Fixed braces for teeth straightening with our orthodontist

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth and are looking for teeth-straightening options, you need to speak to our orthodontist Marylebone and find out about the different types of braces that are available to meet your individual dental requirements and your personal preferences. As you may be aware, orthodontics has advanced significantly in the last few decades. If you have been thinking about straightening your teeth you will have found that there are many different types of braces available. Our orthodontist Marylebone will be able to help you make an informed decision and choose the right type of braces for you.

To begin with you will need to undergo a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. This includes a visual assessment and diagnostic imaging in the form of X-rays and three-dimensional scans of your mouth to put together a digital image of your teeth and jaw. This will help our orthodontist Marylebone detect any underlying dental health complications which may need to be addressed before straightening your teeth. If we believe it is safe to straighten your teeth then we can discuss the different options with you.

Fixed braces for complex orthodontic needs

Some patients have complex orthodontic needs whilst others have mild or moderate dental needs. Some patients have undergone orthodontic treatment previously and are simply looking to perfect their smile. Our orthodontist Mary Lo will find out what you are looking for to help make the right choice for you. We will also take into consideration your budget as different types of braces are priced differently and we will talk to you about our payment plans so that your options are not restricted.

Traditional braces

If you suffer from complex orthodontic issues our orthodontist is able to recommend a range of fixed braces to meet your dental needs. Fixed braces are highly effective for complex dental needs, because they apply constant pressure to your teeth. There are different types of fixed braces to meet your personal preferences. We can offer you traditional metal braces, which are ideal for teenagers. They work using metal brackets and wires that are fixed to the front surface of your teeth. You will visit our orthodontist on a regular basis to make sure that the process is coming along successfully and also to tighten the components at regular intervals so that the braces continue to apply pressure to your teeth.

Discreet braces

If you are worried about drawing attention to your mouth then you can opt for a more discreet type of fixed braces. Clear braces work in the same way as traditional fixed braces, however the components are either clear or tooth coloured, therefore significantly more discreet. If you are looking for further discretion then you can have fixed braces attached to the back surface of your teeth so that they cannot be detected from the outside of your mouth. These are known as Incognito or lingual braces.
