When was the last time you saw a celebrity wearing braces?
For almost thirty years, select orthodontists have used Invisalign to give people perfect smiles—without braces!
What Is Invisalign?
The Invisalign treatment programme is a very gradual process that uses transparent ‘aligners’ that are hand-crafted to fit over your teeth perfectly. They are soft, comfortable and barely visible. The aligners can also be easily removed, so you can eat and drink as normal, and they are very easy to clean. Many of our patients tell us that after a few days they don’t even notice they are wearing them!
Why Invisalign over braces?
- Virtually invisible: no worry about your looks!
- Take them off whenever you need: no special toothbrushes, no stuck food!
- No wires or metal to adjust: like disposable contacts, every week, simply throw away the old aligners and put on the new ones!
Why do people love Invisalign?
- No worries about wedding photos, senior pictures, or ever having to worry about smiling in a picture!
- Do more: easy to play musical instruments, sing, perform, and more!
- No emergencies: each aligner is custom-formed thermoplastic that you can take off at any time. Never worry about accidents and emergency visits!
- Fewer appointments
- No Food Limitations
- You can watch your progress and see end result on Invisalign site

How Does Invisalign Work?
To begin your Invisalign treatment, your dentist will examine your teeth and mouth and create an impression that will then be used to create your aligners. You will be able to see how your new smile will look using the innovative ‘ClinCheck 3D treatment plan’.
During the course of your treatment, you will be fitted with several aligners, each slightly different to the last, which will need to be changed at a rate of roughly once every two weeks. Your dentist will keep an eye on how your treatment is progressing with regular appointments. At the end of your treatment plan, you will need to wear retainers to prevent your teeth from moving back to a less optimal position.
What Issues Can Be Fixed With Invisalign?
• Crowded and crooked teeth
• Gaps between the teeth
• Overbite — where the upper teeth excessively overlap the lower teeth
• Underbite — where the lower teeth stick out past the front teeth
• Open bite — where the upper and lower teeth are forced outwards, not meeting each other
• Crossbite — where the upper teeth bite on the inside of your the lower teeth
Will Invisalign Work For Me?
Your dentist may recommend the Invisalign treatment programme for you if you have crowded teeth, gapped teeth or an overbite, and if you are an older teenager or adult. The system must be kept in place for 22 hours a day or longer and so you must be willing and able to accept this as the most effective way of achieving the smile you want. You can usually use the Invisalign system even if you have pre-existing treatments in place such as crowns or bridges, or if you have a TMJ/TMD condition, but if your dentist decides – upon examining your mouth – that this system is unsuitable for any reason then they will be able to recommend a suitable alternative form of teeth-straightening treatment.
How Long Does Invisalign Take?
This is a comfortable, convenient, gradual process that will take several weeks or months to achieve the final result: a straighter, more even smile.
