An effective long-term solution to straightening your teeth and correcting your bite is orthodontics. Orthodontics is a subspecialty area in dentistry that focuses on aligning and straightening teeth using wires and brackets, applying gentle pressure to the teeth to move them into a particular position. The discipline has advanced over decades and today treatment is a lot faster and more comfortable than it was in the past. Here is an overview of orthodontics:
Smilelign integrates the latest software and 3D CADCAM technology to enable us to produce effective tooth alignment treatment plans. The Smilelign laboratory then uses the highest quality materials, providing the clearest, most effective orthodontic aligners in order to deliver outstanding and predictable results.
Smilelign treatment starts with a routine examination of your teeth, we will also take moulds. These moulds are scanned in the Smilelign laboratory and 3D images are produced. The 3D image of your teeth is assessed and a treatment plan made specifically for you. We will discuss each stage of treatment with Smilelign technicians before a series of aligners are tailor made just for you. Each aligner is minutely different, moving your teeth in gradual stages to their new position. Treatment can be really quick, dependent on your case, 6-12 months is a realistic time.
