Many people choose us as their Harley Street orthodontist because their teeth have naturally grown into awkward positions. Good oral health is easier to maintain when your teeth are properly aligned and our range of modern techniques can bring satisfying results at a relatively quick pace, with dental appliances that are sometimes surprisingly discreet.
While teeth straightening is often traditionally associated with children, many adults are choosing to undergo treatment with us at Harley Street Dental Clinic to improve their wellbeing. As well as straighter teeth giving a neater appearance to the smile, they also make the mouth easier to keep clean because there are fewer spaces for food debris and plaque to hide in. Also, less strain is put on the jaw when biting and chewing with tidy teeth.
A range of modern techniques
For people seeking an orthodontist in Harley Street, we offer several treatments to achieve a range of solutions.
Invisalign braces are made of transparent plastic. Custom-moulded to guide your teeth into healthier positions, these braces can be removed during mealtimes and when cleaning the mouth.
Incognito braces are appliances made of very thin wires and brackets, which are attached to the backs of the teeth. They put pressure on the teeth to move them into better alignment and are much less visible than the traditional braces that are attached to the fronts of the teeth.
Porcelain braces also use a wire and bracket method, but because they are tooth-coloured, they are much more discreet, which has made them popular with our adult patients.
As your Harley Street orthodontist, we will build up a detailed picture of your dental situation before treatment begins, to make sure you end up with the most suitable solution. We’ll take images and impressions of your teeth to help us customise your treatment with precision. The teeth need time to be guided into their new positions and overall treatment times do vary from patient to patient. After the treatment, you’ll often need to wear a retainer to help the teeth settle in securely. Once these changes are made, you’ll enjoy a better looking smile, teeth that function more efficiently, and greater ease in achieving good oral health.
