Alignment in Durham
Mr Kinghorn is pleased to offer cosmetic tooth alignment in Durham City. Many people have would like to have straight teeth but do not want to wear conventional 'train-track braces'.
For many people there are alternatives:
Invisalign is one alternative that has been used by over 2.5 million people to straighten teeth in a discreet way using removable clear aligners. Other options may include Spring Appliances- not dissimilar to the Inman Aligner.
Are you suitable?
First your suitability for the treatment is checked. Invisalign has limitations to what it can do. If you aren't suitable then other alternatives can be discussed at length.
Before a treatment plan can be created we will need to take an impression of your teeth to confirm whether they can be straightened using the Invisalign System.
Once confirmed, a detailed treatment plan will then be developed using ClinCheck®, a virtual 3D treatment plan. ClinCheck shows the series of movements your teeth are projected to go through over the course of the treatment – so you can see how your teeth are expected to look at the end of your Invisalign treatment before it even begins.
When you begin your Invisalign treatment, you will wear each set of custom-made aligners in two-week increments.
As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will begin moving, little by little, gradually moving towards the projected final position. During this time you will have occasional check-ups with me in order to monitor your progress and ensure you are comfortable with the treatment
How Long Does it Take?
The time it takes to complete the treatment varies from person to person, depending on the complexity of the straightening required.
