Is teeth straightening right for me?
Teeth straightening is appropriate for many people providing their teeth and gums are in healthy condition. A fifteen-minute complimentary mini consult can quickly establish if teeth straightening is the correct option for you. Following this, an additional assessment can be organised at a time that’s convenient for you.
Does it hurt to get your teeth straightened?
When new braces, aligners or brackets are first fitted, a little discomfort can be expected and pain relief will perhaps be needed. We will provide you with soft wax for placing over new brackets and recommendations on what to expect and the way to handle any problems.
How do I care for my teeth while I am having teeth straightening work done?
Keeping your mouth meticulously clean is critical whilst treatment is on going, as your gums and teeth are especially vulnerable during this phase. We will demonstrate how to maintain your teeth and suggest how often you should be seeing the hygienist. We will also recommend which products to use for extra enamel protection.
How effective is teeth straightening?
Following case evaluation, achieving a successful outcome depends on the commitment of both patient and dental surgeon. It is important to maintain consistent visits and follow care directions on wearing the new appliance. After the treatment has finished, we take retention very seriously and will guarantee wires or removable retainers for up to 1 year.
Am I too old to have my teeth straightened?
More and more patients are having orthodontic treatment and we are seeing very satisfying outcomes across all demographics. Following clinical appraisal, we will be able to tell you if teeth straightening is the right choice for you.
