Our teeth and smile can have a massive impact on our self-esteem and dental imperfections can significantly contribute to low self-esteem in particular. All of us long to have a smile that we are confident with, and at Specialist Orthodontist Harley Street we can provide orthodontic treatment that best suits you. We offer a variety of treatment options for you to choose from, which you can discuss and decide with our professionals, in order for you to find the best fit for you and your lifestyle. Our orthodontic specialists have a high level of specialist training and experience in performing these procedures and will carry out your treatment to the highest standard. Some of the specific dental problems we look out for are:
Underbite, Overbite/Overjet, Crossbite
There are several ways that our teeth can form and without any influence from us or our habits. This can mean that we may experience some structural issues. The underbite refers to where the bottom teeth stick out past the top teeth when a person bites their teeth together. This is a case which children can grow-out of but adults must seek help for. The overbite/overjet can be a bit more complicated and results in the upper teeth moving out past the bottom teeth. This causes a gap between the upper and bottom teeth, which forms when the person bites down. This can make certain foods like sandwiches very difficult to consume. Lastly, a crossbite refers to a bite where certain teeth are hiding on the inside of the mouth, instead of the outside.
Everyone has a unique smile. We have no control over how many we have, the size of our mouth or our teeth and whether they fit into our mouths when they grow out. But it is our job to help you have the most comfortable and fitting smile, regardless of the circumstance. The overcrowding of teeth is extremely common and can cause problems with effective brushing which can then create long lasting damage. Overcrowding can also produce other complications such as overlapping or crooked teeth.
Another area that we can help with is when uneven spacing affects teeth. This is a fairly common dental issue and can be fixed by creating or altering the spaces in between a patient’s teeth. By doing this we can improve both the alignment of the teeth, but also the general harmony between the upper and lower teeth in the mouth.Orthodontic treatment can be extremely helpful and has several benefits. Having straight teeth and avoiding an overcrowded mouth can massively improve your overall dental hygiene. It is easier and more effective to clean straight teeth, leaving your mouth healthier, fresher and creates less opportunity for food particles and even plaque to build up. There are also significant physical benefits to receiving orthodontic treatment. On a physical level, orthodontic treatment can provide noticeable differences to your shoulders and your neck. The kind of pain experienced in the jawbone due to poorly aligned teeth can be transferred to the neck and shoulders, therefore causing a significant amount of daily throbbing and pain. Other problems caused by poorly aligned teeth are headaches due to teeth grinding, and even certain sinus problems that can prohibit breathing properly.
If you’re looking for an easy treatment that is almost completely invisible, Invisalign could be the right choice for you. This treatment focuses on gently moving your teeth and bite into the required position using transparent aligner technology. By using cutting-edge computer technology, our orthodontists will design your smile specifically for you and your teeth. Based on 3D images and moulds of your teeth taken by your orthodontist, a series of clear plastic aligners will be custom-made for you. By wearing these aligners for 6-15 months, your teeth will showcase brilliant results. This treatment is reliable and efficient, easy to fit around your lifestyle and aims to give you the results you desire.
Clear braces consist of a series of aligners, following a treatment plan designed just for you. By firstly taking moulds of your teeth and mouth, we will create bespoke aligners that specifically fit and are designed for your smile. Following this you will wear a succession of different aligners over your teeth, causing your teeth to slowly and comfortably manoeuvre into a position that is straighter and more aesthetically pleasing. By being completely removable these braces are significantly more convenient for your everyday life than traditional metal braces. Additionally, these braces are also clear, meaning they will be less noticeable to others and can give you more confidence throughout your treatment.
For some patients, metal braces might be a better fit, and the brilliant part about lingual braces is how discreet they are. By taking impressions of your teeth, your dentist will then create your braces using wires and brackets, ensuring that once they are on your teeth, they fit perfectly. The braces are placed on the back of your teeth, as a way of creating a more discreet experience, whilst still getting brilliant results and a wonderful smile. Though the estimated time period ranges between 18-36 months, this treatment is ideal for those who would prefer their braces not to be visible to others. And similarly to traditional metal braces, over the course of the treatment process you will be asked to see your dentist at regular intervals, to allow them to assess your progress and to make any necessary adjustments.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is a treatment that has become more popular in recent years. If you are someone who is wanting to straighten and brighten up your smile at an older age, it can be extremely inconvenient to have long and intense treatments. Six Month Smiles is a brilliant treatment focusing on simply correcting and straightening teeth, therefore helping to give a more appealing look to the entire smile. By pulling together years of development and experience to create a set of braces that work better than your traditional braces, this treatment can also complete the process in as little as six months. This timeframe eliminates the inconvenience of traditional braces which can stop many people from finding and receiving the right treatment that can help improve their smile. Since Six Month Smiles has a shorter treatment plan, it is the ideal treatment for those who want a quick cosmetic improvement.
Here at Specialist Orthodontist Harley Street we aim to create a personalised treatment plan for you and your smile. Everyone’s teeth and dental needs are different and our experienced team is here to help you find the right fit for you.
