Gappy, crooked or overlapping teeth?

Enjoy straighter teeth the almost invisible way with Invisalign® clear aligner braces. Now you can have that lovely straight smile, and no-one need ever know you are having orthodontic treatment.

The Invisalign Treatment Plan

Once you and our orthodontist, Lisa Hichens, determine that Invisalign is right for your needs, she will develop a detailed treatment plan from which your bespoke, virtually invisible aligners will be made to order.

The impressions of your teeth will be digitised in order for Lisa to work with a computerised 3D image of your teeth. Then Lisa will plan your tooth movements throughout your entire treatment timeline.

You’ll be able to see a virtual representation of your teeth before, during, and after completion of the Invisalign® process so you can see what your smile should look like when your treatment is complete.

Bespoke Clear Aligners

Once you have agreed to your treatment plan, bespoke clear aligners are custom-made for you, each of which have to be worn for approximately two weeks before you switch to the next aligner in the series.

While the number of aligners varies for each individual, a full treatment typically includes 18-36 aligners for both the upper and lower teeth which will take approximately 9-18 months depending on your individual case.

Invisalign Treatment Process

Invisalign® Aligners should be worn day and night (22 hours a day), except when eating, brushing or flossing teeth in order to complete your treatment in the timeline determined by you and our orthodontist. You’ll have reviews every 4-6 weeks to monitor your progress and to receive your next series of aligners. During the entire treatment process your teeth will gradually move into an even and healthy smile.

What exactly are invisible braces?

Invisible braces are the modern replacement for conventional train track orthodontic braces.

If I’m not suitable for Invisalign®, what alternatives are there?

This complete range is offered by us here at our Portishead dental practice. Amongst the other kinds of invisible brace is lingual braces.

In this way, lingual orthodontics could be categorised as invisible braces together with Invisalign®.
