At Affinity Dental Care we offer three different types of tooth straightening. You will need a consultation for the dentist to assess you and advise which type of tooth straightening would be best for you. We’ve detailed below all the information you need to know about the different types of tooth straightening we offer.
The Inman Aligner is a perfect solution for crowding or protrusion of the upper and lower front teeth. It is a safe and efficient way to straighten your teeth and is great value. With the Inman aligner, your front teeth can be gently guided to the desired position in as little as 6 weeks. Most cases complete in around 6-18 weeks. Another added benefit of the Inman aligner is that it is removable and can be taken out to fit around your lifestyle.
SureSmile is a full-service product which in association with a digital intraoral scan, 3D model and patient photos and allows for a treatment plan tailored precisely to the patients’ anatomical data to match their natural anatomy. SureSmile is a clear removable appliance designed to straighten your teeth. This aligner can be used to straighten teeth that are crowded, rotated, tilted forwards or backwards using exact digital impression taken by the dentist. The dentist will be able to see the digital results before starting using clear aligners systems and will then be asked to approve the result. Once the result has been approved by the dentist, the custom-made aligners are fabricated using the latest in 3D printing technology. When eating or cleaning your teeth or aligned, you can simply take them out – quick and easy, whenever you like.
Powerprox 6 months braces uses a time-tested technique combined with the latest in orthodontic material and technologies to move your teeth quickly and safely. An often asked question is (do I have to wear big metal brace?) The answer is no, we use clear, nearly invisible braces on your teeth. After the powerprox braces have been removed following completion, it is necessary for you to wear a retainer for maintain your teeth’s position. We offer two types of retainers, one of which is removable and the other is a fixed retainer which consists of a metal wire fixed to the back of your teeth.
