Thanks to advances in materials and orthodontic technology a whole new wave of treatments has sprung up, giving you more choices than ever when it comes to teeth straightening.
Orthodontic options: lingual braces
A great alternative to traditional that your orthodontist in Milton Keynes can offer is lingual braces. These braces work on similar principles to traditional fixed braces, but attach to the inner surface of the teeth rather than the front.
The advantage to the brace being attached to the rear of the teeth is that they are barely visible. If you want to straighten your teeth, but don’t want anyone to know you are undergoing treatment, this may be the option for you.
The braces are custom-crafted for each individual patient to ensure a great fit and maximum efficiency.
Orthodontic options: Invisalign
One treatment that has revolutionised the way we think about teeth straightening is Invisalign. Invisalign uses modern technology to plan exactly how your teeth will move over time before the treatment even begins.
The treatment uses a series of custom-moulded plastic tooth trays that a slightly different in shape from one pair to the next. They gradually reposition your teeth using gentle pressure.
This treatment benefits from being almost completely unnoticeable when the aligners are in your mouth. Another important benefit is that the aligners are removable making cleaning and meal times much less of a hassle than with fixed braces.
Invisalign aligners are also much more comfortable than traditional braces because they are manufactured from smooth plastic that won’t scratch the inside of your mouth. There’s also no need for adjustments, you simply change the aligner to continue your journey to straighter teeth.
