Clear View Braces – Why The Need For Discreet Brace Systems

Clear View Braces – Why The Need For Discreet Brace Systems

Teeth straightening, known in the dental industry as orthodontics, traditionally uses metal brackets and wiring to correct the positioning of teeth. By contrast, more discreet options are emerging and one such type is clear view braces. Clear fixed braces Manchester carry out the same task as conventional ‘train track’ style brace systems in that they move teeth back to their original position using gentle applied force. However, they’re far less likely to be noticed when you smile or speak.

So why the need for discreet braces?

In the 21st century, people are seen to be spending more of their disposable income on cosmetic treatments including getting straighter teeth. However many adults don’t want to be seen wearing a mouth full of metal. For this reason the discreet brace system was born. Now you can get a wide variety of orthodontic treatments ranging from cheap clear braces Manchester, through to the high end treatments such as Invisalign.

So just how discreet are they?  

In a word, very! Most clear fixed braces in Manchester are made from polycarbonate, whereas removable aligner style braces such as Invisalign are generally made from acrylic. Both are a type of plastic derivative. Many ‘bracket and wiring’ style clear view braces also come with ceramic tooth coloured brackets and thin nickel/titanium wiring, all of which are hard to spot unless you are looking close up.

Conversely, removable acrylic aligner style braces such as Invisalign are even more discreet because they don’t use brackets and wires. Instead they rely on a series of trays (aligners) which are worn over the teeth just like a clear gum shield – the idea being that each aligner gently moves the teeth a certain distance. When a specific position is reached, the current aligner is removed and the next aligner is put in place. This continues until the teeth have reached their final position. Invisalign braces are normally kept in a brightly coloured case because just like a contact lens, when an aligner is taken out and placed on a counter top, it can be very hard to spot. Now that’s discreet!

So do clear view braces have any down sides?

In a word no! Most systems can do anything conventional metal bracket and wiring style braces do. The only difference is that they’re just not so obvious. If we’re going to be picky, the only downside is that even cheap clear braces Manchester are fractionally more expensive than traditional metal style brace systems. Also, because discreet braces are more of a cosmetic choice, they aren’t usually available from an NHS dentist.

Lingual Braces Manchester – How They Differ From Other Systems

Lingual Braces Manchester – How They Differ From Other Systems

Chances are that if you’ve done any research on orthodontic treatments you’ll have come across lingual braces. Manchester residents looking to undergo treatment might be surprised to learn that they are unlike any other form of cheap clear braces Manchester. In fact despite many of the benefits that clear braces offers Manchester patients, the lingual variety have one trump card that others don’t and that’s total invisibility.

Otherwise known as incognito braces, lingual braces are custom made to fit onto the inside surface of the teeth (lingual means tongue). In doing so they offer all the benefits that other fixed brace systems have by offering the best possible results, but they can’t be seen when you smile, or eat. Ultimately this means that for anyone who for either personal or professional reasons doesn’t want others to know that they’re wearing them, they offer the ideal solution

So what’s different about Lingual braces Manchester?

Unlike many other forms of cheap clear braces Manchester, lingual braces are generally classed as a longer term treatment (although there are varieties of lingual brace that are shorter term). In most cases treatment takes anywhere between 1 and 2 years to complete depending upon the severity of the patient’s case. Also unlike many other types of fast orthodontic treatments, lingual braces can treat an entire arch of teeth, not just the upper and lower front teeth that are visible when you smile. They can also straighten tooth roots and deal with specific issues such as bite alignment.

Are there any downsides?

Firstly while many clear braces offers Manchester patients a cheaper alternative to teeth straightening, lingual braces are more expensive. This is because of the fact that they’re fully customised to your specific requirements. The other downside is that because they’re fitted to the inside of teeth they can take longer to adapt to, and in some cases they may affect speech at first. That said, the majority of wearers state that they fully settled into them within 2-3 weeks.

The making and fitting process explained

The first stage upon deciding that you want lingual braces is to visit the dentist for some impressions of your teeth. Once these have been done, they’re sent off to a centralised laboratory where your bespoke braces are made. This can take around 4-6 weeks.

Once your braces have come back from the laboratory we’ll invite you to back to the practice to attach the braces. This takes on average 1-2 hours and is a pain free process. You will of course need to keep your mouth open for much of this period, but apart from this, there is no drilling or injections involved.

