Your guide to getting braces in Burnham

If your teeth are too close together, too far apart, or if you have an underbite or an over bite, you might benefit from braces in Burnham. An overbite is when the top row of teeth stick out in front of the lower teeth when you bite down. An underbite is when your lower row of teeth stick out too far in front of the top teeth when you bite down. These conditions are not good for your jaw or your bite. If you have a bite that isn’t right, you could experience jaw pain and headaches. You can correct these and other alignment and spacing problems with braces.

Braces in BurnhamMany people think braces are only for teenagers, but this isn’t the case anymore. There are many adults who find that they need braces. It could be that you did not receive teeth straightening treatment as a child, or maybe you had braces but your teeth shifted back after treatment. Whatever the reason, you might be questioning whether your smile could benefit from braces in Burnham. If so, the Burnham Dental Surgery is here to help you with modern, discreet braces for adults.

Six Month Smiles

This fixed braces system uses tooth-coloured brackets and wires. It focuses on straightening only the front teeth, known as the ‘social 6’.

This means the treatment is much faster than conventional fixed metal braces. As the name suggests, Six Month Smiles is a quick procedure, with most results achieved in just 6 to 9 months.

Invisalign

Invisalign is another option for our patients to consider. It uses clear plastic aligners to treat crooked, crowded and gappy teeth. The biggest benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners are made from clear plastic, so hardly anyone will even notice you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment. What’s more, they are removable, so you can take them off at mealtimes and when you brush and floss. All in all, this means minimal impact on your lifestyle.
