Simpli5 is an aligner system which involves wearing a series of aligners to gradually straighten the teeth.

Treatment with Simpli5 involves wearing a series of aligners to gradually move the teeth into the desired position. As the name suggests, there is a maximum of 5 aligners. If you wear aligners on the top and bottom teeth, there will be a maximum of 10 aligners.

Each aligner should be worn for between three and four weeks and then replaced with the next in the series. Treatment should be complete after the last aligner has been worn for three or four weeks.

What are the advantages of Simpli5?

Simpli5 is an ideal treatment for people who have very minor orthodontic problems, giving them the option to improve their smile without having to wear bulky, unattractive braces. The aligners are practically invisible to other people and work very quickly, with treatment often complete within 20 weeks. The aligners are designed to be as comfortable as possible and they can be removed, which offers the patient greater flexibility and allows them to enjoy better oral hygiene.

Who can benefit from Simpli5?

Simpli5 is not suitable for everyone, but it is regardless beneficial in the following circumstances:

How long does treatment take?

Are the Simpli5 aligners painful?

A combination of teeth that could only be described as reminiscent of a broken piano, were only worsened when I broke my front tooth, throwing my face at a granite bolder whilst hiking! Like most people living with teeth that quite literally, were nothing to smile about, it had been my intention to get them straightened, and in the case of the broken tooth, crowned, as soon as possible.

If you are reading this, you probably already know that by getting your teeth straightened, you're going to notice a huge difference and love the results...

Before and after photographs always look good. They wouldn't be shown otherwise. Mine are no different. I'm really delighted with the outcome. But photographs can only depict results, and show nothing about how they were achieved. Like a maths exam at school, the correct result is of little use without knowing the workings. In my opinion, the workings don't come any better than they do at BDS. I visited a few places before deciding on my treatment. The decisive factor for me was the personnel, and I made an excellent decision on that basis. Dr Khaira is simply one of the most outstanding professionals I have ever had the pleasure to meet...
