Concerned about gum disease? We’ll offer you advice on preventative care and the best gum infection treatment options should you need them.
At Complete Smiles, you’ll be as comfortable and informed as possible throughout any treatment we give you.
You may be suffering from gum disease if your gums are red and swollen. Symptoms of gum disease include bleeding gums, swollen gums and bad breath.
Most people suffer from some form of gum disease, and it is the main cause of tooth loss in adults. However, the disease grows gradually in most people, and it can be reduced to a rate that should allow you to keep most of your teeth for life.
Gum disease is triggered by plaque. Plaque is a layer of bacteria, which forms on the surface of the teeth and gums. Many of the bacteria in plaque are harmless, but there are some that are known to be the main cause of gum disease.
To avoid and treat gum disease, you need to make sure you remove the plaque from your teeth every day. This is done by brushing and flossing thoroughly. To learn more about the ways to brush, see the videos below.
For more information regarding gum disease treatment give us a call, 020 4541 1150 and we will be more than happy to assist you in any way.
The four steps for transforming your smile
We will discuss the way you feel about your smile. We can show you how your smile will look at the end of the treatment.
At the same time, we will assess your oral health to make sure it is the best it can be before safely starting Invisalign treatment.
Start wearing aligners
As you progress from one set of bespoke aligners to another, you will be able to see your teeth becoming progressively straighter.
Your new smile
It is a proud day when the treatment finishes with a beautiful, new smile that will last forever with the right care.
Invisalign created a product with the least disruption to your dental routine in mind, but it is important you follow your oral hygiene regimen. Moreover, as the Invisalign system is removable, you can continue to brush and floss your teeth with products that work for your dental health. Brushing your aligners with non-abrasive toothpaste will keep them clean and fresh.
Take them out for eating and brushing or for important business meetings. (Most patients keep them in anyway because the aligners are “invisible”.)
No one needs to know you are having treatment.
Change the aligners once a week – or once a fortnight.
Each set moves your teeth towards their final position.
Invisalign make a series of bespoke aligners that are just right for your teeth and gums.
An Invisalign patient typically stops covering their mouths when they laugh and starts proudly showing off their beautiful smile.
During your Invisalign treatment you’ll see big changes from small movements in just a matter of weeks. Invisalign can solve all sorts of misalignments in your teeth and because the aligners are virtually invisible, results are the only thing you and others will see.
Invisalign straightens and aligns teeth without fixed metal braces. You can remove them whenever you want, they’re practically invisible, and you will start to see results within a few months.Read More

Invisalign relies on a series of custom-designed, transparent, soft plastic aligners that have a gentle, controllable grip on your teeth to move them in place. You apply new aligners every two weeks until the treatment is complete, and you have a healthy and beautiful smile.
You should wear your guides for at least 22 hours a day, only taking them out to eat and brush your teeth.
As with any dental treatment, it takes a few days to get used to having something in your mouth. Many patients say that they do not see any change in their speech, while others have noticed minor discomfort for the first few days. Your speech will return to normal once you get used to it.
Each new set of Invisalign aligners can make your teeth feel tender, to begin with. The good news is this shows the treatment is working, and you are on your way to straight teeth.
Yes but be sure to remove your aligners first. If you chew gum with your aligners on, it will stick to your aligners and cause pain.
Not recommended because nicotine can contaminate aligners. Having yellow plastic in your mouth nullifies the benefits of invisible treatment.
Keeping your aligners clean is quite easy. You will just brush them with toothpaste and rinse them with warm water.
You will visit us every six weeks. You do not need modifications while wearing Invisalign but we will need to make sure your treatment is improving as it should.
Yes. Whether you have a brace or Invisalign, the only way to maintain your results is to wear a retainer. In fact, it won't be much different than wearing your aligners, and eventually, you'll only need to use them at night.
The duration of Invisalign varies depending on how serious your case is. On average it could range from 6 – 12 Months. Our Dentists will be able to give you a good idea of how long it will take during your free consultation.
The only way to determine if Invisalign will work for you is to book a free consultation with a Dentist from Complete Smiles. We will Assess your teeth and advise on the correct treatment accordingly.
