With an ever-growing range of orthodontic solutions on the market, it’s never been easier to get a beautiful smile. Whether you have crooked or crowded teeth, your bite is misaligned or you have gaps between your teeth, there is a huge range of treatments out there that can correct these issues to produce incredible results.
There are lots of different aligner systems, which use specially designed removable aligners, rather than conventional fixed braces, to straighten the teeth. Many of these aligners, such as Invisalign, Simpli5 and Clearstep, are virtually invisible, so patients can enjoy the freedom of having treatment without anybody knowing. Another popular aligner treatment is the Inman Aligner, which is designed for patients with minor imperfections; this treatment works very quickly, straightening the teeth in just 4 months.
Fixed braces have been used to straighten the teeth for decades and they remain a very popular choice. Fixed braces are reliable and effective and they often provide the support needed for patients who have complex needs. In recent years, the range of fixed brace treatments has expanded considerably and patients can now enjoy discreet fixed brace treatments, thanks to systems such as 6 Month Smiles and CFast.
Lingual braces are fixed braces, but they are different because they are fixed to the back of the teeth and this makes them a completely invisible treatment option. Lingual braces tend to be smaller and more delicate than other fixed braces and they use the latest technology to prevent pain. Examples of lingual brace treatments include Incognito and STb Social 6 braces.
With so much choice, it can be difficult to determine which treatments suit you best and this is where your dentist comes in. Your dentist can explain how the different treatments work and recommend the best options based on your needs; for many patients, the range of options is limited by their orthodontic prescription, as some treatments are suited to patients with minor problems, while others are best for those who have more complex needs. Once your dentist has examined your teeth and had a good look at your bite, they will be able to narrow down the choices for you.
