Crooked, crowded and improperly aligned teeth can do more than just affect a patient’s self-esteem. Misaligned teeth can increase the risk of tooth decay considerably.
[London, 14/09/2018] – This is because plaque and bacteria tend to gather in the small crevices created by misaligned teeth and can be particularly difficult to remove. Straight teeth therefore not only look and feel good but have significant oral health benefits as well.
Invisalign at Harley Street Dental Clinic is an innovative teeth straightening system that helps patients straighten their teeth discreetly without conspicuous metal braces. Invisalign at Harley Street Dental Clinic is ideal for image-conscious teenagers and adults who do not wish everyone to know that they are undergoing teeth straightening treatment.
