In recent years, more and more adult patients have been undergoing teeth straightening treatment in order to improve the appearance of their teeth and alleviate common problems associated with crooked and misaligned teeth. Even patients who had their teeth straightened at a young age, may need to undergo treatment once again later in life. However, adult patients would rather not wear metal brackets and wires for months on end.
Luckily, modern dentistry has evolved in recent years and adults can now have their teeth straightened quickly and above all discreetly. Clear braces in Beaconsfield, either fixed or removable, are ideal for patients with busy lifestyles who wish to straighten their teeth without anyone knowing. They are widely available in many dental practices in Buckinghamshire, including Garden View.

Traditional braces have been used by dentists for years and are effective at treating different types of misaligned teeth and bites. However, they are visible and can be quite distracting for adults whose job requires a lot of contact with other people. Clear braces and removable retainers look completely different.
Instead of using metal brackets and wires, patients can choose between clear brackets and wires or plastic, transparent, removable retainers. Though it is required to wear the retainers at least 20 hours per day, they are very comfortable and their designer ensures discretion. With clear braces in Beaconsfield, it is possible to smile without compromising on looks.
Unlike traditional braces, clear braces in Beaconsfield require fewer visits to the dentist for adjustments. This is because clear braces and removable retainers are designed to straighten the teeth by applying less pressure than metal braces and are easier to maintain. Patients with clear, removable braces can eat their favourite meals without worrying that bits of food will get stuck in their brackets. Plus they can take off their aligners for a few hours every day to brush and floss their teeth.
Finally, fixed clear braces require less maintenance than traditional braces. In the event that a bracket breaks or becomes stained, replacement brackets are readily available and can be applied quickly, and easily. In that respect, clear braces are far more convenient than metal braces are.
