Health Benefits of Straight Teeth

Many people consider crooked teeth to be a cosmetic issue, but the  health benefits of straight teeth are actually quite significant. While having straight teeth definitely contributes to a beautiful smile, it also bodes well for both your dental health and your overall health.

While a lucky few will have naturally straight teeth, people with crooked or misaligned teeth don’t have to miss out  on a healthy, beautiful smile.

EDC can help you straighten your teeth with products like Invisalign , Cfast and Inman aligners. Book a consultation to explore the possibilities.


The Trouble with Crooked Teeth

When teeth don’t line up properly, the result is a malocclusion. Most UK adults are affected by some form of malocclusion, which comes in several different types. With crowding and spacing, the issue is the proximity of the teeth. Other malocclusions involve misalignments in the way the teeth come together when the person bites.  

 Crooked and misaligned teeth are common dental issues, but they can also cause serious problems if left untreated. In fact, the  situation is likely to worsen as time passes, so taking steps to correct this type of issue early can save you time, money, stress and discomfort. 

Malocclusions put abnormal stress on your teeth and jaw, setting the stage for a wide array of problems such as joint pains and bite problems. They can also increase your risk of periodontal (gum) disease. In contrast, straight teeth are more likely to allow your teeth and jaw to function as designed, and they are easier to maintain.




The Modern Way to Make Your Perfect Smile

Using the innovative Align Technology together with impressions of your teeth, a series of custom-made aligners will be produced for you. These aligners are replaced every two weeks by the next set in the sequence thus slowly helping to move your teeth into the desired position.

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn’t have any metal parts which can rub and irritate the mouth. The aligners are made from a clear, strong medical grade plastic which sits around the teeth. They are virtually invisible when worn and can be easily removed for eating, brushing your teeth and even special occasions meaning that there is little impact on your everyday life.

Cost: from £2500


Cfast is a simple, gentle, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that straightens the top and bottom front six teeth,  thus satisfying the needs of the vast majority of adult patients.
Cfast takes less time than conventional braces because it focuses only on the “social six”, the front teeth that most influence the smile.  With aesthetically-pleasing clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, Cfast is barely noticeable and is readily accepted and proving hugely popular across the world.



Cfast are very discreet and hard to notice unless people get really close, Cfast will not affect your speech or eating, we have placed them on some very famous people without the press ever knowing.
