We know that you will have lots of questions if you are considering getting your teeth straightened.
Below are a list of the most common questions that we are asked.
Orthodontics is the art of moving teeth and improving the harmony of the teeth and jaws. Treatment makes the best of the natural teeth and the results are impressive, particularly for adult patients who have spent years hating their teeth and hiding their smiles.
Orthodontic treatment can straighten crowded or crooked teeth and move them into a better position. This not only improves your smile but also the way your teeth bite together. Straighter teeth that no longer overlap are easier to clean because the plaque doesn’t get trapped and can be cleaned away with ease.
It is important that you continue to have your teeth checked by your usual dentist when you are having orthodontic treatment. You also need to take extra care of your teeth and mouth.
Yes, we offer interest free credit over 10 months and low interest options over longer periods. Please ask us for more information at your free initial orthodontic consultation.
Invisalign aligners Derbyshire are best suited to people with moderately crooked teeth. We encourage you to join us for a free initial consultation so that we can take a look at your teeth and assess your suitability. There are lots of other brace options available at Glendair Dental Practice Alfreton if you are not able to have Invisalign.
The Invisalign system is one of the most comfortable of orthodontic procedures because there are no brackets or sharp edges. The teeth are gently moved into position and the aligners are changed every few weeks.
Visits to your dentist will take place every 10-12 weeks, which fits in well with people’s busy schedules and teenagers’ school terms.
Another benefit of Invisalign Teen is that we will provide up to six free replacement aligners if they are lost or broken.
You will need to wear the aligner for 22-23 hours a day, everyday – but don’t worry, they are very comfortable.
We like to wait until your child has lost all of their milk teeth and this usually happens at around 12 years old. We would be happy to provide a free orthodontic assessment for children under 12.
The NHS guidelines specify that braces can only be fitted for health, not cosmetic reasons. Young people with moderate to severe crowding, protruding, irregular or buried teeth may be eligible, as may those with missing teeth where gaps need to be closed. There is very often a waiting list for treatment on the NHS.
Yes. Invisalign Teen braces are crystal clear aligners that can be removed for brushing and the occasional night out.
We offer fixed braces for children and these include either metal or tooth coloured brackets. We can brighten metal brackets with coloured elastics. Ceramic tooth coloured brackets are ideal for older children and teenagers who may feel self-conscious about wearing a brace.
Orthodontic treatment with fixed braces takes between 12 to 18 months on average and up to 24 months with Invisalign.
