If you think braces have to equate obvious metal appliances, it’s time to think again. At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham we offer a number of subtler ways to straighten your teeth. This may involve the use of fixed appliances – braces – or removable ones – aligners.Many adults still picture traditional metal appliances, possibly even involving head gear, when they hear the word “braces”. Such appliances remain popular with children and teenagers, but it doesn’t take a genius to work out that they can be viewed as incompatible with a busy professional adult lifestyle.
At our Farnham dental clinic, we believe everyone deserves a smile to be proud of, and we know that straighter teeth is pretty high up on the wish list of many adults considering cosmetic dental treatment. That’s why we are pleased to offer a number of discreet options for anyone interested in teeth straightening.
It should not be forgotten that teeth straightening also has benefits for your dental and general health. By reducing the gaps in which food particles can get trapped and plaque bacteria can build up, you’ll reduce your risk of dental decay and gum disease (so long as you visit your dentist and hygienist regularly, of course).
Gum disease has been linked to conditions including heart disease and strokes by numerous studies, so teeth straightening can benefit your overall health too.
