If you want to straighten your teeth – or your child’s teeth – but are looking for an alternative to traditional fixed braces, Invisalign could be the perfect solution, as it uses the world’s most technologically advanced removable clear aligners to gently, precisely and safely reposition teeth. No wires, brackets or changes to your diet or teeth cleaning routine.
Specialist Orthodontist, Dr Kyi at West London Orthodontics, has treated countless Invisalign patients, including patients referred by other orthodontists or who think they’re not suitable for Invisalign virtually invisible braces.
Dr Kyi of Harley Street will personally plan and calculate the precise movements of your teeth, rather than leave it to dental technicians, to give you the smile you want as well as to safeguard the long-term health of your mouth.
Award-winning Dr Kyi will herself carry out the Invisalign ClinCheck treatment planning process – the key to optimal results – meticulously calculating the movement of each individual tooth, using her expertise as a Specialist Orthodontist to devise treatment solutions for even the trickiest cases, including for patients previously informed that Invisalign isn’t an option for them.
Invisalign is suited to a wide variety of cases, including crowded, twisted or overlapping teeth; gaps or spacing; overbites, underbites or crossbites; and relapsed teeth following previous straightening.
Specialist Orthodontist Dr Kyi, located on Hammersmith Grove, will personally plan your treatment in meticulous detail to ensure your final result gives you long-term stability and a balanced, harmonious facial profile.
Your Full Orthodontic Consultation with Dr Kyi will include:
Listening to You! Dr Kyi will be delighted to answer any and every question you may have to truly understand your goals before determining which treatment, or combination of treatments, would be right for you and then creating a customised plan for your specific case and goals.
Removable clear aligners which precisely fit your teeth and gently straighten them into correct position.
Nearly all types of cases are suitable including crowded teeth, overbites, underbites and closing gaps.
Dr Kyi will carry out a comprehensive orthodontic consultation to assess your suitability.
We will show you how to insert and remove the aligners. If attachments are needed, this is a very simple procedure as seen on this video.
It can take less than 6 months in some mild cases and around 15 months in some more complex cases.
After any type of orthodontic treatment, all our patients will be fitted with retainers to ensure the teeth do not move back or relapse after treatment.
They are virtually invisible, removable and comfortable to wear.
Initially, there may be some mild discomfort in the first few days with some possible temporary speech changes. This all settles down within a day or two of starting to wear the aligners. In very rare cases, patients may experience mild allergies or other side effects.
Following your consultation, we can confirm the complexity of the case and the type of Invisalign which would be suitable, the costs can range from £3000- £4500.
