If you have misaligned teeth, it may be affecting your self-esteem. Not only that, but misaligned teeth could also be affecting the way you chew your food or be causing you jaw pain or speech difficulties. Cleaning your teeth may also be more difficult if your teeth are crossed over each other, for example. By realigning your smile, you will not only have an improved appearance, but you should also find that you are able to rectify other problems caused by the alignment issues. Seeking treatment from an orthodontist Marylebone is a great way to get a broad range of treatment options and to be able to find the treatment that suits you best. Here at Orthodontist London, we have a multitude of treatment options to help you get a smile that will look wonderful and function fabulously!
Clear or ceramic braces and lingual braces
If you require fixed braces, there are a number of ways you can have wires and brackets in your mouth. Firstly, we offer fixed braces that are attached to the fronts of your teeth, but they are more discreet as the brackets are clear and therefore aren’t noticeable. The wires are also clear coloured. Ceramic braces can similarly be made tooth-coloured, so they should also be discreet and still perform efficiently as a treatment for your alignment issues.
With lingual braces, this consists of brackets and wires that are attached to the backs of your teeth, so nobody will be able to see them at all. We use 3D digital CADCAM technology to enable us to make the brackets fit your teeth perfectly and from this we can generate a digital plan of where your teeth will move to at each step of your treatment plan. By having the brackets on the back of your teeth, it also provides additional comfort as you won’t need to worry about your lips rubbing on the brackets. We also make them from gold alloy, which will reduce any effects of nickel allergies. We use the Incognito Lingual bracket system and are accredited providers of this treatment.
Another alternative treatment for mild to moderate issues such as gapped or crowded teeth, crossbite, or under or overbites is Invisalign. An orthodontist Marylebone may offer this as an alternative to fixed braces. Invisalign consists of transparent plastic aligners that are worn over the teeth like a gumshield and may be removed for up to 2 hours a day. The aligners apply pressure to the teeth to gradually move them into the desired position. They are made bespoke to fit your mouth using iTero technology - a digital scan from which we can also generate a 3D animation of how your teeth will look after treatment has been completed, before treatment has even started. By being able to remove your aligners, you can take them out to eat and drink, so you won’t need to change your diet. You will also be able to remove them for brushing and flossing to allow you to maintain excellent oral hygiene - just remember to have your routine dental check ups too!
