What are braces in Colchester?

Braces (also commonly referred to within the field of dentistry as ‘orthodontics’) have been present within the world of dental care for many years, within this time however they have progressed greatly! With this in mind, many dental clinics are now choosing to embrace the latest advancements within orthodontic technology and our clinic in Colchester is no exception.

How do braces in Colchester straighten your smile?

Many patients may be familiar with ‘braces’ as a dental term, despite this however they may be unsure of how the procedure achieves long lasting, effective dental results! Traditional metal braces, to name just one common conventional example, use a combination of metal wires and fixed brackets in order to apply pressure onto the surface of the teeth, therefore producing a straighter (and happier) smile!

Looking for a more discrete orthodontic alternative?

Traditional metal braces have been present within the field of dental care for a many number of years! Despite proving to be effective in amending the most severe dental cases traditional braces in Colchester are now being replaced by modern and therefore more subtle orthodontic alternatives.

What are ClearCorrect braces?

ClearCorrect braces are just one other example of a discrete alternative to conventional metal braces available at our clinic within Colchester. ClearCorrect braces are regarded as the ‘clear and simple’ modern alternative to traditional metal braces and work by gradually straightening our patients’ smiles.

How do ClearCorrect braces produce effective dental results?

ClearCorrect braces essentially produce a straighter smile with the use of clear aligner trays that are replaced every several weeks in order to gradually encourage the teeth to move into a straighter position. These custom made clear aligners are essentially invisible within the mouth! In addition to their discrete nature they are also entirely removable, making for a far more comfortable orthodontic experience.
