Don’t delay your orthodontic treatment any longer. With adult orthodontics in Colchester making a treatment more subtle and covenant than ever it is now easier to get the smile you want.
Understand that adult orthodontics in Colchester is different. People have responsibilities in their professional and personal lives and filling up time by having a brace would be extremely disruptive. In short the costs outweigh the benefits. The situation has changed with the development of alternative tools and methods of straightening teeth, which fade into the background both of your routine and appearance.
We have a wide range of treatments and after an assessment, we will be able to guide you towards the sort of treatment that will benefit you the most whilst disrupting you least. But as a brief overview let’s talk about the most common one.
6-month smiles is one of our more popular treatments. It is a system that uses a combination of a brace and night-time aligners to get the greatest change into the shortest time frame. It focuses on the front teeth between the canines and has an excellent track record at resolving cosmetic misalignments in record time, usually under 6-months as the name suggests.
What is it like to use a 6-month smile system?
The combination use of a brace and retainer is what increases the speed of treatment, not a more aggressive or inherently faster use of the brace alone. It is as comfortable as a standard brace; it runs across the front of the teeth and is made of a nickel titanium alloy. This is extremely tough and strong, which allows it to be extremely thin. By shading the titanium wires the same colour as your natural enamel they blend in and are barely visible. It’s close fitting and minimalistic brackets not only allow it to be minimal and discrete but also make it comfortable and non-disruptive to your speech patterns.
With nothing impeding the view of your teeth and the speed of the realignment, you will be able to notice improvements in the first two weeks as your teeth adapt to their new positions. This is something patients with traditional braces usually miss out on as all their progress is obscured by the brackets and archwires.
There is still cleaning and food choices to keep in mind; very hard foods can damage the braces and coffee and other extremely sticky foods can get caught under the arch wire, so brushing carefully with an interdental brush after eating it is highly recommended.
We understand that you may not think orthodontic treatment is a significant financial investment. We offer flexible payment plans and we want you to spread the costs of your treatment over many months, reducing the barrier to entry and having as many people as possible to enjoy high quality dental treatment.
