Do you wish you had straighter teeth? Has crowding continued to get worse as you’ve gotten older? Or do you wish you could smile without any gaps? A happy smile means a happier and more confident you. Are you unhappy with your smile?
Why wish for it when you can do something about it!
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth (teeth that do not fit together correctly) are harder to keep clean and are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and can cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, and neck, shoulder and jaw pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also have a major impact on your confidence to smile and speak.
Orthodontic braces can be worn at any age and are used to correct a variety of mal-alignment conditions.
Types of braces we offer At ELITE DENTAL CLINIC LIMITED:
1. Metallic (traditional) braces.
2. Ceramic (tooth colored) braces.
3. Lingual braces. (braces placed on inner surface of teeth)
4. Invisalign.(invisible braces)
How do you know if you need an orthodontist?
Only your dentist or orthodontist can determine whether you can benefit from orthodontics. Based on diagnostic tools that include a full medical and dental health history, a clinical exam, plaster models of your teeth, and special X-rays and photographs, an orthodontist or dentist can decide whether orthodontics are recommended, and develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.
Benefits of Orthodontics
1: Align your crowded or crooked teeth
2: Bridge the gaps between the teeth
3: Level the uneven length of teeth
4: Structure a gummy smile
Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets and acts as clear braces. Invisalign trays fit precisely over your teeth and move your teeth gradually to an ideal arch-form, bite alignment, and beautiful smile. Invisalign typically moves your teeth more quickly than traditional braces, and it does so invisibly. Other people will not know you are wearing braces because Invisalign trays are almost invisible.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN?
• Unlike a standard brace, aligners have no wires or brackets. The treatment consists of a series of clear aligners which are designed specifically for you. Each aligner in the series moves your teeth by a small amount and by changing the aligner every two weeks for the next aligner in the series your teeth are gradually straightened.
• They can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing your teeth or for attending a special event.
• ‘Nearly invisible’
• Comfortable custom-made fit
• Computerised technology – 3D imaging of the final result can be previewed before the treatment starts. This 3D technology is used to manufacture the series of clear aligners which are required for your individual treatment.
HOW CAN I GET INVISALIGN?
Invisalign is one of the simplest smile enhancements you can choose. The process starts with a consultation with one of our dentists. At your consultation visit, we will take several digital photographs of your teeth/smile and use our digital scanning system to create fast, precise, 3D digital images of your teeth. We then map out a precise treatment plan, including the exact movements of your teeth and how long your treatment will be. You’ll even get to see how your teeth will move and preview your new beautiful smile! Digital scanning produces a much more accurate, seamless fit, which shortens your treatment time and allows us to better predict and manage your new, straight smile!
HOW LONG DO I NEED TO WEAR RETAINERS AFTER INVISALIGN TREATMENT?
Retention is the most important part of Orthodontic treatment. Whilst having your brace taken off is an exciting moment, failure to wear retainers as prescribed may result in teeth relapsing to their original position. Our orthodontist will provide a recommendation to you based on many factors, including the severity of your initial problem, your age, and whether we are using the retainers to finalize a few tooth positions.
After 12 months of continuous retainer wear, we often recommend that you continue to wear your retainers at night 3-5 times a week for life. The reason we recommend this cycle of wear is due to the slow shifting of teeth forward and inward as we get older which can be prevented through continued and consistent wear of retainers. We recommend that you replace your retainer every year to keep your smile looking the same way it looked the day you completed Invisalign. We can create enough retainers in advance so that you never have to worry about losing them, breaking them, or wearing them out and it also saves money!
