Insignia – as effective as traditional braces
Clear plastic aligners have become a popular orthodontic treatment option for many people as they are so discreet no one will know you’re wearing them. However, they aren’t suitable for all orthodontic problems. If your orthodontic requirements mean you need traditional braces, but you want that discreet element, Insignia could be what you’re looking for.
Tailored to your individual needs
Insignia are custom made to your teeth providing you with the individual treatment you need to straighten them. The process involves having an impression of your teeth taken which is then turned into a 3D representation of your bite using sophisticated imaging software. From this blueprint of your teeth, your very own set of wires and brackets are made. These are then fitted to the surface of your teeth, much like traditional braces are, but the difference is they’re much smaller and less noticeable offering you that discreet treatment option you were hoping for.
The software used as part of the Insignia system also allows you to see what your teeth will look like once treatment has finished, which usually takes between 12 and 24 months.
Insignia are only suitable for certain orthodontic problems but we’ll be able to let you know if it’s a treatment option for you at your free appointment.
