Welcome to Teeth Straightening Edinburgh
Many people suffer from crooked or misaligned teeth, this can be something people are born with or perhaps the teeth have moved out of position over time. Whatever the cause of tooth misalignment there are many teeth straightening treatments available that can straighten teeth and achieve great results.
At our Edinburgh based practice we offer patients a wide range of orthodontic treatments to suit their individual needs and orthodontic issues. Orthodontics has come along way in the past few years, and all our braces treatments use the very latest technology and techniques.
We offer patients a range of clear aligner braces systems, which are incredibly discreet and removable. These are often used for minor teeth alignment problems and are a fantastic alternative to the less discreet fixed metal braces. Many people do not like the thought of fixed metal in their mouths, as this can affect facial aesthetics and can make some people feel self-conscious. We have found that our clear braces are incredibly popular teeth straightening treatments for both adults and teenagers. They can be removed which is beneficial because patients can eat and drink as normal, and can clean their teeth and maintain their oral hygiene.
We also offer some innovative fixed braces treatments, which can work for moderate to more serious tooth misalignments. We have lingual braces, which are worn on the back of the teeth so that they are inconspicuous, but can work quickly and effectively whilst maintaining a discreet look. They use smaller brackets and wiring and patients get used to these very quickly
Sometimes only the front teeth need to be aligned and for this issue we have braces treatments including 6 Month Smiles braces and the Inman aligner. 6 Month Smiles works by using tooth coloured wiring and brackets, which aim to move only the front teeth into position. They look very discreet and can work very quickly to move the front teeth, often in as little as six months. These are very popular with patients who what to achieve straighter teeth in a short period of time. They are useful for an upcoming important event such as a wedding or new job.
The Inman aligner is a removable device, which works on minor tooth misalignment often caused by prior braces treatment relapses. They work using a push and pull system with a spring coil on the back of the teeth and a metal wire across the front of the teeth, which gently move teeth into the correct location.
Whatever your orthodontic issue, at our Edinburgh dental practice we have a wide range of orthodontic treatments to suit the individual needs of all our patients.
