Have you always wanted straighter teeth? If you’ve been putting off orthodontic treatment because you don’t want to go through the embarrassment or inconvenience of getting braces, it’s time to take a second look. Advancements in dental technology mean that treatment is now faster and more discreet than ever before.
Why get orthodontic treatment?
Do you cover your mouth when you speak or avoid smiling in photographs? People who are self-conscious about their teeth typically suffer from low self-confidence, which can negatively impact everything from career progression to romantic prospects. Many of our patients find that straightening their teeth significantly boosts their emotional well-being.
Having straight teeth isn’t just a cosmetic advantage – it’s also better for your oral health. Crooked teeth are more challenging to keep clean because overlapping areas can be difficult to reach when brushing and flossing. This can lead to more serious issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. Misaligned teeth can also interfere with a healthy bite, causing excessive wear and tear, jaw problems, and chipped teeth.
What treatments are available?
Here at Chiswick Park Dental & Facial we offer several adult orthodontic options, including:
Invisalign: A completely bespoke, invisible straightening system that fits over your teeth to gently move them to the correct position. You wear the aligners for 22 hours a day, removing them to eat and brush your teeth. Many adult patients love the flexibility that Invisalign offers, since there are no dietary restrictions and the aligners can be removed for special occasions.
Damon braces: The use of clear rather than metal brackets make Damon braces less obtrusive than traditional fixed braces. They also use a slide mechanism to connect the wire to the bracket, which allows them to move more naturally as teeth align – a faster and more comfortable way to straighten teeth.
Which treatment is best for me?
Your dentist will be able to recommend the best type of orthodontic treatment for you based on your individual requirements and circumstances. We will be happy to carry out a full assessment and discuss your treatment options during an initial consultation, after which we can put together a personalised treatment plan. Whichever option you choose, our expert team will make sure you have a smile to be proud of.
