There’s been a revolution in orthodontics - and they’re not just for kids anymore!
With modern advances and new technologies, getting a straighter and brighter smile is easier and faster than ever. Whether you want to look your best for a big day, be picture perfect every day, or it's simply something you’ve always wanted to do, we have a treatment for you.
We carry out a thorough assessment before any treatment begins so you can be confident in your choice.
It’s also a perfect time to ask us any questions you might have and for us to get to know and understand your expectations.
At Quayside Dental and Implant Centre we offer our patients several different types of aesthetic, nearly invisible, braces that can help you achieve your best smile. You’ll look better, feel better and be confident knowing you look great during the treatment too!
ClearSmile Aligners are used to straighten your front 6-8 teeth. As the name suggests they are made of a clear, transparent plastic that fits over your teeth, comfortably and without interfering with your everyday activities.
This practically invisible treatment is ideal for straightening teeth that are crowded, rotated, or tilted forward or backwards. You will be given a new set of removable aligners each week to gently move your teeth into the desired position.
Depending on how much realignment is needed, you can have your desired smile in 3-12 months.
Inman Aligners are a proven and effective treatment designed to align your front teeth quickly and comfortably.
This deceptively simple and removable device uses a clever design with bows inside and outside the teeth to guide them into their desired position. Unlike other aligners, you will use the same device throughout your treatment.
When you wear your Inman Aligner for the recommended 16 to 20 hours a day you can expect your treatment to be complete in 8-16 weeks.
Six Month Smiles is a fixed brace alternative to the clear, removable aligners designed to correct a wider range of tooth movement and alignment.
They are like traditional braces in that they are made of wires and brackets but they are far more aesthetically pleasing with clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires.
It’s a modern twist on a safe and time-tested treatment that achieves brilliant results in 3-9 months.
Quayside Dental and Implant Centre also offers our patients a wide range of alternative removable appliances for those wishing to make only minor adjustments.
If you would like to discuss any of our Adult Orthodontic treatments please contact our surgery today for an appointment. We’d love to talk to you and discuss the possibilities.
For the most part, adult braces are relatively painless. But because we’re physically moving your teeth there’s a chance you might feel a slight ache for a couple of days after you begin treatment or when you first start using a new aligner. You can treat any discomfort with an over the counter pain reliever but most patients find the discomfort goes away pretty quickly on its own.
Straight teeth obviously look fantastic but they’re also an incredibly important part of a healthy lifestyle.
When your teeth are straight your bite allows you to chew your food better, which helps with digestion. It’s also easier to clean your teeth properly and prevent gum disease, which can lead to tooth decay and loss if it isn’t treated.
A lot of dental treatments can affect your speech for a short amount of time and braces can be one of them. But don’t worry! You’ll get used to the appliances pretty quickly and be talking like your old self in no time.
If aligners is part of your orthodontic treatment, you won’t be able to eat or drink anything other than water whilst they are in place. You will, of course, take them out when you are eating regular meals.
