Exploring your options for Braces in Windsor
In recent years, dental technology has rapidly evolved and patients have never had so many teeth-straightening options as they do now. If you are concerned about the appearance of your teeth, at Old Windsor Dental Practice, we can diagnose, treat and prevent oral irregularities with the use of braces in Windsor.
Why consider braces?
Braces can help correct issues that affect your day-to-day experience of eating and even sleeping through to your appearance and therefore your confidence. Issues such as overbites and underbites impact on how the jaw moves when eating, leading to issues in chewing and biting. Since the jaw is misaligned, it can the cause a protrusion of the lower or upper jaw, so that your appearance is adversely affected. In addition, this can also lead to sleeping issues as well as possible speech impediments. Braces can help by pulling the jaws into their proper position and correcting the issue.
Braces can also help if your teeth are crooked and do not line up with the teeth next to them. Rather than appearing parallel with each other, they may be twisted and point in different directions. In a similar manner, adult teeth can come in twisted at times. Again, braces can help straighten the teeth and get them to line up with each other.
Although crooked teeth may not have the same impact as overbites and underbites, it might be worth noting that crooked teeth are harder to clean and maintain, which can lead to poor oral hygiene and gum infections.
Choosing the right braces
If you often find it hard to smile because of the appearance of your teeth, you would benefit from seeing our dentist, who will help you explore your options.
At Old Windsor Dental Practice, we offer a range of braces in Windsor. Full traditional braces work incredibly well to improve many dental issues. If you’re looking for a more discreet option, however, we also offer tooth-coloured alternatives. We also offer Invisalign, an innovative teeth-straightening method that employs a series of transparent, removable, plastic aligners to help move your teeth into their correct position. They are almost invisible, if well maintained, and they can be removed for the odd special occasion.
