Why modern orthodontics needn’t mean a mouth full of metal

Orthodontics is thought of as standard for children and teenagers in the UK, but an increasing number of adults are also realising the benefits of orthodontic treatment. At Surrey Braces dental centre in Weybridge we offer a range of treatments for patients of all ages, using either fixed appliances – braces – or removable appliances – aligners.

weybridge-orthodonticsThe rise of discreet orthodontics

Our Weybridge dental clinic specialises in orthodontics, and offers a number of subtle ways to straighten your teeth. As more adults have sought help with straightening their teeth, so there has been a commensurate rise in discreet teeth straightening options.

This means that you no longer need to fear having a mouth full of metal for months on end whilst undergoing treatment. When you come to our Weybridge dental clinic for a consultation, your orthodontist will examine you, then will talk through the pros and cons of all relevant treatment options, enabling you to make an educated choice of treatment.

Some people may still be put off because they think orthodontics involves lengthy treatment and discomfort. However, as well as being subtler than tradition braces, many of these systems are also faster-acting, and considerable more comfortable.

Weybridge orthodontics: your options

Damon clear braces

Damon Clear braces have tieless brackets and high technology archwires, and have been clinically proven to move teeth quickly and comfortably. They produce predicable results, and work on average six months faster than traditional metal braces. Unlike some discreet orthodontics, they can correct a full spectrum of issues.

Invisalign clear aligners

This popular clear aligner system can be used to correct a number of orthodontic issues. They have the added benefit of being removable, making it easy to maintain good dental hygiene during treatment, with no specific additional techniques needed. You change your aligner fortnightly, and the number of aligners required will be discussed by your orthodontist when you come into our Weybridge clinic for your consultation.

Incognito lingual braces

A popular option at our Weybridge dental clinic, these braces are attached to the lingual (rear) surfaces of your teeth, meaning nobody will notice them in daily life.
