Enjoying life with braces: a guide to successful orthodontic treatment

Written by Elmsleigh House | 02-Nov-2016 10:50:53

Braces are still, in many cases, the best way to straighten teeth. At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham we appreciate the need for discretion when it comes to adult orthodontic treatment. That’s why we offer subtler options than traditional metal orthodontic appliances, with both discreet braces and removable aligners to choose from.

At our Farnham dental practice we offer both rapid, mainly cosmetic focussed correction and treatment of more extensive issues, including those affecting your bite. When you come to our clinic you will have an in-depth consultation with an orthodontist in order to ascertain your clinical needs – the type and the amount of correction that is required.

Farnham braces and aligners

Among the options available for Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic are:

Cfast braces

Cfast are designed for quick correction of conditions affecting the front six to eight teeth. They have clear brackets for maximum discretion, and are useful for conditions including:

  • Crowding
  • Gummy smiles
  • Protruding front teeth


An alternative to fixed braces, treatment with Invisalign involves the use of a series of clear, removable aligners to guide your teeth into a new position gradually. Thanks to the advanced ClinCheck computer software that supports Invisalign, your Farnham dentist or orthodontist will be able to show you the results you can expect from treatment before it begins.

Typical treatment times are between 12 and 16 months.

Incognito lingual braces

Incognito lingual braces are attached to the rear surfaces of your teeth, meaning that nobody needs to know you are having treatment unless you choose to tell them, because they will be invisible in everyday life. These braces can correct a wide range of orthodontic issues, with treatment typically taking between 12 and 18 months.

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is a popular, single aligner that is used to correct specific issues affecting the front teeth quickly and discreetly. This aligner uses gentle pressure to improve crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. Acting in between six and 18 weeks, this is the quickest orthodontic option at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham.

Whatever your orthodontic needs, at our Farnham clinic we will find the perfect braces or aligners for you.
