If you have crooked or gapped teeth but are put off wearing braces, there is an alternative: a form of invisible braces known as Invisalign. Invisalign corrects the position of teeth using a series of removable aligners made from clear plastic and worn over the teeth like a gum shield. Age is not a factor when choosing Invisalign because it is a versatile and comfortable treatment. It is also very discreet as it is practically invisible to onlookers.
At Manchester Dental Practice we want to preserve and enhance your smile. We have considerable experience of successfully fitting Invisalign for a wide variety of, very satisfied, patients, for whom it has restored the natural brilliance of their smile.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a very popular choice particularly for adults and teenagers who want to straighten their teeth without sacrificing their image. Because they are removable, you can still eat and brush your teeth as normal and this makes them better for dental hygiene than traditional braces. They are more comfortable and there are fewer restrictions compared to braces which means you can continue to enjoy participating in sporting or musical pastimes.
Invisalign works by using plastic aligners, custom-made to straighten your teeth. These aligners look like thin gum shields, fitting simply over your teeth. You will be assigned a different set every two weeks in accordance with your treatment plan. This is because, each set is configured to gradually move your teeth closer to their desired position.
What is the treatment?
When you visit Manchester Dental Practice, you can have the peace of mind of being in the capable hands of a highly professional and dedicated team.

The first step to Invisalign is to take a set of images, dental impressions, X rays together with photographs of your smile and send these to our laboratory where a specialist team will create a 3D animated model of your mouth and devise a treatment plan. This is then returned to our experienced dentists for review and feedback. They will also this discuss this information with you and show you how your teeth will looking once the procedure is over, giving you full control over the treatment decisions. The next stage is for your custom Invisalign fittings to be manufactured. The whole process from consultation to fitting your highly discreet Invisalign can take between four to six weeks.
