Invisalign

Orthodontics have come a long way in recent years, with traditional train track braces being replaced by clear aligners that can move teeth faster and improve aesthetics as a cosmetic smile makeover.
We offer Invisalign because it offers impressive, fast results and is easy for patients to manage. We have helped many patients gain the smile they’ve always wanted in a safe and manageable way.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a type of clear aligner – it does the job of braces but without the need for obvious metal covering the teeth. The retainers are transparent and allow you to move your teeth without people noticing.
The aligners can be used on one or both sets of teeth, and can be removed for meals. A new set of aligners is needed every few weeks, so you’re given a set at each appointment to use until your next appointment.


How can Invisalign improve your appearance?

Invisalign is used for smile makeovers. We can close gaps, alter crooked smiles, move teeth that are out of place, straighten teeth and generally create a more aesthetically pleasing smile.


Where is Invisalign most effective?

This treatment is for the teeth/mouth.
What happens during Invisalign treatment?
An assessment is given to make sure you’re suitable for Invisalign treatment. Once your oral health is approved we can start creating your new smile. A scan is taken before a step by step video is created showing how your smile will change.

Moulds are taken before your aligners are ready to be collected. You need to wear them for a minimum of 22 hours a day – you sleep in them and wear them all day, except for meals. A new aligner is provided every 2-3 weeks on average and your teeth will move into their new positions.


What are the benefits of Invisalign?

Patients like Invisalign because the aligners are subtle meaning people can hardly see them, and they can be removed for eating. The results are faster than normal braces and you need less trips to see a dentist.


Is treatment with Invisalign painful?

While Invisalign isn’t painful there can be some discomfort when new aligners are placed. This usually subsides in a few hours but any discomfort can be reduced with basic pain relief.

What is the recovery from this treatment like?

There is no recovery, but you do need to be invested in your treatment and make sure you wear the trays as directed. You’ll also need to wear a retainer after the treatment is complete, and your dental expert will talk through how to care for your new smile.


How long is Invisalign treatment?

This depends on what you wish to change. For some patients, tiny changes only require a few months. For larger changes, like moving teeth or closing gaps, the treatment can take longer. On average patients require Invisalign for 6 to 18 months.
