Are you tired of having crooked teeth or an overbite? You are never too old to achieve a great smile with orthodontics. Crooked and misaligned teeth can affect more than just your smile. They can hinder your ability to chew properly, make brushing and flossing a challenge and put unnecessary strain on your jawbone.
At Harley Street Dental Clinic in Harley Street we offer comprehensive orthodontic care for people of all ages, in a relaxed and comfortable environment. We specialise in discreet teeth straightening methods such as Invisalign and lingual braces and we do what we can to make your time in treatment as comfortable as we can. If it’s been some time since you looked into orthodontics, you’ll be surprised at how easy and fast modern braces are compared to conventional braces.
What can Harley Street orthodontics do for you?
Straight teeth facilitate chewing and reduce the risk of plaque build-up, which could lead to decay and gum disease. Furthermore, misaligned bites can accelerate tooth wear and strain the jawbone, increasing the risk of breaking a tooth. At Harley Street Dental Clinic, each orthodontic treatment has its own benefits.
Our dentists have the knowledge to recommend the most suitable treatment based on the state of your teeth and jaw, your needs and your lifestyle. We always aim to take into account your expectations regarding treatment times. Harley Street orthodontics are ideal for adults who do not want a mouth full of metal braces.
Invisalign clear aligners
Invisalign is one of the most comfortable, convenient, and discreet methods of straightening your teeth. Invisalign consists of a series of custom-made, invisible, removable aligners to gradually shift your teeth into the right position. Unless your dentist recommends otherwise, the aligners should be changed every two weeks and have to be worn at least 22 hours a day. However, they can be removed to eat and clean your teeth.
Lingual invisible braces
Lingual braces are metal braces attached to the inside surfaces of the teeth that face the tongue. They work just like traditional braces applying pressure to the teeth in order to move them to their right position. Lingual braces are almost invisible and unlike Invisalign, they can treat more serious types of tooth misalignment.
