    What are Invisalign braces?

    The convenience and ease of use of the Invisalign system have made it the choice of over half a million people. In fact, Invisalign has been effective in giving hundreds of thousands of people amazing new smiles.

    What are the benefits of Invisalign? 

    • Invisalign offers the patient a series of clear, removable aligners which are changed every 2-3 weeks
    • There is no tightening to be done, no changing of wires and no elastic bands to get in the way
    • All of the adjustments are made with one new aligner every few weeks  
    • Since the aligners are clear they are hardly visible in the mouth at all and will fit perfectly against your teeth
    • As each aligner is individually moulded to specifically fit each patient, Invisalign clear aligners can be much more comfortable than conventional braces.

      Invisalign programme

      Invisalign offers the complete cosmetic orthodontic programme. We will begin with the most important part of straightening your teeth with the series of Invisalign aligners. After this stage has been completed, we will whiten your teeth (if required), followed by any recontouring (if required) to truly give you that perfect smile!

      You will then have the choice of having removable or bonded (our preferred choice) retainers to help maintain your new smile. This is already included in your treatment plan. We recommend Invisalign Vivera removable retainers however bonded retainers can be requested at an additional cost. They are discretely hidden on the backs of your teeth, which is great for vanity and aesthetic reasons, and it also means there isn’t any chance of taking out your retainers to eat and breaking them (which can be common with removable retainers).

        How long do treatments take?

        The time needed for Invisalign to work its magic will depend on the severity of the patients case. This means that cost will also vary from patient to patient as some people will need many aligners and others will require just a few.

            Hidden braces

            Lingual braces sit on the inside surface of your teeth. They're often called hidden braces, because their positioning means you can't see them from the outside.

              What other benefits does teeth straightening offer?

              Orthodontic treatment improves chewing efficiency by re-establishing the correct relationship between lower and upper teeth, removing the difficulty you may have when chewing certain kinds of food, and so providing better nutrition. 

              In some cases, orthodontics can also prevent complications in the temporomandibular joint (the joint which joins the jaw to the skull). Chronic pain in the head, face, neck or ears, as well as dizziness, nausea and restricted ability to open and close the mouth can originate here.



              What can be treated?

              Orthodontic treatments have evolved enormously over the last 20 years. Now problems such as gaps between the teeth, crowded teeth, overbite (upper teeth covering the majority of the lower ones), open bite (upper and lower teeth almost don’t touch) and cross bites can all be treated.
