InvisalignTM is the most widely spread brand of private orthodontic treatment and is very popular with our patients due to not requiring any brackets and wires. It’s also very popular with adult patients who have previously had braces but noticed tooth movement due to lack of retention. We start by taking an impression of your mouth, then your orthodontist will use special computer software to manipulate your teeth into the desired place on a 3D model. This information is then sent to the lab that produces a series of specially designed trays/aligners (and in some cases tooth attachments).
InvisalignTM works by progressively applying pressure to the teeth throughout each day until your orthodontist is happy with the final result. The trays are almost completely invisible and worn for 2 weeks at a time before swapping to the next one in your treatment plan. An average treatment length is approximately 12 months but this will vary on your individual treatment need. Not everyone is suitable for InvisalignTM so contact us to arrange a consultation with one of our orthodontists and we can guide you through your options.
