Consider orthodontics in London and allow our experts at The London Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry to straighten out your smile, lift your self-esteem and change your life for the better.
Reasons for orthodontics in London?
Orthodontics is an area of dentistry concerned solely with correcting the bite and position of healthy teeth.
Patients who need orthodontic dentistry include those living with malocclusions (bad bites) such as:
- Crowding – when teeth grow incorrectly, it can lead to an overcrowded mouth.
- Incorrect spacing – the spacing between the teeth can be uneven.
- Tooth rotation – if left untreated, teeth can grow through twisted or rotated, ruining the symmetry of the smile and interrupting the bite.
- Crossbite and retrognathia – commonly referred to as an underbite or overbite. If the upper teeth fit inside the lower teeth, the lower jaw overlaps them, causing an underbite. Likewise, if the lower teeth fit inside the upper teeth, the upper jaw can overlap, causing an overbite.
- Open bite – anterior open bites occur when the back teeth are together, but the front top and bottom teeth do not overlap. Posterior open bites occur when the front teeth meet but the back teeth do not.
If you are living with any of these bite complications, it is essential that you visit an orthodontist in London to correct them. If you don’t do so, the health of your teeth and the jaw’s structure can be compromised and slowly decline – worsening your smile as the years go on.
Benefits of orthodontic treatments
If you’ve been identified as having one (or more) of the above-mentioned dental problems and don’t seek out treatment, there can be consequences ranging from cavities to jaw pain and trouble eating.
Orthodontics in London can correct these issues and help prevent further, more serious ones from arising.
We recommend undergoing treatment as soon as possible to stop problems from getting worse.
Orthodontic treatment can have positive effects on a patient’s self-esteem too. By creating and maintain a healthy smile, it’s likely you’ll feel more confident in social settings.
It can also irradicate the causes of difficulty with swallowing and talking, as well as reducing jaw pain associated with an overbite.
For the ultimate in secret straightening, consider an aligner treatment.
With a series of bespoke clear aligners, the patient’s teeth are gradually moved into a straighter position, without the sensation of metal wires and brackets.
Like traditional and CFast braces, lingual braces use brackets and wires to apply mild pressure to the teeth and gums, realigning the smile.
However, unlike these systems, lingual braces are applied at the back of the teeth (on the areas you can touch with your tongue), providing a more discreet option for patients who can’t use aligners and require traditional braces.
CFast, Cosmetically Focused Adult Straight Teeth, is a cosmetic tooth alignment system that uses clear orthodontic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires that blend in with the teeth.
Designed to correct the appearance of the social six (the front 6 teeth seen when you smile and talk), CFast brackets and wires use gentle pressure and adjustments every 3-4 weeks to align your teeth into the right position.
Although traditionally associated with the teenage years, adult braces are designed to correct the alignment of the teeth and improve the appearance of the smile, with removable or fixed braces!
How long alignment correction will take depends on the patient’s current smile and the orthodontic system chosen – all of which will be discussed at your consultation, where a bespoke treatment plan is generated for you.
