Clearly pretty clever

Here at Winchester Orthodontics, we offer an entire range of orthodontics suited to every need. These include the vastly popular methods of discrete orthodontics, which have grown in their popularity vastly over recent years — specifically within the demographic of teenagers and young adults. Procedures such as hidden braces in Winchester, and other methods of discrete dental realignment, replace conventional wires and brackets one associates with braces, with a removable retainer. As procedures such as these fits snugly over a patient's teeth, and are custom fitted to the specific contours of a patient's teeth, when they are worn they are practically invisible. This allows for patients to undertake essential dental realignment, without attracting any unwanted scrutiny from their peers or colleagues, which may explain why procedures such as these are so popular with teenagers and young adults, who may be more concerned with the superficial nature of orthodontics, and subject to more social pressures.

How they work

Other discrete forms of orthodontics such as hidden braces in Winchester act in a way which is somewhat similar to conventional metal brackets and sockets. The fundamental difference between traditional fused metal braces and hidden ones, such as Damon clear braces, is that the sockets used are created from a see-through plastic, and the wires used are far thinner and simpler in their design — which results in them being far less detectable, and practically invisible. Treatments of this nature also act within a far shorter timescale than typical metal braces — which often have to be worn for around a year. Invisible braces, like the ones we install within our practice, are typically only worn for around six months before treatment is complete. After the duration of treatment is complete however, it is imperative that patients wear a custom made retainer during the evening or when sleeping, in order to prevent their teeth from ‘relapsing’ back to their previous alignment. Treatment of this nature can have a massively positive effect on the self esteem and confidence of those who are seeking it, as they can smile to their brightest, fullest potential without any fear or potential embarrassment that may arise from having teeth which are misaligned or overlapping.
