What are the pros and cons of braces? South East London dentists have all the answers

25 / 05 / 2011

Every time you smile you have the potential to put people at ease with a comforting gesture. It is such a part of every day life that it is easy to take for granted just how important smiling is. The sad fact is that some people don’t smile nearly enough because they are worried about the way that their teeth look. If you are one of these people then there is no reason why you should not contact your South East London dentist to find out what can be done.

Teeth come in all different shapes and sizes and the way that they are arranged can also vary, to a point. It is perfectly common to be born with teeth which develop in a fashion that is crooked or misaligned. The act of thumb sucking can also push teeth out of line.

The best way to sort this out and leave you with a healthy looking and beautiful smile is to get your mouth fitted with braces. There have been many innovations in the technology of straightening teeth in recent years but none of them can consummately and effectively deal with all of the possible imperfections when it comes to the arrangements of your teeth.

In a sense braces are really rather simple. They work by gently moving your teeth over time, utilising the power of strong, metal wires which are attached securely to brackets on your teeth. The treatment times can be rather long, with some patients needing to wear braces for several years, but the results are long lasting and have produced satisfaction in millions of people over the years
