Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with the treatment and prevention of irregularities of the teeth and jaws. Orthodontic treatment can straighten teeth and move them into a better position. Crooked teeth in children is quite common and so if necessary we will refer to an orthodontist.
Braces aren’t just for children but many adults don’t want years of braces. In fact, a lot of adult patients with crooked teeth choose no treatment at all in preference to long-term orthodontics. However, with the advances in dentistry there is now the ability to straighten teeth at a fraction of the time of the traditional techniques and at a lower cost. Langmans Dental Health Centres are pleased to be able to offer the following teeth straightening treatment:
C-Thru Invisible Braces
The Byte C-Thru System is a way of achieving a beautiful smile invisibly. It involves series of-custom-made wafer thin positioners which gently align the teeth in stages. They are designed so that you wear each positioner for approximately two weeks. Little by little they gently move your teeth from their present to your desired position as you work through the steps.
Invisible braces can be removed for eating, drinking and for cleaning your teeth. This makes maintaining good oral hygiene much easier. They won’t disrupt your life style and are virtually invisible so hardly anyone will notice you are wearing them.
The clear positioners are excellent at straightening out overlapping, crooked or gappy teeth, but in some cases where significant movement is required they may not be appropriate and we may recommend you see an orthodontist. Please discuss your concerns with your dentist to see if you are suitable for invisible braces.
