Achieve straighter teeth with adult braces in Kent

29 August 2017

Ideally, our teeth should be lined up in order to ensure we bite and chew properly. Unfortunately, quite a few people must contend with crooked and misaligned teeth. These problems raise more than cosmetic concerns. Crowded or overlapping teeth can be difficult to clean and can cause chewing and swallowing problems. Moreover, crooked teeth can put unnecessary strain on the jaw, leading to jaw problems.

In recent years, more and more adults are looking into teeth straightening treatments. However, most of them do not want to commit to wearing braces for one or two years due to aesthetic as well as practical concerns. Luckily, cosmetic dentistry has come a long way and at Staplehurst Dental Practice we offer a wide range of discreet braces in Kent, which are specifically designed for self-conscious teenagers and adults.

Invisalign

Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening treatment for people who do not have severe oral problems. The system consists of a series of smooth, transparent, custom-made aligners that are fabricated especially for you. Unlike standard braces that are fixed to your teeth permanently, Invisalign can be removed at any time, just as long as you wear it at least 22 hours a day. Invisalign aligners are made with the help of 3D technology to help your dentist monitor your treatment from the beginning to the end. Treatment time differs for each patient but it rarely exceeds 12 months.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles braces in Kent are a discreet alternative to regular braces for patients who wish to straighten their teeth quickly and above all discreetly. Six Month Smiles utilises clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires that are barely visible. Moreover, since it focuses only on the front teeth and does not alter your bite, you can have your teeth straightened in as little as six months (or less depending on your individual case). Unlike metal braces, these braces require fewer adjustments and are typically less expensive. They are ideal for patients who wish to straighten their smiles in anticipation of a special event, such as a wedding or a graduation.
