Remember when you had to wear braces for three years to get straighter teeth? Dentistry has come a long way. With the help of science and breakthrough developments in orthodontics, a person with crooked teeth does not have to wait for years to achieve the said goal.
Accelerated orthodontics is a new concept in orthodontic treatment that can accomplish the same goals in much less time. Aesthetic Smiles is proud to bring this speedier treatment along with our other comprehensive range of dental solutions.
How Fast is It?
By its name, accelerated orthodontics shortens the time traditional orthodontics usually takes. From the usual three years waiting period, this new concept in orthodontic treatment can take anywhere from a mere three months to under a year.
Other than the quicker delivery of results, accelerated orthodontics also comes with several advantages. It improves overall health, helps correct structural problems and effectively helps the patient quickly overcome bite and speech issues.
How Does it Happen?
However, unlike traditional braces, accelerated orthodontics requires a minor surgical procedure, usually performed by a periodontist about a week after the braces are applied. This alters the gums and bones that hold the teeth in place so they move into their proper places faster.
The minor surgery mimics the same sensation of discomfort from dental cleaning. Patients may experience an itching sensation absent in traditional braces, which is the effect of the teeth and gums moving faster.
Six Month Smiles
Aesthetic Smiles offers the Six Month Smiles Program, a modern brace solution that provides a successful teeth straightening treatment in a shorter period of time. The brace is designed to correct mild orthodontic conditions and provide you with straighter looking teeth in just six months.

We are delighted to offer our clients the amazing Inman Aligner. This is a very quick and effective treatment for patients with minor orthodontic issues.
What is the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is a removable brace treatment, which is designed to correct issues with the front teeth, also known as the ‘social 6’. The Inman Aligner generates forces using a coiled spring and a metal bar to gently squeeze the teeth and move them in the right direction.
What are the advantages of the Inman Aligner?
The best thing about the Inman Aligner is the treatment time; with this system, the results are noticeable after just a few weeks and treatment is complete within 16 weeks. The brace is also removable, which gives you more freedom during the treatment process and it uses the latest techniques to prevent discomfort.
The aligner is not invisible like Invisalign aligners; however, the metal bar is fine and delicate and the brace is much more discreet than a traditional fixed brace.
As treatment time is very short, fewer appointments are needed than with most other treatments, and this means that this option is less expensive than most of the others.
Who can benefit from the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is aimed at patients who have minor orthodontic issues, such as mild crowding, which affect the front teeth. As it works very quickly, it is a popular option for people who want to look their best in time for a special event, such as their wedding day.
The Inman Aligner can only produce a limited amount of movement and it is not suitable for problems that affect the teeth at the back of the mouth. If you are not a suitable candidate for treatment, we can explore other options and help you to choose the best treatment for your needs. Contact the team near Thurmaston for more information.
Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic treatment system, which is suitable for teenagers and adults with minor, moderate or severe orthodontic issues.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment with a difference! Rather than employing traditional braces, Invisalign uses removable aligners to straighten the teeth and correct issues with the bite. The aligners are created based on a personalised treatment plan and each one is slightly different; the number of aligners used varies according to how much movement is required.
Invisalign aligners are made from transparent plastic, which means that they can barely be seen when you smile.
What does treatment involve?
Invisalign uses a series of aligners to transform the smile; each aligner is worn for two weeks at a time and then swapped for the next one until the series is complete. Invisalign aligners are removable and they should be taken out when you eat, drink and clean your teeth. It is important to wear your aligners for at least 21 hours per day to ensure the best outcome.
What do Invisalign aligners look like?
Invisalign aligners look similar to mouth guards, which are worn when you play sport, but they are clear. The aligners do not contain metal parts and they fit over the teeth.
Are Invisalign aligners painful?
Invisalign aligners may take a little getting used to, but they are considered a very comfortable treatment option; they use gentle forces to move the teeth and they do not contain any bands, which need adjusting.
How long does treatment with Invisalign take?
Treatment time for Invisalign depends on the amount of movement required but is typically between 12 and 18 months.

Adult orthodontics has become extremely popular and we are delighted to offer a range of treatments to suit patients of all ages. We are treating more adults than ever before; some have chosen to have treatment after forgoing it in their teenager years and some are experiencing orthodontic issues for the first time as a result of changes in tooth alignment and the shape of the mouth, which may occur during the adult years.
The benefits of orthodontic treatment
Orthodontic treatment has benefits for teenagers and adults; often, it is best to intervene early to prevent problems from getting worse, but sometimes problems do not become apparent until later life. Adult treatment tends to take longer, but there are many discreet treatment options available, which means that wearing braces is not such a daunting or unpleasant prospect.
Orthodontic issues such as problems with the bite, misaligned teeth, crowding, gaps between the teeth and crooked teeth, can impact on your oral health, as well as your ability to carry out normal oral functions; there is also the aesthetic impact to consider, which can have a knock-on effect on self-esteem and confidence.
Leaving orthodontic problems may contribute to pain associated with TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder, poor speech and difficulty chewing food.
Nowadays, there is a huge range of treatments available for orthodontic patients, from lingual braces that are fixed to the back of your teeth, to invisible aligners, which can barely be seen when you smile or speak. If you are interested in braces, contact us today to arrange a consultation and we can discuss the options available to you near Victoria Park.
Have you been told to consider orthodontic treatment? Are you thinking about having treatment to correct your crooked or crowded teeth? Are you searching for a treatment, which delivers results quicker than any other treatment around? If so, the Inman Aligner may be the perfect treatment for you.
