No matter how crooked or misaligned your teeth are, your dentist can help restore them to a state of natural looking straightness. Teeth which are out of place or a bite that is not quite symmetrical can all be dealt with by the fitting of a brace; still the most effective way to straighten teeth that is available in British dental surgeries.
Braces consist of a series of metal brackets which are attached to your teeth. These brackets have metal wires threaded through them which your dentist can adjust to pull your teeth into the required positions to give you a perfectly aligned smile. This can be achieved at regular appointments in the surgery where your dentist will make the necessary adjustments.
Braces are worn, on average, for about two years but it really depends on what needs to be achieved in the mouth as to how long you will need to wear it for. They can be difficult to clean and some people worry about food getting trapped within all the brackets and wires. But it really just takes a little extra effort and you will find that you are soon used to your new routine.
Some people find them a little unsightly to look at, but just imagine what your teeth will look like once the treatment is finished! You will be able to feel comfortable in your skin and confident about the look of your smile thanks to the work done by the brace. If you have any anxieties about the length of the treatment or whether it will be painful then you should talk to your Weybridge dentist as he or she will be able to give you all of the relevant information.
