Invisalign straightens crooked teeth and corrects bite irregularities using clear plastic aligners. Unlike traditional braces with brackets and wires, Invisalign aligners can be removed, which makes brushing and flossing easy. Being clear and discreet, they are a great choice for adults – most people won’t even realise you’re wearing them!
Looking for a straighter, more beautiful smile – invisibly?
Would you like to achieve a beautiful straight smile, but you’d prefer not to compromise your appearance? Then Invisalign is the ideal option. Many adults suffering from misaligned teeth have been reluctant to undergo orthodontic treatment because of the unattractive look of old-fashioned metal braces. Thanks to Invisalign’s clear aligners, this is now no longer an issue.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign is a series of custom-moulded aligners which are precision designed using a 3D computer imaging program. Each set of aligners is replaced every few weeks with a new set, which will work to gradually move your teeth a little further. After each set of aligners has done its job, your teeth will have progressively moved into their ideal position, and you’ll have a smile you’ll be proud to display.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is easily removable, so you can eat all your favourite foods and brush and floss your teeth comfortably. And of course, because it is virtually invisible, other people won’t even notice that you are having treatment!
What does my Invisalign treatment involve?
Our practice is dedicated to ensuring your treatment progresses as planned. To do this, we ask that you visit our clinic about once every six weeks to allow us to check the alignment of your teeth. Your treatment time will depend on your personal situation, but usually takes around 9 to 15 months. After we assess your dental health, our practitioners will be able to provide you with a more accurate timeframe.
Our team are delighted to provide high-quality solutions, to help you achieve a straight smile while keeping your teeth natural-looking. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign is:
Practically invisible – with these virtually invisible ‘braces’, no one will even notice you’re having orthodontic treatment. It makes Invisalign a seamless fit with your social and professional lifestyle.
Removable – unlike fixed metal braces, with Invisalign you can eat and drink what you want, by simply removing your aligners. It also makes brushing and flossing easy, so you can have fresh breath and good oral hygiene right throughout your treatment.
Comfortable – with no metal brackets or wires, Invisalign causes less irritation to your mouth.
Predictable – If worn correctly the results are very predictable.
Are there any dental situations Invisalign cannot improve?
While Invisalign has been shown to be able to correct a wide range of dental problems, there are some conditions which may call for an alternative solution. For example, if you have many missing teeth, or a severe over- or under-bite, Invisalign may not be the right answer for you. Naturally, we will advise you on the best procedure for your needs.
Is Invisalign uncomfortable?
Compared to traditional metal braces, having your teeth straightened with Invisalign is a much more comfortable process. You may feel some slight discomfort to begin with, and for a few days each time you receive a new set of aligners. However, this is just a small sign that your teeth are actually responding to your Invisalign treatment, and slowly moving into the planned position.
