Clear braces

Having orthodontic braces used to mean having metal train tracks on your teeth for two to three years. Not anymore. Advances in dental technology now allows you to get straight teeth much faster and more discreetly. In Aldershot, clear orthodontic braces are very popular as you do not have to have a mouth full of metal anymore. We provide a number of clear dental brace solutions for adults. So if you feel you missed your chance for straightening your teeth as a teenager we can provide discreet options so it is now never too late!

Different options for different lifestyles

If your looking for clear braces in Aldershot, one option is the Invisalign clear aligners. These are removable, discreet aligners that move your teeth over a period of time. Another option is the clear fixed brackets. These are orthodontic braces that are fixed to your teeth for the duration of the treatment time. The great thing about this type of braces is that it is clear, so they are relatively discreet. Treatment time is really fast and can range from five to nine months! The other option is the Inman aligner which is also a removable brace and it is designed to align your upper or lower front four teeth only. Treatment time can be as little as 16 weeks. Another option is the discreet lingual brace. This is fixed brackets on the inside of your teeth. You cannot see these braces at all, and the treatment time can be eight to ten months. 

As you can see there are many options and it is important to be assessed carefully to see which option you would be suitable for. Each case is individual and that is where the diagnosis by our dentist is crucial. Once your options have been discussed you can choose which one is going to be suitable for your lifestyle.

You may want to consider teeth straightening. You might have been given the opportunity for orthodontic braces as a teenager, but at the time other things were more important then a having your teeth straightened with uncomfortable metal traintracks. You look back now and think, “I should have got them done”. Fortunately, you can now get your teeth straightened without the need for metal traintrack orthodontic braces. At Time Dental, we are proud to offer clear aligner braces in Aldershot, which is a discreet and convenient treatment.

The clear aligners are custom fit and changed every 2 weeks to help move your teeth into the correct position. 3D computer printing and prediction is used to plan your case. The clear aligners are removable, which means you can still eat what you want and be able to clean your teeth as normal. Treatment time for each case varies.

Straighter teeth- healthier mouths

Having clear braces in Aldershot, not only improves your appearance but also allows you to have a healthier mouth.

Having clear braces in Aldershot, means your teeth are straight and are much easier to keep clean. This means your teeth and gums will stay strong and healthy.

orthodontic braces in aldershot

Do you find that crooked, misaligned or gaps between your teeth make you feel very self-conscious? We have many patients who come to see us and say they often smile with their lips tightly shut and often don’t smile at all. Crooked teeth also makes it harder to keep the teeth and gums clean, meaning you are more susceptible to gum disease and in severe cases can lead to tooth loss.

Teeth straightening is a team apporach

At Time Dental, your initial consultation will include discussion on what you want to achieve with your smile and what the most important outcome is. After the clinical assessment, digital photographs are taken and your dentist will recommend an initial treatment plan which will cover all your options.  Once you have decided what type of treatment you want to go for, your next appointment will be the records appointment.

Digital planning

At the records appointment a full orthodontic assessment is carried out which also includes a pan-oral scan and a set of impressions taken of your teeth. These are sent to the orthodontic laboratory where they digitally scan your models and with measurements and digital software provide a preview of what your final result will look like. So you get to see the end result before you have even started the orthodontic treatment!

Different orthodontic treatments

We fit braces in Aldershot for adults from all ages. You are never too old to have orthodontic braces for straight teeth and a confident smile! Time Dental provide a number of different orthodontic treatments depending on your clinical situation. Clear fixed braces are very popular as they move your teeth super fast. Invisalign clear aligners are discreet removable aligners. Clear discreet lingual braces are truly invisible.

Now when we talk about fixed orthodontic braces, what comes to mind? Ugly metal train tracks? Some of you may remember a tv drama called Ugly Betty where the lead character had metal braces for the entire programme. 

