Orthodontics

WHAT IS ORTHODONTICS?

Orthodontics is the means by which teeth are moved into a better position. The benefits of this include improved dental health and appearance. For many patients, their enhanced appearance contributes to increased self esteem and enjoyment of life.

It’s never too late to change your smile. Orthodontic treatment can be carried out at almost any age provided the teeth and supporting structures are healthy. It is increasingly common for adults to have treatment, especially with the advent of low visibility braces. Most frequently treatment is done in the early teenage years when the permanent teeth have erupted, however in some cases it can be started before all the baby teeth have been lost. Currently the majority of orthodontic treatment is done using fixed appliances and is followed by long term wear of retainers to prevent unwanted tooth movement.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

Wherever possible, the removal of teeth is avoided. The most up to date braces are used. If you are concerned about the appearance of your brace, you maybe suitable for clear aligners such as Smilelign or lingual braces, where the brace is glued behind the teeth and therefore not visible.  Forestadent® 2D lingual braces are the flatest brackets on the market and therefore much more comfortable. Growth modifying appliances may be appropriate for certain individuals. Also available is the latest generation in self-ligating appliance (the Damon appliance) and the Insignia appliance, a bespoke appliance designed to reduce treatment length. Simple appliances can be used in conjunction with more complex treatments or occasionally they can be used in isolation.
