Not only are straighter teeth seen as being healthy, they are in fact better for your health. That’s because straighter teeth have fewer places for bacterial plaque to accumulate and give off the acid that leads to tooth decay and gum disease.
If you are considering the idea of teeth straightening in Bournemouth, but are reluctant to have to live with the embarrassment and possible discomfort of fixed bracket and wire braces, then here at the Queens Park Dental Team, we can offer you a great solution.
Get in line with In-Line
At our dental practice in Bournemouth, teeth straightening is achieved with the In-Line system of aligners from Germany.
These twin-layered, clear plastic trays fit over the teeth to become almost invisible. You will receive a series of them to wear consecutively. Each one is slightly different, and will move your teeth by up to 0.6 millimetres. Each aligner takes between four and six weeks to do its work, and you will need to wear it for about 20 hours a day, before moving onto the next aligner, which will move your teeth along another 0.6 millimetres.
When you use this method of teeth straightening in Bournemouth, you don’t have to worry about it getting in the way of eating, drinking and even social events if necessary. As the aligners are removable, it will be easy to keep your teeth, as well as the aligner, clean. You just take it out and brush. You must brush your teeth after every time you eat.
Your journey with us
When you come to see us at Queens Park Dental Team for teeth straightening in Bournemouth, our dentist Hannah Neve will give you an instruction card on how to care for your aligners and a small case to store them when you are not wearing them, for meals and so on. Throughout the course of your treatment, you will need to come back for appointments to change to the next aligner and check how things are progressing.
Once your teeth have reached their correct position, they will need a retainer to settle in and stay put. We offer removable or fixed retainers.
