“A smile is a curve that sets everything straight”.
Orthodontic treatment is used to correct crooked teeth or teeth that do not fit well together; such teeth are harder to keep clean, are at risk of decay, cause extra stress on your chewing muscles, and can detract from the appearance of your smile. Braces are the most common fixed appliances, and when placed they gradually move your teeth to their proper position within a few months or a few years. The braces used today are much smaller, lighter and reveal less metal than in the past. In some cases, it is best for children to start orthodontic treatment before all their permanent teeth grow. Children can choose from a range of brightly coloured braces. However it’s never too late to improve the health and appearance of your smile. Adults are increasingly receiving orthodontic treatment, and can choose clear or tooth coloured braces. Benefits of orthodontic treatment include:
1. A healthier mouth;
2. A confident smile;
3. Teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.
