It is never too late
If you have been thinking about about having your teeth straightened, or have been impressed with the changes seen in your children, you are not alone. More adults are becoming interested in orthodontic treatment due to improved dental awareness. It is never too late to address those slightly crooked front teeth or the deep bite that is wearing the enamel on the lower teeth.
Adults can have existing conditions such as gum disease that need to be assessed and managed prior to orthodontic treatment. Failure to do so can result in increased loss of bone that are supporting the teeth. As a specialist practice, you can be assured that we will liaise with your general dentist and other dental professionals to achieve the best outcome.
Orthodontics has come a long way since the days of metal bands. Aesthetic alternatives to traditional metal braces are available. At The Smiling Orthodontist, we offer Invisalign, Ceramic Brackets and Lingual Braces. Furthermore, if you have had previous orthodontic treatment in your teens and the teeth have moved slightly, you do not need to have full braces again. You may be suitable for accelerated treatment of 6-9 months of just the top or the bottom teeth.
The above options are not suitable for everyone. Our orthodontist will undertake a thorough assessment to provide you with options that are specific to your needs so you can smile with confidence! Book an appointment today to find the best option for you.
