Braces don’t have to be made from metal these days. Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham offers a range of orthodontic treatments designed for adult patients. In some cases, treatment may not even require you to wear fixed braces at all.
Teeth straightening has many health benefits, no matter what your age. At our Farnham dental clinic we are keen to stress these benefits, and to point out that they aren’t purely aesthetic. Of course, we all dream of a beautifully-aligned smile, and improving the position of your teeth can of course boost your self-confidence.
But there are dental and general health benefits, too. Depending on your current orthodontic situation and the type and amount of correction needed, teeth straightening treatment can also:
- Reduce your chances of tooth decay, gum disease, and ultimately of tooth loss, by making your teeth easier to keep clean.
- Cut the risk of injury to protruding front teeth, which can be prone to accidental damage.
- Improve some cases of bruxism and associate head, ear, and shoulder pain by improving your bite.
- Improve your ability to eat a healthy diet, whilst reducing excessive wear on any particular area of your mouth.
Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham offers both conventional and faster orthodontics. When you come to the dental clinic for an orthodontic assessment, we will determine the best course of treatment to suit your individual needs.
If you think “conventional orthodontics” means obvious metal braces, think again. These are just one treatment option. Kostas Spathoulas, Specialist in Orthodontics at our Farnham dental clinic, will create an entirely customised treatment plan to suit your needs, which could involve:
Fitted to the rear surfaces of the teeth, lingual braces can treat a full spectrum of orthodontic conditions without anyone knowing you are having treatment.
This system of clear, removable aligners can treat a number of issues, including those affecting the bite, with maximum discretion.
Faster orthodontics are designed to work primarily on the front teeth, moving them quickly and subtly. Our Farnham clinic offers Cfast braces and the Inman Aligner.