Well forget about those types of braces. Now we can provide clear fixed orthodontic braces in Aldershot. We provide brackets that are clear and ceramic which means they are very strong and they will not stain so they are relatively discreet. The brand names we use are 6 month smiles and clear smile bracesSInce they are fixed to the teeth they are working all the time, which makes them extremely efficient in moving your teeth quickly.

How long will it take?

Treatment time can vary from 4-10 months depending on each case. This is super fast compared to your traditional comprehensive orthodontic treatment of 2-3 years.

How does it work?

So what’s the secret of them moving your teeth that fast, you may ask? Well the secret is that it uses very gentle pressure. In fact, the lighter the pressure the faster your teeth move! I know that sounds crazy but that’s how it works. The brackets are fixed to your teeth. Each bracket is specially designed to help move your teeth. They have rounded edges to ensure you have maximum comfort. As they are made of ceramic they blend with the natural tooth colour so that they are as discreet as possible. They also do not stain.  Once the brackets are in place we place a tooth coloured wire which runs inbetween the brackets which helps to move the teeth into the correct position. The wire has memory which helps straighten the teeth.

Is fixed orthodontics my only option?

At Time Dental, your dentist in Aldershot, we have different options to suit different situations. No case is exactly the same, that’s why our team are certified users for all the treatment types.

Although orthodontic braces were traditionally thought of having only been for kids and teenagers, there has been a dramatic shift in adults having their teeth straightened too. Historically there was only the option of having metal train track braces, but technology has progressed in leaps and bounds and now there are many more options which are far more discreet. For adults, the thought of having a mouth full is metal is going to be very unappealing. Now with the revolutionary technology from Invisalign clear aligners, this treatment has become a game changer. In Guildford, Invisalign could be your answer to having the smile you’ve always wanted at Time Dental.

Invisalign Aligners

More than 4 million people to date have been treated with Invisalign clear aligners. Patients have no need to wear the fixed metal train track braces and Invisalign offer a more discreet treatment option.

Your dentist at Time Dental is highly trained to provide Invisalign as a treatment option to straighten your teeth. Unlike fixed orthodontic treatment, Invisalign can be removed so that it is easier to keep your teeth clean and you can still eat the food you normally eat. Invisalign clear aligners are made of a high grade medical plastic. This means that the aligners are strong but very thin which allows them to be discreet.

If you decide to use Invisalign in Guildford, Time Dental will provide follow up appointments every six weeks. This allows us to track your progress and keep a careful monitor on your treatment progression. Aligners need to be worn for a minimum of 20 hours a day. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and then changed to the next aligner. Treatment time can vary from 10-18 months.

The fee for Invisalign varies depending on the complexity of your case. Some cases are just not suitable for Invisalign so alternative treatment options will be discussed at your initial consultation. Other options such as clear fixed 6 month smile braces, discreet lingual braces and the Inman aligner are all treatments that we offer.

As your adult orthodontic dentist in Fleet, at Time Dental we also provide Clear smile brace discreet lingual and the Inman aligner.

Clear smile brace discreet lingual

This type of brace runs on the inside of your teeth which makes it truly invisible. Metal brackets are fixed to the inside of your upper or lower teeth and are aligned and straightened over 8 to 14 months,depending on the complexity.

The two things that make this option tricky for the patient is the fact that the tongue will be very sore for at least 1 to 2 months and in that time you will be speaking with a lisp. Most patients will adapt and the lisp can disappear but some patients will have a lisp fo the whole of the treatment time. Cleaning lingual braces is also extremely difficult as you cannot see the braces around the back of the teeth.

Inman Aligner

This appliance is designed for the upper or lower front four teeth. The Inman aligner is a removable braces that it is relatively clear but can feel very bulky in the mouth. All patients will speak with a lisp for the first 1 to 2 months and then the speech can return to normal. However some patients will speak with a lisp for the duration of the treatment time which can be for 3 to 5 months.

This appliance works extremely fast and the advantage is that you can take it out and eat what ever you normally eat. It uses very gentle pressure which is why it works so fast so it is not uncomfortable when being worn.
