A beautiful smile can boost self esteem and improve your confidence. Here at the Briars, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional Specialist Orthodontic treatment offering a wide range of orthodontic solutions that will comfortably and subtly correct any crooked teeth for both adult and children.
Well-aligned teeth improve chewing, biting and speech, not to mention the overall appearance of your smile.
Different Types of Braces:
All our braces are designed to be as discreet as possible. At the Briars Dental Centre we use the following corrective systems
- Fixed Braces – metal or ceramic
- Removable Braces
- Functional Braces
- Invisible Braces – Invisalign
Fixed braces utilise metal wiring and brackets to straighten teeth. Clear brackets are metal free which improves the appearance during the orthodontic process. The braces are practically invisible, allowing the wearer to go about their day to day life with little to no disruption. After visiting one of our Specialist orthodontist, we will take impressions of your jawline and construct the personalised braces.
Removable braces are those braces that can be removed from the mouth for cleaning. They have limited use, quite often used in conjunction with other braces.
Functional braces are special removable braces, typically they are used in young children, with the aim to harness the child’s growth to improve how the upper and lower teeth meet.
Invisible Braces – Invisalign
The Invisalign system utilises a series of clear, removable braces that are both comfortable, effective and discreet. Invisalign braces are replaced every two weeks to ensure that your treatment continues to develop until your desired result is achieved. The removable nature of the invisalign system ensures easier eating and cleaning.
No more Impressions!
In keeping with our promise to provide our patients with the newest, most innovative dental technology, we are proud to introduce our new iTero scanner. Our scanner enables us to digitally create a model of your mouth, capturing 6000 frames per second to give us a high quality image. This image can be used to plan treatment, to monitor the shape and size of your teeth, or even to simulate an orthodontic result post-Invisalign treatment.
