FAQs

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a field of dentistry dedicated to treating the development of the teeth, as well as the face and jaws, to ensure your mouth and jaw are aligned and working properly together.

We have the experience to diagnose and treat all dental problems relating to orthodontics, the science and art of teeth-straightening. We consider the comfort and harmony of your bite because without realising it, how you eat and speak is central to your wellbeing.

How do braces work?

Braces encourage the gradual, guided movement of your teeth by applying gentle pressure over an extended period of time. Throughout your treatment, your orthodontist will adjust and change the wires to guide your teeth into their new position. If you opt for aligners, these will be replaced every few weeks as your teeth are progressively moved and straightened.

At The London Lingual Orthodontic Clinic, we can use a variety of different brace systems to best fit your needs and have been early pioneers of digital planning technology to provide truly bespoke treatment plans.

How are braces put on?

Traditional fixed braces are bonded to the teeth using a special type of bonding glue. Depending on the type of braces you choose, the metal or ceramic brackets are fixed to the front or back of individual teeth, with thin adjustable wires slotted into the brackets to guide movement.

Do I need braces?

Whilst it’s often assumed that only people with crowded, crooked or protruding teeth need braces, there are other factors that can lead you to seek orthodontic treatment, such as:

• A misaligned bite (underbite, overbite, open bite or crossbite)
• Gaps between your teeth
• Teeth which protrude outside of the lips

Some patients are looking to improve their smile dramatically and their dentist will suggest orthodontic treatment as a first step to get teeth into the right position ahead of implants or other restorative treatments.

Ultimately, we understand the significance of how you feel about your teeth and smile in relation to your confidence and wellbeing, so will work with you to devise the right treatment for your needs.
