What is Orthodontics?
It’s the way to have a great looking smile, a healthy mouth and avoid all sorts of medical issues that can come from crooked, crowded, misaligned teeth and jaw problems.
Basically, it’s to make teeth go where their meant to go & do the job they are there to do. Orthodontics and Orthopaedics can also focus on modifying facial growth, known as dentofacial orthopaedics.
Most of us have something we don’t like about our smile or our teeth in general. Do you smile with your lips together? Cover your mouth when you smile?
We can help – Adults & Children
Once children were really the only ones that had braces, now though over 25% of people doing orthodontics are adults.
Long gone of the days of being called “tram track” or the like, choices are available even in fixed orthodontics/braces. Clear Aligners are also now able to fix a lot of problems that they couldn’t before – (& that some clear aligner systems still can’t fix)
For Children with tiny, overcrowded mouths there are also what we call; expansion appliances. With this we can take advantage of your child’s natural growth process to treat and even prevent future overcrowding and bad bites. It’s never too early to see how your child is developing.
