Teeth Straightening

Many of us would love to have straighter teeth but are not open to having fixed braces.

Cosmetic Orthodontics using aligner therapy

Aligner systems are an advanced dental technology available to straighten your teeth.

They utilise a type of clear aligner that is easier to remove and clean and offers many advantages over some other braces. The systems that we use at Hadley Green Dental are Invisalign and Smilelign.

These aligner systems offer more flexibility in that although professionally monitored, they generally don’t require as many visits to the dentist or the worries normally associated with wired traditional braces. Some of the key advantages of clear aligners are that they can be removed (if need be) for any important social events or engagements during the course of your treatment, and generally give the appearance of almost being invisible.

Treatment

When you attend a teeth straightening consultation, we will first discuss and establish if aligners are suitable for your specific needs.

We will then discuss which is the best teeth straightening aligner treatment for your individual case. Once this is established, we will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, taking x-rays and impressions for our laboratory.

A treatment plan will be devised to show you the potential end result that can be achieved. You will be able to see an animated simulation of what your new straighter teeth could potentially look like. Once the plan has been agreed, we will move on to creating your first set of customised clear aligners.

You will then need to be seen at Hadley Green Dental every two or four weeks so we can check the alignment of your teeth and provide you with a new set of aligners. Each aligner is created to adjust the positioning of your teeth and encourage movement. Once treatment has been completed, you will be provided with a retainer to maintain your new smile.
