At Weybridge Orthodontics, we believe that optimum oral wellbeing depends on two things. The fundamental platform for oral wellbeing is having a mouth and teeth that are free from infection and cavities. Equally vital, however, is having a smile that is a pleasure to look at. The basis of both good health and a lovely smile is having straight teeth that bite together correctly. This aspect of dentistry is known in the profession as orthodontics. In Weybridge, this is an area of dentistry we make it our business to excel at.
In Weybridge, orthodontics treatments can boost your health and your self-confidence. When treatments with us have straightened out your misaligned teeth, you will find them much easier to keep clean with brushing and flossing. There will be far fewer crevices for plaque and tartar to build up in and for food to hide in. Less plaque means a lower risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
When your teeth have been aligned, and your bite corrected, it will eradicate a great deal of unnecessary pain. Pain comes from teeth that do not bite together properly. The uneven distribution of chewing pressure creates pain in the teeth that bear the brunt of the work, and this can, in turn, create pain in the jaw muscle and joint, and even headaches and neck ache.
What are your options?
When you choose orthodontics in Weybridge, we have several systems for realigning teeth and balancing out the bite, each with its own benefits.
If you want to make sure no one knows about your treatment, you might go for braces fitted to the inside of your teeth. These lingual braces use wires and brackets to gently move teeth into a new position, but they are hidden behind your teeth, not in front.
If you are happy with discreet braces on your front teeth, in Weybridge, orthodontics has treatments with transparent ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured wires that blend in with your teeth rather than dominating them.
We also offer clear aligners. These plastic trays fit it snugly over the teeth and are removable for eating, drinking and cleaning.
Orthodontics in Weybridge is available for both children and adults.
