Could orthodontics improve your smile and boost your confidence?

When you look in the mirror in the morning and see your teeth in your reflection, it should make you want to smile. If this is not happening then it is time for you to see if orthodontics in Harley Street could help you. Crooked, uneven or overlapping teeth can cause people to have low self-esteem and prevent them from feeling able to smile with confidence. This can seep into their social life sometimes and impact them negatively when it comes to being involved in things such as group photographs.

Crooked teeth can damage your health as well as your confidence

When people have crooked or overlapping teeth they often do not realise how it could be affecting their health as well. Even if you brush religiously twice a day and use mouthwash, if your teeth overlap there is a chance that there are a few spots that you just will not be able to reach. Plaque can build up here, and if you do not have your teeth straightened this could lead to more complicated problems later on, such as tooth decay or loss, and you could also experience things such as gingivitis.

Orthodontics in Harley Street can help you resolve these issues and prevent you from having to undergo more complex dental procedures later on in life. Your dental practitioner will do whatever they can to prevent further problems from arising, as prevention is just as important to us as providing resolutions.

What options are available to you?

Our treatments are both discreet and convenient so can fit around your lifestyle and leave you feeling elevated instead of self-conscious throughout your treatment.

Invisalign is a popular and modern way to straighten your teeth. With this treatment you will have a 3D scan taken of your mouth and the images this produces will be used to create a series of custom-made aligners. Made out of plastic and comfortable to wear over the top of your own teeth, this treatment is practically invisible to other people. The aligners are removable too which makes it convenient for you to take them out to eat and brush your teeth, meaning you do not need to worry about eating in public, as no food will be getting stuck in your appliance. You need to make sure that you are wearing your aligners for at least twenty-two hours of the day to ensure treatment works effectively.

If you do not mind the idea of having a fixed brace but want it to be out of sight, then lingual braces may be an option for you. These function in a similar way to traditional braces but attach to the insides of your teeth instead of the outer surfaces. The brackets are still metallic and connected with a metal wire, but they are hidden from view so nobody will even know that they are there.
