Invisalign clear braces for straighter teeth
At Oh My Smile dental practice in Cheadle we provide Invisalign® Go as a simplified and discreet way to straighten teeth using custom-made, clear aligners. Invisalign is available for upper teeth only, lower teeth only or both upper and lower teeth.
Unlike traditional fixed braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed at any time, so patients are able to maintain good oral hygiene and eat what they like throughout the treatment.

As with all of the orthodontic treatments available at the practice we offer a free, no obligation consultation so that you can discuss how you feel about your teeth and what you want from your teeth straightening treatment. As well as deciding whether Invisalign is suitable for you, the likely treatment costs and an approximate time frame.
Invisalign uses a virtual 3D treatment plan (ClinCheck®) to show the series of movements your teeth will go through over the course of the treatment. This allows you to see right from the start, before your aligners are made, what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of the Invisalign treatment plan.
You can expect to wear each aligner for about two weeks before replacing with the next in the series. As you replace each aligner your teeth will move – little by little, week by week. You will experience a feeling of pressure when a fresh aligner is fitted, but this is a good sign the treatment is working.
We will monitor your progress every six weeks or so and make any adjustments you may need. As the aligners only work while you are actually wearing them, we recommend they are kept in place for at least 22 hours per day, removing only for eating and cleaning.
Depending on the complexity of your case, treatment time can take from 3 to 7 months. As with all teeth straightening methods, you will need to wear a retainer following treatment to prevent your teeth moving back to their original position.
