We provide Invisalign clear braces treatments. Invisalign is the most popular orthodontic treatment thanks to the clear aligners being practically invisible and the hassle free experience. To start patients attend a free smile assessment appointment, we take digital impressions using an i-Tero scanner which enables you to preview your new smile on screen. If you choose to start with your treatment we will take X-rays and prepare for your treatment plan. Your aligners are manufactured and ready to be fitted 2 weeks later.
More than 6 million patients have now completed treatment and there is huge demand for invisible orthodontics worldwide. This is because patients can choose if they want to tell people they are having orthodontic treatment or to keep quiet about it, and the majority of patients report that no one noticed.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile contact us and you can try on your new smile and see your smile makeover simulated from start to finish. Most of our patients wish they had started their treatment earlier and not delayed their choice of when to start. In today’s age of social media, Instagram and selfies, many people wish they had perfectly straight teeth and – Invisalign gives you a stunning smile and allows you to smile right the way through your treatment.
Clear aligners are practically invisible, smooth and comfortable to wear which means they are less painful or uncomfortable than traditional orthodontics. The aligners are removable which means you can still enjoy your favourite meals and drinks, unlike metal braces which come with many restrictions. They are easy to clean and because they are removable you can brush your teeth in the usual way, unlike metal braces which take a long time to clean.
The method provides a virtually invisible treatment to straighten your smile. With the use of 3D technology, we can show you your smile from start to finish. Starting from today to the final positions for your teeth. A sequence of aligners will be custom made for you which will move your teeth to their desired positions gradually, week by week. You will change to the next aligner in the sequence every 2 weeks. The duration of your treatment will be based on your individual requirements. We will advise on your treatment length at your smile assessment appointment.
Teeth are gradually rotated and re-positioned through a sequence of controlled movements. Clear aligners move teeth with precision in terms of the amount of rotation and the timing of each rotation. This means that at each stage, only certain teeth will be moved as per the treatment plan for each phase. This means that treatment is very comfortable and efficient.
You can enjoy all your favourite foods and drinks as you can remove your aligners. You will need to remove your clear braces for every meal, snack or drink, apart from cold water. Aligners are not designed to be worn when chewing or biting as the aligners are delicate and not intended for this purpose. After eating you would clean your teeth, flossing once per day and insert your aligners. This will protect your aligners and maintain effective oral hygiene habits. You should also clean your aligners on a daily basis.
Wear time which is recommended by Align Tech, the manufacturers, is 22 hours per day as a minimum. Please note that it is not possible to shorten your daily wear time and extend your treatment duration as this will lead to sub-optimal results.
Treatment can be paid upfront or in monthly instalments. We are able to provide treatment for under £30 a week with our financing plans.
