AN INVISIBLE & REMOVABLE DENTAL BRACE
A smile can change everything: Your confidence. Your outlook. Your life.
Invisalign® has revolutionised orthodontic treatment, allowing you to transform your smile discreetly and comfortably. It uses a series of virtually invisible custom-made aligners to gradually straighten your teeth without the need for metal wires or brackets.
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.
With Invisalign®, achieving the smile you always dreamed of doesn’t have to be an ordeal. The traditional route to correcting issues such as crooked teeth, gaps and crowded mouths has long been visible braces. However, Invisalign® system uses no brackets or wires - is it clear, removable and comfortable, so it won’t interfere with your appearance or your life.
Not only will Invisalign® clear dental aligners for adults straighten your teeth, they will also improve your overall dental health at the same time!
Comfort and tooth structure
Teeth and jaws that are not properly aligned can cause improper bites, which can lead to increased wear on the tooth enamel and painful trauma to the supporting bone and jaw joints. Invisalign® clear dental braces effectively address these orthodontic issues.
Improved oral health
The metal wires and brackets of traditional fixed braces often trap food, which can lead to a build up of plaque and eventually tooth decay. As Invisalign® clear dental braces are made of plastic and are removable, you can continue to brush and floss as you normally would to maintain good oral hygiene. And because straighter teeth are less susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease, investing in a straighter smile now may even minimise the need for costly dental work in the future.
Healthier teeth and gums
Crowded or widely spaced teeth can result in swollen, red gums, which is a sign of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, the gums fit securely around the teeth, allowing for a strong defence against periodontal problems. Once treatment has completed and Invisalign® clear dental braces have straightened your teeth, you may find improvements in your overall gum health.
Moving even when you’re not
As the Invisalign system discreetly does its work, life can continue as normal. Invisalign aligners are trimmed to your exact gum line so you can comfortably wear your aligners for the recommended 22 hours a day with little disruption. Even when you’re not moving, your teeth will be.
Don’t let anything get in your way
Invisalign clear aligners are removable, so you can continue to do all the things you normally do, from brushing and flossing to eating whatever you like. And because they are nearly invisible, people are more likely to notice your changing smile than the aligners themselves.
Big changes from small movements
After starting your treatment, it won’t take long until you notice a big difference in your smile. Your Invisalign aligners are custom-made with proprietary SmartTrack material. They fit snugly over your teeth and are clinically proven to improve control of movement, gently moving your teeth and even rotating them when needed.
YOUR INVISALIGN® TREATMENT JOURNEY
Your treatment journey follows 4 simples stages.
Your clinician will advise how long this is expected to take, based on your requirements.
STAGE 1 - YOUR FREE SMILE ASSESSMENT
To start your journey to a new, straighter and brighter smile, simply book your FREE appointment call 01489296123
It’s here you’ll meet with one of our Treatment Coordinators who will discuss with you your requirements. If you’re happy to continue with with the Invisalign® journey we’ll then arrange for you to meet with one of our Dentists.
STAGE 2 – MEET WITH your DENTIST
The next step is to meet with a Dentist. This appointment is charged at £50 but it’s refundable against the cost of your Invisalign® treatment.
It’s here a Dentist will a carry out a short Orthodontic Examination to ensure that you are clinically suitable and fit for treatment, should you decide to go ahead with Invisalign®. They will discuss your suitability for treatment and if necessary, recommend any pre-treatment work (for example, we may recommend that you visit the Hygienist for a thorough clean of your mouth before starting your teeth straightening).
If you’re happy to proceed, they’ll then book your treatment start date appointment.
STAGE 3 – INVISALIGN® TREATMENT START DATE
Welcome to the start of your Invisalign® treatment. Here we will gain your consent and take photographs and impressions of your teeth to mark the start of your journey.
You will then receive a state-of-the-art i-Tero 3D scan, which helps our Invisalign® technicians to create your aligners. This procedure is completely non-invasive, pain-free and takes just a few minutes.
We will then explain next steps in your Invisalign® treatment plan and work with you to establish timescales. We will also be able to confirm your treatment package cost which will include:
up to £500 off Invisalign® treatment
FREE bespoke home tooth whitening (worth £320)
retention (worth £360)
i-Tero scan and simulated treatment outcome (worth £50)
STAGE 4 – INVISALIGN® ALIGNER COLLECTION AND FITTING
Once your Invisalign® Aligners have been delivered to the Practice, we will get back in touch to arrange an appointment to fit your aligners and explain what you need to know as your teeth straightening begins.
You will be provided with a series of aligners to fit approximately every 2 weeks. You will be able to do this at home but we will arrange regular appointments during the course of treatment to check all is progressing as planned.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign treatment is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign shows you your complete treatment plan based on your dentist’s prescription, from the initial position of your teeth towards the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little.
Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the projected final position. The treatment time depends on your specific needs and will be decided by your dentist.
How much does Invisalign cost?
As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign treatment depends on the complexity of your teeth straightening issue and your course of treatment. As a general rule the cost for adults is comparable to traditional fixed braces and is typically between £2,500 and £5,500, although if only minor tooth movement is required, prices could start from £1,500. Please see our fees page.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign aligners move teeth through a series of carefully controlled movements. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign treatment not only controls the amount of movement that each aligner delivers, but also the timing of the movement. So, at each stage, only certain teeth can move, following the Invisalign treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system.
How long does the Invisalign treatment take?
The time taken depends on the complexity of the treatment and is generally comparable to that of traditional braces. During your consultation, your dentist can give you more detailed information.
How do I get started with Invisalign?
The first step is to book an appointment for a friendly initial consultation.
