What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is all about straightening or correcting the position and alignment of your teeth. When they are crooked, crowded or your bite is out of shape, then it can cause oral health problems and damage your confidence and self-esteem.
An orthodontist is a dental specialist who takes further training in this specialism to gain the expertise to move your teeth using orthodontic appliances – braces and retainers.
By monitoring the development of your child’s teeth before their adult teeth have finished coming through, our orthodontist can create a preventative orthodontics treatment plan to address any crowding and bite problems. A minority of children can benefit from treatment starting as young as seven years old, to avoid dental issues when they are older.
It’s worth having an early consultation for your child if you have any concerns at all about their teeth. Acting early can prevent the need for more complex orthodontic treatment as a teenager. Through X-rays, our orthodontist will also be able to tell if there are issues that might affect how their adult teeth come through.
Orthodontics for Adults
It’s never too late to get that winning smile. We can straighten your teeth and at any age, as long as your teeth are suitable for treatment. Our specialist orthodontist can provide expert correction of serious complex problems in adults, or perhaps you’re looking to make cosmetic improvements to your front teeth.
