The benefits of braces for adult teeth straightening

Treatment with braces can be beneficial to patients of all ages. At Capital Dental in Twickenham we offer a number of teeth straightening treatments specifically designed for adults – many of which act far more quickly than traditional orthodontic appliances. Depending on the type and amount of correction you require, your dream of straighter teeth could be a reality in just a few months.

teeth-straightening-hamptonA lot of people, on hearing words such as “braces” or “orthodontics”, can only picture the fixed metal appliances favoured by teenagers. However, the orthodontic world has undergone something of a transformation in recent years, meaning that there are now a number of far more subtle options available to adults who want to improve the alignment of their teeth.

At our Twickenham dental practice, we understand the desire for a beautifully aligned smile can all too often be countered by the thought of wearing metal braces for months or even years on end. It’s not hard to see why such appliances are not compatible with a professional adult lifestyle.

When you come for an orthodontic consultation at Capital Dental in Twickenham, we will perform a thorough clinical examination to ascertain the type and amount of correction required. We will then talk you through the pros and cons of all appropriate treatments, so that you can be confident in the choice you make, and will know exactly what to expect.

We offer both fixed braces and removable aligners for adult teeth straightening at our Twickenham dental practice. Each have their merits and are more suited to certain clinical situations.

One of the major benefits of braces is that they give your dentist or orthodontist maximum control over the movement of each tooth.

Among the brace systems on offer at Capital Dental, Twickenham, are:

FastBraces

These braces are unique because they move the roots and crowns of the teeth together for significantly shortened treatment times. We offer tooth-coloured FastBraces designed to blend into your mouth.

Cfast

Cfast cosmetic braces work in as little as five months, because they focus on the teeth in your smile line. Comprising clear and tooth-coloured components, they are not immediately noticeable.
