Invisalign and Braces

Having straight teeth doesn’t just mean a cosmetically perfect smile. It also means a healthier one. When your teeth are aligned, either naturally or with dental intervention, it’s easier to take care of them and keep your pearly whites in great health.

The dentists operating from Primary Dental centres offer a range of affordable, recognised teeth straightening solutions from traditional braces to clear aligners. What’s more, children, and adults, enjoy excellent results. 

 

What is ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect transparent aligners straighten teeth without metal braces. They’re removable which means they can be taken out for meals and flossing. Also, food won’t get trapped in any wires or brackets. Manufactured in America, ClearCorrect aligners are customised to apply pressure to the teeth you want to move. Your dentist will check your aligners regularly and give you a new set with each stage. For the best results, you’ll need to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day, progressing through each stage until the treatment is complete.    

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a ground-breaking technology that helps straighten your teeth with a series of almost-invisible aligners. The aligners are worn over each tooth and are made of smooth, comfortable medical-grade plastic. Invisalign can also help to correct overcrowded or spaced out teeth which in turn can decrease your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Invisalign may be an effective treatment for a number of common issues including:

    • Overcrowded teeth
    • Widely spaced teeth
    • Crossbite
    • Overbite
    • Underbite

If you’ve always wanted a straighter smile, the Invisalign-trained dentists practicing at Primary Dental centres can assess whether Invisalign is right for you.

Braces

In some cases, braces, sometimes called banding, may be the best option to improve the way the teeth bite together and their alignment. Braces are usually less expensive and can fix a wide range of problems compared to clear aligners.
