Orthodontics in Harley Street keeps pace with the latest advances and there have been plenty of those in the past couple of decades. At Harley Street Dental Clinic, our range of orthodontics in Harley Street treatment has something for everyone.
The basic choice is between either fixed braces or removable aligners, but there is plenty of each within each of those categories. Treatment starts with a thorough consultation. After we have been able to examine your teeth and worked out what needs to happen to align them, we can discuss the most suitable treatment options with you. Treatment also takes into account your budget and your lifestyle.
Wellbeing and looking good
Having straight teeth is good for your health. Even if your teeth are only mildly misaligned to start with, straightening them will provide health benefits. You will find it easier to keep straight teeth clean and plaque-free, which reduces your chances of getting gum disease or tooth decay.
Also, when the upper and lower jaws don’t fit together as they should, biting and chewing food can be problematic. You may also experience headaches and migraines and night-time grinding. Orthodontics in Harley Street can provide effective solutions to this.
What you can choose from
During your consultation, the dentist will explain each of the orthodontic devices, and help you choose the one most suitable for your needs. You may be offered some of the following:
These are fixed braces, but with a difference. Incognito braces go on backs (tongue-side) of the teeth rather than the front of the teeth. Tucking the brackets and wires away behind the teeth means that no one can see them as you go about your daily life.
The Invisalign has proved to be one of the most popular systems. There are no brackets and wires with Invisalign. Instead you receive a series of removable aligners made of 0.3mm clear plastic. You wear one after the other and the built-in pressure points gradually gently shift your teeth into alignment. The Invisalign aligners are taken out for eating and cleaning, which can make them more hassle-free too.
