Why are lingual braces so popular?

Posted on: July 10th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

Lingual braces (you may hear them referred to as Invisible braces or Incognito braces, as well) are braces positioned at the back of the teeth, facing the tongue. It is a superb treatment for adults that are worried about looks and aesthetics during an orthodontic treatment, as it offers complete discretion. This means that no one will be able to tell you are wearing braces!

Lingual braces are digitally customised and require specialised technology to make them, and trained professionals to install them. So, don’t expect your family dentist to know the how-tos as it takes particular skills to stand up to the challenge involved in implanting lingual braces. Of course, all these add to the overall cost of the treatment, making lingual braces more expensive than regular braces. However, their benefits overshadow any possible drawbacks, which is why lingual braces are among the most popular orthodontic treatments patients ask for in the last decades. In detail…

  1. Lingual Braces are Invisible

If you have angled front teeth, crooked or misaligned teeth that make your smile somewhat unflattering, you will fix your problem with orthodontic braces. So far so good. However, with the traditional route, you will have to wear metal braces around your dentures. If you don’t fancy the metal mouth and metal braces flashing every time you smile, you have lingual braces; a solution with a more cosmetic and aesthetic appeal. They bond at the back of your teeth, thus remaining undetectable when smiling. Perfect!

Note: Even if you choose to wear clear braces or ceramic braces, they’d still be visible. They are definitely a more aesthetically inconspicuous option, but won’t give you the utmost discretion you will get from lingual braces. So, if you are struggling with self-consciousness, no other form of orthodontic braces will get you covered.

 

  1. Lingual Braces are Made for Various Bites

Almost every form of bite can be treated with lingual braces. If you were told you need braces, there is absolutely no difference between conventional braces and lingual braces, when it comes to the final outcome. With only minor exceptions, lingual braces can treat even the most serious form of oral disfigurement. The only difference is that they won’t be seen by others. In addition, there is a variety of brackets to choose from, which gives you the freedom to shop around if you want and find the company that will best meet your oral requirements.

 

  1. Lingual Braces are Custom-Made for YOUR Smile

For lingual braces, we use 3D imaging and computer-designed brackets and wires to fit your mouth specifically. The “one size fits all” plan does not have a place here. No one will tell you that positioning lingual braces is an easy task. The fitting demands particular skills and knowledge so that the braces are perfectly aligned with your teeth’s contours and meet your mouth’s particular specifications. This is one of the reasons you need an orthodontic that has received special training to be able to fit lingual braces.

Smile with Confidence with Invisalign – Your guide to Invisalign, part four

Posted on: July 2nd, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

If you are reading this article, you are probably planning to improve your smile and straighten your teeth. So, you should congratulate yourself for making this decision, considering there still are many people afraid of this procedure, implications and even costs.

Well, there is nothing to worry about. With Invisalign available at the Straight Teeth Suite, you don’t have to wear old-fashioned braces and the costs aren’t as high as you’ve thought.

  • So, What to Expect from Straightening Your Teeth?

Well, the treatment is easy and pretty fast, comparing to usual, fixed braces. Also, people don’t even have to know you are wearing anything in your mouth. Of course, they will begin noticing the improvement and probably the beauty of your smile. But the rest of it? Not really. Only if you tell them, since the aligners are almost invisible.

  • How Exactly Does this Work?

The procedure offered is far from being similar to the traditional braces, most people run away from. You should actually expect clear invisible plastic trays that must be changed every two weeks.

However, you must be careful and not let yourself tempted to do it any less than that, because you can actually stop tooth movement and encounter some issues.

  • Can You Take the Aligners Out?

You definitely shouldn’t take the aligners out more than you are advised to. These aligners must be worn for an average of 22-23 hours a day, so you only removed them to eat, drink and brush your teeth

  • Invisible Aligners Are Not Painful

Many people have this question and the answer is always the same: pain is a very subjective matter. However, with the invisible aligners, you won’t get the entire rubbing that you would with the fixed braces, Of course, there will be some pressure in the first week, but it does ease off afterwards.

