The lowdown on Invisalign braces

Let’s face it, crooked, misaligned teeth are not teeth at their best. Individually your teeth may be perfect, but if they are not neatly lined up their beauty is lost. Not only that but your misaligned teeth be difficult to clean, which can lead to all sorts of unwanted dental hygiene issues.

Maximum comfort and safety

Choosing Invisalign clear braces in Orpington is the right option for reducing damage to your teeth. Invisalign aligners are smooth and custom-made to fit your teeth. When properly fitted, your gums and other sensitive areas in your mouth will not hurt when wearing them. The brackets of traditional wire and metal braces are attached to the surface of your teeth, which can lead to demineralisation and damage to the tooth surface. Invisalign aligners will not do this. So long as you remember to brush and floss after each meal your teeth are at no risk of damage.


Invisalign aligners are so thin, 0.3mm, that they disappear from view once they are snapped on over your teeth.

When you choose Invisalign braces in Orpington, you will receive a comprehensive, computerised treatment plan. This means you know exactly what to expect and how long you will need to wear your braces.
