Braces for Adults
We are delighted to be able to offer braces for adults in house.
We offer 2 systems both are provided by Dr Lukman Salaudeen. These systems are designed for cosmetic improvements in a fairly short space of time. If more major tooth movement is needed, we can refer you to our orthodontic colleagues.
This uses clear brackets and tooth coloured wires so is discreet to wear. Treatment focuses on the teeth that show when you smile hence the treatment time is less than for traditional fixed braces. Average treatment time is six months.
Once your teeth have been moved the braces are removed. A fixed retainer is then attached to the back of your teeth. We also provide you with a back up removable retainer. This is to hold your teeth in their new position.
See the website for more information – https://www.6monthsmiles.com/
This system uses clear aligners which look a bit like a clear gum shield. A series of them is custom made for you and they move your teeth little by little with each one.
You wear the aligners as much as you can removing them for eating and for any contact sports.
The website for this system is https://www.invisalign.co.uk/en/Pages/Home.aspx
If you are interested in having your teeth straightened give us a call and we can arrange an initial chat with Lukman, which is free of charge. If will be able to advise you what the best treatment for you would be.
