Invisalign, as the name suggests, are invisible aligners that are made from a flexible and clear acrylic material, making the straightening process discreet and almost invisible!

They can fix most minor orthodontic issues for those who are conscious about the way their smile looks.

Your orthodontist will give you a set of aligners, which are to be worn in their numbered stages as your teeth gradually straighten.

The stages and shape of your aligner will be custom-made to match your current mouth shape and the teeth you want to achieve.

You will wear each set of aligners for around 22 hours a day, for 2 weeks, before moving on to the next stage.

Invisalign treatment is an ideal orthodontic procedure for adults and teenagers who wish to straighten their smiles subtly and discreetly.

They are a convenient orthodontic treatment that allows you to continue your daily life with no restrictions and little to no discomfort.

Due to today’s technology, Invisalign can now treat the most common orthodontic issues such as: 

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gappy smiles

Here at The Gentle Dental clinic in East Molesey, we want to make sure that treatment is affordable for anyone who wants and needs it.

This is why we have many finance options and payment plans available to our patients in order to suit their timeline and budget.

Want to know more about the difference between braces and Invisalign?

Because Invisalign aligners are removable, cleaning your teeth and maintaining oral hygiene couldn’t be easier.

Ensure that you brush your teeth at least twice a day as well as floss daily to help keep your mouth and teeth strong and healthy.

It is also important to remember to clean the aligners themselves.

The best way to do this is to brush them and rinse them in warm water.

Our dentists will provide you with cleaning tablets that you can use to help keep your aligners as clean as possible.

In order to ensure the best results, brush your teeth after each meal before re-inserting the aligners.

If you have received orthodontic treatment of any kind you will be advised to use a retainer to help prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original position.

This will depend on your individual case, and our Invisalign dentists Dr Rifai and Dr Marshall will advise on the best aftercare procedure for you.
