If you are looking for straighter teeth as an adult then Short term orthodontics may be the solution for you. Treatment with braces in Edinburgh focuses on the teeth that you see in your smile and does not attempt to reorganise your bite, for this reason, is much more rapid than the more traditional, comprehensive orthodontic treatments that are still considered “best practice” for younger patients.
There are a huge range of systems and brand names available and our team have experience with many of these. They are broken down into 3 categories
Removable Braces – like the Inman Aligner – best for limited tooth movements, rapid treatment but moderate control of the final position of your teeth. Costs are lowest with this system. Find out more and see examples
Clear braces – the best-known brand name is Invisalign, these are removable and take a little longer but have good control over tooth position and are probably the closest thing to “invisible braces” costs tend to be higher with this type of treatment
Six Month Smiles – this is a fixed system and provides maximum control of the tooth positioning. Treatment times vary but are generally a little faster than with clear aligners. Costs are higher than Inman Aligner but Lower than Invisalign. Other systems like quick straight teeth and Cfast work in a similar way. Find out more and see examples
