How does it work?

Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, invisalign® uses your dentist’s instructions to create a series of custom made removable mouth trays (aligners). These aligners apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth, causing them to move. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position.


How long will invisalign® take?

Invisalign® only works while you wear the aligners. We recommend they are worn full time day and night (min 22–24 hours).

Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks, (before moving onto the next in the series), moving your teeth millimetre by millimetre, week by week, until you reach your desired result.

Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average invisalign® treatment is nine to eighteen months.

During treatment you should visit us periodically, until it is determined that your treatment is complete.

Once active treatment is complete, there may be some fine tuning to create that perfect smile.

Kerry’s Case



Patient Testimonial

When I first heard about Invisalign I thought “I think my teeth are straight enough” but then looking more closely at them and seeing cases complete I thought differently.

So I decided to have what they call a Clincheck with Invisalign and Jane Akhtar the Dentist here at the Dental Healthcare Centre. The Difference I saw from start to finish on the computer was outstanding and I wanted it doing yesterday.

After wearing my aligners or the last 11 months I am delighted and thrilled with the result. People have been amazed that I’m wearing a brace as they haven’t noticed unless I have told them. The care and advice I have received has been outstanding.

I would recommend this treatment to anyone who is suitable. It’s affordable and relatively easy. It does what it says on the tin! I have a white STRAIGHT smile this Christmas.

One very happy Kerry, Thanks again Jane Akhtar and the Dental Healthcare Centre.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jane and her team of dental nurses for the high level of service provided during my course of treatment. I am really pleased with the end result.

I have been a patient for a number of years and I’m always satisfied with the level of service from all members of staff.

Many thanks
