What is orthodontics in Navan?

Tuesday, 19th May, 2020

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that treats malocclusions; which refers to a dental condition where your teeth don't align properly when you close your mouth. 

Most people consider orthodontics to be treatments for children. However, the opposite is true, whereby adult orthodontist in Navan is fast-growing.

Among the many procedures we offer at Navan Dental, our orthodontic treatments are some of the most life-changing. 

The different orthodontist in Navan we offer

There's no "one-size-fits-all" to straightening teeth. What might render positive results for others might not be the most viable solution for you. 

Our dentist, Dr. McMorrow, will assess your teeth, provide you with a diagnosis, and recommend a straightening device that is suitable for your issue. 

Braces can fix multiple problems, ranging from closing gaps between teeth and straightening pearly whites, through to correcting overlapping teeth. On top of enhancing your facial appearance, straightening appliances improve upon your oral health by strengthening your teeth and gums, and preventing future wear and tear issues. 

Our most popular devices include the following:

Inman Aligner

Do your crowded or protruding front teeth cause you anxiety? Instead of opting to wear braces, where treatment takes one or two years, opt for an Inman Aligner. 

The perks of opting for an Inman Aligner are that you only have to wear it for approximately a couple of months. Some users have reported only needing it for as little as six weeks. 

Aside from a much shorter treatment time, these aligners are removable, which means you can wear aligners without them disrupting your life much. 

However, one thing to note is that this treatment only works on fixing your front teeth. Therefore, more complicated dental cases need alternative orthodontist in Navan

Six Months Smiles

Six Months Smiles is probably what you think; straighter teeth in six months. The success of this treatment isn't that it straightens teeth faster, only that it's modified and doesn't fix all your teeth. You see the operative words that best describe Six Months Smiles are "straighter teeth", meaning your back molars and other pearly whites that aren't on display aren't pulled into a new position. 

Therefore, we must stress that this treatment is primarily cosmetic. Have you got an upcoming wedding or important dates where lots of smiling for the camera is involved? Six Months Smiles repair the teeth that are the most visible. 

Like Inman Aligners, Six Months Smile should only be considered for superficial and mild dental issues. 

Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners are well-loved because they're a long-lasting teeth-straightening solution. Adding to the fact that these aligners are virtually invisible, and you've found yourself the perfect device. 

These aligners are custom-fabricated to move your teeth incrementally into their desired position. Every two weeks, you'll receive a new pair of aligners which differ in shape slightly to the last. You must change them for treatment to be effective. 

Wearing this appliance grants you a dream smile, while providing you with the ideal experience for wearing braces whereby nobody knows you're sporting the device. Lastly, Clear Aligners are said to be more comfortable and less evident than standard metal braces.
