Invisalign is a system for straightening teeth without the use of conventional metal braces using the very latest in 3D printing technology. Invisalign works by repositioning teeth step by step into their ideal position, using a series of custom-made transparent removable clear ‘aligners’. These aligners gradually straighten your teeth over time. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.

With no wires, no brackets and no braces, Invisalign offers a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. It’s like the secret agent of orthodontics! Invisalign works by using a series of clear and comfortable aligners that no one will be able to tell you are wearing.
They are barely visible on your teeth and removable for when you want to eat, brush your teeth or attend a special social or professional event.
Our dentists will create a unique digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements of your teeth based on your needs and treatment aims. Your Invisalign clear aligners are then designed and manufactured bespoke to apply the correct amount of force to the right place at the right time based on your plan. Your dentist will be with you every step of the way to monitor your progress and ensure your aligners fit correctly.
Once our dentist agrees that you are suitable for Invisalign, you will begin with a consultation during which you will be able to see a 3D time-lapse image of your teeth before, during and after treatment. We will take digital dental impressions and commence fabrication of your bespoke Invisalign aligners. Then you will wear the retainers for the prescribed amount of time, returning to change them every so often until your treatment is complete.
There are two main procedures associated with Inman aligner treatment which allow us to be able to give you the beautiful smile that you deserve. One of them is the use of attachment technology and the other is known as IPR. More details of each are given below:
This patient was concerned mainly by the upper right incisor tooth which was not in line with the rest of the teeth.
A short treatment course with Invisalign was able to correct this crowding giving the patient the look she wanted. The main benefit of Invisalign for this patient was that it was discrete and comfortable so the patient was able to get on with her daily activities and work without any discomfort or worry regarding the visibility of the brace. Furthermore due to the ease of treatment with Invisalign, there are seldom any emergencies making this process so much more predictable, comfortable and efficient for the adult patient.
This case of upper and lower crowding was treated by our specialist Ciara as the patient did not like how his teeth detracted from his smile. There was a fair bit of crowding with the teeth angled and mal-postioned creating a disharmony in the appearance of the smile.
Effective treatment with the Invisalign system allowed his teeth to be straightened in a most efficient way giving him back the confidence to smile once again without being conscious of how his teeth look. The crowding was corrected without the need for any extraction and in addition to a better smile the bite was improved so the teeth meet better. This allows better efficiency in the chewing process and less damage and wear in the long run.
Before starting treatment we had a significant level of crowding with both the upper canines sticking out. A couple of the incisors are also tucked in behind the lower teeth which is known as a 'Cross bite'. These issues were detracting from the patients' smile and he wanted it to be corrected so he could smile with confidence once again.
The finished result after Invisalign treatment shows how the canines are now back into the right position with the crossbite and crowding all corrected. This has created a more harmonious smile and a very happy patient
This patient did not like the fact that his upper incisor teeth were biting behind his lower teeth which is known as a 'crossbite' as he felt this was detracting from his natural smile. The bite was also out of sync which meant that the efficiency of the chewing process was compromised and would have led to a quicker deterioration and wear of some these teeth in the long run.
Treatment with Invisalign was able to correct this quickly and efficiently and has lead to a more stable bite and aesthetic smile. The benefit Invisalign brought to this case was that the patient was able to eat and chew normally without any hindrance or restriction as the Invisalign brace can be removed momentarily throughout the day for eating and brushing
Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not even notice you are wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. Unlike fixed braces there are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break, sending you to your dentist for an emergency visit.
As you replace each aligner, your teeth shift little by little until they straighten to the final position we engineer. The aligners are custom-made to each person’s prescription to perfectly correct the alignment of the teeth in as little as a few months.
