Invisalign with Clear Braces Direct

It is very rare that people are born with perfectly aligned teeth. However, everyone associates a beautiful smile with straight teeth. There are many different teeth straightening options available at the dental practice and one of the most popular of these is invisalign. In the last few decades this treatment has become one of the most popular teeth straightening methods in the world. First introduced in 1997, since then it has helped correct more than 13 million smiles across the world continuing to be the treatment of choice for teeth straightening amongst patients and dentists alike. Invisalign is a clear and comfortable alternative to traditional braces ideal for the modern generation. It uses transparent BPA-free thermoplastic aligners, which are individually designed, manufactured and printed, to move your teeth into a neater formation over time. It is a modern approach to orthodontic treatment. It is suitable for teenagers, adults and the elderly, if they have healthy teeth and gums.

Many people are self-conscious about their smile but Invisalign is a perfect solution for those patients that have healthy yet misaligned teeth. It is also a great treatment option for patients who suffer from bite disorders. It is a quick, convenient and cosmetically appealing alternative to traditional metal braces and you are able to maintain a good dental hygiene routine throughout the treatment and undergo teeth straightening without drawing unwanted attention to your mouth. By brushing and flossing your teeth after meals, you can help ensure that your teeth are clean and white the whole time.

Frequently Asked Questions

A neatly aligned smile is very important for good dental health. If your teeth are crooked and wonky, bacteria is able to build up in your mouth, resulting in a range of dental health issues. This includes cavities and tooth decay. Cavities cause small holes in the teeth which can become bigger and damage the pulp of the tooth. This can be very painful and require treatment before it causes irreversible damage to your teeth. Bacteria, plaque and tartar also cause gum disease and periodontal disease. Periodontal disease begins with gum inflammation, if left untreated this eventually turns into a chronic infection causing damage to your gums, bone loss and eventually tooth loss. Bacteria in the mouth can also travel throughout the body via the circulatory system, affect your coronary arteries and infiltrate your organs resulting in an increased risk of heart disease and stroke. Teeth straightening with Invisalign can help reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss. When your teeth are neatly aligned there is less chance of bacteria or food particles to accumulate and hide in those hard to reach areas. They are easier to brush, floss and keep clean, free of decay and disease.

