Would Invisalign or Inman Aligners help fix my wonky teeth?

Q. I used to have braces when i was 13, due to my oral fixation (thumb-sucking) they were straight for a while, but soon grew apart again : ( Nevertheless, i am now 20 years old am wondering whether Invisalign or Inman Aligner would benefit me more? Thanks,
A. Hi. If you haven’t been giving any retainer (fixed or removable) or not wearing it than teeth are more likely to go back to there original position. There are different types of invisalign treatment and the Inman Aligner, but it all depends on what will be suitable for you and which one would give you the best end result. I would advise you to go and see a Cosmetic invisalign Dentist for a consultation.

Arjun Says :

My 2 front teeth are crowns which i have had for 10 years, is invisalign a suitable product for me?

May 1st, 2011 at 08:47 PM
Elaina Says :

Hi Arjun, the crowns would not normally affect your suitability.

Victor Says :

Through recommendation of one of your patients I have become interested in your Invisalign treatment. I had a fixed brace between the ages of 13-16, but my teeth have started to slip back to the way they were before my brace. I’m very conscious of my smile and I hope Invisalign could fix this problem! Please could you send me more information on this treatment.

Jewel Says :

Hi there, I am currently having invisalign with a dentist and am just aboutto embark on refinement. 3 retainers have been suggested. I am very unhappy with my dentist and do not feel confident or comfortable with his service. The level of care has been appalling. Would you consider taking over thiscase and if so how much would this cost please? I have paid my current dentist for full treatment but have been unable to find out how to transfer cases or if I can get any money back. Many thanks,

Laney Says :

I am writing to enquire about the invisalign and six month smile braces that you currently offer. Essentially my front bottom teeth are slightly crooked and I would like to have them treated, how much do six month smile braces cost? and seeing as it would be relatively simple invisalign would it becloser to the C2A32000 mark? Kind Regards,

Jaden Says :

I have a problem with my upper teeth(central Insicor)as well as with my lateral Insicor. (central insicor is slightly twisted and the lateral I. has moved too much forward so that i have a gap now. I am interested in the Lingual braces or the transparent braces( INVISALIGN). If you could let me knowwhich one would be more appropriate and why so. I am still a student therefore I am looking for a reasonable price. I am clear that they will cost more than the regular braces.

Thaddeus Says :

hello I am looking into have my front teeth straightend as they are overcrowded on the top. I see you do a number of almost invisible brace treatmentsand wanted to know if i were to come and have a consultation with you forsay invisalign would your specialists advise on all treatments available orjust the invisalign? As i am interseted in all treatments available and would want to know what would be my best option, including the prices aswell.I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks

June 1st, 2011 at 08:47 PM
Joaquin Says :

I’m very tempted by this course of action but just wanted to have a few questions answered before I go ahead with the procedure. Here goes; 1)Howmuch is the total cost for the invisalign braces? 2)what does this includeexactly? 3)are there additional costs for moulds/records? 4)are refinements included in the cost? 5)if treatment does not go to plan and a correctionrequired is there extra cost? 6)if an aligner is lost/broken who pays fora replacement? 7)are there payment plans available?

Alaina Says :

I am interested in the possibility of Invisalign treatment – or something similar – to correct a quite severe case of “Buck teethe”, could you pleaseadvise me if there is a relatively cheap or free initial cosultation. |I amaware the trteatment would cost several thousand pounds, which I can manage providing the treatment is likely to be auccesful. Many Thanks.

Franklin Says :

Hi,is it possible to start a case on a pregnant patient without taking x-rays?Thanks

June 8th, 2011 at 08:47 PM
Desmond Says :

it is possible but not advisable, since you will not know the root inclinations and any possible caries under existing restorations. You are aware thought that the guidelines for radiographs have changed regarding pregnant women. Contact Invisalign because with their new G3 software the radiographs are optional.

Karlie Says :

hello i wonder could you tell me is it the general practice of most dental clinics to offer a dental payment scheme for payment of brace work? I am really interested in getting invisalign to treat my crooked front teeth but do not think i will be able to afford £3500 upfront, so it would be really great if i could get it all broken up into affordable chunks thank you

July 13th, 2011 at 08:47 PM
Wayne Says :

Yes most practices offer various finance options. We offer 12 months interest free finance and we also have option to spread the cost between 2-5 years.

