The Clear Alternative To Braces
This is an extremely popular brace system, originally from the USA. Sometimes known as invisible braces, these clear aligners gently move the teeth into their desired position. Unlike standard braces, Invisalign is removable, meaning you can take it out to eat, drink and clean your teeth. It is also virtually undetectable, which is what makes it so popular with adult and teenage patients who don’t want their treatment to be obvious to others.
Using 3-D computer aided technology we digitally create a mock-up of your teeth and align them to prescription. Once you and your dentist are happy with the final result we’ve a set of bespoke clear aligners manufactured, just for you.
What happens during treatment?
Invisalign works by creating a digital copy of your teeth and virtually straightening them, during the initial phase of treatment. These movements are transferred to clear plastic trays, or aligners, which slowly move your teeth over the next weeks and months.
Each tray is used for 2 weeks and worn all day and night, except when eating and brushing your teeth. Average users wear each aligner approximately 18-20 hours a day. The length of treatment with Invisalign is determined by the complexity of each case and can range from 2-3 months to 18 months.
The really striking benefit of Invisalign is the fact you can straighten your teeth with virtually invisible braces and many of our patients tell us friends and family don’t even know they’re having treatment!
The cost also varies with complexity our prices can be found in the fees page, however it’s best to come in and chat to one of our dentists about your treatment and costs.
