Are you unhappy with how straight your teeth appear? Many people hide their smile for years because they think treatment will take a long time and be expensive.
Adult teeth straightening, or orthodontics, is more popular than ever. You can have a cost-effective and speedy solution to help you smile with confidence again.
All delivered here at Grosvenor Dental Practice by the familiar team you can trust.
How is space created to move the teeth if they are crowded?
If we need to create some space to move the teeth then this is done using what is known as IPR (interpoximal reduction).
What is IPR (inteproximal reduction)?
Interproximal reduction (IPR) is a quick and easy procedure during which the 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. Treatment length can range from around 14 weeks to around 2 years. Your dentist will give you a better idea once you have been 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.
