What orthodontic options are available to the people of Surrey?

Did you have orthodontics when you were young,, but your teeth have moved again? Did you miss out on orthodontics as a teenager but still want to have straight teeth?

With modern adult orthodontics it is indeed possible to have those straight teeth, as orthodontics are no longer just for kids. In this blog post we discuss the orthodontic options for the local people that live close to our dental practice in Effingham, Surrey.

We offer a range of orthodontic treatments from rapid orthodontics, to invisible and through to conventional fixed train track brace orthodontic therapies. But why so many options?

Your orthodontic options.

We mainly offer invisible, rapid, fixed and conventional removable orthodontics. Invisible orthodontics is excellent if you have a lifestyle, career or social life in which you do not wish for other people to know that you are having orthodontic treatment.

Invisible orthodontics from Mortiboys dental spa in Surrey comes in two forms, Invisalign almost invisible braces (which are clear) and Damon braces which fit on the inside of your teeth.

Both of these options are almost invisible, and it really depends on your individual circumstances as to which one is best for you.

Rapid orthodontics is achieved by using the Inman aligner. This revolutionary new technique uses an inventive double spring system to both pull and push your teeth at the same time in the direction required to make them straight. Typically treatment times are around 8 to 12 weeks.

Fixed orthodontics comes in the standard metal wire and bracket system which is so common, however Damon braces are also fixed orthodontics however these fix onto the inside of your teeth so are also invisible.

Various removable appliances can also be used, however we tend to find that adults prefer either the Damon braces or Invisalign invisible braces in order to have straighter teeth with no one else knowing. The other option is to go for an Inman aligner so that the straightening process, and therefore the time that you need to wear your orthodontic brace, is reduced to an absolute minimum.

Why does Mortiboys dental spa in Surrey like orthodontics so much?

Many cosmetic dentists will use what is known as restorative techniques to change your smile. This can often be the use of composite materials (which we used also) and the use of dental veneers and dental crowns. Whilst we are able to use dental veneers and crowns if the situation fits, we would rather use orthodontic therapy as it has the most minimal approach to achieving a perfect smile.

Once your orthodontics have finished there is no additional material retained within your mouth, we believe that this is the most realistic way to treat a patient by leaving them in a totally natural state with their own teeth.

Mortiboys dental spa in the heart of the Surrey countryside near Effingham is a cosmetic and holistic dental practice offering a free cosmetic consultation to discuss your orthodontic options.
