Invisalign FAQs

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom made to gradually straighten your teeth. Each Invisalign clear aligner applies gentle pressure to your teeth to slowly move them, until they have straightened into the final position prescribed by your dentist or orthodontist.
Why should I consider Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are completely clear and virtually invisible, with no train track brackets and wires. They’re comfortable to wear and completely removable, which means you can eat and drink whatever you like during treatment. You can also remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth, so you can maintain the very best oral hygiene. Invisalign aligners have straightened over 17 million smiles worldwide, and are backed by years of research and results - more than any other clear aligner.
Is Invisalign a popular treatment?
Invisalign is one of the most trusted teeth straightening treatments in the world. To date, more than 17 million patients have been treated with Invisalign across the globe. Dr. Sandeep Kumar, founder of the MiSmile Network, is a Diamond Apex Invisalign Provider, meaning he is one of the most experienced Invisalign doctors in the UK. Collectively as a network, we have completed more than 40,000 Invisalign treatments.
How much does Invisalign cost?
The MiSmile Network offers Invisalign treatment from just £28 per month, with flexible finance options.* Exact Invisalign treatment costs will depend on how much your teeth need to move, but typically fall between £2,500 and £4,500, depending on treatment options and complexity. You can find out your personal Invisalign treatment cost by booking a free consultation with your nearest MiSmile Network Invisalign provider.
Do I need to go to a dentist or orthodontist for Invisalign treatment?
Yes, Invisalign treatment is a dentist or orthodontist led teeth straightening treatment. This means your smile journey is carefully monitored to ensure you stick to your treatment plan, and any issues are picked up quickly.
Can I get Invisalign treatment on the NHS?
No, Invisalign treatment is not available on the NHS as it is considered a cosmetic dental treatment. However, at MiSmile we help make Invisalign affordable, and a straight smile could be yours from just £28 per month with finance!
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign aligners apply gentle pressure to move your teeth in stages. Each Invisalign aligner moves your teeth around 0.25mm, and you change your aligners every one to two weeks. The movement of each aligner is carefully worked out in your personalised treatment plan, so only certain teeth move at a certain time. This means you achieve results efficiently and comfortably.
Can teenagers or children have Invisalign treatment?
Yes! Many of our MiSmile Network practices straighten teenagers’ and childrens’ teeth with Invisalign. We also operate an orthodontic referral network to refer complex treatments to specialist orthodontists who provide Invisalign. If you’re looking for Invisalign treatment for a teen or child, please contact us via WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook or email at hello@mismile.co.uk, and our friendly team will help find your nearest provider.
What are Invisalign aligners made of?
Invisalign aligners are made of a strong medical grade, virtually invisible thermoplastic called SmartTrack material. Only Invisalign aligners are made from SmartTrack material, which has been specially engineered for the Invisalign system. This means Invisalign aligners can straighten your teeth more predictably, and are more comfortable to wear and easier to put on and take off.
How long will my Invisalign treatment take?
How long your Invisalign treatment takes will depend on how much your teeth need to move. Typically, treatment lasts between 4 and 18 months.  Book your free consultation to find out how long your Invisalign treatment will take.
Is Invisalign treatment painful?
Invisalign treatment should not be painful. You may experience some minor discomfort at the beginning of each new stage of treatment, typically described as a feeling of pressure. This is normal, and is a sign the aligners are working. Any discomfort should go away after a couple of days.
What can I eat while in Invisalign treatment?
Anything you like! Invisalign aligners are completely removable, so that means that you are free to eat and drink whatever you want. Just take your aligners out before eating and drinking and, to ensure good hygiene, you should brush and floss your teeth after you’ve eaten, before putting your aligners back in.
How often do I need to wear my Invisalign aligners?
You need to wear your Invisalign aligners 22-24 hours a day, to make sure your teeth move as per your treatment plan. You should only take your aligners out to eat, drink, brush and floss your teeth.
Will Invisalign affect my speech?
Most patients have no problems with their speech at all, however you may find there is a minor adjustment period while you get used to wearing your aligners.
Can I smoke or chew gum while wearing Invisalign aligners?
No. We advise that you remove your aligners for all meals, snacks, chewing gum or smoking to avoid breakage or staining, and to keep your aligners clean and bright.
How should I clean my Invisalign aligners?
We recommend using Clean'ners cleaning tablets every day to keep your aligners clean. These tablets dissolve in water and in just 15 minutes powerfully clean your aligners, removing bacteria, stains and odours. Don’t forget to brush your teeth after each meal and before putting your aligners back in to help maintain good oral hygiene too.
Do I need to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment?
Yes. After any teeth straightening treatment you will need to wear a retainer to make sure your smile stays perfect. Our clinics offer different retainer options depending on what works for you, like removable ones you can wear at night, and more permanent options too.
