Hyde Park Dental Clinic offers both of these orthodontic treatments and both have their merits. Six Month Smiles in Bayswater is very popular as it is a short-term orthodontic treatment using a fixed dental brace. As you might’ve guessed, treatment is usually completed within just six months, and even though the braces are fixed in place they are virtually invisible as they use clear brackets and wires that are designed to blend in with your natural tooth colour. One of the great things about using a fixed orthodontic appliance is that it will be working all the time to help correct your teeth, and fixed orthodontics can often provide the most predictable results in the most conservative way possible. This innovative system uses patient tray kits, so when you come to have your braces fitted, your appointment will be fast and you’ll find the process is quick and comfortable. Another great thing about Six Month Smiles in Bayswater is that it is extremely affordable due to the sheer speed of treatment. So how does this compare to the Inman Aligner?
While Six Month Smiles is a fixed brace, the Inman Aligner in Bayswater is a removable appliance that can deliver results just as quickly. This uses a system of two opposable metal bows that are powered by nickel titanium springs. One metal bow will be fitted across the front of the teeth, while the other will be positioned just behind your teeth. The forces created by each of them oppose each other, and this enables quite a large range of movement even though the forces used are extremely gentle.
The system is designed to squeeze the teeth into the correct position. The Inman Aligner does have limited use as it concentrates on moving the front teeth only, and is something that may be recommended as either a standalone treatment, or possibly prior to using other treatments such as dental veneers or dental bonding. Using the Inman Aligner to help straighten the teeth prior to other treatments will help minimise the amount of tooth preparation required. This treatment can often be completed within just a few months.
Both Six Month Smiles in Bayswater and the Inman Aligner can be regarded as being cosmetic braces systems, so they are unlikely to have much of an effect on your overall oral health. Where they can be extremely useful is in helping to correct minor orthodontic issues in a very short space of time. It’s worth considering either of these treatments even if you subsequently need to have one or two veneers fitted afterwards. There are subtle differences between the two systems that will enable your dentist in Bayswater to choose the best option for you. This is something they can do after fully assessing your bite and identifying your orthodontic problems.
One thing to remember about all orthodontic treatment is that it will be necessary to wear some sort of retainer afterwards. This helps to prevent the teeth from moving back into their original positions. A retainer can be fixed or removable, depending on which you’ll find most convenient to use.
