Short-term orthodontic braces in London

Short-term orthodontic braces are the method for transforming your smile within the time span of six to eight months. These braces can deal with common dental problems in half of the time of comprehensive orthodontic treatments by focusing on your front teeth only.

Usually these braces are not invisible; it is also very discreet and clear as brackets are connected by means of a tooth-coloured wire. This ‘memory shape’ wire shifts the teeth gently into their new position thus, giving you a straighter and more confident smile.

What is the Short-term orthodontic braces treatment procedure?

This treatment can be done with the help of these steps:

  • X-rays and photographs are taken to identify your oral conditions.
  • Your teeth impressions will be taken and then sent to the laboratory for the preparation of your customised braces.
  • Custom-made braces are fixed on the teeth with the support of an arch wire.
  • A routine check-up is needed every four weeks to check the position of the wires.

Advantages of Short-term orthodontic braces:

  • A quick method for teeth straightening:

    The Short-term orthodontic braces provides perfectly aligned teeth within a short amount of time when compared to the traditional metal braces. The method requires nearly 6 to 8 months for straightening your crooked teeth thus, giving you an attractive smile.

  • Transparent orthodontics:

    Short-term orthodontic braces mostly use clear brackets to straighten uneven and crooked teeth. These braces are transparent and almost invisible to people until they see you from closely. These ensure freedom from metal wires that might cause embarrassment in social gatherings or public places.

  • Comfortable treatment:

    The procedure shifts your crooked teeth to align them properly. It uses light force to make it more comfortable and less painful than other orthodontic treatments. Due to the use of light force over the teeth, there is less chance of damage to the gum tissues and roots.

This will actually depend on several factors such as present alignment of your teeth and your personal desired objectives. However, it is 6 months, on an average.
