What are Invisalign Braces?

Invisalign braces use a series of removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. These aligners are made from clear plastic material making them virtually invisible.

What types of cases can Invisalign treat?

Invisalign can be used to treat the majority of cases, but it is over to the dentist or orthodontist who is treating you to recommend the type of orthodontic treatment you will most benefit from. Experienced orthodontic practitioners, like Elmhurst, will be confident in treating a wider range of complex cases using Invisalign than a dentist without broad orthodontic experience.

Who can provide Invisalign treatment?

Both orthodontists and general dentists are able to provide Invisalign; however, the amount of Invisalign experience varies greatly between providers and successful Invisalign treatment relies heavily on the training and experience of the treating clinician.

Is Elmhurst Orthodontic Clinic a registered specialist orthodontist clinic?

Absolutely! Our orthodontic specialists  have completed an additional 2-3 year master’s degree in orthodontics. Specialist orthodontic clinics like Elmhurst, who focus on Invisalign, will routinely treat 50 to 200 complex orthodontic cases per year. By choosing an orthodontist with experience, you increase the probability that they have the experience to treat a case like yours.

How much do Invisalign Braces cost?

Invisalign treatment starts from around £1500 depending on your treatment needs. We also offer payment plans available to help with the cost of treatment.

Will Invisalign treatment be painful?

Most people experience temporary, minor discomfort for a few days at the beginning of each new stage of treatment. This is normal and is typically described as a feeling of pressure. It is a sign that the Invisalign aligners are working sequentially to move your teeth to their final destination. This discomfort typically goes away after a couple of days

Will wearing the aligners affect my speech?

Like all orthodontic treatments, aligners may temporarily affect the speech of some people and you may have a slight lisp for a day or two. However, as your tongue gets used to having aligners in your mouth, any lisp or minor speech impediment caused by the aligners should disappear.

How often must I wear the aligners?

Aligners should be worn all day, except when eating, brushing and flossing.