  • Invisalign Doesn’t Really Affect Your Speech

Many people are quite afraid of their manner of speaking while wearing braces. When beginning to straighten your teeth in Loughborough, you might also get an unusual lisp, but it’s only temporary. However, besides the fact that many people find it cute, if you talk a lot or read a book out loud in the first days, your tongue can get used to it and the lisp will disappear quite quickly. Not as bad as you expected, right?

  • Is There Anything You Should Not Do While Wearing the Aligners?

After all the good news you received, it’s time for some interdictions. Actually, none of these is good for your health so you can have a positive perspective when it comes to the following advice: smoking and chewing gum are not recommended. Both can damage the aligners and there is a charge to replace them.

So, now that you found out how easy it can be to straighten your teeth are you ready to make an easy but important change in your life? Book your FREE assessment HERE or read Your Guide To Invisalign part 1 HERE

Is Teeth Straightening for You?

Posted on: February 20th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

In the recent years, we have seen an increase in adult patients wanting to improve their smile through teeth straightening.

Celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Katherine Heigl, Holly Willoughby, Mylene Klass have all had some form of braces treatment as adults. So if you are embarrassed of your crooked smile, had braces as a child and lost your retainers and your teeth are misaligned again or not had an opportunity to have braces as a teenager, then feel reassured that our experienced team at the Straight Teeth Suite can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

Treatments such as 6 month braces can treat most cases within 3-10 months and are highly popular due to the quick results and affordable prices. The special patented shape of the braces and the special wires cause fast tooth movement and correction of very misaligned teeth. Therefore, if other types of teeth straightening treatments are not suitable for you, 6 month braces  may be a good alternative.

Once we have met you for your initial assessment and you decide to go ahead with treatment, we invite you back for a further appointment for moulds, photos and an explanation of what to expect from the treatment. Following this appointment, you are booked back for fitting of the brace and then your review appointments will be approximately every 3 weeks to check progress and change the little elastics. Once your teeth are straight, we take your braces off and provide you with retainers, to ensure the teeth do not move back into their old position.

Don’t forget! If you want your smile to stay straight for life, you need to wear your retainers for life.

How Much do Lingual Braces Cost in Leicester?

Posted on: September 30th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

 

Many of us have an imperfection that we’d like to improve, and nowhere is this more apparent than in our teeth. At the Straight Teeth Suite in Leicester, we provide Lingual Braces that get people smiling more confidently. Of course, one of the most important things you will want to consider before actually undertaking this kind of treatment is the cost.

After all, dental work can be expensive, can’t it?

You may want a better smile, but when you look at your bank account it might seem impossible. Teeth-straightening is a luxury you just can’t afford; it’s only film stars and rich people who have that kind of thing done. You’ll simply have to carry on with your crooked or crowded teeth and make the best of it.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The great news is that the Straight Teeth Suite in Leicester offer a wide range of financing plans that can help patients spread the cost of having their teeth straightened. This means that many people will be able to afford Lingual Braces, and there is no need to worry about finding the full cost up front. Still, you might worry that you won’t be able to keep up payments over a longer period, which is why we offer a free no-strings consultation at the outset.

Free Consultation.

The free consultation at the Straight Teeth Suite in Leicester is designed to make sure that you are a suitable candidate for Lingual Braces and to explore all the possibilities, answering any questions you may have. We will take a look at your teeth and also assess things like your gum health and the overall condition of your mouth. We’ll also discuss the different payment methods so that you are aware of all the help that is available.

Interest-Free Credit

We provide a number of payment plans, ranging from 1-year to 5-years, with interest-free credit for the first year. Once you have had your assessment we’ll be able to give you an individual quote and formulate a payment plan that suits your current situation. There will be no pressure for you to undertake treatment – at the Straight Teeth Suite we certainly don’t believe in hard sales techniques just to get a patient on board. We want to make absolutely sure, first of all, that you are comfortable with the procedure, and then make doubly sure you are happy with the payment plan. Neither do we cut corners to enable you to afford the treatment; if we have to remove certain features that will make the whole process less effective, then that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, does it?

Depending on the kind of treatment you need, your lingual brace treatment could cost in the region of £3,000 -£4,000. More complete breakdown of costs can be found here.

