Affordable braces in Reading are available to those who want a healthier, straighter and more beautiful smile. The cost of braces and aligners are quite high but the benefits gained are priceless. Orthodontists make sure that every patient receives quality treatment regardless of cost.

British are being warned that cut-price braces available online can damage their teeth. There are cheap orthodontist kits being offered online with videos on how to fit and use them. A traditional dentist charges from £2,500 to £5,000 to straighten the teeth. Meanwhile, SmileDirectClub claims that it can help people with mild to moderate problems for only £1,499.

The British Orthodontic Society launched a campaign to warn the British against unsupervised dental treatment. According to Jonathan Sandler, BOS president, serious conditions can be missed and inappropriate and dangerous treatment can be carried out in the absence of face-to-face contact with a dental professional.

Dr. Nigel Carter of Oral Health Foundation said that consumers feel that online braces are a savvy choice but orthodontics must always involve a trained professional. If treatment is not monitored, the patient may not achieve the best outcome and there are risks of permanent damage.

SmileDirectClub has opened shops in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Cambridge, Newcastle and Cardiff. Customers can consult with a UK dentist through email, web chat or phone call to determine how the braces are working.

The online process starts from a 3D scan of the teeth from the shop or a pharmacy. A 3D optical camera will create an interactive image of the smile, teeth and gum line. Afterwards, the 3D image will be emailed to one of the firms registered dentists to see how they can help the customer. A box of personalized 3D-printed aligners will be sent to the customer. The clear braces have to be changed weekly to move and straighten the teeth.
