At Rushey Green Dental practice we can refer patients to an Orthodontist at one of our sister dental practices. Orthodontists specialise in a variety of braces for adults and children. From traditional metal braces, Invisalign, Damon braces, ceramic and Lingual braces (braces on the back of the teeth).
We understand that not everyone is suitable for Invisalign and will need fixed braces, especially if your case is complicated. We are happy to offer you a consultation with our Orthodontist to discuss your options and the process.
After your consultation our reception team will then discuss the payment options available to you, including further information on our 0% monthly instalment option.
If you’re not keen on the fixed, metal, traditional brace then Ceramic braces are a more discreet way of straightening your teeth using tooth coloured brackets and wires. Using clear brackets made of Porcelain, these are bonded on to your teeth. A thin wire is then used with the brackets and these together, help to move your teeth.
Lingual (hidden) braces are like fixed, traditional braces but are placed behind the back of your teeth as opposed to the front surfaces. During your consultation, the Orthodontist will discuss whether you are suitable for Lingual braces and then will discuss the process with you. These braces are the most discreet because they are placed on the inside of your teeth, so they are almost obscured from view. Lingual braces are a great option if you’re not keen on the appearance of braces in your mouth.
Although these braces may look like traditional fixed braces, Damon braces are a fantastic way to straighten your teeth and is usually quicker! Using the latest technology, Damon brackets reduce friction and allow the wire to move more freely, meaning some patients can see results after only 6 months. You can also get clear Damon braces, if you’d like to have a more discreet option. This also means there is no need for the use of rubber bands unlike the traditional brace.
Your Orthodontist will be able to discuss how this brace works and its benefits, during your orthodontic consultation.
