Adult Orthodontics in Hampshire and Surrey with Time Dental
If you’ve looked into having orthodontic treatment or want the perfect smile, the process can seem daunting. But with the help of new technologies and specialist orthodontic treatments, it’s not as difficult as it used to be. Advances in orthodontic technology have come a long way in recent years, and now there are many ways in which you can get your teeth straightened. We’ve helped hundreds of happy patients walk out of our clinic with a beautiful smile.
What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontic treatments are designed to straighten crooked teeth, fix your bite’s alignment, and correct many other misalignments in the mouth. Teeth straightening used to involve visits to a specialist orthodontist, but thanks to innovation and education, you can receive quality orthodontic solutions conveniently with your dentist.
Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment
Orthodontic treatment brings many benefits. The main goal of this dental treatment is to correct misaligned teeth and bite. This also improves the overall appearance of your teeth and enhances confidence in your smile using a brace.
Whatever the reason for choosing orthodontics, benefits can include:
- Increased confidence in your smile
- Improved oral hygiene
- Better long-term dental health
- Decrease unnecessary tooth-wear
What to Expect When Having An Orthodontic Treatment
Orthodontics can entail wearing traditional braces on your teeth to gradually straighten them into the correct position or wearing aligners, which are thin, transparent, flexible plastic mouth guards that you can remove. Whether you would like fixed braces or invisible braces, you can expect three stages to your treatment.
- Planning – Your dentist or orthodontist will take scans or impressions and create a treatment plan
- Treatment – You will visit every 6-8 for reviews and adjustments so that we can ensure your treatment is optimal
- Retainer Fitting and Finish – Once you have finished treatment, your dentist will give you retainers to wear to prevent any relapse.
Which One is For You?
At Time Dental, we strive to offer a wide range of treatments to patients in Hampshire and Surrey. We use several invisible options and include faster treatments for patients who aren’t looking to fix their bite. It is always worth researching to make informed choices surrounding your dental care. We offer the following teeth straightening solutions:
Teeth straightening is an ideal treatment option for adults, requiring a series of clear aligners to straighten teeth.
The major advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners aren’t visible to others. They’re made from clear plastic, so no one else can see them. Perfect for adults!
We offer FREE professional teeth whitening with every course for adults who want to get their smiles back to white. This will give your smile an additional wow factor.
Six Month Smiles® is a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics. Unlike traditional metal braces, these have white brackets that closely match the shade and colour of your teeth. Six Month Smiles only deals with cosmetic straightening rather than bite correction, which means your treatment is faster.
The Inman aligner is an innovative treatment for straightening teeth. You can use it to straighten teeth in just eight to twelve weeks. This removable device is relatively invisible and gradually moves teeth into their desired positions, using gentle forces generated from two components; a springy coil based on the back teeth while a transparent bar runs the length of front teeth.
A fantastic alternative to conspicuous metal braces, ClearSmile uses clear brackets with tooth-coloured wires for near-invisible orthodontics. This cosmetic appliance focuses treatment on the front ten teeth for aesthetics.
With braces and retainers, adult orthodontic treatment can help improve your bite or straighten out crooked teeth. There are many benefits to this type of treatment that can help you feel more confident with your smile.
