The braces question

Any adults thinking about getting their teeth straightened probably do not require major bite correction, otherwise they would have qualified for braces in Farnhamon the NHS as a teenager. People with mild misalignments are beginning to appreciate the many benefits to having braces, even if they are simply to feel better and look better.

The increase in popularity of braces among adults has been driven by the introduction of new materials and techniques that have led to smaller and more discreet braces, and even entirely new methods. There are various systems of braces in Farnham on offer from reputable dentists such as Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic. Some of these are:

Inman Aligner

This aligner features springs and coils to move the front teeth with gently opposing forces. Super-quick treatment times can be as little as 6-18 weeks. The Inman Aligner is a removable device, which makes eating and cleaning the teeth as easy as ever. Plus, it doubles up as a retainer after the teeth are realigned. This makes the Inman Aligner very cost-effective.

CFast braces

Another brand of fixed braces using tooth-coloured brackets and wires that blend in with the teeth rather than dominating them. CFast braces are designed for use on the front teeth, but can also level and round out the arches.

When people have had their teeth straightened, they find they are smiling more often and more spontaneously. They notice how people they meet in passing smile back, on the bus, on the street, across a crowded room. They also find that smiles can turn into new jobs, new friends, new sources of fun and help and connectedness.

Patients who want to find out which one is best for their issues need to make an appointment for a consultation. Some systems offer free consultations, and some include free teeth whitening at the end of treatment.

Most systems also include the need to wear a retainer at the end of treatment to hold the teeth in place until they settle in properly, which takes about a year.

Braces in Farnhamcan be quite an investment for some people, which is why many dentists offer payment plans to help spread the cost of treatment into monthly payments.
