Getting things straight
Here Winchester Orthodontics, we’re committed to being an orthodontist in Hampshire who provide a full and comprehensive range of cosmetic treatments which are tailored to the needs of each of our patients. Where numerous other practices may simply adopt the simplistic stance to orthodontics, whereby a patient is nothing but a chain-link in a series of identical cases - here as an orthodontist in Hampshire, we take the time to connect with each of our patients on an individual, human level. In doing so, we’ve found that a far more mutually advantageous and beneficial relationship can flourish, and a bond which is built on trust, respect and understanding can last for years to come.
Clearly pretty clever
One of the most popular methods of cosmetic orthodontics which we offer here at Winchester Orthodontics, is the installation of the Invisalign alignment system. This is a revolutionary form of discreet orthodontics which negates the need for conventional tools, such as fused brackets and wires, by replacing them with a removable, plastic retainer. This utilises specifically placed pressure points within it to gradually push a patient's teeth back into their correct specifications. This method was pioneered by Stanford University graduate Zia Chishti, who, after struggling with his own orthodontics braces, first came up with the idea in 1997. The Invisalign retainer is created from a patented plastic known as SmartTrack, which is utilised for its uniquely durable yet malleable nature, which makes it perfect for use as a dental alignment retainer. Since its launch in 2001, the Invisalign method has helped millions of happy customers, with many of these being teenagers. The primary reason for its success within the demographic of teenagers is the discreet nature of the process, as each retainer is custom fitted to the contours of each patient's teeth, so that when it is worn it is practically invisible.
Another, vastly popular method of dental realignment which we offer here at Winchester Orthodontics, is the installation of Damon braces. These are a swift and effective method of achieving a straightener, healthier looking smile - without sacrificing your outward appearance. The basis of the Damon aligner system is similar to conventional braces, in that it consists of fused brackets and a wire which connects them. The thing which separates Damon braces from their counterparts however, is that the brackets are constructed from a clear plastic, which results in them being far less visible than conventional braces. Treatment through this method of discreet orthodontics varies from case to case, but is generally considered to be up to six months quicker than conventional methods of orthodontics. Whilst clear removable aligner systems of dental alignment are massively popular, they are not an option for everyone, as they can only be utilised in instances where teeth are only slightly misaligned. Damon aligners however, are available for anyone who requires them and align a patient's teeth for 24 hours a day, tirelessly. Those who seek this method of dental alignment can find it to have a massively positive effect on their self-esteem and confidence, as it allows them to simultaneously undergo essential dental realignment, and smile without embarrassment throughout each stage of their treatment.
