We don’t charge any extra costs for emergency appointments, it is all included with the cost of your Invisalign braces when you are in the UK.
The following tips and pointers can help you resolve minor difficulties that you may face at home, but in case of any emergency do not hesitate to clear your query from us.
If you lose your Invisalign then don’t worry too much. The first thing you should do is to consult with us. If we understand that you need a new set, then we will make sure you get your new set in no time. Also remember to keep your aligners in the proper case when you take them out while brushing, eating, and drinking.
After wearing an aligner for the first time, you can feel irritated inside your cheeks or around your tongue, but your mouth will adapt to it soon and in that meantime, you also can use an ulcer gel to ease the pain. If the aligners which you are using have sharp ends and create discomfort for you then you can smooth the edges with a nail file and if you don’t want to take any risk then you can contact us to make adjustments in accordance to your need.
For the first few days after wearing a new set of aligners, you may experience toothache, so we recommend you take soft foods for the first few days. We also recommend taking pain relief pills if the pain is intolerable.
After wearing the aligner for the first time, the patient can experience sputters but within few days your tongue will get adjusted with the aligner. The more you tend to speak, they are faster your tongue will adjust with the aligner.
It is normal to experience bad breath after taking your aligners, so to avoid that you have to switch to a proper brushing schedule. Even if you are not in a position to brush your teeth on a daily basis after eating then you can try chewing gum or drinking water before putting your aligners on again.
You may experience excess saliva as a side effect when you are putting your new braces inside your mouth but there is nothing to be scared of as it goes back to normal after a few days.
You may experience difficulty wearing the aligners for the first time and also while taking them off. Don’t worry we will help you to set the aligners in the clinic, after using them for few days it will become easier for you to wear the aligners.
Don’t panic if your attachment falls off, contact us and we will arrange an immediate appointment to replace it as soon as possible if deemed necessary. In the meantime, you can continue wearing your aligners.
The most important thing about an aligner is you need to wear them at least 20 hours a day continuously, or else your treatment will be prolonged. Your teeth will start relapsing. If you don’t adapt to this habit, then you have to scan for new aligners or you may have to restart your treatment.
If the result is not satisfying enough then you shouldn’t worry about a thing. For satisfying results, we take a new scan for another aligner which is known as the ‘refinement stage’ and it is also included in the cost of Invisalign braces in the UK.
I have been with Chatfield Dental Braces for a course of treatment to straighten my teeth. I had been self-conscious about them for years and even had a course of braces when I was a kid but I removed them early because I could not get on with them. Invisalign is so different! A series of trays and that gently move the teeth into position and that can be taken out for eating and cleaning. They have done a great job on my teeth. :)
I had visited some other dentists for consultations about my crooked teeth because although I had been putting it off, I was determined to have them straightened. Chatfield Dental Braces impressed me the most and they explained the treatment very well. The trays were easy to get on with and the treatment has given me my confidence back. I am very pleased.
For many years I had wanted to have my teeth straightened but I just could not face the thought of braces in my mouth. Then I heard about Invisalign and asked my dentist at Chatfield Dental Braces. I was delighted with the fact that the braces cannot be seen and can be removed for eating and cleaning. I am in the middle of the course now and I am already impressed with the result.
I have just finished my Invisalign course with Chatfield Dental Braces. I loved the fact that the braces were invisible and no one at work noticed I was wearing them. It was also very good to be able to take them out for cleaning and eating and for my wedding!
The staffs are very helpful and professional. I was suffering from a severe toothache and then my relative suggested me to visit this dental clinic and now my oral health is completely back to normal. This clinic is highly recommended by me.
