Crooked teeth can be a problem at any age, and if left untreated can pose some serious problems to your dental health. If you have crooked teeth, it is important to get them straightened, not just for aesthetic purposes, but for the health of your teeth. Teeth that are not aligned correctly can pose jaw problems, and cause tooth erosion where the teeth are not meeting correctly. The best course of action to take if you have crooked teeth is to get a pair of braces fitted. If you are looking for braces in Birmingham, then St Paul’s Square Dental Practice will be able to assist you and give you a variety of general and cosmetic dentistry options. We understand the seriousness of crooked teeth, but want to approach the situation in a warm and friendly way, as we understand how personal your smile can be.
Fixed Braces are the most common form of brace, and easily the most recognisable. Fixed braces work by attaching metal points to each tooth and passing a wire through each link. The brace is then tightened, and with the expertise from your orthodontist, the teeth will be pulled into position. There are some downsides to fixed braces, which should be considered, however acceptable as small niggles with regard to the huge benefits that straight teeth can give you. Fixed braces can cause irritation on the gums, as the metal can scrape against them, and the intensity of the treatment can also cause the teeth to hurt, as they are being pulled into position.
Fixed braces are the most effective way to achieve straight teeth, and are available for anyone, so if you are looking for braces in Birmingham, then do not hesitate to contact us.
There are many general dentistry treatments that cross over into cosmetic dentistry, as part of dentistry is about producing the best, healthiest looking smile achievable. A good dental hygiene regime will make the teeth appear brighter more naturally, and psychologically if you are prouder of your teeth then you will show them off more. One of the most common forms of general dentistry that is also cosmetic, are white fillings. White fillings are one of the simplest ways to restore your oral health, whilst keeping in mind your cosmetic desires. The look of your teeth is an extremely important factor, as many people will judge the smile before they regard anything else. If you are facing a lot of new people in your day to day life, perhaps in a professional environment, then cosmetic dentistry may be a good option for you.
It is therefore important to consider, if you have crooked teeth, whether braces are an option for you, as crooked teeth can be one of the easiest ways to ruin a smile.
