Invisalign

Adult orthodontics is more popular than ever thanks to discreet straightening systems such as Invisalign. You can now achieve a straight smile without having to worry about noticeable braces.

Invisalign uses a series of clear, customised aligners. With no fixed brackets or wires, these can be taken out for cleaning your teeth and eating. Each aligner is very slightly different so crooked, crowded or gappy teeth can be gradually moved to an improved position.

At St Helier Dental Surgery, we have an accredited Invisalign provider. Dr Megha Deval provides free Invisalign consultations so you can discuss the treatment and go through what your goals are for your smile.

Why choose Invisalign?

Incredibly discreet

When worn, the clear aligners are near impossible to spot when you smile. Your friends and family will only know that you have them in if you tell them.

Comfortable and removable

The aligners are made using cutting edge technology, promising an accurate fit that’s both snug and comfortable when worn. As they are removable, there’s no need to change your eating habits as you can just take them out when dining.

Innovative and fuss-free

We have full use of 3D technology at our practice so everything is handled digitally. There are no messy moulds or unnecessary paperwork. We take digital impressions at the practice and use this tech to show you the step-by-step journey your teeth will take to reach their straighter position.

What does the treatment involve?

We first see you for your free consultation where we discuss the treatment at length and make sure that your oral health is in top condition. The healthier your smile, the better it responds to the straightening treatment.

Impressions and photos are taken of your teeth and 3D technology creates a personalised plan which shows how your teeth will move and look following treatment.

When the unique aligners have been produced in a laboratory, you wear a different one every two weeks until the desired result is achieved.
Treatment times can vary but most cases are usually completed within 6-12 months. However, you do have to be sure to wear the aligners for 22-24 hours per day to benefit from successful and speedy results. You will also need to wear a retainer following treatment to keep your newly aligned teeth straight.

Frequently Asked Questions – FAQ

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an alternative to braces, where it uses clear, customised aligners without brackets or wires. It also can be easily removed for eating or brushing your teeth, but will still allow your teeth to be moved into the right position.

How quickly do teeth move with Invisalign?

The amount of time teeth take to move depends on person to person, but the average time it takes is 6-12 months, only if the aligners are worn for 22-24 hours per day.

Does Invisalign change your face shape?

A change to crooked teeth can change the shape of your face but in a good way and if you have an overbite your upper lip could extend.

Does Invisalign make teeth yellow?

Invisalign does not make teeth yellow as long as you do not smoke whilst wearing them and brush your teeth after eating and before putting them back in.

Do you take Invisalign out to sleep?

No, as Invisalign needs to be worn for 22-24 hours per day for the effects to take place and should not be taken out for more than two hours.

The smiling reception is always professional and friendly and I was so pleased when my Dentist, Dr. Deval, took time to inform me of my choices which were best for me personally. A refreshing change. A smashing Dentist, Tuba and her lovely assistant Sanju have taken over from Dr Deval. Tuba, cares about her patients and works towards them keeping a healthy smile, she's a credit to the Dentist profession as is her assistant Sanju. She got rid of an abscess painlessly and on my next appointment she miraculously saved my tooth for which I am so grateful. Valentina and Sarah who work on the reception desk are always welcoming and very helpful. Many thanks to a great Dentist and her team. L Lambert.

I'm so grateful for all the effort and support during my two visits with Dr Tuba Pishgharavol at St Helier Dental Surgery in Morden. Dr Pishgharavol is really a professional, and at the same time showed her passion and commitment in very complicated a root canal treatment. However, all other staff is very polite, friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this dental practice to my friends.

Very good professional service. The practice has a calm and helpful feel about it. I was very pleased with the tooth whitening treatment. The results are better then I expected and the treatment was easy to apply and comfortable to use. I would recommend this surgery for nervous patients like me.
