Teeth Straightening

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the alignment of teeth, and the bite (how your teeth meet together). The most commonly used treatment is braces. At Rugby Dental Care we offer a wide range of options for patients who want to straighten their teeth.

Many adults are unhappy with the alignment of their teeth. They may have missed out on orthodontic treatment as a child or may have had corrective treatment, only to find their teeth have moved back to their old position.

At our Rugby dental practice we understand that while patients would like to straighten their teeth, they thought of wearing conventional braces can be off-putting. Many people think of orthodontics only as the traditional metal wire and bracket “train track” style braces commonly worn by children and teenagers. While these remain one of the most effective ways to straighten your teeth, they are not always compatible with a busy personal and professional adult lifestyle. That’s why we are pleased to offer a wide selection of discreet orthodontic treatment options.

What are discreet orthodontics?

Discreet orthodontics employs traditional orthodontic principles but modernises them to provide treatment that is either invisible or almost invisible. At our Warwickshire dental practice we offer both fixed and removable devices to improve the alignment of your teeth. The best treatment option for you will depend on your individual needs and wants, and will be discussed at your initial consultation.

Treatment options include. . .

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces work in the same way as regular braces, but use tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets to gently move your teeth into a new position. This means that they are barely noticeable in everyday life.

Lingual braces

Lingual braces also work in the same way as conventional braces, but are attached to the back of your teeth, beside your tongue. This means that nobody will be able to see you are having treatment.

Removable braces/aligners

Removable braces and aligners are made of clear plastic, each individually created to fit your teeth snugly. As well as being clear, thus invisible, these devices can be taken out to eat, drink and clean, helping you maintain good dental hygiene during treatment.
