Invisalign

The road to a straight smile has never been easier

Image is important and lacking confidence in our smiles can hold us back from truly living the life we want. But traditional braces aren’t suitable for us all.

Invisalign can change that.

Clear and removable, Invisalign discreetly does its work so life can carry on as normal. You’ll see big changes from small movements in just a matter of weeks and because the aligners are completely transparent, results are the only thing you do see!

Who is it for?

Overly Crowded

Overly Crowded - Invisalign

Overly crowded teeth can get worse over time, and result in severely crooked teeth. This crowding can lead to plaque accumulation, tooth decay and an increased chance of gum disease.

Gapped Teeth

Gapped Teeth - Infinity Smiles

Spacing issues and gaps between teeth can lead to gum problems (due to lack of protection by the teeth), periodontal pockets and increased risk of periodontal disease.

Cross Bite

Crossbite

Crossbites cause one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth. This can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease and bone loss.

Deep Bite

Deep Bite

Deep bites lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth, causing painful jaw and joint problems.

Under Bite

Under Bite

Underbites can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars, which can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.

Open Bite

Open Bite

Open bites can cause poor or painful chewing and even speech impairment. It can also lead to greater issues like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD).

How it works?

Invisalign aligners slowly change the position of your teeth which you swap every few weeks until you’re left with a beautifully straight smile.

At your initial appointment, we’ll identify and discuss whether Invisalign is for you and how it will fit into your lifestyle. Our iTero scanner will then scan your mouth to show the 3D detail of your teeth.

Once we’ve scanned your mouth we’ll take impressions of your teeth to make your custom aligners. When these are ready, you’ll pop in again to pick them up and start your treatment.

FAQs

Are they really invisible?

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. They’re unobtrusive and made from lightweight, clear plastic. Even from close quarters, you’d have to tell someone you were wearing aligners before they notice them.

Can I eat and drink?

Yes. One of the chief advantages of Invisalign aligners is that you can remove them to eat or drink. Unlike standard braces, they won’t impinge upon your social or business life.

Does it hurt?

Like any braces, Invisalign aligners exert a slight pressure when they’re first fitted. Unlike conventional braces, they don’t irritate or cause any pain beyond this.

Are there any side effects?

Invisalign aligners may have a slight effect upon your speech when they’re first fitted, causing a slight lisp. Unlike standard braces, however, they can be removed temporarily if you need to make an important speech.

Will Invisalign affect my speech?

The vast majority of patients report no effect on speech. However, as with traditional orthodontic appliances, there is an initial adjustment period associated with having something new in the mouth.

Is Invisalign just for adults?

You don’t need to be an adult to have aligners fitted, but you do need to have all your adult teeth.

What are the advantages over traditional braces?

The main advantage over traditional braces is the fact that Invisalign aligners won’t mar the appearance of your smile while they do their work. There are no unsightly metal bands holding them in place.

Unlike standard permanent braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed when called for, i.e. when receiving standard dental treatment.

The ease of removal means it is easy to maintain dental hygiene standards whilst wearing the aligners.

How do I brush my teeth with Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are completely removable so you can brush your teeth as normal.

Once Invisalign treatment is complete is a retainer necessary?

We supply every Invisalign patient with a retainer to wear every night once they complete treatment. This will help to keep your smile beautiful.

I had braces when I was younger, but my teeth have shifted. Will Invisalign help correct this?

A number of Invisalign patients have undergone a treatment involving braces at some point in their past, often during their youth. Invisalign can usually correct the shifting that occurs after braces – often referred to as a relapse.
