Clear braces

At Portman Dental & Implant Clinic we use a clear brace system called Smilelign. This consists of a series of virtually invisible, removable aligners that are changed every two to three weeks. Treatment can take as little as 12 weeks, depending on the alterations required. Each aligner is carefully designed specifically for your teeth and moves them in small stages, little by little, week by week, until they have reached the final position prescribed by your dentist.

Smilelign invisible braces are clear and comfortable. They don't get in the way of your lifestyle, and can easily be removed the for a short space of time for an important meeting or event.

Smilelign clear braces should be removed for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing, and can also be removed to clean your teeth, allowing you to maintain good oral hygiene.

Orthodontics

Who can benefit from orthodontic treatment?

At Portman, we have treated thousands of patients, aged from eight to 88 years old. There is never a point in life where we cannot move healthy crooked teeth into their ideal positions.

Orthodontics

Why are my teeth not straight?

There are many causes of overcrowding, gaps and crooked teeth. For some people it can be inherited or possibly acquired, either due to a habit (sucking of the thumb, prolonged use of a dummy), or because of the premature loss of milk teeth or adult teeth.

What can be treated?

Orthodontic treatments have evolved enormously over the last 20 years. Now problems such as gaps between the teeth, crowded teeth, overbite (upper teeth covering the majority of the lower ones), open bite (upper and lower teeth almost don’t touch) and cross bites can all be treated.

Orthodontics

Should teeth be straightened for health reasons?

The correction of poor dental positioning also improves oral hygiene, as crowded or crooked teeth are often hard to clean properly. With such an improvement, the risk of gum disease for example – which can result in loss of teeth in extreme cases – is prevented.

What other benefits does teeth straightening offer?

Orthodontic treatment improves chewing efficiency by re-establishing the correct relationship between lower and upper teeth, removing the difficulty you may have when chewing certain kinds of food, and so providing better nutrition. 

In some cases, orthodontics can also prevent complications in the temporomandibular joint (the joint which joins the jaw to the skull). Chronic pain in the head, face, neck or ears, as well as dizziness, nausea and restricted ability to open and close the mouth can originate here.
