Invisible Braces

Contact us today for the perfect smile.

  • Teeth are aligned effectively
  • No sign that braces are being worn
  • More comfort than traditional braces

Invisible braces are created using clear, almost see-through plastic which are fitted to the backs of your teeth, rather than the front. This allows invisible braces to straighten your teeth effectively yet discreetly, as they are far harder to notice than traditional metal braces.

We know that both adults and younger people can be self-conscious when it comes to using braces for straightening teeth. Luckily, the days of the traditional, metal train track braces are over.

Traditional metal braces are often seen as unsightly, and they can be uncomfortable to wear. This can often cause people to be reluctant to have their teeth aligned at all.

Today, there are several options available to patients of all ages who want orthodontic treatment but dread the idea of metal train track braces.

Invisible Braces at the Neem Tree

Invisible braces could be the answer, as they can be fitted without it being obvious that any braces are even being worn.

Invisible braces work in largely the same way as fixed metal braces do. A wire is attached to the teeth via brackets. By gently and gradually tightening the wire, invisible braces slowly pull the teeth into their proper position.

However, by using clear plastic brackets which are fitted to the back of the teeth, they are almost impossible to notice in normal circumstances. Our invisible braces are subtle, effective and can give you the smile you’ve always wanted without anyone even noticing you’re having treatment.

Learn more about invisible braces

What are invisible braces?

The term ‘invisible braces’ refers to any type of orthodontic treatment that is less noticeable than big metal brackets and wires on the front of your teeth. Among the various brands of invisible braces, there are a few popular ones that you can choose from. Book at a consultation and ask your dentist what options are available to you. 

How long does the process take?

Your treatment will usually take between 10 and 24 months for the whole process to be completed. The time of your treatment varies from person to person. Based on your first consultation, your orthodontist should be able to tell you how long your treatment may take based on initial examinations of your teeth.

How are invisible braces put on?

Invisible braces are created from clear plastic which is what makes them ‘invisible’ and are fitted to the back of the teeth rather than the front. This ensures that only the person wearing the braces is aware that they are there. 

Impressions of a person’s teeth are taken at the dental surgery. They are then sent to the laboratory where 3D imaging is used to create invisible braces that are designed to be a precise fit for the individual. 

Invisible braces are not suitable for all people who want to get their teeth straightened. This is why an orthodontic consultation is the first stage of the process. If Invisible braces are not suitable for you, your dentist will be able to recommend other teeth straightening treatments that will work better for your individual circumstance.

Don’t worry, there are plenty of options! Our Neem Tree specialists will be able to discuss all options that are available to you and advise you on which type of braces is the best option for your situation.

How many visits will it take?

The process of applying the invisible braces on to your teeth will only take one appointment. You will however need to go visit the dentist throughout the treatment, this is usually every 6 weeks.

Will I need to be sedated or require local anesthetic?

A local anaesthetic is not required for this treatment. 

Do Invisible braces hurt?

Invisible braces will cause some pain or discomfort to begin with when they are first fitted. This is only during a short adjustment period after the braces begin to move the teeth. The pain will not last long, it will fade soon after the teeth adjust to wearing them. 

Advantages of Invisible braces.

  • They look better than metal braces
  • Comfortable to wear 
  • Require fewer adjustments than traditional meal braces
  • They are designed specially for your convenience

What are the alternatives to Invisible braces?

Contact our practices in Wandsworth, South West London or Esher, Surrey to discuss the best way to straighten your teeth.

Am I too old for Invisible braces?

You are never too old to have your teeth straightened with us here at the Neem Tree. The first step in the process is to make an appointment with the orthodontic specialist, for a consultation. If you are worried about how braces would look on a person of your age, invisible braces would be the perfect option for you!

How do I clean my teeth while wearing Invisible braces?

Wearing braces is only half the job, during your treatment you will need to take care of your teeth by maintaining proper oral hygiene. It is challenging to brush your teeth when you have braces on. 

In order to keep your teeth clean there are several tips you should incorporate in your routine. Remember to rinse your mouth with water before you start brushing your teeth. Doing this will help remove any loose food particles that make be stuck in your braces and will make brushing a lot easier. When you are brushing, make sure that you do not apply too much pressure. More pressure does not mean you are doing a better job in cleaning your braces, in many cases, brushing too strongly can actually damage your teeth and braces in the long run. 

Make sure you brush your teeth at a 45 degree angle. Gently brush the brackets and the wire. You can buy special, interdental brushes from our Neem Tree shop. These will help you navigate around brackets and wires in order to clean them thoroughly. 

Be sure to brush at least twice a day and try to rinse your mouth out with water after every snack. Use floss and small interdental brushes once a day to clean around each bracket and in between the teeth and wires to ensure you are brushing to the best of your ability.

Will I need a retainer after my treatment?

Yes, you will need to wear a retainer after your treatment to stabilise your teeth after they have moved into the desired position. Your orthodontist will tell you how long you will need to wear your retainers for after your treatment has ended. 

Why are invisible braces a good choice?

Invisible braces are created from clear plastic and are fitted to the back of the teeth rather than the front. This means that only the wearer can tell that braces are being used. Invisible braces are personal to the individual. Impressions of a person’s teeth are taken at the dental surgery. They are then sent to the laboratory where 3D imaging is used to create invisible braces that are designed to be a precise fit for the individual.

Invisible braces are not suitable for every person who needs to have their teeth straightened. This is why an orthodontic consultation is the first stage of the process. Speak to us at the Neem Tree and we will discuss invisible braces with you. We will advise you about whether this type of braces is the best choice in your situation.

How long does the process take?

It usually takes between 10 and 24 months for the process to be completed, but time-scales vary from person to person.

How many visits to the dentist will be needed?

You will normally need to visit the dentist every 6 weeks throughout the course of the treatment.

Will I need a local anaesthetic?

A local anaesthetic is not required for this treatment.

How do I start the process of having invisible braces fitted?

The first step in the process is to make an appointment with the orthodontic specialist, for a consultation. They will talk to you about what you can expect from the treatment and whether it is the best choice for you.

How many appointments will I need?

The number of appointments required will vary greatly from patient to patient and depends on a number of factors.
