We have a team of experienced dentists who have treated several complicated orthodontic cases successfully with Invisalign treatment. Invisalign braces help both adult and teens to achieve straighter teeth and a confident smile. We will design a signature smile for you by straightening your misaligned or crooked teeth.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a solution for teeth straightening and improving your smile. Earlier, fixed brackets and wires were the only options for correcting misaligned teeth but now by using a series of removable aligners (Invisalign), teeth can be moved to their desired position. These invisible braces are transparent and almost invisible.

How are Invisalign braces made?

These virtually invisible aligners are made of a thermoplastic material that has been developed especially for Invisalign. The clear braces are quite similar to teeth-whitening trays. A series of aligners will be customised for you and used in sequence, gradually moving teeth into proper alignment.

How does Invisalign work?

Each aligner should be worn for at least two weeks, before changing the next one in the series shifting the teeth gently into proper alignment. We will evaluate the progress to ensure everything is progressing correctly.

Make sure you wear the aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day to achieve the desired results. You can remove them for eating, drinking, brushing or flossing.

Invisalign is considered a safe and effective way of straightening teeth.

Who can have Invisalign?

Invisalign braces are designed to correct over 90% of orthodontic problems such as:

  • Crossbite:  If one or more teeth from your upper jaw bite on the interior of lower set of teeth, this is called crossbite usually present when the upper and lower jaws have been misaligned. It can be the reason for gum disease, bone loss and degradation of teeth.
  • Gapped teeth:  The gap in between your teeth may occur due to unusual growth of the jawbone or of a tooth, or when teeth from surrounding areas shift from their actual positions into the additional space. Your gapped teeth may be the reason for gum problems and periodontal disease.
  • Underbite:  Due to insufficient growth of upper jaw or missing number of upper teeth, the lower jaw might protrude and give rise to an improper bite. This prevents normal functioning of your front teeth and causes jaw pain.
  • Overbite: This usually happens if the upper jaw abnormally covers the lower jaw. An overbite may lead to gum problems, wearing of teeth on the lower jaw and joint problems.
  • Crowded teeth: Teeth crowding takes place when there isn’t sufficient room in the upper and lower jaw to fit all your growing teeth. Your teeth may get crowded and become severely crooked, if not treated. It is very difficult to clean misaligned teeth so tooth decay, gum disease and plaque can occur through having crowded teeth.
  • Open bite: An open bite usually occurs when some teeth on the upper and lower jaws do not meet. Genetic reasons, excessive thumb sucking and improper chewing habits can cause an open bite.

Benefits of Invisalign Braces

Invisalign is extremely discreet; thanks to those virtually undetectable clear aligners.

There are a number of benefits of Invisalign treatment that make it popular among our patients:

Step by step process for Invisalign treatment

  • Your experience begins with an initial consultation session with one of our Invisalign experts at the clinic in London.
  • After listening to your expectations, our dentist will create a personalised plan and a computer model of the entire treatment.
  • After approval, a treatment session will be arranged for made-to-measure Invisalign aligners to be planned. Your specifications and photographs, along with teeth impressions will then be sent to the Invisalign laboratory.
  • Your customised aligners will be prepared with your dental impressions as a template.
  • The clear braces are designed with precision to ensure optimum effectiveness.
  • Your invisible braces will then be fitted in the clinic and your journey to straighter teeth has started!
  • You will be advised to wear these comfortable aligners for two weeks as your teeth gradually shift towards their desired position.

Time of treatment

The treatment time is usually 6 to 22 months, a time that might be more or less based on the complexity of your tooth misalignment. An accurate forecast of the length of the treatment will be provided during the consultation. You will also be given a visualisation of the outcome that is predicted.

Your check-up appointments with your Invisalign provider will usually be at 4-6 week intervals to evaluate your overall progress and make further corrections, if needed.

Types of Invisalign Braces

Various types of braces are available for teens and adult, their cost and other essential things we feel should be able to guide you through your decision process.

