Your guide to straight teeth with braces
Getting orthodontics in Marylebone is understandably a nerve racking experience as you delve into the realm of the unknown. Thankfully, we are here to guide you through the process which due to modern dentistry, has become faster and more comfortable than ever before.
So we invite you to get excited about your journey to straighter, healthier and more beautiful teeth and look into the different options that may be available to you. There are several different treatments for orthodontics in Marylebone and the dentist at Boston Orthodontics will be able to explain to you the advantages and potential downsides of the different treatments that are on offer.
Traditional braces, the ones that consist of brackets that are glued to your teeth with wires connecting them, are still used frequently for those people who have somewhat complex cases.
If you are one of these people, know that fixed aligners have also had a modern makeover. They can now realign your teeth and jaw much faster than before and can consist of different materials, allowing them to be tooth coloured and difficult to see. There are even styles that can be attached to the back of your teeth, which can make them entirely invisible when you smile.
Fixed aligners are best for allowing our dentists to have maximum control over the realignment of your teeth. If you are looking for reliable, long-lasting results then you may be interested in one of these options.
Are there other styles available?
Growing in popularity are the vast range of clear, removable aligners that we can offer you. With outstanding results in a very short amount of time, these removable aligners provide you with a freedom that can be essential for teenagers and adults alike.
They do come with a catch. You do need to ensure that you wear your aligners for at least 20 hours every day in order to see the expected results. Some models have a way for you to monitor how long you are wearing your aligner for, great for parents watching over teenagers or for adults to be more aware of their behaviour and habits.
You are able to eat without wearing an aligner, meaning that you do not have to feel restricted in the foods that you choose to enjoy. Simply brush your teeth before replacing your clear tray to avoid bad breath, a build-up of bad bacteria and damaging debris left on your teeth.
Straightening your teeth does not need to be a burden. You no longer need to feel like you might be judged in the workplace or bullied at school. We have listened to your concerns and fears and worked hard at producing a quality product that delivers results without you feeling like you need to compromise during the journey to get there.
We believe that this provides you with a clear incentive to achieve the smile that you have always wanted to have. It is our aim as dental professionals to have every one of our patients enjoying a healthy and happy smile that can last them a lifetime.
