Teeth Straightening (Orthodontics)

At SW Smiles we offer teeth straightening for both adults and children. We can provide both conventional (train tracks) and invisible braces to suit your requirements.

Depending on the extent of teeth movement required, lingual braces can be made. Lingual braces are fitted on the backs of teeth, and aren't visible when you smile.

Invisible braces are also available. Called Invisalign, these braces are removable so you can eat and drink easily. And oral hygiene can be well maintained. There are no metal wires so they're comfortable to wear.

Invisalign® is a series of clear plastic aligners that move your teeth incrementally over 6-18 months. Each aligner is worn for about 2 weeks and not only looks almost invisible but offers the added benefits of flexibility and convenience. The aligners are removable, meaning you can take them out when eating, maintain oral hygiene, or just when you want to look at your best. With Invisalign®, life doesn’t have to come to a standstill just because you are improving your smile!

At SW Smiles, Battersea SW8, Invisalign® is a low maintenance regime which entails;

  1. Initial diagnostic consultation with the dentist to design your treatment schedule, discuss costs and answer any queries you may have.

  2. If you decide to go ahead with the Invisalign®, we’ll get you back to take impressions and photos of your teeth. These are sent to the Invisalign® Laboratory and a “Clinicheck” (a computer generated programme) is then sent back, which you can view on the television at the practice. This “Clinicheck” is tailor made for you to demonstrate movement of your teeth and what you can anticipate by the end of the treatment.

  3. Once the “Clinicheck” has been established and confirmed with you, the laboratory will make a series of aligners that will be unique to your teeth.

  4. You will need a short review every 2-4 weeks with your Invisalign® dentist to ensure your treatment plan is on track.

The benefits of Invisalign® include;

  1. Transparent, almost invisible aligners – no one needs to know you are having treatment carried out!

  2. Comfort – no wires or metal brackets mean no mouth ulcers, scratches or other mouth irritation

  3. Convenient – you can take out the aligner whenever it is not convenient such as when out socialising, during sports activities or eating

  4. Improved Oral Hygiene – since the aligners are removable, you can keep up your usual high standard of brushing and flossing

At SW Smiles we provide the revolutionary Inman AlignerTM orthodontic treatment. The aligner is a removable tray that corrects crowding, spacing, crowding and rotation of the anterior teeth. Inman AlignersTM can give you the straight teeth you’ve always dreamed of in a relatively short time period, without harming your teeth with other invasive treatments.

The Inman AlignerTM works by applying constant, yet gentle pressure with an aligner that resembles the traditional spring retainer. You can see results within 6-14 weeks and because they are removable appliances the Inman AlignerTM can fit easily into your day to day life.

The benefits of an Inman AlignerTM include;

  1. Removability                                   

  2. Oral hygiene is easily maintained

  3. Short treatment time

  4. Only one appliance
