Optimise your teeth

For people who need braces in Kent, Staplehurst Dental Practice offers several options that might surprise you with their comfort and speed. We use modern braces to minimise the potential discomfort and social awkwardness that sometimes deters people from seeking the changes they need.


Look and feel


The complexity of your dental situation will determine which appliance you need. It could be the Invisalign system, which is a removable appliance moulded from clear plastic. Or it could be Six Month Smiles, a set of tooth-coloured braces that are attached to the teeth for the duration of the treatment. Either way, we believe that your choice to improve your teeth shouldn’t mean that unwanted attention is drawn to your mouth. At parties or meetings in Kent, braces like these might go unnoticed.


The right approach for you


The first stage of your treatment will be a detailed consultation at our friendly practice, where we’ll find out what’s best for you, and how best to achieve this. You might just want your front teeth realigning because you find them too prominent. Or dental crowding might mean you want the whole set of teeth brought into new positions.


Whatever your teeth look like right now, straighter teeth will be better for your health. They put less strain on the jaw because the function more efficiently. And they’re easier to keep clean, because there’ll be fewer awkward spaces for food debris and plaque to hide in. So when you opt for braces in Kent, you’re looking after your overall condition while improving your smile.


A short-term method with lasting benefits


Guiding the teeth into better positions takes time. Before your treatment begins, your dentist will tell you how long it will take. Sometimes this is as little as six months, but for complex needs it could be 18 months or longer. And after it’s finished, you may need to wear a retainer at night, to make sure the teeth are firmly settled in to their places. But once you’re through this period of adjustment, you’ll enjoy the positive changes for many years to come.
