Orthodontic Treatments to Fit Your Lifestyle

You may have at long last started to consider orthodontic treatment to either straighten your own teeth, or those of a family member. This great decision may mean you could be the centre of attention with a new, natural, but straight smile.  At Malmin Orthodontics we have the best range available to suit the needs of you and your family. It’s just a matter of discussing the possibilities that best suit your needs and then get onto the treatment as quickly as possible.

The types of braces we have available include:

  • Damon braces, a successful alternative to the older metal braces.
  • Ceramic braces, which work in the same way as the older fixed metal braces but the brackets are made out of a ceramic material which are tooth-coloured which makes them far more discreet.
  • Lingual braces, which are called the Incognito™ Lingual Bracket System which being a part of the new generation of braces is suitable for people of any age. They are fitted behind the teeth making them invisible to even the most curious onlooker.
  • The Invisalign® system which is made up of clear aligners that can’t be seen, which have successfully helped more than 3 million people to attain the smile they have always dreamed about. There are aligners made especially for teens too.

Damon Braces are one of the fastest acting, most comfortable and most discreet fixed braces available. They provide a smooth transition from crooked to straight teeth. They use a frictionless self-ligating technology, in the absence of metal and elastic bands that often cause irritation when adjusted. The brackets use a sliding mechanism which holds the wires in the place. This offers superior tooth movement without having to bear the excessive pressure caused by metal and elastic bands.

Ceramic braces

Clarity™ Ceramic Braces resemble fixed metal braces, but the brackets are made out of ceramic, which is tooth-coloured. This helps to make them less conspicuous.  The brackets are far stronger and smoother than those used on metal braces. They have been successfully used by at least 5 million recipients to date. Clarity™ Ceramic Braces are so discreet that they suit all age ranges and can change your life forever. They don’t suffer from staining and they look quite natural. Best of all they work as well as the more cumbersome metal braces.

Lingual braces

These are the braces you may have heard about the most, as they are fitted to the rear of the recipient’s teeth so they can’t be seen. The Incognito™ Lingual Brackets are suitable for all age groups and their discreetness means literally no one will ever know you are wearing them.  They can correct severe malocclusion. Apart from being invisible they are custom made comfortable, won’t damage your teeth and are allergy free. For less severe cases that affect your front teeth, only Incognito™ Lite is offered by Malmin Orthodontics which minimizes the treatment time to just a few short months.

Invisalign® clear aligners

These virtually invisible aligners have attracted up to 3 million people to the possibility of gaining nice, straight teeth for the first time in their lives.  Before the aligners are fitted, 3 -D computer imaging technology is used to organize the right treatment plan right through from the teeth’s original position to their desired position.  Each set of aligners moves the teeth bit by bit and is in place for around two weeks when a new set is fitted until the desired result has been achieved. People prefer Invisalign® because it is comfortable, removable, effective and custom designed.

At Malmin Orthodontics your smile is our concern and we match the right braces treatment to both