Misaligned teeth are also prone to chipping and if your teeth do not join properly this can create unnatural stress and uneven pressure when biting or chewing resulting in greater wear and tear. Bite disorders put uneven pressure on your jaw and this can cause pain not only in your jaws but also in your neck, ear and head. The same pressure can cause your gums and bone to recede resulting in root exposure and again possibly tooth loss. This can affect your mental health and overall well-being. By straightening your teeth at an early age or sooner rather than later with Invisalign at Clear Braces Direct you can prevent the development of such issues and you can maintain a healthy smile for life.
Teeth straightening with Invisalign will boost your self-confidence, transform the appearance of your smile and promote healthier teeth for life. With over 16 years of experience, and having corrected more than 7000 smiles, here at Clear Braces Direct we are a top Platinum Invisalign provider in Europe. Book a consultation with our dentist in either London or Newcastle and receive a free 3D iTero scan and personalised treatment plan to begin your Invisalign journey with Clear Braces Direct. We will make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy and strong and that Invisalign is suitable for you. At your free consultation our dentist uses an intraoral digital scanner to show you exactly what your teeth look like and we can also create a digital dramatisation of how the alignment of your teeth will change with Invisalign. We will send all your results and information to you online to help you make an informed decision; there is no obligation. Let us help you improve the appearance of your teeth and improve your dental health at the same time.
Once we have carried out the scan and put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you, you will be sent all the information online including a video treatment plan to talk you through the procedure. If you are happy with what we have to offer here at Clear Braces Direct then you make the payment and we can order the aligners for you. These will be delivered straight to your door and you may begin the process immediately or if you require attachments to hold the aligners securely in place then you may need to visit us for your initial fitting. A key advantage of choosing Clear Braces Direct for your Invisalign treatment is that the majority of the process is carried out in the comfort of your own home and you do not have to visit us in person at the clinic unless it is necessary for you. Each aligner is worn between 1 and 2 weeks at a time depending on your prescription. The aligners need to be in your mouth for approximately 22 hours of the day for optimal results. The aligners are flexible and can apply sufficient force to move the teeth in the same way as traditional braces except they are removable which means they are more convenient. Each of the aligners are designed to move your teeth by 0.25 mm after which the aligner will stop working and you will move on to the next aligner in the series. If you are compliant then more often than not within the first 3-months patients will notice an improvement in the alignment of their teeth and with our online monitoring system we can also make sure that the process is coming along successfully.
Invisalign aligners are clear and as the name suggests almost invisible in the mouth. They are designed to fit your teeth accurately. They are very thin and mould very closely to the teeth, therefore they are also comfortable to wear and easy to become accustomed to. They need to be removed for meal times and for all drinks other than water. Tea and coffee can stain your aligners therefore it is important that you remember to take them out before you have a drink. A key advantage is that there are no restrictions to what you can eat. If you take out your aligners then you are able to bite and chew as usual and enjoy all your favourite food. After your meal you will need to brush your teeth thoroughly, floss and make sure that your teeth are clean before you replace the aligners in your mouth, allowing them to continue to do their work. It is very easy to clean the aligners as they can be brushed with ordinary toothpaste and rinsed in warm water before being put back into your mouth. You can also soak them in a cleaning solution. It is important that you comply with the treatment plan otherwise the process may take longer and it can have a detrimental effect on the end results.
With orthodontic treatment many patients are concerned about pain or discomfort. With Invisalign, over the years patients have reported that it is not a painful treatment procedure at all. You may feel slight pressure in certain areas of the mouth and also when you change your aligners and move on to the next aligner in the series you may feel pressure in a different position in your mouth however this will subside within approximately 24 hours and you will become accustomed to each aligner in the series. In comparison to traditional metal braces Invisalign is a comfortable method of teeth straightening.
Both Invisalign and metal braces are highly effective at teeth straightening. Metal braces have been used for many decades whilst invisalign has become hugely popular within the last two decades. Adults are normally reluctant to undergo orthodontic treatment with metal braces because they are visible in the mouth and draw unwanted attention to the teeth. Because of this, so many adults avoided orthodontic treatment as a teenager or as a young adult and unfortunately faced greater dental complications later on in life. If you suffer from misalignment issues of the teeth and realise that you need to address these issues however you are looking for discretion, then Invisalign is the right choice for you. Invisalign is also a quicker and more efficient means of straightening your teeth with less appointments necessary at the clinic as it is most commonly used to treat mild or moderate dental issues which take less time to correct. Metal braces are better suited for those who suffer from a complex orthodontic case and one of the advantages is that they are able to apply a certain amount of pressure to each tooth whereas Invisalign aligners apply a uniform amount of pressure on all the teeth at the same time. Metal braces are also a more affordable teeth straightening option in comparison to modern orthodontic treatment procedures such as Invisalign and other invisible braces, however our payment plan makes the process affordable and easier to manage. Metal braces are also no stronger in comparison to plastic however Invisalign aligners are flexible and this works to their advantage.

Thanks to significant advances in dental technology there are many different types of braces available in comparison to a few decades earlier. By speaking to our dentist who will assess the health and alignment of your teeth you will be able to find out whether it is Invisalign that is the best option for straightening your teeth or weather you can find out about different types of braces that can help straighten your teeth and improve the health of your teeth and gums at the same time.
If misalignment issues of the teeth are unaddressed then they can cause expensive complications in the future. Replacing missing teeth, repairing a broken tooth or treating periodontal disease is expensive and time consuming. Speak to a dentist at Clear Braces Direct and find out about Invisalign to help improve your dental health and avoid the need for expensive dental work in the future.

