Braces FAQ

Am I too old for orthodontics?

You’re never too old to achieve the straighter smile you’ve always wanted. Our cosmetic braces offer adults of any age a discreet and effective way to refresh their smile.

How long does orthodontic treatment take?

The length of time your treatment will take very much depends on a variety of factors including your age, the severity of the problem to be treated and the type of system we use. Invisalign i7® can deliver noticeable results for minor problems in as little as three months, whereas treatment with Cfast fixed braces may take a year or longer.

You are welcome to book a complimentary orthodontics consultation to discuss your treatment options. During this appointment, we will be able to give you an estimated treatment time.

Can anyone opt for invisible adult orthodontics?

Systems such as the Invisalign i7® and Invisalign Express® are likely to be suitable if you have a minor problem, such as crowding of the front teeth. We would not recommend these systems if you have more complicated issues.

To find out whether you are a suitable candidate for adult orthodontics, we would recommend that you book one of our free orthodontic consultations.

Can I take out my brace for special occasions?

The joy of a removable brace or aligner such as Invisalign i7® or Invisalign Express® is that they can be removed when you are eating or for special occasions.

What are the advantages of Cfast fixed braces?

Because you can choose from ceramic brackets and clear wires, the Cfast braces provide a better treatment option if you are worried about wearing braces to work or school. Although the brace is still visible, the innovative design means that you will not have to wear it for as long as you would a traditional brace.

Do fixed braces hurt?

With fixed braces, you may experience some discomfort in the early days as you learn to adjust to the sensation of the wires and ceramic brackets inside your mouth. However, these problems tend to pass within three to four days. The innovative design of the Cfast brace system means that these braces are more comfortable than traditional fixed braces.
