Adult Braces

Orthodontic Braces for Adults in London

Thanks to the latest advancements in orthodontic treatments, more people are starting to consider adult braces these days. We have successfully treated adult patients across all age groups, ranging from 18 to 64 years old.

Orthodontic braces for adults can have a great impact on improving your overall appearance and self-worth. This is ideal for people who have failed to wear braces during their childhood. Orthodontists have found that these clear retainers should be worn for at least 20 to 22 hours per day and that you should ideally only remove them when it is time for brushing, flossing, eating or drinking. Thus, adults who had braces as a child may find that their teeth have moved to their original position. Tooth alignment can be done at any age. You can always get back your gorgeous smile.

Having a straighter smile can create a big difference to your overall appearance. It will also help in improving the health of your teeth and gums. Crooked teeth may be the reason for tooth decay, wear of tooth enamel, jaw joint pain, headaches, gum disease and bone loss.

Invisible Orthodontic Braces

When choosing adult braces, many people think about the impact of wearing them in public.. Luckily, there are new orthodontic options available like invisible braces that are almost invisible to onlookers. Thus, no one will be able to properly see that you are wearing braces to straighten your teeth.

Short-term Orthodontic Braces

Short-term orthodontic treatments have gained popularity among adults in recent years. However, traditional orthodontic treatments require almost two years for correcting your oral complications.

These braces help to straighten your teeth within a few months by focusing only on your visible teeth when you smile. They are very discreet with tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets that have been designed to match with your other teeth.

Short-term orthodontics is not suitable for everyone, but if you want to correct your front teeth, then adult braces can provide a quicker and more affordable option to a comprehensive orthodontic treatment.

What are the benefits of wearing adult braces?

People usually link braces with having straighter teeth. The benefits do not end there. If you are having crooked teeth, then it is quite difficult to brush properly. Thus, straightening them will make it easier for you to reach those surfaces of the teeth and give them a thorough cleaning.

Who can wear adult orthodontic braces?

The right age to wear dental braces is usually between 10 and 14. However, braces are still effective at any age. According to studies, it has been found that 75% of adults have fitted wearing these braces, with two-thirds of those adults in the age group between 26 and 40.

Though some adults may fit them for health reasons, in many cases it has much more to do with the aesthetic look of their teeth and smile.

One condition for wearing adult braces is that your teeth are in good condition and you maintain good dental hygiene. If your teeth have been damaged due to decay, gum disease, or extensive restorative work like crowns, then you might not be able to perform all kinds of orthodontic treatments. In this case, you need to choose dental implants or veneers to improve the overall appearance of your teeth.

How long will adult orthodontic treatment take?

The treatment time will differ depending on the patient and their needs. Mild problems may sometimes take only a few months to treat. More complex problems can require almost two years. Usually, comprehensive orthodontic treatments require somewhere between 12 and 18 months. However, many adults prefer to make cosmetic improvements just to the front teeth that can be achieved within six months.

Your orthodontist can provide an overall idea of how long your treatment will take when you visit for a free consultation.
