One of our popular treatments is for realigning teeth and is called Invisalign.


Invisalign: what it is

Invisalign is a treatment that consists of plastic aligners. The plastic is see-through, so when they are worn, only your teeth should be seen by other people. The aligners push the teeth into the correct position over a period of time, which could take as little as 6 to 18 months. Invisalign is used to treat mild to moderate alignment issues such as overbites, underbites, crowded or gapped teeth. The aligners will need to be changed on a regular basis and you will be provided with new aligners every 6 weeks, so you don’t need to come and see us all the time!

Reasons to choose Invisalign

If Invisalign is considered an appropriate treatment for your specific needs, then there are many reasons to celebrate! Apart from being nearly invisible, Invisalign’s aligners may be removed for up to 2 hours a day, allowing you to eat and clean your teeth without them in your way. There should also be plenty of time left over to then play sports, go on a date or do the conga – the choice is yours!

Another benefit of Invisalign is the fact that the aligners are made to measure your mouth precisely. Using iTero technology, we will digitally scan your mouth to get the measurements for your aligners. We can then also generate a 3D animation of what your teeth will look like after treatment has been completed, before you even get started, so that you will have a clear vision of how your teeth will appear. It can be highly motivating for patients to know where wearing their aligners is going to take them to – having a great smile!

A further benefit of realigning your smile is not just the fact that it will look beautiful, but also that it should be easier to clean your teeth thoroughly and if you had any speech difficulties or jaw pain due to the misalignment, this should be rectified once the treatment is over.
