Why are straight teeth important?

It’s important for you to have straight teeth for 2 main reasons:

1. Straight teeth are healthier
2. Having a straight smile looks better and makes us look and feel more confident

Why are straight teeth healthier than uneven, gapped or crooked teeth?

The main reason that straight teeth are healthier is because they’re much easier to clean.
This means that food is less likely to get trapped between them which reduces your chances of rdecay and gum disease.

Evenly-spaced teeth are also more effective for biting and chewing food with pressure evenly distributed across the teeth. Where teeth are uneven, specific areas are often subjected to much more pressure and this can lead to fractures, broken teeth and side effects like jaw pain and headaches.

What kinds of issues can orthodontic treatment help?

Orthodontic treatment is extremely effective for people experiencing the following issues:

> Overcrowded teeth
> Gaps between the teeth
> Teeth that protrude/stick out
> Asymmetrical teeth/smiles
> Deep bites (where the upper row of teeth cover the lower teeth)
> Under bites (where the upper teeth are situated within the lower teeth)
> Open bites (where the upper and lower front teeth remain apart when the mouth is closed)

What Orthodontic treatments do you provide?

We provide Invisalign – the world’s most popular (and discreet) teeth straightening option with over 8 million patients successfully treated.
Invisalign is a great option for many orthodontic patients – often adults – who don’t want others to notice they’re wearing braces.


Another great option for fast orthodontic results is Six Month Smiles which – as it’s name suggests – is able to get quick results for patients prioritising speed.


After orthodontic treatment, it’s important to wear dental retainers to keep teeth in place and stop them moving back to their original out-of-place positions.


If you’re looking for orthodontic treatment or have questions about the various options for teeth straightening, please give us a call on 0208 657 1291 or email info@mayfield-dental.co.uk





While you're wearing braces it’s important to take care of your teeth and gums by keeping your mouth clean and healthy. Brushing your teeth regularly, at least three times a day will help to remove any food that has become stuck between your braces, preventing a build up of bacteria which could otherwise lead to cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease. Using dental floss every day will also help to get in between the braces and into those tricky places where your toothbrush can't. Will wearing braces interfere with school activities like sports, playing an instrument, or singing? If you play an instrument or take part in a contact sport it may require you to make some minor adjustments. Wearing a mouthguard to protect your braces or appliance when playing contact sport is always recommended. So if you start to wear a brace, school activities shouldn’t pose a problem. How long do I have to wear braces for? Treatment times vary anywhere between six and 30 months but this will depend on the individual patient. Usually, standard treatments take about 20-24 months. Can you be too old to wear braces? No, your age doesn’t matter when it comes to wearing braces. Adult orthodontic patient numbers are on the increase. The health of gums and the bone supporting the teeth is something we need to check and look out for.
