Orthodontics in Marylebone
The importance of orthodontics
Orthodontics in Marylebone is the field of dentistry which involves straightening your teeth to help improve the aesthetics of your smile and to deal with any alignment issues and bite disorders to help improve your overall oral health at the same time. Orthodontics in Marylebone uses dental braces to help treat misalignment issues, crookedness, wonky teeth, protruding teeth, gaps in the teeth or overcrowding of your teeth. These issues not only affect the aesthetics of your smile, which can have detrimental effect on your self-confidence and other aspects of your life, but these issues can also reduce how effectively you are able to clean your teeth, making it difficult to maintain those hard-to-reach areas where the tooth surface may not be exposed properly because of crookedness or other issues and therefore allowing the buildup of plaque, the formation of tartar and resulting in many dental issues and complications in the future. Addressing these issues with orthodontics in Marylebone will help you smile more beautifully and keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy.

To make sure that you have good oral health and that orthodontics is the right choice for you, your dentist will carry out a full examination of your mouth to ensure that your teeth are strong and that there are no dental issues present which may be exacerbated by orthodontic treatment or may affect the treatment procedure itself. If your dentist is happy that you are eligible for Orthodontics in Marylebone then x-rays and specialised three-dimensional scans can be carried out of your mouth to show you an accurate prediction of what to successful treatment may be able to do for the aesthetics of your smile and will help the dentist suggest treatment options which will be tailored to your specific needs and requirements.
Orthodontics in Marylebone have developed significantly over the last few decades and there are now many types of braces available which are involved in straightening your teeth. Traditional metal braces use wires and brackets which are directly attached to your teeth and allow the position of the teeth to be moved gently as required. This is the most effective type of orthodontic treatment and can be commonly seen in teenagers.
Adults who have not undergone conventional orthodontics using metal braces as a teenager have a tendency to be reluctant to the high visibility of this treatment method. This has led to advances in cosmetic dentistry, and there are now many different forms of invisible braces as an alternative to metal braces which allows you to improve the aesthetics of your teeth at your convenience and discretion.
