There are so many reasons adults decide to get their teeth straightened and we know this is a big decision for many. Here at East Midlands Orthodontics, we will help and support you through every step of the process. From your first consultation and throughout your treatment we are here to make the process as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
We offer a wide range of treatment options including Damon Clear and Invisalign and will talk to you about all your options and which type of brace will be best for you. We treat a large number of adult patients and will take the time to find out from you what you are hoping to achieve from orthodontic treatment and whether you have considered other dental treatments such as teeth whitening.
The first step in the process is a relaxed consultation with one of our specialist orthodontists who will take the time to understand what you are hoping to achieve and to explore which brace options will be best for you. They will examine your teeth and your facial symmetry and will devise a treatment plan that achieves the results you are looking for.
Many of our brace options are very decreet so no one will know you are having treatment unless you tell them. Invisalign is almost invisible and uses a series of clear aligners to gently move your teeth into their new position. Damon Clear brackets are also a great option and one favoured by many of our adult patients. Whatever option you decide, you can be assured treatment in a comfortable and relaxed environment where we take care to ensure you understand every step of the process and together, we will create a smile you can be proud of.
Here are just some of the reasons why adult patients choose to undertake their orthodontic treatment with us.
Yes, your braces will move your teeth into the right position but wearing retainers will ensure they stay there! If you have been treated using Invisalign, you will be used to wearing retainers as they are very similar to your aligners. For those patients who have had fixed braces, you will quickly get used to wearing your retainers. You will need to wear them full time for six months then gradually reduce wear until you are just wearing them for a few nights per week. You should continue to wear retainers for as long as you want your teeth to remain straight.
Simply give us a call and arrange a free consultation where you will have the opportunity to ask questions about treatment options. If you are keen to start quickly, we will do everything we can to start you promptly on your journey towards a fantastic new smile.
