Dentists in London SE1 tell patients how effective dental braces are at straightening teeth

30 / 08 / 2011

Having a set of straightened out teeth means not only that your smile will look better but it can also benefit the health of your mouth. By having teeth which are too impacted or close together, it can be more difficult to adequately clean between them and plaque can build up and lead to cavities. A set of misaligned teeth can also cause patients to grind their teeth during their sleep.

If your smile is crooked then it will be a good idea to get it straightened out one way or another. There are a variety of different treatments available from most United Kingdom dentists these days but the most effective is still the traditional metal brace. Other products might be more discreet, even removable and boast shorter average treatment times, but dental braces is the only way to solve all alignment issues, including teeth rotation, in one fell swoop.

The way that braces work are through a system of metal brackets and wires. The brackets are securely attached to the teeth before having wires threaded through them. The wires effectively allow the dentist, at regular appointments, to adjust the positioning of teeth by pulling and pushing into the right positions in the mouth.

Braces often have to be worn for about two years but most feel that it is a price worth paying so that they can have a nice, straightened smile for the rest of their lives. It is no trifling matter and people who have been treated with dental braces often report how much more confident they feel with their improved smile. Your London SE1 dentist can answer all of your questions about braces.
