Why Invisalign is the best clear aligner system

Clear, removable aligners are a popular way to straighten teeth, especially among adults and teens. There are no metal brackets or wires, and you can take them out to eat, drink and clean your teeth.

There are lots of clear aligners to choose from, but our favourite, without a doubt, is Invisalign. It’s backed by two decades of innovation, and other aligners don’t even come close.

Preview your treatment

At the beginning of your treatment, we’ll take some scans of your mouth to create digital models of your teeth and jaws. We’ll use these to plan your treatment and design your custom-made aligners.

Before we manufacture your aligners, we’ll show you a 3D treatment plan and your planned result. You’ll be able to see how your teeth will move and how they’ll look at every step of your transformation.

SmartTrack material

Invisalign is made from a patented SmartTrack material. It’s designed to provide gentle, continual forces for maximum control and predictable results. The thin aligners will snugly fit the contours of your teeth for added precision and comfort.

Invisalign’s SmartTrack material can even help to speed up your treatment – simple corrections can take as little as three months.

SmartStaging technology

Invisalign’s SmartStaging technology programmes the movements of your teeth in a specific sequence. By moving each tooth at the optimal time, we can achieve greater predictability and the best possible outcome.

SmartForce features

One of the things we love most about Invisalign are its special features, which make it suitable for a wide range of cases. Mail-order aligners are only capable of making simple movements and treating very straightforward complaints.

Invisalign boasts buttons, bite ramps, precision cuts and power ridges, all of which allow us to treat challenging cases without fixed braces.

Recent innovations

Innovation is at the heart of Invisalign, and these clever aligners keep getting better. More recently, Invisalign introduced a solution for class II bites, (where the upper jaw protrudes past the lower jaw), providing growing patients with an alternative to functional appliances and elastics.

The number one choice for specialists

Invisalign is only available from Invisalign-trained dentists and orthodontists. As a specialist orthodontic practice, we only use the best appliances, and Invisalign delivers a fantastic experience from start to finish. Specialist orthodontist Dr Iain Hoeltschi (pictured below) is proud to be an Invisalign Platinum Provider.

Invisalign’s 3D software gives our specialist orthodontists maximum control, so we can tailor your treatment plan to achieve exceptional results.
