Orthodontics is traditionally associated with children and teenagers. However, at Surrey Braces dental practice in Weybridge we are keen to emphasise that patients of all ages can benefit from orthodontic treatment. Whether you want aesthetic treatment to improve the appearance of your smile, are in need of tooth straightening to improve your oral health, or a combination of the two, we are here to help.
Orthodontics? Doesn’t that mean metal braces?
In a nutshell, not necessarily. Orthodontics has seen huge developments in recent years. At Surrey Braces in Weybridge our team of dentists and orthodontists have a huge selection of discreet devices at their disposal to correct a wide range of problems.
Discreet orthodontics takes the traditional orthodontic principles and modernises them. By using clear aligners, tooth-coloured or clear braces, dentists are able to provide treatment that is almost invisible.
At Surrey Braces dental practice in Weybridge our orthodontists have many options for adults interested in orthodontics. Let’s take a look at some of them. . .
Clear aligners are increasingly popular with patients and dentists alike. They fit over your teeth and can be removed for eating, drinking and to clean. Because they are made from clear plastic nobody will notice you are having treatment.
Popular brands include RXAligners and Invisalign, both of which we offer at our Weybridge practice. You will be fitted with a series of aligners that you change regularly as your teeth move. The length of treatment will depend on the amount and type of correction required.
Clear braces apply the traditional principles of orthodontics to move teeth, but use clear or tooth-coloured wires and brackets. At our Weybridge dental practice we offer the popular Damon and Clarity brace brands, among others. Treatment times will depend on how much correction is needed.
