All about teeth straightening

The use of fixed or removable braces improves the functions and aesthetics of crooked teeth, teeth which contain gaps and crowded teeth. A brace straightens teeth by gradually moving teeth into the correct position using a small force. With many braces you will have to wear a fixed non-removable brace for between one and two years and a dentist will check your braces regularly to make sure everything is going according to plan.

teeth-straightening-in-weybridgeWho can wear braces?

People of any age can wear a brace, and the majority of people are aged around 11 or 12 years old. However, braces are becoming more popular with adults as teeth straightening technology is developed. Discreet, tooth-coloured  or clear braces and aligners in particular are rising in popularity as people are striving to improve their teeth without having to compromise by wearing a metal brace.

What are the options?

Before any teeth straightening treatment is recommended or undertaken, your dentist will do a full x-ray of your teeth and you will decide together what’s the best action to take in order to receive the best results. Weybridge Orthodontics offers a number teeth straightening treatments to benefit the majority of patients including: Damon, Essix Retainer and Invisalign. Weybridge Orthodontics says Damon clear is a teeth straightening treatment that has a specific straightening method that allows the teeth to move quickly yet still retaining comfort. Clarity ADVANCED ceramic brackets are braces that have a small frame but the same strength and durability of a standard brace. Invisalign in Weybridge Orthodontics is a removable transparent aligner that can be taken out when eating and looking after the teeth, however it still needs to be worn for 20-22 hours per day. Weybridge Invisalign braces are changed every two weeks by a dentist, this allows certain teeth to be aligned correctly at specifically planned in order to accurately straighten out the teeth.

Different ways to achieve straight teeth

Little do people know, there are other options to standard metal braces that they can use in order to receive straight teeth. Just because you’re over your teenage years doesn’t mean you can’t have a great smile. There are many dental options available to straighten out crooked, gappy and overcrowded teeth. These options include: clear braces, tooth-coloured braces, braces that are fixed behind the teeth and so are invisible to the eye and removable clear aligners. Let’s take a look at some of these treatments.

straighten-teethInvisalign

Invisalign clear aligners are one of the most popular methods available to straighten out crooked teeth. What’s great about the aligner is that it’s totally clear so you would have to be looking up close to notice is a person was wearing Invisalign. Weybridge Orthodontics says that Invisalign clear aligners are popular with their patients as they’re discreet but also have the added benefit of being removable. As the aligners are removable, there will be noissues with eating and dental teeth brushing, as the aligner is taken out when doing either.

Clarity

Clarity clear braces are an excellent option for people who want to get a great smile as they’re constructed from clear ceramic brackets and patients find them extremely comfortable. Although the braces are clear, they are not removable like Invisalign. Weybridge orthodontics says the Clarity treatment lasts 18 to 24 months.

Incognito

Incognito lingual braces are worn behind the teeth so are totally invisible. Incognito braces are made bespoke for each patient and will be a perfect fit. The braces are great for people who don’t want to give any indication that they are undergoing a teeth straightening treatment and they provide excellent results.

The above braces and aligners are just a few of the options available to people who think that it may be embarrassing to wear a brace. The majority of teeth straightening methods in the 21st century are designed to be discreet and are much more comfortable that they used to be just a few years ago, especially aligners such as Invisalign. Weybridge Orthodontics have a number of treatments available for patients to choose from. Call the clinic or make an appointment to discuss further.

Can I get Invisalign braces?

Invisalign braces in Weybridge are an innovative way of straightening your teeth without having the unsightly traditional braces. The aligners are almost invisible at first glance and fit comfortably over your teeth, gently guiding them into their new position over a period of time. Treatment time varies dependent on the severity of the initial crookedness, but generally you can expect to wear Invisalign braces from three to four months up to two years. It is a slow and steady process.

invisalign-bracesInvisalign is a series of aligners which are entirely transparent, making them almost invisible. They allow for normal tooth function and speech, and many patients forget they are wearing them. The aligners, which gradually move your teeth into better positions, are worn all the time except when eating and cleaning, and work to slowly reposition your teeth.

Before you can use the Invisalign braces, your dentist will check your teeth to ensure they can be straightened using the Invisalign System. Once confirmed, a detailed plan will be developed showing the series of movements your dentist expects your teeth to go through over the course of the treatment.

When you get Invisalign in Weybridge you will wear each set of bespoke aligners in two-week stints. As you progress through the aligners, your teeth will begin moving, gradually reaching the projected final position. Whilst the treatment can seem slow, it is effective, and an take the hassle and embarrassment out of having traditional braces, especially for adult patients who perhaps need a more subtle solution that will fit in with their lifestyle.

During the Invisalign treatment in Weybridge, your dentist will want to do regular check ups to ensure the treatment had taken effect and that you are on your way to beautiful, straight teeth, so be sure to book regular appointments and attend them.

If you would like to know more about Invisalign in Weybridge, or to find out if you are a good candidate for the treatment, getting in touch is simple. Either call or pop in and talk to our friendly staff who will be more than happy to help you book an appointment.

Braces – ancient and modern

Ever wondered when humans first started correcting the position of their teeth? Well, wonder no more. After a bit of sniffing around we’ve uncovered some surprisingly interesting facts about the history of braces.Of course, the technology used by Romans and Egyptians was somewhat different to the appliances we use today. In fact, by modern standards their braces look more like instruments of torture!

invisalign-braces-in-weybridgeAncient Egyptians left traces of their orthodontic experiments in their mummies. Some of these were discovered with metal bands wrapped around their teeth because for them it was important that teeth remained in place in the afterlife. The Romans used techniques for straightening teeth in living patients. At Surrey Braces, we too focus on living patients! At our practice in Weybridge, Invisalign, a brand of invisible braces, is increasingly popular. This would not be the case if we were still employing ancient Roman or Egyptian techniques that’s for sure.

The beauty of the Invisalign brace is that it addresses so many of the concerns and reservations and problems people used to have about the idea of braces. While most of our patients are children and young adults, who have a medical need for treatment, the biggest growth is in adult patients seeking cosmetic dentistry solutions.

Instead of the traditional metal ‘railway track’ braces, invisible orthodontics offer the wearer the option to have a clear and sometimes a removable brace. For many teenagers, their image is so important that the thought of having metal braces on their teeth is too traumatising. They fear bullying and isolation.For adults who need to look good for their job, the ability to have treatment that is practically unnoticeable is a crucial feature of Invisalign in Weybridge.

The length of treatment is also an issue that is addressed positively by the new invisible orthodontics. In some cases the braces only need to be worn for six months. Another advantage is something that everyone can relate to – comfort. The modern wire technology used in the design of invisible braces means that the force exerted on the teeth is reduced. Anyone who has been through the traditional braces treatment process will appreciate what a bonus this is.

In Weybridge, Invisalign is making its mark. You just can’t see it!
