For years 'teeth straightening' has been seen as a treatment only carried out on teenagers. Now with the latest technology, adults too can benefit from wearing a brace but without all the hang-ups of years gone by.
Invisalign® uses a pair of transparent aligners which are moulded to the exact shape of your teeth using 3D computer imaging. These aligners are so comfortable to wear that you will soon forget that they are there - they are also invisible when worn and so there is none of the embarrassment that comes with wearing large metal braces.

Invisalign braces have revolutionised orthodontic treatment by using a series of custom-made, transparent aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Made from smooth, clinical-grade plastic, these aligners are virtually invisible, making them a great, discreet alternative to traditional braces.
The process begins with a 3D digital scan or impressions of your teeth which allows us to create a personalised treatment plan. Your aligners are then made at a specialist laboratory before return to us at the practice. We then invite you back for your first fitting session.
Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, applying gentle pressure to specific teeth to create gradual movement. As you progress through the series, your teeth gradually move into the desired positions. We provide regular check-ups to monitor progress and adjust your treatment plan if needed. Invisalign offers a comfortable, aesthetically pleasing option for achieving a straighter smile without the embarrassment of traditional braces!
Wearing Invisalign braces is typically associated with minimal discomfort when compared to traditional braces. The aligners tend to cause less irritation to the cheeks and gums although you may experience mild pressure or soreness when switching to a new set of aligners, typically every one to two weeks.
This discomfort is temporary and actually indicates that the aligners are effectively moving your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign does not use metal wires and brackets, reducing the likelihood of painful sores or cuts. If you do experience any discomfort, you can try your usual over-the-counter pain relief whilst always keeping to our orthodontist's guidance.
While some sensitivity is normal, the overall opinion is that Invisalign is one of the most comfortable teeth-straightening options available.
Invisalign treatment time varies based on your individual needs. On average, the process typically spans 12 to 18 months, though some cases may require a shorter or longer timeframe.
You will typically need to wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, progressing through the series as your teeth adjust. Regular check-ups with our dentists occur every 6-8 weeks to monitor your progress and to receive new aligners. Factors such as the complexity of misalignment and how well you are able to wear your aligners will affect how long the treatment takes.
We will be able to advise you about the expected length of treatment for your own particular case at your consultation.
The cost of Invisalign teeth straightening varies based on a range of factors, particularly the severity of your teeth misalignment and the individual treatment plan required.
We will be able to provide a clear indication of the price for you when you attend for your consultation but to see an indicative price, please see our website Fees page.
We also offer flexible payment plans to make Invisalign treatment more accessible. Please ask your dentist or our reception team for more information and to book your personalised consultation.
The aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing your teeth, but otherwise are worn continuously. Every fortnight the aligners are replaced by the next pair in the series so that your teeth are slowly moving and straightening without pain or discomfort.
The use of aligners exerts a controlled force on the teeth: at different stages in the process, only certain teeth will be allowed to move. Thus the whole process is gradual, controlled and painless.
From January we will be offering Adult and Children's Fixed Orthodontics (Braces)
