Do you have misaligned, crooked, crowded or overly spaced teeth? You may wish that your smile was straighter or even be experiencing problems with eating or speaking. If your top and bottom jaws are very out of place, you may have what is referred to as a bad bite. This can cause issues with your teeth and gums or the joints and muscles in your face. Some people clench their jaws or grind their teeth which can cause pain, problems with biting or chewing or headaches. At Orpington Dental Care, we can fit braces in Orpington to help you.
If you are looking for tooth realignment in Orpington, braces offer a range of solutions. Thanks to advances in techniques, you are no longer limited to unsightly metal’train track’ braces, which can be uncomfortable and time consuming. Clear plastic aligners, removable clear wire aligners or the use of clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires mean that treatment is more discreet, comfortable and effective than ever before. If you are an adult who missed out on teeth straightening treatment as a child, it is not too late to experience the pleasure of having straighter teeth. Many procedures are very fast and you could have the smile of your dreams in as little as 6 months.
Having correctly placed teeth improves your appearance and can contribute to enhanced self-esteem, as you feel better and more confident about how you look. It can also improve the health of your mouth. Straighter teeth are easier to clean as there are fewer gaps for plaque to accumulate in. In addition, if your teeth are properly aligned, they are more stable. This decreases the chances of other teeth moving into the wrong place or even becoming loose. This ensures that you can use your teeth properly and enjoy a full range of food for a lifetime. Having braces in Orpington is a long-term investment in your health and wellbeing.
For our patients in Orpington, braces offer a great way to improve your oral health and the way you look. Do get in touch with our experienced team to discuss your options.
