More and more patients are turning to the new generation of braces to straighten their teeth in their adult years. When you come to us at Cheltenham Dental Spa for braces in Cheltenham, we understand that what puts most people off having their teeth straightened is the thought of having to wear cumbersome metal braces for months or even years on end. But you don’t have to when you choose from our range of more discreet alternatives.
Discretion is an increasingly important aspect of braces in Cheltenham as increasing numbers of adult patients are searching for braces that do not take over their mouths.
At Cheltenham Dental Spa, we have collected together discreet treatments that feature both fixed and removable appliances. Both ways of straightening teeth have their own advantages. One may be better suited to your needs. You will need to come into our clinic for a consultation, so that we can thoroughly examine your teeth, jaws, bite and mouth in order to decide which system will provide the best treatment for you.
Not just cosmetic
Teeth straightening treatment goes into the category of cosmetic dentistry, because it is only available on the NHS for children with serious bite correction issues. However, the benefits of straighter teeth are not just aesthetic, there are definite health benefits too. Straighter teeth are likely to last longer because they are much easier to keep clean. Straight teeth have fewer hard-to-reach areas in which dental plaque can build up. This means that with regular visits to your dentist and hygienist, and good dental hygiene practices at home, you can reduce your risk of both gum disease and tooth decay.
More than four million people have used this system of clear, removable aligners that fit comfortably over the teeth to guide them into a new position. You change your aligners every week to 10 days, and can take them out to eat, drink, clean, and to brush your teeth.
Damon Clear Braces
Damon Clear braces are both more discreet and more comfortable than their metal counterparts. They use a passive slide mechanism to maintain arch wires within the bracket, enabling them to move freely, thus reducing friction and binding.
