Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment or tooth straightening is becoming increasingly popular with adults as well as children. The latest orthodontic technology and techniques mean that it is now possible to treat over-crowded or misaligned teeth at virtually any age.

Your choice of orthodontic treatment

At Park Dental in Poole we offer a choice of orthodontic treatments so you can choose the one that best suits your teeth, lifestyle and budget.

We offer traditional fixed braces, sometimes called ‘train tracks’. These are very effective and affordable. They are smaller, more comfortable and often faster than they used to be.

If you want to straighten your teeth without anyone noticing then you will be interested in our virtually invisible braces. The In-line clear brace system and the Inman Aligner are both virtually invisible as wel as being removable, making eating and cleaning easy. We also offer 6 Month Smiles for patients who are suitable. This system can provide you with a beautifully straight smile in just six months.

Improving your confidence with orthodontics

Knowing your smile is looking good can have a positive effect on your confidence and well-being. It can also help you maintain healthier teeth and gums – straight teeth are much easier to clean than misaligned teeth, reducing the risk of decay or gum disease.

Smilelign – the clear choice for a better smile

Smilelign is a pioneering orthodontic planning system which integrates the latest software and 3D CADCAM technology to enable experienced technicians to produce effective tooth alignment treatment plans. The Smilelign laboratory then use the highest quality materials to produce the clearest, most effective orthodontic aligners in order to deliver outstanding and predictable results.

Your treatment with Smilelign

Smilelign treatment starts with a routine examination of your teeth at which we will also take moulds. These moulds are scanned in the Smilelign laboratory and 3D images are produced. The 3D image of your teeth is assessed and a treatment plan and set of aligners are made specifically for you. Each aligner is minutely different, moving your teeth in gradual stages to their new position. Treatment can be really quick, dependent on your case, 6-12 months is a realistic time.

'Amazing treatment. I didn't think it would make as much of a difference. I thoroughly recommend this treatment.'

Imagine if you could have a beautifully straight smile in just eight weeks, without having to wear unsightly braces and without having to spend a fortune.

Now you can, thanks to a revolutionary new treatment – the Inman Aligner®. This is perfect for clients who are self-conscious about their appearance, and those who do not want to commit to lengthy treatments.

An alternative to traditional braces

The aligner is a little like a sports mouthguard, but is thinner and transparent, making it virtually invisible. It is also removable, which means you can still eat whatever you like, and you can clean your teeth as normal without the need for fiddly brushing between wires.

Highly effective Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner system works by applying a gentle pressure on your teeth, gradually moving them into the correct position. In just four months at the very most, you will have a beautifully straight smile.

Six month braces utilises clear braces to gently straighten teeth in an average time of only six months!

By focusing on the teeth that show when you smile and not making significant bite changes, your dentist can comfortably straighten your teeth and give you the attractive, pleasant smile you've always wanted.

Six month braces is conservative, inexpensive, and highly effective.

What are Six Month Smiles?

6 Month Smiles, also known as six month braces:

  • Uses clear brackets so people can't tell you're wearing braces
  • Have wires that are tooth-coloured and are very small
  • Treatment times usually fall within 4 - 9 months
  • Ensure that discomfort is minimal as teeth are gently repositioned
  • Cost usually less than traditional braces

How can teeth be straightened in only six months?

The technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.

We use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply "tightening" regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. We utilise standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.

Will I have to wear a retainer?

As with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don't want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
