The prospect of teeth straightening no longer features the dreaded metal ‘train track’ braces of the past. While metal braces are still associated with a stereotypical image of children and teenagers, modern options are more lightweight and have improved in terms of appearance, comfort and treatment time.
At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic, we offer a wide range of teeth straightening treatment options to help you achieve a healthy and attractive smile. Braces in Farnham are either fixed or removable and can be worn by children, teenagers and adults. Our experienced dentists will examine your teeth and help you choose the right braces for you.
Modern metal braces are anything but old-fashioned. Improvements in materials and technology have made modern brackets smaller and less cumbersome. The archwires that help move and align the teeth have also been improved, with innovative technology allowing them to move your teeth more effectively and with less discomfort than in the past. Metal braces can treat many teeth straightening problems for all ages, including severely crooked teeth.
An alternative to metal braces, Invisalign consists of a series of clear, plastic aligners that can be removed and cleaned at any given time. By wearing these customised aligners for 22 hours a day, your teeth will gradually shift into the correct positions without anyone knowing that you are undergoing dental treatment. Invisalign aligners are ideal for professionals who wish to straighten their smiles discreetly.
Lingual braces are entirely invisible, since they are fixed on the tongue-side surface of the teeth. Incognito lingual braces in Farnham work just like conventional metal braces and can straighten your teeth in about a year.
At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic, we also offer faster teeth straightening treatments for adult patients with overcrowded or gapped teeth. Cfast braces in particular consist of clear brackets and nickel-titanium wires that apply gentle pressure to move the front teeth into the correct position in around six to nine months.
