Orthodontics (Braces)

At the Family Dental Practice, we have a special interest in Orthodontics. We have treated many children over the years. We are now finding that an increasing number of adult patients are requesting this treatment. Treatment times can vary from 6 months to 2 years depending on the complexity. Most brace treatment involves cementing small blocks onto the teeth. This enables full control of tooth movement to align the teeth, for a perfect smile. We find that for most children braces are a fashion accessory, indeed at each visit we place different colours on the brace according to the patient’s wishes, we aim to please our patients with a careful consideration of their age. Adults sometimes prefer us to place clear ceramic components on the teeth. These braces are white and mostly transparent so that they can hardly be seen. Sometimes we may suggest orthodontic treatment, followed by veneers or crowns to enable a perfect smile. Every mouth is different; therefore if you have any concerns about the appearance of your teeth then please arrange an appointment. At this appointment we can take photographs and discuss fully with you the treatment options, costs, and the time involved.
