Teeth straightening

Cosmetic orthodontics is an ideal and cost effective way of treating misaligned teeth or relapse from previous orthodontic treatment. It has the ability to move teeth back in to a position to create the straight teeth appearance that is desired, and most importantly, it is safe.

There are multiple systems available that are able to provide cosmetic alignment but they all fall in to one of four types. At Pure Dental Care we are proud to be able to offer all of the below types of treatments.

Inman aligners

Capture

This is a very practical and simple system that can provide correction rotations and teeth that appear to be tipped forwards/backwards. It is cosmetic and involves the use of clear resin bows that are attached to springs and are able to move teeth in to the correct curved arch form.

As mentioned above, it is a removable appliance. This means that it doesn’t have to be in place all the time and is recommended to be removed during meals, but can also be removed for social occasions.

It is quite comfortable and very quick to get used to. Total treatment time is 4 months on average, and it is recommended that the appliance be worn a minimum of 14 hours a day (most of which can be achieved during sleep).

Clear aligners

Orthodontics Clearaligners

This is a very popular technique due to its simplicity and superior aesthetic qualities. It uses a series of clear trays that move teeth in small increments towards an end result that is determined from digital mapping. The first tray is worn for 4 weeks and the subsequent trays are changed every other week.

As mentioned above, it is a removable appliance. This means that it doesn’t have to be in place all the time and is recommended to be removed during meals, but can also be removed for social occasions. It is also quite comfortable and very quick to get used to. Total treatment time is 4 months on average, and it is recommended that the appliance be worn a minimum of 14 hours a day (most of which can be achieved during sleep).

Fixed braces (clear)

Orthodontics Fixed Braces

The fixed bracket approach is has the most capacity for treating orthodontic issues. It is able to, not only provide correction of rotations and tipped teeth, but also able to correct the position of the roots of the teeth. The previously held concern about aesthetics has been allayed because these brackets are clear, and barely noticeable.

This is a fixed appliance and so will be in place for the duration of the treatment, it is also necessary to be kept clean, especially after meals. They are quite comfortable and easy to get used to, and treatment time is typically 4-6 months.

Fixed braces (hidden)

Orthodontics Hiddenbraces

This is the most comprehensive and aesthetic way of managing the movement of teeth and their roots into the correct position. It has all of the advantages of a fixed bracket system and due to the fact that it is placed behind the teeth, it is a close to invisible as can be.

This is a fixed appliance and so will be in place for the duration of the treatment, it is also necessary to be kept clean, especially after meals. They are quite comfortable and easy to get used to, and treatment time is typically 4-6 months.