What is the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is an orthodontic treatment, which is designed for patients with minor orthodontic needs. The aligner is made of a metal bar, which runs along the front of your teeth, and a spring, which is located at the back of your front teeth; these parts produce forces, which cause the teeth to be pushed and pulled into position. The Inman Aligner uses the latest technology to move the teeth very quickly with minimum discomfort.
We recommend appointments every 2-3 weeks during the treatment process so that we can monitor your progress and check that everything is on course for your brand new smile!
The Inman Aligner is removable and it is designed specifically for patients with issues affecting the front teeth.
What are the advantages of the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner has many advantages, but perhaps the most appealing aspect if this treatment is the speed at which the aligner works; most patients start to notice changes after just a few weeks and almost all cases are completely finished within just 4 months.
The Inman Aligner is also comfortable and convenient; you can take it out when you eat and when you clean your teeth, which makes oral hygiene and keeping your brace clean easier.
Who is the Inman Aligner designed for?
The Inman Aligner is designed for patients with minor crowding and slightly crooked front teeth; it is not suitable for patients who have more complex needs. This treatment may also be recommended for people who have already had orthodontic treatment, but started to experience relapse, which occurs when the teeth start to move out of their new position. Contact the team near Western Park for more information.
The Inman Aligner braces are one of the swiftest orthodontic treatments on the market; patients start to notice results within weeks and most cases are finished within just 4 months!
What is the Inman Aligner?
The Inman Aligner is unlike traditional fixed braces; rather than using brackets and wires to move the teeth, the Inman Aligner uses a spring coil and a metal bar to push and pull the teeth into position. The springs sit behind the teeth whilst the metal bar goes across the front of the teeth. The Inman Aligner is removable, but it is intended to be worn for at least 21 hours per day.
The Inman Aligner is a treatment for the front teeth; it is designed to correct minor crowding and mild issues with the social 6, the teeth that are visible when you smile.
Am I a suitable candidate for the Inman Aligner?
If you have minor problems with your front teeth and you are looking for a fast, painless and effective orthodontic treatment, this could be the ideal selection. Our friendly dentists will be able to tell you whether you are a suitable candidate for this treatment after they have examined your mouth and assessed your needs. If you have more complex needs and you need more movement, at Aesthetic Smiles near Aylestone we will happily go through some other options with you.
Are there any drawbacks?
The Inman Aligner sounds too good to be true, boasting amazing results in just a few months, but the truth is that it really is that great. The only real downside is that it is not invisible, like some other treatments; however, the metal bar is much more discreet than traditional fixed braces and treatment is so quick that you will barely notice that you’re wearing braces.
Many people associate orthodontic issues with teenage patients, but we are seeing an increasing number of adults who want to improve the aesthetic of the smile by addressing orthodontic problems. It is rare to have perfectly straight teeth, but there are so many options available to address this issue now and we strongly recommend orthodontic treatment.
Why is orthodontic treatment so important?
Orthodontic issues do not go away of their own accord and they often get worse with time; many of the adult patients we see put off having treatment during their teenage years. Treatment helps to improve the alignment and positioning of the teeth and jaws to improve tooth function, reduce the risk of oral health diseases and improve confidence and self-esteem by correcting aesthetic flaws caused by misalignment.
Options for adult patients
The field of Orthodontics is exciting and full of innovation; every year, new treatments are becoming available, treatment times are getting shorter and patients have more and more choice.
Fixed braces have been used for many decades, but they have come on in leaps and bounds and modern braces work quicker and cause much less discomfort than braces in previous eras.
Invisible braces are a very popular choice for adults who would rather not show off highly visible braces every time they smile. Invisible aligners have taken the world by storm and this trend looks set to continue in the future; they offer patients the chance to get a beautifully aligned smile without having to worry about their image.
Orthodontic treatment at Aesthetic Smiles
Our expert dentists near Beaumont Leys work closely with patients to choose the perfect treatment; they will be able to recommend treatments and discuss suitable options based on your individual needs, the kind of treatment you want and your budget and preferences in terms of the look of the brace and the time-scale. Your dentist will be happy to answer any questions you have about the different types of braces and they will help you to make the right decision.
It is now increasingly common to find adults who are looking to straighten their teeth, and where adult orthodontistry is concerned, discretion and speed are major concerns. The most successful adult braces have proven to either deliver their results as quickly as possible or with the most discretion possible. Many brands aim to deliver more than one of these goals through innovative and novel designs.
Modern braces for adults
Orthodontics are most often associated with teenagers and young adults, however more and more adults are now making use of dental technologies to straighten and revitalize their teeth. This is partly because our teeth can become misaligned in later life. Adult orthodontics can very effectively address a number of dental conditions, including crooked or protruding teeth, as well as improper or incorrect bits and irregularly spaced teeth.
By not addressing such conditions further problems like jaw pain and Temporomandibular Joint Disorder can develop, and these can influence the functionality and comfort of your jaws. Misaligned teeth can also leave you feeling less than confident in your teeth and how they look, thereby leaving you less comfortable in your smile.
We offer a range of adult braces
Aesthetic Smiles in Leicester can offer a dental service which selects from the range of orthodontic options available for what would be best suited to your ends.
Many modern dental braces are prepared with discretion in mind, although some brands aim for discretion over functionality and durability. Invisalign for example is a brand known for extremely discreet products which can take a year if not more on average to achieve your goals. The Inman Aligner on the other hand is made to be fairly discreet, however further emphasis is placed on achieving results more rapidly. Whichever of the many approaches available to you chosen by yourself and your Aesthetic Smiles specialist will undoubtedly confer the best possible results should you follow your treatments as you should.
