Crooked teeth can be addressed with orthodontic braces, which work by moving the teeth into a more properly aligned direction. The dental braces usually take the most part of a year, to a few years (depending on the severity of the teeth misalignment) to successfully move the teeth into the desired straighter position.
At Earley Dental Centre we have the know-how to ensure your smile is in skilled hands. When determining your orthodontic care, our experts consider your whole face, your profile, bone tissue and lip and muscular structure.
Our knowledge of face-driven orthodontics is what sets us apart from other dentists offering orthodontic treatment and is applied to every orthodontic patient they treat – regardless of their age. Instead of just looking at straightening your teeth, a face-driven approach focuses on your, or your child’s, long-term facial balance and harmony. Our clinicians want your teeth and smile to look as good after a year as they will after 30 years.
Invisalign® uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. And, no one can tell you are wearing Invisalign because it’s invisible! Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
