10 May (Almost) Invisible Brace Orthodontics in Mansfield
One of the most popular forms of cosmetic dental treatment that the practice offers is tooth straightening or orthodontics.
There are several different ways to straighten teeth, from the traditional fixed braces, to the increasing use of clear aligners treatments like Invisalign.
Clear aligners like Invisalign and Smilelign are popular because they appear to be almost invisible in the mouth (you can actually see them so they aren’t strictly invisible, but they can be very discreet indeed). Because they are also removable, they tend to fit in with people’s lifestyle better than fixed braces, but it is very important to remember that if they are not being worn, then the teeth are not actually being straightened, and treatment will then take longer.
It is important to also remember that this type of tooth straightening is not suitable for all types of patient, and in some cases can take slightly longer than the traditional fixed braces. Treatment can take anything between 6 months to 18 months to achieve the desired result.
Since we also provide fixed braces with transparent ceramic brackets, we can advise which appliance is best suited to your individual case, and treat you accordingly.
