What is orthodontics

Orthodontics is concerned with the re-alignment of the teeth and jaws to improve their function and the appearance of the face and teeth.

Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. Beginning treatment at this time ensures the greatest result in the least amount of time. Orthodontics is more successful when started during the active growth phase, before 15 years of age. Our practice prefers to see patients as early as possible, ideally between 8 and 10 years of age, for the first consultation.

Some of the most direct results of interceptive treatment are:

  • Creating room for crowded, erupting teeth
  • Creating facial symmetry through influencing jaw growth
  • Reducing the risk of trauma to protruding front teeth
  • Preserving space for unerupted teeth
  • Reducing the need for tooth removal
  • Reducing treatment time with braces

    Benefits of orthodontics

    Orthodontic therapy not only makes smiles better for the entire family, but also:

    • Provides smiles for improved self-confidence and well being
    • May improve life chances
    • Better long-term dental health may result from good habits developed during orthodontic treatment
    • Improves ability to chew and function
    • Reduced prominence of upper front teeth may result in them being less likely to be knocked or damaged
    • May reduce vulnerability to teasing, for young people

    By the end of treatment, you will have:

    • Teeth straightened and an improved smile
    • A better bite and teeth may be easier to clean
    • A good dental hygiene routine will be instilled which will be easier to maintain

    Retainer wear is essential throughout life to stop the teeth returning to their original position.
