When considering braces, you may associate them with kids. It´s true that many kids get braces to make sure their teeth are straight and aligned for later life. However, more and more adults are choosing to get braces.
Part of the reason for this is because new treatments make having braces an easier undertaking than in the past. You can now straighten your teeth without the visual impact of traditional ´train track´ braces.
Here at Ace Dental in Camden, we can provide a wide range of treatments for teeth straightening. If you´re looking for braces in Camden, you can expect to find a treatment to suit you, from fixed braces to removable appliances.
Types of braces in Camden
One type of braces in Camden is fixed appliances. These types of braces are permanently fitted onto your teeth for the duration of your treatment. You will usually return for adjustments that gradually pull the teeth into alignment. Most of these appliances differ from the braces of old because they utilise more modern materials, making them less conspicuous and more comfortable than ever. By focusing on realigning the teeth alone, and not the jaw, treatment times are often shorter than before too.
Another type of treatment we offer are removable appliances. These types of treatment are, as the name suggests, removable. This means you can take them out to brush or floss your teeth and at mealtimes. Treatments like Invisalign are some of the least conspicuous and easiest to fit your lifestyle around.
Invisalign treatment involves wearing a series of custom-moulded clear plastic trays that are each slightly different in shape, moving your teeth gently over time.
Benefits of straighter teeth
The visual aspects of straighter teeth can bring big bonuses to your emotional wellbeing, as you sport a confident smile. But straighter teeth can also be healthier as they are easier to clean, reducing the chances of plaque and tartar building up, which ultimately reduces the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Gum disease in particular is linked to increased risks of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. So investing in straighter teeth truly is an investment in your overall wellbeing and health.Back to Blog
