Why choose Invisalign?
At Forma, under the expert care of Invisalign Clinical Speaker and Platinum Elite Dentist, Dr Raj Kumar, Invisalign can give you the smile you've always wanted. It works through a series of removable, comfortable and invisible aligners (braces) that are changed every two weeks; so you can smile more during your treatment, as well as after!
Dr Kumar has created over 650 beautiful smiles with Invisalign in London alone.
With Invisalign we can; close gaps, push in or out your teeth, rotate teeth and even reverse the thumb sucking syndrome.

The aligners are clear which makes them hardly noticeable, therefore throughout your treatment you will have no reason to feel self conscious. Smile, laugh and talk as usual... people will be surprised to hear you're wearing braces!
Because aligners have no metal or sharp edges but instead are smooth, they will not cause any mouth abrasions or discomfort. Also the aligners move the teeth gently so that you don't suffer from pain or headaches.
With the expertise of our Platinum Elite Invisalign Dentist and using revolutionary 3D computerised systems we are able to plan and show you your entire Invisalign treatment and allow you to visualise your final smile. Dr Kumar plans all your treatments individually to your specific needs, whether you are getting married, a business professional or just shy, Dr Kumar can personalize Invisalign for you.
Aligners are easily removed so you can eat whatever you want throughout your treatment. You can leave them in for drinking even for drinking coffee or red wine.
As aligners are removable, brushing and flossing can be carried out as normal, this is essential in maintaining healthy gums. Therefore, Invisalign is a much healthier orthodontic treatment.
With no metal wires or brackets it means you spend less time at the dentist as fewer adjustments are needed, you will only need to visit Dr Kumar every eight weeks. Aligners are very easy to clean and do not stain. Invisalign is an easy, hassle-free treatment, which will fit naturally into any lifestyle.
How does Invisalign work?
At your first appointment Dr Kumar will take moulds of your teeth as well as digital X- rays and photographs.These are sent to the Align Technology Inc. laboratory in Santa Clara, California where, with careful planning and expertise your aligners are tailor-made to fit you perfectly.
Invisalign progressively straightens your teeth using a series of custom fit aligners.
Each aligner repositions and prepares your teeth into the desired position ready for the next aligner in the sequence. Aligners are changed approximately every two weeks (unless otherwise specified by Dr Kumar). For best results you are expected to wear your aligners all the time, only removing them to eat, brush or floss. ( You can actually leave them in for drinking).
During the treatment you will visit Dr Kumar approximately every eight weeks, during your appointment he will assess the progress of your treatment and discuss any follow up needs or queries.
Treatment length will vary depending on your individual case but the average Invisalign treatment is between 12 – 18 months.
