Exploring clear braces for adult tooth straightening

Clear braces are a popular modern treatment option for adults who want to straighten their teeth. At Simply Teeth Essex dental practice, we use the Invisalign system of removable clear braces, alongside Six Month Smiles and FastBraces tooth-coloured fixed appliance. Each system is best suited to different orthodontic circumstances, and your dentist will establish which is most appropriate for your case when you come to our Essex clinic for a teeth straightening consultation.

Orthodontic treatment is now seen as standard for children and teenagers, but there are also an increasing number of adults seeking teeth straightening help. Clear braces are more compatible with a busy adult lifestyle than fixed metal appliances. The treatment times are often shorter, too.

Whilst it may be aesthetic concerns that bring you into our Essex dental practice for a clear braces consultation, you shouldn’t forget that there are both dental and general health benefits to be achieved from teeth straightening treatment, too.

Dental plaque can easily build up in the gaps or spaces between crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth, and it can be difficult to clean these areas effectively at home. This can lead to gum disease, dental decay, and even tooth loss. Numerous studies have linked gum disease with general health conditions, from heart disease to rheumatoid arthritis, so it’s clear that straightening your teeth is good for your overall wellbeing.

Essex clear braces

Come into Simply Teeth Essex for a clear braces consultation and your dentist will conduct a clinical examination, using the latest software to aid with diagnosis and treatment planning. They will also be able to show you the results you can expect before treatment begins.

Treatment with Invisalign clear braces involves using a series of clear, removable appliances, which will fit comfortably over your teeth and guide them into a new position. You change your aligner every fortnight, and will need to wear a retainer on completion of treatment to ensure your teeth stay where they should.
