Braces are an excellent teeth straightening option for patients of all ages. At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham, we have a dedicated in-house orthodontist, Kostas Spathoulas, who can provide effective brace solutions for adults, teenagers, and children.
If you think that braces equate obvious metal appliances, it’s time to think again. Modern orthodontic treatment can be very discreet – depending on your individual circumstances, your appliance could be practically invisible.
Of course, traditional metal braces are still a very efficient way of moving your teeth, and many children and teenagers enjoy the customisation options that are available with modern metal brace systems. Whatever your age and whatever your treatment requirements and preferences, when you come to our Farnham dental clinic for a consultation, your orthodontist will talk you through the pros and cons of all relevant teeth straightening systems.
Kostas offers a number of options for straightening children’s teeth at our Farnham dental clinic. These include:
Low-friction Damon fixed braces, which can correct a wide range of issues in between nine and 24 months.
Using computer-aided smile design and custom-made, low-friction Insignia braces in between 12 and 15 months.
We offer several discreet orthodontic options for adults. Again, the best system will be determined when you come to our Farnham dental clinic for a consultation with our orthodontist. Options include:
Incognito lingual braces – This system involves attaching metal braces to the rear, or lingual, surfaces of your teeth. They are designed to correct a full spectrum of orthodontic problems, and will be invisible in everyday life.
Invisalign – A series of clear, removable, custom-made aligners are used to gently guide your teeth into a new position. These aligners require no special dental hygiene practices, because you can take them out to brush your teeth.
Cfast braces – This tooth-coloured system can correct issues such as crowding, protruding teeth and gummy smiles. The average treatment time is just six months.
Inman Aligner – This single-use clear, removable aligner is great for treating adult relapse and protruding front teeth. This is one of the fastest-acting systems at our Farnham clinic, taking on average between six and 16 weeks.
