Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile because of crooked teeth? When a photo op arises, do you let your true self show or do you become shy in front of the camera?
You may have felt as though you are stuck with the smile you currently have, but in reality, your straighter, healthier, more attractive smile may be right around the corner. At Meadows Dental Care in Peterborough, teeth straightening treatment is not only available, it is affordable, comfortable, and fast!
It is a common misconception that orthodontic treatment is something that must be completed when we are young. In truth, a large portion of the patients we see for clear braces in the Helpston area are adults.
FastBraces®The FastBraces® orthodontic system has been used for about two decades, though we are hearing much more about this treatment option now. Using FastBraces®, we are able to help patients achieve their smile goals quickly and comfortably using an innovative system that is partially based on traditional orthodontic principles. This system allows the expedited movement of teeth because it is designed to move teeth roots from the very onset of treatment. This is a different model than conventional braces, which focus on moving teeth crowns, expecting roots to follow sometime in the second year of treatment. With FastBraces®, patients are able to more quickly achieve their smile goals, and do so with less sensitivity, according to research.
Depending on the severity of misalignment, FastBraces® treatment may be as short as a few months. This system is ideal for orthodontic patients of all ages. We are happy to discuss details of FastBraces® in a private consultation.
Inman AlignerOne of the systems we use for straightening the crooked teeth of our Peterborough patients is the Inman Aligner. This method of straightening teeth is so highly efficient that front teeth can be straightened in as little as six months. The Inman Aligner may not be ideal for every situation, but a great many of our patients have found this treatment ideal for achieving their smile goals.
Teeth straightening with the Inman Aligner works via consistent gentle pressure placed on teeth from a lingual coil and labial bar. These two components work synergistically to “squeeze” teeth into their proper position in a short amount of time.
Inman Aligners are appealing for several reasons. Unlike traditional orthodontic braces, aligners can be removed. This design allows people to improve the look and health of their smile without having to give up their favourite foods or risk breaking an appliance due to food choices. Simply remove aligners before meals and replace them after teeth have been brushed or rinsed.
Removing aligners also eliminates any potential stress over appearance at important meetings or special events. This type of teeth straightening system is tailored to adults who are conscious of their appearance. For photos, meetings, dates, or other important events, you can remove your aligners and feel great about your natural smile.
It is important to note that, in order to complete treatment in the estimated time frame, aligners should be worn every day without fail. Although aligners can be removed, this should occur rarely and only for a few hours at a time. In order to achieve the desired result, aligners should be worn 20 hours a day.
You deserve to feel great about your smile, and the team at Meadows Dental Care can help you handle misalignment comfortably and quickly. Contact us at 01733 711019 to learn more about teeth straightening in Peterborough with the Inman Aligner.
