DentalKind are renowned orthodontists in Essex. Orthodontics is a specialist area in dentistry that deals with aligning teeth. Our dentists are able to offer simple to moderate treatments aimed at improving the smile. We work alongside local specialist orthodontists in Billericay for the treatment of more functional and advanced orthodontic cases. At DentalKind we offer several treatment modalities to perfectly straighten your teeth.
It is the healthiest way to correct:
You’re never too old to consider this option to improve your smile. It works very well and is a cost effective alternative to veneers and other porcelain bonded restorations. Orthodontics can be used as part of a complex treatment plan, for example a before a smile makeover or moving teeth prior to placing dental implants.
Nowadays, straightening teeth rarely involves taking teeth out and if we do need to create space for moving teeth we can do this by a process called interdental stripping using abrasive floss to safely create very small spaces between your teeth. We recommend lifelong retention after successfully completing your treatment with either a removable retainer to wear at night, or a fixed bonded retainer. Your dentist will discuss this in more detail.
An Inman Aligner is a removable custom-made appliance that is worn ideally 20-22 hours a day and the teeth are essentially "pushed" into place.
Treatment time is generally between 8-16 weeks and it solely works on aligning your front teeth.
It is a very popular choice as it is faster and cheaper than other options; however it is only recommended for mild to moderate situations.

Invisalign is one of the original types of "invisible" clear braces and in our opinion it is the best clear aligner on the market. The treatment process involves your dentist taking photos and moulds of your teeth, which are then scanned onto a computer and your treatment is planned by a team using the most predictable methods. DentalKind are one of the few providers of Invisalign Braces in Essex.
Removable clear plastic aligners are used to slowly move the teeth to the desired position. Each aligner should be worn at all times, except for eating, for a period of 2 weeks and the total treatment times can vary from 14 weeks to 2 years depending on complexity.

This is a fast growing, revolutionary way to improve your smile and straighten your teeth quickly. The 6MS brace is a fixed clear brace, which is fitted by the dentist and results are typically achieved in 6 months, or less.
There are no unsightly metallic brackets or wires and the process is a lot more relaxed. Another great advantage of the 6MS is that it is very cost effective given its speed and efficiency.

For the long-term success of your orthodontic treatment we recommend retention for life.
You can choose to have a completely hidden wire bonded behind the teeth to hold them in place or simply have a removable clear retainer.
We suggest the 'belts & braces' approach and have both, just in case one fails without you being aware.
Your dentist will discuss the different types and what will work best with you and your lifestyle.
