Why might you need a brace or retainer?
When looking at photographs of ourselves or in the mirror each day we often first notice our imperfections, whether it be our skin, the shape of our nose or the wonky smile. The beautiful aspects of our own faces can therefore shift into an afterthought and in some cases not come into thought at all. This is why when suffering from misaligned teeth it is important to know that there are a variety of options out there for you. From fixed braces to removable retainers, our team at Weybridge Orthodontics can help you achieve a smile you are proud of. With over 12 possible treatment options, we have got you and your smile covered.
What is the Six Month Smile option?
Whilst we may have had crooked teeth for some time, once the decision to straighten the smile has been made, waiting for the end result can seem like a life-time away. Therefore following a plan that will provide you with effective results but in the shortest amount of time is often one of the more popular options here at Weybridge.
The Six Month Smile option is a term used by our team for the shorter courses of orthodontic treatments. With a shorter treatment time, whilst the results can be seen often within 6 months the treatments focus more on the front positioning of the teeth rather than the positioning of the upper and lower smile.
The breakdown of some of the treatments we offer.
One of our shorter term treatment courses is known as Incognito Lite. This particular treatment is fantastic for patients who want to focus on the front teeth without the visibility of a brace. This particular appliance is fixed to the back of the teeth rather than the front and enables you to fine-tune your smile without your friends and family knowing.
Alternatively for those who are still seeking an ‘invisible’ treatment plan but are in need of a little more work, the invisalign i7 may be something our orthodontics Weybridge team suggests. Invisalign uses clear, removable retainers which are custom-made to fit your teeth. Using a series of retainers, this treatment gently pushes the teeth into a new aligned position and is then followed up by a final retainer which is to be worn ongoing in order to maintain the hard work which has previously been put in. Whilst wearing a retainer going forward may not sound like something you want to do, it is important to know that the final retainer is as inconspicuous as the treatment retainers and therefore very few people would know that you are straightening your smile.
The benefits of removable retainers.
Using removable retainers has many benefits for patients. Not only do they benefit the teeth by creating the shift into a new aligned position but allow you to receive treatment with confidence.
