In recent years, orthodontics have been gaining popularity among adults who wish to straighten their teeth and improve their bite. However, many adults are unwilling to endure the aesthetic effects of metal brackets and wires for several months or years. Luckily, modern dentistry is rapidly developing and you can now straighten your teeth with discreet orthodontic treatments without worrying about your smile.
At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we appreciate that some patients are self-conscious about their appearance. For this reason, we offer discreet orthodontic treatments such as lingual braces and Invisalign. This way you can straighten your teeth without anybody knowing that you are undergoing treatment. Our orthodontist in Harley Street will examine your teeth thoroughly and help you decide which treatment is better for you.
Lingual braces are fixed braces made of nickel-titanium that work just like regular braces, with the exception that they are placed behind the teeth, allowing you to smile confidently both during and after treatment. Lingual brackets are customised to fit each one of your individual teeth and respond to your unique orthodontic situation. Because they are specially designed for each patient, they are very comfortable. Lingual braces put pressure on the teeth just like regular braces to help them move into their right position over a specific period of time – usually the same time needed for regular metal braces. They are ideal for children, teenagers or adults with moderate or complex orthodontic problems. Your orthodontist in Harley Street can help you decide whether this is the right treatment for you.
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment designed primarily for moderate alignment and bite problems. Invisalign consists of a series of transparent, custom-made, removable, plastic aligners, which gradually move your teeth into their right position over a specific period of time.
Your orthodontist in Harley Street will provide you with a series of aligners and you will have to wear each for at least two weeks before moving to the next one in the series. Invisalign aligners are easy to handle, do not require frequent adjustments and can be removed for eating and tooth cleaning.