After the brace is fitted you’ll be invited back to our practice every 6-10 weeks so that we can check on progress, but aside from this you can carry on your normal life with nobody aware that you even have them. When you come back to see us, we’ll normally adjust the tension of the wire so that your teeth can move some more. You may feel a little discomfort at first but this is usually brought under control quickly using over-the-counter pain killers.

The bottom line is that lingual braces Manchester offer the ideal solution for those people needing long-term orthodontic treatments but who really don’t want to be seen wearing braces. They’re also becoming increasingly popular with older teenagers too. In both scenarios, incognito braces offer the perfect solution.

Clear Braces Manchester – Helping More Than Just Your Smile

Clear Braces Manchester – Helping More Than Just Your Smile

For those who suffer with crooked or misaligned teeth one sure-fire way to solve the problem is to be fitted with orthodontic braces. Manchester patients have a variety of choice when it comes to wearing braces and these can range from cheap clear braces Manchester, through to modern conventional bracket and wire style systems.

Despite the fact that orthodontic treatment can successfully help with a wide variety of dental problems, it isn’t just your teeth that benefit from clear braces. Manchester patients will be pleased to know that there are also other major benefits too. Let’s take a closer look.

Gives you a real confidence boost

A smile is one of the main ways in which we interact positively with others and we also use it to express degrees of happiness. If you can’t or won’t express a smile because of the way your teeth look, you could be holding yourself back in social situations. As such it’s easy to come across to others as lacking confidence or aloof. In some circumstances people tend to withdraw from situations altogether so that they don’t have to feel embarrassed about their teeth and ultimately this can take its toll on a person’s self esteem.

What orthodontic clear braces Manchester can do is to carry out the task of straightening the teeth over a period of time, but in a discreet way. This means that eventually teeth will be straighter, the smile is restored, and so too will be some of that much needed confidence.

Helping your overall health

When your teeth don’t line up as they should it can make it difficult to bite and chew food properly. This could mean that many of the essential nutrients contained in certain foods that the body needs to thrive aren’t fully extracted. In a worst case scenario this can lead to a whole host of health problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, diabetes, and temporo-mandibular disorder (TMD). Even a set of cheap clear braces Manchester has the ability to straighten the teeth to fully restore proper bite function and therefore aid proper nutrition.

Teeth become easier to clean

Misaligned teeth are considerably more difficult to keep clean as food particles often become trapped between recesses of the teeth. When this happens they become hard to access with normal brushing and flossing. As a result food debris and particles can build up which in turn can cause tooth decay. Conversely the straighter the teeth the easier they are to clean and floss and ultimately the healthier your teeth will remain.

Why Would You Opt For Cheap Clear Braces Manchester

Why Would You Opt For Cheap Clear Braces Manchester?

The term ‘cheap clear braces Manchester‘ might sound like it’s something you’d want to steer clear of, especially when it comes to your teeth. However anyone looking to undergo orthodontic treatment might be surprised to learn that the only thing that’s cheap about them is the price and not the quality. Similarly to Manchester Invisalign or an Inman Aligner Manchester, cheap clear braces offer the perfect balance of sound orthodontic treatment and good value for money.

So how much do they cost?

First of all it’s worth pointing out that cheap clear braces still cost more than conventional metal braces. That’s because they utilise expensive materials such as nickel titanium and ceramic to create a lighter, comfortable, tooth-coloured brace system that’s discreet. Cost does vary from one practice to another, but on average you can expect to pay around £2000-£3500 depending upon the style. This is still considerably less expensive than Invisalign which utilises a series of custom-made trays, known as aligners, to straighten teeth

So are they worth it?

Cheap clear braces in Manchester certainly have their advantages. Firstly they’re less visible than conventional metallic style braces, so are a god choice for those who don’t like the thought of showing a mouthful of metal when they smile. They’re also arguably more discreet than an Inman Aligner. Manchester patients will be only too aware of the thin metal bar that runs across the front of the teeth for example. They’re also stain resistant, so they won’t become discoloured over time, and of course, they offer both long and short-term orthodontic solutions that won’t cost you the earth.

The next time you consider Manchester Invisalign or an Inman Aligner Manchester but can’t really justify the cost, then why not take a look at cheap clear braces Manchester. They really do provide a discreet and comfortable orthodontic experience that won’t break the bank.

If you’re still undecided about the right type of orthodontic treatment to suit your needs, then come and talk to us here at Church Road Dental and Cosmetics. We’ve been providing orthodontic solutions for both children and adults for many years, so why not book yourself a no-obligation consultation with Dr Shi Karim and the team.
