The Home Straight – Invisalign Results!

With the end of my Invisalign treatment in sight, I was so pleased with the results so far. After my 15th aligner my teeth were all straight but still had larger gaps between them. When I saw Matt he gave me my final lot of aligners that are designed to pull my teeth back together to close the gaps.

I noticed straight away that the gaps had started to close up and after 4 weeks they looked great, just in time for my wedding day. I didn’t even need to wear my 18th aligner!

After my 17th aligner I had the blobs of composite removed and impressions taken for a retainer. Photos were also taken at this visit.  

My retainers were fitted 2 weeks later and I wear these every night. As I’ve learnt from past experience, if you don’t wear your retainers the teeth will move back. 

I’m so grateful to Matt as I’m really happy with my smile now. Loads of people have complimented me on how good they look.

It can be a bit a bit frustrating having to take them out every time you eat, but you get used to it and after a week or so it just seems normal. 

It’s been a quick process and I’m really happy with the results, I can’t stop smiling! If you’re thinking about Invisalign I’d 100% recommend it. Call us today to book in on 01773 832164 for a free Smile Audit to check your suitability!

Tray 12-14

Before starting my 12th tray I had to have an appointment with Matt again. At this visit he looked to see how things were going, ensuring the teeth were moving into position as they should be.  At this visit I also needed more “interproximal reduction” (little bits polishing off the side of some teeth to allow them space to move). Before Matt did this he put a retractor in my mouth to move my lips out of the way, although this looks a bit strange it’s totally comfortable and nothing to worry about.  After about 5 minutes and a bit of water the interproximal reductions was finished, the cold water was slightly sensitive but not painful. It was a bit of a shock looking in the mirror afterward as my bottom teeth looked really happy.

I know this is only short term & as the teeth move into line the gaps will close. Over the next few weeks I have noticed a lot more food trapping between my teeth, so I keep a TePe brush in my handbag at all times.

I also found this set of trays caused my mouth to ache the most, I’ve not needed painkillers but I have been aware of discomfort for a few days after changing each tray. The discomfort is all worth it though, as I’m writing this I am wearing tray number 14 and I’m totally amazed at the results so far! My teeth are now practically straight & I can really start to see how the end result will soon look…… bring on the next few aligners!!!

Trays 2-5

After the first 2 weeks Matt saw me again, he asked if I had any issues to which I had none, wearing the trays for the recommended 22 hours a day has been much easier than I anticipated. At this visit Matt shaved a little off the side of one of my teeth which was completely painless, this bit of space gives room for the teeth to move into as they straighten out. Once this was done he placed the second tray in for me. Matt then provided me with the next 2 trays to change myself at home on 2 week intervals. I have made it through trays 2 to 5 without much discomfort. I’m finding the process relatively simple and it hasn’t affected my daily life much and the time is flying by. I have had quite a few patients talk about orthodontics to me and when I tell them that I’m wearing Invisalign they are really shocked as they hadn’t even noticed, which is great! I feel confident talking and smiling knowing that they are hardly visible.

 

Trays 5-11

Following completion of the 5th tray, it was time for another appointment with Matt, there was no more treatment required yet; just a check to see if the teeth were moving as they should and that I had no issues such as lost composite achievements (the little white filling I mentioned earlier). The visit was slightly delayed as I was on holiday so I had been wearing tray number 5 for 3 weeks rather than 2. I had no issues smiling on my holiday photos and when I look at them I don’t even notice the aligners. I can really tell my teeth have started to move, I have even changed the size of inter-dental brushes I use to clean in between, I am really happy with the results so far and can’t wait for my journey to continue. I have been a bit naughty with my aligners though but have definitely learned my lesson. As we have been experiencing a heat wave I thought the odd glass of sugar free orange wouldn’t effect anything if I just left my tray in. I was wrong! It stained them yellow, it was hardly visible when I had them in but they looked rather nasty when I took them out. I couldn’t wait to change in to my next set, that’s a mistake I will not be making again!

Tray 1

The practice received my trays about 2 weeks later, I was really happy at how quickly they arrived. I had a short 30 minute appointment with Matt where he attached some small white filling on the sides of some teeth to which my Invisalign fit around (these are removed after treatment). There was no discomfort at all during this treatment just a retraction screen holding my lips out the way at a little water in my mouth. Once Matt had attached the bits of white filling he then put my first sets of trays in for me. He gave me my instructions on wearing the aligners along with a couple of tray boxes, one for the current tray and one for the previous tray as I move through my treatment. He also gave me a ‘chewie’, basically a little bit of plastic to chew on 20 minutes a day to help set the aligners and aid tooth movement.

 

By the evening my teeth were a little achy but nothing too terrible. My teeth felt more painful when the trays were out so I actually liked having them in, it’s a good job really as I will be wearing them for 22 hours a day! For the first couple of days it was a bit strange having something constantly in my mouth and I was definitely aware of them when I was talking. I noticed I had a slight lisp and was also spitting a bit as I spoke. This was all resolved on about day 3, by then I hardly noticed I was wearing them.

