Orthodontics (straightening teeth) is the best way of correcting the position of crooked teeth. Moving your teeth, rather than adjusting them, produces a smile which, with the appropriate care, will last a lifetime. Unfortunately, many people have the impression that braces look like a row of train tracks, with modern techniques this is no longer true.
At your consultation we will talk about your aims for treatment, assess your mouth and then discuss the options that are available to you. Our aim is always to give you the best advice so you can make an informed decision about your treatment. Once you know all your options we will choose the correct path that is right for you.
With so many different options around it’s easy to get confused over which option is the best one for you. Ultimately the best option by far is a brace that is glued to your teeth allowing full control over the movement of your teeth. They undoubtedly provide the best end result, usually in the most cost effective way.
If you want something that “looks” better you need to sacrifice the end result a little. Invisalign and Six month smiles are both valid techniques but they do not provide the control or the end result that a conventional brace does.
In our experience all you will care about once you start brace treatment is how the end result will look. You won’t care about the brace itself, just how effective it is in getting the job done.
