Short Term Orthodontic Solutions are discreet and cosmetic brace systems, ideal for patients who are seeking to have their teeth straightened but are deterred by the idea of wearing a conventional metal brace or aligners.
The brace consists of clear brackets and tooth coloured wires. It is a fairly discreet type of brace which is adjusted every 4 weeks until the end of your treatment period. Over the period of few months, the custom designed brace gently pushes the teeth into the correct position, correcting spaced, crowded and overlapping teeth. Final results can be achieved in as little time as 6 months – just in time for your next check-up or a big social event like your wedding!
If you want to improve the appearance of teeth that show when you smile without significantly impacting your bite alignment, then Short Term Orthodontics may be a good choice for you.
To find out more, book in your one-to-one consultation with Adam or Mili who will examine your smile and discuss your treatment options with you.
The Short Term Orthodontics technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile. Most of the treatments will be completed within a 4 to 9 month period, on average the treatments take 6 months.
No! The system uses tooth-coloured braces that are barely visible. The wires are tooth-coloured as well. These are nothing like metal braces! Book your appointment and at your consultation we’ll show you what they’re like.
The braces use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Short Term Orthodontics utilises standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with Short Term braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Short Term orthodontics.
Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
