The Dental Surgery Burnham – Braces, how do they straighten my teeth?

Braces use a clever technique which uses the teeth’s own pressure to realign other teeth into a straighter position and fixing crooked or misaligned teeth. This is usually done with metal braces in childhood or as a teenager, however many adults require orthodontic treatment also.

What happens next?

After you have made the decision to get braces you will be given information about the range of braces that we offer at the practice. Two of our most popular braces treatments are Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clear aligner system that uses clear coloured tray-like aligners that are tailor-made from a cast of your teeth. They use pressure in the same way as traditional braces but are instead made from a clear coloured plastic, and as such, are more discreet than traditional braces. The aligners can be taken out and are swapped out at regular intervals during your treatment.

What is Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles, as the name suggests, is a quick way to straighten teeth. These titanium-nickel aligners are also discreet and very popular with patients looking for braces in Burnham.
