Even thinking about Teeth-straightening treatment seems pointless if you are convinced that traditional metal braces are the only option. Although these sorts of braces are designed to solve crooked teeth or cross-bites, certain patients may not be able to even consider wearing metal braces as an adult. This is why orthodontics in Harley Street comes with different treatments to suit individual patients.
In Harley Street, orthodontics is dedicated to straightening teeth and relieving you of the struggles and discomforts that can come with crooked teeth and cross-bites. It is important to know that straighter teeth are healthier teeth and at Harley Street Dental Clinic, we want to give you the healthy smile that everyone deserves to flaunt. If the gaps between your teeth are closed in, it means there is fewer places for plaque to build up and cause further complications. If you once had trouble biting and chewing on your favourite foods, teeth-straightening treatments work to align your bite.
Orthodontics in Harley Street
We have a range of treatments at Harley Street Clinic and there is at least one for the severity of your case and your lifestyle needs. If discretion is what you are looking for in a teeth-straightening treatment then you might like the sound of lingual braces and Invisalign.
Firstly, lingual braces are fairly similar to traditional braces. Brackets are placed onto each tooth and wire runs through them, serving to gradually shift the teeth to their correct positions at the end of treatment. They sound like metal braces, with the only difference being their invisibility. They are different because they are placed on the back of your teeth, making it almost impossible for anyone, including you, to see them.
As for Invisalign, this a treatment that is both clear and flexible. This is a series of clear aligners, given to you to switch over every 7-10 days. With every set, your teeth are gently being shifted until they reach their desired positions. The aligners are not fixed so you can remove them when you brush and floss your teeth.
The journey towards a straighter and enhanced smile should be exciting and the discreet options of orthodontics in Harley Street make it all the more appealing.
