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.