Contact the Straight Teeth Suite in Leicester

You can contact our Leicester clinic today to arrange a free consultation and discover how lingual braces can help improve your smile. Our staff are available to discuss all aspects of the process, including the financing side of things, enabling you to make an informed decision at your own pace.

Rediscover Your Smile in Leicester Your guide to the Inman Aligner, part four

Posted on: September 11th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

 

With any dental procedure, it’s only natural to have worries and concerns about the work that needs to be done. Rather than let patients step into the unknown, the team at the Straight Teeth Suite ensure that you are aware of every step of the treatment through maintaining dialogue from the first step to the last. Before your initial consultation, however, you may want to check out the final part of our 4 part blog series titled: Your Guide To The Inman Aligner for any final questions you need answering – continued below.

Is it safe to have a root filling while wearing the Inman Aligner?

As a rule, the team tend to recommend all other treatments to be completed beforehand, regardless of what it is. From orthodontic to other straightening procedures, it’s best that the teeth are seen to for these issues prior to the fitting of the aligner, but when it as absolutely necessary there can be exceptions. It’s worth noting that, on occasion, teeth that have recently had root fillings can become more fragile – potentially causing complications with the aligner later down the line.

Do I need a full brace to correct two misaligned teeth?

This would depend on your bite and dental profile. It depends on a number of things, so it’s difficult to say without having an initial consultation. Generally it depends on the bottom teeth, but if there were just simple crowding at the front then you wouldn’t necessarily need a full brace.

Could I have an Inman Aligner for both the top and bottom jaws?

This isn’t a path that the dentists would normally choose to take, simply because it can feel extremely bulky within your mouth. If you felt that both jaws were in need to the treatment, it’s likely that they would be treated one at a time – this allows greater precision with the individual aligner, and greater clarity when it comes to seeing the results.

When should I start to feel my teeth move?

Due to the effectiveness of the Inman Aligner, you could expect to feel your teeth become tender within a few days. Every time you come in for a check-up, we’ll be able to track the movement to signify how well the aligner is working – it is a very gradual process, so you may not be able to see progress every single day.

Why do I feel pain whilst eating?

As with any treatment, the area affected becomes more sensitive – this is the same with your teeth. The aligner may initially make it more uncomfortable for you to bite, but if the pain feels too severe then don’t hesitate to contact the team and the relevant pain relief will be made available to you.

Will my teeth feel loose while wearing the Inman Aligner?

It’s completely natural for your teeth to loosen during this procedure, as the pressure will soften the bones around the affected area. It may feel a bit wobbly, but it’s a standard symptom of the aligner. As always, if you feel like there is too much movement going on, just contact the team in the West Midlands and they will take a look for you.

My Inman Aligner has given me blisters. Is this normal?

Again, symptoms such as this are completely natural. With any brace or aligner, it may rub when you eat – especially in the early days, when your mouth is not used to the friction. The Straight Teeth Suite do offer specialist waxes to cover the areas particularly affected, which can be a great help if you are suffering particularly badly. Just contact one of the team, and they will ensure everything is done to remedy this.

How do you clean the Inman Aligner?

It’s recommended that you invest in a good, small toothbrush, as this will allow you to physically remove anything that gets stuck within the aligner. There are also specially designed products that are available from the Straight Teeth Suite that are extremely effective in cleaning them.

Can I stop wearing my aligner early as my teeth already look and feel straight?

It’s absolutely vital that you let the dentists make this decision, rather than opting to do so yourself. Just pop in for an examination and the team will be able to show you the progress made, and how far you need to go with the treatment cycle until it is completed. If they are happy that the objectives of the treatment have been met, you’ll be able to remove the aligner straight away.

My Inman Aligner treatment is finished but I do not feel happy with the results. What do I do?

One of the things that is advocated at the Straight Teeth Suite is open communication between doctor and patient. If you have any concerns or dissatisfactions, don’t hesitate to air them with the team and they will always be on hand to assist you in any way that they can. From the outset, you will be provided with a realistic outcome and the team will always work towards this being met.

