Invisalign Braces Manchester or Clear Fixed Braces Manchester – Which Will It Be?

Invisalign braces Manchester or clear fixed braces Manchester are arguably a million miles away from the old metallic, train-track style braces of old. They’re discreet, comfortable and in many cases can straighten teeth in a shorter time. But which type should you choose?

Invisalign offers Manchester patients a whole range of orthodontic benefits and as the name suggests the system uses clear plastic aligners which are virtually invisible to the untrained eye. This makes them very appealing to adults looking to straighten their teeth without having wear a mouth full of metal. Other reasons that a person might choose Invisalign braces over conventional braces include:

• The ability to eat what you like – Metal braces mean that you have to be careful about the food that you put in your mouth as it can get tangled in the wires and damage your braces. Invisalign offers Manchester wearers far more flexibility since the aligners can be removed to eat and drink. This means you can still chew gum after a meal or indulge in a packet of popcorn at the cinema without having to worry about your braces.

• Improvement in oral health – Conventional braces make it difficult to brush and floss your teeth and all too often a patient ends up suffering with tooth decay Clearly this is hardly conducive to modern-day dentistry. Conversely Invisalign braces in Manchester can easily be removed for brushing and flossing which means that your oral health should never be compromised.

• The comfort factor – Metal braces can be uncomfortable to wear and need regular adjustments to tighten the braces. This can make them quite painful for the first few days after adjustment. Alternatively Invisalign aligners are made from smooth plastic which fit comfortably over the teeth. As a result and overtime, the teeth are gently eased into their correct positions.

• Knowing what to expect – Invisalign patients benefit from treatment planning which is fully computerised. Therefore they know exactly how long their treatment will take and how their smile will look once treatment is completed. Metal braces on the other hand are often a trial and error procedure which can last for up to 2 years.

While Invisalign concentrates on moving teeth and aligning a person’s bite clear fixed braces concentrate more on the aesthetic side of orthodontics. As a result treatments such as ‘Six Month Smiles’ deliver super fast results.

Using clear brackets and tooth coloured wires this type of treatment only focuses on the teeth that are visible when a person smiles. Because of this results can be achieved in as little as six weeks but usually no longer than six months. Patients who take this option are normally after a quick-fix solution rather than a long-term orthodontic treatment. For this reason, Six Month Smiles is popular with patients looking to enhance their smile before a big event such as an important career move or a wedding.

If you’re considering teeth straightening then Invisalign offers Manchester patients a little more flexibility and discretion than clear fixed braces Manchester.

Braces in Manchester – Deciding On Braces For Orthodontics

When it comes to making a decision about which types of braces in Manchester to choose for your orthodontic treatment there are several factors to consider. Your age and the cost will naturally have some bearing on your decision but one of the exciting things about modern day orthodontics is the wide variety of braces available. With styles of braces including metal, ceramic, removable, fast, behind the teeth, invisible and clear, such as the Inman Aligner,  Manchester patients are sure to find a style that fits their dental needs, lifestyle, and budget.

When it comes to orthodontics, it’s important to know that you’re never too old for braces. Manchester residents of all ages are undergoing orthodontic treatment and with people living longer than ever before, then it makes sense to correct dental problems to keep your oral health in tip top condition.

Your orthodontist will be able to recommend the type of braces which are most suited to your dental needs and/or budget but before having to make a choice, let’s take a look at some of the types of braces that are available and learn a little bit more about them.

Metal Braces

These are the most common braces and which most people tend to associate with the term ‘braces’. Most people will be familiar with these braces which fill the mouth with a mixture of brackets and wires. Children seem to love them especially since the wires can be coloured to match their favourite football team but understandably most adults and older teens are reluctant to wear this style of brace.

Ceramic Braces

These are very similar to the traditional metal braces and are about the same size and shape. However, they vary in as much as the brackets are made from tooth coloured ceramic connected with tooth coloured wires, so they’re not as noticeable. If you’re on a tight budget but want a brace which is relatively discreet, then these could work for you.

