Teeth Straightening

When asked what we’d change about our smile, many of us wish that our teeth were straighter. Crooked or overcrowded teeth can leave us feeling self-conscious about how our smile looks. We can’t help how our teeth grow, it’s not something we can control, but we can use orthodontic treatments to gently guide and move teeth to a healthier and neater position.

Straightening your teeth your way

With orthodontics, there are lots of different options for you to achieve the best result for you. That’s why we have a range of different systems to give you as much choice as possible.

Everyone’s smile is different. We have options that can help correct more significant misalignment as well as more subtle options to neaten a few crooked teeth. During an initial consultation, we’ll chat through what options are available to you and what we think would be best to help you achieve the best results.

Why straight smiles are healthy smiles

A better bite

Orthodontics is all about getting your teeth into a normal bite position so your teeth can function the way they are supposed to. During your dental appointments, right back from an early age, your dentist will have been keeping an eye on how your teeth come together.

If there’s some misalignment, you may be vulnerable to tooth wear and future jaw problems. A properly aligned bite functions as it should and protects your teeth.

Easier to clean

Crooked and overcrowded teeth have a tendency to overlap, creating spaces that are tricky for toothbrush bristles to reach. They create problem areas where plaque and tartar builds up, making the surrounding gums vulnerable to bacteria. Straightening these teeth frees them up so it’s much easier to keep clean, helping to prevent gum disease.

Good for self-confidence

Feeling good about your smile will make you feel good about yourself, and that is always a healthy way to be. Boosts to your self-esteem help you to have a positive mental attitude towards yourself. With a straight smile, you’ll no longer be worried about hiding your teeth and will be smiling with confidence.

Who can have teeth straightening?

As long as you have healthy teeth and gums, you can have straightening. The best time to have any orthodontic treatment is during the early to mid-teens, but this is purely because the teeth respond better to movement when the jaw bone is young and more pliable.

Adult straightening is more popular now thanks to more subtle treatments, such as Invisalign, being readily available.
