A new smile in three steps with Invisalign.
The path to straighter teeth using Invisalign couldn’t be simpler.
Have a consultation.
After your initial consultation and we confirm that Invisalign treatment is right for you, we will create your unique ClinCheck® 3D treatment plan.
Wear your aligners.
You’ll receive a series of custom-made aligners to wear every day and change at home (on average every 1 to 2 weeks). You’ll see us every 6 to 8 weeks to keep on track.
Never stop smiling.
Treatment is over and it’s time to discover the difference a new smile makes. To keep it just how you like it, you’ll take away retainers to wear at night.
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 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.
How does it 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.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible and typically hardly anyone notices that you’re wearing them.
Because the aligners are removable, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would to maintain your normal oral hygiene routine.
Unlike traditional fixed braces, there are no metal brackets or wires. This means that in most cases less time is spent in visiting us for adjustments.
And finally, the Invisalign System allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you begin treatment. You can see how your teeth are expected to look when your treatment is complete.
Is this a new way to straighten teeth?
Dentists or orthodontists have successfully used removable appliances for years. But the Invisalign System uses Align Technology’s 3D computer technology and mass-customisation to treat a wide range of patients who want straighter teeth. The ClinCheck® software allows patients to see their treatment plan from beginning to end before the start of treatment.
How much does Invisalign cost?
As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of the 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.
