    Virtually invisible

    Invisalign's sequence of clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible.

    With this close up, you can see how the aligners fit snugly to the teeth.

    Only to be removed for eating and cleaning, the aligners are comfortable to wear and easy to speak with while wearing them.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic system using a set of clear aligners that gradually move and straighten your teeth from their current position. The process is simulated beforehand so you can see exactly how your teeth will look before you begin and we can even make modifications or changes to give you the smile you want.

Invisalign is great for adults wanting to improve their smile without the appearance of traditional braces but we can also provide Invisalign for teens too.

The advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces include:

  • Clear and virtually invisible
  • Removable for eating and cleaning your teeth
  • Ability to view your treatment and end result prior to beginning
  • 6-8 weeks between review appointments

What is the process?

After a thorough discussion with your dentist regarding your current concerns and what you would like to achieve, they will be able to assess your teeth and advise whether your teeth are suitable for Invisalign treatment.

If you wish to go ahead, your dentist will take impressions, x-rays and photos and send them off to an Invisalign laboratory who will then send back a simulation of your treatment. This simulation will show step by step what will be required to transform your teeth, how many aligners will be necessary and how long the treatment will take. It is at this point that you and your dentist can make modifications and changes if necessary to the treatment. Once we approve treatment, your aligners will be manufactured and sent to the surgery.

Once we receive your aligners, we will make a series of appointments to give you aligners, cover any instructions and to monitor your treatment. At the end of your treatment, you will be given retainers to maintain the position of your teeth.

Could it really work for me?

Yes it could…you’ll never know if you never ask! Your dentist will be able to assess and advise whether Invisalign is right for you.
