What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the practice of correcting irregular alignment of teeth or bite by the use of braces.

Dental braces (also known as ‘orthodontic braces’, or simply ‘braces’) are used to align and straighten teeth. Now more than ever invisible orthodontics and clear braces can be used to straighten teeth in as little as 6 weeks in some cases.

There are a number of teeth straightening options available for both adults and children. According to the British Dental Journal 75% of the UK population could benefit from some type of orthodontics work.

What are the benefits of braces?

Orthodontics enable you to have a beautiful and healthy smile. Braces can straighten crooked or crowded teeth, overbites and under-bites, as well as correct jaw position. Dental braces can correct poor tooth position that can cause jaw joint problems, disorders and even TMD.

If you have a cross bite or misaligned teeth, braces can help you to avoid a number of oral health related problems such as discomfort when eating food or plaque build-ups which might lead to decay, periodontal or gum disease.
