Orthodontist Altrincham

Orthodontic treatment is most often used to improve the appearance and alignment of crooked, protruding or crowded teeth, and to correct problems with the bite of the teeth.

Why is orthodontics used?

The benefits of orthodontics can include:

  • correction of dental crowding and straightening of your teeth
  • correction of your bite so the front and back teeth meet evenly
  • reducing the chance of damage to prominent teeth
  • improving your appearance, including your smile

Many people have crowded or crooked teeth, or their teeth don’t meet correctly when they bite. These problems can mean the teeth are more likely to become damaged or put a strain on jaw muscles. In some cases, abnormal development of the teeth and jaw can affect the shape of the face. Orthodontics can also be used to treat other health problems, such as a cleft lip palate or cases of mild sleep apnoea.

--- Types of Orthodontic Treatment ---

Invisalign

This is a course of plastic aligners that help slowly straighten your teeth over a series of months. You will receive different aligners over a set period that varies in shape depending on how well your teeth are straightening. The plastic aligner is an upgrade from the conventional fixed metal braces, with its clear, suttle design and is easily removable when eating food or brushing teeth to make it so convenient for your daily life. The aligners will fit your teeth perfectly every time as they will be custom-designed to your teething layout by using our 3D imaging process.

Benfits of Invisalign:

  • The clear design means that not many people will notice you wearing them, allowing for a stylish look.
  • The movement of your teeth is more precise than conventional braces.
  • Much better hygiene and convenience as the aligners are removable, which means you are able to remove them when eating or brushing your teeth.
  • Your day-to-day life will be easier than with traditional metal braces as they won’t irritate your teeth and gums, whilst also requiring fewer check-ups with your dental practice.

- Taking Care of your Teeth -

A common complication of orthodontics is tooth decay. You can get tooth decay when acid is produced from plaque, which builds up on your teeth. Many people with appliances find it difficult to keep their teeth clean, so extra brushing is essential during treatment.
