Clear removable aligners are a relatively new way of correcting mild-moderate orthodontic problems following a comprehensive assessment and discussion of the all the available options. Aligners are thin clear flexible plastic 'mouthguards' which fit closely over the teeth.
A series of aligners is used to move the teeth incrementally according to a treatment plan developed.
Aligner appliances are ideally suited to adult patients whose life-style or work commitments make it difficult for them to wear more visible conventional fixed appliances.
As with any other form of orthodontics, a proper orthodontic assessment, diagnosis and treatment plan is essential to successful aligner treatment.
An accurate impression of the mouth is used to create the customised aligners.
Each appliance moves the teeth a small distance towards the intended position before moving on to the next in the series until the final result is achieved.
Aligners need to be worn full-time, day and night except for meal times. ￼￼
What is Cfast?
Fast – teeth are normally straightened in around three to six months. Discreet – the wires and brackets are almost invisible. Affordable – the short treatment time dramatically cuts the cost.
Cfast is a simple, gentle, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that corrects alignment issues with the top and bottom front six teeth, and can level and round out the arches, thus satisfying the needs of the vast majority of adult patients who seek orthodontic treatment. Cfast uses clear
orthodontic brackets and tooth-colored nickel-titanium wires. The treatment works much like that using clear aligners, but tooth movement is much more predictable and usually more than twice as quick.
The nickel-titanium wires put gentle pressure on the brackets to level and align the teeth with minimal discomfort to the patient. The gingiva follows this movement to achieve a fully aesthetic outcome.
Cfast is a fast, effective and affordable treatment when adults are seeking to correct their smiles. Because we do not claim to address major orthodontic issues, Cfast can be done very quickly, making it more affordable than all other orthodontic options. Cfast takes less time than conventional
orthodontics because it focuses only on the “social six”, the front teeth that most influence the smile. The process is further enhanced with the use of special nickel-titanium wires, which exert gentle pressure to force movement in the teeth.
With clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, Cfast is barely noticeable – and worn for only a fraction of the time compared to traditional braces.
Inman Aligner: Straight teeth ... fast
A beautiful straight smile can be yours within weeks. The Inman Aligner is a simple removable appliance used to align front teeth quickly and safely.
