Meet your Invisalign Dentists in Bournemouth

Zak [Orthodontist Bournemouth]

Meet Zak

Zak grew up in his parents’ record shop (trendy or what) and spent his life getting to know people and their stories. So don’t expect much silence when you visit!

He was also that kid who loved to take things apart to see how they work, so that curiosity for craftsmanship and problem-solving is the heartbeat behind Zak’s love for designing head-turning smiles.

His clients usually comment on his attention to detail and the fact that there’s always plenty of laughter on the way.

Zak’s back-story includes working and studying overseas in Australia and in the USA, and annual voluntary projects in rural Africa.

Hundreds of clients have had their teeth straightened safely by Zak over more than a decade, having studied for his Postgraduate Diploma at the University of  Bristol. His proven expertise in Invisalign comes from the Master Clear Orthodontic International Programme in Spain, and global leader Kenji Ojima in Japan.

Meet Gareth

Home-grown Gareth went to school right around the corner and did his work experience in the clinic which is now Smile Stories. Apparently, it was just meant to be!

He’s crazily passionate about making people smile. Although he loves dentistry, it’s always you, the person behind the smile which matters. It’s the whole picture. (It’s not coincidence we’re called Smile Stories!

After your experience, if you’re able to take your first smiling selfie, beam unashamedly on your wedding photos or chirp up on your work Zoom call then he’s delighted that he’s done his job.

Gareth was double award-nominated for Best Young Dentist in the 2020 Dentistry Awards and is an Invisalign expert, having trained for the Postgraduate Diploma in Clear Aligner Therapy from the City of London Dental School.

Invisalign Bournemouth FAQs

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a discreet, comfortable way to straighten your teeth without the use of the more traditional ‘train-track’ metal wire braces. These nearly invisible removable aligners are made of plastic and are custom-made for each patient. Throughout the course of treatment, the patient receives several sets of aligners which are adjusted each time to gradually straighten teeth.

How much does Invisalign cost?

The cost of Invisalign varies depending on the treatment you need. Factors such as the type of Invisalign aligners you need and the complexity of the issues being treated will affect the price. Prices vary from around £1,800 to £4,495, and we do have a flexible 0% interest-free finance options up to 24 months option.

How long does Invisalign take?

Invisalign treatment can take around 12 – 18 months, but it can be as quick as 6 months, depending on the complexity of the treatment. 

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign works via a series of custom-made aligners, each one designed to slightly adjust your teeth to a straighter position. You will wear each aligner for around 2 weeks, in which time your teeth will move up to 0.25mm before changing to the next aligner which is designed to move them another 0.25mm until your teeth are in the desired position. Find out more here.

Can you sleep in the aligners?

Yes, and you must do. The aligners are a snug fit and there’s no danger of them coming off overnight.

Will you need a retainer?

Always. It doesn’t matter whether you use Invisalign or old train track braces, without a retainer your teeth will move back to a certain degree.

We can provide fixed retainers (a thin piece of metal behind the teeth) or removable retainers (similar to the Invisalign aligners). This is down to you and we can discuss which option is best at your consultation.

Can you eat with Invisalign?

You will need to remove your Invisalign aligners when eating. You can also remove them for special occasions and when playing sport, but just remember you need to wear them 22 hours daily.  Find out more here.

Can you drink with Invisalign?

You will need to remove your Invisalign aligners when drinking, but always keep in mind you will need to wear them for 22 hours per day. Find out more here.

Does Invisalign hurt?

Invisalign is not painful, especially when compared to train track braces.

Invisalign Bournemouth is superior to conventional braces as there are no brackets or wires, so they won’t rub on your cheeks.

Every week, when the clear aligners are changed there will be gentle pressure placed on the teeth being straightened for a few hours. This isn’t painful as such, more of a general discomfort, and is nothing a painkiller won’t help. Find out more here.

 

How to clean Invisalign

You should rinse your Invisalign aligners every night and gently brush them with your toothbrush. You can also use the official Invisalign cleaning crystals by adding one packet of cleaning crystals to 100ml of water, allowing them to dissolve and then adding your Invisalign aligners for 20 minutes.

Can you smoke with Invisalign?

We’d discourage you from doing this as it can cause staining to the aligners. Although you don’t wear them for long, they will still darken. Find out more here.

Can Invisalign fix overbite?

Invisalign is incredibly versatile. It can treat overbites, underbites, crowded teeth, spaced teeth, overjets and all other orthodontic issues. You name it, Invisalign has you covered.

Will aligners affect your speech?

It could take a day or two for your tongue and mouth to get used to them and you may have a slight lisp while it does. This will only happen on the very first aligner, not every time you change them.

Will Invisalign move crowns and bridges?

The clear aligners can move individual teeth, including crowns. Because bridges are attached to next door teeth the aligners can be ineffective. However, this is not to say that we can’t take the bridge off, complete the orthodontic treatment and then refill the space.

Can you get Invisalign on the NHS?

No, you cannot get Invisalign on the NHS. The NHS will offer traditional metal braces if there is a severe need for orthodontic work, but Invisalign is a private dental treatment. Find out more here.

Can I get Invisalign if I have cavities?

It is not recommended to get Invisalign treatment whilst you have cavities. At Smile Stories, we provide a full service, so we can fill your cavities before Invisalign treatment begins. Find out more here.
