Invisible Braces from Invisalign

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign Clear BraceInvisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. A series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for 1-2 weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the projected final position.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible. No one may even notice that you’re wearing these virtually invisible aligners, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. Invisalign aligners are removable giving you the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and to maintain good oral hygiene. Unlike traditional fixed braces, there are no metal brackets or wires.

How long does the Invisalign treatment take?
The total duration of treatment depends on the complexity of the treatment and is generally comparable to that of traditional braces. Typically treatment can last between 3 and 18 months.

How often must I see my dentist once I have started treatment?
Appointment intervals are generally the same as with traditional braces but can be much quicker with less time spent in the dentists’ chair during appointments as no adjustments need to be made to wires/brackets. Patients typically visit the dentist every 4 to 6 weeks to ensure the treatment is progressing as planned, and to receive their next few sets of Invisalign aligners, but your dentist will decide based on your treatment

How much does the treatment cost?
The treatment costs £2800 for both arches, and this includes your all of your impressions and dental visits, as well as the invisible braces themselves. If you would like to book a free consultation, please contact the surgery on 0208 300 8255.
