A new year is always a time to think about the changes you want to make to your life to improve your overall wellbeing going forwards. We understand that orthodontic treatment can be a big investment in terms of time and money, but patients find it is often one of the most life-changing decisions they ever make. Read on to find out about the treatments we offer and how they can change your year and life…..
What is it? A removable treatment made up of clear plastic aligners that are custom made by us here at Park Lane and replaced bi-weekly by you at home.
What are the principal benefits? Very popular with patients who wish to make minimal disruptions to their day-to-day routines. As they are removable, you can continue to eat the foods you love and not at the detriment of your treatment. Invisalign’s removable trait also makes keeping up good dental hygiene less difficult than with fixed brace models, as there is no brace hardware in the way of your teeth.
Lingual brace (Incognito)
What is it? The most inconspicuous braes available, lingual braces sit on the tongue side of your teeth totally out of the view of others.
What are the principal benefits? No one need even know you are undergoing orthodontic treatment with lingual braces as they sit totally out of view. They are a very comfortable option for patients and can be used to treat complex orthodontic issues.
Clear fixed braces
What is it? Clear fixed braces are based on the design of a traditional metal brace model but offer aesthetic benefits.
What are the principal benefits? The brace hardware is made to blend in with your smile; the brackets are created to be a match for your tooth shade and a more recent development is the introduction of tooth-coloured wires.
What is it? The 2D treatment system is another lingual brace system but with a smaller overall structure than a standard lingual brace.
What are the principal benefits? As they are slimmer and fit closer to the tooth they can be more comfortable than custom made lingual braces. They are a good option for simpler treatments particularly if you are only interested in correcting the front teeth.
