At Higher Lane Dental Practice we offer a range of Invisalign® braces, Invisalign® i7, Invisalign® Lite, Invisalign® Full and Invisalign Teen®.
The new addition to the Invisalign family, Invisalign® i7 is specifically designed to achieve minor tooth movements in patients with minor crowding, spacing or orthodontic relapse.
Invisalign® Lite is the ideal clinical solution for those who want an affordable way to improve their smiles. It can be used for simple corrections of up to 2mm crowding or spacing, and for improving the position of teeth prior to cosmetic procedures, such as veneers, crowns, composites or whitening. Using Invisalign® treatment prior to other procedures results in less enamel reduction and produces better tooth profiles. The treatment time is shorter (maximum 6 months using up to 14 aligners) and more cost effective.
Invisalign® Full aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference to your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that because the aligners are clear, most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
As with adult aligners, Invisalign Teen® aligners are made of clear plastic and are virtually invisible, a feature which allows self-conscious teenagers to be able to smile with confidence for school pictures, team photos and party snaps.
Just like the adult Invisalign system, Invisalign Teen® moves teeth gradually with each set of plastic aligners. As teenagers are always on the go, Teen aligners also come with embedded blue wear-indicators which fade in colour when the next set of aligners are needed. They are also specially designed to cope with eruption of canines, second premolars and molars.
As the aligners are made of plastic, there are no metal wires or brackets such as those found on traditional braces. Subsequently, Invisalign® aligners are virtually free from the discomfort and pain often associated with fixed braces.
Invisalign® aligners are removable, making them easy to clean and maintain better oral health. It also means that playing sports and musical instruments is not a problem. Another great feature of the Invisalign Teen® system is that you will get six free replacement aligners in case any get lost, damaged or misplaced.
Will Invisalign ®work for me?
Invisalign® invisible dental braces can be used to correct a variety of common issues such as those listed below:
Overcrowding - Insufficient space in the mouth can make it difficult to clean your teeth efficiently. This can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Invisalign® braces can be used to reduce overcrowding of teeth.
Widely spaced teeth - Small-sized or missing teeth, continued growth of the jawbone, tongue protrusion or genetics can all lead to tooth-related diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis (which can result in tooth loss). Invisalign® treatment can be used to successfully close the gaps between your teeth.
Crossbites - When the top and bottom jaws are not aligned, the upper teeth bite down on the inside of the lower teeth, causing discomfort. This can happen throughout the mouth and if left untreated, can lead to tooth erosion, gum disease or bone loss. Invisalign® invisible dental braces will straighten your bite.
Overbites - Top teeth overlapping and protruding over the bottom teeth can cause gum irritation, unusual wear of the lower front teeth and jaw or joint problems. Invisalign® treatment will gradually bring your upper and lower teeth back into line, correcting your overbite.
Underbites - Lower teeth protruding out past the front teeth can impair the proper functioning of the front teeth or molars, and if left untreated, can result in tooth wear, chewing problems and pain in the jaw and joint. Invisalign® braces can be used to align your upper and lower teeth to correct your underbite.
How much does Invisalign® cost?
When considering any form of dental procedure, price is an important factor. The cost of Invisalign® braces will be dependent on your specific needs, such as the extent of your dental problem and how long your treatment will last.
Higher Lane Dental Practice offer patients a consultation for Invisalign® treatment. This enables us to assess the problems that you have with your teeth and to discuss potential Invisalign® treatment plans. The cost of Invisalign® braces is comparable to, or in some cases lower than, the cost of traditional fixed braces. We offer Invisalign® treatment packages from £1,100.

We also offer Invisalign Lite®, which is used to correct more simple problems. The treatment time is shorter and is more cost effective, making it the ideal solution for those who want an affordable way to improve their smiles.
Will invisalign fit in my life?
Invisalign® removable braces for adults and teens will give you a happier, healthier smile with minimal disruption to your daily routine.
The Invisalign® treatment process involves using a series of removable aligners that are exchanged every two weeks for the next set of aligners in the series, thereby gradually moving your teeth into the desired position. Invisalign® braces are removable braces and are barely visible when worn. They're made from clear plastic so there's no metal wires or brackets that so often lead to pain and discomfort.
Used to correct a variety of issues, Invisalign® has numerous advantages over fixed braces. Because the aligners are removable, you can maintain good oral hygiene during the treatment process.
Invisalign® braces don’t just straighten your teeth, they work wonders for your self-esteem, giving you the confidence to show off your new smile with pride!
