Lingual Braces: Proof that Fixed Braces Aren’t Always Obvious

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

shutterstock_216891052What kinds of images pop into your head when somebody mentions braces? Do you see cumbersome, ugly sets of metal train-tracks? If so, you’ll be glad to know that times have changed, and there are some much more discreet options on offer. If you’re eager to straighten your teeth and you don’t want to show off a brace when you smile, one option you could consider is lingual braces. These are fixed braces, but they’re completely different to the braces you’re probably familiar with. These braces sit behind your teeth, so you can smile with bags of confidence.

About Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are fixed braces, but they’re not the same as your average fixed braces. These braces are attached to the back of the teeth. This means that they cannot be seen when you smile. If you’re worried about what people will think about you having braces, or you’re conscious about your appearance, this could be the solution for you. With this option, you really can have treatment in secret.

At City Dental Leeds, we know that many of our patients dream of an invisible solution for crooked and crowded teeth, and we’re delighted to offer the incredible STb Social 6 system.

What’s so Fantastic about STb Social 6?

STb Social 6 is a lingual brace system, which targets issues that affect the social 6, the six teeth at the front of the mouth on both the top and bottom arches. The braces are custom-made, and each bracket is fixed individually. The braces use forces to gently guide the teeth into position, correcting problems like minor misalignment and small gaps between the teeth.

The beauty of STb Social 6 braces is that they give you the results you crave without you have to worry about what anyone else thinks or what you see when you look in the mirror. These braces are also incredibly quick, producing beautiful results in just 6-16 weeks.

Incredible Discreet Dentistry With The Inman Aligner

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

3943593_blogDiscretion is a buzz word when it comes to orthodontics because many people want to have treatment without the worry of it impacting on their looks. Braces are not the most attractive accessory, but we are able to offer discreet treatment systems to straighten your teeth with minimal impact on the look of the smile. One of our most popular and exciting treatments is the Inman Aligner.

The Inman Aligner represents a discreet, rapid alternative to traditional fixed braces for patients who have minor issues with the front teeth. This removable appliance is capable of straightening the teeth in a matter of weeks and the best thing is that the brace is barely visible to other people.

What exactly is the Inman Aligner?

The Inman Aligner is a removable aligner, which consists of a coiled spring and a metal bar. The metal bar is very fine and it runs along the front teeth, while the spring is located behind the teeth. The aligner simply sits on top of the teeth and the forces generated by the two key parts move the teeth. These gentle forces push and pull, squeezing the teeth and causing them to move in the desired direction.

The Inman Aligner is not invisible like Invisalign or Clearstep aligners; however, all that can be seen is the fine metal bar and treatment is so quick that it will be over before you know it.

The average treatment time for the Inman Aligner is just 16 weeks.

Who is an ideal candidate for the Inman Aligner?

This treatment is ideally suited to patients who need minor correction and it is a great choice for those with slightly crooked front teeth, mild crowding or a small diastema (gap between the front teeth). We also recommend the Inman Aligner as a treatment for relapse, which occurs when the teeth start to move after treatment.
