Is Invisalign as Effective Metal Braces When Treating a Cross Bite?

July 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Drs Cannell and Stafford. I’m 24 and my teeth are horrible. I was told I didn’t need braces when I was younger but as I’ve got older they’ve just got worse and worse.I have real confidence issues because of them so I really want to get them sorted out. I don’t want metal braces because I’m too self-conscious. I have a severe cross bite, do you think Invisalign would be as good as fixing this problem as metal braces? Thank you.

Is Invisalign Right For Me?

June 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi, I was just wondering if you think Invisalign is right for me? I have severely overcrowded bottom teeth and my top 2 front teeth protrude very noticeably. I’ve had braces on in the past but I was name called a lot so didn’t want fixed braces again. I’ve heard Invisalign is a clear type. Do you think I could have the treatment from what I’ve told you?

Can I swap my fixed bracs for Invisalign aligners?

April 27th, 2012
Q.

Hello,
I currently wear a metal brace on both my upper and lower teeth which was done on the NHS. I have recently come into some money and would like to switch to a more discreet brace and I have been reading about them online such as Invisalign and the Inman aligner but my main worry is that as I have been wearing metal braces for over a year I won’t be able to switch. Could you give me any advice?

I am worried about the pressure of braces on my teeth, is Invisalign a good option?

October 26th, 2011
Q.

how much pressure does invisalign put on the teeth? I had braces when I was younger that were fixed and i have never felt pain like it. I stuck with them for a month but then could not take it any longer and had to have them out. I am now 30 and would really love to have a decent smile, but i have been put off for years by the thought of all that pain again! I though id ask about invisalign, just as it isn’t a fixed brace, so i was hoping that it wouldn’t be as painful. Am i right in thinking this, or are there any other braces that would be even gentler? Im not worried about how long it takes as long as it gets done.

thank you doctor

What should I actually expect to pay for invisalign?

July 8th, 2011
Q.

Hello,

i am looking into getting invisalign for the treatment of my gapped teeth. I have been looking at the prices offered at a number of different practices and have noticed somes are about £2000 and some are £3500. I am a person who believes if its too good to be true it is and so would like to know if the higher end of the scale is the most likely price i will be paying?

thank you for any help you can give and for reading my message

Are Invisalign as good as traditional fixed braces?

June 13th, 2011
Q.

Hello,

could you tell me how long invisalign has been around and the rate of success and time frame compared to other more traditional brace systems? I am looking to get braces as i have very crooked teeth and am torn between the attractiveness of invisible braces and the established nature of metal braces. I don’t really want to have braces and find the work less than satisfactory but it would be nice to have unnoticeable braces at the same time. From your experience are they as good as metal braces and how long have you been using invisalign?
thank you for your time doctor

I’ve just had my braces removed and my teeth look bigger.

May 10th, 2011
Q.

I had my braces removed after 18 months (upper ceramic and lower metal) 3 months ago. My teeth are bigger as a result, especially the two front teeth. I’ve been told that this is as a result of the bone reforming/changing shape and not because they have been pulled from the gums. I’m disappointed with the result. Will the teeth eventually shorten after a period of time? The top 2 rows are also slightly pushed outwards and i smile less than i used to.

I have been told only metal braces can improve jaw alignment. Can Invisalign not help me?

April 1st, 2011
Q.

Dear Dr Raj

I have had two consultations at seperate dentists and the Dr’s have said that the way my upper jaw has grown from birth to now (26 years), that only metal braces would be suitable. :(

My two front teeth stick out a bit but otherwise they are all ok. Can you help with a nice smile?
