Invisalign Teen is a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment option which can straighten your teeth and improve your smile without anyone knowing you’re having treatment – not even your friends, unless you tell them of course.
The treatment uses a series of custom-made aligners which are manufactured from clear, medical-grade plastic. They’re safe to wear and comfortable because they’ve been specifically designed to your teeth using the latest 3D technology. But the best part of this treatment is that the aligners are removable. You can take them out to eat, brush and floss – and on those nights when there’s a party to attend or a school prom photo to pose for.
Invisalign Teen treatment starts with a consultation where we assess your teeth and take digital impressions of their position using our iTero digital scanner. This gives us an accurate picture of where your teeth currently sit and how much movement is required to get you a perfectly straight smile.
These 3D impressions are then used to make your Invisalin Teen aligners, which look like thin sports mouthguards. Over the course of treatment, as an Invisalign patient, you will be required to change your aligners every two weeks. Each new set has been manufactured in such a way to guide your teeth towards a straighter position.
For optimal results, it is recommended you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day, so this gives you time to take them out for meals and snacks, sports practices, music lessons and when brushing after meals.
Traditional metal braces with their metal brackets and archwires have been used in orthodontics for decades and for good reason. They get great results. But so too does Invisalign Teen. These aligners can be used for major and minor orthodontic cases and can achieve the same result as the traditional appliances.

The results exceeded anything I could have hoped for – I just could not stop staring at my teeth. Alastair has given me the confidence to achieve personal & professional goals that I previously considered to be out of my reach. Most importantly, he has lifted the suffocating burden of being ashamed to smile. These days, you can’t wipe the smile off my face!
I am very happy with the result and this time I have fixed retainers, so my smile will stay as it is forever. I thought Alastair was very efficient. He explained everything to me and everything he said would happen was exactly what happened. He has lovely surgeries and the staff are very friendly. I would happily give Pallant Orthodontics 10 out of 10.
My poor bite had never bothered me in the past but it was a bonus of treatment to have a much more comfortable bite as well as a straight smile. Now I just go around grinning. It’s given part of me back.
