Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on correcting teeth and jaw irregularities using fixed or removable dental appliances. These appliances can be used to straighten teeth, correct an uneven bite, close gaps between teeth and bring teeth and lips into proper alignment. Crooked and misaligned teeth are usually harder to keep clean and are at risk of being lost prematurely due to tooth decay or gum disease.
At Weybridge Orthodontics, we appreciate the need for discretion when it comes to adult teeth straightening. Traditional metal braces are far from the only option for modern-day teeth straightening. This is why we offer an array of orthodontics in Weybridge, from Incognito lingual braces to Invisalign, all to meet our patients’ unique dental needs. Our friendly and experienced dentists, go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable and confident with the care you receive.
Incognito lingual braces
Incognito brackets work just like metal braces, with the only difference that they are placed on the backs of the teeth. This way they are hidden from view. Functioning just like traditional braces, Incognito braces straighten a patient’s teeth within about the same amount of time.
Incognito braces are customised to fit your mouth; this is achieved using dental impressions to help create your custom-made brackets. They are fixed into place by your dentist and require regular adjustments to gradually move your teeth into their correct positions. Incognito lingual braces are a great option for both teens and adults who would feel more confident with a subtle solution for straighter teeth.
Invisalign consists of a series of almost invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that help move your teeth into their correct positions in as little as 12 months. Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made with 3D computer imaging technology and need to be replaced every 2 weeks or so for effective treatment. Invisalign aligners are removable, meaning you can eat and drink your favourite foods without restriction. Plus, brushing and flossing your teeth is just as easy as ever.
