I would like invisable braces but I will like to know if they are strong and how long do they take to mould into the right position and if your teeth are not severly wonky then how long would it take?

hello I am wondering if I can get Invisalign braces for free, my friend have told me that if i act as a dental model for a dentist I would be able to get free invisalign but if i cant get it that way maybe I could get Invisalign at an NHS dentists I have seen a NHS dentist advertising Invisalign so surely its available on the NHS?

Dear Sir/Madam, I would like to the Invisalign treatment. However, I will only be in London for the next 5 months and after that I am going abroad for2 years. Is it possible to begin the treatment in London and continue it abroad? Thanking you.

Hi, I’m inquiring about your orthodontic services. I would love perfect smile, but do not know the right way to go about it. My front teeth on both arches are slightly overcrowded, but only minor corrections are needed. Could you please give me an approximate price quote on (a)your six month braces(b) invisalign and (c) the inman aligner. I understand that you cannot give an exact price quote without seeing the teeth, but an approximation wouldhelp me so much in determining which treatment will suit me best. Thank you,

My son is 13 years of age. His teeth are alright except that there are 2 growing from the top of his gums and he really wants the invisible braces. Is there any chance you could do them for free? Its his birthday in 22 days..
Much appreciated.

Elaine Says :

Hi It is very difficult to suggest what the best option in this situation as I need to examine your mouth. I would ask your current dentist or seek a second opinion

Bryce Says :

I know that the aligners are made in america, after a mould has been taken of your teeth, but could you tell me how long this usually takes? I am off on a trip soon but would love to start my invisalign treatment straight away as I now finally have the money to pay for it. Thank you very much for your time

August 24th, 2011 at 08:47 PM
Jadyn Says :

Hi As an approximate guide, your Clincheck (computer simulation of your proposed Invisalign treatment) is ready 2 weeks after the impressions (molds are taken). Once you and your dentist approve this, they can be ordered and manufactured then delivered within 2 weeks. So about 4 weeks in total from impressions / records to fit if no exceesive changes are required, hope this helps, regards

Katherine Says :

I had braces on my teeth when i was 15. Now multiple teeth hurt and my teeth are shifting. My jaw also hurts and i can’t bite properly using my molars. Braces are so expensive they are like £4000. i am 19 now. What can i do? Can you help me? Please i would really like you do help me. i also experience headaches and dizziness. I really fell let down buy the NHS. They are unhelpful. They don’t seem to have the patients best interest.

Kyleigh Says :

Ask your dentist for a referral to the local oral surgery department, they might be able to find out why your jaws are aching as braces don’t really help this problem

hellp i wanted to lnow what is the best methods for me if invisiline or damon system..i have a narrow face oberbite and crowding a small mouth too weatern dental sugested to pull out four teeth and i would think that will make my mouth smaller i realy dnt know what to do as a reatment i also have a big nose which i feel extracting teeth will make it look bigger

February 27th, 2012 at 08:47 PM
Elliot Says :

It sounds as if traditional braces would be better than Invisalign. Treatment withoiut extraction may be better treatment. I suggest you go to multiple consultaions with different orthodontists in an attempt to find one that is willing to treat you without taking teeth out.

Alice Says :

hi! I have a sort of ‘fang’ on the right side of my upper row of teeth, it;s a bit shorter than my normal teeth and looks really odd. I also had a wobbly tooth that didn’t want to come out, but when it did my tooth underneath it hadn’t formed properly (?) Additionally my top front teeth stick out a lot,;it’s not actually causing me any harm, but I really don’t like it ): I am 13 years old and my family is not exactly financially capable of paying for braces right now. Am i eligible for NHS braces? and if not is there anything else i could do? Thanks

May 8th, 2012 at 08:47 PM
Kieran Says :

Hi Katie You would have to see a nhs orthodontist to see if your case could be done on the NHS.

Emma McDonnell Says :

Hi , I think i have malocclusion as my jaw is out of line and my teeth are wonky. I am 21 years of age and was told it is to late to get braces free of charge now of the nhs. But i read somewhere that you can get them for £200 on the nhs, Is this true? I have anxiety and depression because of my teeth and i lack in confidence. It is affecting everything i do on a daily basis. I find myself touching my teeth all the time and i really feel like pulling them out, i need help.

emily Says :

Hello i am 13 and i need braces but im worried that i will have to have them for too long and i will get really fed up of them because people might judge me. I really want the invisalign braces so that they wont effect my image and make everyone look at my teeth instead of my face! You know? I was wondering whether i could get free invisalign braces with the NHS? Much appreciated!

Hi, I’m 13 years old and my top front teeth are too big and they stick out a lot. Also my bottom teeth are gappy. I was wondering if I’m allowed the clear brace for free? I get teased a lot and called things like rabbit, horse or bugs bunny. I’m just asking because I’m getting braces next year.

Kelli Says :

i’m 18 years old i lost my chance to put braces on when i was 16 due to exams, i don’t know if i have to pay for it or how much it will cost me. i have a gap between my front teeth that i’d really like to shut. the last appointment i had with my dentist when i applied for braces he said the only problem with my teeth was that gap and that i would only need to use braces for about 6 mouths. my question here is do i need to pay for it? should i apply for it again? should i make an appointment first?

February 14th, 2013 at 08:47 PM

Hi I’d speak to your dentist about an orthodontic appointment to discuss your treatment options and get some idea of costs.

Hana Says :

I am a 16 year old student and I have been waiting for a reply from my dentist for over 5years now. My teeths are getting worse and I have now moved to further away from where I used to live (London to West Midlands). My new dentist told me to get braces but he told me to wait 6months just like my old dentist did. I am with nhs and I have waited so long now. I will be turning 17 very soon and I will have to pay once I’m 18.
Is there anyway that I can get braces quicker and free?
I was thinking about invisible braces or damon ones…
Would they still be free for me and do I have to wait longer?

I’m 30 years old, I’m a single mum and I work full time. I have a 14 year old daughter and I recieve working and child tax credits. I’m entitled to free dentle treatment at the moment, I wondered if this would include any sort of brace for myself. My teeth are quite crooked and do effect my self confidence. Is there any help out there that I would be entitled to?
