This is often a favourable option for adults who have professional careers and don't feel comfortable wearing unsightly 'train track' braces for months on end. The technology behind invisible braces or orthodontics is highly advanced and often gives patients a much shorter treatment time, depending on their individual cases. Here is an overview of how they work:
They straighten teeth discreetly, and some can even be removed periodically, making them easier to fit around your hectic lifestyle.
They straighten teeth much more quickly than traditional braces, starting from as little as six months.
They are more comfortable than traditional braces because they use less force and modern wire technology.
What Do We Offer?
Our Orthodontics team offers Invisalign or clear orthodontic therapy to align any teeth that appear crooked.
They also have braces which can be placed behind your teeth so we can hide any unsightly appearance of metal brackets (also known as lingual braces).
What Are The Advantages?
Gone are the days of broken wires and flossing nightmares. Invisalign is a proven way to achieve healthy tooth movement with the ease of cleaning your teeth and without the unsightly appearance of metal brackets.
What Is The Process?
After providing a full examination of your teeth with radiographs and ensuring your teeth are healthy, Sophia our Consultant Orthodontist will find out exactly what you do not like about smile. Whether there is a bite or mal-alignment issues. She will take photos and scans of your teeth to analyse them further. Sophia will assess the 3D simulation of the proposed movement of your teeth and once approved, you will be invited to have some tooth coloured attachments placed on your teeth (these act like anchors but since they are tooth coloured – they are hardly noticed). A series of clear trays are then provided to start the alignment of your teeth. Every two weeks Sophia will check how your treatment is progressing.
