Choosing the right type of brace
When visiting Winchester Orthodontics, you will meet our Hampshire orthodontist, Dr Suzette Mulder who can offer you tailored, informed advice. Wherever possible, Suzette will recommend the most discrete brace system available. In most cases this is Invisalign, a system that uses transparent aligners that are worn over your teeth.
Invisalign braces look much like the plastic retainers many people wear after they have had traditional braces. With this system, you do not need to visit us all the time to have wires straightened. There are no wires. In fact, usually metal is out of the equation all together. You are in control of straightening your teeth with a series of removable aligners that you will receive at the beginning of your treatment. When you get these aligners, you will instantly be able to track the journey to your new smile. Each retainer should be worn for 7-10 days and should be kept in your mouth as much as possible to make progress. We recommend that you only take your aligners out for eating and cleaning (both the aligners and your teeth), however, you can also occasionally remove them for special events that you would prefer not to have braces in your mouth for.
Our orthodontist in Hampshire, Dr Suzette Mulder, can help you to achieve a straighter, healthier smile in around 9-18 months, depending on the amount of treatment you need. Give us a call and book a consultation to see how Suzette can help you.
