Six Month Smiles
This tooth straightening system hailing from the US has become more popular with patients in the UK of late and for very good reason. The system uses clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, to move the teeth gently and accurately into position. The barely visible teeth straightening option is much less noticeable than conventional braces.
They also work considerably faster than traditional braces. Patients are seeing great results in as little time as six months (hence the name!) as opposed to conventional braces, which can take around 2 years, depending on how much the teeth require moving.
There is the option to see the results of your teeth straightening system before the treatment even starts. This is by using the smile simulator software, available at Twenty One Dental in Brighton & Hove. You can book a free consultation at the practice to see what your smile would look like.
Invisalign is a great way to fix crooked, overlapping, or overcrowded teeth in a very discreet way. A series of translucent plastic aligners are worn and changed every two weeks until the teeth have moved into the correct place.
Treatment times vary, depending on how much the teeth need to move, but it usually takes around 6 months to 18 months.
One of the great things about Invisalign is that you can remove the aligner easily for eating and drinking and for maintaining great oral hygiene practices, such as flossing.
You can still eat the foods you enjoy, without the fear of getting food trapped in brackets, which can occur with traditional braces.
Using advanced 3D technology, which produces computer images, the Invisalign software plans your treatment from start to finish. You can view your teeth from their initial position to the position that your teeth will be in at the end of treatment. This is great to see how you will look with your new straighter teeth.
Twenty One Dental are offering a Free Invisalign Consultation if you want to see how your teeth would look BEFORE you decide whether to have the treatment. If you have any general questions about your teeth and want to improve your smile, please contact the friendly team on 01273 202 102 and they will be able to assist you.
