If braces aren’t your thing, then you will be pleased to hear that we also offer Invisalign. Invisalign is a series of aligners that straighten your teeth gradually over time and can be removed at your convenience, or when you need to eat or brush your teeth. The simple fact is that straight teeth are healthy teeth. This is because they are much easier to clean and have fewer hard to reach places that your toothbrush just can’t get to. Not only that, but they help to prevent the onset of gum disease and can vastly improve the quality of your bite and your jaw’s shape and function.
When you come to see us for your consultation you will experience superior care and we will give you a detailed description of what you need to know about adult orthodontics.
Invisalign Adult Orthodontic Treatments
Invisalign is an adult orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear aligners to straighten your teeth over the course of just six months up to a couple of years. The fact that they can be removed at your convenience and have a discreet appearance are just some of the reasons why Invisalign treatment is so popular with adults.
Oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment can sometimes be a bit of a hassle, but with Invisalign, you simply remove the clear retainer and brush your teeth as you usually would. Unlike traditional braces that use wires and brackets to address your crooked or misaligned teeth, Invisalign uses a custom-made mould to shape your smile over time and give you the straight smile you deserve. You will receive a new set of aligners every two weeks. There is also far less irritation within the mouth as they are free of the harsher elements of traditional braces. You will need to wear them for about 22 hours a day for the best possible results. The clear aligners gently push your teeth into their desired position.
Everybody has a unique case and thus every patient will have different outcomes and length of time they will need to wear their clear aligners. Generally, Invisalign treatment requires around 12 months to be effective.
Tooth Coloured Braces
Tooth coloured braces are an attractive option for those who are looking into adult orthodontics. Whether it’s because your job may require a less obvious appearance, or you simply want to take the attention off of them, tooth coloured braces offer a far less obtrusive look to them. They are made using the best ceramic materials and provide superior durability, strength and performance for the entirety of your treatment.
Tooth coloured braces are easily removed at the end of your treatment, can be worn while playing sports and are designed with comfort in mind. We can make them appear totally white using ceramic brackets, white or tooth coloured arch wires and non-staining ligature wires, meaning that people will barely even notice them!
