Clear bracesThere is a definite trend going on in the world of adult dentistry that sees more and more people well out of their teens opting for teeth straightening treatments, and in Beaconsfield, clear braces availability is one reason why. Adults love the benefits of clear braces, which is why more and more dentists are training in delivering this treatment.

In Beaconsfield, clear braces are available from reputable dentists such as Garden View Dental Care. Having clear braces means that people can go about their daily business without being stared at or having to fend off unwanted personal questions about undergoing dental treatment. There is also still an association between teeth straightening and being a teenager. All of these aspects of teeth straightening are things that people in public-facing jobs, or positions of authority wish to avoid. Fortunately, now, in Beaconsfield, clear braces are on offer and there is even choice in clear straightening systems.

Six Month Smiles

This clear braces treatment relies on the tried and trust mechanics of metal bracket and wire braces, but with a twist: the brackets are much smaller and are made of transparent ceramic, and the wires are finer and tooth-coloured. This is made possible because Six Month Smiles is only aimed at repositioning misalignments in the front 6 social teeth, and therefore uses much gentler forces to do its work. As the movements to alignment are usually pretty small, Six Month Smiles treatments take between 4 and 9 months, with an average of 6 months. Patients need to wear a retainer afterwards while the teeth settle into their new positions.

Not braces, but a series of almost invisible, rigid plastic aligners that incrementally shift the teeth into position. These 3D printed aligners snap on over the teeth and have the great advantage of being removable. This means that the patient can take them out for eating and teeth cleaning. An added unintentional benefit is that because they must be worn for at least 20 hours a day, there’s no time for mindless snacking and coffee drinking, and patients often lose weight too.
