- 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, but you also get value for money too.
- Efficiency – Treatment times for fixed clear braces in Manchester are on 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.
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 in Manchester and invisible braces. Therefore, Manchester patients needn’t worry about how they look because discretion is definitely key with systems such as lingual braces or Invisalign®.
Brace systems for children
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 the most successful results. In the main, treatment takes anywhere between 9-24 months, but individual cases may differ.
Brace systems for adults
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 in Manchester are in much demand. They’re designed to fix spacing, overcrowding, and malocclusion problems but are far less noticeable to other people. While the process is largely 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.
Whether you’re an adult or the parent of a child who needs orthodontic treatment, come and visit our orthodontist in Manchester today and talk to us about how we can help you or your child improve or restore their smile. We have a wide selection of conventional, tooth-coloured, invisible, and hidden braces in Manchester, all designed to fit in with your needs and your requirements.
What are the advantages of fixed clear braces in Manchester?
What types of conditions can fixed tooth-coloured braces treat?
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.
Do teeth need to be removed before orthodontic treatment?
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 their smile and, ultimately, their dental health.
Secondly, when a tooth protrudes, it flares away from the bone. In this instance, if it were to be moved back to its 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, when carried out correctly, only you and your dental team will know that you’ve had teeth removed.
