Invisalign

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign treatment is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign shows you your complete treatment plan based on your Invisalign Provider’s prescription, from the initial position of your teeth towards the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little.

Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the projected final position. The treatment time depends on your specific needs and will be decided by your Invisalign Provider.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign aligners move teeth through a series of carefully controlled movements. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign treatment not only controls the amount of movement that each aligner delivers but also the timing of the movement. So, at each stage, only certain teeth can move, following the Invisalign treatment plan for that particular stage. This results in an efficient force delivery system.

How much does Invisalign cost?

As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign treatment depends on the complexity of your teeth straightening issue and your course of treatment. As a general rule the cost for adults is comparable to traditional fixed braces and is typically between £2,500 and £5,500, although if only minor tooth movement is required, prices could start from £1,500. However, only an Invisalign Provider can accurately determine the cost.

Information about the temporary practice closure and emergency treatments

As I am sure it may come as no surprise that we will be closing the practice following the recent guidance from the government and dental governing bodies.

The practice will be closed from Tuesday 24th March 2020 to ensure we are protecting you, our lovely patients as well as our staff.

If you have a dental emergency during this time and would like advice then please call the practice and a dentist on call will aim to call you back within a few hours. These arrangements will continue for the foreseeable future.

As a guide a dental emergency is:

  • Heavy bleeding that does not stop
  • Swelling/infection which makes it hard to breathe
  • Tooth that has been knocked out
  • Severe tooth pain

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and stay safe.
