Who can benefit from braces?
Individuals of all ages can benefit from orthodontic treatment in different ways. You may not like the appearance of your smile, or you might struggle to bite together and eat confidently. If the solution is straight teeth, we can help.
How braces can help
All these misalignments and more can be transformed by our experienced team.
- Crooked and twisted teeth
- Spaces, gaps and missing teeth
- Open bites, where your teeth don’t bite together
- Overbites, where your upper front teeth overlap your lower teeth
- Overjets, where your upper front teeth protrude past your lower teeth
- Crossbites, where some of your upper teeth sit inside your lower teeth
Braces are for everyone, including adults. There’s no reason why you can’t improve your smile later in life. More and more adults are taking advantage of our invisible teeth straightening options, including Invisalign aligners and lingual braces (which hide from view behind your teeth).
If you’ve had orthodontic treatment before, there’s nothing to stop you from having it again. This time you’ll receive fixed and/or removable retainers to make sure your results last.
We recommend bringing your child to see us for a consultation between the ages of 8 and 10. If we have any concerns, we can act quickly while they’re still growing using functional appliances.
Sometimes, early intervention can avoid the need for more complex treatment, and even surgery, further down the line. Functional appliances are usually followed by fixed braces. Younger patients can enjoy customising their braces with a choice of multicoloured elastic ligatures.
Teenagers used to be synonymous with train tracks, but now we have choices. Invisalign Teen straightens teeth using crystal clear, removable aligners. It’s discreet and convenient, but you’ll need the willpower to wear your aligners for at least 20 hours a day.
Teens can also choose from conventional metal braces, clear fixed braces or even hidden lingual braces. We’ll go through all your options during your no-obligation consultation.
