Many people have crowded or crooked teeth. Orthodontic treatment will straighten the teeth or move them into a better position. This can improve their appearance and the way the teeth bite together, as well as making them easier to clean.
Some people have front teeth that stick out and look unsightly. These prominent teeth are more likely to be damaged but orthodontic treatment can move them back into line.
Or the way the upper and lower jaws close together (the “bite”) may be abnormal leading to jaw and joint pain, even headaches, as well as looking unsightly. Orthodontic treatment can normalize the bite producing a better cosmetic result and relieving jaw strain and joint pain.
Many types of orthodontic treatment are available:
- Invisible braces such as Invisalign and lingual braces (Incognito)
- Fast braces such as clear aligners, Inman Aligner and 6 Month Smiles
- Traditional metal braces
- Removable and fixed retainers to hold the teeth in place once they have been straightened
