The field of orthodontics has seen many advances over the past few years, one of the most important being discreet and invisible braces. Orthodontic treatment choices in the past have been limited, and fixed braces haven’t always been the most aesthetically pleasing accessory. Patients now have a much wider range of choices when it comes to braces. One of the most impressive options is invisible braces, which allow patients to undergo orthodontic treatment without people even knowing it!
At Clifton Dental Studio, we offer some of the industry’s leading invisible braces, including Invisalign and the Inman Aligner.
Invisalign allows patients to get a stunning smile without people even realising they’re wearing braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that are invisible when placed over the teeth. The aligners work in a specific order, and are to be changed every 2 weeks. Invisalign aligners are removable, which means that tooth-brushing and eating and drinking is made much easier.
The Inman Aligner
This is another impressive removable brace. Not strictly invisible, the Inman Aligner is a lot more discreet than a traditional fixed brace. There are two main components with the Inman Aligner, which work to create force and pressure to move the teeth into the desired position. The components are a spring (located at the back of the teeth) and a metal bar (located at the back of the teeth). The bar is very thin and fine so it is discreet in the mouth. The treatment time of the Inman Aligner is typically faster than other brace systems, with most cases being completed in as little as 16 weeks!
