Teeth Straightening

STRAIGHTEN YOUR TEETH IN THE ISLE OF MAN

Clear Aligner Treatment

Clear aligner treatment turns everything you know about braces on its head; it is an advanced orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth using multiple sets of near-invisible aligners.

 

If the thought of visible wires or food stuck in brackets has been putting you off fixing your dental imperfections, this hassle-free alternative could be just the thing for you.

How does it work?

At your free consultation, we’ll use our digital scanner to create a 3D simulation of what your teeth could look like post-treatment – if you’re happy with this, we will order your aligners and begin treatment. 

We will fit your custom-made trays, and then the rest is up to you! Clear aligner treatment requires much fewer check-in appointments than traditional, fixed braces, although we will need to see you now and again to check that everything is going as planned. Each set of aligners needs to be worn for at least 22 hours per day, and you will change them every 1-2 weeks – as you do so, your teeth will gradually move to the desired position, as outlined in your treatment plan.

Frequently asked questions

  • What is preventative dentistry?
    Preventative dentistry refers to the practices and procedures aimed at preventing dental problems before they occur or worsen. The goal of preventative dentistry is to maintain good oral health, prevent tooth decay and gum disease, and avoid the need for more invasive and costly dental treatments. Examples of preventative dentistry include regular dental checkups and cleanings, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and oral hygiene education. Through these practices, preventative dentistry helps to promote healthy teeth and gums and reduce the risk of dental problems in the future. Preventative dentistry is important for people of all ages, and it is especially crucial for children as they develop their permanent teeth. By establishing good oral hygiene habits early on and receiving regular preventative dental care, children can avoid many common dental problems and maintain good oral health throughout their lives.
  • Why is it important to visit a general dentist regularly?
    Regular visits to a general dentist are important for maintaining good oral health. General dentists can detect early signs of dental problems, such as cavities and gum disease, before they become more serious and require more invasive treatments. They can also provide preventive services such as dental cleanings and fluoride treatments to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
  • How often should I visit a general dentist?
    Most general dentists recommend that you visit them for a dental health review at least annually. However, the frequency of your visits may depend on your individual dental health needs. If you have a history of dental problems, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits.
  • How can I find a good general dentist?
    You can find a good general dentist by asking for recommendations from family and friends, checking online reviews, and researching dentists in your area. It's important to choose a dentist who makes you feel comfortable and who takes the time to explain your dental health needs and treatment options.
