Who benefits from orthodontic treatment?
Most people who suffer from crowded or crooked teeth, or have teeth that don’t meet correctly when they bite can benefit from orthodontics in Weybridge. If these types of dental problems are left untreated it can cause more damage and put a strain on jaw muscles. In extreme cases, abnormal development of the teeth and jaw can affect the shape of the face.
Orthodontics in Weybridge are popular with adults; however, a large proportion of patients are young teenagers whose teeth are still developing, making them the ideal age for orthodontic treatment. The teeth are easier to manipulate whilst they are still developing, and the treatment is less likely to be as long when you are younger, compared to if you had orthodontic treatment as an adult.
