About Invisalign london (straightening teeth)
Orthodontic treatment is used to straighten or move your teeth to improve their appearance or function. It can also help to keep your teeth and gums healthy by spreading the pressure of your bite out evenly. Straight teeth are easier to clean and are less vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease.
Orthodontic treatment usually involves wearing a brace. This puts gentle pressure on specific teeth to move them into the right place. During this time, your orthodontist (a dentist who specialises in straightening teeth) will monitor you closely and make adjustments to the brace.
Sometimes, if there isn’t enough room in your mouth, you may need to have teeth taken out before starting orthodontic treatment.
Adults of any age can have orthodontics – you are never to old to improve your smile! In the past, patients looking to straighten their teeth opted for a fixed wire brace, often referred to as “train tracks”. Fortunately, due to recent innovations such as removable clear braces (Invisalign) and invisible lingual braces (Incognito) there are now more options for tooth realignment than ever before.
Types of orthodontics
Your Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As you replace each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position prescribed by your orthodontist.

Incognito™ braces (Invisible lingual)
The Incognito™ Lingual Bracket System is an advanced generation of brace that is hidden discreetly at the back of the mouth, not on the front like conventional “train tacks”. This allows you to go about your daily routine without feeling self-conscious.
Incognito braces are suitable for all age groups – children, adolescents and adults who want to correct the position of their teeth.
The brace is custom made for you to maximise comfort and ensure precise results. This is achieved by using the latest computer technology when creating the brace.
Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire that allows teeth to move more freely than ordinary braces. These use elastic bands to hold the arch-wire in place. There are several benefits including a much quicker treatment period and fewer follow up visits to your dentist. The slide method puts a softer force on your teeth, making the treatment much more comfortable but still maintaining the effective results that come with traditional braces.
Virtually invisible, Damon Clear has obvious advantages over traditional braces and aligners. They are part of the innovative Damon System, which combines tieless braces with high technology.
The brace itself is made from a transparent ceramic material that has a number of advantages over the traditional types of braces. Damon braces also have hygienic benefits as they attract less plaque than the elastics used in traditional braces.
Many people see a noticeable change not just in their teeth, but in their entire face. They call it the Damon System Bracelift™ – and it produces:
- A fuller, wider smile.
- Better facial balance and aesthetics.
- Smoother cheek contours which make narrow smiles look fuller and more inviting.
- Fewer dark triangles within the corners of your mouth.
- Straighter, less crowded and crooked teeth.
- Improved profiles, provider a more youthful.
Inman Aligners are a type of orthodontic appliance that can straighten or move your teeth to the desired position. Aligners are restricted to the level of movement that they can achieve and generally work better on misalignments of the upper and lower front teeth. They are not suitable for cases where the teeth are heavily crowded. After a consultation with our specialist orthodontist, we will be able to determine if you are suitable for teeth straightening treatment with the Inman Aligner.
