Invisalign at Abbey House
Our Invisalign aligners can fix a large range of teeth position issues, by using a set of clear aligners which are custom made to your teeth and almost invisible. As you replace each aligner every 2 weeks, your teeth will gradually move into your final desired position without the discomfort of fixed braces and no one will know you are doing it!
Invisalign is committed to constantly developing the treatment it offers. Before you start your treatment with clear aligners, you will receive a personal ClinCheck, this is a virtual 3D computerised image, which will show you your teeth movements and final position.
If you are members of another practice or haven’t seen a dentist for a while we recommend a full dental health examination prior to any corrective procedures. At Abbey House Dental in Stoke-on-Trent, we use the analogy “to build a successful home the foundations have to be solid” and this is the same as for dental health. The gum condition is especially important during orthodontic treatment.
Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in the UK, if left untreated plaque will irritate the gums and lead to bone loss which in turn may result in the loss of a tooth or teeth. A course of hygiene treatment may be recommended.
If you have been refused orthodontic treatment on the NHS, Invisalign may be the perfect solution for you .
Here at Abbey house Dental, we are proud to be part of the MiSmile network. Where each practice that is a member of the MiSmile network is passionate about helping you create your perfect smile, and with our commitment to the very latest in teeth straightening and whitening techniques, we’re the perfect Invisalign provider for you!

This depends on the types of movements to your teeth we need to make, with the help of your clin check we can give you an estimate before you start. Average treatment time is around 12-18 months.
Moving your teeth, whichever system that you chose, can cause some aching in the teeth, this doesn’t last long but as your teeth move into their better position they can feel a bit ‘on edge’ initially after you change aligner.
No, each aligner is clearly numbered and every two weeks you change to the next number up.. simple.. and we are always on hand if any problems occur. They are extremely easy to wear and you just remove them to eat.
A retainer is something which is worn to hold your teeth into your new, improved position. If the retainers are not worn as instructed then your teeth might move back into the original position over time, they are a lifelong commitment from you, essentially you are protecting your investment in your new smile!
