Braces in Milton Keynes

How do braces work?

At Northlight Dental in Milton Keynes, we provide several different types of braces in Milton Keynes to effectively resolve various dental issues. These issues include crooked, crowded and gappy teeth, as well as overbites, underbites and crossbites. These can all affect your ability to eat and talk properly. Braces work by pushing or pulling the teeth into alignment using sustained pressure. This pressure causes the bone around your teeth to restructure itself to accommodate the new, straighter positions your braces are nudging them towards.

Advantages of braces

Straighter teeth look better, so your smile will certainly be enhanced. But they are also easier to clean, which means dental disease becomes a far less likely prospect in your future.

Types of braces

Braces fall into several different categories at our dentist in Milton Keynes:

  • fixed metal braces, which remain fixed to your teeth for the entire duration of your treatment
  • fixed braces made from tooth-coloured and transparent material providing more a more discreet look, which are also attached to your teeth throughout your treatment
  • removeable braces made of a clear material that can easily be taken out and put back in.

Are braces expensive?

The price of braces varies, depending on the type you choose. However, we understand that the cost can be challenging for many people to meet and so we enable payments to be spread out over time to make it more manageable.
