These days, braces don’t have to mean metal train tracks for your mouth. Have you looked at the range of invisible braces offered by many orthodontists? Invisible braces can offer a faster result and they are certainly less noticeable than their metal counterparts. Using newly improved customisation technology, invisible braces can also offer more predictability and precision when utilised by a specialist orthodontist. Furthermore, advancements in modern techniques also mean that treatments are safer than even a year ago, and offer reduced discomfort too.
Below are some of the most popular invisible treatment options by leading orthodontists, and the advantages these options can offer patients.
SureSmile® – Precision and Accuracy
With traditional braces, your orthodontist has to bend your archwires by hand. SureSmile® on the other hand, uses accurate 3-D models and robotic technology to shape these archwires. SureSmile® braces offer precision straightening, with shorter treatment times, fewer orthodontist visits and less discomfort.
Lingual Braces – Braces on the Inside of Your Teeth
Lingual braces, sometimes called internal braces or inside braces, are just like conventional braces, except the brackets and wires are attached to the back of your teeth instead of the front. This makes them invisible to see. Furthermore, lingual braces don't distort the natural contour of your lips. Your appearance will not be altered at all, except for your teeth gradually realigning.
SureSmile® lingual braces are the fastest, most accurate, most efficient system for totally invisible upper and lower invisible braces.
Damon™ Braces – An Overall System
Damon™ braces give you the result of a full, natural 10-tooth smile achieved with light biologically sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient. Traditional orthodontic treatments often require removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. Damon™ braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.
Invisible Upper Braces – Top Teeth Only
For those who are merely concerned about crooked or misaligned teeth on the upper level, patients may be able to have invisible upper braces fitted to the top teeth only. The bottom row will remain untreated. This can be a far more economical approach – if it’s not broken, don’t fix it!
