Although visible appliances like fixed braces are widely accepted, especially by younger patients, some people favour a more discreet option.

 

Invisible options like ceramic braces and fixed lingual braces are excellent for treating more complex problems but for more minor issues, clear aligners can also be suitable.

Clear aligners such as Invisalign use pressure to move the teeth into more desirable positions. Braces are tightened periodically until the final outcome is achieved. With clear aligners, however, the current appliances are exchanged for new adjusted ones at regular intervals to keep the teeth moving towards their ideal positions. The number  of sets of aligners used over the course of treatment will vary depending on the complexity of the correction, but they are replaced about every two weeks.

When fitted in your mouth, clear aligners are discreet and will go unseen in most social situations. The appliances are removable but are designed to be worn at all times when not eating, brushing or doing an activity that may damage them such as contact sports.
It is important that you follow the treatment plan as directed by your specialist  orthodontist for the aligners to be effective.

More complex corrections can be treated with clear aligners but we usually only recommend them for minor issues. We appreciate that aligners appeal to patients who find the idea of braces too invasive, however, and we are happy to discuss this as an option in these cases.

Pros of clear
aligners

  • A less visible and less invasive alternative
    to braces for treating minor corrections
  • The appliances are removable and easy to
    clean
  • A popular treatment worldwide with a tried
    and tested pedigree

What to expect

Treatment with clear aligners lasts 12 to 18 months on average. You will need to exchange your current set for new ones every two weeks and we will need to see you at intervals to ensure the treatment is going as planned. Once complete, you will need to wear a retainer at night to ensure your results are permanent.
