Short Term Dental Braces | FAQs

What Are Short Term Dental Braces?

Short Term Dental Braces (also referred to as Short Term Teeth Braces) offer an alternative approach of treatment for addressing a number of common teeth alignment and teeth placement conditions.  Short Term Braces are mainly used in situations which predominantly involve alignment or movement of the front and side teeth.  For more major teeth alignment conditions Full Term Dental Braces may be required.  This method of treatment is also mainly suitable for adult teeth.

What Are Short Term Braces Made of? 

Our Short Term Braces are made of teeth coloured materials which are fitted to your teeth.  High tech archwires are also fitted to assist with moving the teeth to their desired position.  The result is a nearly invisible appearance of fitted braces.

How Long Will Treatment Take?

Treatment is dependent on the severity of each individual patient's orthodontic issues.  Treatment may vary from anywhere between four months to nine months with an average treatment taking around six months. 

Will I Need to Wear a Retainer?

Yes.  Once your treatment is completed, and your dental braces are removed, you will be required to wear a retainer.  By wearing a retainer at a consistent level, it will ensure your teeth remain in their adjusted position. 

What Is the Likely Cost of Short Term Braces? 

The overall cost of treatment is likely to be cheaper than standard Full Term Braces due to the reduced time and number of treatments needing to be undertaken to achieve the desired results.  At your initial consultation we can happily discuss with you your cost of treatment and our payment options. 

How Long Is the Initial Consultation Appointment?

Your initial consultation is approximately 30 mins, and at this consultation we take the time to discuss your treatment requirements, general dental concerns, and recommend the optimal approach for you.
