Simpli5 Invisible Braces

What is Simpli5?

Simpli5 is a fast and simple orthodontic aligner system primarily intended for minor correction of the front teeth. Simpli5 is a five-aligner system that can be used to treat both the lower and upper sets of teeth to give you the smile you desire and deserve.

Simpli5 clear braces are ideally suited for our patients who are interested in a little cosmetic enhancement. Simpli5 offers a system that does not rely on traditional brackets and wires, suitable for correcting minor cases of misalignment and spacing problems. It is also perfect if you would like a clear brace treatment but do not require the intensity of Invisalign invisible braces

Stages of Treatment

Step 1

You’ll have an initial consultation with our dentist and during this visit you will discuss the issues you have with your teeth and what kind of results you would like to see and whether Simpli5 is the treatment that will be best suited for you.

Step 2

Impressions of your teeth will be taken and digitised with 3D computer imaging technology. From these 3D images clear aligners are produced for you to wear.

Step 3

You’ll visit your dentist about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 3-5 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 3 and 5, but both will vary from case to case.

Step 4

Each aligner is worn for a period of about three to four weeks, during which minor tooth movement is slowly taking place. When the tray starts to get loose, it’s time for the next one; and so on and so forth until all the trays have been completed.
