  • FAQs
    • Are Invisalign custom made?

      All Invisalign products are custom made as we will conduct an advanced 3D image of your teeth so we can plan your treatment accordingly.

    • Does Invisalign hurt?

      The stigma of braces being painful when they are first installed is true. However, traditional braces have always been reported to be uncomfortable throughout the treatment duration. Because of their fixed nature, they relentlessly pull and tug into position through force and wires. Also as the brackets are bulky they rub on the inside of your lip. With Invisalign in Grantham, you’ll receive a series of smooth, thin, aligners which are custom made for your teeth. These aligners vary very slightly from each other, allowing your teeth to be guided into the right positions through softer pressure. Not only this, but they’re made of a smooth and durable plastic that won’t harm the soft tissues in your mouth.

    • Are there any health benefits of Invisalign?

      Invisalign in Grantham can help protect you against cavities by straightening and aligning crowded teeth and irregular alignment in the mouth. Having overlapping teeth make way for the perfect folds and nooks for plaque and bacteria to build up and hide in. Shelter for bacteria and plaque is a huge cavity risk, so crooked teeth which are harder to clean could lead to decay and enamel erosion. Invisalign braces help straighten your teeth to create a more even surface area which help provide a straighter smile and creates a surface area that is far easier to clean.
