Straightening your smile: how our dentist in Edgware can help

02 / 02 / 2023

As a local dentist in Edgware, we understand the importance of a straight, beautiful smile; not only is it a crucial aspect of overall oral health, but it can also have a significant impact on self-confidence.

At our dentist in Edgware, we offer a range of options for patients looking to straighten their teeth, each with its own set of unique benefits and considerations. In this blog post, we will be taking a closer look at the different methods available to help you achieve the straight smile you have been looking for.

Traditional braces

One of the most commonly used methods for straightening teeth is traditional metal braces. These braces use brackets and wires to apply pressure to the teeth, gradually shifting them into the desired positions.

Using a traditional brace is a tried-and-tested method for achieving a straight smile, and it can be effective for even the most severe cases of misalignment. Metal braces are also highly customisable, as the tension on the wires can be adjusted to suit the specific needs of each patient.

Clear aligners

For patients looking for a more subtle option, clear aligners may be a better choice. Clear aligners are custom-made, clear plastic trays that fit over the teeth. Like traditional braces, they apply pressure to the teeth to gradually shift them into the desired positions.

Clear aligners have several advantages over traditional braces. Because they are clear, clear aligners are much less noticeable than metal braces, and they are also removable, which makes eating and brushing teeth easier. Clear aligners typically require fewer visits to the dentist for adjustments, making them more convenient for busy patients.

However, clear aligners are not as suitable for severe cases of misalignment, and they require a high level of patient compliance, as they need to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day to be effective.

Invisalign

Another option that may interest patients looking for a discreet way to straighten their teeth is Invisalign. It is similar to clear aligners in that it uses clear, custom-made plastic trays to apply pressure to the teeth.

Invisalign offers several benefits over traditional braces or generic clear aligners. Invisalign aligners are highly discreet given their virtual invisibility. They are also highly customisable and can be tailored to suit the specific needs of each patient. They require fewer adjustment sessions, and can even be assessed remotely using a virtual consultation.

However, it is important to note that Invisalign is not suitable for all patients and may not work for severe cases of misalignment. As with clear aligners, Invisalign requires a high level of patient compliance to be effective.

Over to you

No matter which option you choose, it is important to work closely with our dentist in Edgware to find the right solution for your specific needs. At Manor Lodge, we offer a comprehensive consultation that will determine the method that is right for you. Whether you opt for traditional braces, clear aligners, or Invisalign, we will be there to support you throughout the entire process.
