Many men and women in their early twenties through to their late forties have looked at their teeth in the mirror and wondered if there was anything they could do to improve their smiles. It’s amazing how much importance we place on our teeth, whether it’s their shape, size or their general condition. It seems that teeth are a mirror of our overall health and vitality, in more ways than one.

There are plenty of reasons that someone might want to have some cosmetic work done on their teeth, and we see most of these at the Straight Teeth Suite in Loughborough.

Cosmetic Reasons

Of course, there are plenty of cosmetic reasons to pursue teeth-straightening treatments, and  lingual braces can close gaps between teeth, as well as align them properly. Your reason may just be because you want to smile at an interview with confidence, but it is amazing how a small change in the shape of your teeth can also change the way you think about yourself.

Health Reasons

There are also plenty of health benefits associated with having your teeth straightened. Misaligned teeth can suffer from more wear and tear, because your bite is skewed and gaps can give bacteria and plaque more chance to get at the enamel and cause decay. Even in later life, small changes in the alignment of your teeth can provide important health benefits.

What are Lingual Braces? 

Lingual braces are perhaps one of the most important recent developments in orthodontic technology. One of the reasons why many adults have found it difficult to pursue teeth-straightening treatment in their later years is that they don’t want the discomfort and visibility of having a brace in their mouth. Lingual braces are largely invisible, which means that people around you will hardly notice that you are wearing something on your teeth. Lingual braces are fixed braces on the teeth’s inner surface; one of the advantages of this design is that they cannot be seen from the front, and so they straighten your teeth in an extremely discreet manner. Lingual braces are permanent, which means they stay in your mouth 24/7.  Some people are initially put off by this, but lingual braces are actually the more practical option in the long run. At the Straight Teeth Suite in Loughborough we’ve found that the availability of this kind of braces is the primary reason why adults are starting to come forward in greater numbers for orthodontic treatment.
