If you are unhappy with the general appearance of your teeth, or have problems with your bite and the way the top and bottom teeth line up against each other, you may wish to consider having orthodontic treatment.
Treatment does require good oral hygiene habits and regular visits to the practice for check-ups and adjustments. Depending on the extent of the alignment required with your teeth, treatment can take from several months to a year with reliable results. Thanks to fixed permanent retention you can be assured that your teeth won’t move after treatment is completed. Orthodontics is a good choice for the following reasons;
1) It is usually a non-invasive procedure, due to recent advancements, in many situations teeth neither have to be extracted or damaged to achieve optimum results.
2) The procedure is painless and rarely requires the need for local anaesthetic.
3) With proper retainers, minimal long term management is required and unlike other treatments, there is no artificial materials. Therefore no need for future replacements, (ex. crowns, veneers or fillings).
The main benefit of having orthodontic treatment is that straighter teeth are healthier teeth. When your bite is properly aligned and your teeth are straightened, there are less gaps and areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth, causing decay. In that sense, orthodontics is a long-term investment in your oral health.
