The quest for the perfect smile can be challenging – especially for adults with crooked, crowded or gapped teeth. While traditional braces are very effective in aligning the teeth and treating various dental problems, most adults are not really excited at the prospect of wearing them.
Adults who are looking to maintain a professional look, can opt for discreet braces in Leeds. A dentist, such as Enhancedental, can help patients find the right treatment and devices to safely realign their teeth into their correct position. Just like every dental procedure, teeth straightening should be supervised by an experienced dentist to avoid any dangers.
Different types of discreet braces
Depending on each patient’s circumstances and the reason why they wish to straighten their teeth, a dentist may recommend treatments such as the Inman Aligner or Invisalign.
The Inman Aligner is a device that helps straighten the front teeth. This treatment uses a coiled nickel titanium spring that creates forces on the inside or the back of the teeth. The Inman Aligner also consists of a bar that runs across the front teeth and intends to gently guide them into position. The Inman Aligner is removable and results can be seen in only a few weeks.
Invisalign, on the other hand, is another removable device that helps push teeth into their correct position. Invisalign plastic aligners are very durable and can be removed on the spot in case a patient has to eat or brush their teeth.
Do discreet braces in Leeds live up to all the hype?
As with most dental treatments, the most important step for a patient is to choose the right treatment for them. The Inman Aligner is ideal for older teenagers and adults who require minor work to their front teeth. Invisalign can be used by teenagers and adults alike, but since it is predominantly a cosmetic treatment, it cannot help with very complex dental issues such as severely misaligned, twisted, rotated or heavily crooked teeth. On the positive side, both treatments reduce the number of visits to the dentist drastically and unlike regular braces they are removable.
