Long gone are the days of traditional metallic braces that causes patients years of anxiety. We now have the ability use invisible brace systems which can correct your smile within just 6 months.
Rather than replacing your teeth to improve your smile, orthodontics is the best solution to make use of your existing smile. This dental treatment is quicker and more affordable than ever before, making it one of the fastest growing treatment areas in dentistry.
What are orthodontic braces?
Orthodontics is a part of dentistry that focuses on the growth of the teeth, jaw and face of a patient to permanently improve the appearance of your smile. Orthodontic braces are used to straighten your teeth and move them into a better position, greatly enhancing the appearance of your smile.
Orthodontics involves the use of a brace which is temporarily fixed onto your teeth in a semi-permanent fashion which over time applies gentle pressure to your teeth, moving them in their desired direction. There are removable braces available also, and braces come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and appearances. At SA benson we focus on the very best orthodontic technology for our patients, getting your desired smile as quickly as possible and keeping you confidently smiling during your treatment.
What system do we use at SA Benson?
We use a range of different orthodontic systems but our preferred method is using the Cfast tooth alignment system. There are 3 main reasons why this is our preferred system:
- Speed – Patients can have straight teeth within 6 months, much faster than traditional braces.
- Invisibility – The wires and brackets of the braces are almost invisible to the naked eye. No more metallic smiles.
- Affordable – The system is affordable and due to being so quick, reduces the time you have to spend with the dentist. We also offer 0% interest finance so orthodontics is more affordable than ever before.
The Cfast orthodontic system
The Cfast system uses clear orthodontic brackets and tooth-colored nickel-titanium wires which put gentle pressure on the brackets to level and align the teeth with minimal discomfort to the patient.
Cfast takes less time than other orthodontic options as it focuses only on the “social six”, the front teeth that most influence the smile and the special nickel-titanium wires which are more efficient at repositioning teeth.
Tooth coloured braces and wires make the system barely noticeable, and they only have to be worn for only a fraction of the time compared to traditional orthodontic braces. We want to achieve the best best results for our patients and minimise the time they have to spend with braces on, which is why we have chosen to use the Cfast system.
How do you know if you are suitable for orthodontic braces?
Due to the wide variety of different smile we encounter, it is difficult to give accurate guidelines which can determine if your a suitable candidate for orthodontic braces. Best thing to do is book an appointment with one of our dentists, if orthodontics isn’t the answer we will always be able to find an adequate solution to your dental issues.
Dr Shoaib Merali, principal dentist at SA Benson has received extensive training with orthodontics and the advanced use of the Cfast system. If you are interested in orthodontic treatment, he’s a great dentist to speak to.