Invisalign is an affordable method of teeth straightening with a price that depends on the extent of misalignment that needs addressing and the number of aligners that you require to straighten your teeth. At Clear Braces Direct we offer three different treatment plans depending on your orthodontic needs. Firstly Invisalign Lite is designed for mild or moderate misalignment issues of the teeth and focuses on straightening the front 6 teeth using up to a series of 14 aligners. After this, there is Invisalign Moderate which delivers clear aligner treatment to correct mild to moderate malocclusion without compromising on the superior features and functionality of Invisalign clear aligner therapy using 15-20 aligners. Invisalign Comprehensive + complex treatment plan is designed for those with complicated orthodontic issues which include overcrowding and bite disorders. This treatment plan consists of 20+ or more aligners. All our packages include weekly progress updates with our dental monitoring app/Invisalign virtual care and we will inform you whether to continue with the next aligner in the series or if you need to visit us at the clinic.

Unfortunately NHS funding does not cover invisible teeth straightening treatments like Invisalign. You can pay the full amount online or you can speak to us about a payment plan and make monthly, manageable payments instead.
Many patients find that they undergo orthodontic treatment when they are younger however during the course of life their teeth move out of place and they become crooked, wonky or overcrowded again. Sometimes wisdom teeth that erupt later in life can affect the alignment of your smile post orthodontic treatment but most of the time it is due to the lack of wearing a retainer or remembering to wear a retainer which can affect the alignment of your teeth. After your Invisalign treatment is complete you can choose which retainers are most suitable for you. Here at Clear Braces Direct we are able to offer you the Vivera retainer which is designed to be worn at night whilst you sleep. You can also speak to our dentist at Clear Braces Direct and find out about a fixed invisible retainer which can be fitted for you at the clinic as soon as you finish wearing the last aligner in the series and will help you maintain the alignment of your teeth for a beautiful, healthy smile.

Invisalign can be used in patients who have undergone orthodontic treatment when they were younger or it can be used as a stand-alone orthodontic treatment. To improve the appearance and health of your smile further you may wish to complete the transformation with teeth whitening and as part of your package you will receive a free teeth whitening gel to help you.
The cost anywhere can vary greatly based on multiple factors, including the severity of your case and the number of aligners required. In the majority of cases, the cost of this kind of tooth correction treatment is between £3,900 and £6,000. Book an appointment at our clinic for an exact quote!
No, the NHS does not cover the cost of this type of cosmetic dentistry. However, individual health insurance policies may partially or fully cover associated payments.
Invisalign London is often a less expensive choice than alternative kinds of teeth straightening options like traditional fixed braces. The prices will be based on the complexity of your case and the length of time that the aligners are worn. Combined, these factors are what usually make up the overall cost of orthodontics treatments.
This will depend on how many months you will need to undertake the treatment. Our team at Clear Braces Direct will assess your case, offer you an estimated treatment guideline and then hammer out a monthly cost before you make the decision.
Invisalign offers convenience and subtlety with no metal wires, and it can be effective in treating a variety of dental issues. If you have any hesitation, then the best way to determine whether this is the right solution for you is to consult with a dentist for an individual orthodontic assessment. However, most Invisalign wearers would agree that it has many advantages and lots of value. If you'd like to see the benefits for yourself, you can take a look at the photos on our website!
No, you don't. Typically, the average treatment time is in the range of 3-9 months, depending on your case. However, in more complex cases, you may have to wear your retainers slightly longer than the average person before your treatment process comes to an end, so call us if you'd like to hear a professional opinion in a consultation at our clinic.
Provided that your mouth is healthy and you can commit to the use of the aligners, no one is too old to be treated with Invisalign, but it may take slightly longer for you to get the result you are looking for.
There are very few disadvantages to using Invisalign aligners over metal braces, but some people have found that the sharp edges of the newly printed aligners can rub against their inner cheeks and their tongue, impeding their comfort. Our staff can remedy problems like this with dental wax and will always be on hand to ensure your aligners are comfortable to wear.
There are a few possible reasons, but the most common one is that the procedure was not complete as prescribed. To achieve the most effective result, it is important to wear the aligners as prescribed by our staff. If you fail to wear your aligners for this amount of time each day, or if you do not follow the treatment routine as directed, your smile may not move into the desired position, and gaps may not properly close.
It is normal for teeth to feel a little loose when you first start using your aligners, as the aligners are designed to apply gentle pressure to the teeth to move them into the position you want.

