Orthodontic treatment is good for your health and appearance of both your face and teeth. A malocclusion can exist without immediate or painful symptoms and many people tend to adapt to the improper relationship between the jaws and the teeth to such an extent that they consider it to be normal. The unfortunate truth is that these problems often become worse if left undetected and untreated. Orthodontic braces can be used to correct malocclusions.
In order to clarify if you can benefit from Orthodontic treatment, a consultation with a specialist Orthodontist is necessary. Firstly, we listen to your thoughts, and hopes concerning your teeth. A thorough Orthodontic examination is then carried out, usually including diagnostic records of your mouth, such as taking moulds of your teeth (known as Impressions), special x-rays and photographs. After observing the condition of your teeth, gums and supporting bones to determine the potential for improving your smile and dental health, we will discuss the options with you, and inform you of what your treatment will involve. You will also be informed on the costs of NHS and Private treatment.
