Dental braces aren’t just for children

Do you wish you’d had teeth straightening treatment when you were a child? It’s not too late! At Eastside Dental Swansea, we provide adult braces. Find out more about your teeth straightening options.

Invisalign

Invisalign straightens your teeth using a set of almost invisible, removable appliances that are made specifically to fit your teeth. The appliances are replaced every two weeks, slowly moving your teeth into alignment resulting in a straighter smile. We can treat mild to complex teeth straightening issues.

The appliances are comfortable, clear and removable. As the aligners are fitted to your exact gum line, they are less painful than traditional braces. It is recommended that you wear your appliances for 22 hours a day but, as they are removable, they can be taken out when you eat or whilst playing sport if you feel more comfortable to do so.  It also won’t take too long to notice a difference in your teeth.

How does it work?

If you are eligible for treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth and provide you with your custom-made aligners. You’ll then just need to visit us every 6-8 weeks, so we can check on your progress.  The average treatment duration is 6 to 12 months, but you’ll start to notice changes after just weeks.

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is the perfect solution for crowding or protrusion of the front teeth. Your front teeth will be gently guided to an ideal position in a matter of weeks.

The Inman Aligner removal appliance has Nickel Titanium coil springs that power two aligner bows that gently oppose each other, guiding the teeth into their new position. These gentle forces are active over a very large range of movement, which is why the treatment is effective so quickly. Most treatment is complete in 6-18 weeks.

How does it work?

If you are eligible for treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth to product your custom-made Inman Aligner appliance. It is recommended that you wear your appliance for 16 to 20 hours per day. You’ll need to visit us every 2-3 weeks, so we can check on your progress.

 

Prices for Invisalign start from £1,700. Prices for the Inman Aligner start from £1,500.