The Inman Aligner is one of our most popular treatments here at the Straight Teeth Suite, and as a result we get so many different questions and queries from potential patients as to whether it could work for them. Our four-part guide is designed to alleviate any concerns you may have, but the easiest way to work out whether the treatment is for you is through a consultation with one of the dentist. If you feel like the Inman Aligner could help you rediscover your smile, then contact us today or read Your Guide to Inman Aligner Part 1 for more question and answers.

A Removable Solution for a Straighter Smile in Loughborough. Your guide to the Inman Aligner, part three

Posted on: September 11th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

 

As you’ve seen in part 1 and part 2 to Your Guide To the Inman Aligner blog series, the Straight Teeth Suite are committed to working together with you to find the most suitable treatment for your dental issue and lifestyle. If you feel that there are still a few questions left unanswered before you arrange your initial consultation in Loughborough, read on for some more comprehensive answers from the team

If I have had braces in the past but my teeth have shifted again, am I still able to have an Inman Aligner?

In the few cases where previous braces have not worked, it’s only natural that you will want to rectify this issue once and for all. If it’s only the front four teeth that have moved, you would be a perfect candidate for an Inman Aligner – it doesn’t matter how successful or unsuccessful your past treatments may have been, if the team feel like they can treat you then you will have the same access as anyone to the procedure.

Will I need a retainer?

Regardless of the dental treatment you receive, you will still need to use retainers for the rest of your life in order to keep your teeth straight. People of all ages that have used any one type have brace at some stage in their life all find themselves in the same position, so it’s nothing to worry about.

Can I get Inman Aligners at the same time as an expander?

This will depend on the specifics of your case, but it’s more than likely that this will be perfectly fine. If the team feel that your teeth need to be expanded slightly in order bring them forward a bit, or just to make some more space within your mouth, then you would be perfectly able to have an expander included with your treatment.

Will my wisdom teeth affect Inman Aligner treatments?

It’s actually a common misconception that wisdom teeth are the root cause of crowding of the front teeth. A lot of research has been carried out to disprove this theory, which means that they would not affect your treatment. If you’re experiencing discomfort with your wisdom teeth, we advise that a separate treatment plan is taken.

Does an Inman Aligner require good molars?

In a nutshell, having good molars is not a prerequisite when it comes to being eligible for the Inman Aligner. There are ways around not having them – for example, the team may be able to attach the little hooks on the aligner onto your back teeth, meaning they would only need access to your premolars. This is something that would be assessed at your initial consultation.

Can it straighten my canines?

Unfortunately not, as it only works on the front four teeth – the team would instead offer you an alternative way to move forward once they had assessed the issue.

Can I use an Inman Aligner if I have a missing tooth?

Again, this is something that is case dependent – it really comes down to what tooth or teeth are missing before the team could provide relevant feedback.

Would it be able to close the gap from thumb sucking?

The severity of the damage would have to be assessed before the team would be able to recommend an aligner. If the top two teeth are pushed quite far forward and you want them to be pushed back, it’s a very distinct possibility. However, it has been the case a conventional brace is more appropriate due to the level of damage that has been done.

Can an Inman Aligner correct overlaps?

This particular treatment is actually extremely effective to treat overlaps. The team have treated a number of cases involving them, many of which you are able to see on the website. When the front teeth are crooked, or if the lower bite is crowded, this type of aligner would be one of the first treatments that the team would recommend.

Would the aligner be able to correct protruding teeth?

The Inman Aligner is fantastic at treating this kind of problem. The average case is around 12 to 16 weeks, but it’s hugely effective in tackling the issue – more than worth the slightly longer treatment programme.

What about front teeth with gaps?

It is possible for us to treat this kind of issue with an Inman Aligner, but it is very case specific. In some instances, the team may wish to implement clear aligners to finish off the treatment cycle following the use of the Inman. You would be keep informed with all developments, and be able to discuss with the team what ways of treating the issue you would be most comfortable with, making the whole process easier for all parties.

