We hear an awful lot these days about how easy and quick it is to straighten teeth, but that is only the case if it’s only the teeth that need straightening. Not all cases are simple. Sometimes at Harley Street Dental Clinic in Harley Street, orthodontics is much more complex.
One of the great things about being such a large practice, with so many dentists on hand, is that dentists from different disciplines can work together to help patients with a lot going on.
Our consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeons sometimes have to work with our orthodontic dentists, when not only the teeth need straightening, but the jawbones need moving too. In such cases, work is best carried out while the patient is still young enough, early teens, for their jawbones not to have set hard.
Not having jaws that bite together properly can create all sort of problems as times goes by. Teeth that are taking too much strain can crumble away. Tension on the muscles can lead to jaw problems, neck strain, headaches, and migraines.
Some teeth problems are simple to correct. Others are more complicated. Orthodontics in Harley Street offers solutions to every case, no matter how complex. And the braces required for complex solutions need not involve wearing heavy-duty metal braces that dominate the mouth and impair speech; not something any adult relishes.
Incognito lingual braces are a great way to deal with complex alignment issues, without the whole world knowing about them. Incognito braces can’t be seen by anyone because they fixed to the insides of the teeth, next to the tongue. Each bracket is custom-made from gold alloy to exactly fit each tooth, using measurements taken from digital scans. These braces work on the same principles as traditional braces and can be used to treat complex issues.
Naturally, complex alignment issues are going to take longer to resolve than simple ones, so the braces will have to be worn for longer, which is why Incognito is such a great solution.
