Brace yourself for a high-tech way to straighter teeth

Patients looking for braces that avoid the ‘Ugly Betty' look can now look forward to shortened treatment time, too.

The London Lingual Orthodontic Clinic has adapted the smile of Kelly Brooke, Sadie Frost and Steve Jones and is the only clinic in the UK fully dedicated to lingual orthodontics.

Orthodontist Didier Fillion has introduced Orapix – a new 3D digital approach which allows for computer-assisted bracket placement and alignment prediction.

The Orapix system enables Didier to create a virtual set-up and simulate the treatment and position before going forward with the procedure and the invisible braces.

Once the positioning of the brackets is decided CAD/CAM technology is used to reproduce the same position of the brackets on the patient's actual teeth. 

The quality of the final result is increased due to this unrivalled precision, and as a result the time of treatment is also dramatically shortened.

The London Lingual Orthodontic Clinic is the first-ever dental clinic dedicated to lingual, or ‘invisible' orthodontics and now one of the first in the UK to offer couture braces.

Founded by Didier Fillion and Asif Chatoo, the private practice is based on 57a Wimpole Street in London's West End.

They also offer traditional dentistry services as well as cosmetic procedures.

Dr Chatoo, principal dentist at the London Lingual Orthodontic Clinic says: ‘The Hollywood smile is not just on the wishlist of the young, inspired by celebrity magazines. Having perfect teeth has also become an aspiration of the so-called “baby boomers”, many of whom are trying to improve their looks at an age where hitting middle age and later retirement can resign one to early nights and cups of cocoa.

‘In a race to stay looking youthful, these people are increasingly turning to orthodontics both as an anti-ageing weapon as well as to correct teeth that were neglected in their youth. One must remember that when this group was young, orthodontics was not always a priority, so many were left to live with wonky, misaligned or crowded teeth and have been self-conscious about them ever since.'

Straightening of the teeth is also a popular phenomenon among celebrity circles, with both Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise opting for treatments to improve the appearance of their smiles.

It is not only the look of a person's smile which can benefit from this type of treatment, the long–term health of the teeth, gums and jaw joints can be improved as the biting pressure is spread evenly over all the teeth.

Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive with the British Dental Health Foundation, says: ‘Orthodontic work of this kind is best carried out in children, but is becoming increasingly popular with adults. The first thing to do is visit your dentist and get his or her advice. Your dentist will know what kind of treatment you need, and can help you make the necessary arrangements.

Dr Carter adds: ‘Lingual braces and invisible braces are becoming more popular now, as they allow people to be discreet about their treatment. The wires are hidden behind the teeth so they are nearly invisible with lingual braces and invisible systems fit over the teeth like clear mouth guards. This means that no one need know you are straightening your teeth.'

National Smile Month is currently running from 16 May-16 June 16 and is supported by three giants of oral health-care Oral-B, Wrigley's Orbit Complete and Listerine.
