Orthodontics (teeth straightening)

Our DNA code

Few people have a DNA that gifts them an impeccable smile and perfectly aligned teeth. As clinicians, however, we sometimes need to challenge the genetic code that has compromised our smiles. Innovative dentistry means there is no need to live with crooked and irregular teeth, or tolerate a bite that doesn’t align properly.

The discipline for rearranging teeth is known as orthodontic treatment. It involves the use of dental braces, but the kind of appliances we use at North Street Dental and Implant Clinic, Dudley, West Midlands do not cosmetically compromise patients during therapy.

There are no unsightly wires or clamps and most people would not even realise our braces are being worn.


Orthodontics – the ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ of invisible braces

Thanks to advances in technology and dental materials, conspicuous, chunky braces are no longer an inevitable step in straightening misaligned teeth.

At our Dudley clinic we use  Invisalign and Smile TRU transparent braces for our orthodontic treatment, so the only thing that shows is the natural colour of teeth.

They are popular with teens and a growing number of image-conscious young adults.

They can help correct crowding, spacing, crossbites, overbites and underbites.

Invisalign therapy

Invisalign treatment is designed to slot seamlessly into daily routines without any fuss or embarrassment.

There are no metal wires or brackets, so there’s no need to worry about mouth irritations as the aligners are comfortable to wear and can easily be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.

Transparent aligners
The transparent aligners are difficult to detect when worn and they will carefully straighten teeth without patients feeling self-conscious.

Should you have an important meeting or event coming up that’s causing concern, you can always remove the aligners for that short space of time, but they must be returned as soon as possible.

The orthodontic treatment model consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are changed every two weeks or so for a new prescription. Each aligner is individually manufactured for the patient. Over a number of weeks as the aligners are changed teeth begin to move into their correct position.

3-D treatment plan
A virtual 3-D treatment plan (ClinCheck© treatment plan), which will configure the aligners required, shows the series of movements teeth will go through, allowing a clear insight into what the finished look will be like.

If you’re ready for a smile transformation that does not interfere with your day-to-day life, Invisalign may be right for you. Looking for orthodontics in Dudley then call us, we’d be happy to talk to you about your options for orthodontics treatment.

Smile TRU – a discreet corrective system

Smile TRU offers a different type of an approach to straightening teeth without the use of metal brackets.  The corrective system is custom made for each patient and consists of aligner trays that fit over teeth.

The trays are comfortable, smooth to the touch and almost completely invisible.

How our clear braces work
A sequence of aligner trays is made in our laboratory – each one designed to gradually move teeth into the correct position over a period of time.

Our dentists will be able to explain in detail how the orthodontic treatment plan will progress and the length of time you would be expected to wear the trays.

On average – though each case is different – we would expect a new aligner tray with fresh correction dynamics to be prescribed every two weeks.

Advantages over traditional braces
There are many different benefits the Smile TRU orthodontics system has over traditional therapies.

Patients should not experience the pain and discomfort often associated with metal brace systems.

Another bonus is that diet will not be restricted. There will not be any need for food sacrifices. At mealtimes the patient can take out the trays and once food is eaten, teeth can be cleaned normally and the trays replaced to continue their corrective work.
