If you’re not familiar with the world of orthodontics, you may not think that the words ‘braces’ and ‘simple treatment’ go hand in hand. However, there have been major breakthroughs in dentistry in the last decade or so, and you may be surprised at what we can do. Today, we can offer a dazzling array of treatments that will transform your smile with no hassle at all.
One of our most impressive options is Simpli5. This is an innovative invisible brace system, which uses a sequence of five bespoke removable braces to straighten the teeth.
Tell me more about Simpli5!
Simpli5 treatment is geared towards patients who require treatment for minor orthodontic issues. Treatment involves wearing a series of custom-designed braces known as aligners. The aligners are worn in sequence and each one is shaped slightly differently. These appliances exert pressure on the teeth, causing them to move in the desired direction.
With Simpli5, you can achieve results very quickly. Each aligner is worn for just 2-4 weeks, meaning that the average treatment time is 10-20 weeks.
What are the advantages?
The speed of treatment is a major draw, especially for those who have special events looming. The other selling-point of this system is the aesthetic. Simpli5 aligners are made from high-grade plastic, which is virtually invisible when the aligner is in place. This means you can smile without worrying what anyone thinks about your braces. Many adults put off having orthodontic treatment because they don’t want to be lumbered with unsightly braces. This system offers a solution that results without anyone even knowing that you’ve got braces.
Who is a good match for Simpli5?
Simpli5 is generally recommended for patients who have minor issues that involve the front teeth, such as small gaps between the front teeth and mild crowding. When you go for your consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth and carry out some basic tests like X-rays to determine if this option is suitable for you. If it isn’t a good match for you, there are lots of other options on offer.
