Invisalign – the clear alternative to braces

As more and more people are looking to achieve a perfect smile, there has been a huge increase in the number of patients looking for a more cosmetic type of brace. Invisalign is a clear aligner system that gently moves the teeth into position and being virtually invisible is very popular with a lot of our adult patients.

Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position. Comfortable, clear and removable – Invisalign transforms your smile without disrupting your life. Something that over 2.5 million people worldwide have already discovered.

Our orthodontist, Catherine McCanny has treated over 100 cases with Invisalign and has had fantastic success with this system even for more complex irregularities of the teeth. Last year one of Catherine’s Invisalign cases won an award in the Aesthetic Dentistry awards and furthermore she was awarded the Best Aesthetic Dentist, beating off competition from high end cosmetic dental practices throughout the UK. She has had several cases accepted on the International Invisalign Gallery- exhibiting only the best results from orthodontists all over the world.

This year she has been awarded Platinum status in recognition for advancing the field of orthodontics. St Michaels also hosts regular Invisalign study circle meetings whereby dentists and orthodontics from Yorkshire share their expertise. We have been delighted to have the top European speakers from Align technology attend these meetings, updating our knowledge on the significant advances of the Invisalign system.

Many patients seek treatment for cosmetic reasons, but there are also health and physiological implications of having misaligned teeth. Many patients have reported that treatment has changed their lives, boosting their self confidence and self esteem. Studies by Invisalign have shown that people with straight teeth are perceived to be happy and successful.

The multi award winning team at St Michaels pride themselves on the service they provide for their patients. ‘We put our patients at the heart of everything we do and our ethos is that we treat people the way we would like to be treated ourselves’ says Catherine.

Our Invisalign Open Evening on Wednesday 21st May is a fantastic opportunity for you to come along and meet the team and see what we can do to improve your smile.

National Smile Month @ St Michaels Orthodontics Ltd

Well where do I start! Here at St Michaels Orthodontics Ltd in Wakefield we enjoy nothing more than getting involved in events such as National Smile Month. It’s a great way to get the message about oral health out to the public, raise money for good causes and for the team to have some fun in the meantime. This year is no different; we kick off NSM with our ‘Bake a smile’ week. We will be selling cakes and goodies on reception from Monday 19th May to Friday 23rd May. Any money raised will be donated to Operation Smile who do wonderful work across the globe providing safe, effective reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.

We are also holding an Invisalign open evening to allow anyone wanting more information to come along, meet our team of experts and have a free consultation with Catherine McCanny, our Platinum Invisalign provider. In addition we will be offering discounts on treatment and free whitening after Invisalign treatment to make that smile even more perfect!

Our Orthodontic Therapist Katie and her nurse Kate have arranged a stall in our local city centre on Saturday 31st May, where they will be promoting National Smile Month by giving out free merchandise and information on oral health and orthodontics.

On Friday 6th June the walking boots will go back on and the team will be doing an 8 mile hike in Knaresborough to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

And finally …. after an event packed NSM the team will be ready for some rest, so to chill out it will be strictly PJ’s only to wear for work on Tuesday 10th June!!
