Available Orthodontic Treatments

Orthodontic treatments can be broken down into three categories:

Fixed Orthodontics

The traditional form of braces, a fixed brace consists of brackets and bands which are temporarily cemented or bonded to your teeth. Thin, flexible metal wires then gently push the teeth into the correct positions. This firm control implemented by the brace is imperative to guide teeth more accurately. The brace is a fixed appliance and therefore cannot be removed by the wearer. We use the latest in Damon bracket technology.

Removable Orthodontics

Townley House Dental Practice offers both fixed or removable braces. If your child still has baby teeth or is still growing, then a removable brace may be the most suitable option for them. Functional removable braces normalise your child’s bite by changing jaw growth.

Invisible Orthodontics

Thanks to our use of invisalign® aligners, no one will know these invisible orthodontics are there. Under your dentist’s instructions, invisalign® uses the latest advances in 3-D computer technology to create a series of custom-made removable mouth trays or aligners. Applying a controlled amount of force to your teeth, these aligners cause your teeth to move gradually into the desired position.

Invisalign Removable Orthodontics – The Clear Alternative to Braces

Invisalign orthodontics allow you to straighten your teeth in as little as 6 months, with nearly invisible clear braces. Here at Townley House Dental Practice, we are proud to offer one of the most popular and subtle clear brace treatments in the world.

Call us or get in touch and book your free consultation today with Dr Nicola Marr.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign braces work through a unique orthodontic system that uses almost invisible teeth aligners to gently straighten your teeth. The Invisalign brace is custom-made to move your teeth little by little, subtly transforming your smile in as little as 6 months. Invisalign braces allow you to remain discreet about your treatment, as well as allow for more freedom in your day to day life than regular braces. The custom made Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to easily take them out when required. Invisalign braces are also highly recommended for those who participate in contact sports. Invisalign clear aligners can be removed before you play, allowing you to use a mouth guard to protect your teeth from damage during the game.

How Fast Does Invisalign Work?

By changing your Invisalign aligners every week, with consistent wear you can achieve the smile you want in as little as 6 months. That’s six times faster than regular braces, which are usually worn for around 18 months. More advanced cases may take longer than 6 months, however Invisalign treatment will always be the more efficient alternative to regular braces.

Can I See The End Result?

Here at Townley House Dental Practice, we know that before you commit to a long term orthodontic treatment, it’s reassuring and exciting to have an idea of what the end result will be. We use Invisalign Clincheck to create a 3D simulation of your teeth and show you exactly how your teeth will move and realign throughout the course of your Invisalign treatment. Clincheck also provides a before and after treatment indicator so that you know exactly what to expect, allowing you to make an informed and comfortable decision about your orthodontic treatment. Our highly trained staff will also walk you through every step of your journey to your future smile.

How Do I Know if Invisalign is Right for Me?

We offer a complimentary Invisalign Consultation to every potential client, so you can feel confident about your treatment. Our consultations will allow you to explore and compare the options available to you, as well as show you the difference that an Invisalign treatment can make.

Can I Spread Out the Cost of Treatment?

Yes. We believe in making our treatments accessible to everyone, which is why we offer a range of treatment specific Interest Free payment plans to suit every patient. By spreading out the cost, you can have the smile you’ve always wanted, without any of the stress. Refer to our Fees & Financing page for more information.

Damon Braces – Fixed Orthodontic Treatment

Townley House Dental Practice is proud to offer our clients Damon Braces, the latest in fixed-bracket technology. Damon Braces are one of the most discreet, fast acting and comfortable fixed brace systems available, providing excellent levels of tooth movement while remaining unnoticed inside the mouth.

Why Are Damon Braces More Discreet?

The Damon Brace system uses ceramic-reinforced composite brackets, which blend in with the natural colour of your teeth. The Damon Brace is not completely invisible like clear aligners, but they are only noticeable from close up. The softer and blended appearance of Damon Braces means that even if people do see them, the effect on the smile and their visibility against your teeth will be a great deal less severe than with traditional braces

Why Are Damon Braces More Comfortable?

Damon Braces use friction-free, self-ligating technology, and therefore require no metal or elastic ties. These ties are often the main cause of gum irritation, as they need to be tightened regularly. Damon Braces use slide technology, where the brackets use a slide mechanism to hold the wires, providing optimum tooth movement without the excessive pressure of metal and elastic ties.

Why Are Damon Braces Faster?

The combination of self-ligating memory wire and friction-free brackets lead to treatment that is 4-6 months faster than other fixed brace systems.

What Are the Other Advantages of Damon Braces?

Damon braces are one of the only easy-to-clean fixed brace treatments. Usually the fixed wires, brackets and elastic of fixed braces create a feeding ground for plaque and bacteria. Damon Braces do not have these, meaning they are a great deal more hygienic for the patient.

Why Should I Choose Damon Braces?

Although Damon Braces are not as discreet as invisible aligner systems, they provide a much higher level of movement that removable aligners are unable to achieve. Problems such as overbites, crossbites, underbites and other complex cases are often unsuitable for aligners – but these issues can be remedied with fixed brace systems like Damon Braces. Fixed braces are also a great deal faster than removable aligners.
