Fastbraces are a relatively new treatment but they have been developed over a 20 year period. They work much quicker than traditional fixed braces because they move the tooth roots and the crown at the same time. Treatment is usually complete within 4-12 months.
One of the major bug-bears of orthodontic patients was the visibility of braces and the difference wearing a brace made to their appearance. Invisible braces provide a solution for image-conscious patients and straighten teeth without anyone even knowing it. Popular invisible brace systems include Invisalign and Clearstep, which both use clear aligners to gently guide the teeth into alignment. These treatments also offer patients flexibility as they can be removed for eating, drinking and cleaning the teeth, making them a popular choice for teenagers and adults.
The Inman Aligner is a revolutionary treatment which straightens the front teeth in a matter of weeks. The aligner is removable and uses the latest technology to prevent pain. The Inman Aligner is designed for patients who have minor problems that affect their front teeth, but it can also be effective for people who have suffered relapse after previous teeth straightening treatment.
Lingual braces are attached to the back of the teeth, rather than the front and have become popular with people who do not want their braces to be seen. Popular lingual brace systems include Incognito.
