If you’re looking into Inman Aligner cost UK, or are seeking information on Invisalign braces Manchester then you may or may not know that you’re entering into a realm of dental care known as orthodontics. Manchester for example has a wealth of clinics that have orthodontic treatment centres, but what exactly is orthodontics?
In essence orthodontic treatments help move and straighten crooked, gapped, or flared teeth over a period of time by means of a brace system. Straight away you might associate this kind of treatment with those metallic train track style braces that many teenagers wear to help with crooked teeth. However even though they’re still used today with great results, this style of brace isn’t the only type of brace system on the market and besides, it isn’t particularly discreet.
Conversely when you speak to a dentist about orthodontics in Manchester they’ll talk to you about a multitude of treatments that are available, many of which are less discreet and in some cases, less time consuming. As a result more and more adults are now turning to treatments such as Invisalign braces in Manchester, Inman aligners, and other types of clear fixed braces to match their busy lives.
So what’s available?
There are in fact a wide selection of orthodontic treatments. For example if you’re only bothered about the aesthetics of your smile, then you can undergo an accelerated teeth straightening program using brace systems such as C-Fast, Six Month Smiles and Secret Smiles. All of these are designed to straighten those visible teeth (usually the front upper and lower) only. In most cases this can be achieved in somewhere between 3 and 6 months. Because these are quick fix solutions, they can’t unfortunately solve the problem of tooth root alignment or bite correction which takes longer to achieve.
For those who want their teeth and any underlying problems fixed, there are other alternatives to metallic style braces such as Inman aligners. Although Inman aligners cost UK patients somewhere between £1000 and £2500, they’re a great alternative to wire and clip style braces. They use a discreet nickel titanium coil spring that works alongside two inner and outer bows that are designed to push the teeth forward while pulling the other teeth back. As well as straightening crooked teeth, the Inman Aligner is also designed to help with protrusions, cross bites, crowding, or correcting rotations. Treatment can take up to 18 weeks but this is still quicker than the 18 months to 2 years that conventional braces can take.
What about those who want to get away from the spring and bracket style of brace altogether? Well there’s always Invisalign braces. Manchester clinics often recommend these for those that want to buck conventional braces for something different. As the name implies Invisalign braces are virtually invisible. Instead of using springs to push and pull the teeth into position, treatment involves a series of trays that are worn like gum shields over the teeth. Each attachment gently persuades the tooth to move ever so slightly, and as the different sized trays are changed the teeth gradually move into their new position. Treatment can take up to 18 months to complete where attachments are changed every 2 weeks. Individual attachments are completely unique and are made specifically for your teeth only.
