Teeth straightening giving you more to smile about

There is no doubt that straight teeth are generally healthy teeth, and having your teeth straightened is one way to improve your oral health. If your teeth are crooked, uneven or out of alignment, you may find that they are more difficult to keep clean, they may also wear down unevenly. The most widely used method of teeth straightening is with braces of various types. At Staplehurst Dental in Kent, teeth straightening is one of the treatments that we offer patients of all ages. Although it is generally more effective to have your teeth straightened when you are a teenager and are still growing, you can have your teeth straightened at any age.


The reason that many of us resign ourselves to living with crooked teeth is because we assume that we will have to wear traditional metal braces. You may also be put off by the thought of having to wear braces for a long time before your teeth are straight.


Neither of these ideas is true any more; there are now braces that have been specifically designed with adults in mind and work on your front teeth, meaning that you can have straight teeth in around six months.

At Staplehurst Dental, we use two different brands of braces, Six Month Smiles and Invisalign removable aligners. Depending on your personal requirements, your dentist will recommend the most suitable brace for you. Six Month Smiles is a fixed brace that uses tooth-coloured brackets and wires on just your front teeth. This system is very discreet and works on your teeth 24 hours a day so that you will see the results in just six months.


Invisalign aligners are clear removable trays which, for maximum effectiveness, must be worn for 20 hours each day, only being removed when eating and for cleaning your teeth and the aligners. All the aligners that you need are made at the beginning of your treatment and each one is worn for two weeks before being changed. Our Invisalign range includes the standard Invisalign system, Invisalign i7 and Invisalign Teen. To find out more about teeth straightening in Kent make your appointment today.