If they are constantly feeling loose or you are experiencing pain or discomfort while wearing the aligners, this may be a problem, and you should speak to your dentist for guidance.
Yes, it is recommended to wear your aligners for a minimum of 22 hours a day to help you achieve your dream smile. This means that you should wear the aligners at all times, including while you sleep, with the exception of eating, drinking (other than water), brushing and flossing. If you are not able to wear the aligners for the recommended amount of time, it may take longer for your treatment to be completed, and you may not achieve an outcome you are content with.
Not often; it is recommended to wear your aligners for 22 hours per day to achieve the desired results. Wearing the aligners for less than this amount of time may not be sufficient to achieve the desired look.
Yes, you can consume coffee or tea while wearing your aligners, but it is important to be mindful of how you do so to avoid staining or damaging the aligners. In most cases, dentists will advise you to remove the aligners to prevent them from becoming stained.
It is generally recommended to wear your brace for around 22 hours a day to achieve the results you want. If you've got to remove the aligners for a short period, such as to eat and drink (something other than water) or to wear a mouthguard for contact sports, that is generally fine. If you have to remove the aligners for a longer period, such as for a full day, it is important to consult us before doing so.
Yes, it is generally possible to kiss while wearing your aligners. However, it may feel a little different compared to kissing without aligners, as the aligners may affect the feel of your mouth. Some people may find that it is more comfortable to remove the aligners before kissing, especially if the kissing is particularly vigorous or if the aligners are causing mouth irritation.
You should remove the aligners before consuming alcohol or any other staining beverages. This will help to prevent staining and also allow you to clean your teeth more effectively. If you prefer to drink alcohol while wearing the aligners, you can try using a straw to minimise contact between the alcohol and the aligners.
It is usually recommended that you practice oral hygiene after every meal to help remove food debris and prevent tooth decay and gum disease. This is true whether or not you are wearing your aligners. However, it is especially important to brush and floss after meals when you are wearing aligners, as food particles can become trapped between the aligners and the teeth, which can lead to problems like decay and bad breath. You should have nothing to worry about so long as you follow this advice, but if you'd like further guidance about how to keep your aligners clean, consider speaking to a hygienist.
Yes, you can use toothpaste to remove plaque from your aligners. Toothpaste can help to remove plaque and food particles from the aligners and can also help to freshen your breath. Rinse the aligners under cold water to remove any visible food debris, then squeeze a small amount of toothpaste onto the aligners, being careful not to use too much. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush or one designed specifically for cleaning aligners to scrub the aligners thoroughly, paying particular attention to the area that touches the gums and around the side of the aligners. Without regular cleanings, plaque may begin to build up.
There are certain types of food and drinks that you should avoid while wearing aligners to prevent them from becoming damaged or stained. Foods that are sticky or chewy, such as gummies, caramel, and toffee, can become stuck to the aligners and may be difficult to remove. Food that is hard or crunchy, such as nuts, popcorn, and hard candies, can damage the aligners or cause them to become dislodged. Sugary beverages such as sodas can contribute to decay and also leave residue on the aligners, which can be tough to remove. When undergoing Invisalign, you should keep this in mind and pay extra care to your diet and oral health.
The usual recommendation is to wear your aligners for around 22 hours a day to achieve the desired results; this means that you should wear the aligners constantly, except when eating, drinking (other than water), or brushing. So, as often as you do these things! If you aren't sure whether you can remove them for longer, or have worries about their progress, get in touch with our team.
In general, the shortest treatment timing is likely to be a few months, although this can vary depending on the individual case. If you have mild misalignment or crowding, you may be able to achieve your new smile in a shorter time than an individual with complex dental issues. The team at our clinic will be able to answer any question you may have in more detail than a Google search, so get in touch with our receptionists and book in today.
Invisalign London can generally be completed within a shorter time for patients with mild misalignments or crowded teeth. It may be possible for you to achieve the desired look in as little as four months. However, the exact duration it takes to work can vary depending on the individual patient's needs and goals, so call us up and schedule an initial consultation visit at our clinic to find out more.
Generally, there is no best age for this procedure. Indeed, you can benefit from it from the age of around 13 years onwards, but due to trouble with motivation, children are often better candidates for traditional braces with wires. Clear aligners are considered a great option for adults and even teenagers, so get in touch with us today for more information!
When you have finished wearing invisible braces, you will have to wear retainers to prevent your teeth from reverting to their previous state. This will give your teeth a chance to set in their new positions and will prevent tooth movement.
Provided that you follow the aftercare advice relating to these aligners and you wear the retainer sets as directed, there should be no problems with relapsing.
Yes, it is generally recommended to wear retainers as a next step after completing treatment to help maintain the results. After the brace has moved your teeth into the desired positions, the muscles and ligaments in the mouth may try to move them back to their original place. Wearing retainers will hold your teeth in their new positions and stop them from shifting back to their old ones.
The length of time that you will need to wear your retainers will vary based on individual situations, and a member of our team will be able to offer you an accurate timeline. Some may be able to stop wearing retainers after a few months or a year, while others may have to wear retainers for longer.
Clear aligners are generally not painful. Patients may experience minor pain when they advance to the next set of aligners in the series, as the aligners apply gentle force to their teeth to move them into their new arrangement. This pain is typically short-lived, and over-the-counter pain medication offers a way to manage it.
No, in general, invisible braces should not mess up your bite. If they do, or you feel that an issue has worsened, then you should get in touch with us at Clear Braces Direct in London for a consultation appointment.

