The purpose of orthodontic treatment is to make the best of your teeth. This includes allowing you to bite correctly, eat more comfortably, and to care for your teeth and gums more easily. And your smile will benefit, too. Common conditions requiring orthodontic treatment are:
The ideal age to have orthodontic treatment is around 12 or 13, while you're still growing. The opportunity for improvement in an adult is more limited and surgery is more likely to be needed.
Treatment usually lasts from 18 months to two years, during which visits to Station House Dental & Implant Clinic are needed every four to six weeks.
There are many different types of braces. Some are removable, which you take out at night, to eat a meal, or clean. At Station House Dental & Implant Clinic we offer invisalign clear aligners and hidden braces for private treatments.
Following completion of your course of treatment, you will be required to wear a retainer for a number of hours a day or at night, to ensure your teeth remain in their new position. Your Glossop dentist will advise you of how long you need to wear your retainer for on completion of your treatment.
