If you are unhappy with the general appearance of your teeth or have problems with your bite and the way the top and bottom teeth line up against each other, you may wish to consider having orthodontic treatment.

Treatment does require good oral hygiene habits and regular visits to the practice for check-ups and adjustments. Depending on the extent of the alignment required with your teeth, treatment can take several months to a year with reliable results. Thanks to fixed permanent retention, you can be assured that your teeth won’t move after treatment.

Orthodontics is a good choice for the following reasons:

    1. It is usually a non-invasive procedure, but due to recent advancements, teeth neither have to be extracted nor damaged in many situations to achieve optimum results.

    1. The procedure is painless and rarely requires the need for local anaesthetic.

    1. With proper retainers, minimal long-term management is required; unlike other treatments, no artificial materials exist. Therefore no need for future replacements (ex., crowns, veneers or fillings).

The main benefit of orthodontic treatment is that straighter teeth are healthier. When your bite is properly aligned, and your teeth are straightened, there are fewer gaps and areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth, causing decay. In that sense, orthodontics is a long-term investment in your oral health.
