British people are supposedly notorious for their ugly, crooked teeth, but now more and more adults are turning to adult dental braces to fix their problem and get the perfect smile. So if you’re worried about your crooked teeth and you’re thinking about a long-term solution, getting adult braces in Newcastle Upon Tyne could be the answer.
Here, Ewan Bramley Dental Care looks at the benefits of adult braces and how they could provide a long-term solution to get your teeth back on track this summer.
Metal mouth. Jaws. Ugly Betty. It’s no fun having braces as a teenager, but what about when you are an adult? In the US, the number of adults seeking braces increased by 37% between 1994 and 2004, according to the American Association of Orthodontists.
Braces are in high demand in this country too. Nearly 1 million people in the UK started orthodontic treatment last year and we reportedly spent almost £400m last year on cosmetic dentistry.
DR. Ewan Bramley, of Ewan Bramley Dental Care, has seen the number of adults seeking adult braces at his private practice increase by 55% in less than 2 years.
“The stigma of wearing braces is certainly less than it was,” he says. And the stigma of having bad teeth is worse than ever.
So, why have braces in the first place?
As well as making a real difference to a person’s health – an incorrect bite can cause jaw and muscle strain and headaches, and it can be harder to clean crooked teeth – the adult braces we offer here at Ewan Bramley Dental Care will give you a perfectly straight smile.
How common is orthodontic treatment?
Around one in three British children has crooked teeth and needs orthodontic treatment to straighten them. More than ever, adults now want treatment, many having missed out when they were children.
According to the British Orthodontic Society (BOS), nearly 1 million people in the UK started orthodontic treatment last year.
Is Private Treatment a better option ?
One advantage of the private treatment we offer here at Ewan Bramley Dental Care for example, is that you have a wider choice of braces, including clear or invisible adult braces as well as Fastbraces.
Braces have come a long way and Ewan Bramley Adult Braces and Invisible Braces can present you with the opportunity to achieve beautiful straight white teeth without the need for veneers and crowns or the not-so-wonderful ‘train track’ braces.
What are braces like?
NHS braces are made of metal, but Ewan Bramley offers invisible adult braces. While a standard brace can take more than two years to create the perfect smile, Invisible Braces – made from clear plastic – can generate results in just four weeks, helping to nudge teeth back to where they belong without the pain, hassle and ugliness of traditional braces.
