If you are looking to have your teeth straightened, there are multiple systems that are available to do so. Depending on what you are trying to achieve, some systems my be more suitable than others. We offer free consultations so we can asses your teeth and identify what options are available to you. Not all systems we offer will be able to treat all cases as they have been designed to treat particular types of cases. What this means is, depending on the exact movements required to correct your teeth the most suitable brace for you will vary from patient to patient.
When we see patients we quite often hear they are looking for a discrete way to straighten their teeth. There is quite often a negative stigma attached with braces as patients don’t want to experience the “metal brace mouth” look. This very much refers to the traditional way of correcting teeth through metal brackets and wires. Fortunately times have progressed since then and systems have been developed more in line with not affecting a persons aesthetics during treatment.
One such way is through the use of clear aligners, such as the Invisalign system
Invisalign is a well known system from the USA. It consists of an aligner based system that will gradually correct your teeth over the course of treatment.
One of the main benefits associated with Invisalign is because they are made out of a clear plastic, which is very hard to be seen when worn. They are also removable so can be taken out for eating and drinking. This also allows for effective oral hygiene as they won’t get in the way of brushing. But for best results we do recommend they are worn for the majority of the day (as the longer they are out the longer it will take to treat you).
