Welcome to Teeth Straightening (Orthodontics)

For straighter teeth ask about orthodontics 

As people are keeping their teeth for longer and living longer, more adults are turning to adult orthodontic treatment to give them the smile they have always wanted.  Straight teeth not only have the benefit of looking more cosmetically pleasing, but straight teeth are easier to clean and therefore have many additional health benefits.  Many patients also report an increase in self-confidence leading to an improvement in their careers or personal relationships. There are various treatment options for adults.  You no longer need to have metal braces, there are many discreet orthodontic options available at Byways Dental.  These are undertaken by Dr. Amita Aggarwal.  Whilst, not an orthodontist, she has a special interest in orthodontic treatment. 

6 Months Smile

6 MONTH SMILES 

Six Month Smiles® in Checkendon 

Six Month Smiles® works quickly to transform your smile in as little as six months. By focusing on just the front teeth, this popular brace can tackle the most common dental complaints in less than half the time of comprehensive orthodontic treatment. Six Month Smiles isn’t invisible, but it’s very discreet, with inconspicuous clear brackets that are connected using a tooth-coloured wire. It’s this ‘memory shape’ wire that gently guides your teeth into their new position, gradually revealing a straighter and more confident smile. 

Treatment takes less time because the brace is only concerned with changing the position of your front teeth. This means it’s not necessarily the right brace for everyone. But it’s a great option if you’re generally happy with your smile and the way your teeth bite together but would prefer your front teeth to be a little straighter. 

Some of the problems that Six Month Smiles can improve include mildly crowded, crooked or spaced teeth. Most cases are completed in around six months, but treatment times can vary between four and nine months. 

The benefits of Six Month Smiles® 

  • Six Month Smiles features super discreet Lucid-Lok® clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, making it one of our most inconspicuous fixed braces 
  • The friction-free technology aims to reduce the pressure on your teeth and minimise any potential discomfort 
  • Because treatment is relatively quick, there is less risk of root resorption and other issues that can be associated with lengthy orthodontic treatment.

INMAN ALIGNER 

 

The Inman Aligner is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely. It is barely visible and removable, allowing the wearer to go brace-free for important occasions. It’s ideal as a standalone treatment or to pre-align teeth prior to further cosmetic options such as bonding or minimal veneers. 

What can the Inman Aligner do? 

  • It aligns the front teeth (crowding, protrusion, rotations, crossbites). 
  • Ideal for orthodontic relapse. 
  • As a stand-alone treatment or combine with simple whitening and bonding. 
  • Pre-alignment for cosmetic cases so teeth don’t need much preparation and veneers can be super-thin. 

However, the Inman Aligner is only used for treating the top and bottom front teeth, whereas conventional braces can treat your whole arch. 

How does it Work? 

The Inman Aligner has Nickel Titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows that gently oppose each other, guiding the teeth into their new position. 

These gentle forces are active over a very large range of movement, which is why the Inman Aligner works so quickly.  Most cases take 6-18 weeks.

The inner bow behind the teeth pushes forwards, while the outer bow pulls back on the front teeth. 

What’s involved in Treatment with the Inman Aligner? 

  • Impressions are needed so that the lab can fabricate your custom made Inman Aligner. 
  • Initial fitting of the Aligner. 
  • Wear the Aligner 16-20 hours a day 
  • Regular Inman checks every 2-3 weeks.

METAL BRACES

Traditional metal braces are the original method of orthodontic treatment, and allow us to treat the whole arch. There are three main components to metal braces: small metal brackets which are bonded to the front surface of your teeth, thin metal archwires to connect these brackets, and small elastic bands (ligatures) which are placed around the brackets. These parts work together to apply gentle pressure to your teeth to move them into position.  

If your child does not qualify for orthodontic treatment under the NHS we may be able to treat them as a private patient, which brings added benefits: 

  • There is no waiting list for treatment, so they can start treatment straight away 
  • As we are open evenings, they can have after school appointments

CLEAR BRACES

One of the most popular orthodontic treatment methods for adults is clear aligners. These are virtually invisible aligners which move teeth into position. 

If you have minimal crowding just affecting your upper or lower front teeth then aligners could be a very simple, effective method of straightening with minimal hassle and maximum results. 

These aligners are so discreet they can be worn during working hours, whilst sleeping and are only taken out for eating. 

Whatever form of orthodontics you undertake, retention is recommended for life to prevent relapse. Retention can come in the form of a discreet, bonded retainer behind your front teeth or a clear, removable retainer. 

To make private orthodontic treatment affordable, we offer 0% interest-free payment plans to help spread the cost.
