Introduction to Orthodontics
Nothing is more important than a genuine, heartfelt smile. Whether in your professional life or when socialising, an attractive smile can make you feel happier and more confident as well as make the right impression!
Orthodontic treatment uses appliances to straighten teeth and gradually move them into more ideal positions over time. As well as greatly improving aesthetic appeal, orthodontic corrections improve the evenness and function of your bite and reduce your risk of undesirable problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.
Children and adults can be treated with orthodontics, indeed, it’s easier to correct aspects of the bite at a young age than it is years down the line. Early interventions are also used to correct severe problems with the way the jaw fits together, usually during adolescence.
