The positioning of your teeth affects your oral health as well as your dental appearance. When teeth are crooked, they can be tricky to keep clean, which increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. When your bite is misaligned, your jaw has to work extra hard, which can lead to unnecessary strain. At Weybridge Orthodontics, we offer a range of contemporary, innovative treatments to correct the dental alignment problems of people in Weybridge. Orthodontics can give you a great-looking smile and enhanced oral health.
The advantages of orthodontics in Weybridge
While small imperfections in the teeth can be highly noticeable, the good news is that minor adjustments can bring improvements that feel major. When you come to us for orthodontics in Weybridge, we’ll get to know your dental history, so that we can recommend the most appropriate way forward. Our wide range of options gives you the chance to make the most effective choice to improve your teeth.
If it’s your front teeth that give you cause for concern, a treatment like Six Month Smiles might be suitable. This uses a discreet aligner to make relatively small and speedy adjustments to your most visible teeth.
In contrast, a treatment like Invisalign is given over a longer span of time, often a year or more. This type of Weybridge orthodontics involves wearing a series of transparent plastic aligners. Customised to precisely fit your teeth, you’ll wear one set of these aligners for around 7-10 days before moving on to the next set in the series. You can take them out of your mouth when it’s time to brush your teeth or eat a meal. They are a user-friendly and discreet way to improve your dental positioning.
It might be best if you wore fixed braces. In contemporary treatments like Incognito, the braces can be attached to the backs of your teeth. This way, they can do their work without attracting unwanted attention to your appearance. Having orthodontics in Weybridge at our friendly dental practice, you’ll experience a customised, personalised and effective treatment. While it may take some time to achieve, the results will last for many years after the braces come off.
