Subtler methods of straightening teeth
Straightening your teeth no longer has to involve months or years of wearing metal braces. Clacton Dental Care recognises the need for subtlety as well as efficiency when it comes to teeth straightening treatment for adults, which is why we are proud to offer a number of discreet routes to straighter teeth.
Metal braces are still popular with teenagers, who often view them as a rite of passage into adulthood and enjoy the customisation options available with modern appliances, such as being able to adorn your braces with coloured elastics to match the colours of your favourite sports team. Many teenagers now make their braces a fashion statement.
But for adults on a quest for straighter teeth, the thought of a fixed metal appliance can be highly problematic. It’s not particularly compatible with a busy professional lifestyle.
When you come into Clacton Dental Care for an orthodontic consultation, your dentist will perform a thorough clinical examination so that they can recommend the best course of treatment. This may involve the use of a fixed or removable appliance.
Treatment options include:
Quick Straight Teeth
This clear appliance is designed for rapid correction of issues affecting the front teeth. Pretty much invisible to the untrained eye in daily life, Quick Straight Teeth is both highly discreet and very convenient.
A clinically proven method of subtle teeth straightening, average treatment time with Quick Straight Teeth is between four and 24 weeks.
FastBraces are fixed braces comprising clear and tooth-coloured parts, meaning they blend in with the natural colour of your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, which move the roots and crowns of the teeth separately, FastBraces have a unique design which enables them to move both parts of the teeth together for considerably shortened treatment times.
They are suitable for both children and adults, and can be an ideal option for image-conscious teenagers who don’t qualify for NHS metal braces. Average treatment time is three to 12 months.
One of the most popular clear aligner systems in the world, Invisalign involves the use of a series of clear aligners to progressively move your teeth over six to 18 months. You change your aligner fortnightly, and remove them for eating, drinking, and cleaning.
