The Most Reliable Way to Straighten Teeth
Due to advances in modern dental technology, new and innovative orthodontic treatments have emerged.
Faster and more effective than ever before
This has made orthodontic treatments better than ever to treat misaligned teeth that might be in the incorrect position.
Here at the Perfect Smile, we will provide you with a free orthodontic consultation with an expert orthodontist, who will be able to assess the mouth to determine the most appropriate treatment options available to your condition and lifestyle.
Types of orthodontic treatments:
Using a computerised photographic assessment, we will better understand how your mouth functions and can put together a treatment plan with all your possible options.
- Length of treatment: 12-18 months
- Used for: Mostly minor bite adjustments
This is the most inconspicuous of all the treatments and is one of the fastest.
They usually take anything from 3 to 24 months to complete treatment; the average time is 15 months.
However, you usually do not need as many adjustment appointments and so do not need to visit the dentist as frequently.
The treatment consists of wearing a sequence of aligners for regular intervals usually for 2 weeks.
Thereafter you will need to change to the next aligner in the sequence until all aligners have been used up.
- Easier to clean
- Require fewer visits to the dentist
- More comfortable and less noticeable
- The preferred discreet option of adults and adolescents
For more information see Invisalign.
- Length of treatment: 12-18 months (need to be worn 20+ hours a day)
- Used for: Severe malocclusions
These are more commonly used in children’s dentistry.
These are made up of an acrylic base with special wires and other components attached to it.
These types of braces move the teeth in specific ways and are very commonly used when more significant bite changes are required.
Invisalign can also be confused with removable braces as these aligners can also be removed. However, they are two different procedures.
- Can be taken out for daily activities
- Easily reinserted
- Better comfort
- Length of treatment: Up to 9 months
- Used for: Wide multitude of problems including overbites and underbites
This type of brace is fixed to your teeth with a Bracket & Wire Systems.
The teeth have a “bracket” that is bonded to the outside surface or the inside surface of the teeth.
These brackets then hold various types of wires that then move the teeth in different ways.
Although not as inconspicuous as the Clear Aligners, we use tooth-coloured products so that they are more hidden than the metal train track type braces would be.
The treatment lasts anything from 3 to 9 months; the average time is 6 month.
Hence, some systems are branded e.g. Six Month Smiles. You will need to regularly visit the dentist and attend the surgery for adjustments to your braces - usually every 4 weeks.
- Comfortable and convenient
- Fast results
- Improved oral hygiene and health
- Used across a variety of ages
All adults will be fitted with a fixed retainer
