More and more people are realising the benefits of having their teeth straightened. Not only is the appearance improved, but there can be clear dental health advantages to having well aligned, evenly spaced teeth. Many people think of this as something only children have done, but in fact anyone of any age can have their teeth straightened.
We will always monitor the development of your child’s teeth, jaws and face from an early age, and advise you if and when any intervention would be appropriate.
However, many adults are now choosing to have their teeth straightened. With the new invisalign system you can even have your teeth straightened with ‘invisible’ braces!
Most treatment is carried out from an orthopaedic viewpoint, which focuses on encouraging optimal development of the bones of the face, rather than unnecessary tooth extraction to ‘create space’. So please ask us if you have any concerns about the appearance of your teeth – helping you is what we are here for.
