Teeth Straightening Treatment to Improve Your Looks and Personality

Your self-confidence can be seriously jeopardised by a smile marred by crooked or gapped teeth. Smiles at Hillside knows correcting these misaligned teeth offers tremendous benefits to your self-esteem and oral health, but also understands you would wish to be comfortable with your treatment – from how it looks to how it feels. The Smiles at Hillside offer an easy, painless and effective teeth straightening treatment North London which allows patients to straighten their teeth without other people noticing that they are undergoing treatment through either Fastbraces or the Invisalign or Smilelign invisible braces systems.

Producing maximum results in less time than traditional metal braces, the teeth straightening treatment North London at Smiles by Hillside is just right for anyone who needs orthodontic treatment but would be uncomfortable wearing unsightly contraptions inside their mouths, like socially active young adults and teenagers. With the teeth straightening treatment North London, teeth can be gradually and gently straightened without resorting to the use of those ugly and uncomfortable brackets, bars, and bands. Since the Fastbraces, Invisalign or Smilelign braces can be removed easily whenever called for, patients can eat freely as well as brush, and floss as they would normally do. The dental professionals at Smiles at Hillside can fit you with these lightweight fixed braces that will straighten your teeth without affecting your appearance or social life during the treatment period.

In case you have been putting off addressing your misaligned teeth due to worry about the possible discomfort and embarrassing appearance of having on those awkward traditional metal braces, you can relax after your initial teeth straightening treatment North London consultation. Once you start the treatment, impressions are taken of your bite and used along with the Invisalign or Smilelign proprietary 3-dimensional computer imaging software to custom-make a one-of-a-kind series of clear retainers that is right just for you. Each retainer in the series will be worn in succession for about seven to fourteen days, or until the teeth are fully aligned. The first retainer in the series is made to fit comfortably over each patient’s teeth in the alignment they are currently in. The last retainer in the Invisalign or Smilelign series is closely contoured to match with the desired final teeth alignment. Each aligner in the series will be worn for the duration of a prescribed period. The first aligner in the series will be replaced with the second and so forth until the patient gets to the last one in without the inconvenience, embarrassment and discomfort of those metal braces used in traditional ortho-dentistry. The teeth straightening treatment North London using Invisalign or Smilign technology can require as many as 30 or as few as 18 aligners, depending on the graveness of the condition that has to be corrected. The aligners are designed to be comfortable so you should be able to wear them for the recommended 20 to 22 hours a day without much effort or inconvenience.

For Fastbraces, the teeth straightening treatment North London uses a different but just as effective proprietary technology. While traditional braces are usually square in shape and typically move the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year, thus requiring two years of treatment time, the patented triangular Fastbraces bracket gently allows for movement of the crown and the root of the teeth at the same time with no extra risk for the patient and facilitates completion of the treatment in a year or less time. Fastbraces also offer ceramic brackets that can be colour-matched to your teeth.

Whether you opt for either Fastbraces or Invisalign or Smilelign, as with traditional metal braces, the teeth straightening treatment North London by Smiles at Hillside can be used to correct crooked teeth, protruding teeth, crowded teeth, widely-spaced or gapped teeth, overbite, under bite, and cross bite conditions. Details of the treatment, including specific duration, will however necessarily vary on a case-to-case basis and depends on the outcome of individual consultations. During your first consultation, the dental professionals at Smiles by Hillside will determine the most appropriate braces treatment for you and provide you with a corresponding treatment plan. The cost of the teeth straightening treatment North London will depend on your teeth condition, the complexity of your treatment and how long your treatment will take. Unlike regular braces, once you get fitted with your Fastbraces or Invisalign or Smilelign braces, you can rest assured that you would not have to endure pain, discomfort, mouth sores or injuries caused by the brace wires, or have any difficulty in eating. You will also not have to feel awkward in public each time you open mouth to speak.
