Invisalign® Clear Aligners - Invisible Braces
At The Dental and Cosmetic Clinic we use Invisalign® aligners (also known as Clear or Invisible Braces), developed by Align Technology, Inc. ("Align"), which have become increasingly popular over the years. They consist of a series of clear plastic, removable appliances that move your teeth in small increments, without the need for metal wires or brackets. Invisalign's product combines your dentist's diagnosis and prescription with sophisticated computer graphics technology to develop a treatment plan which specifies the desired movements of your teeth needed during the course of your treatment, in order to achieve the desired results. Upon approval of a treatment plan developed by your dentist, a series of customised Invisalign® aligners are produced specifically for your treatment time necessary. Depending on the severity of the case, results can be achieved in as little as 4-6 months!
The Inman Aligner is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely. The Inman Aligner has Nickel Titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows that gently oppose each other, guiding the teeth into their new position. These gentle forces are active over a very large range of movement, which is why the Inman Aligner works so quickly.
The image below shows the squeeze effect of the two aligner bows on the front teeth. The inner bow pushes forwards, while the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth.
Six Month Smiles - Orthodontic Teeth Straightening
You can now get the smile they have always wanted in just six months through a cosmetic orthodontic system, designed specifically for adults and teenagers (over 15), who have crooked, crowded or spaced front teeth without major bite issues. The technique offers tremendous advantages over traditional metal braces (orthodontics).
Unlike the traditional braces people must often wear for two to four years, this procedure straightens teeth in an average of just six months and uses low forces to gently move teeth more comfortably. The Six Month Smiles Orthodontic System utilises specialised clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires making them virtually invisible.
The procedure requires fewer dental visits than traditional braces and in addition, the Six Month Smiles System can result in healthier gums, since straight teeth are easier to clean than crooked teeth. The word 'braces' no longer has to strike fear among adults and older teens who want to straighten their teeth, you can now get the radiant smile you have always dreamed of, without waiting for years. Six Month Smiles braces are virtually invisible, and straighten teeth much more quickly and more comfortably than traditional braces.
