Now You See Them, Now You Don’t


In an ideal world, people would be able to get on with doing whatever it is they need to do without the uninvited comments and suggestions of others. It’s not an ideal world, but when it comes to teeth straightening with braces in Sutton Coldfield, it can be.

Wearing braces in Sutton Coldfield can be almost a pleasure because really great discreet adult appliances are available from reputable dentists such as Dental Care Partnership, and a lot less risqué than they sound.

Over the past years, dental researchers have been working flat out to find ways to allow adults to get their teeth aligned without having to go through months or years of embarrassing questions and advice that people just can’t seem to help offering when they see a grown up wearing braces.

The result is a variety of braces in Sutton Coldfield that take the ironmongery out of teeth straightening, sometimes even completely, and allow people to get on with realigning their teeth in private. Consequently, more and more adults are getting their teeth repositioned, and this is a good thing.

The advantages of straighter teeth

Realigning the teeth is not just a vanity project, although adult teeth straightening is often found on a dentist’s website under the cosmetic dentistry section. Yes, straighter teeth look a whole lot more attractive than gappy, crowded, leaning in, leaning out, twisted or undescended teeth, but they are also much better for dental health.

Nature designed people to have well-aligned teeth, but over the last couple of centuries, as people’s diets have changed to become a lot less chewy, the teeth have tended to come in not so well, and sometimes on jawbones that are not big enough.

Take a look at any hunter gatherer tribe and they nearly always have beautifully aligned teeth. When the teeth are where they should be, they last a lot longer because they are less prone to decay and gum disease caused by a build-up of plaque in hard-to-clean nooks and crannies. Also, with an even distribution of chewing pressure, there is less chance of a few over-worked teeth crumbling away in later life.