Timothy Says :

i have really, really gappy teeth, like with all of my teeth having gaps between them and i just wanted to know if invisalign treats this? thank you

July 25th, 2011 at 08:47 PM
Lucia Says :

Hello, We routinely use Invisalign to treat gappy dentitions, but the effectiveness of Invisalign in treating such cases is very much dependant upon the initial size and severity of the spacing. I would recommend you have a consultation with an experienced Invisalign Doctor so that a full clinical and radiographical assessment can me made for you. Wishing you every success with your treatment.

I’d like to know as an invisalign patient if I can swin in the sea and in the swimming pool with the braces. Thank you kindly,

July 27th, 2011 at 08:47 PM
Julio Says :

Yes swimming is absolutely no problem with your aligners.

Krystal Says :

hi I suffered an accident 4 months ago and have a gap at the side of my mouth. I am planning on have my teeth straightened with invisalign as the front 2 teeth are quite gapped, do you think it better for me to have the gap sorted out before or after the invisalign treatment? thank you for your time

August 16th, 2011 at 08:47 PM
Ismael Says :

Dear enquirer, it is better to have the gap sorted out after the Invisalign. Your dentist can place plastic teeth inside the aligners

August 30th, 2011 at 08:47 PM
Maximus Says :

12 years ago I had my jaw broken, which had to be reset. unfortunatley my teeth were never aligned properly, but the job was done to their best ability. Just recently I’ve noticed that my 2 top front teeth are pretruding and loose and I seem to be talking with a lipse. Please could you give me any advice. On correcting this i.e do I need to have my jaw reset ot is it a case of taking a visit to the dentist. Could you possibly give me any tips on getting my teeth white without any cosmetic dental treatment. Kind regards

August 30th, 2011 at 08:47 PM
Lea Says :

Hi You should come for a consultation in person , or find a specialist orhtodontist in your local area. This would be impossible to diagnose without a physical examination and Xrays Kind regards

August 31st, 2011 at 08:47 PM
Jeremiah Says :

Please can you let me know the approximate cost for correcting slightly protruding front teeth. Thank you.

Markus Says :

It depends on the type of treatmentg required at my practcice we offer about 6 different types of orthodontic treatment reanging form £1250-6000.

Wilson Says :

hello my front teeth are quite gapped and i am looking into getting brace treatment, but i have also been told by my regular dentist that i have very short roots, which may cause problems when it comes to orthodontics. What is your opinion of short roots and invisalign, are they compatible? thank you for your time

August 31st, 2011 at 08:47 PM
Jacquelyn Says :

Short roots is a problem but does not mean you can not have treatment.

February 22nd, 2012 at 08:47 PM
Amelia Says :

Hello is it likely that I will need to have a tooth extracted before getting invisalign treatment? I have always been a little scared of both dentists and needles and for most of my life and so if it was possible to avoid having my teeth removed that would be amazing. The only problem is that my teeth are a little crowded, so I guess I’ve got no hope? 🙁 any help you can give would be brilliant

February 22nd, 2012 at 08:47 PM
Jonatan Says :

Hi ! I don’t think you have anything to worry about! For the vast majority of the cases we do not need to remove any teeth. It is best to be assessed first from an experienced invisalign provider just to be sure! Hope that helps

March 23rd, 2012 at 08:47 PM
Desirae Says :

what are the retainer options for when you stop wearing invisalign? if they are removable do you still have to wear them every day and if so for how long? What happens if you wear one out? As an expert do you think fixed retainers are a better choice over the removable types of retainers? thank you

March 23rd, 2012 at 08:47 PM
Angeline Says :

I look at the teeth and the types of movement needed to straighten them. I prefer to give my patients both fixed retainers and removable retainer as a large portion of people who come to see me have had braces at least once before. Retainers are for life but the amount you wear them reduces.

April 4th, 2012 at 08:47 PM
Jasmine Says :

I would like to know is Invisalign a good option for people who have a gap between their front teeth? I am looking to straighten my teeth in time for my wedding and really need the quickest treatment possible for this. I am due to be married in 11 months, do you think this will be enough time for Invisalign to work, or could you recommend another brace for me? many thanks

April 4th, 2012 at 08:47 PM
Koby Says :

Hi Depending on the size of the gap, the cause and your bite, Invisalign works very well for this. I have a case like this on this site….but I would suggest getting this started as soon as possible in time for your wedding. Good luck
