Invisalign

Popular with dentists and patients worldwide, Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit each patient’s teeth perfectly, with treatment carried out to the highest possible standard. Invisalign consists of a series of nearly invisible, transparent, plastic, removable aligners that patients change every 7-10 days. As they replace each aligner with the next one in the series, their teeth will move little by little until they have reached their final position, as prescribed by the dentist. Invisalign aligners are created with the aid of 3D technology for maximum precision.

Unlike metal braces, Invisalign braces in Leeds are discreet, enabling patients to hide that they are undergoing treatment. Invisalign aligners can be easily removed for eating and brushing the teeth; however, patients should wear them at least 20-22 hours per day for effective results.

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is a removable teeth straightening device that is fitted to the teeth. The mechanism consists of spring-loaded aligner bars that gently guide the teeth into their optimal position. The Inman Aligner is very discreet and can achieve a straighter, more even smile in just a few weeks. It can be removed so that patients can eat and brush their teeth as they normally would. After treatment, patients will need to wear a retainer to prevent their teeth from relapsing.

The Inman Aligner is ideal for patients whose upper or lower front teeth are crowded or protruding. This removable device is designed to move only the front teeth and does not affect the bite. By straightening and aligning those teeth, the Inman Aligner will protect teeth from decay or staining associated with overlapping or gapped teeth.
