Adult Ceramic Braces at Wimbledon’s Ridgway Clinic
An Improved Alternative
For adults considering teeth straightening, the impact braces can have on looks can be a significant issue. Ceramic braces addresses this issue with camouflage. Using translucent brackets instead of coloured ones, they are less visible than the traditional metal braces. Additionally, many ceramic braces use teeth-coloured wires. This decreases their visibility even further. This makes ceramic braces virtually indiscernible from afar and in photos.
- Less visible – through the use of tooth-coloured materials, adult ceramic braces are not as imposing as conventional braces.
- Durable – made of high quality, inherently resistant composite materials, ceramic braces will last the whole duration of the treatment schedule when maintained properly.
- Effective – the ceramic type offers the same level of efficacy for both simple and complex alignment issues.
- Cheaper – discrete alignment treatments such as Invisalign and lingual braces generally cost more than adult ceramic braces. For adult ceramic braces in Wimbledon, Ridgway Dental offers great value for high quality dental services.
Why Braces are Important
Braces are important in improving the appearance of misaligned or crooked teeth. Many adults in the UK postpone fixing their smiles and avoid talking because of their oral health. The effect of bad teeth, as research as shown, can have effects on the overall quality of life of a person.
In addition to misaligned teeth’s impact on confidence, problematic teeth can lead to problems that are more physical. Misaligned teeth or malocclusion can result to speech problems (e.g. lisps), discomfort in the jaw and pain in several areas.
