- Grinding or clenching your teeth is very common in many adults and can be very damaging.
- Tooth Grinding (Bruxing)
We are often asked at our dental practice here in St John's Wood, north London for reviews of clear braces from patients that have actually had them, we are also asked about the advantages and disadvantages of this type of almost invisible brace and so this blog post will focus on these specific areas.
Here's what Heather Pearson, a patient ours said about someone that she knew that had an almost invisible brace
"I was impressed by his brace… You couldn't really notice it… I was in his presence for half an hour before I actually noticed the brace"
She then goes on to say:
"I always wanted braces from a very young age, It was one of those things where you keep saying I'll do it next year, I'll do it next year from the time I was in my 20s and now I'm in my early 40s, I just thought it's never too late... I was also quite surprised when I found out how cheap it was, which was another major bonus… And now when I see myself in photographs I just look completely different, and I'm happy to be in photographs now… It's a huge change"
Here is her full review of the orthodontics she had.
Dr Paul Abrahams says:
"There are a wide variety of options for adults to change the way their teeth look using some form of brace. There are a number of systems out there today, systems like Six Months Smiles and CFast, Which we both offer in the practice. These are a system of white brackets and white wiresAs opposed to the traditional stainless steel braces that people used to wear and generally speaking they move teeth to unacceptable position within about six months. The other system we use is a clear system called Invisalign which is a series of clear, almost invisible aligners, which you wear over the top of your teeth..."
