Invisalign is the most established office aligner and offers the best care overall. It has been around since 1997 and treats more than 10 million patients worldwide. Invisalign aligners use buttons or elastics to treat more serious cases, and the treatment costs up to £5,500 and lasts between 3 and 12 months, on average. Homemade aligners are a convenient and more affordable alternative to Invisalign.
You start treatment remotely by taking impressions from home, and PlusDent provides convenient, quality care at a more affordable price. Initial examinations and any necessary improvements after treatment are also free of charge. Straight Teeth Direct is one of the UK's most popular home aligners, and if you live near central London, you can opt for a professional 3D scan (in person) to get a digital impression of your teeth. Straight My Teeth is the most affordable remote aligner available, and SmileDirectClub's clear aligners are also available elsewhere.
Invisalign requires you to wear the aligners 20 to 22 hours a day, removing them only for eating or drinking and for cleaning. ALIGNERCO aligners address limited alignment problems, while ClearCorrect offers in-office or home treatment with your own dentist or orthodontist.
