Having crooked teeth is not just an aesthetic problem. If your teeth are misaligned, crowded or have large gaps then it can affect how you eat and speak as well as the overall health of your jaw. Excessive spacing between the teeth can undermine their stability and uneven teeth are generally harder to clean as there are more places for plaque to accumulate. This can cause gum inflammation, discomfort and eventually infection if left unresolved. At Orpington Dental Care, we fit braces in Orpington to realign your teeth, improve your appearance and enhance your health.
Solutions for all ages
Ideally, at our practice in Orpington, braces are fitted during childhood when there is still a mixture of baby and adult teeth. This means that the teeth can be realigned as the jaw is developing to avoid problems in the future. However, if you are an adult who has missed out on treatment then it is not too late. You may have considered corrective procedures but worried about traditional metal braces, which are often seen as uncomfortable, unsightly or inconvenient. Advances in technology mean that we are now able to offer our patients in Orpington braces which are more discreet, faster and more comfortable than before.
We are pleased to offer braces in Orpington which fit into your lifestyle. Invisalign is a system which uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are changed every two weeks to gently guide your teeth into place. The aligners are almost invisible and very comfortable, as they are made to fit your mouth exactly. They are removeable for eating and cleaning so are simple and do not interfere with everyday life. We also use clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, which are unobtrusive and work quickly to ensure that you get the results you want within months. In many cases, your new smile could be a reality within six months.
Having braces in Orpington has benefitted so many of our patients and we would like you to share their experiences. Give yourself the gift of a more attractive smile and a healthier mouth by contacting us today to discuss your options.
