A. Invisalign is in a completely different league to traditional fixed braces. This is because the aligners used for treatment can be removed, allowing for easy maintenance of oral hygiene and a lowered risk of gum irritation.
There are no wires or brackets present and the treatment works by the replacement of aligners every 2 weeks. The aligners work in a way that gently repositions the teeth, meaning that Invisalign is relatively pain-free.
A. Invisalign is currently the most discreet orthodontic treatment available. The aligners are practically invisible and free of wires and brackets.
A. Invisalign is designed to treat both mild cases such as overcrowding and more severe cases involving bite problems. Other orthodontic issues that Invisalign is designed to fix include:
A. The treatment process depends entirely upon the individual’s requirements. Typically, the expected length of treatment ranges from 6 months to a year, with the aligners being replaced every 2 weeks. The aligners should be worn for around 20 to 22 hours per day for a maximum rate of success.
A. Invisalign is designed for comfort and easy removal. However, as with all orthodontic treatments, you are likely to experience some form of discomfort. This discomfort is at its worst during the first fitting of the aligners, but soon subsides.
It takes time for the mouth to grow accustomed to the new aligners, so speech may be slightly impaired for a short while. The teeth soon become used to the aligners and any discomfort will eventually cease.
A.When your dentist can confirm that you are eligible to receive Invisalign after the initial consultation, the following steps will be taken:
A. Treatment usually starts from £2,500 but for milder cases, it can start from only £1800. The treatment cost is completely dependent on the patient’s specific requirements, so expect to pay more for complex cases.

My wife and kids have been patients at Old Court for ages and have always been complimentary of the staff. I became a regular’ patient a few years ago and wish I had done so sooner! Everyone is so friendly and helpful and Rishi has the best chair-side manner of any dentist I’ve ever had. He always takes time to explain any issues and the options available to remedy the problems. His assistants are always cheerful and very considerate. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this dental practice!!
