Invisalign Clear Braces

AP Smilecare Invisalign Treatment

We are proud to have been chosen as the Invisalign ‘I Go’ providers for our local area. The Invisalign system is a universal brand with many years of successful care in correcting teeth that are misaligned or crowded in a smile.

Their unique patented clear aligner system gently creates forces on your teeth that correct minor issues for the front upper &/or lower teeth. The treatment is often completed in just over 3 months; perfect if you want that great smile for a special occasion.

What makes Invisalign superior to all other adult brace systems that you can choose is the technology that it uses to design the bespoke smile you want.

Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and can create intelligent forces on individual teeth to bodily rotate and align them into a pre determined position.

This means that before treatment you can see exactly what the smile is that we will create and that is exactly what your result will be.

The cost of the treatment is £2500.00 which includes all aligners during treatment and your first set of retainers post treatment to help maintain your result. Your initial assessment for Invisalign is free for in house patients and for new patients a fee of £25.00, which will be refunded if you take up the treatment.

Invisalign Braces

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the world’s safest and most recognised of the ‘Adult Brace’ options.

These clear aligners fit invisibly over your teeth, and can help tweak an individual tooth or several at once – you decide. The aligners create a gentle pressure that can design the smile you want in the space of six to twelve months.

Invisalign is also the only brace system that can provide you with images of exactly how your teeth will look at the end of treatment, so you can be reassured that you’ll get the result you desire!

Renowned for its high rate of effectiveness, Invisalign is especially recommended in cases of working to a deadline, or if you only need your front teeth adjusting.

Invisalign – How does it work?

Invisalign Treatment FAQs

  • Initially we will assess the health of your teeth to ensure the foundations of your teeth are healthy base to proceed with treatment.
  • We will take a series of photos to assess whether the Invisalign system will create the result you want.
  • We will set up a finance package for you to help fund treatment if this is what you choose.
  • Once you have agreed to treatment we will take moulds of your teeth. These will be used to create the template for your aligners
  • Invisalign will generate a computer model of your personal before and after smile. This allows you to see exactly what your smile will look like.
  • The initial fir appointment is an hour.
  • During this time we may need to thin enamel from the sides of adjacent teeth to allow for the teeth to de rotate and we may need to add tiny white resin buttons onto certain teeth to allow certain forces to be generated onto the teeth.
  • We will provide you with an additional 4 aligners that you will change weekly at home to create the tooth movement.
  • We will review you every 4-6 weeks depending on treatment lengths to assess how your smile is changing and provide you with your next set of aligners.
  • As the final aligners are fitted we will assess if you are fully happy with the result and if needs be we can further tweak your smile with new aligners
  • Once we complete treatment we remove all the resin buttons and provide you with your first pair of retainers to wear nightly on a permanent basis to prevent your teeth moving out of line. If possible we will also place a fixed thin wire to the inside of your teeth to prevent further movement.
  • The aligners create very gentle forces on your teeth as they move so it is very unlikely that the treatment will be uncomfortable
  • When we come to initially thin the enamel at the aligner fit appointment this can feel slightly uncomfortable. We would recommend painkillers before you attend the clinic.
  • It will may be sensitive to extreme temperatures when you eat for a few days afterwards. This has no harmful effect to your teeth and is a recognised way to create space in orthodontics (teeth straightening).
  • The resin buttons will not cause any issues as they will be covered with your aligner, however when you remove your aligner to eat they may rub on the inner surface of your cheek so we can provide you with a mouth wax that you press over the resin to create a smoother surface.
  • To get the best and fastest result with your retainer you need to wear it everyday for at least 23 hours. The only time you remove them is to eat and clean your teeth.
  • You homecare is important to maintain the health of your smile before, during and after treatment. This includes twice daily brushing, flossing, fluoride mouth rinsing and after meals, plus a reduced sugar diet to prevent decay.
  • We would also recommend regular exams and hygiene treatment.
  • At the end of treatment we will provide you with a set of plastic retainers that you wear nightly to prevent further movement. We would recommend that these retainers are renewed yearly to maintain their strength and prevent lapse.
  • We may also fit a wire on the inner surface of your teeth to prevent movement. This is called a fixed retainer and stays permanently in position; it will require routine inspection to ensure its stability.
