Have you ever dreamt of having a perfectly straight smile without the hassle of dealing with brackets and wires? If so, we have the perfect orthodontic treatment for you. With Invisalign, we can straighten your teeth without a wire in sight.

About Invisalign

Invisalign is an invisible brace system, which uses removable, transparent aligners to reposition the teeth. The aligners are made from high-grade plastic, and they are streamlined and sleek.

There are no metal parts, no brackets and no wires, and the best thing is that your braces will be virtually undetectable when you smile.

Invisalign is different to most other orthodontic systems because it uses a series of aligners, rather than a single brace. Each patient is provided with a set of bespoke aligners, which are all slightly different. Treatment is planned in advance using advanced software, and the braces generate forces, which guide the teeth into position. Each aligner remains in place for 2 weeks and then you swap the brace with the next appliance in the series. Invisalign braces are removable, but ideally, they should be worn for around 22 hours per day to get the best results.

Virtually Straight Teeth: The Technology Behind Invisalign

Invisalign is one of the world’s most popular orthodontic systems, and it’s not hard to see why. This virtually invisible treatment is ideal for those who want straight teeth without the hassle or worry of wearing detectable braces. If you like the sound of secret treatment, here’s some more information about the technology behind Invisalign.

What exactly is Invisalign and how does it work?

Invisalign is a clear brace system, which offers an alternative to visible fixed braces. With Invisalign, you don’t have a brace fitted to your teeth. Instead, you wear a series of custom-made, transparent aligners. The number of aligners differs according to how much movement is required, and each aligner is in place for 2 weeks. You take the aligners out to eat, drink and clean your teeth. Invisalign treatment is planned in advance. Before you begin treatment, your dentist will take pictures and X-rays and these will be used to predict the movement of the teeth. The aligners are fabricated based on your unique prescription and treatment plan. Each brace is slightly different to allow room for movement.

What are the benefits of Invisalign treatment?

For many people, the main draw of Invisalign is the transparency of the braces, which makes them virtually undetectable. However, there are additional advantages. It’s very convenient to be able to take your braces out, as this means that you don’t have to adapt the way you eat or brush your teeth. It’s also better for your oral health, as you can clean your braces easily, and brush normally. Invisalign braces use gentle forces to reposition the teeth, and the braces don’t contain any metal parts, so you should find them very comfortable to wear.

The Facts About Clear Braces

If you’ve ever wanted orthodontic treatment but been put off by the look of braces, we may have the perfect solution for you. In recent years, clear braces have become incredibly popular, as more and more people choose discreet orthodontic solutions to give them a beautiful, straight smile. One of our most popular treatments is Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative modern alternative to traditional fixed braces. Rather than using braces, which are made up of brackets and wires, to move the teeth, Invisalign uses a series of bespoke clear plastic aligners. The aligners are very light and they are almost invisible to other people. They are also removable and they should be taken out to eat, drink and clean the teeth.

These incredible aligners are created according to a personalised treatment plan. Each aligner is different and you must wear them in a set series. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and then replaced with the next aligner until the series is complete.

Why would I consider clear braces?

Clear braces have an obvious benefit over traditional fixed braces – they are invisible when you smile. This means that you don’t have to worry about how your looks will change during the treatment process or what other people may think about your braces. Braces are not the most attractive appliances and they are not considered very fashionable, so discreet braces are a great option for those who are image-conscious.

Invisalign also has a host of other benefits. The aligners are light and comfortable and they do not contain any metal. They are also removable, which gives you more flexibility and the treatment is planned in advance, which means you have an idea of what your smile will look like before you even start treatment.

Invisalign Straightens Teeth Without Wires or Brackets!

The Invisalign system is one of the main innovations of modern orthodontics, providing effective tooth straightening invisibly.

In the past patients from Central London and throughout the UK had to suffer the stigma and discomfort of fixed brackets and wires, which instantly drew attention to their mouth and teeth. Thankfully, today we have clear aligners, such as those used during the Invisalign treatment. These are used to straighten teeth, creating beautiful, straight smiles without the embarrassment of metal attachments.

How does Invisalign work?

The Invisalign system involves the use of several clear aligners (generally between 18-30), which are replaced every two weeks with a new and differently aligned clear aligner. This graduation from one aligner shape to the next gradually moves the teeth into their new position, without the need for wires or brackets.

How are Invisalign aligners made?

First, impressions and images will be taken of your teeth and these will be sent to the Invisalign laboratories. There, they not only make your set of personalised aligners, but also show you how your teeth will look after your treatment is complete, which your dentist will show you using the Clin-Check system.

How long does Invisalign take to straighten my teeth?

Invisalign can be used to treat a range of orthodontic conditions, including crooked teeth, gapped teeth, twisted teeth and overbites and generally the time it takes to straighten your teeth will vary between 9-24 months, depending on the severity of your orthodontic condition.

The length of your treatment will be discussed during your consultation.

What are the main benefits of Invisalign?

  • Treatment is completely invisible and no one will see that you are having your teeth straightened.
  • The aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat and clean your teeth, ensuring that your oral health is kept at its very best.
  • As there are no wires or attachment and due to the lower forces used with Invisalign you will not experience the soreness, ulcers and discomfort most fixed brace wearing encounter.
