Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean. They also make for a much more pleasant smile. When you choose to have braces in Cheltenham, you’re improving your oral health as well as your cosmetic appeal. At Cheltenham Dental Spa, we offer a variety of discreet and lightweight braces that are comfortable and user-friendly.
Braces in Cheltenham can help you to avoid the oral health problems associated with poorly-positioned teeth. When you have awkward spaces in the mouth that are tricky for the toothbrush to access, food particles and bacteria can build up to harmful levels. Bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease are given the chance to develop.
If you have a misaligned bite, you have to make extra effort to bite into and chew your food, putting your jaw at risk of strain.
As well as all this, if your teeth don’t look good, they can make you unhappy with your appearance. Our contemporary braces and aligners can significantly improve all of these problems without disrupting your day-to-day life.
Different types of braces in Cheltenham
The first part of your treatment is a conversation with our friendly team. We’ll assess your oral health while you tell us how you’d like to improve your dental positioning. We can then recommend the most appropriate processes.
You might benefit from clear braces like Invisalign. In this treatment, we’ll take 3D images of your teeth, and produce a series of transparent plastic aligners. You’ll wear a set of these aligners for 7-10 days, before moving on to the next one. After around 12-18 months, your teeth will have been gently pressured into improved positions. You can remove the aligners from your mouth when it’s time to brush your teeth or eat a meal.
Another type of braces in Cheltenham is known as Incognito. These braces are lightweight wires and brackets attached to the backs of your teeth. They’ll stay hidden while they do their work.
We also offer fixed braces in Cheltenham made of tooth-coloured and transparent materials. Six Month Smiles, for example, might be appropriate if you want to make relatively small adjustments to your front teeth.
