Clear Aligners, such as Invisalign, are a sequence of clear plastic mouthguards that are worn for normally 2 weeks each. Each aligner gently moves the tooth closer to the end result. Clear Aligners can sometimes move teeth in as little 4 months.
C-Fast is basically white "train-track" braces. It consists of small tooth coloured brackets and a sequence of coated tooth coloured wires. This moves your teeth in a similar way to conventional braces. These can sometimes move teeth in as little as 4-6 months
For those of you that would like a fixed retainer but don't want any metal, we can have the orthodontic lab 3D print a tooth coloured retainer that is bonded onto the back of you front teeth.
The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance that works by squeezing the teeth into the correct position. In some cases, It can move teeth in as little as 12-16 weeks.
No matter how you move teeth, you will ALWAYS require a retainer to keep the teeth in that position. Teeth can relapse to varying degrees. Retainers should be replaced, on average, every 18-24 months.
Using our state of the art 3D scanner, we now no longer need to use impressions for most orthodontics.
We would carry out a digital 3D scan of your teeth and can then move your teeth digitally to the ideal position allowing us to visualise the end result before we have even started.
