These days, braces don’t have to mean obvious metal appliances, and orthodontics doesn’t always have to involve fixed braces at all. At Sutton Coldfield clinic Sutton Dental & Implant Clinic, we are passionate about helping patients achieve the smile they’ve always wanted, and offer a range of discreet tooth straightening solutions for adults interested in orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontics can be beneficial for patients of all ages. We don’t just mean aesthetically, either – although a beautifully aligned smile can boost your self-confidence, and with it improve your relationships with others in both the personal and professional sphere. At our Sutton Coldfield dental clinic we are also keen to stress the health benefits of straighter teeth.
Depending on your clinical situation at the start of treatment, these benefits include:
- Making your teeth easier to keep clean by reducing gaps where dental plaque can accumulate, teeth straightening with braces or aligners can improve your oral health.
- Gum disease has been linked to a number of general health conditions, including heart disease and strokes. Thus, by improving your dental health, your whole body can benefit.
- Protruding front teeth are more at risk of accidental damage; orthodontic treatment can help to protect them.
- Issues with your bite can affect your diet, and sometimes cause night-time tooth grinding (bruxism).
At Sutton Dental & Implant Clinic in Sutton Coldfield, we offer both fixed braces and removable aligners to improve the alignment of your teeth. Each system has its merits, and the pros and cons of all appropriate treatments will be discussed by your dentist during your initial orthodontic consultation.
Six Month Smiles
A popular choice at our Sutton Coldfield dental practice, these cosmetic braces are designed to quickly and subtly improve the alignment of the teeth in your smile line – known as the “social six” teeth. Comprising clear and tooth-coloured components, these braces work in a very short time period.
An alternative to braces to correct issues with the front teeth, this aligner is the fastest orthodontic option at our Sutton Coldfield clinic. It is useful for treating protruding front teeth.
This system of clear, removable aligners can treat a range of orthodontic complaints.
