Adult Tooth Straightening (Clear Aligner)
Aligners are thin clear slightly flexible plastic ‘mouth-guards’ which fit closely over the teeth. A series of aligners is used to move the teeth incrementally according to a treatment plan developed by the dentist. Aligner appliances are ideally suited to adult patients whose life-style or work commitments make it difficult for them to wear more visible conventional fixed appliances.
Typically, 6 to 15 aligners are made to move teeth
Treatment time is usually between 3-6 months
Cost is between £800 and £2500 depending on how many aligners
are needed, typically £1500
They must be worn for all of the night and nearly all day long!
