Clear Aligners & Invisalign

Clear Aligners

Here at Glenfield Dental we understand the impact that fixed braces can have on your appearance and self-confidence. This is why we offer a choice of 2 clear removable brace systems: the popular Invisalign treatment and our own in-house clear aligner system. With either solution it means you can undergo straightening treatment discreetly, and nobody else has to know!

About clear braces

Both Invisalign and the Clear Aligner System straighten your teeth with removable braces that are virtually invisible. We use this highly advanced treatment to correct several orthodontic cases in a shorter time period than traditional brace systems. A series of custom-made clear aligners gently apply pressure to move your teeth into perfect alignment.

The procedure

During your initial consultation we will discuss your orthodontic requirements and answer any questions you may have about the treatment. We will also carry out a full assessment of your teeth and gums to ensure that you are a suitable candidate. We will then take photographs and impressions of your teeth to be sent off to a lab, where your custom aligners will be manufactured.

Once your aligners have been created, we will give you in-depth advice on how to use them in order to ensure treatment is complete in the relevant time-frame. Each aligner should be worn for two weeks at a time and can be removed when you eat and brush your teeth. After each two week period you will progress onto the next one.

You will need regular appointments so that we can check the progress of your treatment and make any necessary adjustments. Following completion of treatment many patients opt for teeth whitening to show off their straight new smile.
