Metal braces are no longer the only way to straighten your teeth. In the 21st Century there are numerous discreet alternatives available, and Kent clinic Staplehurst Dental Practice offers both fixed braces and removable aligners to improve the position and alignment of your teeth.
There are numerous additional benefits to teeth straightening treatment in addition to creating a beautiful smile. At our Kent clinic we are always keen to point out the benefits such treatment can bring to your dental and general health. By making your teeth easier to keep clean, with fewer gaps for dental plaque to amass, you can reduce your risk of the two leading causes of tooth loss – gum disease and tooth decay – by straightening your teeth.
Of course, you need to pay regular visits to our Kent clinic for check-ups with the dentist and appointments with the hygienist, but by straightening your teeth with either braces or aligners you can enjoy significant health benefits.
When you come into Staplehurst Dental Practice in Kent for a teeth straightening consultation, your dentist will perform a thorough clinical examination to determine which is the best treatment option to suit your needs.
Depending on your clinical situation, your Kent dentist may recommend. . .
Six Month Smiles are popular cosmetic braces that work, as the name suggests, in an average time of half a year. They work so quickly because they focus on the “social six” front teeth that show when you smile. Made from clear and tooth-coloured components, Six Month Smiles braces are very discreet because they blend in with the natural colour of your teeth.
An alternative to braces, Invisalign involves using a series of clear, removable aligners to gently reposition your teeth. These aligners make it easy to maintain dental hygiene because you just take them out to clean and to brush your teeth as normal.
Standard Invisalign treatment involves using a series of aligners to progressively move your teeth little-by-little.
At our Kent practice we also offer Invisalign i7, for quick correction of minor issues, and Invisalign Teen, specifically made for teenagers’ needs.Back to Blog
