Invisalign / orthodontics
Braces are an excellent way of correcting crooked or malpositioned teeth and allowing you to have the smile you’ve always wanted. Braces have long been used on children but more and more adults are realising the amazing results of braces. Having straight teeth is not only of cosmetic benefit but also aids in the cleaning of teeth resulting in better health.
We offer both fixed and removable ‘invisible’ braces – our dentists will carry out a thorough examination to deem your mouth healthy and suitable for braces and then discuss the best orthodontic options for your specific case with you.
Invisalign is a removable, clear and nearly invisible orthodontic system, which typically takes 6-18 months to straighten teeth. It can be used to correct crossbites, overjet, overbite and crowding and works great on children and adults.
The dentist will take a mould of your teeth and this gets sent to the Invisalign headquarters based in America. A 3D simulation of your teeth and final result can be shown to you before you commit to treatment.
Custom made removable aligners are then made to fit your teeth – each is worn for 2 weeks and then changed to the next in the sequence. This incredibly discreet system should be worn for a minimum of 20 hours a day. It can be removed when eating and cleaning the teeth.
