Why is Orthodontics important?
The positioning of your teeth can have numerous impacts on not only the health of the mouth but other muscles and parts of the body too. All orthodontic treatment methods are designed to apply gentle pressure to the teeth to move them into a new position and retrain the muscles of the face and jaw.
Our passionate orthodontists can treat bite or alignment concerns you have and work with you to craft a customised best treatment plan based on your goals.
Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment Harley Street
Orthodontic treatment will not only improve your oral hygiene but also boost your confidence by giving you the smile you have always dreamed of.
Overcrowded or misaligned teeth can make cleaning and flossing very difficult and lead to potential issues such as cavities, decay or gum disease. Additionally, if teeth are not aligned correctly they are more at risk of wearing down or chipping. Addressing these issues will make it much easier to eat and improve the facial contours through giving the underlying structures the support they require.
Finally, a problematic bite or tooth issue places stress or tension on the chewing muscles, resulting in negative consequences such as headaches, TMJ disease, or pain in the neck and shoulders.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why might a patient require orthodontic treatment?
There is a range of reasons why a patient may be recommended orthodontic treatment, from crowded teeth to a crooked smile – orthodontics is a highly popular specialist area of dentistry, particularly for correcting alignment and bite.
Do braces fix teeth permanently?
Braces can transform a smile in as little as 6 months, but in order to maintain the finished result of braces, it is often recommended that you use a retainer during the night to keep teeth in their new position.
Typically, braces are the most recommended option for those looking to achieve a straighter, more functional smile, and they have a highly successful track record of doing just that.
What is the best age for braces?
The best thing about braces is that almost anyone can benefit from them! Traditionally, braces have been synonymous with young teens, but thanks to modern dentistry, more discreet solutions have made braces popular with adults too.
In fact, almost anyone can get braces, as long as your teeth and gums are fundamentally healthy. It’s worth noting though that braces aren’t usually recommended for very young patients below the age of 12, and they can have the quickest impact in teens as the teeth move more readily at this age.
Is orthodontic treatment painful?
Typically, orthodontics is a relatively pain-free area of dentistry, however, this of course depends on what sort of treatment you’re receiving. For example, having braces fitted should be relatively pain-free, but it is normal to feel pain and discomfort during the following days as pressure is being placed on the individual teeth.
Your dentist will be able to discuss your treatment, including any potential painful side effects at length, and any necessary medication will be given. In most cases, over-the-counter medication should be enough to help with any discomfort.
