If you think that you should just live with your wonky teeth because they aren’t that badly awry and getting them straightened would just be vain, you’ll be interested to know that you couldn’t be more wrong. Straight teeth are not only more pleasant to look at, they also do a much better job of chewing and can make it easier to talk clearly too. On top of both those advantages, straight teeth are also much more likely to last longer as, with fewer places for plaque to hide out and build up, they are less prone to decay and gum disease. Three very good reasons to be thinking about getting braces in Camden.
A wide range of braces in Camden
Here at Ace Dental, we stock a wide range of braces, so there is bound to be one that suits your lifestyle, your alignment problems and your budget.
As good as invisible, these clear aligners come in a series of mouth guard-style tooth trays, with carefully placed pressure points that nudge your teeth gradually into alignment. You wear a series of aligners, each one for about a week to 10 days, and over an average time of one year, your teeth straighten out. Removable for cleaning, these aligners don’t interfere with your food choices and allow you to keep teeth cleaning to within reasonable amounts of time.
These discreet braces take an average of only six months to do their work because they are designed to straighten out mild misalignments on the front six social teeth only. These, with only one root, are easier to move with gentler forces. This means that the brackets, which are made of transparent plastic, can be smaller. They are strung together with a finer wire, which is tooth-coloured. The full effect, while not invisible, is much more discreet than the train track braces of old.
The Inman Aligner
This device uses two aligner bows that are spring-loaded to create pressure. They go in front of and behind the front teeth and are used to correct any misalignments there. Treatment can take as little as six weeks.
