Hoburne Dental Practice is able to provide three types of near-invisible braces for cases of crooked, twisted or mis-aligned teeth. All treatment is assessed on a case-by-case basis.
When you begin your Invisalign treatment, you will wear each set of custom-made aligners in two-week increments.
As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will begin moving, little by little, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
Invisalign is a worldwide brand leader in straightening teeth which is virtually invisible. Over 4.5 million people worldwide have had their teeth straightened using this system. It does not rely on unsightly metal braces; instead it uses clear plastic aligners which are ‘see through’. The aligners are removed for eating and cleaning your teeth which means that they will not get in the way of you normal daily routine. Invisalign moves your teeth back to the position you always wanted them to be in by means of a series of clear custom made aligners.
If you would like to know more then please contact the practice for a free ‘Invisalign consultation’ with Peter Willy who is an approved Invisalign provider. At this appointment he will assess you to make sure your mouth is suitable for Invisalign treatment. He will explain your treatment to you in more detail at this visit.
If you would like to proceed further then a more detailed ‘Invisalign assessment’ can be arranged. Following this assessment you will then be able to see what the end result of your treatment will look like. This simulation is done by a 3D animated video showing how your teeth will move to achieve the end result that you desire. Photographs, impressions and x-rays will be needed as part of this assessment process.

An Inman Aligner is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely. It's ideal as a standalone treatment or to align teeth prior to further cosmetic options.
How does it work?
The Inman Aligner has Nickel Titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows that gently oppose each other, guiding the teeth into their new position. These gentle forces are active over a very large range of movement, which is why the Inman Aligner works so quickly.
The image (below) shows the squeeze effect of the two aligner bows on the front teeth. The inner bow pushes forwards, while the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth.
How long is the treatment with the Inman Aligner?
Most cases are completed within 6 - 18 weeks. Your Inman Aligner dentist will give you a realistic guide of what to expect.
By wearing a series of specially designed clear aligners the front teeth will be gradually be moved to a perfect alignment. The technicians will design a system which will move the teeth in the most effective way possible.
Clear aligners are almost invisible and are comfortable to wear for most patients, although some slight pressure may be felt during the first day of wearing.
It is important that these aligners are worn at all times except during meal or when drinking hot liquids.
Clear aligners and Inman Aligners are not suitable for all patients and a consultation is recommended to see if it will be suitable for you.
What's involved in Invisible brace treatment?
1. Book an appointment to speak to one of our certified dentists who will determine if the treatment is suitable for you.
2. Impressions are needed so that the lab can fabricate your custom made Aligner.
3. Initial fitting of the Aligner.
4. Wear the Aligner 16-20 hours a day
5. Regular checks every 2-3 weeks.
As with other orthodontic treatment, after treatment is completed with the Inman Aligner, retention is recommended for life to prevent relapse.
