Invisible Braces

Think you need traditional braces to straighten your teeth?

Think again- long gone are the days when a mouthful of uncomfortable metal and endless painful trips to the orthodontist was the only way you were going to get rid of those buck teeth or that unattractive smile.

With the latest advances in dental technology such as Invisalign Treatment it is now possible to have straighter teeth at any age and achieve it without anyone even knowing you’re wearing a ‘brace’ on your teeth.

Invisalign involves custom made aligners and a tray system which you wear over your teeth. The trays are changed every few weeks to slowly move your teeth into the required position over time.

The Invisalign Trays are kept in place over the teeth during the day and each set is changed over time for a new and different set or tray system hence slowly moving teeth into a straighter position.

The trays can be removed for eating, drinking or cleaning of teeth and is a comfortable and aesthetically suitable option for all age groups, young and old.

If Invisalign is not a suitable option for you for whatever reason, there are other ‘invisible’ teeth straightening options available such as Lingual Braces. This is a fixed (metal) brace that sits behind or inside the teeth thereby making them completely invisible. They cannot be removed for eating, drinking or cleaning of teeth but some people prefer this type of brace to the traditional metal ‘train tracks’ or traditional braces for cosmetic and aestehtic reasons.
