Straightening your teeth, your way!

January 5, 2021

Having teeth that are noticed for the right reasons and a smile to show off is a worthwhile investment, but how long can it take to straighten your teeth, and how will the process itself affect your day-to-day life?  When considering teeth straightening the best treatment is the one that fits in with you, your lifestyle, and your budget.

The traditional metal brace, sometimes known as the ‘train track’ brace, is effective but can have disadvantages such as eating certain foods, playing contact sports and they also cannot be removed for special occasions.

Whether you are looking for a discreet and gradual orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign® Clear Aligners, or a system that focuses on a quick and efficient treatment journey such as the Inman Aligner, The Lodge Dental Suite offers a selection of teeth straightening options that work with you!

Invisalign is a gradual method of straightening teeth, this orthodontic treatment uses a series of custom-made clear trays called aligners. Almost invisible, comfortable, and removable, the aligner won't interfere with your lifestyle!  It can treat a wide range of orthodontic concerns, including crooked teeth, gaps, and overcrowding.

You will be supplied with a series of customised aligners, wearing one set of aligners for approximately two weeks before exchanging them for the next set in the series. Your teeth will move little by little, week by week until they have straightened to the final position. Typically, you will wear your Invisalign aligners for a total of 9-15 months and the number of aligners worn during Invisalign treatment is usually between 18 and 30, depending on the individual case.  The beauty of the Invisalign system is not only is it extremely discreet, but if you do need to remove an aligner for any reason this can be done – any time!

The Inman Aligner system uses a removable spring-loaded aligner to gently, but continuously, apply pressure to the teeth. Teeth can be straighter in considerably less time than other treatments.  After your initial visit where impressions will be taken you will be provided with an Aligner, you will need to return to the practice every two weeks so that we check your progress.  At the end of the treatment, you will need to wear a retainer to keep your teeth in their new position.  The Inman Aligner is the perfect solution to straighten crowded, crooked, or misaligned front teeth.

Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic treatment that is far more discreet than conventional braces.  Six Month Smiles comprise of a set of custom-made clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires and are one of the most effective systems for straightening teeth.  The Six Month Smiles system is an almost ‘invisible’ way to correct crooked teeth, but one which achieve incredible results.

Invisible Braces is an easy and affordable solution to your uneven or overcrowded teeth issue.  Clear Aligners offer a system that is practically invisible because the clear splint used is transparent and smooth, and better still it has no screws or brackets!

So, which is the best solution for straightening your teeth.  If you dream of straighter teeth but don’t know where to begin then why not book your free initial VIDEO Consultation at The Lodge Dental Suite and start your journey to a perfect smile.
