Orthodontics

Orthodontics

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the alignment of the teeth and jaws, and how our teeth meet together (the bite). Many patients are unhappy with the alignment of their teeth for cosmetic reasons, as misaligned, crooked and crowded teeth can cause self-consciousness about smiling. Orthodontic problems can also lead to further dental health issues as poorly aligned teeth can be difficult to clean properly, leading to the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

Adult patients are often put off seeking orthodontic treatment because they think the only option available is obvious metal braces. However, there are several discreet orthodontic products available, and at Crofts Dental Practice we offer a wide range of treatment options. Unlike some other practices, we are not affiliated to one particular company and will always put our patients’ interests first when considering treatment.

Unlike many practices that offer one main system to straighten teeth, we evaluate your aims and lifestyle and help you choose a system that is right for you. We can offer you all of the main orthodontic systems.

We offer a full spectrum of orthodontic services, from complex cases that require extractions to simpler cosmetic cases that can be fixed quickly. Our dentist offers a free consultation during which the pros and cons of all appropriate treatments will be fully explained.

Here are some of the discreet orthodontic solutions we offer:

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is a clear, removable aligner that uses gentle, opposing forces to guide the teeth into a new position. It is used to align the front teeth quickly and safely, and is removable so you can take it out to eat and to clean your teeth.

Invisalign

Invisalign uses a series of bespoke clear aligners to gently move your teeth into a new position. You change your aligner every two weeks and each set of aligners is tailor-made to fit your teeth. Invisalign is removable and uses a virtual 3D treatment plan so that you can see exactly what results to expect.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are like regular braces, comprising brackets and wires. However, the major difference is that they are placed on the inside surface of the teeth, so they will not be visible when you smile. They can be used to treat simple and complex orthodontic problems.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are one of the quickest ways to straighten teeth – as the name suggests, treatment lasts an average of six months. They use tooth-coloured, fixed nickel titanium wires, which move teeth quickly and reliably, and treatment time is so quick because they focus on the front teeth – those that show when you smile.

These are just some of the orthodontic treatments we offer. Please contact the practice to book a free consultation where we can discuss all the options available to you. We also offer half-price teeth whitening treatment to patients who have had orthodontic treatment with us.

Unlike many practices that offer one main system to straighten teeth, we evaluate your aims and lifestyle and help you choose a system that is right for you. We can offer you all of the main orthodontic systems.
