There is a solution to having straighter teeth without having to wear metal braces. Known as invisible orthodontics, this type of treatment offers you the choice of wearing a clear and sometimes removable appliance while straightening and aligning your teeth.
This is often a favourable option for adults who have professional careers and don't feel comfortable wearing unsightly 'train track' braces for months on end. The technology behind invisible orthodontics is highly advanced and often gives patients a much shorter treatment time, depending on their individual cases.
Benefits of this type of treatment include having teeth straightened in a generally shortened period of time, straighter teeth and alignment of your top and bottom jaws. You can also enjoy the flexibility of your braces being hidden from an untrained eye, making you feel less self-conscious when socialising or speaking in public. With removable devices you can also take them out to eat or for special occasions, so they fit around your lifestyle.
It is important to remember that straighter teeth are healthier teeth. When your bite is properly aligned and your teeth are straightened, there are less gaps and areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth, causing decay. In that sense, invisible orthodontics is a long-term investment in your oral health.
4 steps to your new smile.
We will take you through the Case Assessment, which is a simple set of photos to determine whether you are suitable for Invisalign treatment.
If treatment is right for you, we’ll take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth. Then we’ll create you a digital treatment plan, using our state of the art technology, showing you what your results could look like via a 3D video.
We’ll give you a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks (as directed by your Dentist). You can comfortably wear your aligners for 22 hours a day (the recommended daily wear). And because they’re removable, it’s easy to maintain your normal oral hygiene routine and enjoy your usual diet.
We’ll invite you back to the practice around every 4-6 weeks to monitor progress and hand over your new aligners. At the end of your treatment, you will need to wear your retainers to maintain your new smile.

How is Invisalign treatment different from other teeth-straightening options?Unlike braces, Invisalign clear aligners are removable and virtually invisible. There are no wires and brackets, so you do not need to change the way you brush and floss. As well as this, you can continue to eat all your favourite foods. Furthermore, Invisalign clear aligners are made from SmartTrack™ material. This advanced technology helps move your teeth more predictably, which helps you to get the smile you want up to 50% faster than any other clear aligners.
Can I take my aligners off ?Yes, you can remove your aligners for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. However, remember to wear them 20 to 22 hours a day to get the best results.
Is the treatment painful?You may feel some discomfort for the first few days after wearing a new set of aligners. This is normal and is usually described as a feeling of slight pressure. This is a sign that the Invisalign aligners are working and are transforming your smile.
What’s the best way to clean my aligners?The best way to clean your aligners is by brushing them and rinsing them with warm water. We can also recommend you cleaning tablets for your aligners. It is also very important to brush your teeth after each meal before re-inserting your aligners to maintain good oral hygiene and prevent your aligners from staining.
