Simpli5 Braces System For Patients Near Rathmines
The devil really does lurk in the details and it is those slight problems that can sometimes be more maddening than the big ones, as you are never sure if treatment is worth the hassle. Perhaps you have a few teeth that are a little crooked, you’d love to straighten your teeth but memories of train-track braces loom over you like spectres spawned from adolescence. Perhaps other ‘clear’ or ‘invisible’ braces have been suggested to you, but even these seem to take that little bit too long. Enter Simpli5, a brilliant brace for minor corrections.
What is Simpli5?
Simpli5 is a series of clear and removable plastic aligners which are best suited to minor orthodontic corrections.
What are the advantages of Simpli5?
Aesthetics and speed: The braces are practically invisible and can even be removed for social functions; meaning no need ever know you are wearing them. Average treatment time is also between three five months, which is significantly less than the 3 years that standard orthodontics can take. Simpli5 retainers can be removed for eating and cleaning and will have little impact on your speech. They are also significantly cheaper than other ‘invisible’ orthodontic treatments!
How does treatment work?
Firstly, impressions of your teeth will need to be taken in order to produce the aligners. Thankfully, you should receive your aligners 3-4 weeks after the impressions are taken. The treatments work in increments; each aligner will gently move your teeth and, after the plate starts to feel loose, you move onto the next one (throughout treatment each aligner tends to be worn for about 3 to 4 weeks). Your dentist will ask you to attend regular checkups, just to check that treatment is progressing as it should. It is important to note that Simpli5 aligners should be worn for 20 hours a day, otherwise your treatment may not progress as planned.
