It is Never Too Late for a Straighter Smile
Are you fed up with having wonky teeth? Do you find you often cover up your mouth when smiling? One option is to look into teeth straightening in Watton using the very latest orthodontic technology.
Our dental practice uses a braces system called Fastbraces that can provide results within as little as 20 weeks. The fact that treatment is so quick is reflected in the price and teeth straightening in Watton can be very affordable. If you imagine braces as being ugly contraptions with heavy metal wires and brackets, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised by today’s modern braces.
Fastbraces uses a single very thin discreet wire that is powered by small triangular shaped brackets. The bracket design is particularly innovative and is the reason this brace can work so quickly. If you prefer, the brackets can be made from a clear ceramic material, creating quite a stylish brace. Unlike conventional orthodontic treatment, Fastbraces moves both the tooth and the tooth root at the same time, a treatment that is more comfortable and more effective.
Who Can Benefit from Fastbraces?
As this particular braces system is a fixed brace, it is able to correct a wide range of orthodontic problems. The use of fixed brackets enables our dentist in Watton to precisely plan your treatment, ensuring each tooth is moved into just the right place. Common problems that can be treated include issues with crowding where teeth are overlapping or rotated, as well as problems with teeth that have unsightly gaps in between them. Fastbraces can correct open bites, overbites and cross bites as well as high canines, where your canines or eye teeth are placed too high up in the arch due to insufficient room.
As well as creating a more pleasing smile, correcting your crooked teeth in Watton can improve your dental health. If you find it tricky to brush or floss thoroughly then you are more likely to end up with food and plaque trapped in between your teeth, increasing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. After straightening, you’ll find it much easier to look after your teeth so orthodontic treatment might well be a very worthwhile investment in your oral health.
Will I Have To Wear Retainers after Treatment?
Anyone who has orthodontic treatment needs to be prepared to wear retainers once the braces are removed. However with Fastbraces the retainers only need to be worn for around 15 minutes each day which is quite different from conventional retainers that often need to be left in place continuously for the first few months following treatment. The great thing about these retainers is that it’s super easy to wear them for this limited amount of time each day. It is often recommended that you use them while you are showering or bathing so you can then get on with the rest of your day without having to worry about your retainers.