It is also worth noting that if you notice an issue with your bite while using this aligner, this may suggest that you are not using it as prescribed or as you should be, so you may need to get in touch with our team.

If for whatever reason, you experience any pain or discomfort that is severe or persistent, it is important to talk to your dentist. They can evaluate your situation, determine the cause of the pain and recommend the most suitable course of action to manage it.
There are cases where the aligners may temporarily affect a person's manner of speaking because the aligners may come into contact with their tongue, lips, and cheeks differently than they are used to. This can cause the wearer's voice to sound slightly different or like they have a lisp for a short period.

Any changes in your voice that may occur with clear aligners are temporary and resolve within a few days to a week. As the patient becomes accustomed to speaking with the aligners, their speaking should return to normal. Interestingly, singing with aligners can help you adjust quickly, but if you have any lasting questions, queries or concerns, please talk to us.
If you lose an aligner, it is important to speak to our staff as soon as possible. We can provide you with a replacement aligner and help you with the most appropriate course of action to ensure that your treatment stays on track.

In the meantime, you should continue to wear your current aligner until you receive a replacement from us. Do not skip ahead to the next aligners, as it is important to wear the aligners as prescribed to ensure that your teeth are moving efficiently.
If you've got an interest in teeth alignment procedures, it can be helpful to seek out an Invisalign Diamond Provider to ensure you receive excellent care from an experienced and qualified team.

This is a practitioner who has achieved a high level of experience and expertise in using these clear aligners. Diamond Providers are recognised by Invisalign for their professionalism and commitment to providing high-quality care and outstanding results using these treatments.

For Invisalign to name someone a Diamond Provider, that individual must meet certain criteria, such as having completed a certain number of cases, as well as participating in ongoing Invisalign education and training. Our dentist at Clear Braces Direct is a Diamond Provider, so we are the best there is for undertaking these aligners.
The aligners are made of a clear, medical-grade plastic called polyurethane resin. This material is durable and transparent, so it is virtually invisible when worn. The plastic aligners are custom-made for each patient, based on a smile assessment with 3D imaging technology and a digital treatment plan. The discreet aligners are designed to move your teeth into a new position over time.
