Many adults dream of having straighter teeth, but when they think about orthodontics they conjure up images of traditional metal bracket-and-wire braces that may have been worn by their peers at school. These “train track” style braces are notorious for being very obvious, for having lengthy treatment times and for being uncomfortable. Thankfully, modern orthodontic practices have advanced greatly. At The Ivy Clinic cosmetic dentists in Teddington we offer a number of options for teeth straightening in Teddington, including discreet braces and aligners to straighten your teeth gently and quickly, without the world having to know you are having orthodontic treatment.
Clear Braces in Teddington and Twickenham
Clear Braces are a series of metal-free, clear aligners that gently move your teeth into the desired position. They are suitable for most patients over the age of 14 and are removable, which means you can still enjoy your favourite foods and can take them out for short periods, for example for social events. It also helps you to maintain good oral hygiene as you can brush and floss as normal.
Invisalign clear aligners have been used by more than 3 million people across the world to gently straighten their teeth. A series of bespoke aligners are used to move your teeth into a new position. Invisalign can treat a wide range of orthodontic conditions, with typical treatment times being between 8 and 18 months.
The Inman Aligner works by gently pulling and pushing your teeth into the desired position. A pair of opposing, spring-loaded aligner bars create continuous, gentle pressure over a wide range of movement. Using gentle pressure is kind to your teeth as well as quick. Once your teeth have moved to the desired position, the Inman Aligner does the job of a retainer and ensures they stay in the new position.