It was no bother taking them out to eat and drink then brushing and flossing before putting them back in. I had to reduce the amount I snacked though to ensure I was wearing the tray enough. I made sure I upped the calories in my meals so that I was feeling more full and not tempted to snack. I kept a toothbrush, mini tooth paste and floss in my bag so I could give my teeth a clean if I went out for meals. I changed my morning routine up so that I brushed after breakfast rather than before, I also used the time I was having breakfast to give my aligners a clean in some Retainer Brite ensuring they were fresh for the day ahead.

Our Hygiene Therapist Sara Begins her Invisalign Treatment!

Hello, my name is Sara and most patients will recognise me as the Hygiene Therapist here at Glendair!

As part of my Invisalign treatment I have agreed to write a blog, hopefully it will shed a little light on the Invisalign process for anybody considering the treatment. 

It seems only right to start with why I wanted the treatment in the first place. As a young teen my teeth were quite wonky, particularity the bottom ones and like most people my age I had the typical train track braces for around 18 months. When my braces were removed the results were amazing, perfect straight teeth, I was delighted. After treatment was complete I was provided with a retainer and instructions to wear it at night for the next 6 months. After this time period I stopped wearing it which I now know was a massive mistake.

Gradually over the years my teeth started to move back and my bottom front teeth became crowded again. At first this didn’t bother me as it was my bottom teeth they weren’t as noticeable, that was until one particular holiday photo…

It was a once in a lifetime trip to Bali where we went to a temple that was overrun with monkeys, and what a great photo I got, a monkey right on the top of my head, well I say great photo… all except from my clearly visible lower teeth. One of the bottom teeth was pushed back due the crowding and it actually looked like I had a front tooth missing. Which is not a good look at any age never mind in your early 20’s.

Sara with Monkey

Since this day I have always been quite concious of my smile and over the past few years I have also noticed some minor movement in one of my top teeth as well. I knew I wanted some sort of orthodontic treatment to correct them but wasn’t sure which would be the best method for me. I am dental therapist but had limited knowledge on the appropriate method to straighten my teeth so that was where Matt came in.

Will Dermal Fillers Make Me Look Fake?

We’ve come to the final post for our most frequently asked question series! To read all of my previous posts, take a look at our blog here where I have answered 10 questions altogether about anti wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. 

In this post, I will be giving my advise for a common question we have in regard to dermal fillers… “Will fillers make me look fake?” and how we can prevent this!

Well, here at Glendair, we believe in a “less is more” approach. The aim of our facial treatments is to make you feel rejuvenated and provide a natural and refreshed look! We will always consult with you at our 30 minute free consultation to determine the look you want to achieve.

Do Dermal Fillers Hurt?

For a lot of people we see, whether dermal fillers are going to hurt or not can be quite a concern.

Some areas are more sensitive than others – especially around the lips and mouth.

A dental anaesthetic can be given before treatment or numbing cream can be applied. Many patients can comfortably tolerate treatment of the nose-to-mouth and marionette lines without any anaesthetic, but we will always take your opinion into consideration.

We can use a cannula in many areas to administer the dermal filler. These feel more comfortable and can be used to treat larger areas such as the cheeks and tear troughs. They also require fewer injection points!

To discuss dermal fillers with me further, you can either read my previous blog posts here or give our reception team a call and book in. Our telephone number is 01773 832164 and we offer a free consultation at our #FlawlessAtGlendair session.

What’s happening at Glendair?

Glendair renovations

As you have probably seen from the numerous photos posted on our Facebook page, there has been a lot going on at Glendair Dental Practice

But what exactly has been happening lately? Have we had an extension? These are the questions we’ve been asked a lot, so we’ll be revealing all right here in this blog post! 

(Ps. Get ready for A LOT of before and after photos!)

The story begins with Matthew. As many of you are probably aware, Mat is the principal dentist here at Glendair. 

Matthew Lamb

For the past seven years, Mat has been busy gaining advanced qualifications in both dental implant placement and complex dentistry. At the same time, he has continued to deliver the high standards of care that you have come to expect at Glendair. 

As you can imagine, this has become a bit of a juggling act for Mat! It has resulted in him working longer hours whilst trying to balance this complex work around his normal working day.

After a while (and after much thought and deliberation), Mat decided to devote all of his time to this rapidly developing area of complex dentistry. With that came the decision to build a brand new surgery, creating an implant referral centre at our practice.

So after a lot of planning and preparation, work finally began bright and early on Monday 12th September 2016.

Instead of extending the practice, the plan was to renovate the current space we had, so the first job was to say goodbye to our staff room and clear EVERYTHING out.

After that, the fabulous builders with DB Dental arrived to get started!

We captured the whole journey in photographs so you can see exactly how the hallway and staff room were transformed.

Here we go!

With everything removed, the builders began to rip everything out.

Once this was complete, the wall that separated the staff room from the corridor was knocked down, to create a larger space.

The bricks and rubble were then cleared away.

Exactly one month later, it was time to say to farewell to the builders who had been brilliant throughout the whole process! Pleasant, professional, immaculate… they were a joy to have around!

Thank you to the DB Dental builders!

With just a week to go before the first patients were booked in, the painter and decorators then arrived to add the finishing touches.
