How is space created to move teeth if they are crowded?
Correct teeth alignment may mean our orthodontic dentist has to create some space to move the teeth by using IPR (interpoximal reduction).
What is IPR (inteproximal reduction)?
Interproximal reduction (IPR) is a quick and easy procedure where an orthodontic dentist uses some very precise tools, similar to thin nail files, to change the shape and size of your teeth, primarily on the sides where they touch each other.
This depends on the type of appliance used and the severity of your case. Teeth straightening can take anywhere between 14 weeks and two years to complete. Our orthodontic dentist will give you a better idea of time frames once you have been to see us for a consultation.
You will usually need to wear a retainer to stop your teeth from drifting back to their original position. Retainers are either fixed or removable. Fixed retainers are very thin wires glued to the back of the teeth. Removable retainers are like thin custom made mouth guards which you need to wear for a number of hours each day.
