The human body is composed of many different parts. In order to stay healthy, it is important that we look after and take proper care of all of these parts. While all parts of the body are important in their own way, it is often easy to neglect one or two areas when thinking about ‘staying healthy.’ Indeed, people tend to think of their weight and/or muscle mass when thinking about what being healthy means.
Because of this, some of the smaller areas of the body such as the teeth, will often get forgotten about. For example, while many of us know about the importance of brushing our teeth twice a day and limiting our intake of sugary foods to help our mouths stay clean and healthy, many of us know less about the world of dental treatments, and how they can be used to improve our oral health.
For example, there are a good number of treatments available from Mary Lo which can really improve the strength of a patient’s teeth, one of which being braces in Marylebone.

Invisalign and retainers
Invisalign is a popular and modern treatment that is used to realign crooked or out of place teeth into a more favourable position. What makes this treatment so interesting and popular is that it uses a set of clear, practically invisible aligners to achieve its results. Each individual aligner in the set helps to shift the teeth over to a more favourable position, and they can easily be taken off for eating and drinking.
Retainers are used to prevent “orthodontic relapse.” This is the teeth’s natural tendency to move back into their original position after finishing a period of wearing braces. Retainers are usually applied quickly after a period of wearing braces in order to prevent this. They also come with an individual retention plan, which is tailored individually for each patient. The individual plan will usually consist of either retainers or fixed wires (and sometimes both).
