Orthodontic treatments improve the general appearance of your teeth and is a treatment that focuses on dental displacement.
Traditional orthodontic treatment consists of metal wires being inserted onto orthodontic brackets that are cemented to your teeth, the wire is adjusted periodically and move the teeth into the desired position. They are known commonly as 'braces'. There are a few different types of braces, fixed metal braces – retainer braces, that can be removed – Invisalign, that are clear plastic aligners that can also be removed. All of these are very effective methods of teeth straightening.
Treatment usually takes approximately one year, crooked teeth and teeth that do not sit together properly will greatly benefit from orthodontic treatment. Your teeth will be aligned giving you a perfectly straight teeth and a perfect smile.
Patients who suffer with the following should consider orthodontic treatment;
Overbite– sometimes called 'buck teeth' where upper front teeth lie to far forward over lower teeth.
Under-bite– where lower teeth are to far forward or upper teeth are to far back.
Cross-bite–When the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally.
Open-bite– Space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together.
Misplaced Mid-line –When the centre of your upper front teeth do not line up with the centre of your lower front teeth.
Spacing– Gaps or spaces between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that do not fill the mouth.
Crowding–When there are to many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate.

Patients who have braces fitted need to be dedicated to to their oral hygiene and ensure they brush their teeth regularly whilst paying extra attention to the areas between the wires and the brackets, where food can get lodged.
