Do you wish you had straighter teeth? You may be worrying about your how you look or experiencing pain or difficulties with eating or speaking. If this sounds like you, then Weybridge Orthodontics can help. Orthodontics focuses on how the teeth, jaws and face develop. Treatment is best carried out during childhood when there is a mixture of baby and adult teeth. Every year over 200,000 children and teenagers in England and Wales have orthodontic treatment and make a long-term investment in their health and wellbeing. However, if you an adult who has missed out on corrective procedures as a child, you can still have work done now.
What are the benefits?
Straighter teeth look better which enhances your self-esteem and improves your confidence. They are also healthier. Teeth which are properly aligned are easier to clean as there are fewer gaps in which plaque can accumulate. Correctly positioned teeth are also more stable as they are properly supported and less likely to move around in the mouth, get damaged or become loose. For our patients in Weybridge, orthodontics has also helped with discomfort due to poorly positioned teeth as well as issues around using the mouth normally. You may associate orthodontics with metal braces but there are now a variety of different techniques available to suit your needs.
Options to suit everyone
We offer orthodontics in Weybridge for a range of issues, from resolving crowded or poorly spaced teeth to aligning upper or lower dental arches and correcting the bite of the teeth. A good bite allows the upper and lower sets to meet and work together properly during eating. While we offer metal braces, advances in dental technology have allowed us to also provide faster, more comfortable treatment that is much less obtrusive. Modern braces make use of materials such as tooth-coloured wires and brackets or clear plastic in the form of aligners. You can have the smile you want without the inconvenience, discomfort and unsightliness of traditional methods. With many braces, the treatment time is shorter than before, so it can often save you money too.
