Braces were once the domain of teenagers but have now become popular amongst adults who want straighter and healthier teeth. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but the principal reason we would all like straight teeth is to make us look and feel our best while restoring our confidence and self-esteem. As our dentists at Harley Street Dental Clinic will tell you, straight teeth are not just a matter of aesthetics but of your overall health too.
To achieve this dream smile we can offer various choices of braces to fit your lifestyle. An increasingly popular choice is clear braces in Harley Street. Whether you have gaps in your teeth or crooked or overcrowded teeth, our specialist dentists can transform your smile using clear braces in Harley Street.
Problems of misaligned teeth
Properly aligned teeth will function and wear better over your lifetime. If you suffer with alignment issues you will probably also have a poor bite and your teeth will suffer from elevated levels of stress, which can affect their lifespan. We can all expect a certain amount of wear to our teeth over our lifetime, but premature wear is exacerbated by poorly aligned teeth and can be easily corrected with clear braces in Harley Street.
Misaligned teeth are also more difficult to keep clean than straight teeth. With correctly aligned and spaced teeth, your toothbrush can easily reach all the surfaces of enamel and your gums.
Not only are misaligned teeth hard to keep clean, but the chances of contracting gum disease increase. If left untreated, it can affect both bone and gum tissues and lead to loss of teeth. If it becomes a chronic condition, it can lead to other serious health issues such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
Harley Street Dental Clinic adult braces
Adult braces are now nearly invisible and come in different forms: fixed and removable. Fixed braces can be attached to the back of the teeth, where they remain unseen for the duration of your treatment. Clear braces in Harley Street fit snugly over your teeth and can be removed while you eat and clean your teeth. They are comfortable to wear and give you an aesthetically pleasing smile and a healthy mouth in no time at all.
