Oftentimes when patients are unhappy with their smile, it’s generally a few crooked or misplaced teeth that they are unhappy with the most. Lengthy orthodontic treatments aren’t for everyone, especially when you could move your front two (or four) teeth in a few months with the right treatment. A common complaint we hear from patients is that they don’t like the gap between their front teeth and it makes them self-conscious when they smile.
At Kettering Dental & Implant Clinic, we have a variety of options available for patients wanting to make minor corrections to their smile – particularly their front teeth.
Inman Aligners are a powerful, removable brace that pair a clear aligner with nickel titanium springs to quickly and effectively move teeth into the desired position. Expected treatment time is between just 12-16 weeks if worn correctly.
Six Month Braces
Six Month Braces are effective for patients who want to correct their jaw and front teeth at the same time. Less obvious on the teeth than Inman Aligners, Six Month Braces consist of tooth-coloured wires and brackets that discreetly realign your teeth. The most light-weight of the fixed braces we offer, this unobtrusive treatment straightens top and both teeth at the same time in around 6 months.
If you want to discretely correct your smile without visible wires and brackets, a clear aligner such as Invisalign is a popular choice. No fixed brace or brackets, Invisalign is a clear aligner that is custom made to fit over your teeth. Every time you get a new aligner (every 2-3 weeks), they are slightly different from the last, applying slight pressure to your teeth to encourage movement into the desired position.