If the use of an Inman Aligner sounds like something that would help your smile reach its full potential, make sure you contact one of the Loughborough-based team at the Straight Teeth Suite. With professional help and guidance readily available before all treatments, it’s the easiest way to take that difficult first step towards a happier you.

4 Things Every Mother Should Do Before Choosing an Orthodontist in Nottingham

Posted on: July 20th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

Misaligned teeth and jaws used to be a challenging task to deal with in the past. However, with the latest advances in dentistry, and breakthroughs that no one could have ever imagined a few decades ago, most oral issues are easily treated. What used to be a long and tedious process is now computer-designed and significantly shortened in treatment time, allowing children and teenagers to acquire a bright and straight smile without the use of metal braces and non-aesthetically pleasing headgear. Also, pain has given its place to nervous-free orthodontic treatments and effective pain management.

That said, can you trust just about everybody with your child’s braces? What should every mom know before deciding which orthodontist will treat her child’s mouth? Here are the 4 major points you need to focus on, to make the wisest of decisions:

  1. Don’t Opt for the First Assessment you are Made

Knowledge is power, and the more you know about treatment options, the better placed your decision will be. For that reason, it is proposed not to stick to the initial assessment. They are, sometimes, wrong. To stay on the safe side, better ask for a second opinion. This should give you more knowledge and a more judgmental mind considering the first diagnosis and its accuracy. You will also understand whether your child is indeed in need of an orthodontic treatment and if the time is right to start one.

  1. Get Advice from Orthodontic Specialists

Did you know that millions of people in the UK and across the world go undiagnosed with serious jaw and tooth alignment problems because they never consulted an experienced orthodontic specialist? The result is to have severe jaw joint issues and tooth wear later on in their lives that require more expensive treatments than the ones that should/could have been delivered at an earlier age. To avoid that, you can find the right doctors and get their advice. Maybe your child has biting issues (malocclusion) or other problems that could escalate into a more critical condition in the future. Wouldn’t you want to know beforehand so you can intervene and prevent it? That’s why you need to speak to orthodontists with many years of experience and advanced training in jaw & tooth alignment to develop the most suited treatment plan for your child.

  1. Ask the Right Questions

– Is the doctor a specialist?

– When is the best time to start a treatment?

– How soon should my child be evaluated to rule out possible problems?

– Do I pay for the first visit?

– Am I paying extra for the retainers?

– What are the differences between treatment options (Lingual, Invisalign, etc.)?

– Are emergency appointments charged extra or included in the quoted fee?

– Are there any payment options?

– Do the orthodontist and staff at the clinic make my child feel special?

These are some of the important things you need to know about, to familiarise yourself with the nature of your child’s jaw and tooth alignment issues and be more able to understand the approach suggested.

  1. Book a Consultation

To make a confident decision, you have to visit the clinic in person. During that visit, you will not only be able to get clarifications to the burning questions you have in mind, but also take a good look around to see if the practice is comfortable, clean and infuses serenity and professionalism. You will also be able to tell whether the orthodontist is fully engaged in conversation with your child and you, or if you are rushed, among so many others. If you are happy with everything, you can then say you have found the perfect specialist for your child. Just trust your mommy instinct on this one; it is never wrong!

Finding the right doctor to allow your child to acquire a lovely straight smile in a timely manner while setting the foundation for an excellent oral health is paramount. At Straight Teeth Smile in Nottingham, you will get the exceptional care you want for your child and feel our innate passion and deep love for what we do right away.

Does your Child Really Need Braces in Leicester?

Posted on: July 6th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

It is estimated that about 45% of kids require braces to fix misaligned biting issues, among other functional ones, and a profound 75% of children can benefit from having their teeth straightened. Dental braces are usually recommended as a means to fight 2 major problems: (1) jaw misalignment, where the patient either has an overbite (the top teeth are extruded compared to the bottom teeth) or underbite (the lower teeth are protruded and cover the upper ones), and (2) tooth crowding, usually of the bottom teeth (90% of children). All these conditions are collectively referred to as malocclusions, and besides an unattractive appearance, they can be the cause of serious health issues in the long run.

Why Wear Braces in the First Place?

