MBrace® aligners

MBrace Clear Aligners

 

What is Mbrace®?

MBrace is a clear aligner used to correct misaligned teeth with ease and comfort. It is clear and removable which makes it almost unnoticeable by others and convenient to use. The aligners are custom-made digitally and fabricated individually to ensure a perfect and accurate fit for your teeth.

how does MBrace® work?

MBrace aligner is designed in a way that it does not require any wires or attachments to align your teeth. Just simply wear a series of aligners to exert gradual force against the teeth at different treatment stages to slowly move the teeth towards the final tooth position.

Patients are advised to wear every set of aligners for 2 weeks, at least 22 hours a day before moving to the next aligners.

treatment duration

A more severe teeth condition will take longer time to treat, as more aligners are required over the entire course of treatment.

Typically, MBrace treatment vary from anywhere between 6 to 24 months. Below illustrate the average treatment period based on the severity of the case.

 

What We Can Treat

MBrace® can help with the following conditions:

Overcrowded teeth

When there is insufficient space between teeth, teeth can overlap and get worse over time. Brushing and flossing can be less effective-leading to plaque build-up, tooth decay or even gum disease.

 

Gaps Between Teeth

Besides aesthetic considerations, gaps between teeth can result in gum disease when food is stuck.

 

Overbite

When the upper teeth overlap deeply into lower teeth, it is called an overbite. Depending on the extent of the overbite, the lower chin can appear weak and undefined, affecting the facial profile. A deep overbite can cause irritation to gums, chewing problems , jaw pains and other issues that can worsen over time.

 

Underbite

When the lower teeth overlap the upper teeth, and the lower jaw protrudes, this will impair the normal function of the front teeth resulting in bite problems and wear of teeth.

 

Overbite

One or more upper teeth are covered by the lower teeth, which can cause chewing problems, worn down teeth, gum disease and a whole host of other mouth, jaw joints, and neck related issues.

 

Increased Overjet

The condition of buck teeth is characterized by increased overjet, or horizontal distance, between the upper front teeth and lower front teeth. Some may find this aesthetically unpleasing and the functionality of the front teeth is compromised.

Valplast® Flexible Partials

General-Dentistry

valpast

Valplast® is a type of flexible, nylon resin that is developed for the use in flexible removable denture. Valplast®  Flexible Partials were invented in the early 1950’s as an alternative to traditional metal and acrylic removable partial dentures (RPD’s). By using a flexible nylon base, Valplast®  eliminates the need for metal frameworks or acrylic resins for the construction of removable partial dentures.

Tooth Replacement Options

valpast06

When you’re ready to replace missing teeth, you have a number of potential solutions available, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Replacing your missing teeth is a big decision and it is important to consider several factors.

 

Comfort

valpast04

When considering a removable partial denture, many people find the Valplast®  Flexible Partials to be the most comfortable option, and the final restoration can be made very quickly. While the cost is often higher than a partial made with visible clasps, the results of the flexible partial are beautiful, and patient satisfaction is very high. The Valplast®  Flexible Partials involves only non-invasive procedures, and gives you confidence in your restoration while talking, eating and most importantly: smiling.

Aesthetic

If you can’t bear the thought of visible metal clasps or a series of temporaries that change with each appointment, Valplast®  Flexible Partials is an option that looks very natural and will stay beautiful and comfortable for years to come. Even fixed restorations that look good at first could deteriorate over time due to gum recession or changes in your mouth.

Valplast Denture can be flexed

Longevity

Denture acrylics and metal alloys may be prone to breakage and fracture over the course of time. Valplast®  Flexible Partials come with a lifetime warranty against breakage and fracture for the denture base under normal use. Valplast®  Flexible Partials can also be rebase and have teeth added to it if modifications are necessary over time.

 

Expense

If cost is your primary consideration, removable restorations are the more affortable solution, Valplast®  combines great value with excellent aesthetic that often rival the appearance of more expensive fixed restorations.
