Adult Orthodontics

Adult orthodontics

Orthodontics has moved on considerably from the fixed metal braces we and our friends had as children. Today, revolutionary techniques and modern materials allow us to gently straighten and align teeth in shorter periods with almost invisible braces.

 

Dr. Engelbrecht works with two specific systems to get great results:

 

ClearAligner Treatment

 

Dr. Engelbrecht was one of the early adopters of this techniques in the UK and has treated countless patients with clear aligners since 2006. She now uses both ClearCorrect which is produced in the USA and locally manufactured aligners depending on the case requirements.

 

A Clear Aligner is an invisible removable cosmetic appliance designed for minor teeth movement. Clear Aligner technology can straighten teeth that are crowded, rotated and tilted forward or backward. Treatment times can be as short as six to eight weeks.

This type of orthodontic brace is ideal for the following patients:

 

  • Adult patients
  • If you have had orthodontic treatment as a child and your teeth have now relapsed
  • If you have minor problems you’ve always wanted to change
  • Pre-treatment for aesthetic dentistry or dental rehabilitations

 

Paying for orthodontic treatment is also easy with our payment plans which will be custom made to your case.

 

 

Inman Aligner – “The 12 Week Wonder Brace”

 

The Inman Aligner, a cutting edge procedure, can straighten front teeth in a fraction of the time of conventional orthodontics. The initial treatment can be completed in 8-12 weeks. Minor crowding can be corrected in 8 weeks or less.

 

The Inman Aligner uses a unique approach to straightening the visible front teeth. A pair of spring-loaded bars exert gentle straightening pressure to the front and back of teeth, effectively squeezing them into a more natural position.

 

It is not for everyone as some patients find wearing the Inman quite intrusive, but at a fraction of the cost of other orthodontic techniques, it is a great solution for many patients.
