Misaligned, crooked or protruding teeth are more common than many of us care to believe. With them comes a whole load of challenges that can affect the way someone lives their day-to-day life. If you find that you are suffering the negative effects of teeth that are misaligned, then you may have considered ways that could help change the alignment of your teeth.
Visiting our orthodontist Marylebone may be your starting point, as we have the knowledge required to assess your teeth and advise you about your options and the way to move forward with any treatment you may desire.
The engagement of adults
There is still a misconception amongst adults in the UK that tooth alignment treatment is just for teenagers; this simply is not true. In recent years, there have been large movements into developing and investing in treatments that are completely aimed at adults, allowing this age group to obtain the aligned teeth they are looking for and vastly improve their quality of life when it comes to their oral health and hygiene needs.
In recent years, more and more adults have decided to investigate the services being offered by our orthodontist Marylebone and have taken the plunge into treatment, as they wish to make a positive change to their oral health and hygiene as well as their overall quality of life.
Many of our patients are one hundred per cent satisfied with the results at the end of their treatment, as it allows them to lead a more comfortable life. Often patients will recommend the same treatment to other people they know to have similar issues to those they were experiencing, as they want others to enjoy the same benefits from treatment.
Modern treatments are not what you think
Another misconception that still presents in the minds of a lot of adults when they think about tooth alignment treatment is that their only option is the metal brace many of us may have seen as children. These braces can appear to be off-putting to many adults considering treatment. However, there are modern alignment treatments available that can provide a more discreet method for the delivery of treatment.
The need for an examination
If you decide that you wish to investigate the option of having your teeth aligned, then you need to have your teeth fully examined by our orthodontist Marylebone, as your needs will need to be assessed and a treatment plan that meets your aims will need to be drawn up. During this examination appointment, we will take scans and x-rays of your teeth; these will be used to aid the creation of any aligners that may be used within your treatment.
Your treatment will be fully explained to you, and different options may be presented to you with the benefits of each being outlined. It is important that you recognise the commitment that you will need to make to end up with the teeth you desire, as your treatment may last between 12 and 18 months.
