Orthodontics

Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening the teeth by wearing braces (removable or fixed). There are a variety of options available at Cavehill Dental care and our Dentists will discuss all of these to help you decide which of these will suit you best.

Conventional Orthodontics

This can be carried out with either a Removable Appliance (a plastic plate that is taken out to be cleaned), a Fixed Appliance (where brackets and bands are temporarily stuck to the teeth and periodically adjusted) or ‘Invisible Braces’ (clear plastic positioners that are worn throughout the day to gently push your teeth into the correct position).

Inman Aligners

The Inman Aligner is a cost-effective, barely visible removable orthodontic appliance that moves teeth in a fraction of the time of other systems. It aligns crowded or protruding front teeth with two opposing spring-loaded aligner bars.

This provides gentle but continuous pressure over a large range of movement. Surprisingly, this gentle pressure is the quickest way to move teeth but it also makes treatment very safe and kind to teeth.

People love the speed of treatment and and also the fact that Inman Aligners can be removed easily if having photographs taken or attending a social event. Inman Aligners are changing the face of dentistry as we know it. The average treatment time is only 8-16 weeks .
