case and provide a clear idea of estimated treatment time, and cost.

    • Are Spark Aligners removable?

      Yes! One of the benefits of Spark Aligners is that they are removable for eating and drinking. This also means that you can take your aligners out if you have an event to attend where you’d feel more comfortable without them.

    • Will my Spark Aligners treatment hurt?

      Any type of orthodontic treatment works by pulling and pushing your teeth into a different, more desirable position. This means that the treatment can cause the teeth to ache and feel sore, especially during the first few days of a new Spark Aligner. All of our patients are able to manage this discomfort with over-the-counter painkillers.

    • Am I a good candidate for Spark Aligners?

      Spark Aligners can treat many orthodontic concerns including, crowding, crossbite, open bite, overbite, underbite, deep bite, and spacing. This means that most patients find that Spark Aligners treatment is a great option for them. The best way to find out is with a free consultation at Parkfield Dental.

    What Can Invisalign Treat?

    Crowded teeth

    Crowded teeth is when your teeth don’t quite have enough room in your jaw to fit as they should with the right amount of space between each tooth. If you have crowded teeth, you’ll notice that your teeth overlap and can become twisted from side to side or even become pushed backwards or forwards in order to fit alongside your other teeth.

    As well as being a cosmetic issue that many patients wish to fix, crowded teeth can harm your hygiene by making brushing and flossing more difficult than usual. This makes crowded teeth more difficult to keep healthy and means that they can actually become worse over time.

    Fortunately, Invisalign clear aligners have been designed in order to help deal with crowded teeth. If you’re hoping for a permanent solution to your crowded teeth, then you’ve come to the right place. Here at Parkfield Dental, our team has experienced professionals with particular expertise in orthodontics including Invisalign, so don’t hesitate to get in touch and schedule a consultation today.

    Gap teeth

    When you suffer from gap teeth, it means that the spacing between your teeth is wider than what is normally expected. This can be an issue whether you have wide gaps between all your teeth or only a few. The problem arises because it is much easier for food to get stuck high up between your teeth. This can lead to sore gums and, in some cases, problems with gum disease.

    Here at Parkfield Dental, our orthodontics experts are experienced in delivering Invisalign for patients with gap teeth. If you’re looking for a solution for your problems with gap teeth, get in touch with us to find out more.

    Overbite

    An overbite occurs when your top and bottom jaws are not properly aligned, leading to the teeth of your upper jaw extending further out over your bottom teeth, covering them. This can sometimes be hereditary but is also often caused by behaviours in childhood such as thumb-sucking or extended use of a bottle.

    If you are worried that you have an overbite, we recommend getting in touch with the orthodontists here at Parkfield. An overbite could cause issues in the future, such as gum damage, jaw pain, sleep apnoea, tooth damage, and more.

    Underbite

    You have an underbite if, when you close your jaw, your bottom teeth extend out beyond your upper teeth. This can sometimes be a complicated matter and is often caused by the entire bottom jaw being misaligned, rather than just the teeth. However, Invisalign has a proven track record of efficiently dealing with and correcting underbites.

    It’s important to deal with an underbite because of the issues it may cause you. Underbites are known to cause difficulty in both speaking and eating, pain in the face and jaw, and eventual tooth and gum problems.

    Crossbite

    Unlike an overbite or underbite, a crossbite occurs when only some of your upper teeth rest behind your lower teeth. It’s called a crossbite because your teeth alignment crosses over, which can cause you some severe dental problems later down the line. For example, people with a crossbite have been known to have chipped and worn down teeth and gums, with some even having problems with bone loss.

    A crossbite can be quite a complicated dental matter to deal with, but fortunately Invisalign is capable of dealing with and correcting most cases of crossbites. For more information, a consultation with our experienced Invisalign experts will help you to find the right solution for you.

    Open bite

    Very simply, an open bite is when you completely close your jaw but your top and bottom teeth do not fully connect. Open bites are particularly known for making it difficult to eat, chew and swallow – particularly for certain foods for which biting into something harder is necessary.

    Sometimes, an orthodontic solution isn’t always appropriate to deal with an open bite. However, in cases where the open bite can be corrected with an aligner, Invisalign has become the go-to solution for the patients here at Parkfield Dental.

    Straighter teeth, in general

    Now, this one might seem obvious – but yes! Invisalign is absolutely fantastic for adjusting slightly crooked teeth and turning your smile into a straighter and more even one! The truth is that very few of us are lucky to be born with perfect teeth – most of us would adjust something about our teeth, given the choice.

    A small fix to your smile can make a huge amount of difference, giving you the extra confidence that you’re looking for. And with Invisalign, you can achieve these fantastic results, even more discreetly and quickly than ever before!

    How Do I Need To Take Care Of My Aligners?

    There are a few things to remember when taking care of your aligners:

    • Brush your teeth after every meal before putting your aligners back in.
    • You can brush your aligners or rinse them in lukewarm water – but never put them in hot water
    • Before putting your aligners in, you need to make sure that both your teeth and the aligners themselves are as clean as possible
    • Your aligners can become stained
    • If you lose or break an aligner, let us know – we can order a replacement for you

    It’s very important to remember to brush your teeth after every meal before putting your aligner back in. This is because your aligners can actually get stained and ruined if placed into a dirty mouth with a lot of food residue still present. It’s also important to ensure that your aligners are clean before putting them back in – if you drop them or spill something on them, rinse them in lukewarm water or brush them to make sure they are clean.

    However, remember to never wash your aligners in hot water. This is because the hot water can actually warp the plastic on the retainers, ruining them completely. If this does happen, or you damage or lose your aligner at all, try to get in touch with us here at Parkfield as soon as possible. We can help find a solution, whether that be using an old aligner or ordering a new one as quickly as we can. Invisalign aligners are considered a prescription item, so make sure that you come to us to order a replacement.
