Traditional Braces commonly known as Train Tracks
When most people think of orthodontic treatment in Lincoln, they think of braces. These metal orthodontics appliances are secured to the teeth with special dental adhesives. Brackets, wires, and bands are used to push and pull the teeth into a new and improved position. They also work on the developing jaw, correcting the way that it sits so that your teeth come together perfectly when you close your mouth. Regular adjustments over the course of a year or more are integral to the treatment plan. While successful, many patients with braces become frustrated at the limitations that the treatment places on their quality of life. Certain foods are off-limits, it’s harder to clean their teeth and they have to be extremely careful with their mouth at all times.
As a result, many people prefer – Invisalign® a new alternative to conventional metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of bespoke clear aligners to apply the same gentle force to the teeth and jaws to move them and correct the issues that are being experienced. They sit over the top of the teeth and look virtually invisible. They can also be removed for eating, meaning that they create far fewer limitations when compared to traditional braces. They also require fewer visits to your Invisalign provider since you can move on to the next aligner in the series yourself. All aligners must be worn for a minimum of 22 hours per day to be effective, and only removed for eating and cleaning your teeth.
When you have Invisalign® treatment at Kordel House Dental Practice in Lincoln, Unlike direct-to-home aligners where you don’t get to see the dentist or cannot know the identity of the dentist, our UK registred Invisalign® trained dentist Dr. Manu Cherian will be monitoring your entire treatment.
What issues can Orthodontics treat?
Orthodontics can treat a wide range of issues to do with the position of the teeth and jaw including:
- Crowded teeth
- Twisted teeth
- Overlapping teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between the teeth
- Reducing the appearance of prominent upper teeth (overbite)
- Reducing the appearance of prominent lower teeth (underbite)
By correcting these issues it’s possible to help improve the way that teeth work, spread the bite pressure across the entire range of teeth which can reduce damage on specific areas of your teeth and enhance the way that your smile looks.
Orthodontics for Kids in Lincoln
All children under the age of 18 qualify for free dental treatment on the NHS. However, current backlogs of cases mean that currently there is a waiting list of more than 2 years to get started on NHS orthodontic treatment. We understand that many children and parents may not want to wait that long, particularly as orthodontic treatment is most effective during the teenage years before the jaw stops growing.
