Using discreet braces to straighten adults’ teeth

Modern braces don’t have to be made from metal, and in some cases orthodontic treatment needn’t mean wearing a fixed brace at all. Ace Dental in Camden offers a number of discreet teeth straightening options, designed for adults who would like to enjoy the benefits of straighter without having to wear obvious metal braces.

Orthodontic treatment is often wrongly thought of as only being for children or teenagers. In fact, the benefits of straighter teeth can be enjoyed at any stage in life. Ace Dental in Camden welcomes adult orthodontic patients who either missed out on having braces in their younger days or had treatment only for their teeth to move back to their original position.

Our Camden dental practice uses both fixed braces and clear, removable aligners to move adults’ teeth. The benefits of orthodontic treatment are more than just aesthetic; whilst it may be concerns about your smile’s appearance that initially bring you to our Camden dental centre for teeth straightening consultation, there are numerous health benefits to be gained, too.

To put it simply, straighter teeth are healthier teeth. Improving tooth alignment reduces the hard-to-clean areas where plaque can build up. So long as you practise good dental hygiene and visit your dentist and hygienist regularly, using braces or aligners to straighten your teeth can reduce your chances of both gum disease and tooth decay.

Studies have linked gum disease to a number of general health conditions, including heart and lung disease, premature labour and low birth weight in babies whose mother has the condition.

Camden braces and aligners

When you come to Ace Dental in Camden for a teeth straightening consultation, your dentist will conduct a thorough clinical examination to ascertain the best way to treat you. If you have a preference for braces or aligners, please let your clinician know; we always do our best to accommodate patients’ wishes at our Camden clinic, although the best option for your clinical situation will always be used.

Among the options are lingual braces, which are attached to the rear surfaces of the teeth, tooth-coloured braces, and various removable aligners.
