We’ll answer all the questions you have on what’s the best orthodontic treatment plan for you. Dental patients in need of orthodontic treatment or who just want a beautiful new smile have several options to choose from. There are lingual, ceramic and traditional braces as well as clear Invisalign braces. Do you need to straighten your teeth or correct a bite? Our Invisalign experts in Southend will advise you on the orthodontic treatment that’s best for your particular problem.
Invisalign is an invisible aligner tray that looks a bit like a mouth guard you’d wear to protect your teeth.At Advanced Dental Aesthetics we’ll create an impression of your teethand send it off to the Invisalign laboratory where they create your bespoke clear aligners. The aligners are then placed over your teeth and gently and gradually move your teeth to the desired position, usually over a few months. Traditional treatment uses metal brackets that are glued to the teeth and tied together with rubber bands.
Even though your preference may be for one or other method to straighten your teeth you can use our expertise to help you make a final decision. Rest assured, your Southend teeth straightening experts will make recommendations based on your teeth, orthodontic problem, age and lifestyle. This is because some treatments are not effective in treating certain problems and certain treatments are unsuitable for children.
So what should you consider when choosing between the two treatments?
The invisible aligners are ideal for patients who are conscious about their appearance. Because they are clear braces, they’re hard to notice so you can straighten your teeth discreetly. Some patients tell us their Invisalign braces are almost impossible to see and their friends and family don’t even know they’re having orthodontic treatment.
A patient opting for traditional metal braces will need to visit a dentist around once a month for wire tightening. The clear aligner trays require changing every two weeks as each set will move the teeth a little more until they’re perfectly straight.
No matter what type of brace you choose to for teeth straightening, proper care is needed to maintain them. Metal brackets require a patient to embrace proper brushing and flossing techniques and avoid hard foods. The patient has to brush both wire and brackets and their teeth. Aligners like Invisalign are easy to brush as they’re removable. However, a patient needs to brush their teeth after every meal before wearing the trays to avoid staining.
No food restrictions. You can continue eating what you like as the aligners can be removed at meal times.
Hi-Tech. The 3D treatment planning helps in us to plan the treatment in advance and you’ll get to see how your beautiful new smile will look even before treatment has begun.
Comfortable. Your clear plastic trays are smooth and don’t have sharp edges that can prick the sides of your mouth. All you do is pop in the aligners and let the magic work. There’s very little or no discomfort.
Versatile. The metal brackets can be used to correct more complex orthodontic problems, such as; protruding front teeth, crooked teeth, crowded teeth, rotating canines and molars, big gaps, and improper jaw growth.
Strong and effective. They rarely break and are able to exert enough pressure to efficiently move the teeth. The fact that they are not removable allows them to move teeth at all time, giving quicker alignment results. They are ideal for patients of all ages, especially children.
Our Orthodontist in Southend will evaluate your problem and ensure you receive a recommendation to give you the results you desire. Our qualified and experienced Southend dentists are here to improve your smile, confidence and quality of life.
