Three things you need to know about braces in Farnham

January 11, 2018


There are ways to customise your teeth straightening treatment

Each teeth straightening treatment that we offer at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic is different. Our plans are made to fit the individual needs of each patient. There may be different options you can choose from to ensure that your treatment suits your needs.

For example, you may want fast work that concentrates primarily on the teeth that are visible when you smile. Or you might need more extensive treatment that corrects issues with the bite or relieve moderate crowding.

Some teeth straightening methods are removable

One of the solutions we offer is the Invisalign removable aligner, which can fix a large range of teeth straightening issues, such as overcrowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, crossbites, overbites and underbites.

Invisalign in Farnham can straighten teeth using a series of nearly invisible aligners that are custom made to fit your teeth. Unlike traditional fixed braces, there are no metal brackets or wires.

Using advanced three-dimensional computer-imaging technology, your Farnham dentist can plan your Invisalign treatment from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired result. You can see your virtual results before you even begin, so you will know how your teeth are expected to look when treatment is complete.

Your series of clear aligners are then custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth. They are made from a strong medical grade thermoplastic material, uniquely developed for the Invisalign system.

Although aligners should be worn all the time they are removable, giving you the flexibility to eat and drink most things during treatment by simply removing them. You can also remove aligners to brush and floss as usual, but you should fit them in place afterwards.

Each aligner is worn for up to two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving your teeth towards the projected final position; your Invisalign treatment timings will be determined by your Farnham dentist. The average treatment time is between 6 to 18 months, depending on your specific needs.

You can get the smile you want in a matter of months

Modern braces in Farnham can give you the smile you want in as little as six months, or even less for minor issues. This means you can plan ahead for a special occasion and decide to get your teeth fixed in time.

Sometimes, teeth straightening treatment does take longer than this. At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic, we aim to make all your visits as comfortable and effective as possible so that, no matter how long it takes, you are happy with the course of your treatment. This includes giving you an idea of the timescale involved before you start.
