The practice of orthodontics in Weybridge addresses the alignment of your teeth. If you have a misaligned smile, the likelihood is that you will need to utilise some sort of equipment to set things right again.
When you come for a consultation for orthodontics in Weybridge at Weybridge Orthodontics, we help you choose the equipment that is right for you. Sometimes, we need to recommend a specific solution as the best one to tackle your issue. At other times, you may be able to choose between some of the leading dental brands like Damon, Invisalign, Incognito or Six Month Smiles.
Whether you choose fixed braces or a removable option, you will need to take care of your teeth and equipment in specific ways when you get home. Advising you how to do this is part of the service that we offer when you have orthodontics in Weybridge.
You wear fixed braces for the duration of your treatment. This means that you may need to modify your food choices a little. You only need to avoid very hard or sticky foods as these can damage your braces. You may also choose to avoid mushy, fibrous foods or those with a dense texture as these can get stuck in your braces and make them difficult to clean.
To progress your treatment with fixed braces, all you need to do is prevent damage to your equipment and visit your dentist regularly for a check-up and adjustment.
In some ways, removable aligners are easier because you take them out to eat. This means that you can eat whatever you like. However, you also need to reinsert your aligner as soon as possible and make sure that you brush your teeth before you do. This means that you need to carry cleaning equipment with you at all times. You may wish to invest in a small travel toothbrush kit to help with this.
Removable aligners are given to you in a series. You need to work you way through the sequence to achieve the results you want. Your dentist will give you the interval time for changing your aligners but you need to responsible for making the swap.
