For many people teeth is not something they worry about and see their teeth as a unique feature that they have become accustomed to over the years. If their teeth are crooked they feel it adds character to their appearance, however for others, crooked teeth can have the opposite effect. This can make them feel self-conscious and uncomfortable with their appearance, giving them the desire to alter their teeth and smile.
If you’ve decided that straightening your teeth is the right choice for you, there are several ways in which a dentist or orthodontist can help straighten your teeth.
In recent years we have noticed more and more adults coming into the practice who want to straighten their teeth but do not want to wear traditional braces. We often get asked the question
“ Is it possible to get straight teeth without braces?”….
… and the answer is Yes! Dental technology has come a long way, which means teeth straightening without braces is now possible.
You may ask how is this possible?
Well, it is now possible to straighten some teeth using removable retainers. At Gransha Dental we use a product which is actually popular with many celebrities is called Invisalign. Invisalign offer teeth straightening without braces by using a set of bespoke clear retainers. Practically invisible, these retainers can be removed for eating, drinking, and socialising, making them popular with many celebrities.
Each retainer is custom made and worn for a set period of time, approximately 2-4 weeks before it is swapped for the next one in the series. These retainers are gently moving and straightening your teeth over 12-24 months.
This treatment is popular for its more discreet appearance and timely results in comparison to traditional braces. However, it may not be suitable for everyone. Generally, those who want to correct slightly crooked, protruding teeth or small gaps are ideal for Invisalign treatment.
