Getting braces is a step in the right direction for straight teeth. If you have crooked or wonky teeth, then a brace may be suitable for you. Fundamentally, they are an appliance that can either be fixed or removable on your teeth, and will gradually correct your teeth over a set period of time. The time it takes to straighten teeth will vary from one patient to the next. This is because every one’s needs is different, and certain cases may require different amounts of time to be completed.
As well as patients having different needs, we are able to offer an extensive range of braces. There are many variations of braces available and this is because some types have been developed for a certain patient in mind. For example, Invisalign is a removable aligner system that has been designed with the young professional in mind. It is a very discrete option that is very difficult to see. It is a non bulky option which is made out of a special plastic material. The system consists of a series of aligners that will gradually straighten your teeth over the course of the treatment. After every couple of weeks, you move on to the next aligner in the series which will be a slightly variant of the one before. This is so the teeth are gradually repositioned into a correct straight position.
When we initially see you for a free consultation, we will asses your teeth and give you the various options that will make them straight. We have treated many different patients over the years and we quite often see similar problems that we have treated before. Using our extensive knowledge we will provide you with your options and give you a rough idea on how long it will take to complete.