Some people treat their dental conditions for self-esteem and cosmetic reasons, which includes the improvement of the shape of their face. Others seek the real benefits to wearing braces, which allow them to speak more effectively, bite and chew their food easier, and be able to maintain their oral hygiene and health to enhanced levels.

When we Usually Wait

The real question is, how many sets of braces are indeed required? No one can put a finger on a particular number.

  1. Overcrowding

Some research suggests we wait until the child’s late teens when the jaw will have grown to its full size, before the child begins a treatment, even in cases of more severe crowding. In the majority of cases, we usually adopt a wait-and-see approach, unless our case requires otherwise.

  1. Open Bite

An open bite is another form of malocclusion and occurs when the front teeth don’t meet the bottom teeth when the jaw closes and the child bites down. Early intervention in regards this case is not yet proven necessary, given that the bottom and top rows of front teeth keep are growing toward each other as the child gets older. So, it is proposed to wait until all the so-called baby teeth have been replaced by the adult teeth, before proceeding to a treatment.

  1. Overbite

Approximately 30% of children have buck teeth or an overbite, which is a skeletal abnormality that is usually not treated with braces, but other devices that help realign the jaw. You can have this issue addressed when the child is 7-8 years old or during their teens.

  1. Crossbites and Underbites

These conditions are much less common compared to crowding and overbites in kids. The majority of orthodontists feel that they should be addressed early as it might be easier to correct.

That said, our experience has shown that there are very good reasons for going ahead with braces at an early age (that is prior adulthood).

 

Benefits of an Early Intervention

First of all, in case of crowded teeth, your child can wear braces for cosmetic reasons and to be able to clean his or her teeth easier. Of course, both reasons offer significant benefits each. For example, your child might feel uncomfortable with the way their teeth look. Let’s face it, some issues with the teeth can be disfiguring, which, in turns, can make your child lose their self-confidence and suffer poor relationships. We all know, as parents, what this can do to a child – to any person, in fact. We see children getting bullied every day with tragic results, and such issues are not to be taken lightly. So, you will probably need to consider an orthodontic treatment. Also, those that can’t chew properly can experience pain. In this case, undergoing a treatment the soonest possible is considered critical.

Other than that, being able to clean your teeth thoroughly can keep you away from serious  problems, such as gum disease that could lead even to tooth loss and serious inflammation. And we are just scratching the surface of the colossal iceberg here.

However, the one responsible for recommending an orthodontic treatment to your child is your orthodontist; a trusted professional that you know wants the best for you and your family. One that truly cares about how you feel, bears your concerns, and answers your questions patiently. At Straight Teeth Suite in Leicester, we are happy to have cultivated such friendly and family-like relationships with our patients, because our genuine care for them is hard to miss.

To us, your child’s health is as important as it is to you, so contact us, have your first consultation free of any obligations and let’s discuss your child’s options in full!

Will Lingual Braces Work for me in Loughborough ?

Posted on: May 18th, 2015 by freshadmin No Comments

Wondering whether you are a suitable candidate for lingual braces? You are not alone. Many patients come to our practice in Loughborough and ask us the exact same thing. Considering the appeal this treatment has to teenagers and adults, it is no surprise so many people want to know more about it. Of the many things said and written, not everything is accurate. So, here is a brief overview to help clear the air! Of course, your dentist* (please see the note below) is the one responsible for determining which teeth straightening treatment is bet for you, but let’s go over some basics before you visit one!

As a general rule, just remember that if you can be treated with traditional braces, chances are you are also suited to lingual braces.

What cases do lingual braces treat?

Lingual braces are ideal for correcting numerous issues, from very minor to more severe related to the misalignment of the bite and teeth. So, if you have such issues, you will find an effective orthodontic treatment with lingual braces.

Also, lingual braces are used to treat malocclusions, such as crossbites, underbites, and overbites, as well as crooked, crowded, and gappy teeth. In detail:

  • Overcrowding occurs when all the teeth don’t have enough room to fit normally.
  • Any extra spaces within the jaw lead to widely spaced teeth or gappy teeth.
  • When you have a misaligned upper and lower jaw, you are having cross bites, which means that one or more upper teeth bite on the inside of the lower teeth, either to the side or the front of the mouth.
  • Deep bite is when the upper teeth overlap with the lower ones to a significant degree.
  • Finally, underbites occur when you have protruding front teeth. This is because the upper jaw undergrows for some reason, or the lower jaw overgrows (maybe even both).

