Braces in Camden come in different types, sizes and materials. Whether fixed or removable, braces are offered by many dental practices, including Ace Dental. They are ideal for self-conscious teenagers as well as busy adults who do not wish to alter their lifestyle considerably.

Inman aligner

The Inman aligner is a removable appliance that helps straighten teeth in a short period of time. The treatment consists of 2 opposing sections putting mild pressure on the front and the back of the teeth. The treatment focuses on treating the front 4 teeth, therefore it is not ideal for patients with a complex bite or misalignment problems. Duration of treatment rarely exceeds 6 weeks.

Invisalign

Invisalign is an innovative teeth straightening treatment that helps move teeth into their right position with the help of transparent, custom-made, removable aligners. Invisalign aligners are made with the aid of 3D technology. The treatment is fairly predictable,with patients changing their aligners every 2 weeks or so. Invisalign braces are removable and can be taken out for eating, brushing and flossing. However, they need to be worn at least 22 hours per day for effective treatment. Invisalign aligners are very comfortable to wear and require very few adjustments compared to traditional braces. Treatment time averages 12 months.

Lingual braces

Just like metal braces, lingual braces in Camden are made of metal brackets and wires, which are fixed to the backs of the teeth. Lingual braces work in the same way as traditional braces, by applying gentle but constant pressure on the tooth roots, helping them gradually move over time. However, unlike metal braces that can be unattractive, lingual braces are barely visible. This way, patients can smile confidently while wearing them.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is another fixed braces system, which is inconspicuous since they are made of clear brackets and wires. They focus on the front teeth only, so they are not ideal for severely misaligned teeth.
