The biggest benefit of clear braces is that they're virtually invisible in your mouth. Clear aligners are much less obvious than traditional wire braces.
Traditional braces are typically worn for 2-3 years, whereas Invisalign can take as little as 6 months.
Most people describe a slight pressure when they put in a new aligner, but typically, there isn't any pain. Many patients find the tightening appointments of traditional braces to be painful.
You can remove your clear aligners when you brush your teeth, making it much easier to clean your teeth compared to traditional braces.
Invisalign uses the ClinCheck system to generate an accurate digital picture of the finished result before treatment begins.

Invisalign is a clear brace system which uses a sequence of aligners to gradually move your teeth by applying pressure in specific locations.
Invisalign has transformed over 9 million smiles - and counting! Its popularity is due to it offering a discreet solution (the aligners are barely visible) to straighten teeth. The aligners are removable so are suitable to different lifestyles.
At Eagle House Dental our Dentists are experts in Invisalign a and variety of other cosmetic and short-term orthodontic treatments.
Impressions are taken of your teeth and then scanned into 3D modelling software.
A unique set of movements are planned to straighten your teeth and individual aligners are printed to carry out the planned tooth movement.
You will then visit your Invisalign Dentist to have the aligners fitted. The virtually invisible aligners are changed every 7-10 days and gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you'll be proud of.
Each case is individual, for an accurate treatment time please contact us for a free consultation.
On average Invisalign Go takes 3-6 months to straighten your teeth.

1. Free consultation
At the initial consultation we will discuss what you would like to change about your smile, and your Invisalign Dentist will assess your suitability for treatment.
2. Clinical examination
If you're suitable for Invisalign treatment your Dentist will carry out a full orthodontic assessment, which will include taking photos and impressions of your teeth. This information will be sent to the Invisalign Lab.
3. ClinCheck Review
Your impressions will be scanned by the Invisalign Lab and a treatment plan will be formed (the number of aligners you will require). Invisalign's ClinCheck will show you the finished result before treatment begins.
4. Fitting your aligners
Once your aligners are printed they will be delivered directly to your Invisalign Dentist in one complete shipment. We will then make arrangements to fit your first aligner. Your aligners needs to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours per day for the best result.
5. Monitoring progress
Each aligner is numbered in sequence and needs to be changed every 7-10 days. This is simply done by replacing the existing aligner with the next aligner in the sequence and can be done at home. Your progress will be reviewed with your Invisalign Dentist every 2-6 weeks.
6. Retainers fit
Once you've reached the last of your aligners and your Invisalign Dentist is happy with the results, it can be removed and the treatment is complete.
It is really important to plan how we are going to hold your teeth in their new position. Retainers hold the teeth in place so your teeth do not move back to their original position. Retention can either be removable or fixed.
Invisalign can treat a number of mild to moderate discrepancies.
The is when the upper front teeth close in front of the lower teeth. An overbite can cause gum damage, jaw pain and sleep apnoea.
This is when the lower teeth protrude past the upper front teeth. An underbite can cause difficulty in both speaking and eating, pain in the face and jaw, and eventual tooth and gum problems.
This is when the upper and lower jaws don't line up. A crossbite can cause chipped and worn down teeth and gums.
This is when there are extra spaces between teeth. A gap between teeth can lead to food getting stuck, which can cause sore gums and in some cases gum disease.
This when the top and bottom teeth don't meet. An open bite can make it difficult to eat, chew and swallow.
This is when there isn't enough room in the jaw for teeth to fit normally. Crowded teeth can harm your hygiene by making brushing and flossing more difficult.
Baby and permanent teeth
This is phase 1 orthodontic treatment for growing children with a mix of baby and permanent teeth.
Generally Straighter Teeth
This is when you just want a more beautiful smile.
Each case is individual, for an accurate answer please contact us for a free consultation.
Generally speaking, treatment is only suitable for people requiring mild or moderate corrections to their teeth.
Each brace system has its advantages and disadvantages.
As with all orthodontic treatment there will be minor discomfort due to the pressure applied to move your teeth. This usually only lasts a few days after fitting you new aligners. Paracetamol or Ibuprofen can be taken to relieve the discomfort.
Invisalign should not affect your speech but may take a little while to get used to wearing them.
To achieve optimal results, the aligners need to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day.
There are a few things to remember when taking care of your aligners:
There a number of different treatments dedicated to different needs.
Invisalign Full can correct a wide number of issues over an average time of about a year.
Invisalign Lite is a between system, allowing for cases to be completed in just 7 months, using fourteen or less aligners.
Invisalign Go is intended for mild to moderate cases and can be used to quickly treat mild crowding, spaces and brace relapse.
Invisalign i7 is designed for mild cases that can be completed in as little as three months.
ClinCheck is software that maps out the path to your smile, right down to the tiniest shift, from your first aligner to your brand-new smile.
Retainers are an important part of any teeth straightening treatment. Without retention, teeth can move slowly back to their original position. Vivera retainers are designed with the same state of the art technology as Invisalign's clear aligners. They are a discreet, comfortable and removable way to ensure your smile is protected for years to come.
