All you need to know about Adult Braces

Published on 06/06/2015

Over the past few years with an increase in the number of people looking to improve the appearance of their smile, there has been an increase in the number of adults looking for ways to straighten their crooked, overcrowded or misaligned teeth. Not only does this have the effect of improving your smile and appearance but it also can improve your bite and improve the long term health of your teeth, jaws and gums by spreading your biting pressure across all of your teeth as opposed to just a few.

The appliances used can be either fixed or removable and are designed to fit effortlessly around your day to day life.

At Leigh Dental Centre our staff are highly qualified, trained and skilled to provide this treatment. We are currently able to offer two different teeth straightening systems.

  1. Cfast – Cosmetic Tooth Alignment

Cfast isFast – Straight teeth could be achieved within six months

Discreet – The aligners are almost invisible

Affordable – The aligners used and the time it take to get straighter teeth helps reduce the cost.

The Cfast teeth straightening system is a gentle and simple minimally invasive teeth straightening system that straightens the top and bottom teeth. Cfast uses clear brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires to help straighten your teeth in as little as 6 months.

Cfast works faster than conventional orthodontic treatment because it focuses on the front teeth that show when you smile.

The main benefit of the Cfast system is that the design of the brackets ensure minimal discomfort and the gingiva follows the movement of the teeth to provide a better overall outcome.

2. Invisible Braces

Invisible braces help to move your teeth without the need for unsightly metal braces. These braces are similar to Invisalign and so will not be visible when you talk or smile. In most cases, you will be able to see results with 6 months.

Following an assessment to determine whether you are suitable for treatment, the dentist will make various sets of clear plastic aligners to progress you through your treatment until your teeth are aligned to your satisfaction. You will need to come to the surgery every 4 to 6 weeks so the dentist can assess your progress and issue new aligners.

When the treatment is finished you will need to wear retainers to ensure that your teeth do not return to their original position.

The main benefits of these invisible braces or clear braces are that you can have them on and carry on with your daily chores without anybody knowing you are undergoing any treatment. They are also very affordable and effective meaning you can have straighter teeth at affordable prices.

If you would like more information on either of our teeth straightening systems do not hesitate to call the surgery on 01702 472929. Book a consultation today and receive £360.00 off either Cfast or Invisible Braces.
