20% of patients undergoing orthodontic treatment is now an adult whereas previously many adults stayed away from getting the orthodontic treatment they need due to the limited brace options available to them. Here at Cliftonville Dental, we can offer several different braces treatments to suit you.
The Inman aligner is a fast-acting orthodontic appliance that can treat misaligned, protruding or crowded teeth in as little as 6-16 weeks. The Inman aligner is ideal for patients who have minor orthodontic issues that need treating or they are looking to sort out such issues for a special occasion that is just around the corner.
The Invisalign system has now treated over 4 million patients worldwide and has attracted many adults patients who would have otherwise been put off having treatment. As they are a removable set of aligners, patients have the freedom to stick to their normal diet instead of having to avoid certain foods as they would in the case of fixed braces. Patients are required to wear their the aligners for 22 hours each day so they have 2 hours in which to brush and eat without jeopardising treatment.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is an amalgamation of traditional brace technology and a design that fits in with your smile. The brace design is composed of brackets that are created to match the shade of your teeth and a more recent designed enhancement is tooth-coloured wires. Both of these design elements give for a subtle design that is minimally invasive and great for people with client and customer-facing roles. As the name suggests, Six Month Smiles can treat issues such as spacing, alignment and crowding in as little as six months and the mechanics are the same that are used with traditional braces treatment.
