Here in Stockport, our orthodontists offer a range of treatments to help straighten your smile and renew your confidence. Whether it’s a quick fix for teeth to enable you to smile proudly in your wedding photos, or a longer treatment to correct a bite or speech problem, we can help.
In this post, we’ll give a short summary of both our clear braces and our metal braces, so you know what’s on offer here in Stockport, and can come to an appointment with our orthodontists feeling a little more prepared.
Six Month Smiles
As the name suggests, this is a super-fast treatment that can take mere months to generate results. The treatment focuses on the six upper central teeth – the ‘social six’ – which show when you smile. A clear option is available, with clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, though the braces are fixed and not removable. Even with a fast-acting treatment, our orthodontists share that the forces used to realign the teeth are as gentle as other methods.
These fixed, metal braces in Manchester are what everyone thinks of when ‘orthodontics’ springs to mind, and sadly aren’t a clear brace option. Though some think NHS treatment may take longer than private care, we typically see patients within 4 weeks of a referral. And, those under 18 may be able eligible for free treatment, too. Get in touch with us if you’d like to know more about these metal braces in Stockport.
One of our most popular options for teeth-straightening is Invisalign. These are clear, removable braces called ‘aligners’. They’re extremely comfortable, discreet, and easy to clean and care for. Your treatment involves 3D imagery to show your smile during treatment as well as your results – all you need to do is keep changing your aligners to the next set, as the treatment moves teeth incrementally.
Again a fixed brace, the Damon system uses wires and sliding brackets, which mean you won’t need to have metal ties or elastics in your mouth – giving a more comfortable and discreet treatment, with fewer trips to our orthodontists during your care. Like Invisalign, it’s possible to generate a 3D picture of your teeth now and at the end of treatment, so you’ll be able to see your results ahead of time.
You might now be wondering ‘’what’s best for my smile?’’. Well, our orthodontists here in Stockport can help. Get in touch with our team, and we’ll talk you through each option to find the one that best suits your budget, lifestyle and desired results.
