We currently provide cosmetic clear braces, inman aligners and conventional fixed braces.
Clear Braces utilises a clear removable cosmetic appliance (aligners) designed to straighten your front 6-8 teeth. The technology can straighten teeth that are crowded, rotated, tilted forward or backwards using exact impressions.
In some cases, you will be able to see the results before you start using simulations and, once the result is approved, the custom-made braces are fabricated using the latest in 3D printing technology.
This concept has proved particularly successful in many clinical cases of adult treatment. It ensures optimal treatment results, combined with a high-level of comfort and aesthetics
Other people will hardly notice you are wearing an aligner because the braces is transparent and smooth, without any brackets or metal components.
You can enjoy laughing, smiling and normal interactions without the worries normally associated with the more obvious fixed braces.
When eating or cleaning your teeth or aligners, you can simply take them out – quick and easy, whenever you like.
Here are the steps from consultation to optimal treatment results.
- Consultation with the dentist.
A detailed assessment is essential to make sure you are a suitable candidate for clear braces and understand the alternative options.
Once you have decided to proceed with the treatment, impressions are taken and a simulation is produced to that you can see the final result on a 3D model and check that you are happy with the proposed result. Adjustments can be made if required.
- Clear Braces production.
The custom aligners are made to the highest standards using a combination of 3D printing and moulding.
We will regularly monitor the progress of the treatment. New impressions are taken after every few aligners to ensure that the treatment goals are met. Treatment normally lasts 6-24 months dependent on the amount of movements needed.
All braces treatment requires retainers to avoid a degree of relapse. It forms an important part of the treatment plan and must be followed to ensure the success of the result.
