Straighter teeth whatever age you are
A range of amazing options that include removable Aligners which are almost invisible
We believe everyone deserves a really attractive smile although it is particularly important for image conscious teenagers. Unfortunately teeth have a habit of growing in ways we often wish they didn’t.
Thankfully orthodontic treatment will help many people achieve beautiful straight teeth, a better bite and even improve eating and speaking.
Teeth are an obvious sign of orthodontic problems but the cause is often down to your lips and tongue. While bones in our mouth may be strong, over time the constant action of muscles around them can lead to an underdeveloped jaw and poor facial appearance.
That is why we like to tackle these problems early. It’s never too late to benefit from orthodontics however. One of our happiest orthodontic clients is in her seventies, though you’d never guess it from her appearance.
About 80 per cent of the population suffer from malocclusion, the technical term for teeth that do not fit the jaw. The positioning of teeth affects their rate of wear, the health of the jaw joint and as a consequence overall health.
Braces can help if you have trouble chewing food or have gappy or crooked teeth. Orthodontics can also help you if you have an overbite where your front teeth overlap too much, or an open bite where your upper and lower teeth don’t touch.
Orthodontic treatment can be undertaken at any age and adult treatment is growing fast because it’s now recognised for its role in improving self-confidence in patients who are unhappy with their appearance.
Our range of Invisalign clear aligners, clear braces and traditional braces give you choice about how to get that smile you’ve always wanted, depending on how discrete you want your treatment to be. As a children’s dentist in Weybridge we actually find that a lot of kids prefer traditional braces. It appears that it’s cool to change your colours every time you get them tightened…
A third of 12-year-olds need their teeth straightening, but many parents wait until they qualify for NHS dental treatment only to join the waiting list and miss their chance of getting the best long term outcome.
It's important to give your child the best possible orthodontic care when it really matters because timing affects the length of treatment and the quality of the outcome. If you can give your child straight, healthy teeth for life today, why wait?
