For years 'teeth straightening' has been seen as a treatment only carried out on teenagers. Now with the latest technology, adults too can benefit from wearing a brace but without all the hang-ups of years gone by.
At Mint Dental Care we're committed to helping all of our patients achieve a smile to be proud of. That's why we offer a Teeth Straightening Consultation - so that we may take the time to discuss your questions and concerns, the range of teeth straightening treatments we provide, as well as the choice of finance options available to you.
Clear Aligners are ideal for minor adjustments to mal-aligned smiles, with treatment usually lasting between 6 to 18 months depending on each unique case.
Treatment with Clear Aligners uses a pair of transparent aligners which are moulded to the exact shape of your teeth using 3D computer imaging. These aligners are so comfortable to wear that you will soon forget that they are there - they are also invisible when worn and so there is none of the embarrassment that comes with wearing large metal braces.
The aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing your teeth, but otherwise are worn continuously. Every fortnight the aligners are replaced by the next pair in the series so that your teeth are slowly moving and straightening without pain or discomfort. The use of aligners exerts a controlled force on the teeth: at different stages in the process, only certain teeth will be allowed to move. Thus the whole process is gradual, controlled and painless.