  • Invisalign full - The Invisalign Full is common kind of Invisalign brace used for treating severe orthodontic cases. The treatment time might is usually between twelve to eighteen months however, this will depend on the type of orthodontic condition.
  • Invisalign Lite - The Invisalign lite is used to treat lesser orthodontic conditions and uses a fixed number of braces to correct small misalignment problems. This will not take as long as Invisalign Full to correct the dental problem.
  • Invisalign Teen - The Invisalign Teen has been designed specially to adjust with the changes in the teeth and jaws of teenagers.
  • Invisalign i7 - This is used for minor dental problems such as slight overcrowding and slightly crooked teeth.

Invisalign vs. Fixed Braces

Fixed braces are great because they exert just the right amount of pressure on the teeth to be straightened. In as much as fixed braces are used for extreme cases of misalignment, not everyone would want other people to know they wear braces. For people who don’t want others to know they wear braces, Invisalign is very discreet.

For those who want their braces to be invisible can go for ceramic or clear glass braces; although these type of braces are usually more expensive than metal braces, Invisalign braces are a bit more expensive than the regular fixed braces and are also used for not very severe misalignment cases such as crossbites and malocclusions. In severe cases, fixed braces might be recommended.

Invisalign is often used for gappy teeth and minor cases of an underbite. Most patients like Invisalign braces because they are removable and easy to clean. Unlike the fixed braces that are not easy to clean as food can become trapped in the braces. With Invisalign, there is no limitation as to what you eat or drink as long as the teeth are cleaned or flossed before replacing the Invisalign braces.

Treatment with Invisalign could take a little longer to work than fixed braces because, with Invisalign braces, the teeth tend to move more gradually. Treatments with Invisalign can take as long as 18 - 22 months compared to the conventional fixed braces that can take a shorter period of about 6-12 months, however, the duration is dependent on the severity of the treatments. Also, treatment for Invisalign can take longer if the patient fails to wear his or her Invisalign braces for the recommended 22 hours daily.

How Much does Invisalign Cost at Our Clinic?

The cost of treatment with Invisalign is dependent on the severity of a patient’s case. A patient who desires to be treated with Invisalign would need to come to our clinic in London for consultation with one of our orthodontists’ to assess what is needed.

The cost of Invisalign braces can be calculated to be from £3000 - £5000, reflecting the technology involved with Invisalign.

FAQs on Invisalign

Q1. How invisible are Invisalign braces?

Invisalign aligners are almost invisible. Even face-to-face and in lengthy conversation with family or friends, they won’t be able to guess that you are wearing the aligners.

Q2. Will Invisalign affect my speech?

There will be a slight lisp when you speak initially. However, you will get used to wearing your aligners and start speaking confidently within a few days.

Q3. Will it be comfortable and easy to use Invisalign aligners?

Invisalign aligners had been designed to provide you with greater comfort and ease over traditional braces. These modern braces are completely free from brackets and metal wires and hence, you will enjoy better comfort and convenience.

Q4. How long will I have to wear the aligners each day?

You need to wear them for at least 20 to 22 hours in a day; otherwise the treatment won’t be effective. However, the benefit of these aligners is that you can remove them when you eat, drink, brush, floss or take part in sports. However, you need to replace them immediately you have finished these activities in order to get the best results from the treatment.

Q5. Do I need to wear Invisalign attachments?

This will depend on each case, but if needed we will attach these small tooth-coloured buttons to the teeth of some patients.

Q6. What should I do if I lose my Invisalign aligners?

You need to inform your Invisalign provider immediately. In the meantime, you can wear an aligner from your previous set to prevent teeth from moving too far from their desired location.

Q7. What are my Invisalign aligners made of?

Invisalign braces are made of transparent poly-cystalline alumina or TPA. The product was initially meant for missile tracking. It is popular for its other properties such as smoothness and transparency.

Q8. Do I have to continue wearing the aligners after the treatment is done?

Yes, you will have to wear either your fixed or removable retainers once the treatment is done. This ensures your teeth do not shift from their new position.
