QUICK STRAIGHT TEETH
Quick Straight Teeth Braces
What is it?
Quick Straight Teeth Braces are used to correct mild misalignment of the front 6 to8 teeth, to give you a beautiful smile. Because we only move the front teeth, the force required is minimal. The wires exert mild pressure to move the teeth, without the need for severe tightening which can cause the discomfort noted inconventional orthodontic treatment.
At Barron Dental, Edinburgh, we can provide our patients with Quick Straight Teeth treatment. We will happily see you for a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION and FREE TEETH WHITENING after your Quick Straight Teeth treatment is completed!!
THE BENEFITS OF QUICK STRAIGHT TEETH (QST)
Due to low laboratory fees and quick treatment times, QST invisible braces are one of the most cost-effective systems available.
All QST Dentists only use 3M brackets. These have a proven track-record worldwide for their performance, beautiful aesthetics, and they are nearly invisible in the mouth. We also use tooth-coloured wires making our braces the most aesthetic when compared to similar systems.
Getting straight teeth, and a beautiful smile is fast! Treatments take anywhere between 4 and 24 weeks depending on complexity.
As with all Orthodontic treatments, Quick Straight Teeth will take a short space oftime for you to adjust to the clear brace. Quick Straight Teeth has developed a range of clear braces that reduce discomfort significantly. Our patients have only ever felt minimal discomfort for a couple of days, after which your mouth adjusts to the newness of the appliance. We have had no complaints about any major or long term discomfort.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT QUICK STRAIGHT TEETH
Am I suitable for Quick Straight Teeth treatment?
Patients who have a mild to moderate crowding or protrusion of their front teeth could well be suitable for treatment with Quick Straight Teeth. We are happy to see patients for a FREE consultation to see if they are suitable for Quick Straight Teeth treatment.
How much does QuickStraightTeeth™ cost?

We will be able to give you a quote for the cost of the treatment before you decide to go ahead with Quick Straight Teeth.
How often do I have to go see my Dentist once I begin my treatment?
This will depend on the products used during your treatment. On average patients visit their dentist every two to four weeks. You will be told exactly how often you need to attend after your first consultation with us.
How long does Quick Straight Teeth treatment take?
The total duration of treatment will depend on the complexity of the treatment. Our average treatment time is 1 – 6 months depending on complexity. You will be given an estimation of the total treatment time after a consultation with us.
Is Quick Straight Teeth painful?
Some patients may experience temporary, minor discomfort for the first few days at the beginning of each new stage of Quick Straight Teeth. This is completely normal for all orthodontic treatment and is actually a sign that the clear braces are working towards straightening your teeth! As your teeth gradually move, any slight discomfort typically goes after a few days. On rare occasions, patients may resort to a mild painkiller, used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Can I chew chewing gum while wearing aligners?
We advise against anything that may put stress on your teeth during treatment. Chewing gum will inevitably do this so we do advise that you remove your clear braces while chewing gum. Gum will stick to aligners and may affect your warranty.
Can I smoke during the treatment?
We strongly discourage smoking while wearing the aligners because it can stain or discolour your retainers, making them a lot less clear. However, although not recommended, you may smoke once the retainers have been removed from your mouth, but any damage caused to the appliance as a result of smoking will not be covered in your warranty.
Will the treatment affect my speech?
Most patients report little or no effect on their speech during the treatment. However, similar to traditional orthodontic braces, some patients find an initial adjustment period associated with having something new in your mouth. Many patients quickly adjust to this change.
What will I look like with the appliances in?
Appliances from Quick Straight Teeth are specifically designed to have minimal disruption to everyday life. The clear braces used have no bulky material. Your appearance will have minimal disruption. Previous patients have stated that they went through treatment without anyone noticing.
Will I need a retainer?
Yes you will. It is our belief that retention is for life! Teeth have a tendency to continually move throughout a lifetime, so the more we can do to prevent that, the better. We can provide all necessary retention as part of our all inclusive ‘Q’package, or individually for clients not taking up this option. Any patient not taking up this option will assume responsibility for the teeth drifting back to their original position.
