Everyone’s alignment issues are different. Where your tooth is twisted, mine sticks out. Where yours cross over, mine didn’t down properly. A good dental practice needs to cater for variation by offering different devices aimed at different issues.
Then there is the way people live. You are really good at remembering to do stuff and create new habits. I have got a head like a sieve and can’t remember where I put my keys 2 minutes after I’ve come in the front door. Braces manufacturers need to be able to cater for the way we live as well as what our teeth are like.
That’s why at Cassiobury Dental Practice, we like to be able to offer a choice of braces in Watford that suit people’s alignment issues, their budgets and the way they live.
When you come to us for braces in Watford, you might want braces that you can take out to clean and to eat because you are far too rushed off your feet to spend ages with floss and brush cleaning behind your brackets and wires. Someone else might have all the time in the world for this.
Let’s take a look at the kinds of braces in Watford that we have here:
These are the bracket and wire braces that are cemented onto the front of your teeth. They can be made of metal or clear ceramic with tooth-coloured wires. If you are a bit forgetful, then these are the braces for you. You can’t lose them or forget to change them for the next ones in the series, as you have to with aligners. This means a constant pressure is kept up in moving your teeth. On the other hand, you might find you have to limit your diet while you wear them and that you spent a lot longer cleaning your teeth than normal.
Transparent plastic aligners that can’t be seen once they are in place. You take them out to eat, which is great, but if you keep forgetting to put them back in, or you lose them, it will interfere with the straightening mechanism, which requires sustained pressure, and treatment could end up taking longer.
