Can anyone get their teeth straightened?


It does not matter how old you are, or the condition of your teeth, your teeth can be straightened. In some cases, it will be more complicated than others, for example if you have a crowded jaw, then surgery may be necessary to remove excess teeth. If you have severely crooked teeth, then it may be necessary to have more treatment than most, and you may need several different forms of treatment to try and recalibrate the teeth. If you are looking to get teeth straightening in Wembley, then do not hesitate to contact us about your situation.


Fixed Braces


Fixed braces are probably the most common and recognisable braces and consist of metal fixtures that are glued to each tooth, and a metal wire that is passed through them and tightened. It is this method that is most commonly used on teenagers. This is because it is one of the most effective ways to correct teeth, and cannot be removed or altered, meaning that it is extremely reliable.


Some of the downsides to traditional fixed braces can be that they are quite obvious to anyone you meet, and they can also be uncomfortable when they are first fitted.


Invisalign


Invisalign braces are the solution to this, as they work to remove many of the issues that fixed braces face. If you are looking for teeth straightening in Wembley, but are concerned about fixed braces, then talk to us about our Invisalign treatment.


Invisalign braces are clear plastic braces that fit exactly over the teeth, making them almost completely invisible. Many adults can be averse to fixed braces, as they do not provide a professional look due to their association with teenagers. Therefore, if you are self-conscious about your braces, Invisalign is a fantastic option. Invisalign can also be freely removed, so you are free to eat and drink whatever you like, and can also maintain a perfectly dental hygiene regime, which can prove more tricky with fixed braces.


Invisalign braces are replaced every two weeks with a new one, that more closely resembles your straight teeth each time. This means that there is no tightening or any adjusting of the braces, so there is almost no discomfort with Invisalign, making them an extremely comfortable, discreet and popular choice.
