Your teeth play a huge part in your personal appearance and can dramatically change the way that we look and feel. Braces and retainers provide a solution to imperfect teeth which could dramatically transform your smile.
Our orthodontic services can resolve a spectrum of teeth issues such as misalignment and crowding. Bad alignment of teeth can have impending effects on long-term health and with one set of adult teeth why wouldn’t you protect them. When someone struggles with crowded or crooked teeth this can result in damage to the jaw muscles which can inflict serious pain.
When concerning the straightening of teeth, the extent of issues is addressed before considering options.
Types of Teeth Straightening
We offer an extensive range of teeth straightening methods which we would be thrilled to discuss with you.
Conventional Metal Braces
Conventional braces are the most visible of options, though are greatly efficient in adjusting teeth to the perfect position. For those looking for a lower cost alternative metal braces are generally cheaper than tooth coloured braces.
Tooth Coloured Braces
To create a less noticeable effect, the brace wires are white in alignment with clear ceramic brackets. They still use the traditional method of alignment but offer a subtlety which metal braces lack.
Invisible Lingual Braces
The truth really is in the name here, as lingual braces are attached to the back of the tooth, completely out of sight.
The Inman Aligner
The Inman aligner although slightly more visible than Invisalign provides a quick and cheap method to straighten teeth.
A revolutionary method which is incredibly discreet. Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth through a retainer and so eliminating the need for braces. This process is generally of preference to most adults.
Taking Care of Your Teeth with Braces
When using braces, it is important to maintain specifically good oral health. By limiting the intake of sugary foods and drinks this can help avoid decay which is caused by a build-up of plaque.
Your orthodontist will be at hand to recommend suitable methods of care in conjunction with your teeth straightening, however, we generally recommend the use of fluoride toothpaste. Extra brushing is particularly important when wearing braces to avoid a difference in colour when removed.
