Orthodontic Treatments – A smile can change everything
Your confidence. Your outlook. Your life. Here at Savernake Dental Practice we have a choice of state-of-the-art near-invisible Orthodontic treatments to straighten your teeth.
Invisalign is one of the leading edge Orthodontic Treatments that straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
Comfortable, clear and removable – Invisalign transforms your smile without disrupting your life. Something that over 3 million people worldwide have already discovered. Because Invisalign aligners can be removed at any time during treatment, you can eat whatever you want, maintain good oral hygiene, and choose to remove them briefly for special occasions such as weddings or big meetings. Your lifestyle remains intact.
Unlike traditional fixed braces used in Orthodontic Treatments, there are no metal brackets or wires. Fixed braces can only be removed by trained professionals – this can hinder your ability to clean your teeth and gums effectively, and may limit what you can eat comfortably.
Aligners should be worn all the time during treatment, except when eating, brushing or flossing teeth. Typically, treatment can last between 9 and 18 months, depending on your treatment.
How much will it cost?
As with other types of orthodontic treatments, the cost of Invisalign is dependent on the complexity of your issue and your course of treatment. As a general rule the cost is comparable to traditional fixed braces.
Prices for Invisalign treatment are generally between £2,500 – £4,500. However, if only minor tooth movement is required, prices start from £1,500.

Other people will hardly notice you are wearing a splint, because the ClearSmile Aligner is transparent and smooth, without any brackets or metal components.
Because ClearSmile Aligners are smooth, comfortable and almost invisible, you’ll find that you forget your even wearing braces.
You can enjoy laughing, smiling and normal interactions without the worries normally associated with the more obvious fixed braces.
When eating or cleaning your teeth or aligners, you can simply take them out – quick and easy, whenever you like.

In the past anyone with crooked teeth have had only a few choices. Fixed braces and clear braces work well but are slow and can also be costly.
Because of this many people choose to have porcelain veneers instead. This often involves heavy grinding of the teeth to get them into the right position first. As a result many patients choose to do nothing and just live with it.
However, the Inman Aligner now gives us all a very real alternative. Because it works so quickly and efficiently, if you don’t like the idea of having brackets stuck to your teeth or waiting months and months for a clear brace to work, you can now have your front teeth straightened in as little as 6 -16 weeks.
With your custom built Inman Aligner your front teeth can be gently guided to an ideal position in weeks. and because it’s removable you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle. It can be removed at any time, allowing eating and brushing to continue as normal.
The Inman Aligner is a clear plastic retainer with two spring loaded alining bars that fit easily over the front four teeth. Unlike a regular brace, the Inman Aligner provides a constant gentle pressure on the teeth, easing them back into place far more quickly.
During the first consultation, an impression is made of the teeth and in the second, teeth are smoothed to make room for movement and the aligner fitted. For the duration of the treatment bi-weekly visits are required to review and adjust the aligner.
