A large number of people have mild to moderate problems with the alignment of their teeth, but many of them don’t address these issues. What they may not realise is that by ignoring what they think is a small problem, bigger issues can arise. By investing in clear braces in Beaconsfield, they can not only have a straighter smile, but improve their oral health in other ways.
Some people believe that they are too old to work on correcting misalignments, but that isn’t true. More and more adults are turning to clear braces in Beaconsfield to adjust their teeth, with practices such as Garden View Dental Care offering a range of options.
Crowded or gappy teeth
Sometimes there is a discrepancy between the size of the teeth and the size of the jaw. If the teeth are too big or the jaw too small, this can lead to crowding of the teeth. This, in turn, can cause other dental problems such as jaw pain, gum disease and premature wearing of the teeth. If the teeth are too small or the jaw too big, the patient can have the opposite problem of uneven gaps between the teeth. This can also be caused by actions such as thumb sucking as a child. Both crowded and gappy teeth can be corrected with clear braces in Beaconsfield.
Twisted or crooked teeth
Twisted teeth can be a symptom of crowding, but there are a number of other causes, including early loss of teeth, badly-fitting crows, gum disease and injury. Sometimes it is simply a case of genetics. Whatever the reason, twisted teeth can easily be corrected using clear braces in Beaconsfield.
Abnormal or misaligned bite
The human jaw is designed to fit together in a specific way, with the upper teeth just overlapping the lower teeth and the molars at the back fitting together snugly. However, it is quite common for people to have a slight overbite, where the upper jaw protrudes so the teeth overlap the lower teeth too much, or an underbite, where the lower teeth project in front of the upper teeth. Both these, and other misalignments, can be treated with clear braces.
