Crooked teeth are a source of concern for many people. You may be worrying about how you look, or experiencing pain or difficulties with eating or speaking. If this sounds like you, then Harley Street Dental Clinic can help with orthodontics in Harley Street. This is a particular service that focuses on how the teeth, jaws and face develop. Treatment is often carried out during childhood, when there is a mixture of baby and adult teeth. Every year over 200,000 children and teenagers in England and Wales have orthodontic treatment and make a long-term investment in their health and wellbeing. However, if you an adult who has missed out on corrective procedures as a child, you can still have work done now.
What are the benefits?
Straighter teeth look better, which improves your confidence. They are also healthier. Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to clean as there are fewer gaps in which plaque can accumulate. Correctly positioned teeth are also more stable as they are properly supported and less likely to move around in the mouth, get damaged or become loose. For our patients in Harley Street, orthodontics has also helped with discomfort form poorly positioned teeth, as well as issues around using the mouth normally. You may associate orthodontics in Harley Street with metal braces, but there is now a variety of different techniques available to suit your needs.
Options to suit everyone
We offer orthodontics in Harley Street for a range of issues, from resolving crowded or poorly spaced teeth to aligning upper or lower dental arches and correcting the bite of the teeth. A good bite allows the upper and lower jaws to meet and work together properly during eating. Happily, advances in dental technology have allowed us to provide faster, more comfortable treatment that is much less obtrusive. Modern braces make use of materials such as clear plastic in the form of aligners. We can also fit your braces behind your teeth where they are totally hidden. These lingual braces are the ultimate in invisible braces. Whichever technique you choose, you can have the smile you want without the inconvenience, discomfort and unsightliness of traditional methods.
