If are unhappy with your crooked, crowded or overly spaced teeth, but feel you’re a little too old for fixed metal braces, we can offer adult-friendly clear aligners, as well as more discreet fixed and removable braces.
Invisalign – this subtle effective treatment features a series of clear aligners that gradually move teeth to an improved position.
Invisalign can help treat a variety of orthodontic concerns including teeth which are crooked, crowded or with gaps – but because it is clear, removable and comfortable, it won’t interfere with your life.
Because it’s nearly invisible almost no-one can tell you are wearing Invisalign, so you can smile more during as well as after your treatment. You can remove Invisalign so you can eat and drink what you like, and studies have shown that it can be better for your dental hygiene during treatment as well! With no metal or sharp edges, Invisalign is comfortable to wear and does not cause allergies.
Ceramic braces – these are fixed to the teeth but the ceramic brackets and tooth-colored wires ensure the brace is much less noticeable, but just as effective, as a traditional one.
Removable appliances – The Inman Aligner is a removable appliance which can be used for crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. It is really efficient, very safe and great value. With the patented Inman Aligner, your front teeth can be gently guided to an ideal position in a matter of weeks. Most cases complete in 6-18 weeks and because it’s removable you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle.
The treatment process:
- Innovative 3D technology creates a set of tailor-made aligners.
- Each aligner is worn for a couple of weeks before moving onto the next one.
Fixed ceramic braces
- The ceramic brackets are fixed to the teeth with a dental cement and a tooth-colored wire is then attached to move teeth into line.
More about adult orthodontics
To help reduce the risk of tooth decay or gum disease, you will need to carefully clean around the brackets if you have fixed braces. Invisalign aligners are removable so you can simply take them out to give your teeth a thorough clean.
After treatment, as with all orthodontic procedures, you will have to wear a retainer so your straightened teeth stay in their new, improved position.