Lingual Braces

These are one of the most modern styles of braces in Manchester. They use metal brackets and wires which fit behind the teeth rather than in front of them. They focus on aligning the teeth and correcting the bite and are considered less damaging to the teeth than most other types of brace. This is simply because it’s easier to brush your teeth and maintain good oral hygiene. They can be uncomfortable at first and require several visits to the dentist for tightening, but even though they’re one of the more expensive types of braces, they’re popular because they can’t be seen. If discretion is at the top of your list, then these braces are to all intents and purpose, totally invisible.

Inman Aligner Manchester – This is a type of removable dental fitting that our experienced orthodontics team use to straighten the front teeth. It can be used as a stand alone treatment but is often used to prepare the teeth before applying another cosmetic treatment such as bonding or veneers. It works by pushing and pulling the teeth into their required positions using a titanium coil spring which supports opposing aligner bows. Results can be seen in as little as 6-18 weeks.

Invisalign – Aligner systems such as Invisalign involve wearing a series of custom clear plastic moulds which are fitted to the teeth every two weeks as treatment progresses. Because they can be removed for eating and cleaning your teeth, and are virtually invisible, they’re again a popular choice for adults.

Other types of braces Manchester patients may be interested in are those which focus more on improving the appearance of their smile rather than on correcting the bite. These are often used on just a few teeth and treatment time is considerably shorter than for most orthodontic treatments. These include Six Month Smiles, Secret Smile and Cfast.

Orthodontic Manchester Treatment - How Are Teeth Moved?

Manchester Clear Braces – Our Wide Range Of Clear Braces Offers Manchester Patients Discreet Teeth Straightening Solutions

Here in Manchester,  clear braces are becoming ever more popular, especially with adults who are understandably reluctant to wear the traditional metal braces. At Invisible Braces, our wide range of clear braces offers Manchester patients a discreet and effect method of teeth straightening that allows them to go about their everyday lives, without anyone else knowing that they’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Orthodontics today uses new and innovative materials coupled with state-of-the-art technology and computer imagery to create braces which can help people of all ages. With widely differing dental problems, braces help them to achieve the attractive, straight smile that they’re always longed for. From a dentist’s point of view, we’re happy knowing that a corrected bite will lead to a healthier mouth, with fewer problems such as decay and tooth loss going forwards.

There are various types of Manchester clear braces for patients to chose from. Six Month Smiles for instance is a system which focuses primarily on the teeth which are visible when a person smiles, rather than correcting the whole bite. It uses clear braces to gently straighten and align the teeth and treatment can be completed in some cases in as little as six weeks, and in most cases no longer than six months.

Invisalign is another popular technique which uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are replaced every two weeks as treatment progresses. Since they can be removed for eating and cleaning, they make it easy to maintain a good level of oral hygiene throughout treatment.

Invisible Braces

One of the latest orthodontic treatments we use is lingual braces. Manchester adults in particular, are embracing this modern technique since it uses brackets and wires at the back of the teeth to gently ease them into their correct position. The results are that it truly is ‘invisible’.

Even with clear braces, Manchester patients often find it difficult to brush and floss their teeth and as a result when the braces are eventually removed, there’s usually some type of decay that needs treating. Conversely lingual braces cause less damage (decay) to the teeth because they are fitted at the back of the teeth, which is another benefit of choosing them.

Secret Smiles Braces

You may have wondered how celebrities and people in the public eye go about their appearances if they’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Well we can reveal their secret! Known as ‘Secret Smiles Braces’ this innovative system is similar to lingual braces in that it fixes to the back of the teeth so that it can’t be seen. It works to fix all six teeth at the front but differs from lingual braces Manchester, in as much as it’s mostly used for improving the appearance of the smile rather than the actual bite. Due to this fact, treatment time is greatly reduced compared to that of traditional orthodontics.

If you’re tired of hiding your smile behind your hand then come and speak to the experienced orthodontic team here at Invisible Braces. Our extensive range of clear braces offers Manchester patients an opportunity to straighten their teeth and carry on smiling.
