Can invisible braces Wimpole Street correct my misaligned teeth?

The things that mankind has achieved in the past fifty years is nothing short of astonishing, the technological discoveries that have changed our lives. Dentistry has been developing at an astronomical rate along with technology. First, there were metal braces, now we have invisible braces Wimpole Street. Metal braces were an achievement in themselves, and they helped many patients, mainly children, to straighten their teeth. They were not the most comfortable dental appliance, but in their day, they did the job. Metal braces have now been redesigned to be far more comfortable and effective. Invisible braces Wimpole Street can most definitely correct your misaligned teeth; there are a number of applications, and the treatment has become more targeted.

Dedicated to improving your smile

It takes a long road requiring commitment and dedication to provide orthodontic treatment. At Boston Orthodontics, our Dr Keser has been on that journey, starting as a dentist and then graduating to specialise in orthodontics, serving as an assistant professor and working as a researcher.

Treatments available

In the past, braces were very one dimensional and relied on blocks, wires and bands to gradually pull your teeth into alignment. The braces were fitted to the front of the teeth and required regular returns to the dental surgery for adjustments. While that type of brace is still available, it now comes in different guises. The traditional metal braces that have been vastly improved over the decades are still used today. Ceramic braces work in much the same way as metal braces but they are either clear or tooth-coloured, making them more attractive, especially for adults.

Self-ligating braces work almost the same as metal and ceramic but without the use of bands. In place of bands, these braces rely on a mechanism referred to as “doors” or “clips”, which slide on a wire. This system reduces the amount of friction and offers a more comfortable solution than metal or ceramic braces. They are also available in a variety of colours as well as metal. Lingual braces offer a less obtrusive solution as they can be fitted behind the teeth and are, therefore, less conspicuous.

The arrival of clear braces or aligners

Invisible braces Wimpole Street are the latest invention to correct misaligned teeth, and they work in a new and innovative way. These braces resemble gum shields as you can wear them over your teeth, and they are made of a clear dental material. After a thorough examination, a series of trays are created, each with its own orientation. Each tray must be worn for a minimum of 22 hours per day and can be removed before you eat, drink, brush or floss. Treatment is dependent on the condition being corrected and will generally take anywhere from 6 to 12 months to be completed.

End of treatment

At the end of the treatment, you must wear a retainer for a few weeks to allow your teeth to settle in their new positions. Once this settlement period is over, you can reveal your beautiful smile to the world.
