Local Surrey Braces for Teens
As a teenager, things can change and happen so fast. Orthodontic treatment may just feel like another piece on an already full plate, but don’t worry, we’re here to make it as easy as possible for you. We want you to feel confident not only in your social life, but with your treatment as well. That’s why we offer a wide range of braces for you to choose from, including traditional braces, lingual (Incognito) braces, and clear braces.
You may be wondering how long your treatment is going to take, and that depends on your case, as every patient is different. The average treatment time ranges from 12-24 months, and after the consultation, your orthodontic specialist will create a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
If you’ve gone for the Two-Phase treatment option, the first phase should already be done by this time. The great thing about that is, you’ve already got an edge on your treatment time! Phase II is where traditional orthodontic treatment normally begins, but because you already went through the first phase, your time in Phase II is typically shorter, which means you can expect a reduced time spent wearing braces.
Guildford Town Centre Orthodontist offers In-Ovation braces, which use self-ligating brackets, meaning that there are no elastics or ties to bind the wire to the bracket- the wire clips directly to the bracket. This reduces friction while at the same time being more comfortable when compared to traditional braces.
But the most important thing about In-Ovation braces as the treatment is often faster than traditional methods, while also being more comfortable. This innovation is something we can all clap for!
Lingual (Incognito) Braces
With Incognito hidden braces, the only one who can tell you have braces is you, because they are completely invisible. Instead of putting the brackets on the front of the teeth as with traditional braces, the brackets are fixed to the back of them. So imagine all the benefits of traditional braces, except now they are applied behind the teeth, and cannot be seen. These braces are also known by other names such as lingual or nano braces, but they all do the same thing, which is giving you a great smile.
Clear braces are for the more cosmetically minded, and work in much the same way as traditional braces. The colour of the braces will match your teeth, making the braces much more inconspicuous. But because these kinds of braces aren’t as strong as the traditional metal braces, treatment time may take longer.
