Many patients are unhappy and embarrassed about their teeth because they are crooked, crowded or gappy. When most people think about orthodontics and braces, they imagine traditional metal braces, which are very obvious and can cause further self-consciousness, as well as taking a long time for treatment to complete.

At Sandown Dental we offer a number of solutions which can discreetly straighten your teeth in a much shorter timeframe. Associate Dentist, Janice Brown is an accredited Six Month Smiles and Inman Aligner Provider, with considerable experience in treating cosmetic orthodontic problems. She is dedicated to providing quality dental care with a personal approach, and offers a free consultation to those interested in invisible braces.

Six Month Smiles Testimonial

Like the name suggests, these braces gently straighten your teeth in approximately six months. What is more, the braces are comprised of clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, meaning they are hardly noticeable.

Six Month Smiles is a discreet cosmetic orthodontic solution that can successfully treat a wide variety of orthodontic complaints, including spacing between teeth, crooked or rotated teeth, and crowding or symmetry problems.

The treatment is more gentle than conventional braces because it uses lower force than other orthodontic treatments and focuses on the cosmetic aspect of your teeth - those that show when you smile.

Inman Aligners

The Inman Aligner is designed to correct adult relapse and misaligned teeth. It is barely visible, apart from a single clear wire, and it is a removable orthodontic appliance, allowing the wearer to go brace-free for important occasions.

It is similar to a retainer but it also:

Inman Aligners

  • Corrects moderate crowding and rotation of teeth
  • Is more comfortable to wear as the spring is made of nickel titanium rather than stainless steel
  • Has fewer retention problems

The Inman Aligner utilises a lingual coil spring that puts pressure at the back of the teeth that need repositioning and a bar that is placed across the front of the teeth reverses the same pressure. These components work together to "squeeze" teeth together by pushing and pulling them into alignment.

Fitting the aligner involves two 30 minute appointments, followed by a 15-minute monthly check-up. Treatment is much quicker than traditional braces with results achieved in as little as 8-16 weeks.

If you are interested in invisible braces we offer the option of spreading the cost of treatment with our 0% finance facility. Contact the practice today to book your free consultation 02890 471070.

Sandown Dental & Implant Clinic

With my wedding coming up I decided it was time to do something about my smile because I hated how it looked and I dreaded the thought of wedding photographs. I spoke to my dentist, Janice Brown a Six Month Smile Practitioner and she gave me her honest opinion on how my teeth would adapt to treatment and how long it would take. I was fitted with my tooth-coloured braces in February and they came off in July in time for my wedding day. The treatment also included teeth whitening which was an added bonus! My wedding was truly the best day of my life and I felt confident smiling away showing my straight, white teeth. I would highly recommend Janice and the team at Sandown as their expertise and high quality service filled me with confidence throughout the experience.
