Invisible Braces Invisalign
A beautiful smile is generally defined by the following:
- Straightness and symmetry of teeth
- Tooth proportion and smile width
- Spacing of teeth
- Shape, colour and fullness of lips
- Gum health and gum line
- Colour of teeth
Unlike traditional fixed braces, Invisalign clear aligners are removable and nearly invisible.
Treatment for Invisalign starts from about £1500 and we offer a range of payment plans to make the process manageable for you.
Invisalign in Rochford
Invisalign in Rochford is ideal for patients with moderate alignment issues or bite problems such as overbites, underbites and crossbites. At Oak Dental Rochford Dental Practice, you can choose from different types of Invisalign, which are designed to target a range of dental problems. For instance, Invisalign Lite is ideal for less complex alignment issues, whereas Invisalign Teen comes with special features for teenagers.
We would be happy to discuss your options and help you decide the best treatment based on your specific dental needs and lifestyle.
Invisalign is a different kind of braces system than you may be familiar with. Instead of metal brackets and wires pulling the teeth into position, it uses thin, clear mouth guards to gently nudge the teeth into place over time. Each pair of aligners is custom-made and specially designed to move your teeth.
As the aligners are clear, Invisalign is almost invisible: only a professional (or perhaps your mum) would notice you are wearing them. They are taken out for eating and cleaning, so are easy to maintain and to fit into your lifestyle.
Give us a call today and find out how you can benefit from these wonders of modern dental technology.
How does Invisalign work?
We can show patients their "digital smile" so they are able to see what their teeth would look like after orthodontic treatment even before we have started treatment, no more sticky impression material, the 3D scanner records the exact contours of the teeth while the patient can sit back and relax.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
Each patient is unique and for this reason, treatment times are different. In general, most people enjoy a straighter smile within 12-18 months on average with Invisalign in Rochford.
Will Invisalign fit my lifestyle?
With Invisalign, there is no need to change a thing in your daily routine. The aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed whether you wish to eat or brush your teeth through the day. Moreover, Invisalign appointments are not lengthy and can be coordinated with your schedule.

A: The 6 Month Smiles™ technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely using a brace that is attached to your teeth.

A: 6 Month Smiles™ use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. 6 Month Smiles™ utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with 6 Month Smiles™ braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with 6 Month Smiles™ orthodontics.
