What are my teeth straightening options?

/ 0 Comments

There is no such thing as being too old to boost your confidence with a straight smile!

Over the past decade, orthodontic treatments have become readily available for people of all ages. The stereotypical image of a brace wearer is a teenager with the traditional “train tracks” on their teeth. Because of this, many adults believe it is too late for them to straighten their teeth.

You can correct cosmetic problems like misaligned teeth and gaps. Whether you have previously had braces and your teeth have begun to shift back to their original position, you have noticed your teeth shifting over the years or are simply embarrassed and uncomfortable about your teeth, there is a solution for you.

Our team of specialists are here to help you achieve a straighter, more attractive natural smile.

Here are the solutions we choose to offer at The Dentist at Liberty Place:

Invisalign

Invisalign is the leading clear aligner solution across the world. These removable aligners are becoming so popular because of their ‘invisible’ appearance, meaning you can straighten crooked or overcrowded teeth without people knowing. It is recommended that you wear the aligners for 23 hours a day, removing them for eating and carrying out your oral hygiene routine. You will wear a new set of aligners every 1-2 weeks which will gently guide your teeth into correct alignment.

Tooth-coloured fixed braces

If you suffer from misalignment of your teeth and want our team to close gaps in your smile, this solution could suit you best. Just like traditional fixed braces, these consist of small brackets that are attached to the front of the teeth which are joined together with wire however tooth-coloured brackets are used which offers a much less visible solution to fixed braces. You will need to visit the practice every 4 to 6 weeks for your braces to be adjusted

Incognito

Incognito braces are a modern and invisible alternative to conventional braces. This type of fixed brace is attached to the back of the teeth. This allows our orthodontists to straighten your teeth without feeling embarrassed about the look of a traditional brace. The brace is custom made for each patient to maximise comfort and results from wearing it. The time taken to realign your teeth will vary from patient to patient but an estimate will be given to you before you start treatment.
