One of the leading trends in cosmetic dentistry in recent years has been adult orthodontics. Patients keen to emulate their favourite stars are reportedly opting for minimally invasive treatments that will give them the smile they desire.
Launched in May 2011, the Oralign orthodontic appliance promises a method of interdental stripping and a small, discreet removable appliance to resolve the problem of overcrowding in one or both arches, without affecting the rest of the mouth.
The companies technicians use x-rays, photos and full mouth impressions taking during consultation to provide you with costing, treatment plan and a projected outcome. You can then offer your patients the appliance, which, according to the company, can straighten teeth in less than 14 weeks when worn for just 14 hours a day, including overnight. The retainer that accompanies the appliance is then fixed in position to prevent relapse.Â We offer clear braces at Hereford Dental Clinic call 01432 272238 for information.
