Can You Straighten Your Teeth Without Braces?

dentist news november

Is it possible to straighten teeth without braces?

teeth straighteningBraces have helped millions of people achieve straighter teeth using a number of complex tightening and aligning techniques. There are now several teeth straightening options in the dentistry and orthodontic industry, from fixed braces through to more discrete options like Invisalign.

However, are there other methods that can achieve straight teeth without the need for braces?

Teeth Straightening Without Braces

teeth straighteningThere is currently a growing number of cosmetic businesses offering illegal teeth straightening services for a cheaper price than a professional clinic. These are not only illegal, but very dangerous as the vast majority of the people conducting the procedures have no medical training and are not certified to be performing such delicate procedures.

However, there is a safer, professional alternative to teeth straightening without braces: Invisalign.

Invisalign is a fairly new teeth straightening option that offers patients the opportunity to straighten their teeth without having to go down the braces route. Invisalign has gained popularity because of its non-invasive approach to teeth straightening.

Adults and teenagers alike may want to keep their teeth straightening journey discrete and Invisalign is the only trusted teeth straightening option backed by dental and orthodontic professionals.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign uses two transparent plastic aligners to slowly straighten your teeth and align them into the correct positions. The process begins with your orthodontist taking a mould of your teeth in order to design the two Invisalign aligners. Your aligners are specifically designed to fit comfortably in your mouth and are to be worn for approximately 20-22 hours a day.

Unlike traditional braces, you will need to remove your Invisalign aligners when eating, drinking and brushing your teeth. Every two weeks (depending on your tooth development and positioning), you will have to switch to your next set of Invisalign aligners. In theory, every two weeks your teeth will preposition slightly, meaning a new set of aligners will be required to continue to straightening process.

You will have to visit your orthodontist for checkups to ensure your teeth straightening process is developing healthily. In most cases, these checkups are quick and don’t require any orthodontic intervention, just a chat.

How Long Until I See Invisalign Results?

teeth straighteningTreatment time for Invisalign depends on the specific requirements of the patient and the rate of their tooth development. Invisalign treatment can last anywhere between 6 – 24 months, with the average treatment plan lasting around one year. Once treatment has completed its course, your orthodontist will likely provide you with a retainer to help your teeth get used to their new positions (the retainer is only worn at night).

Are There Other Teeth Straightening Options?

Aside from Invisalign, patients may also want to consider removable retainers, veneers, bonding and crowns. We have summarised the treatment details below:

  • Removable retainers
    • While there are technically three traditional retainer types, the Hawley retainer is by far the most popular. It’s a customised, removable retainer made from wires and helps gradually straighten your teeth.
  • Dental veneers
    • Dental veneers do not necessarily straighten teeth, they are simply used to reshape and sometimes colour teeth to give the impression they’re correctly aligned. Dental veneers are predominantly made from porcelain but are sometimes offer in resin composite materials. This is a swift procedure which doesn’t involve braces.
  • Dental crowns
    • Similar to veneers, dental crowns help visually straighten teeth without the need for braces. Dental crowns ‘cap’ poorly positioned teeth to help give them impression that they’re straight.
  • Dental bonding
    • Dental bonding is a quick procedure that can be completed in one visit to your orthodontist. Dental bonding is only used for very minor corrections and involves crafting a new shape for your tooth. The final result will see your new tooth material match the original colour and shape of your current teeth.

Ask the Dentist: Why good oral hygiene can literally result in a fuller flavour

orthodontics news october

Smell and taste “are in fact but a single composite sense, whose laboratory is the mouth and its chimney the nose…” So wrote Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, a French lawyer and politician. He was not a chef but he has been one of the most influential food writers of all time. He wrote the world’s first ever book on gastronomy in 1825.

What is generally categorised as “taste” is basically a bundle of different sensations. It’s not only the qualities of taste perceived by the tongue, but also the smell, texture and temperature of a meal that are important. Only after taste is combined with smell is a food’s flavour produced. If the sense of smell is impaired – by a stuffy nose, for instance – perception of taste is usually dulled as well.

Our Braces Treatments in Guildford

While we do allow patients to choose the braces option that they desire, we’re obligated to inform patients if their choice isn’t appropriate for their tooth development. However, this will be discussed during the consultation and we guarantee that we’ll be able to find a solution for you.

Each patient requires a bespoke treatment plan tailored to their specific requirements, and we’ll talk you through this during your consultation.

Below are the braces options we offer here at Splash Orthodontics:

Invisalign

Invisalign has become very popular with teenagers and people looking for more discrete braces options. Invisalign is made up of two transparent aligners, which must be removed when eating and drinking. While Invisalign is a fairly new treatment, it has seen strong success rates.

Monthly checkups are required for fixed braces to ensure your treatment is progressing as expected.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are also becoming popular because they combine the discreteness of Invisalign with the control of fixed braces. Lingual braces are attached to the back of your teeth, so the opposite to fixed braces. This means that they are hidden from immediate sight, making them a strong choice for those wanting to adopt a discrete treatment.

Early Treatment

All patients aged between 6-10 are encouraged to visit an orthodontist to ensure nothing is out of the ordinary. While there may be nothing wrong, an orthodontist will be able to tell if any future issues may arise. If so, your child will be given a treatment plan to ensure healthy oral development is achieved.

Teen Treatment

Teenagers and braces may not seem like a good mix but our treatment options can be designed to be as discrete as possible. Having a consultation with Dr Hoeltschi will be extremely beneficial and he will outline.

Adult Treatment

Below are the treatment options available to you. If you’d like to know more about these treatments and how they could benefit you, please do not hesitate to give our friendly team a call today.

Invisalign

Widely believed to be the most popular braces option at the moment, Invisalign is an appealing option because of it’s ‘invisible’ design. It’s a relatively new treatment, comprised of two clear, removable aligners. While Invisalign does offer discreteness, you do have to remove the clear aligners to eat, and they require regular cleaning.

While Invisalign hasn’t been around as long as fixed braces, they do produce consistent results.

Fixed Braces

Fixed braces remain one of the oldest and most successful braces options in the industry. They consistently produce exceptional results and offer best degree of control. Regular checkups are required for fixed braces, just to ensure they’re performing correctly and if any minor adjustments are required.

Lingual Braces

Patients looking for the control of fixed braces and the discreteness of Invisalign may want to consider lingual braces. Lingual braces are positioned behind your teeth (the back of your front teeth) so they’re out of immediate sight. Lingual braces combine a high degree of control with an element of discreteness.

Early Treatment

We advice all children between the ages of 6-10 to visit an orthodontist. While there may be no immediate issues, an orthodontist will be able to tell if future problems may arise and stop them before they do. This saves you both time and money further down the line. If there are any noticeable issues with your child’s oral health, a treatment plan will be created to ensure your child’s mouth develops healthily.

Teen Treatment

Teen treatment is more popular than ever due to the rise of the dental industry. We know that some teenagers may be slightly anxious regarding getting braces but our treatment options are designed to be as discrete and comfortable as possible.
