Straighter teeth for a brighter smile

Do you have crooked, crowded or gappy teeth? Struggling to keep them clean and feeling awkward about your smile? There’s no need to keep carrying this burden.

Aside from the cosmetic improvements that straighter teeth can bring, your dental health is also improved. Crooked teeth mean more places for food to get stuck and bacteria to build up. Brushing is often not effective enough at getting into these difficult to reach nooks and crannies. This can ultimately increase your chances of tooth decay and gum disease. Gum disease in particular is known to have knock-on effects on your general health. Braces in Cambridge offer a way to avoid all of these unsavoury consequences for your dental health.

What kinds of braces are available?

At Burwell Dental we offer both fixed and removable braces in Cambridge. Removable braces are ideal for shifting the position of individual and small groups of teeth. Cleaning your braces is made easy as you can simply take them off. However for more extensive teeth straightening, fixed braces are the way to go. Metal brackets and wires are fitted around your teeth. These are adjusted every four to six weeks by one of our highly trained dentists. We will also provide you with guidance on how to keep both your braces and your teeth clean during your treatment. For fixed metal braces this is usually in the order of 12 to 18 months.

Aren’t braces just for kids?

Absolutely not. Achieving straighter teeth is a great idea whether you are a child or an adult. At Burwell Dental, we cater to both. Adults may be put off by the idea of wearing fixed metal braces, however there are now alternatives, including clear braces.

Straighter teeth can have a significant impact on your life. The confidence that comes with a more aesthetically pleasing smile can enhance your professional and personal relationships.
