One of the main factors largely responsible for the increase in orthodontic treatments in adults and children has been tooth-coloured braces. Manchester patients for example who have had these fitted will notice right away that they offer a minimal visual impact which is far less visible than that of conventional metal appliances.
For any patients who prefer a totally discreet brace system then our orthodontist in Manchester can help with that too. We also offer a selection of hidden braces Manchester and invisible braces. Manchester patients therefore needn't worry about the way they look because with systems such as lingual braces or Invisalign, discretion is definitely key.
Low impact – Tooth coloured braces are far less visible than conventional metal-style braces. Tooth coloured brackets and translucent wiring create a visibly low impact system that children and adults alike appreciate.
Great value – When it comes to cost, tooth-coloured braces in Manchester are one of the most cost-effective fixed brace systems available. So not only do you get teeth straightening with discretion, you get value for money too.
Efficiency – Treatment times for fixed clear braces in Manchester are on a par with conventional metal braces and what's more, they're proven to deliver great results so your teeth aren't compromised in any way.
Tooth-coloured braces have the ability to fix the vast majority of tooth problems that conventional metal-style braces deal with. These include teeth that are crooked, crowded, out of alignment, protruding, or smiles that have irregular spacing. They work by applying a sustained and gentle force to gradually move teeth back into position over a period of time. However before determining whether tooth-coloured or hidden braces in Manchester are right for you, it's important that patients understand what the treatment involves.
Typically children inherit irregular tooth spacing, malocclusions, or teeth over-crowding from their parents. However some of these problems can also be caused and/or exacerbated by habits such as thumb sucking, nail biting, and tongue thrusting. Normally issues are noticeable in children between the ages of 6 and 12. This is also typically the time that permanent teeth come through. Because of this, for any child with teeth problems, visiting an orthodontist in Manchester between the ages of 8-14 is ideal in order to achieve best results. In the main, treatment takes anywhere between 9-24 months, but individual cases may differ.
In some cases, particularly with teeth overcrowding, it may be necessary for a dentist to extract or remove healthy teeth before the orthodontist can fit braces. This can be for several reasons. Firstly, it could be that the child's mouth is just too small to hold all of their teeth comfortably and at present they are impacting on their smile and ultimately, their dental health.
Secondly, when a tooth is protruded it's simply flared away from the bone. In this instance if it were to be moved back to it's original position it would overlap with the other teeth causing overcrowding. Once space is created by removing the tooth, it's then closed using orthodontic treatment to eliminate any tooth gapping. Either way, if carried out correctly, only you and your dental team will know that you've had teeth removed.
Most adults don't particularly want to be seen sporting a metallic smile, yet they do want straighter teeth and a healthier smile. This is why discreet fixed tooth-coloured braces, lingual braces, and invisible braces Manchester are much in demand. Again they're designed to fix spacing, overcrowding, and malocclusion problems, but are far less noticeable to other people. While the process is exactly the same for adults as it is for children, adult patients need to be aware that treatment may take slightly longer. This is because unlike children, their facial bones can no longer grow and certain corrections aren't possible using orthodontic treatments alone.
In addition many adults also need quick fix solutions to deal with the aesthetics of their smile and this is why fast tooth-coloured braces in Manchester are popular. They're designed to deal with only the front upper and lower teeth which are visible when you smile. As such treatments can be completed in as little as a few weeks.
