Many people are put off from getting Braces because they don’t want to wear an appliance that is embarrassingly visible when they open their mouths. But for patients at our practice in Harley Street, Invisible Braces are an option that can move the teeth into healthier positions while remaining much less eye-catching than traditional metal appliances.
A customised solution
Your treatment at Harley Street Dental Clinic will begin with a detailed consultation using modern dental imaging techniques. This information is used to custom-mould a series of clear plastic aligners that are precisely shaped to achieve the improvements you need. You will place a pair of these aligners over your teeth and wear them for around 2 weeks, before moving on to the next pair. Wearing these invisible braces in Harley Street, your teeth will be gently pressured to move into better positions over the course of your treatment. What’s more, the aligners can be removed when you eat or brush your teeth.
We use invisible braces to treat a range of conditions, from protruding front teeth to crowding. Many of our patients are professional adults and their Harley Street invisible braces have kept social embarrassment to a minimum because of the material’s transparency. After the treatment, their smiles look smarter and they enjoy a long-term reduction in the risk of oral health problems.
Braces improve health
With straighter teeth, there are fewer awkward spaces in the mouth that can be difficult to clean, so the risk of gum disease and tooth decay is lessened. A properly-aligned bite, with all the teeth pointing in the right direction, also means the jaw functions more efficiently, which reduces the risk of injury or strain.
A period of change for long-lasting results
Once you have finished your course of treatment with invisible braces, Harley Street dental professionals will give you a retainer to wear at night to get the teeth secured in their new positions. Treatment times can vary, typically between 6 to 18 months, depending on your situation. But once it’s over, the benefits will last for many years to come.
