If you have been living with wonky teeth for your entire life, it can be both daunting and a big relief when you finally decide to get something done about them.
A relief, because it means that at last, you will be able to stop worrying about what other people see, and what they feel about what they see, when you smile at them.
Daunting, because you are the start of a process that could go on for a year or more.
But, then again, it’s a process about which, as yet, you know very little, so no wonder you feel a bit scared. You are probably wondering what it will feel like to have braces on your teeth. Will your teeth ache? Will you get sore patches inside your cheeks? Will everyone think you look a complete idiot and take the mickey? Will you have to spend ages in the toilets at work trying to get trapped food out from behind the brackets and wires?
These are all valid questions and ones we can answer when you come to Ace Dental in Camden for your first consultation. You can tell us all about your fears and worries about going through the braces process, and we will also take a good look at your wonky teeth and be able to come up with some options regarding straightening devices.
If you were brought up in the UK, it’s likely that your teeth won’t be more than moderately out of alignment. This is because your childhood dentist would have picked up on any severe misalignment issues, particularly with regard to the way your jaws come together, and put you forward for treatment on the NHS.
This means that you will be able to take advantages of some great devices that were designed specifically with image-conscious adults in mind. They are far more discreet than the traditional metal bracket and wires braces you are probably imagining you are going to have to have.
When you come in for your consultation, we will be able to talk you through them and help you decide which one to go for.
