We have just been awarded Silver Invisalign status which means we have treated a high number of patients successfully using the Invisalign system.
People often ask us who it is suitable for and what sort of age range it attracts and the answer really is any age! We always start off with one of our free consultations initially and that’s where the Invisalign or Six Month Journey with us starts…
What we are finding more and more is that people are coming to see us for these treatments having already had braces when they were in there teens and have now seen a relapse in their treatment which is mainly due to the lack of retention after the treatment has finished.
We always stress to our patients that the retention stage of your orthodontic treatment is one of the most important. Retainers are used to hold the teeth into the position that they are in after the orthodontic treatment has been completed or in other words the position you want your teeth to be in!
The importance of retention is something which has been realised more and more over the years, and if you have a teenager in the house who is undergoing orthodontic treatment then you might need to get nagging at them (add another thing to the list!) to make sure they are wearing their retainers (if they have the removable kind) as they have been advised by the orthodontist.
If you are unsure about any aspect of the retention stage or in fact any part of your orthodontic treatment please do not hesitate to call us or speak to the specialist orthodontic practice who provided the initial braces.
The retainers which we provide are Vivera . Wearing Vivera retainers means you can protect your smile – now and in the future. You are provided with 3 sets so if you lose one of they become worn you always have a back up!
Vivera retainers are made with the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign aligners. This means that by using Vivera retainers to maintain your new smile, you benefit from some of the same qualities found in our revolutionary aligners.
We can provide Vivera retainers even if you haven’t had your orthodontic treatment here, Zoe and the team would be happy to help and advise you!
