Invisalign

This is an outstanding way to straighten teeth without having to wear traditional metal braces. The invisible aligners used are removable, comfortable and highly effective. Clear aligners which can be removed when eating and cleaning.


One of the main concerns for adults that may put them off seeking orthodontic treatment is the thought of obvious braces having an impact on their work and social life. Invisalign offers a fantastic alternative for straightening teeth that is very discreet; in fact, many patients report that others were not even aware they were wearing clear aligners.


The Invisalign system involves the creation of a series of thin, custom-made clear aligners that fit over your teeth like an unobtrusive mouth guard, gradually moving them into place. You will need to visit our orthodontist every few weeks so that they can assess your progress and issue your new aligner, so your straightening and alignment can continue until you have the smile you have always wanted.

One of the great things about the Invisalign system is that the trays are removable so patients can take them out for cleaning and eating. It is recommended that the aligners are worn for around 22 hours each day to get the best result.

If you are considering teeth straightening treatment and would like to know if you are suitable for Invisalign, our specialist Invisalign orthodontist can carry out a full assessment of your teeth and bite, answering any questions you may have, before making an overall treatment recommendation. We use the latest technology for Invisalign treatment - the Itero Scanner
