Orthodontics in Hampshire: Everything you need to know!
If you’ve been troubled by the appearance of your misaligned teeth, chances are you’ve been considering your options for gaining a straighter set. You may have avoided smiling for the camera, or you reluctantly do with lips clamped shut. Visiting an orthodontist may be at the top of your wishlist and there are lots of reasons why it should be. With a plethora of treatment options, an orthodontist is the top pick for helping you gain the symmetry and balance you’re looking for.
Check out some of the treatment options below from Winchester Orthodontics in Hampshire.
You may have seen ‘Invisalign’ spelt as ‘Invisaline’, but this is incorrect. As Invisalign’s name suggests, this is a brace system that aligns your teeth for you. Its star quality is the fact that it’s an ‘invisible brace’ and you don’t have to wear them when you are eating and drinking. Using 3D technology, each of the aligners are custom-made to fit your mouth and they apply a determined amount of force on your teeth to move them into the desired position. Invisalign is also available in a teenage range: Invisalign Teen.
Invisalign is a comfortable option for people who want to straighten their teeth. Using this system usually removes the need for any fixed braces and can be much easier to speak clearly with. There is less need for emergency appointments as there is a much lower risk attached to this brace system, which means less time off work or school! As they’re virtually invisible, you can also wear them with confidence, knowing that people need only know that you have them if you choose to spill the beans. Clear braces for the win!
Damon Clear Braces
Another treatment option for those who require fixed braces, is the Damon Clear Braces. This consists of tieless braces with the high technology archwires. The fixed braces are transparent in colour and they are resistant to staining. They provide excellent results and once they’re in place, you can wear them 24/7, without the need to adjust them until the next time you visit the practice.
Damon Metal Braces
Damon Metal Braces have smaller brackets than traditional braces. They don’t require elastic or metal ties, and they treat a whole variety of issues such as crossbite, overbite, crowding, and spacing amongst other things. They are another treatment option you can plump for and you will be advised if this is the right treatment for you.
For an almost invisible solution to braces again, the Lingual Brace is fixed to the back of your teeth. This can be appealing to adults who don’t want to look as if they’re an overgrown teenager wearing metal braces! Each bracket can be made to fit the size and shape of each of your individual teeth and will give you confidence in the process of gaining that practically perfect smile in every way!
For these treatments, and others such as teeth whitening, visiting Winchester Orthodontics will help you to achieve the balance to your life that you need when you look in the camera and say, ‘Cheese!’
