Invisalign in Earley, Reading

Braces are a convenient and powerful way to obtain a more confident smile. But clear braces simply aren’t for everyone, and they can be inconvenient or even painful. That is why The Gallery Dental Centre offers Invisalign, clear-aligners that help correct visible problems such as crooked teeth and gaps. If you are ready for a transformative effect on your smile, contact us for a complimentary consultation.

Why Invisalign?

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is the perfectly subtle way to get straighter, more beautiful teeth. Being transparent and easily removable, this is a highly popular method of treatment for over five million people.

With Invisalign clear braces, you also don’t have to worry about annoying wires coming loose or having difficulty chewing. You are in control of when the aligners come off, so it’s easy to remove them quickly while brushing your teeth or having a meal.

Though not everyone is eligible for this system, one of our highly trained professionals can quickly examine your teeth and provide you with a number of great options. If you are eligible for an Invisalign system, we will take highly accurate impressions of your teeth so that we can create custom-made aligners just for you.

Invisalign FAQs

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a way to straighten your teeth that is almost invisible. Your teeth are moved little by little with a set of clear aligners that are made just for you.

Each aligner is worn for about one to two weeks before being switched out for the next one in the series. This is done so that the teeth gradually move to where they are supposed to be in the end.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are almost invisible, and most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.

Since Invisalign aligners can be taken out, you can drink and eat whatever you want while you are getting treatment. You can also take out the aligners to brush and floss your teeth as usual.

There aren’t any metal brackets or wires, which is different from fixed braces. This means that most of the time, adjustments and check-ups take less time, which makes the experience more comfortable.

And finally, the Invisalign System lets you see your virtual results and treatment plan before you start treatment. This way, you can see how your teeth are supposed to look when your treatment is done. This is a great way for you to confirm that you are pleased with what we can do for you with Invisalign at The Gallery Dental Centre in Reading.

How much does it cost to get Invisalign?

As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the price of Invisalign depends on how hard it is to straighten your teeth and how long it takes to do so. In general, the cost for adults is between £2,500 and £4,000, which is about the same as traditional fixed braces.

What is the duration of the Invisalign treatment?

The length of time it takes depends on how hard the treatment is, but it’s usually about the same as with traditional braces. We can give you an idea of how long your treatment will take during your consultation. Most cases take between 4 and 12 months to finish.

Can I get treatment with Invisalign from any dentist?

Only a small number of dentists are trained to use Invisalign, but the dentists at The Gallery Dental Centre in Reading are fully trained. They can help you reach your oral health goals with Invisalign.

What do I need to do to start using Invisalign?

For a free first consultation about Invisalign treatment, please call or email The Gallery Dental Centre in Reading.

What do aligners look like and what are they made of?

People leave their marks. The aligners are made of a strong thermoplastic material that was made just for the Invisalign® System and is almost invisible. The aligners are made to fit your teeth perfectly and are made just for you.

How frequently should I wear my aligners?

During treatment, you should wear your aligners at all times except when eating, brushing, or flossing your teeth. Wear for 22 hours per day.

How often must I see my Invisalign provider?

Patients usually visit their Invisalign Provider every 4 to 8 weeks to make sure the treatment is going as planned and to get their next few sets of Invisalign aligners, but your Invisalign Provider will make a decision based on your treatment.

Is it painful to get Invisalign?

When a new set of aligners is put in at the start of each new stage of treatment, some people may feel temporary, mild pain for a few days. This is normal, and most people call it feeling “pressured.” It means that the aligners are doing their job, and it usually goes away after a few days.

What kind of food can I eat while I’m getting treatment?

No. With the Invisalign® System, you can eat and drink whatever you want during treatment, unlike with traditional wires and brackets. This is because you take out your aligners to eat and drink. Before putting your aligners back in, this also makes it easy to brush and floss your teeth after every meal to keep your mouth clean.

How should I clean my clear braces?

The best way to clean your aligners is to use the Invisalign Cleaning Crystals or special cleaning tablets and brush and rinse them in lukewarm water. To keep your mouth healthy, you should brush your teeth after every meal before putting your aligners back in.

Will the aligners make it hard to talk?

The vast majority of people say that their speech is not affected. But, just like with traditional orthodontic devices, it takes some time to get used to having something new in the mouth.

Can I still smoke with the aligners on?

Even if you wear aligners, you can still smoke, but you shouldn’t because smoking can stain or change the colour of the aligners.

Can I chew gum with my braces on?

It’s not a good idea to chew gum while wearing aligners because gum can stick to them. It is best to take out your aligners for all meals and snacks.

Is a retainer needed once the Invisalign treatment is done?

After getting orthodontic treatment, it’s important to wear a retainer to keep your teeth in their new positions. If you want your teeth to stay where they should be, Gallery Dental Centre in Reading will tell you to wear a retainer. Most of the time, your last aligner will also be your temporary retainer until you decide which way to keep your teeth in place. The Gallery Dental Centre near Reading will talk to you about how to keep your teeth straight for a longer time.
