Quick Fix Braces

The Guardian newspaper ran an article by the British Orthodontic Society in the 23rd February 2013 edition.

The article, entitled, Considering straightening your teeth? Don’t be misled by the promise of a quick fix, addresses the British Orthodontic Society concerns, following a growing number or reports from patients who are dissatisfied with the results of treatments used by some cosmetic dentists to straighten teeth.

The British Orthodontic Society offered the following advice for those considering teeth straightening:

  • Consider all the options: Any good orthodontist will discuss all the possible types of brace that can be used to correct your teeth. You should be wary if you are only offered one option or one type of brace.
  • Check Qualifications: Some dentists have had as little as 3 hours’ training in straightening procedures, so it’s advisable to ask the orthodontist or dentist how much training and experience they have had in orthodontics and with the type of brace being suggested.
  • Don’t expect a quick fix: While it is true that simple straightening of the front teeth can be carried out in as little as 6 months, this is not always a long-term solution. It often takes at least 12 months to get the teeth fully corrected and biting correctly and in harmony with the jaws and lips.
