How to correct shifted teeth
If your teeth have moved and you’re unhappy with the way they look, or they’re causing you pain or discomfort, you may want to consider orthodontic treatment.
If you previously had braces but didn’t wear your retainer, it’s often possible to have secondary treatment. There’s a variety of options for straightening teeth beyond traditional fixed braces, including discreet, near-invisible options, depending on the look you want to achieve, your budget and your lifestyle.
During your initial consultation, your dentist will be able to recommend suitable options, based on your needs, the severity of your alignment issues and your individual oral health. These may include:
- Invisalign treatment: Systems like near-invisible Invisalign aligners are discreet and removable, so teeth straightening can fit seamlessly into your lifestyle.
- Lingual braces: Lingual braces, made up of discreet brackets and wires, are also known as ‘hidden braces’ because they’re fitted to the back of your teeth rather than on the front surface.
- Ceramic braces: Ceramic braces are similar to traditional fixed braces, but use clear or tooth-coloured wires and brackets, so they’re less noticeable when they’re attached to your teeth.
