Orthodontics is one of the most rapidly advancing fields of dentistry, with new treatments becoming available to dental patients all the time. In the last decade alone there have been major developments in orthodontic treatment and patients have more choice than ever before.
In the past, the only treatment available to patients with orthodontic problems such as crowding, issues with the bite and spaces between the teeth were fixed braces. Now there are many different options. Here are some of the most popular modern orthodontic treatments for adults:
Invisalign and ClearStep are invisible brace systems which move the teeth using a series of clear aligners or positioners. These are made from clear plastic so as to be discreet and they are also removable, which enables you to drink, eat and clean your teeth without any problems.
The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance designed to treat problems with the front teeth. It works very quickly, straightening the teeth in just 3-5 months and the results are visible within weeks of starting the treatment.
Six Month Smiles is a fast-acting fixed brace system that was developed in the USA. The braces concentrate on the teeth at the front of the mouth to deliver a perfect smile, with treatment often being complete inside 6 months. Six Month Smile braces are tooth-coloured to be discreet and use state of the art technology to keep discomfort to a minimum.
Lingual braces are ideal for people who are not comfortable with the idea of wearing visible braces. They include such models as Incognito and are fixed to the back of the teeth, so they cannot be seen when you smile or open your mouth to speak. Lingual braces can be applied to the upper or lower set of teeth and they produce very impressive results.
