Options Oldham Orthodontics

Nowadays, getting your teeth straightened doesn’t mean you have to wear big, metal braces. Orthodontic treatments have advanced beyond recognition, and there are plenty of modern, invisible tooth straightening methods on the market.

Here, we’ve rounded up our top three invisible tooth straightening solutions that you can invest in during 2018.

Ceramic braces

Much like traditional metal braces, ceramic braces use brackets that are applied to the front of your teeth. However, the brackets are clear or tooth coloured and are often much smaller, making them much less noticeable. These are usually the lowest cost almost invisible type of brace, and are often in situ for 12 to 18 months

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are fantastic at straightening crooked or gapped teeth and are almost invisible to the naked eye. They are made from medical grade plastic and designed so that you change each retainer every two to three weeks. Clear aligners like Invisalign are a popular choice among adults looking for an inconspicuous tooth straightening option. It usually takes around three months to notice a difference in your smile

Lingual braces

Lingual braces offer one of the most discreet ways of straightening your teeth and have all the power of a traditional metal brace. They are made up of small brackets and arch wires that are attached to the back of your teeth, making them virtually invisible to others.

Metal braces

Sometimes, the best tool for the job is the traditional fixed metal brace. Although you might think of Ugly Betty, modern technology has brought them on a long way from what they used to be and they’re often a lot more discreet. Metal braces are often slightly cheaper and are often used when teeth are particularly crooked.
