Removeable Appliances

Easy to use teeth straightening

Having braces treatment is becoming more and more important for many young adults, and perhaps you are one of them. You have wonky teeth but they weren’t so out of place that NHS treatment was available to you. Now, you are in a world where almost everyone you meet has a perfect smile and you are becoming ever more self-conscious about your twists and leans.

What’s putting you off getting your teeth straightened? Is it the idea of having braces cemented onto your teeth for months on end, making you look strange and making mealtimes and cleaning a hassle? If so, then come into us at Ace Dental and ask about removable appliances in Camden.

Removable Appliances in CamdenThere are ways to straighten teeth that allow you to still be able to eat whatever you like and keep your toothbrushing routine. Let’s take a look at them here:

The Inman Aligner

This is a device that is designed for straightening your front teeth only. It has two spring-loaded aligner bows that go in front of and behind your teeth and use opposing forces to bring your teeth into alignment. Treatment takes only 6-18 weeks and you take your aligner out for eating and cleaning. The Inman Aligner can also be used as a retainer, which makes for a very cost-effective treatment.

Invisalign

Also known as aligners, these aren’t braces or spring-loaded bows, but a series of see-through plastic moulds that are very thin and fit perfectly over the teeth. Each one in the series has a slightly different set of pressure points inside it that use gentle pressure to move the teeth a tiny distance. You wear one after the other, each for about 7-10 days, until he pressure wears off, and then move onto the next one. You take the aligners out for eating and cleaning.

Quick Straight Teeth

QST has two kinds of removable appliances, one that is similar to the way Invisalign operates and the other to the way the Inman Aligner works.

Discipline

All these removable appliances work very well as long as you maintain the discipline to wear them for the specified time each day.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a removeable dental appliance and is the invisible way to straighten teeth without fixed braces. It uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth, without the need for metal or wires.

How does it work?

Invisalign uses 3D imaging technology to depict the complete treatment plan from the initial position to the final desired position. From this, a series of custom-made, clear aligners are produced just for you.

Each aligner will move teeth incrementally and is worn for around two weeks, then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.

Removeable Appliances in CamdenThe benefits

A huge benefit that our customers here at Ace Dental love is that Invisalign is fully removable. Unlike fixed braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss as normal to ensure you maintain good oral hygiene.

Invisalign is also one of the most comfortable removeable appliances available. There are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation and no metal or wires means you spend less time in our dental practice getting adjustments.

Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you even start treatment. This enables you so to see how your straight teeth will look when treatment is complete.

Invisalign history

In 1945, Dr. H.D. Kesling envisioned that modern technology would enable the use of a series of tooth positioners to produce the kinds of movement required for comprehensive dental treatment, usually only found with fixed appliances.

Technology has finally made this vision a reality with Invisalign removeable appliances in Camden. Using advanced computer technology Invisalign uses a series of customised clear aligners. The patient sequentially wears each aligner to produce extensive tooth movements in both upper and lower arches both quickly and easily.

Align Technology Inc is the company that manufactures Invisalign. It was founded in 1997. Since then, they have manufactured over 10,000,000 removable appliances and over four million patients have been treated.
