Orthodontist in Central London

Orthodontry is first and foremost a measure to ensure proper oral hygiene and long term dental health; as such, orthodontics are a branch of medicine, not aesthetics. Straight teeth are easier to clean and care for than crooked teeth; reducing gaps and crevices decreases the likelihood of stuck food, plaque buildup, and bacteria growth. Orthodontry also aids in the proper functioning of the jaws, as a jaw that closes well will experience less wear and tear when eating and chewing. Proper tooth alignment leads to a cleaner, healthier, happier smile.

Aesthetic Braces

These appliances combine the effectiveness of traditional metal braces with the great advantage of a spotless look provided by clear brackets.
It might be the perfect choice if you are conscious about your appearance! They handle any of the problems that traditional fixed braces handle and are functionally the same. The only difference is that they are discreet, look smart and are not associated with childhood.

Invisalign Braces

Invisalign® is a brand of clear aligner. Clear aligners look like night guards used by athletes, but are made of super tough medical grade plastics. They are thin and personalized exactly for you and are thus nearly invisible when worn. You will receive new sets of aligners at each activation session, which will be 1-2 weeks. These transparent aligners will gently guide the teeth into a better position in which they align more with each other, until the final result is achieved.

Metal Braces

Fixed metal braces are the most frequently used orthodontic system. They are sometimes called traditional braces. Metal brackets might not give you the perfect appearance during your treatment, but these are the most efficient and cost-effective way to align your teeth with fixed braces, even if they are not the most aesthetic choice on the market today. It is the most widely used appliance to date, with great end results. This strong and reliable system can correct spacing, crowding, bite discrepancies or pull down teeth which have not erupted correctly or may be impacted.

Orthodontics For Children

As the jawbones and the face are still growing, orthodontic treatment for children can be very different from adult orthodontics. Early orthodontic treatment can start around the age of 6-7 and it has the potential to eliminate the need for more drastic treatment in the future. At this age, children have only milk teeth and their jawbone is constantly growing. Orthodontic devices are used to train children’s bones and muscles on their facial muscles. The orthodontist therefore may recommend removable devices and functional trainers for your child.
