One of the main drawbacks of traditional fixed braces is their visibility. Invisalign® uses a series of clear aligners that are custom-molded to fit your teeth. The virtually invisible aligners reposition your teeth into a smile you’ll be proud of.
The convenience of the Invisalign® system have made it the choice of over three million people who now smile with confidence.
Invisalign® uses 3-D computer imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position from which a series of custom-made ‘aligners’ are produced. Each aligner moves teeth incrementally and is worn for about two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.
What’s more, a virtual 3D treatment plan (ClinCheck©) shows the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of treatment. This allows you to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the treatment. From the results of the ClinCheck© treatment plan, your custom-made, clear aligners are produced especially for you.
We are delighted to offer the latest intraoral scanning technology. The iTero scanner is used at the start of Invisalign treatment to capture images of your teeth. Using a small wand, we scan your teeth to create a 3D digital model. This digital model is used to plan your treatment, allowing us to see your Invisalign journey on screen step-by-step.
One of the most exciting features of the iTero scanner is its ability to show you how your teeth could look following treatment. It’s a great way for you to see your new smile before treatment. The digital scan provides greater precision, resulting in aligners that fit your teeth perfectly.
Your child’s teenage years can be hard enough without the added burden of being worried about their smile. Problems with their teeth can make children and teenagers incredibly self-conscious, and can even start to affect their confidence and self-esteem.
Invisalign® offers a range of treatment options for teenagers. The great benefit of Invisalign® is that it provides an aesthetic, more flexible way to give teenagers the confidence of a great smile.
Invisalign® aligners are comfortable, removable and nearly invisible, which means teenagers can carry on enjoying life without the restrictions, irritation and self-consciousness often associated with metal brackets and wires. Invisalign® aligners are also removable, so teenagers can continue brushing and flossing normally.

Upon accepting the treatment plan we take accurate impressions of your teeth and detailed photographs of your face, profile and smile. This is sent to Invisalign® who create a 3D image using 3D scanning technology in order to produce a detailed analysis of the number of aligners required to straighten your teeth
After a few weeks your entire sequence of aligners are ready to collect and full instructions on usage and maintenance are provided for you. Each aligner gently guides your teeth into the correct position and is worn for two weeks, before moving to the next aligner in sequence and usually lasts 9-12 months. Your dentist will monitor your treatment progress approximately every six weeks.
