This is an extremely popular system, originally from the USA. We are proud to offer the state of art Invisalign treatment at Parkfield Dental practice with nearly invisible braces for adults and teens to straighten their teeth.
Sometimes known as invisible braces, these clear aligners gently move the teeth into their desired position. Unlike standard braces, Invisalign is removable, meaning you can take it out to eat, drink and clean your teeth. It is virtually undetectable, which is what makes it so popular with adult and teenage patients who don’t want their treatment to be obvious to others.
The Consultation - Once we have examined and gone through everything and confirmed you’re eligible for treatment, we will take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth.
The Aligners - After being custom made you will receive a series of aligners to wear every day and change at home – on average every 1-2 weeks.
The Results - You will visit us around every 6-8 weeks to monitor progress and receive new aligners. After finishing your treatment plan, retainers will be required to maintain your new smile.
Up to 50% faster treatment times - With weekly aligner changes, you're on your way to the smile you want even faster.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Invisalgn work?
During the course of treatment, you will be provided with a series of aligners. Each aligner will make slight adjustments to your tooth position. When the aligners are placed on your teeth, they cause the teeth to gradually move from their current position to improved position. Each set of aligners are worn for 2 weeks at a time, as the teeth are moved gradually into their new and improved position. To ensure your treatment progresses on schedule, the aligners should be worn for 22 hours each day and removed for eating and cleaning.
What makes invisalign different from traditional braces?
It's a more comfortable and less intrusive way of straightening teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces with brackets and wires, Invisalign is very discreet and virtually invisible. This gives patients the confidence to smile and socialise as normal without feeling self-conscious. You can also take the aligners out for easy cleaning, brushing and flossing. The aligners shouldn't be worn for eating, so there’s no need to avoid certain foods. Traditional braces also require constant visits to the dentist for tightening. In contrast, Invisalign works effectively to keep the right amount of pressure on the teeth without the need for tightening. This means you won’t have to visit your dentist quite so often.
