Orthodontics is an area within dentistry which focuses on improving the appearance and alignment of teeth which are either crooked, crowded or protruding, orthodontic treatment is available for both child and adult patients at our practice. As well as correcting teeth which are either crowded or crooked, orthodontic treatment can correct your bite, meaning that the risk of damage to your teeth is reduced. Not correcting a bite can also affect the shape of your face.
Orthodontics makes use of appliances to correct the position of an individual’s teeth, the very common appliance known to most people is a brace. The type of orthodontic treatment however is all dependent on the current position of a patient’s teeth and the likelihood of the teeth moving over a period of time.
In the first instance, an individual’s teeth will be assessed by taking X-rays and photographs before they are issued with a bespoke treatment plan. This will include the most recommended orthodontic treatment for your dental issue along with other treatment options. The aim of all orthodontic treatments is the same; however some treatments can be more efficient than others depending on the dental issue.
