Braces London

 Are you concerned about the appearance of your smilbraces londone?

Do you try to avoid being photographed?  Many people suffer in silence over dental problems caused by crooked or missing teeth but it is never too late to perfect your smile.

In recent years there has been a huge increase in adults seeking orthodontic treatment to improve their smile and help them look and feel better.

While new dental techniques such as Invisalign allow people to undergo more subtle orthodontic treatment, traditional fixed braces are still the most popular choice.

Fixed braces work by having metal brackets attached to the teeth with glue before a wire is threaded through them and gradually tightened over a number of months, moving the teeth until they are aligned.

The reason fixed braces remain the most common method of straightening teeth is that it remains the cheapest and quickest option available – with an average treatment time of 12 months.

For those who want their braces to be as discreet as possible, we also provide ‘clear’ braces which are made of tooth-coloured ceramic material and are much less visible.

There really has never been a better time to achieve the smile you have always wanted.

Are braces in London the right option for you?

There are many reasons why you might need or choose to have braces, but not every type of brace will be right for you, so it’s important that you do your research before making any decisions.

More often than not, patients will come to us for braces if they’re suffering from any of the following common dental issues:

  • Misaligned teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Underbite or overbite

Depending on the nature of your issue and its severity, your dentist may advise a certain type of brace or orthodontic solution, and some options may not be suitable for you if you’re suffering from a particular type of issue.

Here at Ravenscourt Dental, we offer traditional braces, ideal for more severe cases of misalignment as well as more discreet options including Invisalign.

If you’re unsure whether braces are the right option for you, or to get a clearer idea of what sort of braces you’re eligible for – feel free to get in touch with our team to arrange an initial consultation.

This depends on how much your teeth need adjusting.

There is a wide range of benefits to both fixed and removable braces but knowing which is the right option for you is entirely personal. Fixed braces can offer a few unique advantages that removable braces can’t, and if you need complex correction, braces may be the better choice. Other benefits include:
  • Impossible to lose as they are fixed to your teeth
  • Closer monitoring by your dentist during regular appointments
  • Proven effectiveness
  • There are customisable options

No. Whilst it’s normal to feel some mild pain and discomfort during the first few days after having your braces fitted, they shouldn’t cause you any issues afterwards. The reason they can cause discomfort initially is that they’re putting pressure on the teeth to slowly move them into a new position, but this can be combatted with regular painkillers.
Contrary to popular belief, there is no ‘perfect’ age for braces, and adults can benefit just the same as children and teens. They are most commonly offered during early adolescence, but orthodontic treatments like braces have become increasingly popular with adults looking to correct their smile.
