Woman with straight teeth smiling

Do you think you’ve missed the boat when it comes to straightening your smile? Many adults believe braces are just for teenagers. But a new generation of invisible and super fast retainers is helping people get perfect teeth in their 20s, 30s and beyond. See braces before and after pictures.

Orthodontics is about making the best of your smile. When your teeth align correctly, your smile looks great. But getting straight teeth is about more than appearances. When teeth bite together properly there are other benefits too:

  • Eating is more comfortable
  • Cleaning teeth and gums is easier
  • Teeth are less likely to chip and break

Removable braces

Many people shy away wearing braces as an adult because they imagine fixed “train track” braces. Now, with Invisalign and Inman Aligner removable braces, you can straighten your teeth discreetly. And, if you have an important occasion coming up (like a wedding, meeting or a hot date) you can take them out.

Types of braces

Invisalign

Virtually invisible, removable braces may sound like a dream. But Invisalign retainers are here – and available at Wickersley Dental Practice. The Invisalign system is a series of clear braces that gently straighten teeth. Average treatment time is 13 months. But could be more or less depending on your teeth. See the Invisalign process in this video:

Inman Aligner

If you want fast results, Inman Aligner straightens teeth in 6 to 16 weeks. These retainers use slim nickel titanium wires attached to aligner “bows”. These guide your teeth into their new position. These retainers aren’t invisible. But they are much less noticeable than traditional braces. And you can take them out when you need to.

This video shows how Inman Aligner retainers move teeth into their correct position:
