ADULT ORTHODONTICS WITH

INVISALIGN

Noticeably Straighter Teeth In As Little as 3 Months

Invisalign clear braces is a revolutionary teeth straightening system made of nearly invisible and removable aligners to correct problems not suitable for treatment with the Inman Aligner system.

Invisalign is ideal for the treatment of overcrowded or widely spaced teeth, crossbites, gapped teeth, overbites, open bites and underbites. The aligners fit snugly over your teeth and are clinically proven to control tooth movement- gently moving and even rotating teeth when needed.

Every weeks you are given a new set of custom made aligners designed to gradually move your teeth- little by little- into their desired position.

Your Gentle Dental dentist will talk you through all the procedures available to help you decide which is best for you and your specific circumstances.

How Invisalign works

Before we even begin treatment, the Invisalign System allows us to digitally map and preview your new smile. This allows us to create a more precise, personalised treatment designed specifically for you- including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will take.

Once you begin your treatment, we will create your clear aligners made from our SmartTrack material which moves your teeth comfortably and efficiently whilst giving a more than 75% improvement in tooth movement predictability.

Faster, Better Results

Depending on how much movement is needed and your particular requirements, you may be suitable to change your aligners every week. This means you could achieve your winning smile in as little as 3 months- that’s up to 50% faster than standard treatment.

FOUR STEPS FORWARD, NO STEPS BACK

THE PROCESS

STEP 1

Once we have confirmed that you are eligible for treatment, we will take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth. These records will be used to create a ClinCheck 3D treatment plan, just for you.

STEP 2

After being custom-made and shipped to our practice, we will send you a series of aligners which you will wear every day.
You can change these by yourself at home every week.

STEP 3

We will let you know how often you will need to visit us but it will be roughly around every 6-8 weeks. At these visits we will monitor progress and will give you your new aligners.

STEP 4

After finishing your treatment plan, we will make custom fit retainers which you will need to wear regularly to keep your new smile straight.

FAQS ABOUT INVISALIGN

How does Invisalign work?

By using a series of progressive, yet gentle, clear removable aligners, Invisalign slowly realigns and straightens your teeth without ugly wires and/or brackets. The nearly invisible aligners are also removable so you can eat in comfort and brush and floss normally. Your dentist will give you a clearly defined virtual treatment plan that will outline what you can expect- from start to finish!

How much does Invisalign cost?

The cost, like any orthodontic treatment, can vary depending on the complexity of your individual needs. However, as a general rule the price for adults is comparable to traditional braces but can be much less depending on requirements. Your dentist will take the time to discuss the best, and most affordable treatment for you.

How do I know if Invisalign is right for me?

When most people think of teeth straightening they conjure up an image of the old, painful metal braces. But times have certainly changed!

Invisalign is perfect for most everyone and it fits seamlessly into even the busiest of routines- without fuss or embarrassment. Because there are no metal wires or brackets you don’t have to worry about cuts or abrasions and you can take them out easily for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. In fact, you can take them out at any time you might feel necessary.
