Do braces have to be metal?
Many people who missed out on corrective treatment as a child are put off as an adult due to a misconception that braces are ugly, uncomfortable, time-consuming or hard to get used to. New techniques mean that this is no longer true and there are a range of braces to suit every requirement. Patients who use us as their orthodontist in Glasgow have benefitted from new braces which are faster, more comfortable and less obtrusive than ever before. Fixed appliances suit some people while others prefer a removeable option. Your choice will also need to take account of the severity of your misalignment and what your lifestyle is. Many people with professional and social engagements prefer a very discreet approach and there are a range of clear plastic aligners or ceramic tooth-coloured brackets that make braces less visible.
Why have straighter teeth?
Correcting the position of your teeth not only enhances your smile, it also contributes to excellent oral health by making them easier to clean. This is because there are fewer gaps in which plaque can accumulate. Properly aligned teeth are also more stable as they do not allow your other teeth to drift into the gaps. Investing in treatment from a skilled Glasgow orthodontist in our team is a gift to yourself as you can enjoy an attractive smile and a healthy future.
