If your child has a misaligned jaw or crooked teeth then we may suggest orthodontics to help correct these problems. Our aim is to identify any potential issues with the development of your child’s teeth as soon as possible so the correct action can be taken, sometimes even before their adult teeth have fully erupted as this may be able to reduce or even eliminate the need for treatment later on once all their adult teeth are in place.
Many adults have problems with misaligned teeth that weren’t corrected during childhood. Alternatively some people might have worn braces as a child but have subsequently seen their teeth move position, perhaps as a result of not wearing their retainers or as a result of getting older (your teeth do move with age).With an increasing emphasis on the appearance of teeth, adult orthodontics is becoming more popular and the newest solutions are very discreet.
Although many people will choose to wear braces to improve their smile, treatment can be a worthwhile investment in your oral health as straighter teeth can be easier to keep clean.
What is the Procedure for Getting Braces?
You will need a consultation with our dentist so your teeth and jaws can be properly examined. Once an assessment has been made we will refer you to a Specialist Orthodontist.
