A beautiful smile can make all the difference when you need to enhance a first impression or lasting memory. In Harley Street, orthodontics can help you make the most of your smile. Maybe you have the kind of job that deals with the public, such as the media, modelling and the law. Maybe you want to brush up your smile for an important occasion, such as your wedding photographs.
In Harley Street, orthodontics polishes up the smile by focussing on the
development, prevention, and correction of irregularities of the teeth, bite and jaw.
What this means is that if you have crooked, misaligned or crowded teeth, orthodontics in Harley Street Dental Clinic can help you get your teeth back in order. Harley Street orthodontics can also help your children prevent their teeth from becoming misaligned in the first place.
Orthodontics also deals with more serious problems with the face and jaw that can lead to what we call malocclusion, which is abnormal alignment of the teeth and the way the upper and lower teeth fit together.
In Harley Street, orthodontics has a range of treatments to help correct misalignment and malocclusion.
Our various braces and aligners gently reposition the teeth. Our lingual braces are the same as traditional bracket and wire braces, except that they fit inside, or behind the teeth, rather than on the front, so that they are not at all obvious. We also fit braces that have tooth-coloured brackets and wires, so that they blend in with the mouth. Thirdly, we also offer a kind of braces that are not braces but clear plastic trays called aligners. These come in a series of slightly different trays that, one by one over a period of a few months, fit over the teeth to gently guide them into a new position.
Harley Street orthodontics works on the principle that the earlier a problem is detected, the sooner it can be put right. For this reason, we recommend that children should have an initial orthodontic assessment between the ages of seven and nine. However, it is never too late for orthodontics in Harley Street, and many adults come to us for corrective treatments and procedures.
