Invisalign®, FASTBRACES® and Inman Aligner™ are the modern-day solution to straight teeth. These innovative treatments will straighten your teeth quickly and safely.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign® is a discreet and easy way to straighten your teeth. The aligners are clear, comfortable and easy to remove so you can eat and drink, brush and floss your teeth whenever you need to. Best of all there are no metal brackets or braces so no one will know you are wearing them.

Invisalign® will straighten everything from underbite and deep bite to gappy or over-crowded teeth.

How does it work?

At the start of your treatment your dentist will use 3D computer imaging technology to create your personalised, complete treatment plan. You’ll be able to see the position of teeth now and how they’ll look at the end.

You’ll have a series of clear aligners – or Invisalign® braces – custom-made for your mouth. They’re designed to move your teeth little by little every day. You’ll wear each aligner for one or two weeks before moving on to the next in the series. By the time you reach the last brace you’ll have the smile you dreamed of.

What is FASTBRACES®?

Fastbraces® is a fast, safe, easy and affordable bracing system that is changing the field of orthodontics.

How does it work?

Traditional braces straighten teeth in two stages, usually taking about two years. In the first year, the crown of the tooth is moved and in the second year, the root of the tooth is moved. Fastbraces® is different because it uses an innovative triangular bracket and a specially shaped square wire to realign the root and crown at the same time.

How long does it take?

Treatment usually takes anything from three months to one year. However, some patients see results with Fastbraces® in just a few weeks.

Is Fastbraces® less painful?

University research has shown that because Fastbraces® uses low frictional force it is less painful than traditional braces.

What is the Inman Aligner™?

The Inman Aligner is a fast, safe and affordable way to straighten front teeth. And because it’s removable it will easily fit in with your lifestyle.

How does it work?

The Inman Aligner uses two bows that gently oppose each other to guide your teeth into their new position. These gentle forces are active over a large range of movement, which is why the Inman Aligner works so quickly.

How long does it take?

Treatment with the Inman Aligner takes anything from as little as six weeks up to around 18 weeks. Your dentist will be able to tell you how long it should take for you.

What’s involved in treatment with the Inman Aligner?

Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth so that your Inman Aligner can be custom-made to fit your mouth. Your dentist will then fit the aligner. You’ll need to wear it for 16-20 hours a day and visit your dentist for check-ups every 2-3 weeks.

As with other orthodontic treatment, once treatment with the Inman Aligner is complete you should continue to wear a retainer at night to maintain your straight smile.
