Invisalign Invisible Braces in Camden, North London
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a ground-breaking invisible brace system that is responsible for straightening over 7 million smiles since it’s launch in 2000. It has turned orthodontics on its head and completely transformed the way we move teeth.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, customised, removable aligners, which gradually and gently move your teeth into the desired position. The aligners are very comfortable and virtually invisible so they are really discreet – even up close. It’s a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth so whether you’re at work or out socialising people won’t be able to tell that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign is great for patients who are allergic to the metal used in traditional braces or for people who want to move their teeth while minimising anyone knowing. Because these braces are completely removable, you are able to eat or drink whatever you like during treatment. You can also brush and floss your teeth as you normally would.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
- It is the world’s most widely used Invisible brace system that has been around since 2000 and helped straighten more than 7 million people worldwide

What is the Invisalign treatment process?
We start by taking an advanced 3D scan with a piece of computer imaging technology called an iTero scanner. This scan creates a digital model on screen that allows you to see how your teeth will look at the end of the Invisalign process.
When you go ahead with treatment a specifically designed clincheck video showing the full process from start to finish will be designed and mailed to you so you can see exactly when and where your teeth move.
3 to 4 weeks laterthe custom made clear aligners for your teeth are then delivered directly from Invisalign, each designed to move your teeth bit by bit. On this day expect to be in the chair for approx 40 minutes to have all custom made attachments and any smoothing of teeth carried out before trying on your first pair of aligners!.
Each aligner is worn for one to two weeks before being replaced by the next one until we get the teeth adjusted to the right position. Monthly reviews are carried out The time taken to complete the treatment varies from person to person, depending on the complexity of the case.
Once your treatment it complete you will be given a set of retainers to ensure the teeth do not relapse. As well as conventional plastic retainers we also offer fixed wire retainers. With this treatment a wire is attached to the back of the front teeth to ensure there is no movement in the future.
