Advancements in orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry have led to development of modern braces systems that have vastly improved on traditional metal. We have compared modern braces systems and offer our patients choices in customised Invisalign, Inman Aligner and STb Social 6 lingual braces systems. Each of these systems are unique in the treatment benefits they provide for teeth straightening and smile transformation.
The key advancements in modern braces systems include:
Advanced technologies for effective teeth straightening
Invisalign clear aligners are replaced every two weeks for staged re-positioning of teeth with ClinCheck. Dental overcrowding, irregular bite and dental spacing are treated with Invisalign. Inman Aligner comprises a metal bar and coil spring located behind the teeth, creating opposing orthodontic force for mild teeth straightening including relapse. STb Social 6 uses self-ligating lingual technology for improved movement and front teeth correction.
Invisible fitting for discreet orthodontic treatment
Invisalign systems are made of smooth, clear plastic aligners that fit over the mouth similar to a mouth shield. The coil in the Inman Aligner system is located behind the teeth while a single bar rests above the front teeth. The STb Social 6 braces are positioned behind the front teeth and are totally out of sight.
Removable options for better hygiene and convenience
Invisalign aligners and Inman Aligners are removable for adjustment, cleaning, meals and activities. STb Social 6 brackets are fixed behind teeth and removable by a dentist. The self-ligating STb systems make oral hygiene easier.
Faster treatment times and smile transformation results
Invisalign aligners, including i7, are worn for about 21 to 23 hours a day, replaced every two weeks with results evident within 12 to 18 months. The Inman Aligner system straightens teeth within 6 to 16 weeks of commencing treatment, similar to the STb Social 6 Lingual system where results are evident within 16 weeks.
