Adult orthodontic treatment
Many adults are now enjoying the benefits of orthodontic treatment. Perhaps you missed the opportunity to have treatment as a child or maybe you have had treatment but your teeth are now moving out of place.
Orthodontic care is about a change for the better; no matter what your age you can have the confidence that comes with straight teeth and an attractive smile.
As well as the cosmetic enhancement you will gain from orthodontic care, you may also benefit from improvements in dental health. Crowded teeth are harder to look after properly and may contribute to tooth decay, gum disease and even tooth loss. Other problems may cause abnormal wear of the teeth or misalignment of the jaw joints.
How long will treatment take?
Adult teeth can be moved in much the same way as if you were still in your teens. We find that adult treatments take no longer than teenagers. Some treatments may take only a few months!
What will treatment cost?
The cost of orthodontic care varies according to the nature and severity of your problem as well as the type of treatment. We offer a number of options for meeting these costs, and payment plans are available to suit individual needs.
An orthodontic assessment carried out by a specialist orthodontist will provide you with the information to help you decide if orthodontics is for you. You will receive a thorough examination and all the various options will be explained to you in detail.
Many patients require a combination of different cosmetic dentistry treatments. We can advise and help to plan treatment, by liaising with your dentist to ensure the best possible results.