What ages are ideal for lingual braces?

Typically, adult patients feel strongly about lingual braces, mainly because they appreciate the fact that they have been provided with a way to develop a great smile and correct their bite issues without compromising their appearance. Their smile improves quickly, without anyone knowing they are under an orthodontic treatment. However, an increasing number of teens and preteens also find lingual braces to be indispensable for the same reasons. They just love wearing braces that don’t obscure their teeth and not feeling self-conscious about their appearance. And, we all know how challenging the school environment can be.

Therefore, if you are an adult, professional, or have a teenage child and having a discreet orthodontic treatment is not enough, lingual braces are the best option. They are not only confidence boosters because they are completely invisible, but also very effective in treating every issue conventional treatments can. So, if you are suited for conventional braces you are an excellent candidate for lingual braces, too.

* NOTE: Only dentists who have been on additional training can apply lingual braces and determine if lingual braces will work for you, so be careful when choosing a dentist for that particular treatment.

 

Fill your moments with much laughter and the widest smiles ever. Contact us now, book your complimentary consultation (free of any obligations), and be free to focus on your fantastic smile, not your braces anymore!

 

6 Months Braces: The best Straight Teeth Option for Adults in Loughborough

Posted on: July 28th, 2014 by freshadmin No Comments

Are you among those adults that feel somewhat withdrawn from wearing braces to get straight teeth and a beautiful smile, because they think braces are for children, are not aesthetically pleasing, and takes forever to wear them? Forget all about it…

Good news is that Straight Teeth Suite has a fantastic straight teeth treatment that is not only discreet, but also fast. The 6 Month Braces is the most preferred teeth straightening option in Loughborough, and our dentist was one of the first in the COUNTRY to have received full training in this system. Ever since, she has completed hundreds of cases, all crowned with utmost success.

The 6 Months Braces treatment is particularly loved by brides, judged by the hundreds of future wives that have trusted us with their orthodontic treatment, just before they walk down the aisle! They have all ended up far more confident smiling for their special days, which makes us extremely proud and happy! What is more, with 6 Months Braces, it is like wearing braces without wearing them! Meaning, they are so discreet that it is hardly unlikely someone that doesn’t know you are on a straight teeth treatment will notice you are wearing braces! This is why plenty of adults choose to have this treatment done over any other. You can refer to our patients’ feedback and read amazing reviews about our adult patients going passed unnoticed while having braces, up to the very end of their treatment, when they showed off their new smiles!

What is 6 Months Braces Treatment?

It is a treatment that consists of fixed tooth coloured braces (almost transparent) attached to the front of the teeth. What is great about this treatment is that the wires used are also  tooth-coloured and allow the teeth to move. Unlike other orthodontic treatments, with 6 Months Braces you don’t have to take the braces out when you drink or eat; so, nothing stops you from enjoying such daily pleasures!

Who Does 6 Months Braces Appeal to?

People with healthy gums and teeth and patients that want to fix up to 8 front teeth (both jaws included). Furthermore, it is the ideal straight teeth option if you don’t face any serious bite issues (see overbites, crossbites, and underbites). Therefore, If you see a reflection of yourself somewhere in between these lines, you are a definitely an excellent candidate for the 6 Months Braces treatment!

What are my Options after the Completion of the Treatment?

Once your orthodontic treatment is complete, you can opt for tooth whitening to achieve a beautiful straight white smile. Also, as a means to ensure your excellent result is maintained for long, you will need to have retainers at the end of the treatment, so we make sure your teeth don’t move back to their original position.

You are only a step away from getting your self-confidence back and starting spreading lovely, enchanting smiles to the world. Just allow us, at Straight Teeth Suite in Loughborough, to contribute the best we know we can, and you will soon see wonders happening all around you, deriving from your great, smiley attitude towards life!
