Braces - A Solution For Adults

  • Almost Invisible – It’s virtually invisible compared to metal braces
  • Removable – Can be removed for up to 2 hours each day, for special occasions or a meal
  • Comfy – Causes less irritation to gums, teeth or cheeks
  • Clean – teeth can be brushed and flossed as normal
  • Lifestyle – comfortable, with a low impact on day-to-day activities
  • Not Bulky – Your speech will hardly be affected

Invisalign® and Clear correct® are orthodontic systems that use clear plastic trays that help to give you a balanced, even smile.

This method of straightening teeth can be more comfortable and virtually invisible compared to traditional braces.

In addition to this, effective oral hygiene can be maintained throughout the teeth straightening process to help keep your gums and mouth healthy.

Virtually Undetectable

After a thorough consultation, the latest 3D computer generated software is used to help create a customised plan for you. We can then show you a computerised plan of how your teeth will look after treatment is completed.

Treatment consists of a series of clear aligners (thin plastic trays), that apply a constant force to teeth to gently push them into the correct position.

+ - What’s involved?

The aligners are worn day and night but can be removed when eating, flossing or cleaning your teeth. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks before moving onto the next one. Treatment generally takes between 9-18 months with a dental visit required every 4-6 weeks.

Many adults who have bite problems or crooked teeth refrain from having their teeth straightened simply because they don’t want to be seen in the workplace wearing ‘railroad track’ braces. Aligners elegantly solve this problem. They are virtually undetectable. And they’re more comfortable – in fact, many people soon forget they’re wearing them.

Another advantage is that the aligners can be removed for brief periods. While they should be worn constantly, it is acceptable to remove them for a maximum of two hours a day – perfect for special occasions or big presentations.

+ - What’s the process?

After an initial consultation with your Dentist, a 3D digital image of your teeth will be produced. A set of custom aligners, specifically made for you, is then produced from this image.

At this point, it’s also possible to see a computerised estimate of how your teeth will look once the treatment is complete. This gives you a realistic expectation of the final outcome.

Each aligner is worn for two weeks before moving on to the next one in the series. Generally, treatment can take between 9-18 months and a visit to the Dentist is required every 4-6 weeks. While the number of aligners needed is different for each patient and their treatment plan, it usually requires 18 to 36 aligners to achieve the final result.

Advantages of Clear aligners

There can be various reasons why adults are attracted to clear aligners: they can help to correct a number of orthodontic issues including overcrowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, cross-bites, overbites and underbites

+ - Can I get Clear aligners?

While clear aligners are suitable for most people, not all orthodontic issues can be treated with aligners. It is important that you are assessed by us.
