Invisalign

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign are virtually invisible braces. They transform your smile without disrupting your life.

They are the perfect solution if you just want to adjust a small number of crooked teeth to create a straighter smile. This can be done simply.

Invisalign can also achieve great results in more complex cases.

There are plenty of options when it comes to braces (orthodontics). Invisalign is one of the easiest treatments to change your smile without affecting your lifestyle. One of the benefits of removable braces is that your teeth are easier to clean.

How does it work?

Invisalign look similar to clear, plastic mouth guards. They’re custom made for your teeth and replaced every two weeks. They gradually move your teeth into position by putting a small amount of constant pressure on your teeth to move them gently into place.

How long does it take?

The total treatment time varies for each person and how many hours each day you wear it for. The speed and success of the braces depends on you and how long you wear it each day

We recommend you wear it for at least 22 hours a day. Sounds like a long time but it’s still way superior to the old-fashioned braces.

Is it comfortable?

The aligners are comfortable, practically invisible, and also removable. It’ll probably feel strange at first, possibly a little uncomfortable. However, you will get used to it in a few days or within a week. Just think of the end result… a beaming smile.

Tell me more…

Invisalign could work for you. It’s a good idea to make an appointment with Dr Wood. She’ll take you through all the options and work out with you what’s the best solution for what you want to achieve.

Trish | Invisalign

Trish is definitely your caring mum and daughter who put herself last.

It has been an absolute pleasure to transform Trish’s smile.

We started out with Invisalign and bleaching. Then placed 2 composite veneers on the small peg shaped incisors.

Fixed Braces

Fixed braces can sometimes be the best solution to your dental problem.

They are set in place and work their magic.

Usually a great option for kids and teenagers. No thinking about what they need to do and no risk of losing aligners.

At each visit we’ll check your kids are cleaning their teeth properly.

Braces for children

It’s a big decision when considering braces for children. It can affect their lifetime
smile so we want to get it right.

Sometimes we need to act early when kids are still growing, other times we need to
wait until they are nearly fully grown.

It depends on the child and their particular orthodontic problem. Dr Wood is here to help you work out the best solution for you and your child.

Ben | Braces

Ben lost some of his baby teeth out of sequence so there wasn’t going to be enough space for all his permanent teeth. If we did nothing, Ben would probably have to get some teeth taken out as a teenager.

While Ben was still young we placed some retainers on his teeth. As soon as his permanent teeth (canines) came through we used fixed braces. The braces realigned Ben’s teeth successfully.

Ben called his canine teeth his ‘fangs’. Canines are the slightly pointed teeth on each side of the front teeth. We offered to round off the edges but he wouldn’t hear of it. Either way, the end result is fantastic.

Ben now has a beaming smile and a great set of natural teeth

Are fixed braces a simple solution?

Braces might look simple, but there’s a lot of planning before we start.

We take photographs and do X-rays and impressions so we can plan the treatment carefully.

The length of time it takes for braces to do their magic can vary slightly for each patient.

We’ll be with you every step of the way to make sure the braces are working as they should be.
