If you are one of the many adults who wishes to improve the straightness or alignment of your smile without fuss or attention-drawing braces, you are in luck.
In the past, it was considered almost impossible to straighten the teeth of someone past the age of 15, but thanks to advancements in orthodontic procedures, it is not only possible, but it is easier too!
This new field of adult orthodontic appliances, known as either clear or invisible braces allows adult patients to straighten their teeth without attracting unwanted attention and without the associated discomfort. Not only that, but many of the options available to dental patients are removable, meaning that you can take out your aligner and put them back in without fuss.
When you come to Apple Dental, our Pinner dentist will assess the position of your teeth and will suggest the perfect orthodontic device to help you get the smile you have always wanted. We are proud to be able to offer our patients with the famous Inman Aligner or ClearStep at our surgery, so if you want a straighter smile, contact us today!
Are there any advantages to invisible braces that go beyond the discretion? Read on to find out!
In the adult world, it is important to speak clearly and confidently. So, when you are told by our Pinner dentist that a brace is required to straighten your teeth, you may be worried about how it will impact on your speech. Luckily, as both ClearStep and the Inman Aligner are thin, they will not have any negative impact on your vocal patterns, leading to a more discreet treatment overall.
As mentioned before, ClearStep is a removable brace, so if you tick all the boxes for the treatment, this is an obvious advantage. You will be able to remove the aligner when eating, during meetings or on dates, so it will not impact on your diet or social occasions. Just remember to wear the aligner for the allotted time per day as recommended by our Pinner dentist.
Another concern that many dental patients have is that orthodontic treatments will take a long time to complete. While this may be the case with traditional orthodontic braces, with both the Inman Aligner and ClearStep, you could see the treatment completed in as little as 6 months! Now that is fast!
Nobody likes discomfort and, if you have known someone who has worn traditional braces in the past, you may have concerns that any brace will be uncomfortable. Due to the minimal pressure approach of both the aligners that we can offer at Apple Dental, no tightening is required, so, there is no pressure required to move the teeth. Ergo, there is no discomfort!
Fitted braces can create their own problems in relation to hygiene. Luckily, as both of the aligners we offer are designed to straighten your teeth promptly, it is unlikely that there will be any long-term dental hygiene issues. Brilliant!
