Orthodontics - Perfecting a futureproof smile with orthodontic treatment
Specialist orthodontic treatments diagnose, prevent and correct misaligned jawlines and teeth to provide children and adults with a winning smile.
Crooked or misaligned teeth can be a major cause of self-doubt for people of all ages. Orthodontic treatments and corrective braces provide a straighter smile and remedy issues caused by an overbite or underbite, spaced or gapped teeth.
Advanced orthodontics options offer discreet straightening including fixed, removable and almost invisible braces.
After referral, a treatment plan will be created based on the desired outcome. The options for treatment include fixed durable braces designed to withstand damage worn for a set time and low profile discreet braces available in a variety of colours or ceramic braces matched to the tooth colour for a natural appearance.
Innovative lingual braces, fixed to the reverse of teeth, are hidden from sight whereas removable braces are versatile and an ideal solution for minor corrective treatment.
Braces are quick to fit and Invisalign braces can even be removed when eating if preferred. The length of treatment will depend on the severity of the problem and type of brace. Once the brace has been moulded and fitted, follow up appointments will ensure the alteration is on course.
I'd never show my teeth before, its changed my confidence completely.
