Do you have unevenly spaced, crooked or crowded teeth? If so Combe Road Dental can give you that stunning smile you’ve always wanted without the need for fixed braces.
In the past, Orthodontic treatment has been offered mainly to children and involved extraction and fixed braces (train tracks) to relieve overcrowding. In this country, adults have not really seen orthodontics as a cosmetic option to improve appearance and, in any case, most of us would be extremely reluctant to be fitted with fixed braces. There are new treatments that now mean this is no longer the case.
Invisalign is the ultimate invisible alternative to fixed braces. The system uses a series of clear, bespoke aligners to gently move your teeth into the desired position.
With Invisalign, you’ll forget you’re even wearing braces. As well as being more discreet than traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are also removable. This means you can take them out at mealtimes and when you floss and brush your teeth.
How does it work?
Your bespoke Invisalign treatment plan will be conducted in advance using revolutionary computer software that enables you to see the predicted outcome before you so much as pick up your first aligner! Each aligner is replaced approximately every one to two weeks, gradually guiding your teeth into that straight smile you’ve always wanted. Each aligner is slightly different to allow room for movement as the teeth get closer to their new, straight position.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
Generally, between 3 – 9 months but treatment times vary depending on the severity of your orthodontic needs.
The Inman Aligner is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely. It’s ideal as a stand-alone treatment or to pre-align teeth prior to further cosmetic options such as bonding or minimal veneers
How does it work?
The Inman Aligner has Nickel Titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows that gently oppose each other, guiding the teeth into their new position. These gentle forces are active over a very large range of movement, which is why the Inman Aligner works so quickly. Once your teeth are in the position we want, they are retained permanently in position by an unobtrusive band fixed across the back of the teeth.
How long does treatment take?
Results are achieved surprisingly quickly, typically in 6 – 16 weeks. Once your teeth are in the position we want, they are retained permanently in position by an unobtrusive band fixed across the back of the teeth.
