Orthodontics (teeth straightening)

Our DNA code

Few people have a DNA that gifts them a perfect smile and perfectly aligned teeth. As clinicians, however, we sometimes need to challenge the genetic code that has compromised our smiles. Innovative dentistry means there is no need to live with crooked and irregular teeth or tolerate a bite that doesn’t align properly.

The discipline for rearranging teeth is known as orthodontic treatment. It involves the use of dental braces, but the kind of appliances we use at North Street Dental, Dudley, West Midlands do not cosmetically compromise patients during therapy.

There are no unsightly wires or clamps, and most people would not even realise when you are wearing our braces.

Orthodontics – the ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ of invisible braces

Thanks to advances in technology and dental materials, conspicuous, chunky braces are no longer a necessary step in straightening misaligned teeth.

At our Dudley clinic, we use Invisalign clear braces for our orthodontic treatment, so the only thing that shows is the natural colour of teeth.

They are popular with teens and a growing number of image-conscious young adults.

They can help correct crowding, spacing, crossbites, overbites and underbites.

Additional information can be found on our blog post ‘The secret of invisible tooth straightening‘.

Invisalign therapy

Invisalign treatment is designed to slot seamlessly into daily routines without any fuss or embarrassment.

There are no metal wires or brackets, so there’s no need to worry about mouth irritations as the aligners are comfortable to wear and you can easily remove them for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.

A short video explaining the Invisalign treatment

Transparent aligners

The transparent aligners are difficult to detect when worn and they will carefully straighten teeth without patients feeling self-conscious.

Should you have an important meeting or event coming up that’s causing concern, you can always remove the aligners for that short space of time, but you must return them as soon as possible.

The orthodontic treatment model consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are changed every two weeks or so for a new prescription. Each aligner is individually manufactured for the patient. Over several weeks as the aligners are changed teeth begin to move into their correct position.

3-D treatment plan

A virtual 3-D treatment plan (ClinCheck© treatment plan), will configure the aligners required. ClinCheck shows the series of movements teeth will go through, allowing a clear insight into the finished look.

If you’re ready for a smile transformation that does not interfere with your day-to-day life, Invisalign may be right for you.
