What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the area of dentistry that treats tooth misalignment, crooked teeth, and irregular bites. Traditional tooth braces are unsightly, cumbersome and fixed in place — often for years. The visibility of traditional braces and the inability to remove them left many patients saying, “No thanks,” and opting out of orthodontic treatment whether or not they needed it.

Thanks to modern technology, dentists can straighten your teeth with removable, virtually invisible braces. The best part is treatment takes as little as a few weeks. You may be pleasantly surprised at how easy it can be to finally have straight teeth using clear plastic appliances or aligner trays made just for you.

Orthodontic Treatment Benefits

Now that orthodontic treatments are much more discreet, we treat more adult patients than ever before. Here are some of the advantages of orthodontic treatment:

Virtually Undetectable Orthodontic Treatment at Riveredge Cosmetic Dentistry

We want our patients to enjoy their enhanced smiles as soon as possible, so we select high-end treatments that streamline the process from start to finish. Orthodontic patients at our Sunderland dental practice often benefit from one of two treatments:
Orthodontic Treatment at Riveredge
  1. A series of clear plastic Invisalign trays moulded from your own teeth. The series of orthodontic appliances fit discreetly over all of your teeth and reposition their positioning over time.
  2. The Inman Aligner is custom-built from an impression of your teeth. It uses titanium technology to quickly straighten your front teeth by using the opposing force of two barely noticeable aligner bows (one in front and one behind your teeth).
Both treatments suit patients with small irregularities or who had previous orthodontic work completed but lapsed in the ongoing aftercare. We will let you know during your consultation if more extensive orthodontic care is required. Contact us to book your consultation.

FAQs About Orthodontic Treatment and Invisalign

Learn more about orthodontic treatment at Riveredge by reviewing some of these common questions from our patients.

How long does orthodontic treatment take?
Most Inman Aligner cases take 6 to 16 weeks. Invisalign trays can take 7 weeks to 2 years.
How long should I wear the aligners each day?
The more you wear the appliance, the quicker your teeth will move. We recommend full-time wear (approximately 20 hours each day) and only remove it for mealtimes and cleaning your teeth.
How will I know if I am suitable for orthodontic treatment with the Inman Aligner?
Rapid orthodontic treatment works best on your front six teeth, the ones which show when you smile. However, if you have extremely crowded teeth, you will still need conventional orthodontic treatment, but we are happy to recommend the best approach for you.
Will the orthodontic appliance affect my speech?
At first, you may experience slight problems, but our patients tell us they get used to it after a few days and naturally learn to speak without issue.
