Adult Orthodontics

Adult orthodontics

Orthodontics have 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 was one of the early adopters of these techniques in the UK and has treated many patients with clear aligners. She is delighted to have teamed up with one of the market leaders that is now available in South Africa.

 

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

 

Types of Removable Appliance

 

Inman Aligner – “The 12 Week Wonder Brace”

 

The Inman Aligner, a new 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.

 

Clear Aligner

 

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.
